It’s only a matter of days until Teresa Giudice begins her prison sentence, but there are still some people close to her that are clueless about her being locked up — as it’s been revealed she lied to her own daughters about why she’s really headed to the slammer come Jan. 5!
According to a source close to the ‘Real Housewives of New Jersey’ star, 42, her two oldest daughters (13-year-old Gia and 10-year-old Gabriella) are completely aware of their mom’s 15-month sentence and why she’s serving it, while her two younger girls (eight-year-old Milania and four-year-old Audrianna) are “in the dark” about the true cause of her extended trip away from home.

“Teresa and Joe feel that they are too young to fully comprehend what is going on,” the insider explains. “Teresa and Joe are telling the girls that she is going away to work.”
We know, we know: There aren’t a lot of year-long business trips involved with being a Real Housewife, or a hair guru or a beverage connoisseur — or any of the jobs Tre claims to do.

Instead they gave her a new job: Serious investigative journalist/author — and told the girls she was doing “research” at the prison.
“She told them she is going to jail to work on a book about jail,” the source tells Radar.
Hmmm. We wonder if this is the same kind of “research” Farrah Abraham has been doing at a Texas strip club?
