NEWARK, New Jersey — "Real Housewives of New Jersey" star Teresa Giudice (JOO'-dys) is petitioning to serve most of her federal prison sentence in a halfway house.

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

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.
