Teresa Giudice: Bound For Orange is the New Black Prison!

Teresa Giudice has been sentenced to serve her 15-month prison term at the Danbury, Conn., location where the series Orange is the New Black is based.

Teresa Giudice Going to Court

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star was fired by her crisis manager earlier this week, allegedly for trying to orchestrate a move to this very spot.

Wendy Feldman ended her contract with her high profile client on Monday, for not following due process in her representations to the Bureau of Prisons.

Conflicting reports said that she tried to secure a place in a halfway house, which would have allowed her to work and visit home during the weekend.

In any case, a judge shot down her halfway house request, saying that her timing for such applications was all wrong and sending her off to Danbury.

Guidice, who was sentenced to 15 months in prison for fraud and conspiracy with her husband Joe Giudice (who got 41 months) is free until January 5.

The couple will serve their sentences separately so one is with their daughters, who you’re familiar with if you watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online.

Orange is the New Black, which is based on a memoir by Piper Kerman inspired by the year she served at the facility, has become a hit for Netflix.

Guidice will not be the only celebrity resident Danbury has seen in recent months. On Friday, October 3, singer Lauryn Hill was released from the facility.

Expect a lot more headlines from there once Teresa checks in. Here are 11 reasons, in GIF form, why her fellow inmates had best be on notice:

Teresa Giudice Headed To Danbury, CT Prison?

The judge reportedly said she should have mentioned it during the court proceedings on October 2, although Radar Online reports the judge likely wouldn’t have honored the request anyway. Now word has it Teresa has been told where she’s going to report. RELATED: Is Bravo saving Christmas for the Giudices?

TMZ reports that the Federal Bureau of Prisons has ordered Teresa to report to their Danbury, CT facility. That’s the prison that ‘Orange is the New Black’ is based on.

Now I thought Teresa wanted to go to Danbury, since it’s closer to her daughters in New Jersey, but TMZ claims she did NOT want to go there. Well, who wants to go to prison? At least it’s federal prison. That’s far nicer than the state facilities.

We’ll see if Teresa or Bravo make a statement confirming this assignment.

Dina Manzo Quits The Real Housewives of New Jersey: I Can’t Be Surrounded By Horrible People!

Ever since news broke that Jacqueline Laurita will return to The Real Housewives of New Jersey, reaction from fans and current cast members has been decidedly mixed.

With Teresa Giudice headed to prison for 15 months, producers were left with few options with regard to women who are available and might be able to bring a tenth of the drama that Queen T brought to the table.

Laurita seemed a safe – if not perfect – choice, but now it seems that adding her to the cast may have left execs with another vacancy to fill.

Jacqueline Laurita and Dina Manzo

Sources say Dina Manzo was furious to learn Laurita will be returning to the show, and now it looks like her anger may have prompted her to quit the series.

Asked by a fan on Twitter if she had any interest in returning to the show next season, Dina promptly tweeted back, “NONE my soul can’t bear to be around terrible people.”

Given the reports about Dina’s outrage over Jacqueline’s return, it’s safe to assume that Laurita is one of the “terrible people” she’s referring to.

Of course, it’s possible Dina was fired and is now trying to save face, but either way, it looks as though yet another Manzo won’t be returning to the Housewives franchise.

Teresa Giudice Is Bravo Saving Christmas For The Giudices?

Teresa Giudice Cooks at Parx Casino in PennsylvaniaThis Christmas is going to be the last holiday Teresa Giudice and Joe Giudice will get to spend together with their daughters as a family for a few years, at least. Teresa is scheduled to report to prison in early January, and as soon as she’s home, Joe will report for his sentence. Rumor has it Teresa and Joe have been at loggerheads about how this Christmas should be celebrated: she wants “couture” while he wants thrift store.” Well, Bravo may have saved the holiday for them. RELATED: Teresa Giudice begs judge for placement in Connecticut prison over West Virginia prison.

Bravo reportedly is offering Teresa $250K to film a ‘Real Housewives of New Jersey’ holiday special, according to Radar Online. A source claims:

Teresa had been very concerned about how she was going to pay for the extravagant gifts for their four daughters at Christmas. She didn’t want to cut back in buying any gifts for the girls, and with Bravo offering such a huge payday for a special makes her inclined to accept the offer.
“This could be a way for her to say goodbye to her fans ahead of beginning the 15-month prison sentence.”

Teresa reportedly wanted to go REALLY big this year, and that’s saying something, given what a typical Christmas with her is like.

Typically, Teresa would spend up to $10,000 on gifts for just the girls. From designer handbags, jewelry, one of a kind dolls, there isn’t anything that the girls asked for and didn’t get.”

