Summary
Teresa Giudice, star of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, has seen it all, but nothing -- not even Real Housewives scandals -- could compare to the media firestorm that ensued after she was convicted on federal fraud charges. The infamous, fun-loving Jersey mom of four was sentenced to fifteen months in the same prison where Piper Kerman -- the real-life inspiration behind Orange Is the New Black -- did her time. Her tiny prison cubicle in Connecticut felt so far removed from the glamorous world portrayed on The Real Housewives of New Jersey. What was a skinny Italian to do? Keep a diary, of course. Teresa comes clean on all things Giudice: growing up as an Italian-American, meeting the love of her life and starting a family, dealing with chaos and catfights on national television, and eventually, coming to terms with the reality of life in prison. Featuring scans of her prison diary, Turning the Tables captures the most memorable moments of her prison stay, including the cringe-inducing fistfights she witnessed, the awkward conundrum of being trapped when a fellow inmate had a ... guest ... over, and the strength she found while confined between four concrete walls. Even at her lowest of lows, Teresa was able to live la bella vita by staying positive and realizing her purpose. "The world will see a new Teresa. A different Teresa. Well, actually, the Teresa I always was."
