Teresa Giudice is headed for prison on Jan. 5 but that hasn't stopped her from making headlines in the weeks leading up to her incarceration.
In August 2014, Teresa and Joe Giudice were sentenced to prison for fraud and tax evasion charges. The judge sentenced Teresa to 15 months and Joe to 41 months. Teresa played the victim saying she didn't understand the plea deal she signed would land her in prison.
Right after their sentencing, the Giudices sat down for an exclusive interview with Andy Cohen for Watch What Happens Live. Teresa blamed her former accountant for discrepancies in court documents instead of taking personal responsibility.
Teresa and Joe suffered a marriage meltdown after sentencing. As RadarOnline.com reported, the couple were bickering about ongoing money troubles and how to care for their four daughters as Joe, who has admitted he drinks too often, considered a divorce.
During a pre-prison family outing to see her daughter Gia perform, Teresa carried a $2K Valentino bag that an insider said RHONJ producers had given her as a prop for the show and she was instructed to return.
Teresa revealed her resolutions for 2015 are to cut out bad carbs and keep the negative out. That might be difficult in prison!