Bravo is said to be eager to get this episode filmed, too.

[The special would] absolutely be taped as soon as possible. Teresa has been so erratic with her decisions recently that Bravo wants to get it locked down and done. It would feature Teresa shopping for gifts, possibly doing some charity work and family stories with the girls. Bravo would milk it for ratings and make it at least a two-night special.”

Erratic decision-making or not, something tells me Bravo has made Teresa an offer she can’t refuse ;).

Teresa Giudice Pre-Prison Christmas Special Coming to Bravo: She Got Paid HOW MUCH?!

Even though the delusional reality star is still fighting her sentence, there’s officially no getting around it: Teresa Giudice will serve 15 months in prison beginning on January 5.

Teresa Giudice on The Real Housewives

Though you’d think they’d have enough drama in their lives, sources say the Giudices are arguing about how to spend their last Christmas together before they’re separated for several years.

(Joe Giudice will begin his 41 month sentence after Teresa completes hers.)

We’re not sure if the felonious couple have agreed on how to spend the holidays yet, but one thing’s for sure – it will be a lucrative affair for the entire family.

Teresa and Bravo have reportedly reached a deal for a Giudice family Christmas special that will pay the Real Housewife $250,000, with bonus checks being handed out to the rest of the family.

“Teresa had been very concerned about how she was going to pay for the extravagant gifts for their four daughters at Christmas,” says a source close to the Giudices. “This could be a way for her to say goodbye to her fans ahead of the prison sentence.”

Right…we’re sure saying goodbye to her fans is Teresa’s real motivation here.

Teresa is already one of the highest-paid Real Housewives, with Bravo insiders claiming Giudice’s salary reached $700,000 a year in recent seasons. 

Between that income and the cash from her pre-prison interviews, Teresa has nearly paid off her court-ordered restitution before even beginning her sentence. Jeez, almost seems like she didn’t need to commit all that fraud in the first place, right?

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online at TV Fanatic to see Teresa living high on the hog before it all came crashing down.

Kesha SLAMS Dr. Luke on Twitter: Abusive F–ker Didn’t Win!

Last week, Kesha filed a lawsuit against Dr. Luke, claiming that her former producer harassed and sexually assaulted her several times over a period of ten years.

Luke countersued Kesha, claiming that the accusations were part of an elaborate extortion plot coordinated by Kesha, her mother, and her new management team.

Now, Kesha’s attorneys have called the media’s attention to a series of tweets the singer posted early this year that seem to corroborate her claims of ongoing abuse:

  • Kesha Letter
  • Kesha, No Makeup

“These music business a-sholes (well, Dr. Luke) had almost successfully crushed my magic. But that f–ker didn’t win!” reads one tweet, posted while Kesha was in rehab receiving treatment for an eating disorder and emotional issues. She later added:

“I’m here working out some emotional trauma & abuse. There’s someone I work with that is SO abusive.”

Kesha’s lawyer, Mark Geragos, also issues a statement explaining why his client waited so long to file suit:

“She is not a very confrontational person,” Geragos says. “The efforts were always met with psychological warfare, predatory behavior, and things of that ilk.”

“She finally got to a place where she is surrounded by people that are supportive enough that she felt like she could finally do it. She just couldn’t go on this way.”

Luke had previously claimed that Kesha put off filing the papers so that she could blackmail him into letting her out of her contract with his record company.

Red, White, Blue... and Green!


Kesha has debuted a green hair color against the backdrop of the American flag. What do you think?

Monica Lewinsky Comes on Twitter, Gets Blown Away By Loads of Crude Jokes

Monica Lewinsky is back, and you know what that means: Lots of BJ jokes!

But when she’s not making fun of Bruce Jenner like the rest of us, Lewinksy is forced to endure endless gags (sorry) about the times she gave oral sex to a sitting US president.

Monica Lewinsky Photograph

While she’s kept out of the spotlight in the years since the Bill Clinton sex scandal, the mere mention of Lewinksy’s name brings to mind images of stained blue dresses and improperly placed cigars.

Beyonce name-dropped Lewinsky in “Partition” back in May. Just days prior, a controversial New York Post headline claiming that Lewinsky “sucks” went viral online.

Needless to say, it’s been a rocky return to public life for the 41-year-old former intern, and her social media debut yesterday didn’t go much smoother.

Seemingly all too aware of what was coming (again, sorry) Lewinsky sent out her first tweet, “#HereWeGo” early Monday morning.

Within minutes, Lewninsky’s page looked like the minutes from a meeting of late 90s late night comedy writers. Some samples:

“Hey I’m just here to drop some loads…of knowledge.”

