Real Housewives of New Jersey” co-star Teresa Giudice isn’t letting her recent legal troubles stand in the way of her parenting.

Entertainment Tonight” caught up with Giudice during her book signing in Wayne, New Jersey, where she explained that she will not let the ongoing court case against her family get in the way of her career.

Teresa and her husband, Joe, have pleaded guilty after being charged with allegedly conspiring to defraud lenders, illegally obtaining mortgages and hiding assets and income during their bankruptcy case.

Still, the reality star told “ET,” “I’m not going to stop working,” citing her children as one reason for her unbreakable work ethic.

“It’s a good example to show to my daughters—that Mommy’s a business woman and hopefully they’ll follow in my footsteps,” Giudice said.

Currently, she is promoting her book “Fabulicious!: On the Grill: Teresa’s Smoking Hot Backyard Recipes,” which was released back in May, and is planning to open a restaurant with her husband in the near future.

You can catch Giudice on season five of “RHONJ,” Sunday nights at 8pm.
