With Teresa Giudice and her husband facing up to nearly 50 years in prison, the couple has some tough decisions to make.
When it comes to their four children, however, Radar Online reports that one decision came easy for the reality star: even if she goes to jail, her children will not go to live with her sister-in-law, Melissa Gorga.
“Teresa would rather die than let the kids go to Melissa,” the source said. “Teresa has been telling people that she isn’t going to go to jail because she has four kids, and that no judge would take a mother away from her children.”
Last week, Teresa made a public appearance at an event in New York, only days after her court appearance.
According to Radar, the “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star is confident that her hubby, Joe Giudice, will “take the fall” in the case of 39 counts of fraud. If convicted, Joe could be deported as he is an Italian citizen.
