How is The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice holding up after she and her husband Joe filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy?

"Staying positive is the only thing I could do," the Bravo star, 38, told Monday at the 4th annual Ladies Night Out to benefit Project Ladybug in Paterson, NJ. "I have moral support; I have my daughters and my husband. As long as we're in good health, that's all we can do. I think this kind of situation is all over the world."

Giudice -- who said she addresses the issue on her show later this season -- almost stayed home Monday in light of the news.

"I was like, 'Should I go?'" she told Us. "I think that by me being here, hopefully everybody will see that I'm just trying to do the best I can."

Above all, "I want to teach my daughters [Gia, 9, Gabriella, 5, Milania, 4, and Adriana, 8 months] morals," she went on. "That's the No. 1 thing. I don't have skeletons on my closet, thank you very much."
