Teresa Giudice is making sure fans know she's not doing anything shady!

The Real Housewives of New Jersey, who, along with hubby Joe, was charged with multiple counts of fraud earlier this year, is now doing the right thing with all the extra dollars she’s pulling in from appearances and donating them to charity.

Teresa, was accused of asking fans to fork over cash cash without offering receipts at the Porsche Spring Soiree earlier this month, leading many to believe she was trying to avoid a paper trail. But don't be so fast to judge. Teresa is giving all of those shady-seeming stacks to a good cause — and making sure everybody knows about it.

“As I so often do, I'm donating all proceeds from selling my book at a recent event to the charity dear to my heart Nephcure Foundation.XO,” tweeted Teresa on March 26.

Despite the good deed, giving back a few hundred bucks is far from enough to keep Teresa out of hot water when she returns to court for sentencing. Depending on how big an RHONJ fan the judge is (kidding!), Teresa could serve up to 27 months in prison.

Do you think Teresa is donating the money to charity out of the kindness of her heart, or because people started getting suspicious?
