Embattled Real Housewives of New Jersey's Teresa Giudice broke her silence today after five months in Danbury Federal Prison, where she is serving 15 months after pleading guilty to tax fraud. She sent a message via Twitter — apparently one can tweet from prison — to her fans. In one of her last interviews before beginning her sentence, she told Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live about her reaction to a year plus sentence in prison, saying "At one point, I couldn't even move my fingers. They were stuck. I couldn't open my hands ... my nerves were shot, I've had sleepless nights."
The reality star's husband, Joe Giudice, who also also accepted a plea deal, will begin his time behind bars — 3.5 years — when his wife is free. The judge staggered their sentences in the interest of the their four young daughters. Danbury Federal Prison is the inspiration for one of our favorite Netflix shows, Orange Is The New Black.
