On Sunday's emotional episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey: Teresa Checks In
, Teresa Giudice
detailed her experience of getting "shaken down" in prison.
"I got shaken down," Teresa said. "Like our room got shaken down, I guess they were looking for a cell phone or something."
It all started when Teresa asked her daughter Gia to tweet for her. Apparently, Prison guards believed the tweet actually came from Teresa while behind bars, and they were determined to find the phone she used.
"They're so invading!" Teresa recounted. "Like you have to bend down and cough."
The one thing Teresa seemed most concerned about was her daughter feeling guilty about the incident.
"I don't want her to think she did anything wrong," Teresa said. "She didn't do anything wrong, she did what I told her. I asked her to do it."
"I never thought my wife would be getting a shakedown," Joe said. "That definitely makes me upset thinking my poor wife has to go through this bulls**t in there."
Teresa, who has been serving time for fraud,
is set to be released in December. After Teresa's exit from prison, Joe is to begin his 41-month prison sentence. The couple took a plea that would allow them to serve time separately so that one of them would be able to care for their children.
