RHONJ Reunion: Caroline Manzo Has One Last Fight With Teresa Giudice

Originally posted 10/14/2013 09:30AM

There was less screaming than usual but a lot more tears as part two of The Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion focused on Teresa Giudice's legal troubles.

Teresa and her husband, Joe, are facing the possibility of 50 years behind bars for multiple counts of fraud, and it's clearly weighing heavily on the mother of four. "Of course this bothers me. I'm human. There's a lot of nights I cry myself to sleep," the 41-year-old admitted. "I'm worried for my family. If I fall apart, the rest of my family's gonna fall apart … I don't want them to feel any pain … I'm just like every other mom."

"I don't believe in karma. I’m Catholic. I don't know why this came to us," she continued. "The best thing you can do is learn from it … It's in God's hands."
