Lea Black, a fellow Housewife with familiarity to the legal process, is speaking out about the Real Housewives of New Jersey star and she feels terrible about the predicament the Giudices have found themselves in.
"The consequences may be bigger than anyone would think," Lea told PEOPLE. Lea says her "heart breaks" for Teresa's girls and the family. "It's a bad situation for them to be in."
And she thinks those around Teresa should remain positive. "You don't kick someone when they're down. They've got four kids, they're in a lot of trouble and they're trying to survive." Lea also comments that Teresa may need "help" raising the girls because of the possibility of Juicy "going away."

Jill Zarin, who is never far when it comes to commenting on her former place of employment, also feels bad for Teresa and offers a helping hand. Is she going to make her a prison jumpsuit with Zarin Fabrics?!
"She is a sweet girl and a good mother. I only want the best for her and her family,"Jill said. "I want Teresa to know I'm there for her. I feel like [we're] Housewives and that we should all support each other in times of need like this."
Jill also reminds us that reality TV leaves no stone unturned! "Many reality stars are naïve if they think that anything that they've done in the past won't be scrutinized," Jill advised. "Being a reality star comes with the good and the bad."
Moving on, rumor has it that RHONJ which was scheduled to begin filming season 6 in the fall, may be stepping up production dates to capture Teresa and Joe's legal woes! In the midst of some outlets questioning whether Bravo even wants Teresa on the show (and predicting that any future spinoff plans are off the table), RumorFix reports that insiders are hinting that the show is to begin filming as soon as possible!
When Melissa Gorga was asked about production times, she played coy and simply shrugged her shoulders. Teresa and Joe are due back in court next week to enter a plea! Both are expected to plead Not Guilty.
And finally, despite news that her endorsements may be canceled and that she's not allowed to leave NY or NJ, Teresa – and Joe! – are making plans to go to Florida! Say what?! Perhaps Teresa feels since the NY State Fair no longer wants her, she'll try the Sunshine State!
As part of their bail agreement both Giudices were reportedly required to surrender their passports and were not allowed to leave NY or NJ. Teresa brushed aside the rumors on twitter.
"Juicy Joe will be going with me see u in Florida," she added. Teresa will be going to Pangea in Hollywood, FL. And since she's the queen of putting on a happy face, Teresa and Joe also spent the weekend vacationing in the Hamptons with Dina Manzo and their daughters. Nothing like a last hurrah?
