Teresa's Husband Joe ‘Juicy’ Giudice says Prison Will Be ‘No Big Deal,’ Looks Forward to Sobriety

There will be no jailhouse hooch on tap for Joe "Juicy" Giudice.

The "Real Housewives of New Jersey" star, who begins his 41-month prison sentence Wednesday at the Federal Correction Institution in Fort Dix, is looking at it like rehab.

"I am not going to be able to drink for a while which is good because I don't even know when it's been since I haven't had a drink," he told People.

The 43-year-old said he started drinking up to two bottles of wine a day after his wife Teresa left to serve her 14-month sentence in Danbury, Conn.

She was released in December.

The couple pleaded guilty in 2014 to bankruptcy fraud and conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud.

They were sentenced to consecutive prison terms so one parent could reside at their North Jersey home with daughters, Gia, 15, Gabriella, 11, Milania, 10, and Audriana, 6.

Unlike his wife, who compared her prison sentence to "hell," he seems unfazed.

"It's not a big deal," he told People. "They tell me that the low security and the camp there are almost the same so it's no big deal."
