Teresa Giudice’s prison job isn’t sitting well with the Real Housewives of New Jersey star. According to a source, Giudice is on laundry duty at the federal prison in Danbury, Connecticut.
“It was definitely not her first choice,” a prison insider revealed to Radar Online on January 15. “Teresa was unhappy when she found out the assignment because she thinks it’s disgusting work to have to do.”
If she had it her way, Teresa Giudice’s prison job would be in the kitchen. As fans of The Real Housewives of New Jersey are privy to, the reality star loves to cook, and has released a handful of cookbooks in recent years.
“She really was hoping that they would let her work in the kitchen. She wanted to be able to cook for everyone.”
However, because Giudice just arrived to the prison on January 5, she isn’t yet eligible for the coveted job. As the source explained, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star has to “work her way up to that job.”
In the meantime, Teresa Giudice’s prison job will require her to do the wash for around 200 inmates, and making from 12¢ to 40¢ per hour. Then, if she’s lucky, Giudice will be upgraded to a better position, which would net her between 23¢ to $1.15 per hour.
Radar Online claimed only around “16% of work-eligible inmates” are allowed to participate in higher-paying jobs, including jobs in the kitchen. With jobs such as these, inmates “gain marketable job skills while working in factory operations, such as metals, furniture, electronics, textiles, and graphic arts.”
Also during her time behind bars, as the Inquisitr reported, Giudice, who is currently serving a 13-month term for charges of bank and wire fraud, will allegedly be writing a tell-all, which will chronicle her time in prison.
Radar Online claims the book will be released once Giudice is done serving her prison term in early 2016.
“Teresa believes a book about how she coped with being in prison, and the obstacles she faced, would be a huge hit. Having already published several cookbooks, Teresa is touting this as a memoir that anyone could relate to. Teresa admires the way in which Martha Stewart handled her business after being released from prison, and would like to follow in that fashion.”
Teresa Giudice’s prison job will likely continue for the rest of her prison term, unless, as reported, she receives a different job.
