Teresa Giudice’s Cellmates Had So Much Sex in Her Prison Cell That It Was Nicknamed the ‘Boom Boom Room’

Even in prison, people have the sense of humor of fifth graders, apparently. According to the New York Daily News — which obtained a copy of Real Housewives star Teresa Giudice’s recent memoir, Turning the Tables: From Housewife to Inmate and Back Again, about her 15-month stint in prison for bankruptcy fraud and conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud — there was so much sex in Giudice’s prison cell, which she shared with four other women, that it got the nickname of the “Boom Boom Room” (Meatpacking is so over; Danbury Correctional is clearly where it’s at). Giudice also discovered that a number of her fellow inmates went “gay for stay” during their time behind bars. She witnessed her prison hookup on her second night in the cell: “I could see two women … writhing around … I cannot believe this is happening!” Though this all sounds like an episode of Orange Is the New Black, Giudice does not mention an incident where she was served a tampon sandwich by an angry Russian woman with a heartbreaking backstory.

Though she was given the nickname “Hollywood” at first, Giudice eventually adapted prison life, getting her inmates to do her nails and tailor her jailhouse gear. She bought $5.20 sunglasses at the commissary (a far cry from her Tom Fords, but we all make sacrifices), read constantly (after reading The Secret, she made a vision board that included her goal of making $40 million to “take care of my girls and help needy children”), and worked out for six hours a day. Giudice was released from prison on December 23. Her husband, Joe Giudice, is set to start a 41-month prison term in six months.
