Lisa Vanderpump of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fame chatted recently with E! News about Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice. Even though she and Giudice haven't visited since she and her husband Joe Giudice were sentenced to prison for fraud, she says the two have texted back and forth regularly.

"I have a lot of empathy for her situation as regarding her children and the family, because I know she's absolutely a wonderful mother," Lisa said. "She worships the children, so I do feel sorry for her about that, I really do."

Teresa Giudice was sentenced to 15 months in prison on fraud charges. She will serve her term first while Joe--who was sentenced to 41 months for fraud and failure to file income taxes--stays with the couple's four daughters. Joe will serve his term once Teresa is released. This will ensure that one parent will be present for their children at all times.

Even though Lisa Vanderpump is empathetic toward her friend, she doesn't try to downplay what she did. There's really no way anyone can do that. Hopefully Teresa and Joe Giudice realize how fortunate they are that a judge is allowing them to serve their terms so someone can always be there for their daughters.

"Unfortunately, you know, actions have consequences and I don't know exactly what went down, but I know certainly, just from one Housewife to another, I send her love and support, and what doesn't kill you makes you stronger," Lisa said.

NeNe Leakes recently said she would consider visiting Teresa Giudice in prison. Do you think Lisa Vanderpump might think about doing the same?
