Teresa Giudice’s Publicist Spent Time In Prison For $4.1 Million Fraud Scheme

Teresa

Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice is facing up to 50 years in prison, but RadarOnline is reporting that Teresa’s BFF and publicist Wendy Feldman, has served time in federal prison for her own $4.1 million fraud scheme. Feldman, a former registered trader, was barred from the securities industry and sentenced to 27 months in federal prison in 2006, after the SEC uncovered an extensive Ponzi-like scheme she’d been running for years.

After pleading guilty to three counts of fraud, Feldman was ordered to pay $4,145,000 in restitution. She also served 16 months of her 27 month sentence. Court documents also reveal that Teresa’s publicist went to rehab for an oxycontin addiction.

Now, she runs a prison consultant website, CustodialCoaching.com, to help other people “prepare for court, investigations, incarceration, alternative sentences, and most importantly, re-entry into society.”

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.

    So she’s going to advise Teresa on how to get along in the slammer. I’ve never seen a “publicist” that had to advise a client on how not to become another prisoner”s bitch.
