Publisher's Summary

The star of The Real Housewives of New Jersey and three-time New York Times best-selling author offers a behind-the-scenes look at life in prison, her marriage, her rise to fame, the importance of her family, and the reality TV franchise that made her a household name in her explosive and ultimately uplifting first-ever memoir.
"People think they know everything about me...but they don't. Not even close."
Teresa Giudice, star of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, has seen it all, but nothing - not even Real Housewives scandals - could compare to the media firestorm that ensued after she was convicted on federal fraud charges.
The infamous, fun-loving Jersey mom of four was sentenced to 15 months in the same prison where Piper Kerman - the real-life inspiration behind Orange Is the New Black - did her time. Her tiny prison cubicle in Connecticut felt so far removed from the glamorous world portrayed on The Real Housewives of New Jersey. What was a skinny Italian to do? Keep a diary, of course...
In her very first tell-all memoir, Teresa comes clean on all things Giudice: growing up as an Italian American, meeting the love of her life and starting a family, dealing with chaos and catfights on national television, and eventually coming to terms with the reality of life in prison. Turning the Tables captures some of the most memorable moments of her prison stay, including the cringe-inducing fistfights 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.
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 prison experience, but nothing will prepare you for the revelations she makes in this entertaining and heartwarming memoir.
"The world will see a new Teresa. A different Teresa. Well, actually, the Teresa I always was."

Horrible narration

I enjoyed the book .. But holy cow the way she read the book was like listening to a 1st grader learning to read. Didn't she get any coaching?? Buy the written book instead of her reading it !!! I'm baffled at this narration !!!

Oh my, horrible narration!

This was actually painful to listen to! I'm a huge fan of Audible, with more than 200 books in my Audible library, so I am familiar with the wide variety of styles among narrators, and I generally enjoy that diversity. This narrator puts so many unnecessary pauses in every sentence - she pauses, awkwardly, every 2-5 words. And the enunciation - holy cow - what a mess! Don't waste a credit. Buy the written version instead. I wish I had.
