Teresa Giudice Goes To Prison
Teresa Giudice is officially behind bars at a Federal Correctional Facility for fraud charges.
The days of frequent blowouts, over-the-top shopping sprees and extravagant parties are over for Teresa Giudice, now that she is in federal prison.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey star, 42, began a new, less-than-glamorous chapter in her life shortly after 3 a.m. Monday when she turned herself into authorities to serve a 15-month prison sentence for fraud, a rep from the Bureau of Prison confirmed to PEOPLE.
“She reported early this morning,” the spokesperson said in an email.
Giudice is serving her time at the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, Connecticut, a minimum security prison for women that inspired the hit Netflix series, Orange is the New Black – based on the memoir by Piper Kerman.
She could also be sent to the Alderson Prison Camp in West Virginia, where Martha Stewart served five months in 2004 and 2005 for obstructing justice and lying to federal investigators about a stock sale.
Giudice was sentenced on Oct. 2 after pleading guilty in March to bankruptcy fraud and conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud.
Poor Teresas’s gonna have to go 15 months without seeing her four girls.
Welp, do the crime do the time.
