Here are, according to People, the juiciest bits of her strange prison diary:
• Teresa, 43, had to squat and cough during her first strip search at the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, Connecticut. “I have never felt more vulnerable in my life,” she said of the experience.
• Feminine products had many uses in prison. Inmates used maxi-pads for everything from facemasks to makeup removers, slippers and cleaning rags. “I laughed the first time I wiped down the floor and my locker with a maxi pad. I couldn’t help but think, if only everyone could see me now.” But the one that surprised the reality star the most? A prison-style sex toy made with a maxi-pad a toothbrush and a rubber glove. “I never cared to use anything like that, but I have to say, the women in there are so creative.”
• Teresa witnessed nightly sex sessions and hookups between her roommates. “The ladies were getting it on so much that our room became known as the Boom Boom Room,” she said.
• She worked out three times a day, lost 8 lbs. and went down two to three sizes. Teresa did everything from running on the track to lifting weights and exercise classes, but she became most passionate about yoga: “It got me though this whole ordeal, and I can’t live without it now.”
Do you think her prison stint seems hard?
