Bethenny Frankel may not feel bad for Teresa Giudice's legal problems, but at least one fellow Housewives star has voiced some concern.

Real Housewives of Miami star Adriana De Moura spoke about Teresa and husband Joe's recent fraud indictment, noting that her main worry revolves around the children.

"I don't know Teresa, personally. We have obviously been in the same 'franchise,' but the first thought that came to my mind when I heard the news was the children," De Moura tells E! News.

"As a mother, to me it's just heartbreaking to think that four little girls will have both their parents incarcerated. I think that's just drastic. Dramatic," she added.

 Frankel, on the other hand, was not as sympathetic.

"My first thought today was, 'Oh, if they weren't on reality TV, none of this would probably ever be exposed,'" the former Real Housewives of New York star told Us.

"And it's just funny how certain people are [like a] moth to a flame," Frankel continued. "It's almost like—not that you want to get caught—but people who love to be in the spotlight often have a lot of skeletons in their closet. It's just an interesting thing."

The Giudiceshave been accused of conspiring to defraud lenders, illegally obtaining mortgages and other loans and allegedly trying to shield their assets during a bankruptcy case totaling 39 counts against them. They did not yet enter their pleas to these charges, but are expected to at their arraignment hearing Aug. 14.

If convicted, each spouse could face a maximum prison sentence of 20 or 30 years. Each were released on $500,000 bond during their previous hearing.
