Not everything about being behind bars is bad for Teresa Giudice, because according to her attorney, she’s using this time to become a better, stronger person.
“She’s taking care of her body, she’s taking care of her mind,” the former Real Housewives of New Jersey star’s attorney, James J. Leonard, told E! News. “She’s making [sure] her family’s looked after. She’s reprioritizing things in her life.“
Giudice is currently serving time for fraud at the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, Connecticut, and when she re-emerges into society, she will apparently be much more focused.
“I think she’s going to emerge stronger, more focused,” Leonard told the publication. “She’s getting back in touch with her faith. She’s spending a lot of time praying in there, and I think the Teresa that comes out of prison is going to wow people.”
So, what are these big changes Giudice intends to make in her life that will reportedly “wow” people?
“Being with her children, being with her family, being with Joe… and then kind of getting back into whatever she’s going to get back into,” Leonard explained. “If that’s television, if it’s different projects, if it’s getting involved with a restaurant, etc. — there are so many opportunities that she has.”
He continued, “I think she’s going to take it one day at a time, but her focus is, ‘I want to get back to my freedom, I want to get back to my husband, I want to get back to my parents, my children, and then kind of take it as it goes.’ But I expect that you’ll be seeing her shortly after she comes home.”
We’re pleased to hear that Giudice is focusing on what is important in her life and reprioritizing. But it’s not just mental changes that she’s going through, because she’s reportedly trying to get into great physical shape too.
She’s reportedly been doing Pilates, yoga and running on the prison’s outdoor track, as well as eating “clean.”
“To see her, she looks extremely lean and fit. I can tell that is helping her mentally deal with it,” Leonard said.
