What is it with reality stars thinking they’re above the law? Hello, their every move is documented on camera so we can never believe it when they get caught doing something illegal.

This week, Teresa and Joe Giudice finally find out their fate and how much (if any) jail time they both face for the 39 charges they were indicted on in July 2013, including wire fraud, mail fraud, bankruptcy fraud, not filing tax returns ... sadly, the list goes on and on.

Unfortunately, Teresa and Joe aren’t the only reality stars who’ve had to pay for their mistakes. Here’s a look at 10 others who took a page right out of Orange Is the New Black!

  • Apollo Nida of 'The Real Housewives of Atlanta'

    1

    The hot husband of ultimate southern belle Phaedra Parks just began an eight-year sentence for money laundering and check fraud—and of course all the drama leading up to his surrender was caught on camera for next season of RHOA!

  • Adam Lind of 'Teen Mom 2'

    2

    It’s hard to keep up with the crimes of Chelsea Houska’s baby daddy. Adam is currently in jail for driving with a revoked license after just getting released from jail in August for the exact same thing!

  • Amber Portwood of 'Teen Mom'

    3

    It’s been a rough road for original Teen Mom Amber whose legal troubles began when MTV cameras caught her hitting ex-boyfriend Gary Shirley. From there, she was arrested on drug possession charges and finally opted for jail over court ordered rehab in June 2012. She was released almost four years early from her five-year sentence in November 2013.

  • Khloe Kardashian of 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians'

    It’s hard to believe but the Kardashian sister best known for her great advice and hilarious one-liners was once sentenced to 30 days in jail. Back in 2007, Khloe was arrested for a DUI and in 2008 was sent to prison for violating her probation. Luckily, the Lynwood, California Jail for Women was overcrowded and Khloe only had to serve about three hours total!

  • Alexis Neiers of 'Pretty Wild'

    Not only did we watch Alexis’ legal troubles unfold on her reality show, but they were also immortalized on the big screen when Emma Watson played her in the 2013 movie The Bling Ring. Alexis and her friends broke into the homes of celebs like Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, and Orlando Bloom. She ended up serving one month of a 180-day sentence, plus was fined $600,000!

  • Jason Wahler of 'Laguna Beach' & 'The Hills'

    6

    What is it about those bad boys that even Lauren Conrad isn’t immune? LC’s ex-boyfriend (you know, the one she didn’t go to Paris for!) has been in jail several times for assault and has had court ordered rehab.

  • Paris Hilton of 'The Simple Life' & 'The World According to Paris'

    7

    Things weren’t so simple for the heiress back in 2007 when she was sent to jail for 45 days for repeatedly driving with a suspended license and thus violating the terms of her probation.

  • Jenelle Evans of 'Teen Mom 2'

    8

    Oh Jenelle ... it’s hard to keep up with the number of times that Jace and Kaiser’s mom has gone behind bars. But from our count it’s roughly TEN times for charges ranging from domestic disputes to failing drug tests to heroin possession! Can’t you just hear her mom Babs sighing in disbelief?

  • Porsha Williams of 'The Real Housewives of Atlanta'

    9

    When Porsha and Kenya Moore got into a full-blown physical altercation while taping their Atlanta reunion, Porsha got the brunt of the blame and had to turn herself in on a misdemeanor count of simple battery! Her mug shot, however, was nothing short of Gone With the Wind fabulous!

  • Richard Hatch of 'Survivor'

    10

    Known for winning the very first season of the show AND ranking as one of the most famous reality TV villains ever, Richard’s also one of the first to go to jail. He was charged with tax evasion and served 51 months in a federal prison!
