Teresa Giudice pleaded guilty to multiple fraud charges in federal court on Tuesday and she may be facing years behind bars, but her southern Housewives friend NeNe Leakes is coming to her defense, saying that she doesn’t want her to see her friend go to jail.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star and her husband, Juicy Joe, pleaded guilty to tax fraud and evasion, and at her sentencing she could be facing up to two years in a federal prison.

“Honestly I have to say I wish Teresa and Joe all the best because I don’t wish harm on anybody.”

The newest contestant on Dancing With the Stars said she empathizes with the mother-of-four and hopes she can avoid getting locked up.

“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.”
