"Never mess with the tax man," the TV host says on Watch What Happens Live.

It seems like everyone is glued to Teresa and Joe Giudice's intense legal situation — including Nancy Grace. On last night's Watch What Happens Live, a viewer wanted to know if the TV host thought the Real Housewives of New Jersey stars, who are facing a 39-count fraud indictment, would serve time, and Grace's prognosis was grim.

Grace first revealed that she does believe the charges are founded. "I think that they were in it together," she says of the parents of four, adding, "you know what, you can get away with shoplifting, maybe stealing a car, but don't mess with the feds when it comes to money. Never mess with the tax man, never mess with the feds. They have no mercy."

So does Grace think the couple will serve time? "I predict they are going down," she says, comparing their predicament to another high-profile case. "And much as Martha Stewart was used, I think they will be used as an example to other people."

Watch Nancy Grace weigh in on Teresa and Joe Giudice's indictment and tell us in the comments: do you think the Housewives couple will serve time?
