Not only is the mom of four, star of Bravo's The Real Housewives of New Jersey
, headed to jail, she was also recently dropped by her crisis manager Wendy Feldman after she allegedly repeatedly refused to take her advice. Today ET's Kevin Frazier sat down with Wendy to get the scoop on the reality star's unraveling.
Wendy told Kevin that the last straw for her was when Teresa wrote a letter behind her back asking to serve at a Danbury, Connecticut prison that served as inspiration for the Netflix hit Orange Is the New Black
. Teresa asked for the assignment in order to be close to her children, but according to Wendy, the prison couldn't possibly accept the reality star because it's transitioning into a male facility.
"If you call Danbury and speak to their warden, they are not accepting women who have more than six months on a sentence," said Wendy.
Teresa was sentenced to 15 months for bank fraud, while her husband Joe was ordered to serve 41 months.
Another bone of contention from Feldman's perspective was when claims were made that the couple wasn't paid for their Watch What Happens Live interview, despite evidence presented in open court proving that the Giudice's were paid $150,000 in advance for the appearance.
And what about rumors of a Christmas special possibly in the works?
"That is something that I'm not aware of," said Wendy. "I'm sure [the network] would like her to, but I don't know."
In addition to Teresa, Wendy has also worked with such high-profile clients as Chris Brown and Justin Bieber, but she says Teresa's situation was the hardest one for her to deal with.
"Teresa and her circumstances are the most difficult," said Wendy. "I inherited a mess."
