Sitting alone in a prison cell day after day has led Teresa Giudice to an epiphany: She has had it with her job and her marriage — and she wants out of both!
“Teresa doesn’t want to be part of the Housewives franchise anymore, because she’s tired of the drama and believes that putting her life under the microscope of the show is the reason she is in prison today,” a friend of the Real Housewives of New Jersey star tells Star.
To that end, she has now enlisted the help of a fellow Housewife, RHOA‘s NeNe Leakes, to help her escape. “Teresa speaks to NeNe all the time,” the pal adds. “They are close. NeNe told her she needed a good attorney to get her out of her contract with Bravo.” NeNe may also be lawyering up for the same reason, now that she has reportedly signed on to do a new show with the Oxygen network.
As soon as the contract issue is resolved, Teresa’s lawyer will be focused on the divorce papers. Joe Giudice has been plagued by rumors that he has been unfaithful while his wife is behind bars, and he recently missed a prison visit — which reportedly had Teresa fuming.
“She has had it with his cheating,” the source says. “And she finally realizes that it’s affecting her girls. Joe will be going to prison for four years, and Teresa wants to start a new life without him.”
