Teresa Giudice's Hair-Taming Project! (Glam Slam)

Despite her legal woes, “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” star Teresa Giudice hasn’t shied away from the spotlight.

Teresa and her husband, Joe, recently broke their silence to Andy Cohen on Bravo “Watch What Happens Live,” questioning, “Why is this happening to us?”

The reality TV couple faces up to 50 years in jail if convicted on 39 counts of tax crimes. Ouch!

But, Teresa wasn’t letting her troubles bring her down when Glam Slam met up with her at the Healthy Brand New Product Showcase in New York City. “We are in a good place now and that’s all that matters. You have to keep looking forward.”

Right now, Teresa is out promoting her Youthful 8 – Milania Hair Care line. It’s a vitamin-rich product that is designed to protect hair against heat and other environmental damage. “What made me get into this business is my hair was getting damaged from being on TV and from being on “The Real Housewives of New Jersey. I needed something to keep my hair strong because it was being styled so much.”

Teresa tells Glam Slam she couldn’t find a product she liked; so she co-created her own. “When you’re blowing it out, you want something that works great, especially when you have wavy or curly hair.”

Teresa says all four of her daughters are big fans of their mom’s hair care product. And, this New Jersey mom now hopes one of them has a future in the hair business, adding, “I hope one of them becomes a hairdresser, so I will have one [stylist] at home at all times.”
