There is a long and celebrated history of reality stars going to prison: think Paris Hilton, various Teen Moms, and even Khloe Kardashian.
None of them served longer than a couple of weeks (most of them just a few hours), but Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice, 43, has just been released after spending 11 months in the slammer for fraud.
Throughout the ordeal, Giudice kept a diary to describe the goings on at a minimum security women’s prison, which feature in the inevitable memoir she’s released, called Turning the Tables: From Housewife to Inmate and Back Again.
Hey guys! Wanted to let you all know that my New book will be released on February 9th! I’m very excited for all of you to read it! It was a tough book to write but it’s real and it’s from my heart. I appreciate all the love and support through the ups & downs as you guys have kept me strong❤ I’m very grateful! love love love …love you all! ❤️T #TurningtheTables #teresagiudice makeup by @mspriscillanyc Hair @edyta916
She’s described her prison stint as a “living hell”, but it actually doesn’t sound all bad: “I went to my first party the first week I was there,” she writes in the book, according to Fox News.
