index," new details about reality star Teresa Guidice's life behind bars, the "Real housewife" serving a 15-month jail sentence for fraud and her husband Joe speaking out for the first time about what her life is really like. This is Teresa Guidice's new reality, a family photo in a prison visiting room as seen on the cover of "Us weekly" the new Jersey housewife now a Connecticut inmate. I'm a Jersey girl. No one can knock me down. Reporter: Instead of a multimillion dollar home and lavish spending Teresa wakes up every morning in a cubicle she shares with five others here at the federal correctional institute in Danbury, Connecticut, the real-life inspiration for "Orange is the new black." Her husband Joe speaking out about what life is like for his wife behind bars. I guess she has a little job in the kitchen doing something, basically works out, eats, watches television, read, goes to church. Got a little busy schedule. That routine includes trying to keep up with her formerly glamorous life. She had them waiting for an hour while she was finishing her hair and makeup. Every time they visit she does her hair and makeup Jersey girl to a tee either although she's seen smiling with her girls on her lap the reality star talked to me last year about her fears. What's the hardest part? My kids going through this every day. It's a lot of pressure when you're making your kids trying to feel safe. How do you do it? I just can't be upset and curl up in a ball and just go in a room and lock the door. When the door is shut and they are in bed, do you get to do that? Yes and I do do that. I mean, I would be lying to say that's not happening. "Extra" TV showing us Joe is left to play Mr. Mom although Teresa is still very much a daily part of the family. We talk every day. She e-mails me basically telling me what to do, you know, pretty much sets my schedule. Reporter: Teresa has only served three months of a 15-month sentence. Despite the smiles, the future is still unclear for this family and the weekly visits can take their toll. You know, what Joe actually told me the toughest part about this whole thing every time they drive up to the prison and have to say good-bye at 3:00 that's really the toughest point. Joe said he actually cries harder than the girls do on the car ride home. But it is so tough on those girls in that family and we wish them well. I hope those girls are doing just fine.
