Teresa Giudice must be happy to be promoting her new book, "Turning the Tables: From Housewife to Inmate and Back Again," which is number two on the New York Times' best seller list, but we're guessing she's bummed to be sending her hubby Joe off to prison this month!

The couple attended a book signing in Mount Pocono, Pennsylvania, and but time is running out. Teresa was released from Danbury Correctional Facility in Connecticut on December 23, but Joe is due to start his own 41-month sentence on March 23.

Joe and Teresa were sentenced in October 2014 for bankruptcy fraud and conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud. The couple were permitted to serve their time separately to ease the blow on their four daughters, Gia, 15, Gabriella, 11, Milania, 10, and Audriana, 6.

However, the family is still worried that Joe might be deported to Italy. Joe has lived in America for two years, but he never became a US citizen. "There is no way Joe is going back to Italy without a huge long legal battle," a source told Radar back in September. "He had already begun the steps to become a citizen as the criminal case against him developed."
