Teresa Giudice: I'm Staying Strong for my Girls

She's facing a possible 50 year prison sentence for multiple counts of fraud with her hubby Joe, and now Teresa Giudice reveals she only wants to stay strong during this hard time for her daughters.

During an interview with "Watch What Happens Live" host Andy Cohen, the "Real Housewives of New Jersey" star states that her family, (Gia, Milania, Gabriella and Audriana Giudice) is the most important thing to her right now.

"I can't fall apart," Miss Giudice explained while holding her husband's hand. "I have my daughters. They mean the world to me."

"Maybe there's something my daughters can learn from this, 'My mom was really strong through all of this. She was there for us.' I hope they always have that with them," she added.

The couple recently plead not guilty in a New Jersey Federal Court for conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, bank fraud, and bankruptcy fraud.

The government believes the Giudices falsely inflated their income when filing a mortgage loan in 2001. Teresa is also accused of being dishonest while claiming she worked as an executive assistant and even submitted fake pay stubs and W-2 forms.

While the couple is currently awaiting their next hearing, Miss Giudice is trying to move forward. "You go through things in life. I don't know why. I'm asking, 'Why is this happening to me?'"
