It’s about to get real for Real Housewives of New Jersey star, Teresa Giudice, as she is scheduled to surrender to federal marshals and begin her prison sentence.

The reality star actually made an appearance on Glam, a health/beauty/lifestyle channel on YouTube, sharing her New Year’s resolutions.

In the video, Giudice tells Dina Manzo of Franklin Lakes, her pal, fellow Real Housewife of New Jersey and co-star in the video. “Going forward, I would like to stop eating bad carbs,” They both resolve to “build” their derrieres — through regular exercise — and Giudice pledges to “keep being around positive people that make me happy and just keep the negative out” Giudice said.

Manzo’s final resolution, which Teresa appears to heartily embrace: “Let’s not let life get in the way and spend more time together this year.”

Unfortunately for Giudice, her 2015 resolution will have to be followed in the “joint”. In October, she was sentenced to 15 month bid in federal prison after pleading guilty to mortgage fraud.

Teresa and her husband, Joe, managed to spend the holidays together before she begins she prison bid.

Joe was sentenced to three years and five months. He will serve his bid once his wife is released, which allows the couple, who live in Montville, to care for their four daughters ages 5 to 13.

Teresa will likely report to the federal minimum-security satellite camp for women in Danbury, Conn. On Oct. 22, U.S. District Judge Esther Salas told Teresa and her attorney that the Bureau of Prisons had designated Danbury for her.
The bureau, which can place inmates anywhere, declined to confirm that Danbury is where Teresa will serve her time, depending on the severity of the crime, usually an inmate is placed within a reasonable area where family and friends could visit.

“We wouldn’t address it until the inmate actually surrenders or is brought to our custody,” a spokesman said in an interview in late November. “What we try to do is put an inmate within 500 miles of their release address to facilitate that family-and-friends contact.”

Within a few weeks of her surrender, the spokesman explained, the public will be able to go to the bureau’s website, type in “Teresa Giudice” and find her projected release date.


As of Friday afternoon, her status was: “Not in BOP custody. Release date: unknown.”
“It usually takes maybe two to four weeks to get a release date, but once that’s in there, you can track that and any changes online,” the spokesman said.

Wherever Teresa ends up, she’ll be living in dorm- or barracks-style housing with no locking cell doors or bars.

Having to share a metal bunk with a stranger and keep all her belongings in a small locker will be a big adjustment for a woman coming from a 10,044-square-foot home with walk-in closets.
