Look who’s pokey pen pals?
Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen tells EW that he remains in touch with Teresa Giudice, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star who was sentenced to 15 months in prison after she and her husband Joe pleaded guilty to charges of bank, mail, wire and bankruptcy fraud.
“She seems like she is okay,” Cohen tells EW. “She definitely has not lost her sense of humor which I really admire. She’s really funny in her emails.” When asked how he corresponds with Giudice, Cohen explains, “There’s a special prison [email] system. She has to request you. You get a request saying, ‘There is a prisoner requesting that you join up to this system.’ Then you have to fill out all this stuff, your social security, all this information. Then you get approved by the system and then once you’re approved, you have to log on and then you can email this person.”
Cohen also says if Giudice wanted a visitor, “I would be happy to go see her.”
In the meantime, a Bravo spokesman for Real Housewives declined to comment on a report claiming that Giudice will return to the show once her sentence ends. The cast for the upcoming seventh season is still being worked out, EW has learned.
Giudice is also reportedly writing a memoir about her time in the big house.
