On Tuesday, Leakes was announced as was announced as part of the season 18 cast of Dancing With The Stars. Hours later, it was reported that Giudice and her husband Joe had plead guilty to fraud charges in court.

The Giudice's plea will result in jail time, most likely, for them both. For Teresa, it has been said that she will likely receive around two years, while Joe will get about double that.

In response to Giudice's news, Leakes has spoken out in support of her fellow Real Housewives star.

“Honestly I have to say I wish [Teresa and Joe] all the best because I don’t wish harm on anybody,” Leakes told The Insider's Kevin Frasier on March 4. “I don’t want to see her have to go to jail, she is a mom, she has kids, I have kids, and her kids need her. So, I just wish her all the best.”

Following her plea, Giudice told press she was "heartbroken" over what the plea would mean for her daughter. But at the end of the day, coming clean is always the best route.

Now that the Giudice's have agreed to a plea deal, there is just one more thing left before they head off to prison, and that will be their July sentencing where they find out for sure what is ahead of them.
