“Real Housewives of New Jersey” star Teresa Giudice told Bravo host Andy Cohen that she was “shocked” by her prison sentence, which was handed down last week, reports TheWrap.com.
The interview took place a day after she and her husband received prison sentences for bank fraud, and was the first of a two-part airing of Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live” focusing on the sentencing.
“I mean, of course I was shocked,” Teresa Giudice said of her sentence. “It was very unexpected. I mean, I don’t even know what to say. I really don’t know what to say.”
Her husband, Joe, who was also interviewed, added, “I actually felt like I got hit in the back of the neck with a bat,” he said. “I didn’t think I was gonna get that much,” he said of his 41-month sentence. “I don’t know. It is what it is.”
Teresa Giudice will serve her 15-month sentence first, while Joe will take care of their four daughters. After she’s released from prison, Joe will serve his term.
She added that she isn’t worried about prison. “I’m going to do fine,” she said. “I’ll just slick my hair back and go about my day. I just think about my daughters. That’s all I think about.”
