After appearing in court to plead not guilty for 39 counts of federal fraud on August 14, Teresa Giudice carried on with life as usual, hosting a book signing for her new cooking collection, Fabulicious!: On the Grill: Teresa's Smoking Hot Backyard Recipes. The Real Housewives of New Jersey star spoke with ET News, where she made it clear that she plans on working no matter what is going on around her.

First, Teresa sent a thank you message to all of her fans for being so supportive during this difficult time.

When the ET reporter asked her if she planned to keep at her busy lifestyle, Teresa responded, "I'm not going to stop working."

Next month work and legal drama will mix when The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6 starts filming. Wetpaint Entertainment has learned exclusively that the show will cover Teresa’s case.

Tre went on to explain, "It's a good example to show to my daughters — that Mommy's a businesswoman and hopefully they'll follow in my footsteps."

Teresa also claimed it was a coincidence that her book signing was scheduled on the same day as her court arraignment, pointing out that the event was planned before the charges came out.

Still, she saw no reason to cancel, proving that she really does intend to keep her focus on her work.
