Nearly a week after Joe and Teresa Giudice were indicted on fraud and tax charges, Teresa's Real Housewives of New Jersey castmate Caroline Manzo is speaking out about the situation.
"I text her on the day of the indictment and I sent the message that I'll keep to myself," she revealed to Andy Cohen on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live on Sunday. "She responded back and I'm going to keep that to myself as well."
Though the matriarch didn't dish too much on the conversation, she did share her feelings.
"I can't even wrap my head around it," she said. "This is a big deal. And I think for us, the Housewives, we always comment on trivial things, and I think for me, you know, the Manzo family, I think our position is going to be just stay quiet because it's just too big and serious for the peanut gallery. I'm just going to leave it at that."
Teresa, 41, and Joe, 43, were arrested last week and charged with conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, bank fraud, making false statements on loan applications and bankruptcy fraud in a 39-count indictment. If they are found guilty, they could spend the rest of their lives in jail.
But the brunette author hasn't been letting the bad news stop her from living life.

Just two days after she was released from prison on $500,000 bail, Teresa made her first public appearance at the Beauty Buster Awards in NYC on July 31 where she collected an award and stayed for two hours.
The very next day, she boasted about her Hamptons trip with three of her four daughters and former fellow Housewife (and Caroline's sister) Dina Manzo on Twitter and Instagram.

And over the weekend, Joe joined his wife on the east end of Long Island for some fun in the sun.
As for what Caroline thinks about Teresa downplaying the whole situation, she shares, "No surprise there. It's all good. As long as everybody's in a happy place, I'm happy. It's all good. There are things in life I worry about getting credit for — that's not one of them."
