It's hard being a "Housewife." On a visit to HuffPost Live, "The Real Housewives of Miami" stars Joanna Krupa and Lea Black briefly discussed "Real Housewives of New Jersey" star Teresa Giudice's recent legal troubles.
Teresa and Joe Giudice were charged with 39 counts of fraud in July, with conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, bank fraud, making false statements on loan applications and bankruptcy fraud between September 2001 and September 2008. Joe Giudice is also charged with failing to file tax returns from 2004 to 2008, during which time he allegedly earned almost $1 million. They were released on $500,000 bond on July 30.
Krupa noted that when someone agrees to participate in a reality show, "you take it with the good and the bad," but declined to comment further because, "I haven't really followed it and it's not my business."
Black was more critical of the media's spotlight on the Giudices' legal woes, saying, "I think the media should stay out of it because they've got enough problems ... I'm rooting them and wishing them well."
"The Real Housewives of Miami" Season 3 premieres August 12 at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
Should the media stay out of the Giudices' legal battle, or do the reality stars deserve the scrutiny? Weigh in below!
