Trenton, NJ, United States (4E) – Teresa Giudice is promoting her new book “Turning the Tables: From Housewife to Inmate and Back Again,” and in a recent interview, she revealed a lot about her 11-month prison stint.
The “Real Housewives of New Jersey” reality star shared that when she was to leave the comforts of her home as well as her family to move to prison at the Danbury Correctional Facility in Connecticut, she said that she felt like she was dying. She added, "It's like that movie Stepmom , I felt like I was dying and that I only had three months left to share every precious moment with my daughters before I left."
She pointed out that it was especially sad for her that her baby Audriana , her youngest, might forget her during her prison stint. She pointed out that her daughter was only five years old when she had to go to prison and the reality star did not want to be forgotten. She added, "I'm going to cry. I've never been away from my children, they're my life. I live for them."
The mother of four was released from jail just a day before Christmas Eve and this was her first post-prison interview. A source shared that after completing her stay in jail for nearly a year, she wanted to spend all the time she can with her family including her parents.
Giudice and her husband have to serve prison terms after they were sentenced for bankruptcy fraud and conspiracy. Her husband, Joe, will be starting his 41-month sentence this March at the Federal Correctional Institution at Fort Dix, New Jersey.
In another interview, she talked about her life in jail. She shared, "I mean there was mold in the bathrooms. There was not running water constantly. The showers were freezing cold … I mean, the living conditions were really horrible. Like, horrible. There were some nights that we didn't even have heat… It was — it was hell."
Giudice added that she worked in the kitchen and wiped down tables after breakfast thrice a week. She also revealed that there was even a whole lot more drama with the women in the prison she was at. She shared, "That's all there is, is drama. And I never lived with so many women in my life before. I mean that's all they – they thrive on drama. It was crazy to me.”
