The show - er, the life - must go on! Even though Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice and her husband Joe Giudice were both charged with tax fraud and conspiracy earlier this week, the reality star and author hasn't cut back her social calendar.
Teresa continued with a scheduled appearance at the Beauty Buster Awards in NYC last night. The event is for media and beauty industry insiders, and Teresa was there to promote her new Milania haircare product line, which was named after her third and most rambunctious daughter.

"She was very talkative and chatting with everyone, just like nothing was up," an eyewitness told In Touch about Teresa. "She spoke to every guest that spoke to her and she stayed for two hours."
Although the Skinny Italian author could have opted to skip the festivities, the eyewitness says that the event "seemed like it was a welcome distraction."
Teresa hasn't just decided to honor her commitment to the Beauty Buster Awards. A source told In Touch that the embattled reality star "has no plans to stop filming" Real Housewives. Because her legal issues are ongoing, she won't be able to talk about them on the show - and neither will any of her co-stars, including her estranged sister in law Melissa Gorga.

"She's putting on a face because she doesn't want anyone, especially Melissa, to see her sweat," explained the source.
