Featuring scans from her coveted prison diary, Turning the Tables captures some of the most memorable moments of her stay, including the fights she witnessed, the awkward conundrum of being trapped when a fellow inmate had a…guest…over, and the strength she found while confined between four concrete walls.
Now with an exclusive bonus chapter, Teresa reflects on the days following her December 2015 release, and the heart-wrenching weeks leading up to the night she had to say good-bye to her husband, Joe…who has left to serve his own prison sentence.
Even at her lowest of lows, Teresa was able to live la bella vita by staying positive and realizing her purpose. Friends, foes, and fans have speculated about Teresa’s life off-camera, but nothing will prepare you for the revelations she makes in this entertaining and ultimately heartwarming memoir.
Eat Spaghetti and Still Fit Into Your Skinny Jeans.To many of us, “diet” is a four-letter word. And rightfully so. Starving yourself thin or keeping track of each bite like pennies in your checkbook is no way to live. So what’s a girl with skinny jean dreams supposed to do?
Teresa Giudice has the answer. In fact, she was born with it. The first-generation Italian-American mom of four and svelte star of The Real Housewives of New Jersey credits her knockout figure to her Old World upbringing. And now, in her fun, encouraging, and budget-friendly cookbook, she skewers the myth that looking fabulous has to be a chore.
As the breakout star of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Teresa Giudice has quickly become a household name–and a New York Times bestselling author. Her first book, Skinny Italian, showcased the health benefits of Old World Italian cuisine.
Now she returns with 60 more flavorful family recipes straight from Salerno–with an emphasis on preparing, serving, and eating meals with the ones you love. Teresa shares her simple, inexpensive, and “fabulicious” dishes, including:
Secret family recipes: Featuring her Mama’s meatballs and her mother-in-law’s Ti Amo Tiramisu, the dessert that loves you back.
In this latest book, Teresa provides a detailed program for how she keeps her voluptuous, sexy figure after four kids (and as she approaches 40).
The more than 60 recipes in Fabulicious!: Fast & Fit emphasize “skinny”: including lessons on playing up veggies and grilled meats, cooking low-calorie Italian favorites, and rules for the five things you MUST cut out (and what to replace them with).
But Teresa isn’t about deprivation. She loves food — especially pasta and Tiramisu! Teresa proves that you CAN have your skinny jeans and spaghetti too. She tells you exactly how to live La Bella Vita- the “skinny” way.
This next cookbook features Teresa’s signature easy, no-fuss Italian cooking — but this time with 70 recipes you can make on the grill, including:
Foolproof sauces, rubs, and marinades
Hearty red meat & chicken recipes
Low-fat veggie grilling

In her second memoir, Teresa chronicles her life since her release from prison and what it’s been like to weather difficult times as a single mother.
Though she recounts the happy memories she has experienced, she also touches upon some of the darkest times of her life, including her parents’ hospitalizations for severe medical issues in late 2016, which led to the tragic passing of her mother in 2017.
With unparalleled honesty and courage, Teresa opens up in Standing Strong in ways she never has before, showing her fans what it truly means to be a survivor.
