When it comes to Kim DePaola's bond with Teresa Giudice, "Friend of the Housewives" was always more than just a catchy Bravo title. Kim has been a fierce advocate for her bestie, and she’s been sticking up for Teresa and her husband Joe ever since the Jersey couple were slapped with 39 counts of fraud last summer. It should come as no surprise that Kim is still all support now that Teresa and Joe have pleaded guilty to some of those charges

Wetpaint Entertainment spoke to Kim about her reaction to the news, and the New Jersey businesswoman said she gives Teresa credit for the strength she showed today.

"Teresa has always been a very good friend to me," Kim said. "What I see is she's a very good person, very good mother, wife, and daughter. I support her with anything she does, and I give her a lot of credit. It takes a lot of strength to step up to the plate, to say if you are wrong or right."

Kim also has faith that Joe and Teresa's bond will help them through this struggle. "I think she and Joe are going to weather this storm. They have a strong bond. A very strong bond. They're going to get through this."

We know this must be an incredibly difficult time for Teresa and Joe, and the amount of strength Teresa has shown is very impressive. We continue to wish the Giudices the best in this difficult period.
