It's been a tough week for Teresa Giudice of Real Housewives of New Jersey. The reality star and her husband have pleaded guilty after being charged with 41 counts of financial fraud, and now Teresa is facing up to two years in jail, while her husband could be spending double the time in prison — and could possibly be deported back to Italy. Many other Bravolebrities have reached out to Teresa to show their support, including NeNe Leakes.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star spoke with The Insider this week, where she expressed her admiration for Teresa and her hope that the Jersey mama doesn't end up having to go to jail at all.

“Honestly, I have to say I wish [Teresa and Joe] all the best because I don’t wish harm on anybody," NeNe said, adding, “I don’t want to see her have to go to jail, she is a mom, she has kids, I have kids, and her kids need her. So, I just wish her all the best.”

NeNe and Teresa have been friends for quite some time now, and NeNe even invited Teresa to her June wedding this past summer. Although Teresa was unable to attend the event, she did send a very expensive gift: Hermes china dishes — one of the more costly items on NeNe's registry.

Teresa is hoping to carry out her sentence via house arrest so that she's not separated from her four young daughters. Like NeNe, we also wish her and her family the best during this difficult time.
