It looks like Teresa Giudice has figured out how to maneuver in prison.
Hubby Joe Giudice sat down for an exclusive interview with E! News recently, and give us a little overview of what it's like behind bars for The Real Housewives of New Jersey star—and it seems like things are going well.
"She keeps a positive attitude and that's how you gotta be," he tells us. "New people coming in, people leaving, so you're always meeting people. Just because they're in there doesn't mean they're bad people."

And Giudice is making some new friends while being away, too.
"She's got a little group of friends there. They're nice. Everybody's nice," Joe mentions. "They have all that talk in there, I don't know what you wanna call it—jail talk? She learns certain words and I'm like, ‘Really Tre?'"
When asked what kind of "jail talk" his wife shared with him, Joe simply said, "It's hard to remember all that stuff," but did explain that, "they trade what they get in the commissary. So, let's say somebody does your hair, you give them a pretzel. I don't know. Or nail polish remover, whatever you order from the commissary. But that's how they do things in there. There's no money exchange in there."
Sounds like a real-life Orange Is the New Black situation!
While Teresa's release in December is a joyous occasion, it's also a reminder that Joe will be going behind bars, too. Does he have any fears about going to prison? Watch the clip to find out.
