The Real Housewives turned Real Convicts, Teresa and Joe Guidice, have slammed HLN host Nancy Grace who has been chronicling their downfall on her hit HLN show.

The Guidices outspoken crisis consultant and spokesperson took to Twitter on Thursday and accused the former prosecutor turned television commentator of trying to compare The Real Housewives Of New Jersey stars to Casey Anthony, the Florida mother who was accused of killing her daughter, Caylee.

Grace became a vocal critic of Anthony and was accused of a three-year “media assassination” campaign after her acquittal. She gave Casey the sinister “Tot Mom” handle.

As Radar previously reported, the pair pleaded guilty to an array of fraud charges earlier this week. Teresa now faces 27 months in prison, while husband Joe could get 46 months and is likely be deported back to Italy.

Originally indicted on 39 counts last July, the ante was upped on Nov. 18 to 41 counts with new charges stemming from a $361,250 mortgage loan that Teresa obtained in 2005 in which Joe falsely states that Teresa was employed as a realtor with a monthly salary of $15,000.

Teresa was in fact unemployed at the time.
