Teresa Giudice: I would love to compete on 'Dancing with the Stars!'

Teresa Giudice would be more than willing to replace her prison jumpsuit memories with new dancing costume memories.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey and former The Celebrity Apprentice contestant has revealed she'd love to be a contestant on ABC's Dancing with the Stars.
"They said, 'Would you ever do it?' And I said, 'Of course, if I can, I would do it,'" she told Reality TV World on Saturday following an appearance and book signing event at Mohegan Sun casino to promote her new memoir Turning the Tables: From Housewife to Inmate and Back Again.
Teresa reiterated about the potential gig, "Of course I would. It's one of my favorite shows."
However, the reality TV star wasn't able to take advantage of the offer because of a scheduling issue.
"I love Dancing with the Stars. It's one of my favorites. They did ask me to be on it, but I couldn't because I was doing Housewives. I think they're kind of mad at me," Teresa said with a laugh at the Mohegan Sun appearance, which was part of the casino's long-running Reality Check event series.
Despite her many talents, Teresa admitted to her fans she doesn't consider herself a good dancer.
"No, I mean, I think we all think we can dance, but I never went to dancing school or anything, so I definitely need to be taught. I would like to be on [the show], but I just don't know how I'm going to do that with the four kids and going to California. But I would love to be on it," she explained.
Teresa is currently taking care of her four daughters -- Gia, 15, Gabriella, 11, Milania, 10, and Audriana, 6 -- while her husband Joe Giudice serves his 41-month prison sentence for multiple counts of fraud. He just surrendered himself to New Jersey's Federal Correction Institute, Fort Dix, on March 23.
Teresa also has a lot on her plate already with work, as she's got a sequel to Turning the Tables coming out in June as well as the expected seventh-season premiere of The Real Housewives of New Jersey in July. Teresa, who confessed she "will never stop working," said she would even be up for writing another cookbook.
"As things happen, I will definitely let everybody know," Teresa told her fans. "You'll be the first to know!"
