While her judge denied her lawyer’s request for a half-way house, “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” reality personality Teresa Giudice will be sent to a minimum security prison to serve her 15 months for her fraud convictions.
The flamboyant and controversial Guidice will head to the Danbury Federal Correctional Institution in Connecticut early next year to begin serving her sentence. While the prison in the hit Netflix series “Orange Is The New Black” is set at a fictional place, Piper Kerman — who wrote the book upon which the series is based — served her own 13-month sentence at Danbury.
The result was her penning “Orange Is The New Black: My Year in a Women’s Prison.”
Guidice had specifically requested Danbury as a possibility for her incarceration.
When Teresa is released, her husband Joe Giudice will begin serving his 41 moth sentence at a location that has yet to be determined.
