Prison Tales: Teresa Giudice Faces Detox Drama with Convicted Drug Dealer Cellmate

Teresa Giudice is close to hitting the two week mark at her new address, a federal prison in Danbury, Connecticut. She should be settled in quite nicely by now, right? A new report is claiming that the adjustment has likely been far from a smooth one, and that Teresa’s alleged reliance on prescription drugs has probably kicked in some pretty rough detox symptoms.

According to Radar’s source, Teresa was a regular user of Valium and Xanax, and utilized several medical professionals to keep her several pill a day habit going. All About the Tea earlier reported that Teresa was also supposedly on some sort of substance during the last ‘Housewives’ reunion taping. The withdrawal symptoms are nothing to be taken lightly, and according to the insider, may become severe.

“It’s going to be a [major] detox,” the source said of the process to get clean, which could last as long as two weeks. “I warned her about that. It’s going to be hell. It’s a cold withdrawal,” the source continued. “You just detox. It’s a really brutal withdrawal. She’ll get sick. She will get diarrhea. She’ll have actual DTs [delirium tremens, also known as “the shakes”].”

Ironically, that site is also reporting that one of Teresa’s cellmate is a convicted drug dealer. Prisons are full of those after all, so that little tidbit is hardly surprising…but it does present an interesting visual to picture a drug dealer holding back the hair of someone vomiting from withdrawal!

According to the prison insider, Teresa is sharing a cell with three other women, in cramped quarters, with a metal bed and a locker being all she can call hers in a dorm type unit, “on top of a hill”. The source also claims that the ex-reality star is getting along fine with the other women, and is seeking to fly under the radar.

“She hides out in the chapel a lot praying,” the insider adds that Giudice “is staying somewhat low-key so far.”

Flying under the radar is certainly a new way of life for this reality felon. Could two weeks gone by bring a physically renewed Teresa? Will all of the hiding out in the chapel trigger some spiritual change? Only time will tell.

    Oh Lawd, is she going to have a religious revelation? Can a “good Catholic girl” get any better without becoming a nun?

    • Rochelle Barozzi

      They always turn to religion in prison don’t they?

  • Trippinhhard

    The drug dealer roomie might be a plus to her, she can get Teresa’s drugs for her.. JS

  • Anne Green

    Hummm……I wonder what the inmates will pick for Teresa’s prison moniker……

    Just you wait, we are going to hear some major stories coming from that prison.

    • twifan2

      I’ll be holding you to that, BuckJohnson!
      It’s going to be an interesting Spring, Summer-imo.

  • She Stinks!

    Again, too bad. No sympathy whatsoever.

  • Saw this coming a mile away! It was evident she was on something at the reunion. Must have been an eye opener for the Trehuggers to know their queen is not as strong as they thought.

  • Bad Barbie

    These stories… LMAOOO

  • WestCoastFeed

    When he was at one of his book signings, Andy Cohen said that Tre and Juicy were the most medicated cast members at any reunion he had hosted. He also said, “understandably.”

  • TartLemon

    Teresa never minded all the negative attention because it was, after all, ATTENTION. She thrives on it. These continued articles and items are keeping her relevant enough to come out of prison with a following still. Perhaps enough to give her a reality show of some kind. The ‘businesses’ keeping Juicy afloat right now are HIS. What’s she going to do when he’s not around to (*wink wink*) go to work collecting the phantom rent?

  • Dave

    I wonder if her drug dealing cellie is helping her detox or keeping her medicated and happy.

  • Ravello

    She did seem medicated at the reunion but this is hardly surprising. Her volatile personality is well known and her legal team had to be concerned about big outbursts. I would need meds if I were walking in her shoes, especially on the day of their sentencing. I remember OJ’s legal team made sure he was chemically docile while in court. My guess is she had valid prescriptions for the meds, at least for a while.
    One thing I know for sure, her celebrity is HUGE, off the charts. Every time I look at radar and other sites there is another Teresa story, I’m sure Andy Cohen is salivating to sign her up after prison,

    • I1ST5XS

      You do realize that Joe, Teresa or someone her camp is behind all these ridiculous stories that appear everyday, right?

    • misstc

      Andy would be a complete moron to put Tre back on a pedestal after her prison stint-shows he has no moral compass, but hey, anything for a buck. The real test will be if the viewers will bite, and seeing how hungry people are for this kind of shyte, I’m sure she will be back & possibly bigger than ever.

  • Juliana

    Hello Ladies and Gentlemen ! It’s going to be a really long stretch if she’s spending her free time in that chapel. I imagine the prison will give her medications if she has a valid prescription for them. But I’ve heard the worst detox is xanax not even close to heroin withdrawal.

    So she’s not having fun in that place and anyone saying she is is lying like a rug. Her life is miserable right now just as it should be.

    • TopGear

      I heard Xanax withdrawal was bad but had no idea it was worse than heroin. This is going to be a rough journey for her.

  • coinkydinkywinky

    I don’t understand why Joe was offered rehab a year and a half in the future, presumably to continue his alcoholism and drug use while raising the four girls, but Teresa goes in and has to detox cold turkey. Prescription drug detox is not something to take lightly, it’s possible to die from side affects like seizures. If anything, Teresa should be the one in a rehab program while she detoxes for her own safety. I do believe that Teresa has been heavily medicated over the last couple of years, all you have to do is look at her heavy-lidded glazed over eyes and delayed reactions to see it.

  • cait

    Think this story is BOLLIX !

  • Rochelle Barozzi

    I read somewhere that one of her cellmates is a relative of Big Anges. Don’t ask me who, I refuse to watch that show.

  • snowybeach

    Where do you get this crap from? Please…let us all know! Moron.

      Did you Not see the article from radar posted on 1-11-15?
      So, who’s the moron now?

      • snowybeach
