Last night on The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6 Episode 12, Teresa Giudice and her ongoing legal problems were only half the story.

With the real housewife in real trouble, getting sentenced to 15 months for fraud, it was hard to focus on much else, but the Bravo show tried.

Fortunately, they had a good side plot, as the rumor that Victoria Gotti told earlier in the season came full circle when Jim Marchese said it out loud:

Teresa Aprea's husband, Rino, had slept with her mom in the recent past.

"You don't talk about mothers!" said Melissa Gorga, as twins Nicole Napolitano and Aprea listened, stunned, to the story about their own. "No! No!"

"Don't you dare talk about my mother," said a crying Aprea. "I'm done."

Sounds like Rino did a lot more than talk to her, too. Just saying.

"That's why I was trying to shut this down all night long," said fellow cast member Dina Manzo on The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6 Episode 12.

Her mom is going to jail for over a year.

Her dad is going to jail for over three years.

But Gia Giudice is sticking by the side of Teresa Giudice and Joe Giudice.

A couple hours after her controversial parents were sentenced to prison for committing various kinds of financial fraud, the 13-year old took to Twitter on Friday and wrote the following:

"Family forever. Such an amazing support system it's unreal. The little things matter to me but the big things matter to you."

A judge decreed late last week that she had to set an example, ordering Teresa Giudice to jail for 15 months.

Earlier that same day, she sentenced Joe Giudice to jail for 41 months.

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 time has finally come for Joe and Teresa Giudice to face the music.

After being convicted of bankruptcy fraud back in March, the Giudices have reportedly been awaiting their sentencing with a mix of fear and optimism.

Giudices Go to Court

Their sentencing was delayed following the death of Joe Giudice's father, then a second time when Joe And Teresa's lawyers requested still more time from the judge.

But now that the end is near and the Giudice's face the final curtain, they're said to be coming to terms with the fact that they may both wind up behind bars for well over a year.

Perhaps even worse, Joe Giudice expects to be deported after his sentence and he's uncertain if his family will join him in his return to Italy.

It's looking more and more as though Teresa Giudice will be headed to prison after she's sentenced for several counts of fraud on October 2.

Even though the Jersey Housewife still thinks she won't get locked up, and has described the prospect of prison as "too terrifying to think about" she's still determined to enjoy her final days of freedom...Jersey style.

Teresa Giudice: Telling It Like It Is

No, she's not binge-watching The Sopranos in her best Ed Hardy cocktail dress. She's clubbin'. Hard.

Radar Online reports that Joe and Teresa Giudice hosted a raging "Stay Strong" party over the weekend in Parsippany (the Atlantic City of northern New Jersey).

Witnesses report that the Giudices appeared to be in "great moods," and didn't seem the least bit concerned about the possibility of being tossed in the slammer before the week is out.

If you watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online, you know that Teresa Giudice and Joe Giudice are awaiting sentencing on fraud charges.

Not trial, sentencing. There have been guilty pleas to felony charges, and Joe also pleaded to an additional count of failure to file income taxes.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member Lisa Vanderpump feels their pain for some reason, and says she couldn't help but reach out.

"I have called her because I can only imagine, it has to be a nightmare to be in the midst of that," she told E! News. "She's always been a lovely woman."

"I know that from first-hand experience."

She has? You do?
