Teresa Giudice has insisted that she’s not too high-maintenance for prison, telling Andy Cohen she’d just “slick my hair back” behind bars during her recent interview on Watch What Happens Live. But RadarOnline.com has learned that as the reality of her prison-ready beauty routine has set in, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star is having a breakdown about giving up her extensions, fearing she’ll look practically bald!
"Yes, Teresa has had her attorney inquire about keeping the hair extensions," a source told Radar. “She will need to take out her extensions before beginning her prison sentence.”
“She would have probably been able to keep the extensions, but there would have been no way to manage the upkeep,” the source continued. "Even though the prisons that Teresa could go to have beauty salons, the special skills needed to manage the extensions just aren't available."
According to the insider, Giudice "relies on the extensions to give her the look of a full head of hair. However, Teresa's natural hair is actually very, very thin, and she doesn't have a lot of it. She is genuinely afraid that she is going to end up bald by the time she leaves prison after 15 months."
The upkeep of the hair extensions "costs Teresa thousands of dollars a year..and is very time consuming,” the source revealed. "Every two months, the hair extensions must be reapplied. Teresa's hairdresser has suggested clip in hair extensions, which only made her cry."
