Teresa Giudice knows exactly what fellow reality TV stars Todd and Julie Chrisley are going through as they await the start of their prison sentences.
If you’re not aware, the Chrisley Knows Best couple were convicted of tax evasion and bank fraud in June. Todd was sentenced to 12 years in prison, while Julie received seven years behind bars.
The reality TV couple is reportedly “living every day like it’s [their] last” while spending as much time with their family as well as going to therapy and church.
As Todd and Julie prepare for their new reality, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star encourages the couple to “stand strong.”
Teresa tells TMZ that “manifesting” is what got her through her 11-month prison sentence in 2015.
The 50-year-old reality TV star encourages Todd and Julie to “stand strong for their family and manifest while being in prison what they want when they come out … and just to be strong for their children.”
She added: “It’s going to be very hard, but they have to make the best of it … but they have to stay connected to their children and make it work.”
Teresa also noted that having her kids visit her “every week” helped keep her family connected while she was in prison.
“The thing is my children were young … but based on their schedule, at least, go once a month,” she explained.
She also encouraged Todd and Julie to find hobbies like exercise, yoga, manifesting, or writing a book while in prison, noting that it would make the time go by faster.
RHONJ will return for season 13 in early 2023.
