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.

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 in Danbury over the past few months. On Friday, October 3, singer Lauryn Hill was released from the facility.
