With the original Real Housewives of New Jersey star and her husband facing possible prison sentences, many think Teresa Giudice will get a get out of jail free pass, sort of.
Teresa Giudice will learn next month if she and her husband Joe Giudice will serve time behind bars. However, someone claiming to have the inside scoop says the RHONJ star will likely skip jail and do house arrest instead.

The Giudice's appear to quietly working out their living situation in the event a judge remands them to jail next month in their bankruptcy fraud cases. Teresa and Joe put their sprawling Towaco, New Jersey compound up for sale recently with a price tag of $4 million to anyone with that kind of pocket-change at their disposal.
To many, it signals that Teresa Giudice is trying to raise cash as soon as possible because she fears she'll be away serving time for up to 27 months, the maximum possible sentence for pleading guilty to four counts of fraud.
However, an insider has a totally different take, and offered somewhat of a likely positive outcome for the popular reality television star. In other words, the source has information, or merely a hunch, that Teresa won't step foot inside a jail.
"She will probably get house arrest."
Meanwhile, Joe's attorney, Miles Feinstein, appears to concur with the unnamed source. Additionally, he offered up ideas on what he think about his client's chances, which is bleak in comparison to his wife.
"We're hoping Teresa does not go to jail. The great likelihood is that Joe will get some jail time...It's just a matter of how long."
In the general scheme of things, judges do tend to be partial to the female defendant facing time behind bars, especially when it involves children. Teresa has four kids, and this may be her lifeline to remaining free, but not so free, if you will.
An expert chimed in about Giudice's future as a housewife on the popular show and how it would work into the mix with house arrest, should a judge choose this form of punishment.
Vikki Ziegler thinks Teresa Giudice may have an option to continue working, if Bravo continues to employ her during after a sentence is handed down.
"Long hours shooting outside the home would not fly," Ziegler said.
Should Teresa be allowed to work while confined to her home?
