Explaining that her cell became known as the “Boom Boom Room,” Teresa Giudice explains in a People magazine interview that she remained quite mellow about the actions of her cell mates.
“I’m pretty laid-back, pretty cool, and if that’s what you want to do to make your time go by, then I’m not going to mess that up for you,” she says. “But I don’t need to watch. They didn’t make it a secret, so I just put a blanket over my head.”

In her book, which goes on sale today–Tuesday, February 9–Teresa Giudice details the moment she realized what was happening in her prison cell.
“One night, I looked over and I saw the girls in bed together. What’s the saying? There was no shame in their game!” she writes. “They were hanging out and then when the lights went out, they got busy.”

Giudice says two pairs of women regularly had sex in the “Boom Boom Room,” until a new cell mate moved in.
“When another girl arrived in our room, it all stopped because she wasn’t having it,” Teresa Giudice explains.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star was incarcerated for 15 months at the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, Connecticut–the same facility that inspired the HBO series Orange is the New Black. She was sentenced after pleading guilty to bankruptcy fraud and conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud.
Teresa Giudice’s husband Joe will begin serving a 41-month sentence for the fraud charges, and a concurrent 12 months for failing to file a federal tax return in 2004, next month. He is likely to face deportation following his time in prison, because he is not a U.S. citizen.
Teresa Giudice said previously she and their four daughters will relocate along with Joe if he is deported.
