Teresa Giudice: Focused on Setting "Good Example" For Daughters

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Teresa Giudice may be going through some major financial and legal problems with husband Joe, but don't expect her to stop working anytime soon.

That wouldn't be setting a good example for her kids, after all.

"I'm not going to stop working. Now I'm in it and I'm going to work until who knows when," the reality star told Entertainment Tonight this week.

"The good thing about working [is] it's a good example to show to my daughters. Mommy's a businesswoman, and hopefully they'll follow in my footsteps."

Teresa Giudice, 41, and embattled husband Joe, 43, are parents to four young daughters: Gia, 13, Gabriella, 10, Milania, 7, and Audriana, 3.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey firebrand says her cookbook signing was scheduled long in advance, and she didn't feel a need to reschedule Wednesday.

When she pleaded not guilty to federal fraud charges, that is.

"It was so weird," she said. "When I heard my court date was August 14, I was like gosh, I know I have something on August 14 ... and it was my book signing."

"Of course I wasn't going to cancel, there's no need to cancel."

Hours earlier, Joe and Teresa pleaded not guilty to a 39-count indictment that includes everything from mail and wire fraud to bank and bankruptcy fraud.

"They vehemently deny guilt," Joe's lawyer, Miles Feinstein, said. "There's an assumption of innocence and they vehemently assert their innocence."

"We have told them to continue life as they've lived it," the Newark Star-Ledger quotes him as saying. "They have a family, they have to support themselves."

"They shouldn't imprison themselves at this time."

If found guilty of the charges, the couple could face more than 50 years in prison, and Joe could take the fall in some kind of plea deal, insiders say.

Non-U.S. citizen Joe could also be deported, of course, but most likely nothing will happen until the duo returns to court for a pre-trial hearing October 3.
