By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 04/19/2016
Teresa Giudice has confirmed she is releasing a second memoir and it won't be long until readers can get their hands on it.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey star, 43, has revealed there will be a sequel to her first memoir Turning the Tables: From Housewife to Inmate and Back Again, which hit shelves February 9.
"Yes, I am going to have a follow-up book to this one. It's coming out in June," Teresa told Reality TV World on Saturday following an appearance and Turning the Tables book signing event at Mohegan Sun casino in Connecticut.
"[It will document] from when I got released from jail to when [my husband Joe Giudice] went in," the mother of four explained.
Teresa was released from Danbury Federal Correctional Institution in Connecticut on December 23 after serving 11 months in prison. Because she was released earlier than her original 15-month sentence, Teresa spent a little over a month in house arrest.
During that time, she had to follow the rules under her parole officer and was unable to come and go as she pleased.
Joe later surrendered himself to Fort Dix in New Jersey on March 23 to serve his 41-month sentence for multiple counts of fraud.
Teresa told Reality TV World she hasn't learned much about Joe's experience behind bars yet.
"He just left so it hasn't been that long," the former The Celebrity Apprentice contestant noted.
Reports Teresa was planning to release a second memoir first surfaced in February.
"[It will] detail Teresa's life as a single mom as Joe goes to prison to begin serving his sentence," a source told RadarOnline. "[Publishers] Simon & Schuster wanted the second book because they believe Teresa's story couldn't just be done in one installment."
Teresa found writing "very healing," said the source. "It's good for her to put the thoughts down on paper."
Teresa additionally revealed the seventh season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey will premiere in the beginning of July. Fans were thrilled to hear the news since Season 6 wrapped more than a year ago, in November 2014.
