RHONJ’s Teresa Giudice Recalls Prison Life & Capitalizing Off Prison Exit

RHONJ OG Teresa Giudice is opening up about her time behind bars nearly ten years after serving an 11-month sentence for tax fraud.

So much has changed in Teresa Giudice‘s life since she exited prison on December 23, 2015, that it’s almost hard to remember that she served 11 months at the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, Conn.

The RHONJ OG and her now ex-husband, Joe Giudice, pleaded guilty to bank, mail, wire, bankruptcy, and tax fraud in 2014. Teresa was sentenced to 15 months in prison, which was later downgraded to 11 months due to good behavior, while Joe got 41 months behind bars.

Now, almost a decade later, Teresa is opening up about her time behind bars, her anger towards Joe Giudice, and more.

“I have to say the food was really good. And I actually cooked there,” Teresa shared during an appearance on the Hollywood Raw podcast with Dax Holt and Adam Glyn.

“I cooked dinner for everyone,” Teresa revealed, noting that she made things like chicken stir fry and banana nut muffins.

When asked how many people she cooked for in prison, the RHONJ star said: “First, it was a camp setting. I think there was maybe 200. My roommate was a politician. I was in there with doctors, lawyers. Yeah, I mean, I’ve met a lot of cool people in there.”

On the podcast, Teresa also admitted that she staged her prison release photo to make some cash.

“The only time [I made a deal with paparazzi was] when I got out of jail,” Teresa confessed, referring to her deal with PEOPLE magazine for exclusive photos of her prison release at 5 am on December 23, 2015.

“They wanted the first photo, and I did it,” she explained. “I was like, ‘If they’re going to get it anyway, I might as well make money off of it.’”

Teresa did not reveal how much she made on the photos but explained that she believes the deal was put together by her reps at the time.

During the podcast, the RHONJ OG then revealed that it “took a long time” for her to “forgive” her now ex-husband Joe because her parents died not too long after her release from jail.

“I came home, I lost my mom eight months later. And then my dad moved in with us, and he was so upset,” she recalled. “He cried for a year straight after my mother passed away, and then I had my dad with us for three years, and then he passed away.”

Teresa noted that she and Joe “don’t talk that much” these days but says she will communicate with him when she “[needs] him.”
