Jacqueline Laurita and Teresa Giudice have had their ups and downs on Real Housewives of New Jersey over the years, but with Teresa and her husband facing some serious real-life issues, Jacqueline says she has Teresa's back.

Teresa and husband Joe have been hit with a slew of fraud charges and face 50 years in prison, with their court date fast approaching on February 24, 2014. Now, Jacqueline is weighing in on their situation.

"Of course I'm worried," Jacqueline tells Us Weekly about Teresa's future. "I'm always there for her if she wants me  I'm there. I'm not going to push myself on anybody. If she wants me, I'm there for her always."

Jacqueline says that she hasn't hung out with Teresa since the end of Season 5, but that they do stay in contact.

"I haven't seen her since we stopped filming, but we've kept in touch here and there by phone," Jac says. "It's just that our lives have changed so much since we were friends before  I'm so busy doing so many things, and she's so busy doing so many things  that we just don't ever really see each other."

One of the more positive storylines from Season 5 was getting to see Jacqueline and Teresa's reconciliation. Indeed, Teresa had nice things to say about Jac during the recent reunion, and Bravo recently released an adorable video showing their friendship.

We're wishing Teresa and Joe all the best, and it's great that their co-stars are in their corner.
