While talking to a TMZ reporter, Teresa Giudice was asked if she had any advice for Todd and Julie since she also did time in prison for fraud. The Real Housewives of New Jersey star said the couple “should stay strong for their families. Manifest what they want when they come out — and to be strong for their children.”
Guidice added that for Todd and Julie, seeing their kids continue living their lives “will be hard, but they just have to make the best of it.” When the paps asked if it’s advisable for the Chrisley Knows Best kids to visit their parents in jail she said, “Of course, my children came every week!”
Teresa, who served 11 months in prison, said, “My children were young, but that’s the thing … based on their schedule, at least go once a month. Always keep connected.”
When asked about the food in prison, she said it’s not so bad and you get used to it. Guidice even revealed that she cooked during her prison stay. The Bravo star also advised Todd and Julie to take on different activities while in prison to keep their mind occupied. “I did exercise, Yoga, I wrote a book,” she said.
Todd was sentenced to 12 years in prison while Julie was sentenced to 7 years in prison for bank fraud and tax evasion. The couple will be serving sentences at different prisons and will begin their sentences in January 2023. Their daughter, Lindsie, says her parents are living every day like it’s their last.
“My parents regularly say, and I believe they’ve said on their podcast as well, that at this time, it’s basically living every day like it’s your last, enjoying the moment, spending time with their kids that are in Nashville.” Lindsie and Kyle, 31, are Todd’s kids from a previous marriage.
Lindsie also said that since she doesn’t live close to her parents’ home, she is staying in touch with them over the phone.
“I don’t have the luxury of being able to just pick up and go to Nashville and be there until January. But my parents are definitely dedicating their time in therapy and their biblical studies, as well as with their children.”
For now, Lindise Chrisley said they are all focused on family.
“It is the holidays. They fastly approach. My focus is on my parents, my siblings, and my child, and my niece. And I know that if they were asked the same questions, they would say the same answers.”
