Yesterday, Teresa Giudice was sentenced to 15 months in prison.

Her husband, Joe Giudice, got 41 months, so Teresa got off relatively easy, but it’s still no slap on the wrist.

The Giudices pled guilty to fraud back in March, and they were basically the only ones who didn’t realize that prison was an inevitability.

Unfortunately, now three of their four daughters are still in the dark, because according to sources close to the family, Teresa won’t tell her kids she’s going to 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.

“Telling the other three girls would have just been too hard because of their ages. They aren’t quite old enough to understand all of it. They don’t want to scare the girls.”

Yes, they haven’t told the others, ranging in age from 5 to 9, because well, that would be hard.

Apparently, when Teresa is the first to ship off January 5, they’ll use the old “long vacation” excuse.
