Ever since Teresa Giudice checked into prison on January 5, we've been dying to know how she's faring behind bars.

Now we have a very close insider speaking out on Teresa's life in the big house — her sister-in-law, Melissa Gorga.
The reality star stopped by Watch What Happens Live on Sunday night to dish on not only Tre, but how her loved ones are coping with the difficult shift in family dynamics. Gorga revealed:
"Teresa's doing well and really good."
As for Joe Giudice, the momma explained:
"It's heavy on his heart. It's heartwarming to see him. He's manning up and doing what he has to do. I see him drive the girls [to school] every morning."
Wow, we're glad to hear Juicy Joe is stepping up during this family crisis. Joe's girls really need him now more than ever!
Obviously, talking about Teresa was tough for Mrs.Gorga and she even teared up when describing how it's hard not to see her sister-in-law on a daily basis.
The good news, however, is that the family is in constant communication with Tre, and the girls even visited the Gorga household just last week.
Well, we're relieved that all is well with Teresa and that the family is sticking together through this difficult time.
