Teresa and Joe Giudice are both going to prison for their fraud convictions, but they'll be allowed to serve their sentences at different times. That means Joe can stay with their four daughters while Teresa serves her 15-month sentence, WetPaint reports, and then he'll serve his 41 months (after which he could be deported). And the family will have the holidays together: Teresa doesn't have to surrender until Jan. 5. Needless to say, she's "really scared," she said in court yesterday, according to Radar. The Real Housewives of New Jersey couple will spill more of their feelings in a special episode of Watch What Happens Live Monday, sources tell TMZ. And according to E!, Teresa will also take part in the upcoming Real Housewives season six reunion being filmed this Sunday.

As for whether Joe will in fact be deported, Teresa's attorney said yesterday in court that it was "almost certain" he will be, according to "They will not be holding hands at their daughters' graduation," he said. "They will not be holding hands at their weddings. They will not be holding hands at the hospital when their grandchildren are born. This family is not going to be temporarily separated. They will be permanently separated." Immigration officials haven't said anything other than that if they do decide on deportation, they'll wait until Giudice has finished his sentence. And Teresa's lawyer might be right in a different way: Sources tell Radar the Giudices' marriage is in serious trouble and that Teresa thinks Joe "royally screwed her over."
