When Teresa Giudice waited to hear her fate at her Oct. 2 sentencing, she told the federal judge “I don’t care about the TV show or materialistic things,”—yet she hasn’t stopped filming since learning she is to spend 15 months behind bars!
Yesterday, Oct. 5, the reality star filmed the reunion special for Real Housewives of New Jersey—which she was allegedly four hours late for.

And now clips have been revealed from the upcoming episode of Watch What Happens Live she and husband Joe filmed on Friday, Oct. 3.

“She’s like, ‘It’s gonna be okay,’ and she was like being strong for me, I could tell,” the RHONJ star confessed.
“And she was like, ‘Mommy, don’t worry I’ll be there. I’ll help daddy with the girls. That’ll make me a better mom. That’ll prepare me for when I’m a mom.’ And I was just like, ‘Oh my god,’ it broke my heart when she said that.”
Teresa went on to explain that she “does everything” with her daughters—Gia, Gabriella, 9, Milania, 8, and Audriana, 5. So it will be hard for them and Joe when she’s behind bars.
Like her mom said, Gia hopes the experience assisting her dad with her younger sisters will help her when she has kids of her own. And that’s not the only way her parents’ very public legal drama has impacted the tween.
In an earlier episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey, Joe asked his daughter what she wants to be when she grows up.
“A criminal lawyer,” she told her dad enthusiastically, without skipping a beat.
