WATCH Teresa Giudice on 'Hard' Time With Husband Joe in Prison

Real Housewives of New Jersey” star Teresa Giudice said it is “hard” for her and her daughters to see the patriarch of their family, Joe Giudice, in prison, but the family is in regular contact.

“We e-mail every day," Giudice, a mother of four daughters, said of her husband. "We talk every day and I see him every week.”

Joe Giudice began a 41-month sentence at a New Jersey prison in March, after pleading guilty to conspiracy and bankruptcy fraud charges.

Giudice, 44, at times became too emotional to continue while speaking about Joe with ABC News’ Mara Schiavocampo in an interview that aired today on “Good Morning America.”

She said the couple’s four daughters –- Gia, Milania, Audriana and Gabriella –- are faring okay with their father away from home.

“You know, [they] miss their dad, of course, tremendously, just like I do. But you know they're doing as well as could be expected,” she said. “They’re amazing. They’re really strong young girls.”

Joe, also 44, could also face a possible deportation back to Italy in connection with his charges after his jail sentence ends. The reality TV star said, though, that she has no doubt her family will be reunited when Joe is released from prison.

“No, I think our future is not uncertain,” Giudice said. “He's gonna be home. We're gonna be together. Our family's gonna be reunited again, and that's what I'm looking forward to.”

Giudice’s own homecoming from prison last December -- after serving 11 and a half months of a 15-month sentence after pleading guilty to multiple offenses that included conspiracy to commit wire fraud and bankruptcy fraud -- will be documented on the new season of Bravo’s “Real Housewives of New Jersey.”

Giudice said the day she was reunited with her daughters after prison was "one of the best days" of her life.

"It was an incredible feeling," said Giudice, who detailed her homecoming experience in a new chapter of her book "Turning the Tables."

The "Real Housewives" season premiere, airing July 10, will put Giudice back in the spotlight with her sister-in-law, Melissa Gorga. Viewers have watched the conflict between the two in the past, but this year they say to expect something different.

“I feel like it's like how it used to be,” Giudice said of their relationship now.

“We have like a funny banter together and we have fun together,” Gorga, 37, added. “I just think that she’s calmer, just a little bit calmer.”

Giudice herself said she has grown from her legal troubles.

“You do grow, and you learn from your experiences, and that's obviously what happened to me,” she said.
