Teresa and Joe Giudice celebrated their 15th wedding anniversary last week, and given all the couple has been through, one has to wonder if it's their last.

"Celebrated our 15 yr Anniversary 10/23/99 With the Love of my Life," Teresa wrote on a caption on a photo on her Instagram account of the two.

If you watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online, or read any celebrity news sites, you know the next year is going to be their toughest yet.

Then, if they survive that, the next few will be tougher still.

Teresa is headed to the Orange is the New Black prison January 5 to serve 15 months behind bars for her role in the duo's failed mortgage fraud scheme.

The Danbury, Conn., facility has been made famous by the Netflix original series, based on a book by the same name. It's about to get a very famous face.

On The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6 Episode 15, sooo many secrets were revealed in this first segment of the Bravo show's reunion special.

Or so we were promised. You know how it is with these things living up to the hype, although in this case, the ladies' Atlantic City weekend did get interesting.

For Amber Marchese, the events of The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6 Episode 15 were a first, as she'd never been away from her kids that long.

To calm the nerves, her solution is to drink through the stress.

Sounds about right. Drinks are pounded from the get-go.

Meanwhile, Joe Giudice is at home alone taking care of the kids while Teresa goes on the girls' weekend and Milania calls her approximately 200 times.

The twins are late as everyone goes to play blackjack, which is a point of contention as you'll see if you watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online.

In an effort to avoid prison time, Joe Giudice claimed to be an alcoholic in court, and his lawyer asked a judge to send Joe to rehab instead of prison.

Juicy Joe's Looking Bored

It didn't work, and Giudice was sentenced to 41 months in jail, but that doesn't mean he was lying about his addiction.

"Joe's been known to start drinking hard alcohol at 10 am," a Giudice family friend tells Radar Online. "It's been going on for years, even when things were going good for them."

"He'll start screaming at the girls like, 'Shut up!' It's all good-natured, but it could seem harsh to an outsider."

So that's the Giudice family's idea of "good natured?" No wonder Teresa's temper is notorious even in the rage-fueled world of the Real Housewives franchise.

Teresa Giudice has been sentenced to serve her 15-month prison term at the Danbury, Conn., location where the series Orange is the New Black is based.

Teresa Giudice: Orange is the New Black!

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star was fired by her crisis manager earlier this week, allegedly for trying to orchestrate a move to this very spot.

Wendy Feldman ended her contract with her high profile client on Monday, for not following due process in her representations to the Bureau of Prisons.

Conflicting reports said that she tried to secure a place in a halfway house, which would have allowed her to work and visit home during the weekend.

In any case, a judge shot down her halfway house request, saying that her timing for such applications was all wrong and sending her off to Danbury.

Guidice, who was sentenced to 15 months in prison for fraud and conspiracy with her husband Joe Giudice (who got 41 months) is free until January 5.

Ever since news broke that Jacqueline Laurita will return to The Real Housewives of New Jersey, reaction from fans and current cast members has been decidedly mixed.

With Teresa Giudice headed to prison for 15 months, producers were left with few options with regard to women who are available and might be able to bring a tenth of the drama that Queen T brought to the table.

Laurita seemed a safe - if not perfect - choice, but now it seems that adding her to the cast may have left execs with another vacancy to fill.

Sources say Dina Manzo was furious to learn Laurita will be returning to the show, and now it looks like her anger may have prompted her to quit the series.

The ongoing saga of Teresa Giudice's legal troubles just keeps getting weirder and weirder.

Here's a quick run-down to bring you up to speed:

Teresa Giudice: Telling It Like It Is

Earlier this month, Teresa was sentenced to 15 months in prison. She tried to get out of it (even though she'd signed a plea deal); she gave some lucrative pre-prison interviews, and then she hired an ex-con "crisis manager."

Within days, the crisis manager - Wendy Feldman - had scored Teresa a tell-all book deal and helped her land a cushy prison assignment.

It looked like there was finally a silver lining in the dark cloud that is Teresa's life. So naturally, she had to go and paint it black:

Even though the delusional reality star is still fighting her sentence, there's officially no getting around it: Teresa Giudice will serve 15 months in prison beginning on January 5.

Though you'd think they'd have enough drama in their lives, sources say the Giudices are arguing about how to spend their last Christmas together before they're separated for several years.

(Joe Giudice will begin his 41 month sentence after Teresa completes hers.)

We're not sure if the felonious couple have agreed on how to spend the holidays yet, but one thing's for sure - it will be a lucrative affair for the entire family.

Teresa and Bravo have reportedly reached a deal for a Giudice family Christmas special that will pay the Real Housewife $250,000, with bonus checks being handed out to the rest of the family.

As you probably already know if you watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online, the Giudice family goes all out for Christmas.

Of course, the lavish spending that usually characterizes their holiday season probably contributed to the Giudices committing fraud to cover their expenses and being sentenced to federal prison. 

Even so, Teresa reportedly wants to have a typically extravagant yuletide celebration complete with pricey gifts for the kids. Predictably, her husband Joe is having none of it.

"Teresa had hoped to give the girls an over-the-top Christmas because she is going to be reporting to prison on January 5," a source tells Radar Online. 

"Typically, Teresa would spend $10,000 just on gifts for the girls. From designer handbags, jewelry, one of a kind dolls, there isn't anything that the girls asked for and didn't get."

Teresa Aprea is under fire for her comments about the embattled Teresa Giudice on Sunday's The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6 Episode 14.

Aprea's remarks regarding the jail-bound Giudice sparked intense backlash online, and she tried to walk them back later on Watch What Happens Live.

Declaring that she and Giudice are in a better place since the time in which the finale was filmed, she said she was coming from a place of anger then.

A place she is no longer in, Aprea insists.

Venting about the rumor Giudice allegedly spread - that her husband Rino banged her mom - she let loose on Giudice in a testimonial on the season finale.

Aprea boasted that Giudice’s family had been “destroyed” as result of her bad karma after she “s--t all over [Aprea’s] family” by spreading the rumor.

“Karma’s a bitch, clink, clink,” Aprea told the Bravo cameras, even going so far as to mimic her wrists clanking together, as if she were being handcuffed.

Despite the fact that Teresa Giudice is still trying to get out of her prison sentence, there's no way that the reality star won't be getting locked up on January 5.

It gets worse than that, too. There's a new wrinkle ...

Teresa Giudice: Skeptical

As though that news wasn't bad enough, it now seems Teresa's 15-month sentence will just be the first leg of her incarceration, as Radar Online reports the mother of four will serve several months in a halfway house after she's released.

"The first two months she will be living in a halfway house," says a source close to Teresa. "During the day, she will be expected to get a job, or look for one. She will be allowed to see the girls, but will have to spend the night at the halfway house."

The source adds that Teresa may be required to stay in the halfway house even longer than two months if officials are not happy with her progress.

As you may have guessed the famously hot-tempered Teresa is not thrilled about the arrangement:
