The Real Housewives Of New Jersey is poised to return October 4, so we know what that means…press tours for Teresa Giudice! In a recent interview, Teresa touches on the themes that have run her life for the past several years: fraud, prison, and hustling for money.

While Joe Giudice serves his sentence in New Jersey’s Fort Dix Correctional Institution, Teresa is back home trying to earn a buck to support their four daughters. Bravo paychecks, ghost written memoirs, and paid promotional appearances are keeping the family afloat for now – but how long will it last? According to Teresa, it better last a while, because she doesn’t want to depend on Joe for anything ever again!

Teresa Guidice has become the break-out star for Real Housewives of New Jersey. But unfortunately with fame and success there often comes a price. While Teresa’s third cookbook has already landed on the NY Times Bestseller list, her home life and family life remain in upheaval. And while she was competing on the hugely popular Celebrity Apprentice her friends and co-stars have all but disowned her.

Plagued by rumors of her husband’s infidelity, along with his legal and financial woes, Teresa put her big girl panties on and went to work. And apparently, Mrs. Giudice, who despite her tongue twisted ways, appears to be a bit of a marketing genius. Teresa intends to have the last laugh and spin all of the drama to her favor. In a new story by Us Weekly several sources reveal Teresa’s plans to turn lemons into fabulicous lemonade.

Teresa’s marriage has been making headlines since the first season of RHONJ, while Joe Giudice often behaves like a drunken buffoon, Teresa consistently defends him. “Teresa puts on blinders when it comes to Joe,” a family insider tells the mag. “It’s difficult for her to accept he’s such a scumbag.” Indeed, Teresa recently confessed to losing her virginity to her husband of twelve years, and she has ardently defended him through all his tribulations.
