Teresa Giudice has officially begun her prison sentence.
The Real Housewives Of New Jersey star entered the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, Connecticut at about 3 a.m. Monday, her lawyer told WNBC in New York. (The prison’s web site had not yet listed Giudice in custody, as she was presumably going through the check-in process.)
As RadarOnline.com has reported, Teresa's first days in prison will likely include a thorough strip search and a psychological assessment. "She may be tested by other inmates because of her notoriety, more in the way of snide remarks than threats,” says a source.
In the weeks leading up to her prison sentence, Teresa was spotted spending time with her four daughters and looking for last-minute publicity opportunities to pull in some quick cash. She even made a bizarre New Year's resolution to eat less carbs!
