Teresa Giudice is still living like a Bravolebrity behind bars! RadarOnline.com has learned she hosted a prison viewing party on Sunday night, and welcomed fellow inmates to watch the debut of her Bravo television special, Real Housewives of New Jersey: Teresa Checks In.
The Danbury Correctional Facility does have cable television, including Bravo, according to an insider, which "happens to be the most popular channel among the female inmates!" But Sunday was Teresa's big night as her special debuted on air.
According to the source, "Teresa was joined by other inmates and she laughed and cried watching Joe, her kids and parents. She was so proud of Gia for being so mature and stepping up and Teresa was also impressed with Joe's involvement with the girls."
But there were some low points. "It was hard for Teresa to hear Joe say he no longer sleeps in their bedroom without her there," the source said.
But ultimately, "Teresa thought Bravo did a great job with the editing and she was really happy with it."
Said the source, "The other inmates were clapping throughout the entire episode and Teresa really got a lot of support from the group. These women have become confidantes and sisters to Teresa, and without this sisterhood, she wouldn't be able to get through the day."
After the special, Joe Giudice and Joe Gorga were guests on Andy Cohen's Watch What Happens Live.
When Joe Giudice was prodded by Cohen to send his wife — who was indeed watching — a message, he said: "Hello baby I love you. You know what your brother asked me to do, he asked me to kiss him — I told him to kiss my a**!"
Radar's source added, "Teresa got teary-eyed at Joe's comments, even though he was making light of it...trying to make her laugh."
