Teresa Giudice, star of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, has seen it all but nothing could compare to the media firestorm that ensued after she was convicted on federal fraud charges—and sentenced to fifteen months in prison. What was a skinny Italian to do? Keep a diary, of course…
In her very first tell-all memoir, Teresa comes clean on all things Giudice: growing up as an Italian-American, starting a family, dealing with chaos on national television, and coming to terms with the reality of life in prison. Featuring scans from her coveted prison diary, Turning the Tables captures some of the most memorable moments of her stay, including the fights she witnessed, the awkward conundrum of being trapped when a fellow inmate had a…guest…over, and the strength she found while confined between four concrete walls.
Now with an exclusive bonus chapter, Teresa reflects on the days following her December 2015 release, and the heart-wrenching weeks leading up to the night she had to say good-bye to her husband, Joe…who has left to serve his own prison sentence.
Even at her lowest of lows, Teresa was able to live la bella vita by staying positive and realizing her purpose. Friends, foes, and fans have speculated about Teresa’s life off-camera, but nothing will prepare you for the revelations she makes in this entertaining and ultimately heartwarming memoir.
It is a good book, not the audio version
Once you get used to the very slow reading and pausing you get to enjoy the story. It feels like been part of it since we all have been able to watch her life on TV.
Turning the Tables
I wish I would have listened to the preview. Terribly read. She is so monotone and doesn't even sound like herself. I couldn't finish. So disappointing.
Really bad... The book may be good, but if you want to listen to the most annoying monotone voice ever, download the audiobook version! I should have listened to a sample first! Sounds like she had way too much coaching in slowing down and pausing when reading it. So bad!! I only got thru maybe 5 minutes.
