She has only served a few weeks of her prison sentence for fraud charges, but it sounds like Teresa Giudice, 42, might already be changing for the better.
The 'Real Housewives of New Jersey' star has reportedly drawn so much media attention to the prison, she feels the need to "constantly apologize" to the staff and fellow inmates.
"Teresa knows that her being at the prison has made their jobs a bit more trying because of all the attention," a source told 'Radar.' "There is nothing Teresa can do about that, and just wants to be treated like all of the others.”

But unfortunately, she hasn't been treated like the others. The reality star has allegedly received special treatment which has gotten her on the bad side of several inmates.
“They don’t like her," a source tells 'In Touch.' "She’ll get a job in the kitchen when other inmates were told there were no openings, she gets to eat before the main line at lunch and dinner and her kids were approved for visits the day she arrived."
Clearly Teresa knows more than anyone how to deal with catty women -- and despite her issues, she's surprisingly managed to make a bunch of new friends. Sources confirm the reality star spends a lot of time with her five roommates and they've been getting along great.
“She was dancing with them the other day and asked them to teach her how to twerk. They thought it was funny.”
Not all of the inmates are Bravo fans, though. Some have been giving her a hard time -- they even mock her celebrity status by calling her "Princess Teresa."
