Kim DePaola: Teresa Giudice was too busy having babies and fun to know of fraud

One person who doesn't believe that Teresa Giudice should go to prison for fraud is her "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" co-star Kim DePaola. As shown in an In Touch magazine article posted on Wednesday, March 12, Kim believes that Teresa spent her time being a mom and having fun rather than figuring out how to deceive the government and others.

Teresa Giudice (L) and Joe Giudice leave court after facing charges of defrauding lenders, illegally obtaining mortgages and other loans as well as allegedly hiding assets and income during a bankruptcy case on March 4, 2014 in Newark, United States.

Kim implied that all of the couple's alleged crimes lies firmly on Joe Giudice's shoulders. While she didn't deny that Teresa signed her names on the papers, she believes that Teresa signed things without knowing what she was doing and the possible consequences.

"I’m not slamming Joe, but I truly still stand firm that Teresa was having babies and going for lunch and having fun [and didn’t know] what she was signing,” she told the magazine.

While Kim supports Teresa, another of her "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" co-stars isn't so supportive. Kim Granatell, who feuded with Teresa doing her time on the show, sent out a barrage of tweets making fun of the Giudice's situation after they entered their guilty pleas.

"Orange jumpsuit here we come!!! Make sure they sew "Miss Entitlement" on the back. Study the jail house rules. U will need it!!" she tweeted in early March.

"No more caviar and champagne...it now the "slop food line". Oh how yummy!!!!" she said in another tweet.

Do you believe, like Kim DePaola, that Teresa Giudice didn't know about what was going on or do you think she deserves everything she gets like Kim Granatell?
