Teresa and Rino Aprea held a food tasting party to try out dishes for their new restaurant on Sunday's The Real Housewives of New Jersey, but instead everyone wanted to diss Teresa Giudice.

"I didn't start the rumor or spread the rumor," Giudice said in regard to the season-long allegation that Rino slept with his mother-in-law, which she had shared with Dina Manzo. "I don't get why Teresa [Aprea] would be mad."

Teresa Giudice Didn't Understand Anything About Finances, Says Former Attorney

Originally posted 10/08/2014 07:45PM

While Teresa Giudice may have pleaded guilty to bank and wire fraud charges in connection to a long-running financial conspiracy with husband Joe Giudice, her former attorney Jim Kridel – who represented the couple back in 2010 in their original bankruptcy case – says it's possible she may have committed the crimes unknowingly.

"I did not believe that Teresa was all that knowledgeable about any of the finances of her family until ultimately she became the breadwinner," Kridel tells PEOPLE.

"Everyone seems to blame her that she knew or should have known. I don't find that to be true in real life, though," he says. "People come in and sign tax returns quite often, and the spouse who is not in charge of the finances has no information. They just do what the accountant tells them."

Judge on Teresa Giudice's 15-Month Prison Sentence: 'I Need to Send a Message'

Teresa Giudice Sentenced to 15 Months in Prison on Fraud Charges

Originally posted 10/02/2014 01:25PM

Teresa Giudice will serve 15 months in prison for fraud, Judge Esther Salas announced Thursday. Her husband, Joe Giudice, will serve 41 months.

"For a moment I thought about probation … but I think a period of confinement is absolutely necessary in this case," the judge told Teresa. "I don't honestly believe that you understand or respect the law. I need to send a message. In the eyes of the law, it doesn't matter who you are. There are consequences to pay."

Teresa, 42, also received two years probation and will surrender for her sentence Jan. 5 so she can spend the holidays with her family. The couple have four daughters, Audriana, 5, Milania, 8, Gabriella, 9, and Gia, 13.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey stars' legal troubles came to a head in July 2013, when they were charged in a 39-count indictment that included conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, bank fraud, making false statements on loan applications and bankruptcy fraud.

After originally pleading not guilty to all charges, they then changed their plea to guilty in March.
