NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - Prison is about to become the new home for one of the reality TV stars of "Real Housewives of New Jersey."

Teresa Giudice is scheduled to report to a federal prison in Danbury, Connecticut, on Monday morning to begin serving a 15-month sentence for bankruptcy fraud.

She and husband Joe Giudice pleaded guilty last year. The couple admitted hiding assets from bankruptcy creditors and submitting phony loan applications to get some $5 million in mortgages and construction loans.

Joe Giudice also pleaded guilty to failing to pay taxes. He will serve his 41-month sentence after his wife's sentence is completed. A federal judge staggered the sentences in deference to the couple's four children.

Joe Giudice is not an American citizen and could be deported to Italy when he's released.
