Teresa Giudice Reunites With Andy Cohen And Tells All On WWHL!

Teresa Giudice made her grand return to Watch What Happens Live Tuesday night for the first part of her one-on-one interview with Andy Cohen to discuss her time in prison and what the future holds. When asked if The Real Housewives of New Jersey star holds herself accountable for why she served 11-and-a-half months in prison last year. "Of course I do," Teresa said in response in the clip below.

When Andy pressed Teresa further to explain what she did to end up at the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, Connecticut, she recounted everything that led up to and included her time in prison.

"I signed papers without reading them. Before I ever do that again, I'm going to make sure whatever I put my John Hancock on that I understand fully before signing any other papers in the future," she said. "And I pled guilty to what I did. I got sentenced. I served 11-and-a-half months. I apologized to the judge. I did my time."

Andy also asked if Teresa had paid back the more than $400,000 she owed in restitution. "My restitution's paid, thank God," she said.

When asked why her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga was never approved to visit her in prison during the 11-and-a-half months she served in the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, Connecticut, Teresa explained why Melissa wasn't approved to visit her in prison during part one of her one-on-one interview with Andy Cohen on WWHL Tuesday night. "By the time she sent it in, it was like three months later, and my list was full at the time. I took my brother-in-law Pete off the list to add my brother," she said.

Teresa also had personal reasons for not adding Melissa, with whom she has had a rocky relationship over the years, to her visitors list.

"When I left, obviously, things weren't the greatest between Melissa and I," Teresa told Andy. "Me and my brother were laughing about it, it was a scene that we already filmed [for the upcoming seventh season of RHONJ], and I said to him, 'I really didn't want to spend five hours sitting with Melissa and chatting with her in the visiting room,' and we laughed about it."

However, Teresa said she was happy that Melissa and Joe helped take care of her four daughters while she was away at prison, as we saw on Teresa Checks In. "Oh, of course. Listen, to me, family means the world to me," she said. "I love my brother. I love Melissa. I love my nieces and nephews. I want them in my life."

While Teresa Giudice was completing her prison sentence last year, Donald Trump officially announced his run for president. So if the Donald snags the Republican nomination, will Teresa give her former Celebrity Apprentice boss her vote? "Of course I'm gonna vote for Donald Trump," Teresa told Andy Cohen during Part 2 of their Watch What Happens Live one-on-one interview. "I think he's amazing. I think he'll make a great president."

Teresa had more nice things to say about Donald in her new memoir Turning the Tables: From Housewife to Inmate and Back Again, which was released on Tuesday, writing that Donald always had kind words to say about her husband Joe Giudice when she was a contestant on The Celebrity Apprentice in 2012.

When Teresa asked Andy which candidate will get his vote for president, he responded, "I haven't decided yet, but I'm pretty sure I'm not voting for Donald Trump."

Teresa Giudice spent years building up her culinary empire with best-selling cookbooks and Fabellini prosecco. But as we all know, Teresa has had to pull her attention away from her businesses to focus on her legal issues and subsequent 11-and-a-half months served in prison. So have her businesses taken a hit as a result? "Oh, it did," Teresa said of how her time in prison affected her businesses during part two of her Watch What Happens Live one-on-one Wednesday night. "Pretty much all my businesses went to sh** with this whole legal thing. They did."

But now that Teresa is out of prison, she's planning on restoring her businesses to their former glory. "So I have to rebuild now," she told Andy Cohen. "Listen, we all fall down, and we've just got to pick ourselves back up."
