If Teresa Giudice is looking for sympathy these days, she may wanna look someplace other than in the heart of a former member of the Bravo family.
With Giudice and her husband facing 39 counts of fraud and up to five decades in jail, Bethenny Frankel was asked yesterday about Teresa's legal plight.
"I haven't paid that much attention," Frankel said at the Television Critics Association summer press tour. "Do I feel sorry for them? No, I don't. Not so much, because it broke the law."
"You broke the law and you went on television. That's not really that smart."
Frankel is going through an ugly divorce from Jason Hoppy, however.
And because the estranged couple has a young daughter, the talk show maven and successful entrepreneur does feel for Teresa and Joe Giudice's four children.
"Their kids didn't sign up for this," she said.
The Giudices are the parents to Gia, 12, Gabriella, 10, Milania, 7, and Audriana, 3.
They are due in court against on August 14 and Joe Giudice - technically an Italian citizen - could be deported if he's found guilty on certain charges.
Teresa is doing her best to remain calm in the face of such a possibility.
Bethenny, most likely, does not care. At all.
