Teresa Giudice won't be getting any sympathy from fellow Bravo star Bethenny Frankel. The 42-year-old former "Real Housewives of New York City" star shared her thoughts on "Real Housewives of New Jersey" stars Teresa and Joe Giudice being indicted for fraud this week, while promoting her talk show, "Bethenny," at the TCA tour panel at the SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills on Wednesday.
"My first thought today was, 'Oh, if they weren't on reality TV, none of this would probably ever be exposed.' And it's just funny how certain people are [like a] moth to a flame. It's almost like -- not that you want to get caught -- but people who love to be in the spotlight often have a lot of skeletons in their closet. It's just an interesting thing."
On Monday, Teresa, 41, and Joe, 43, were charged in a 39-count indictment with conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, bank fraud, making false statement on loan applications and bankruptcy fraud. They appeared in court on Tuesday, and were each released on $500,000 unsecured bail bonds, with a hearing set for Aug. 14.
"I haven't paid that much attention," Frankel explained of the Giudice's legal woes. "Do I feel sorry for them? No, I don't. Not so much, because it broke the law. You broke the law and you went on television. That's not really that smart."
But Frankel, mom to 3-year-old daughter Bryn, who is going through a divorce from husband Jason Hoppy, does feel sorry for the Giudices' four daughters. "I feel badly for them because they have kids," she explained, "and their kids didn't sign up for this."
The Giudices -- parents to Gia, 12, Gabriella, 10, Milania, 7, and Audriana, 3 -- have a hearing set for Aug. 14. If convicted, they could face more than 50 years in prison.
