Teresa Giudice Tried to Be Strong for Her Family Despite Feeling "Helpless" in Prison

"Being there was like being in hell," the #RHONJ mom says about her 11 months away. 

Teresa Giudice may have tried to sugarcoat her life in prison for her family during her 11-month stay at the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, Connecticut, but her newly-released memoir, Turning the Tables: From Housewife to Inmate and Back Again (Gallery Books), candidly discusses what her experience was really like. And in the audiobook, narrated by Teresa herself, the Real Housewives of New Jersey mom opens up about how difficult her time spent in Danbury truly was, despite what folks on the outside thought. "Danbury is not a country club, though sometimes I led my husband and children to believe it was like one. Better for them to think I was in a posh prison, rather than suffering," she says. "But the reality of it was that being there was like being in hell. I felt like I was buried alive." 

Hear Teresa describe the experience in The Daily Dish's exclusive clip from the audiobook.

Teresa, Melissa Gorga, and Jacqueline Laurita will return to RHONJ  when Season 7 premieres later this year. Check out a preview of what's to come, featuring Teresa's first moments home, below.
