Teresa Giudice Indictment Prompts Concern Among Housewives

by at . Comments

With word of the Teresa Giudice fraud case spreading around the nation, many cast members involved with the Real Housewives franchise are concerned about this mother of four.

"She may need some help raising those children," Lea Black (Miami) tells People. "The consequences may be bigger than anyone would think."

During the 39-charge indictment and subsequent court hearing last week, it came out that Joe Giudice is not an American citizen and could face deportation if found guilty over certain crimes.

"I feel really bad because I really like Teresa," Jill Zarin (New York) also tells the magazine. "She is a sweet girl and a good mother. I only want the best for her and her family."

Late last week, Bethenny Frankel took the opposite approach.

She said that Teresa did something dumb and did it on television and she therefore has no sympathy for the reality star.

But Black can't help but have a sensitive spot for what's taking place.

"It's a bad situation for them to be in," she says. "You don't kick someone when they're down. They've got four kids, they're in a lot of trouble and they're trying to survive."
