“The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” Giuseppe “Joe” Giudice is headed to prison for 41 months.

His wife, Teresa Giudice, who is often seen getting into wild screaming matches with her fellow Bravo stars on the series, is still awaiting sentencing in Newark, N.J, in federal court. It was suggested in court that the couple could possibly stagger their sentences in order to care for their four young daughters.

Joe Giudice must pay $414,000 in restitution.

He apologized in federal court in Newark Thursday, saying he disgraced many people.

The Giudices admitted that they hid assets from bankruptcy creditors and submitted phony loan applications to get some $5 million in mortgages and construction loans.

Both Giudices pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud and three types of bankruptcy fraud. Joe Giudice, 43, also pleaded guilty to failing to file a tax return for 2004, and acknowledged he didn’t file taxes on income of approximately $1 million between 2004 and 2008.

On their reality show, the Giudices are shown living in a lavish home and frequently spending on extravagant vacations and items for their kids.

Bravo has yet to comment on their reality star’s sentencing.
