Teresa Giudice is revealing why July has been one of the hardest months of her life.
Teresa's husband Joe's father, Frank Giudice, collapsed at their home which led to his untimely death last month, and the couple has found themselves in legal trouble that could result in jail time and deportation. Teresa and her husband Joe pleaded guilty to multiple fraud charges in a New Jersey federal court.
While the pair featured on "Real Housewives of New Jersey" will not be sentenced until September, Joe faces a potential deportation or 37 to 46 months in jail, while Teresa faces 21 to 27 months. However, it seems the untimely death of Joe's father Frank is weighing heavier on the heart of Teresa's family.
The Bravo TV reality television star took to Twitter to post an emotional message, along with a photograph of the late Frank Giudice.
"Always thinking of u Dad. This has been the hardest month of our lives," she tweeted. "Each day seems to get harder. We (love) You."
Last week, Teresa took to her Bravo TV blog to begin the sixth season of her show by letting fans know how she believes God will help her through her family's tough times.
"I'm so blessed for the amount of love and support I've been given by everyone around me, including all of you. It means the world to me. Thank you so-so-SO much," the Catholic reality television star wrote. "It has been a difficult year for my family, and we still have difficult things ahead. It is a lot of stress and that stress has taken a toll on me and my family, but we will get through it with love and with God's help."
The Giudices are a Catholic family and Radar Online previously reported that they have been relying on their faith to get them through this time.
"Spending time with her family minister is helping during a very dark time," a source reportedly told Radar Online previously. "She has always been extremely religious and is relying on it more now than ever."
