Prison is a trail of tears for Teresa Giudice. "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" star has been keeping a journal since she reported to prison earlier this year, and she is set to release her writings in a book.

Her time in the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, Connecticut obviously isn't exactly evoking happiness.

"She will tell the story everyone is dying to know: what life is like behind bars," her attorney James L Leonard Jr. said.

Us Weekly actually shared an excerpt from the journal, in which Teresa writes about how emotional she gets being locked up. The first entry of her journal comes from January where she wrote about watching the movie "Jersey Boys."

"I was crying and have been very emotional for the rest of the night," she wrote, adding that she often cries about her four children Gia, 14, Gabriella, 10, Milania, 9, and Audriana, 5.

Teresa, who is serving a 15-month sentence for fraud, said she broke down when her youngest daughter asked her if she could move into jail with her. She again broke down when Milania asked her if she would be home for her birthday on Feb. 2.

"I miss them so much," she said of her kids. "They are all I think about all day long and I pray that God helps me go back home to be with my daughters and my husband."

Teresa won't have much time to bond with her husband when she is released, as he is set to begin a 41-month prison sentence once his wife is out.

Until then, Teresa will try to make things as normal as possible behind bars, much like her day on Feb. 27.

"Woke up at 6:15, went to breakfast at 6:30, had French toast and oatmeal," she said. "Checked emails, drank my coffee and watched the news. Did yoga at 8:30 till 9:10. At 12:00 to 1:00 they had Black History Show. They had Spanish dancers and rappers and talking about black history."

Someone handed out a questionnaire of some sort about black history, she added. "Whoever answered those questions right gets a Hershey's candy bar or a pack of tuna."

Us Weekly also revealed that Teresa will be back on "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" next season and her exit from jail. The reality star is scheduled to be released just before Christmas, but she will remain under home confinement until early February.

"[Film crews] will capture her homecoming on TV," the magazine said.

For Teresa, the pen is mightier than the penitentiary!
