As Teresa Giudice's prison sentence draws near, sources say the reality star-turned-felon is beginning to panic.

At first, Teresa tried to get out of going to prison altogether - an impossibility under the terms of her plea deal - and now she's moved on to trying to push back the first day of her sentence as much as possible.

Juicy Joe's Looking Bored

And how is Teresa attempting to delay the inevitable? By exploiting her husband's drinking problem, of course!

Yes, Teresa reportedly believes that if she can convince a judge that Joe Giudice needs rehab, the court will push back the start of her sentence until he's done with his treatment.

"Teresa wants Joe to go to rehab first," a source tells Radar.  "Teresa's lawyers would then ask the judge to delay the surrender date because their wouldn't be a parent in the house to take care of their four daughters."

Gia Giudice has a message for anyone who wants to send a message of sympathy to her and her infamous family:

Thanks, but no thanks!

The 13-year old daughter of Teresa Giudice - who folks often see when they watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online - spoke to Access Hollywood about her parents' impending prison sentences this week and sang a positive tune.

Two Giudices

"Obviously any news that is hurtful or horrible to hear is so upsetting," Gia said. "But my family is probably one of the strongest families I know, so we'll get through this. It's gonna be fine. And when it's over, we're gonna be better than ever."

It begins early next month when Teresa Giudice begins serving a 15-month jail term for multiple counts of financial fraud.

After she is set free, husband Joe Giudice will serve 41 months behind bars.

At first, it looked as though being sentenced to prison would be the worst thing to ever happen to Teresa Giudice's public image.

Yet somehow, the reality star/felon has managed to do far worse damage to her reputation through her insane, childlike reactions to the news.

Teresa Giudice: Table Flipping
And now for the classic. Teresa's face is priceless as she famously flips the table. Bravo. Bravo.

First, Teresa tried to get out of her sentence, even though she personally signed a plea deal which guaranteed she would serve time.

Once she finally came to terms with the fact that she'd be getting getting locked up, Teresa campaigned to for a cell in the prison that inspired Orange is the New Black, because apparently she thinks the Bureau of Prisons is a lot like Travelocity.

After that, Teresa's team began to get fed up and started distancing themselves from her increasingly erratic behavior.

Teresa's crisis manager fired her, supposedly because Giudice routinely went behind her back and undermined her work. Now, however, it looks like Wendy Feldman may have a much better reason for canning Teresa than simple professional disagreements:

Even though Teresa Giudice is still fighting her prison sentence, it seems she's gradually coming to terms with the fact that she'll soon be locked up.

Teresa was sentenced to 15 months, as a result of a plea deal, which means she can't contest her conviction (though she's certainly been trying).  

She can, however, continue to act like a delusional diva and pay an army of lawyers to make the experience as comfortable and painless as possible.

Teresa Giudice on The Real Housewives

First, Teresa tried to land a spot in the prison that inspired Orange is the New Black (seriously), now she's asked her legal team to fight for her right to fake hair: 

"Teresa has had her attorney inquire about keeping the hair extensions," a source tells Radar Online. "She will need to take out her extensions before beginning her prison sentence."

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

Teresa Giudice and Family

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."

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:

Even though Teresa Giudice is still trying to get out of her sentence, the rest of the world knows there's no getting around it:

Teresa is going to prison. But on the bright side, the PR manager she's hired to help her navigate the crisis is encouraging her to make productive use of her 15 months behind bars.

Teresa Giudice Going to Court

"She will make money off of a tell-all book because people will want to know her prison secrets," says Wendy Feldman who is herself an ex-con. "I have shared my prison secrets and tricks with Teresa from day one."

Feldman has mapped out a strategy for Teresa that includes conducting interviews while she's still locked up (if prison officials allow it) and launching a nationwide PR as soon as possible after being released.

Teresa and Joe Giudice may have supported each other throughout the ordeal of being found guilty on fraud charges, but now that the trial is over, sources say the couple is spending virtually all of their time apart.

Teresa Giudice and Joe Giudice Perp Walk

Teresa's 15-month prison sentence doesn't begin until January, but she's certainly not taking advantage of her last opportunity to bond with her husband before they serve back-to-back stretched behind bars:

"Joe has been spending time with his siblings and friends since being sentenced," a source tells Radar Online. "The last place he wants to be is with Teresa in that house of horrors."

"He felt intense pressure over the years to provide Teresa with an over the top lifestyle and that house is just a horrible reminder of that."

Can someone explain to Teresa Giudice how a plea deal works? Because we still don't think she understands.

As you may have heard, Teresa was sentenced to 15 months in jail recently after pleading guilty to fraud back in March.

Giudice says she didn't understand the plea deal and thought it guaranteed that she wouldn't have to serve jail time.

Well, it didn't and under the terms of her deal, she's not allowed to appeal her sentence. 

Teresa Giudice: Telling It Like It Is

Yes, short of going on the run there's literally nothing Teresa can do avoid going to prison. But that won't stop her from trying her fool heart out!

"Teresa has been meeting with numerous lawyers since being sentenced to 15 months," a source tells Radar Online.

Bravo aired part two of its sit-down with Teresa Giudice and Joe Giudice last night, as the law-breaking reality star appeared again opposite Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live.

Following Monday evening's televised interview, during which Teresa claimed she didn't understand the terms of her plea bargain, this awful couple blamed pretty much everyone except themselves for their legal woes.

“I wasn't aware that we needed to put all that information down,” Teresa said of why she failed to list various expensive assets on various financial forms.

"I wish our accountant had come to our house and then filled out the paperwork.”

Kissing Giudices

The Giudices also claimed they only have $25,000 worth of home furnishings inside a $3 million home. How can that be?

"Four years later, if it was appraised at $50,000 or $60,000, it's half right?" Joe said, we guess trying to be funny.

Teresa added that she told her attorney to list her engagement and wedding band on the forms, along with Joe’s Rolex and wedding ring, but he failed to do so.
