Even though Teresa Giudice is headed to prison soon, that doesn't mean the troubled Housewife has any plans to let up in her relentless hustling.

Along with her husband Joe, Teresa sat down for an interview with Bravo recently to speak publicly about her crimes and punishment for the first time since her sentencing.

The interview will air in its entirety tonight, but regardless of whether or not it turns out to be the ratings bonanza that Bravo is banking on, it's already proven to be a hugely lucrative 30 minutes for the Giudices.

The couple was reportedly paid $325,000 for offering Bravo honcho Andy Cohen first crack at an interview.

The network initially offered $275,000 for Teresa alone, but threw in an extra 50 grand in order for Joe to join her.

Last week, Teresa Giudice was sentenced to 15 months in prison, but she won't have to turn herself in to authorities until January 5. 

Naturally, Teresa has a lot to get done between now and then - things like getting her finances in order, making sure her kids are cared for while she's gone, and of course, setting fire to the few remaining bridges in her life that haven't already been burned.

Teresa Giudice Stands Tall

Yes, despite the fact that Bravo is pretty much the only business at which Teresa has any hope of getting a job after her release, the veteran Housewife seems intent on royally pissing off the network that made her famous. 

Over the weekend, the ladies of The Real Housewives of New Jersey gathered to tape their annual reunion show, and naturally, Teresa was the main attraction. She was also more than three hours late.

Yesterday, Teresa Giudice was sentenced to 15 months in prison as a result of her fraud conviction back in March.

Her husband, Joe Giudice, was sentenced to 41 months, but won't begin doing his time until after Teresa is released, so that one parent will be free to care for the couple's four daughters at all times.

Speaking of the Giudice kids, they're in for a shock when Teresa turns herself over to the authorities on January 5, as the three youngest girls reportedly haven't been told that their parents are headed for prison.

"Teresa and Joe decided they were only going to tell [13-year-old] Gia that they had both been sentenced to prison," a source close to the family tells Radar Online.

Teresa and Joe Giudice finally learned their fate yesterday in court, and The Real Housewives of New Jersey firebrand is not taking the outcome well.

After pleading guilty to bankruptcy fraud, prison sentences loomed, but the couple held out hope they might be let off with probation or house arrest.

No dice. Teresa Giudice was sentenced to 15 months in prison, while her husband Joe Giudice earned a 41-month sentence in the state penitentiary.

In a statement, Teresa said, "My daughters are my life."

"I'm more sorry than anyone will ever know. I will make this right no matter what ... I'm really scared ... I need to learn to do things for myself."

She concluded, "It's time for me to wake up."

Judge Esther Salas, who laid the smack down on both, apparently wasn't buying her pleas for mercy or that she has a clue what she did was wrong.

Yesterday, the Giudices had you might call a rough day in court.

Though each of them reportedly believed they'd avoid prison time with their last-minute pleas for mercy, Judge Esther Salas decided that the Giudices both need to do some pretty serious time.

Joe Giudice was sentenced to 41 months as a result of the several counts of fraud to which he pled guilty back in March.

Even though by many accounts she was simply along for the ride, Teresa Giudice was sentenced to 15 months behind bars.

If you watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online, you know that the Giudices claim to value family above all else.

So you might guess that their current struggles have made them closer than ever and Teresa and Joe are standing by each other in this time of strife, right? Oh, how wrong you would be.

This morning, Joe Giudice was sentenced to 41 months in prison, stemming from his conviction on several counts of fraud, to which he pleaded guilty back in March.

His wife - Teresa Giudice - was forced to wait several hours to find out her own fate, and just minutes ago, The Real Housewives of New Jersey star got what was coming to her:

Teresa was sentenced to 15 months behind bars!

Prior to their sentencing, the Giudices were reprimanded by Judge Esther Salas for being dishonest in financial documents requested by the court.

Salas also stated that she was forced to delay the Giudices' sentencing as they were several months late in filing the documents pertaining to the case.

It's unclear as to whether or not the late submission and missing information factored into the Salas' decision to throw the book at the Giudices, but it couldn't have helped.

The Giudices sentencing has been delayed several times since they both pled guilty to fraud back in March.

But today the troubled couple finally had its day in court today, and as expected, both Joe and Teresa pulled out all the stops in hopes of avoiding prison.

Joe Giudice was sentenced to 41 months behind bars, as a last-minute plea to the judge fell on deaf ears.

Joe and his lawyer went with an age-old excuse for his bad behavior, claiming that Giudice suffers from a severe drinking problem.

"Joe does have a serious problem with alcohol," attorney Miles Feinstein told the court. "And being on the show didn't help. It's there. I've noticed it. When he comes into my office he smells like alcohol."

The former pizza parlor owner and husband of Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice arrived (looking “serious and sad,” an observer tells E! News) around 9 a.m. today in federal court, holding hands on his way inside with his wife.

The couple - who pleaded guilty in March to various counts of financial fraud - appeared before U.S. District Court Judge Esther Salas at 10 a.m. ET.

She at first went over the “glaring omissions” - from cars to home furnishings to insurance policies - on the Giudice's financial disclosure forms, as the prosecutor argued these represented a "pattern of deception, dishonesty and concealment."

At some point, it really will happen: Teresa Giudice will be sentenced for committing various forms of financial fraud.

Giudice and husband Joe pleaded guilty to a number of charges a few months ago, a development chronicled this past Sunday night on The Real Housewives of New Jersey.

Their sentencing was originally pushed back until September 23, due to the death of Joe's mother, and now Teresa's lawyers are angling to get it pushed back again, this time until October 2.

On Sunday night's episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Joe and Teresa Giudice pled guilty to fraud charges that could result in them getting locked up for 46 months and 27 months, respectively.

The episode was filmed over six months ago, but the Giudices have yet to face the music, as their lawyers have now successfully petitioned the court to delay their sentencing hearing for a second time.

Teresa and Joe's sentencing was pushed back to September 23 following the death of Joe Giudice's father.

Now, lawyers for the couple have requested that the hearing be delayed again - this time until October 2 - as they're still in the process of gathering information for the judge.
