Anyway, Teresa says she plans to continue with her career on Real Housewives of New Jersey and as for accusations that she's not taking her legal situation seriously, she said putting on a stoic face is all for the sake of her children.
“Look — every family has problems. Nobody’s perfect,” Teresa tells In Touch Weekly (does she have a contract with them again?!). “I have to be strong for my kids.” Yeah, nobody's perfect but most of us imperfect people manage to avoid allegedly defrauding the government of millions. Teresa and Joe have plead not guilty and plan to contest the situation in a trial scheduled for this February.

Teresa reveals that unfortunately oldest daughter Gia, now 12, has been the most affected by the situation. “She’s the only one who knows anything is going on, so I do everything I can to make her feel comfortable,” Teresa admits. Teresa is apparently "terrified" but advising the girls to just live their lives and try to avoid making the same mistakes she has.
She also reveals she's hired a legal coach and crisis management expert Wendy Feldman to help minimize the impact. Hey – now there's a reality show! #SpinOffAlert “I just want my daughters to grow up healthy and happy,” Teresa says. "I want the kids to enjoy their childhood. And to be the best mom I can be.”
In order to help her children achieve that, Teresa says she's putting on a happy face and keepin' on with keepin' on! "You’ve got to keep living life and being positive. You can’t just curl up in a ball and crawl into a hole. What’s that going to do?"
Well I agree with her there! Besides with all Teresa's mounting legal debt and the bankruptcy charges she's attempting to repay she needs to work, work, work and that translates into werq!
