What has everyone been so worried about? Former star of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” Teresa Giudice, is about one week into her federal prison sentence, and according to the lawyer who is becoming famous for
NEVER shutting up doing interviews, says she is doing just fine.
Actually, fine is an understatement, because evidently, Teresa is doing fantastic! Giudices’s lawyer, James Leonard, Jr., shared the joy with People Magazine, assuring Teresa’s family and fans that the criminal reality star is settling into her new digs nicely.
“She’s doing great,” the Real Housewives of New Jersey star’s lawyer, James J. Leonard, tells People. “I got a series of emails from her and she is doing phenomenally. It seems like she is getting acclimated very well.”
Phenomenally? Teresa wasn’t doing THIS well on the outside! Leonard also assures us all that everyone in the slammer thinks that Teresa is just swell, according to the communication he has received from his client, via the prison email messaging system.
“She tells me that everybody is nice and everybody is treating her respectfully. She said both the staff and the inmates are being nice to her and that she is getting along fine.”
Leonard also blabs that Teresa is expecting a visit from Joe this weekend, and assumes that the kids will also be coming along. It has been reported that Joe passed on the visit Saturday, instead choosing to attend a cheer competition, with daughters, Gia and Milania. I wonder what the children will think when reading about their mother carrying on with life without them, and adjusting “phenomenally?” According to a family guide entitled ‘When A Parent Goes to Prison/ A Guide to Discussing Your Incarceration With Your Children‘, the children need reassurance that their mother is fine, but it needs to be balanced with the hard truth that prison is NOT a good place, and being without them will never be “phenomenal.”

Answer the question, “Are you OK?” such as “I am not OK in here but I can certainly handle it”, or “I am OK in some ways. I have a bed and food and books to read. But I am not OK because prison is not a good place to be. And most of all I can’t be with you” balance the truth with some reassurance that the parent misses the child and is not in severe danger.
I get it…Teresa is tough, and will just brush this little life detour off like a piece of lint. She will be ready to conquer all things fabulicious upon the moment she’s sprung, because NOTHING will derail the cash hauling career of this reality entrepreneur! But if her girls are truly her “everything”…Teresa may want to muzzle her new mouthpiece, and play down the hard sell towards forced incarcerated contentment. Maybe even give honesty a try.
