DANBURY, Conn. -- Teresa Giudice, star of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey," has taken up a job working in the kitchen at the Federal Correctional Institution at Danbury, according to the New York Daily News.
Giudice, 42, is reportedly using whatever ingredients she can find in an effort to conjure up some of her favorite Italian dishes, the Daily News reported.
In addition to her kitchen duties, the reality television star is reportedly part of a television watching club, the Daily News said.
Giudice and her husband pleaded guilty to bankruptcy fraud and conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud last year in a multimillion-dollar mortgage and bankruptcy case. She began serving a 15-month sentence in Danbury in January.
The Federal Correctional Institution at Danbury was originally made famous by the best-selling book and Netflix series "Orange is the New Black."
Now, the prison says it is inundated with fan mail addressed to Giudice, according to the Daily News.
