You Won't Believe What Teresa Giudice Looked Like in Prison

When Teresa Giudice returned home during Sunday night's Season 7 premiere of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, you could barely tell that she had just served 11 months in prison. Her hair, makeup, and ensemble were completely on point, as you can see in the below clip from the episode.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey Sundays at 8/7c on Bravo and stream next day on Peacock.

Girls, I'm Home

Teresa revealed how she was able to make such a stunning (and quick!) transformation upon her release during the RHONJ premiere after show hosted by The People's Couch's Brandy Howard and Julie Goldman. "One of my girlfriends [in prison] did my hair there," the RHONJ author explained. "She knew that I was gonna come home and there was gonna be cameras, so she wanted it to look perfect, so she kept ironing it with the straightening iron over and over." 

However, Teresa's hair routine in prison was a far cry from her signature long and luscious locks. "I slicked it back in a bun," she described her go-to prison 'do during the after show. "I just wanted my hair to get healthy, and I was like, this is the best time to do it. Why not? So I just slicked my hair back every day. I didn't care about it." 

See what other secrets from the RHONJ premiere Teresa and her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga spilled during the livestreamed event, below.


These days, Teresa's hair has never looked better. But then again, she's known how to make a statement with her coif her whole life.
