Teresa Giudice Tweets About Pope from Prison
Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice may still have several months left on her 15-month prison sentence for fraud, but that doesn’t mean she isn’t enjoying some of the finer things in life, like joining in on our pope revelry … and at least limited access to TV.
The reality diva—and devout Catholic—tweeted from Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, Connecticut, last night her excitement for Pope Francis’s visit:
Watching the Pope Francis coverage on TV and I am crying; what a wonderful man, such a kind and gentle soul#ProudCatholic
— Teresa Giudice (@Teresa_Giudice) September 25, 2015
The tweet was met with a flood of responses, including one very obvious question:
One fan responded that Giudice’s daughter Gia actually did the tweeting after the message was dictated from her mom. Makes more sense (or at least you’d hope.)
As other tweets and Bravo sneak-peek clips have attested, Giudice has been keeping the faith since she was locked up last January. In one clip teasing an upcoming RHONJ special, Giudice is overheard on the phone praying, “Oh, please God bring me home to my family as soon as possible. … And bless my four daughters and my husband. Amen.”
Pope Francis will be visiting a local prison while he’s in town, but I don’t think he’ll make it up to Danbury. Maybe he’ll send Mrs. Giudice a blessing from Twitter.
