Teresa Giudice Talks Indictment, Jail Time, Staying Strong For Her Daughters (VIDEO)

"Why is this happening to me?" Teresa Giudice asked Andy Cohen during a special "Watch What Happens Live." The "Real Housewives of New Jersey" star and her husband, Joe, are facing prison time on federal charges and are opening up about the indictments for the first time.

"I can't fall apart, Andy. I have my daughters, they mean the world to me ... maybe something that my daughters can learn from this is that my mom was really strong through all of this and was there for us and I hope they always have that with them," Teresa said wiping away tears.

In the video below, Teresa and Joe discuss jail time. Joe said he thinks they could face 100 years in prison, but Teresa corrected him that it's 50 total.

The sit down interview airs on Sunday, Sept, 29 at 9 p.m. ET after the "Real Housewives of New Jersey" season finale.
