Her impact on Bravo caught the attention of the nation. But nothing stole from her more than when she was convicted of fraud and sentenced to prison. Realty for her was now behind bars. From the iHeart Radio Studio I'm Unplugged and Totally Uncut with Teresa Giudice. The star of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of New Jersey and three-time New York Times bestselling author offers a behind-the-scenes look at life in prison, her marriage, her rise to fame, the importance of her family, and the reality TV franchise that made her a household name in her explosive and ultimately uplifting first-ever memoir TURNING THE TABLES: From Housewife to Inmate and Back Again by Teresa Giudice with K.C. Baker (Gallery Books; on-sale February 9th; Hardcover; $26.00). Teresa Giudice seemed to have the perfect life: a beautiful family, loving husband, caring friends, and a dream house until one day everything crumbled around her. A media firestorm ensued as she and her husband were convicted on federal fraud charges. “The glamorous, fun and drama-filled life I had led on show intersected with stone-cold reality,” Teresa states. The infamous, fun-loving Jersey mom of four was sentenced to fifteen months in prison. Her tiny prison cubicle in Connecticut felt so far removed from the comfortable life portrayed on television and most of all, her daughters. In her very first tell-all memoir, Teresa comes clean on all things Giudice: • Growing up with immigrant parents and learning the ways of her Italian heritage. • Meeting the love of her life and starting a family in Montville, New Jersey. • Her rise to fame and how The Real Housewives of New Jersey came to be. • Dealing with chaos, catfights, flipped tables, and constant scrutiny on national television. • Coming to terms with her prison sentence and her last night at home with her family. • How she emerged from prison as a survivor and the sacrifices her family endured. Featuring never-before-seen scans of her prison diary, TURNING THE TABLES captures some of the most memorable moments of her prison stay including:P> • The cringe-inducing fights between inmates she witnessed. • The awkward conundrum of being trapped when a fellow inmate had a…guest…over. • Fellow inmates selling her daily schedule to tabloids, which resulted in planes flying overhead trying to capture the moment Teresa stepped outside in her prison greens. • The crazy concoctions you will only find in prison like raisin moonshine and potato log. • Nasty and jealous inmates who wanted nothing but trouble. Madonna mia… Overall, Teresa reflects on the strength she found while confined. The support from her family on their weekly visits and the genuinely nice people she befriended while behind bars, Teresa emerged as a survivor. Friends, foes, and fans have speculated about Teresa’s prison experience, but nothing will prepare you for the revelations she makes in this entertaining and heartwarming memoir.
