For the first time since being sentenced to 15 months in prison for various kinds of financial fraud, Teresa Giudice has spoken out about her frightening future.
With Bravo cameras rolling, of course.
For a special taped interview that will air tonight, Giudice was asked by Andy Cohen for her reaction to the punishment, holding the hand of husband Joe Giudice as she searched for the proper words as a response.
"I was so nervous yesterday that I was shaking,” Teresa told Cohen.
“My nerves were pulling. At one point, I couldn’t move my fingers. They were stuck. I couldn’t open my hands. My nerves were shot. I’ve had sleepless nights. I, of course, I was shocked."
"It was very unexpected. I don’t even know what to say."
On Friday, after Joe Giudice was sentenced to 41 months behind bars, a New Jersey judge said she had to make an "example" out of Teresa, surprising many who believed The Real Housewives of New Jersey law breaker would avoid jail altogether.
