Teresa Giudice has the worst luck when it comes to sustaining friendships.
Teresa’s crisis counselor/manager, Wendy Feldman, has quit. Feldman, has been guiding Teresa through her legal issues and even attended her court date, when she was sentenced to prison. Feldman announce that she ended her contract with her via Twitter, and released an official statement to Us Weekly.
Why did she make this decision? Well, Feldman was outraged at Teresa for filing a request to serve her sentence at Danbury Federal Prison in Connecticut without consulting her. Yes, that is the same prison which inspired the popular Netflix series Orange Is the New Black. Feldman stated:
“Sadly, my time with Teresa and has come to an end. My client relationships are very important to me, however today’s filing regarding Teresa’s Bureau of Prisons designation request was not done with my knowledge or input. I am not the consultant referred to in filing. This is clearly not the first time my advice has not been followed, but this is the time where the stakes are the highest. Both for my clients and myself, I work hard to maintain a strong relationship with the Bureau of Prisons. As I’ve tried to instruct Teresa, this is a process that must be respected. A designation to a camp is a gift, not a requirement from the BOP and the judge. By making this request, Teresa has jeopardized months of work, months of preparation and in fact may jeopardize where she is ultimately designated or sent to. My ultimate responsibility is to all of my clients, not just to Teresa. I’m hopeful that, at some point, a change occurs and rehabilitation begins. My thought and wishes will always be with her children. I’m well-known for investing my heart and soul into my clients and today’s decision didn’t come lightly or without prior events leading up to this.”
I don’t know when Teresa will get a clue, and realize this isn’t a tv show or dream. This is real life! She’s going to prison not the Bahamas. What kind of woman and mother is more concerned about staying at a certain prison because it’s part of a popular Netflix show, instead of worrying about how this is affecting her children and their lives? Not to mention that what is portrayed in a scripted series is not a duplicate of what really happens behind bars. Their’s no director to yell “cut” when an inmate or guard attacks someone, however, she may very well meet a few “Crazy Eyes” and “Big Boo” in there, if you catch my drift. For her sake I hope she will do her time in solitary confinement, because as I stated above, she has the worst luck when it comes to making friends.
I thought the ditsy, self-centered image Teresa portrayed on Bravo’s TV series Real Housewives of New Jersey was just for show, but I can see it is very real.
