It seems Teresa Giudice's trip to prison may be more enjoyable than she thought!
According to a new report, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star might serve her 15-month sentence at Alderson Federal Prison Camp—the same posh prison Martha Stewart stayed at when she was busted for insider trading in 2004.
“Teresa’s advisors have told her that she will most likely go to Alderson because the other women’s federal prison in Connecticut—Danbury—is transitioning to housing men only,” a source said. “Danbury is much closer to Teresa’s family in nearby New Jersey, but the length of her prison sentence will probably rule it out.”
The minimum-security prison, which is often referred to as "Camp Cupcake," sits on 159 acres overlooking West Virginia's Greenbrier River, offers yoga and cooking classes and houses inmates in cottages instead of typical, communal dorms, the report states.
“Even though the prison is nicknamed Camp Cupcake, Teresa isn’t happy that she has to go,” the source added.

The sentence, however, won't be a total vacation as Teresa will be required to do manual labor while at Alderson, which could include helping with prison laundry, cooking in the kitchen, or picking up trash.
“Teresa refuses to even look at any of the material regarding Alderson,” the source said. "She is hoping she will get a last-minute reprieve, but that isn’t going to happen. The sooner Teresa accepts it, the better it will be for her.”
While serving her sentence in West Virginia means Teresa will be farther away from her husband,Joe Giudice, and their four young daughters, the amenities the prison provides may make the time she is serving for bank, mail, wire and bankruptcy fraud more bearable.
"Teresa has been told by her lawyers that Alderson would actually be a much better fit for her than anywhere else, as the prison doesn’t even have barbed wire around it, and it’s minimum security," the source said.
While it has not yet been released where Joe will be serving his 41-month sentence, his attorneys have reportedly requested he be sent to a facility where he could complete an alcohol abuse program.
