Teresa Giudice and her husband Joe have plead guilty to fraud charges and are awaiting sentencing, but despite their dire circumstances, the "Real Housewives of New Jersey" pair are staying positive and focusing on maintaining a normal life for their family.

According to a March 9 report by Radar Online, Teresa and Joe attended a cheer competition on Saturday to support their daughter, Milania, who was competing.

"Milania, 8, was competing in a cheer competition, and had her parents and her uncle, Joe Gorga, there for support," the site reported. "This is the second time in as many weeks that 'The Real Housewives of New Jersey' family has come out for little Milania but between then and now, Teresa and Joe went before a judge and pleaded guilty to multiple fraud charges."

Just a couple of days prior to the competition, Teresa plead guilty to four charges of fraud and now faces up to two years behind bars. Her husband faces up to five years behind bars -- and he may be deported upon release.

Since the start of the trial, Teresa has vowed to make her life, and the life of her girls, as stable as possible, but if she and Joe end up going to jail at the same time (they are requesting staggered sentences), things are bound to get stressful for everyone.
