New Jersey Housewife Teresa Giudice has spoken out in defense of Lori Loughlin, the Hollywood star who is facing a lengthy prison sentence over the college admissions scandal.

"I'm sure she'll make it through," Teresa told ET. "I feel women are strong. We have babies, we do it all. I'm sure whatever outcome it is, I'm sure she'll be fine with it." 

"Her daughters are older… You know, she did it for her daughters and, I mean, her daughters are grateful for what she did," Teresa continued. "She was just looking out for her daughters and trying to get them into a good school. But I guess that's it, just be open with them, and whatever the outcome is, it is. You have to deal with it and move forward."

Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli are accused of shelling out $500,000 in bribes to get their two daughters admitted to USC as recruits for the crew team. Neither daughter played sports. Loughlin pleaded not guilty to conspiring to commit fraud and money laundering in April.
