The shocking development came after Teresa didn’t consult with Feldman before she asked the judge in her fraud conviction to let her serve her sentence at Connecticut’s Danbury Federal Prison (the facility that inspired Orange Is the New Black) in order to be closer to her family in the Garden State.
"Sadly, my time with Teresa and has come to an end,” Feldman told E! on Monday, explaining in detail how Teresa put in the request without her “knowledge or input;” didn’t refer to her in the official filing; and has breached her trust with similar lapses like this in the past.
“This is clearly not the first time my advice has not been followed,” Feldman said, “but this is the time where the stakes are the highest.
"I work hard to maintain a strong relationship with the Bureau of Prisons — as I've tried to instruct Teresa, this is a process that must be respected.”
Feldman said that an assignment to a specific facility is looked upon “as a gift,” not a right by officials, and that “by making this request, Teresa has jeopardized months of work, months of preparation and, in fact, may jeopardize where she is ultimately designated or sent to.”
As Radar previously reported, the odds are against Giudice getting the transfer anyway, as Danbury is transitioning to only housing male inmates.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Teresa’s husband “Juicy” Joe will be the only parent at home to care for their four daughters — Gia, 13, Gabriella, 10, Milania, 8, and Audriana, 5 — when the cookbook-haircare maven enters prison Jan. 5.
When Teresa is released, Joe will enter custody for a total of 41 months, and possibly deported to his native Italy thereafter.
