For the first time, the world is getting a peek into the much-less-glamorous new life of Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice. The table-flipping reality show personality has been serving time at the Federal Correctional Institution (FCI) in Danbury, Connecticut since January. She was sentenced to 15 months after pleading guilty to fraud charges.
Us Weekly has photos of Giudice and her family in the visitation room at FCI. The pic shows her sporting shorter, curly hair, a green prison jumpsuit, and a lot less makeup than we’re used to see her wearing on TV. More from the Us Weekly piece:
During a four-hour chat at the couple’s Garden State mansion, Joe, 44, confided in Us Deputy News Director Jennifer Peros about everything from his Mr. Mom duties and Teresa’s life behind bars to their nightly phone calls and weekly visits at Danbury.
“I cry more than the girls,” Joe admits to Us of saying goodbye to his wife, 42, at the end of their six-hour reunions. “I pretty much cry every time I leave. Like a little baby.”
Teresa, for her part, is staying strong and making sure that her family is taken care of. She emails with her daughters regularly, though her youngest, Audriana, “thinks she’s working,” Joe tells Us.
“I miss Joe and my girls terribly,” adds Teresa to Us (through her lawyer).
