It’s been a tough few years for Teresa Giudice, what with her 11-month stay in prison for bank and mail fraud, the death of her mother, and the burden of raising her four daughters — Gia, 16, Gabriella, 12, Milania 11, and Audriana, 8 — alone while her husband, Joe Giudice, is in jail serving out his own 41-month sentence for fraud.
