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

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."

Teresa Giudice on Indictment: 'I Can't Fall Apart. I Have My Daughters'

Teresa Giudice and her husband, Joe, face the possibility of 50 years behind bars for multiple counts of fraud following an indictment last month. Yet the Real Housewives of New Jersey star says she has exactly four reasons to stay strong while facing the charges: her daughters.

"I can't fall apart," she tells Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen in an interview to air Sunday, while clutching her husband's hand. "I have my daughters. They mean the world to me."

Teresa, 41, and Joe, 43, pleaded not guilty in federal court in Newark, N.J., to conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, bank fraud and bankruptcy fraud, all part of a 39-count indictment that contends the couple initially exaggerated their income in a mortgage filing, then later hid income in a bankruptcy filing.
