Teresa Giudice has put on 40lbs in jail

Teresa Giudice has put on 40lbs in jail.

Jailed “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star Teresa Giudice was recently moved to tears by Pope Francis’ visit here to the U.S – but whats really making her cry is her weight gain.

“She thinks she has put on 40lbs since going to jail,” a pal tells NAUGHTY GOSSIP. “She wants to lose the weight so she looks amazing when she leaves and does her first big TV interview.”

Later this month, Giudice is slated to star in her family’s spin off from the Bravo network’s original reality show. “The Real Housewives of New Jersey: Teresa Checks In” is slated to be a three-part series focusing on husband Joe’s struggles to keep his family of four young daughters together while his wife is away.

Teresa will be featured in the series through jailhouse phone calls with family members. She has also already signed to rejoin the cast of “RHONJ” once she is released from prison sometime around Christmas…. that is when she is hoping to look like her old self again!
