Whoa! This would certainly have to be a first!
We never thought we'd see the day reality TV actually kept a person out of jail!
But Teresa Giudice might make history because of her gig on Real Housewives of New Jersey.
As we've already told you, Tre and her hubby, Juicy Joe Giudice, are facing jail time after entering guilty pleas for fraud charges. And while she could be sentenced to less than two years in jail, she has one last hope!
A source revealed the next step:
"Before Teresa is formally sentenced by the judge, she will meet with the United States Probation Department and a report will be prepared. The report will outline recommendations for sentencing for the judge to consider and one of those items will include if house arrest is suitable for Teresa."
Ahhhh! House arrest!! The get out of jail free card!
And what could make this house arrest possible?? Well, the source added:
"The fact that she has four children and is the breadwinner for the family will drastically help her when it comes to determining if house arrest is appropriate. You can count on Teresa to plead her case to the judge during her sentencing hearing… She really hopes to serve her prison sentence at home because the idea of going to prison absolutely terrifies her."
Looks like those four fabulicious, leopard-wearing little girls of hers and that cushy reality gig are paying off!!
Who knew that Skinny Italian cookbook that brought so much dramz might actually save Tre from more dramz!
