‘RHONJ’ Star Teresa Giudice Is Doing WHAT in Prison?!
After nearly four months, Teresa Giudice has ditched her designer duds for prison jumpsuits, and is “adjusting well” to life in prison. The “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star has been keeping busy finishing her 15-month sentence by teaching exercising classes and cooking in the kitchen, her lawyer told People.
"She is helping to teach exercise classes,” revealed attorney James J. Leonard, Jr. to the magazine. "The women take turns leading classes, and she has her little group, so once in a while she takes the lead."
It's no surprise the reality star and cookbook author has also been helping in the prison kitchen, which her attorney said “reminds her of home.”
"Teresa has a job working in the kitchen," Leonard said. "She told me she enjoys it because it helps her pass the time and allows her to interact with the other inmates."
Giudice has been making new friends, despite recent reports claiming the Housewife was acting like a diva behind bars.
"Any reports that she is behaving like a diva in prison and not getting along with inmates and the staff is 1,000 percent false," Leonard said. "She is getting along well with everyone – staff, inmates – all the way down the line."
He continued, “Prison is all about establishing and maintaining a routine, and she has done that. She has adapted well."
Giudice turned herself in to Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, Connecticut, on January 5 to serve time for bankruptcy fraud and conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud.
Her attorney confirmed the mother of four would be released December 23, finishing the last two months of her prison sentence under house arrest.
