Teresa's First Post-Prison TV Interview: 'I Didn't Know I Was Committing A Crime'

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice sat down for her first TV interview since prison, revealing the family's current financial situation in an exclusive interview with ABC News' Amy Robach.

"We're not in foreclosure any longer, thank you, God," Giudice shared happily, on Tuesday's edition of Good Morning America. "And our restitution's paid off. We're — thank God — in good shape."

The mother-of-four also confirmed Radar's report that she was allowed to keep the family's New Jersey home, despite being stripped of other assets during the messy court case last year.

Though the reality star, 43, pleaded guilty to fraud charges, when asked whether she believed she had been "breaking the law" alongside husband Joe, also 43, Giudice replied, "No."

"This is what happened in my eyes. I signed some papers. There was no intent to commit a crime. I didn't know I was committing a crime," she confessed. "I got indicted. The government saw it differently. I got sentenced. I served time. I did what I had to do and now I'm moving past it."
