From her Watch What Happens Live pow-wow to her various promotional appearances, Teresa Giudice hasn't withdrawn at all in the face of the 39 fraud charges against she and her husband Joe, and in her new Bravo blog, she acknowledges the seriousness of the situation
"I'm not in denial about it, I know it's serious and terrible, and I wouldn't wish this situation on anyone," the Real Housewives of New Jersey star said. "It can suck your soul dry faster than almost anything else.
"But I choose to stay positive."
The hair care entrepreneur said she's holding her head high to set an example for her four children.
"Especially being a mom, I can't fall apart," she said. "I have four little girls looking at me to see how to handle bad times. I want to set a good example for them because life involves bad times.You have to know how to cope and not to crumble."
Even after her tell-all interview with Andy Cohen she said there's still plenty she hasn't said.
"It is aggravating to not be able to speak freely about everything," the reality star groused. "When this is all over, we will! As Joe said, we pleaded not guilty for a reason.
"Thank you all so much for your support and for withholding judgment until the trial is over."
The Giudices head to court for February.
