‘Real Housewives' Star Teresa Giudice to Release Book About Prison Stint

"Real Housewives of New Jersey" star Teresa Giudice will be releasing a tell-all memoir about her stint in the prison next year.

The reality star announced that her book, "Turning the Tables: From Housewife to Inmate and Back Again" will be released on Feb. 9, four days after she finishes home confinement following a prison stint for fraud and conspiracy charges, according to E! News.

The book will feature diary entries Giudice wrote while behind bars at the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, Connecticut. The prison is the same institution where Piper Kerman was incarcerated before writing "Orange Is the New Black," which was later adapted into the hit Netflix show by the same name. 

Giudice said in a statement that the book will shed light on a different woman than the one seen making digs and getting into fights with her fellow co-stars on "Real Housewives."

"The world will see a new Teresa. A different Teresa. Well, actually, the Teresa I always was," Giudice said, according to E!.

Giudice is set to be released from prison on Dec. 23, and will serve the remainder of her sentence under house arrest.

Once she is released her husband Joe Giudice will begin serving his 41-month sentence. The arrangement was made to ensure their four daughters would have at least one parent in the home at at all times.
