Joe Giudice, of "Real Housewives of New Jersey" fame, likely won't escape his 41-month federal prison sentence, but his wife Teresa is hoping a judge will agree to let her serve her 15-month punishment in a halfway house.

A lawyer for Teresa Giudice filed a letter with a judge in Newark this week, asking for a recommendation that she serve 12 months in a halfway house, The Associated Press reported.

Giudice was sentenced to 15 months in prison after she pleaded guilty to bankruptcy fraud and conspiracy. Her husband, Giuseppe "Joe" Giudice, was sentenced to 41 months.

The government opposes Teresa Giudice's request. Prosecutors wrote in a filing Tuesday that the judge recommended prison time at the Oct. 2 sentencing hearing.

Giudice has also requested to be housed at a prison camp facility in West Virginia or Danbury, Connecticut, instead of a detention facility in Manhattan or Brooklyn.
