Teresa Giudice: My RHONJ Costars Have Been Supportive (to My Face!) Amidst Legal Drama
After pleading guilty to multiple fraud charges back in March, Teresa Giudice may or may not be going to prison. First, she'll have to watch as her and husband Joe's legal drama unfolds onscreen during season six of Real Housewives of New Jersey—and see what her new and old costars have to say about it behind her back.
"Everyone's been really supportive—to my face!" Giuidice, 41, joked to Us Weekly during a recent visit to our NYC headquarters, noting that she hasn't yet watched the new season. "Everyone's been tremendously supportive," she added, adding that costars Dina Manzo and Amber Marchese, who came along for the interview, were "great." (The Giudices will be sentenced in September on multiple counts of bankruptcy fraud, conspiracy to commit mail fraud and wire fraud, and failing to pay taxes.)

Season six of RHONJ otherwise has plenty of fun, dishy distractions for Giudice, including the long-awaited return of Dina Manzo (newly divorced and dating!) and the debut of Marchese (plus twin sisters Nicole Napolitano and Teresa Aprea). It's newcomer Marchese who gets involved in an "awful" hair-pulling incident, she admits to Us. "It was one of htose ugly moments," says Marchese, who points out that her hair is "real" and "not a weave."
"At this point in our lives," says former table-flipper Giuidice, "Everyone should keep their hands to themselves!"

Real Housewives of New Jersey premieres Sunday, July 13, at 8 p.m. on Bravo.
