Playing EXCLUSIVE: Teresa Giudice Reveals How Filming 'Real Housewives' Will Fit Into Their Lives as Joe Giudice Goes to Prison

Cameras may have been rolling when Teresa Giudice was released from prison, but don't expect to see her husband, Joe, as he leaves to serve his own prison sentence when The Real Housewives of New Jersey returns.

"That's none of their business, and they're not going to capture anything," Joe exclusively told ET in the reality TV couple's only interview before he is incarcerated.

"We haven't crossed that bridge yet," Teresa added. "Listen, I know we're on this reality show, but you know, we're also human beings. And we want to keep some things private, just between us and our four daughters. So, we'll cross that bridge when we get to it."

Joe will begin his 41-month sentence on March 23 at the Fort Dix Federal Correctional Institution in New Jersey -- the same prison where Apollo Nida from Real Housewives of Atlanta is currently imprisoned.

Still, Joe has not turned to his fellow Bravo star for inmate-to-inmate advice.

"I don't even now who he is to be honest with you," he admitted, before Teresa explained, "Yeah, they never spoke. They never met...When I go to Bravo events -- I met Phaedra at a commercial shoot once -- but Joe never comes to those."

Meanwhile, Teresa, who was released from prison in December after serving 11 months, will continue filming RHONJ while Joe is locked up.

"It's my job," Teresa explained. "It's something that I've been doing now for a long time. And now that I've been doing it, and after all this happened, like I'm not saying goodbye now. Now I'm just going to ride it out. They're like family to me."

In fact, Teresa opened up about how supportive fellow Housewives like Jacqueline Laurita and Dina Manzo have been throughout her scandal.

"They've all been great, they've been amazing with reaching out. I mean that's all you can really do, but it's nice you know," she revealed. "I have to say between the fans and family, friends, costars, they've all been amazing, just by reaching out and just saying, 'We love and support you.' That's good enough."

That said, there is one person she has not heard from yet: Caroline Manzo.

"Um, I haven't spoken to Caroline, but it's okay," Teresa said. "I wish her well."
