Teresa Giudice is understandably having a hard time adjusting to the new reality in her life — the fact that she is incarcerated for a period of 15 months after having been found guilty of fraud.
Looking at serving over a year in prison is hard enough for anyone, let alone a reality TV celeb like Teresa, who not only had to downgrade from her 10,000-square-foot mansion, but is also reportedly sharing a tiny jail cell.
As a source revealed over the last few days to Radar Online, “She’s in a cell with four other women.”
A far cry from the mansion in New Jersey, Teresa Giudice is being forced to eat some serious humble pie during her time at the Danbury Federal Correctional Institute in Connecticut, as she tries to get a good night’s sleep on her single metal bunk bed.
For the time being, Teresa can forget about her extensive walk-in closet, which houses her massive range of designer clothes at home, as the Real Housewives of New Jersey star makes do with khaki-colored prison uniform and her other belongings stored in a small locker.
Fortunately, for the time being anyway, Teresa Giudice is getting on just dandy with her four cell mates, one of whom is a “convicted drug dealer.”
The source revealed, “She hides out in the chapel a lot praying” when the pressure of communal life gets too much for her.
In line with the facilities’ Inmate Admission & Orientation Handbook, Teresa has her work cut out for her while in jail, and has a list of chores to help keep her cell clean and tidy.
Apparently, the cellmates are responsible on a daily basis for “making their bed in accordance with posted regulations before work call,” not something Giudice will be that used to.
On top of that, “Each inmate is also responsible for sweeping and mopping their cell floor, removing trash, and ensuring it is clean and sanitary.”
Let’s wait and see how life in prison pans out for Teresa, as she comes to terms with her new reality, whether she likes it or not.
