It’s no Sephora, but it ain’t that bad! Teresa Giudice actually has a plethora of beauty products available to her while she serves her 15-month sentence in prison this year and next. Us Weekly has obtained a copy of Danbury Connecticut’s Federal Correctional Institution’s commissary list, and the Real Housewives of New Jersey star might be able to exit the prison camera-ready.
So how does a convict keep up her beauty regimen? First off, Giudice, 42, will have to either work for money or have her family mail her cash. According to her lawyer, James J. Leonard Jr., the Bravolebrity entered the facility with $200 to start her commissary account.
With her cash, the mom of four can buy everything from tweezers ($1.15), Clairol hair dye ($9.45), Charmin toilet paper ($4.20/four-pack), lip gloss ($3.00), and choose between a soft or hard toothbrush for $0.95. Even better? Giudice has multiple options for shampoo, conditioner, and lotion. The brunette could splurge on the priciest shampoo, Dr. Miracles for $8.60, or settle for the $2.25 Suave Green Apple option.
As for lotion, she can choose between Tone Coco Butter ($2.90), Jergens ($4.55), Nivea ($7.35), St. Ives Shea Butter ($7.10) or even Palmers Coco Butter for $5.15.
The table-flipper is also allowed to purchase items like hair curlers ($1.50), pumice stones ($1.90) and a three-pack of head bands for $3.90.
According to a list obtained by TMZ, Joe Giudice’s wife also has options when it comes to snacks. Edibles on the menu to buy includes hummus and macaroons, albacore tuna, cilantro cubes, Oreos, Dove bars, and wild berry frozen yogurt.
Giudice’s attorney told Us the New York Times bestselling cookbook author is hoping she will be able to work in the kitchen at the prison. “We spoke about things in general on the car ride [to the facility] — how things work in prison, about working and what job she can get. She was hoping they’d let her work in the kitchen,” Leonard Jr. told Us.
Upon arrival on Monday, Jan. 5, Leonard Jr. told Us that Giudice was ready to go and had her “game face on.” “She brought $200, some legal paperwork and a list of telephone numbers and email addresses. She can have pictures of the family, but those have to be mailed to the facility,” he added.
