"The Real Housewives of New Jersey" Season 6 premiere is just days away and Access Hollywood spoke to star Teresa Giudice, who will find out in just months about the possibility of serving jail time for multiple fraud charges.
Access asked the Bravo star how she and husband Giuseppe “Joe” Giudice (who is also facing possible jail time) are doing after their headline-making year of legal woes plus a return to the airwaves.
"It has been a tough year for us, a very tough year," she said. "I have gotten very educated on the whole legal system and what I am basically doing is just focusing on my family."
In March, the couple pled guilty to multiple fraud charges, including conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud and three types of bankruptcy fraud.
The 42-year-old (possibly best known as reality TV's notorious table flipper) explained that they are focusing on their children.
"It's all about family, my four daughters," she said.
Access asked if she was nervous about her sentencing, scheduled for September, where she and Joe will learn if they will serve time behind bars.
"I just am focusing on the positive, focusing on my family, waking up every morning. I have four healthy beautiful daughters, that is what makes me happy. That's what puts a smile on my face every day," she explained.
And what about the toll her legal woes have taken on her marriage?
"My husband, he is amazing," she added. "We had an amazing marriage before and now it's even more amazing."
"The Real Housewives of New Jersey" Season 6 debuts Sunday at 8/7c on Bravo.