“Can you recommend a good dry cleaner please?”

“Insert answer about ML not answering b/c of being too polite to talk with her mouth full.”

You get the point. Of course, Lewinsky’s reemergence into public life is part of her campaign to combat cyber bullying, so the reception she’s received on Twitter has only helped to prover her point.

Of course, many have pointed out that she’s one of very few Americans to have a presidential scandal named after, and she would have been the butt of jokes in whatever media was available at the time.

But the fact remains that the Internet in general and social media in particular provide a sort of stranger-to-victim access that never existed in previous generations, leaving all of us more vulnerable than ever before.

And certainly no one is more aware of that frightening truth than Monica Lewinsky.

Teresa Giudice Begs Judge For Placement In Connecticut Facility Over West Virginia

The Book Expo 2012 In New YorkDid you hear the rumors that Teresa Giudice was talking with new attorneys about possibly appealing her sentence? She made a comment about how she thought her attorneys would “fight for me,” so it sounds like she thought they should have done more. Maybe she blames them for getting prison time over house arrest or probation. Well, Teresa has retained new legal counsel, and her attorney has already sent a letter to the judge in an attempt to get placed at the federal prison in Danbury, Connecticut, which is close to New Jersey, over the federal prison on West Virginia. RELATED: Teresa Giudice is recording videos for her daughters while Joe pleads guilty to another crime.

According to Radar Online, Teresa’s attorney has sent a letter to the judge.

During Ms. Giudice’s sentencing, the Court expressed its intent to have Ms. Giudice serve her sentence in a camp environment. The sentencing transcripts reflect that Your Honor mentioned ‘Danbury and West Virginia.’ We acknowledge that at the time of sentencing, defense counsel did not ask for a specific designation.
“However, upon review of the judgment of conviction, and in discussions with a Bureau of Prisons expert, the language of the judgment as written will likely result in Ms. Giudice being designated to Metropolitan Detention Facility Brooklyn, or Metropolitan Correctional Facility Manhattan…both of which are administrative facilities that house females,” the letter continues. “This was clearly not the intention of the court when inquiring as to Danbury or West Virginia as a designation.
“Ms. Giudice’s offense and her Bureau of Prison classification will qualify her to be designated to a camp, however, the language of the judgment must reflect the same. At this time we respectfully request the Court to amend Ms. Giduice’s JOC to state ‘the Court strongly recommends a non-administrative facility placement, specifically, the FCI Danbury Satellite Camp to facilitate visitation with her young children; or if Danbury is full, we would ask for an alternative camp, specifically Alderson in West Virginia, for Ms. Giudice to serve her sentence.’”

Teresa reportedly opted against filing an appeal of her sentence, since it would have been rejected immediately, given that one of the conditions of the plea deal was that she would accept whatever sentence would be handed down. However, even this letter feels unnecessary. The judge doesn’t decide where Teresa will be placed (that’s up to the prison administrators and is based on availability at the time she has to surrender), and the Danbury facility is transitioning to a men-only prison, so it’s unlikely she would be sent there. It looks like she’s going to the mountains of West Virginia.
I can understand Teresa doing this, though. She must feel so helpless. I can’t even imagine…

Tori Spelling: Hospitalized, Quarantined Due to Mysterious Illness

Tori Spelling was rushed to an LA hospital over the weekend after displaying a wide array of worrisome symptoms.

Sources say Spelling was coughing uncontrollably and having difficulty breathing. She was reportedly running a high fever which caused hospital staff to quarantine the reality star.

As troubling as all that sounds, there are two important facts that make Tori’s make condition somewhat less dire:

1. Despite rumors to the contrary Tori is not pregnant, and 2. Tori does not have Ebola, which is something that her publicist actually felt the need to mention. 

Obviously, Tori is very sick, but insiders say it’s most likely a bad case of the flu. She’s expected to make a full recovery within the next week, and she was quarantined merely out of an “abundance of caution.”

Most likely, Tori will be released from the hospital later today, and she’ll probably have to respond to accusations that she made the whole thing up to drum up ratings for her reality show.

After all, there’s evidence to suggest Tori faked Dean McDermott’s affair with Emily Goodhand just to make her life more compelling to television audiences.

Also, back in April, Tori was accused of faking a hospital stay for the sake of her Lifetime series. Even so, we’re gonna give her the benefit of the doubt and assume that this time around she’s legitimately ill. 

In any event, we sincerely hope she’s not pretending, because faking a viral infection at a time when millions of Americans are terrified of an epidemic would be a new low that we never thought Tori capable of.

Tori and Dean share a touching moment. So much to say about these two.
