Teresa Giudice will serve time in the prison that was the inspiration for "Orange is the New Black" ... but there will be no hookups AND she won't be as fashionable.
We got hold of the prison handbook for the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, CT -- where she'll serve her 15 months -- and the rules FORBID intimate relations between inmates -- a la Poussey and Taystee.
And she can forget prison chic -- the official uniform is grey, khaki, white, or pastel green.
Giudice will get family visits ... where kissing and touching IS allowed ... but her 4 daughters and Joe will max out at 12 visits a month.
She'll also have to work ... most likely in one of the prison factories -- those jobs generally go to inmates who have to pay off huge restitution debts, so she qualifies.
As for buying stuff ... inmates are limited to $320/mo. at the prison store. She's allowed to beautify herself at the prison barber shop.
Come to think of it ... it's a lot like Jersey.

Using Disney Pickup Line
10/23/2014 11:41 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Justin Bieber can put Bill Clinton to shame ... and if you doubt that check out this video of the Biebs zeroing in on a very hot model he ultimately reels in.
Bieber was cruising Rodeo Drive in a Rolls-Royce when he caught a glimpse of Jacqueline Younis ... who was in the middle of a photo shoot for Festoun clothing.
JB ordered his driver to stop ... and he then summoned the damsel to the Rolls ... and she obliged.
Bieber -- practically drooling -- took a pic with her and it looked like they were about to exchange numbers, but his fame got in the way ... too many photogs, too many fans.
BTW ... check out his pickup line, comparing her to a Disney character. It's super Goofy.
MEN'S UNDERWEAR BATTLE
... With Russell Westbrook
10/22/2014 6:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
There's a war brewing in the Oklahoma City Thunder locker room -- an underwear war -- because teammates Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook are now officially competitors in the man-panties biz.
Durant just inked a deal with Neff -- one of the hottest skater/surfer brands -- to launch an underwear line ... set to kick off next year in time for back to school shopping.
Neff works with HUGE celebs and athletes (Snoop Dogg and Richard Sherman, to name a few) ... but Durant's deal is different because he actually OWNS part of the new line.
In fact, we spoke with Shaun Neff, the founder of the company, who tells us, "We've met several times. He's very involved, especially in the creative process and marketing."
So, where does Westbrook fit in? RW has a line of boutique undies with Kings & Jaxs -- featuring all sorts of funky designs personally approved by Westbrook.
Bottom line -- these guys are super competitive ... so it'll be interesting to see who emerges as the Underwear King of Oklahoma.
Stay tuned ...
I Burn Defenses In
$1,000 Dollar Cleats!!
10/22/2014 12:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
There's a war raging in the NFL -- a fashion war -- with some of the biggest stars in the game spending BIG MONEY to customize their cleats for game day ... TMZ Sports has learned.
Huge stars like DeSean Jackson, Reggie Bush, Terrell Suggs and Cameron Wake have been taking their kicks to famous shoe artists ... and giving marching orders to make their cleats as swagged out and original as possible without violating the league's strict uniform policy.
We spoke with one of the biggest names in the cleat game Marcus Rivero (aka SolesBySir) -- who tells us in the last year he customized more than 300 PAIRS for stars looking to make an on-the-field fashion statement (check out some of his designs in the gallery below).
"It's really the only way they have left to express themselves," Rivero tells us ... "They can push the envelope with the cleats in ways they can't do with their uniform."
The customization process -- taking a plain pair of turf chewers and "re-imagining" them -- takes days and can cost between $400 to $1,000 dollars depending on the job.
But the final cost SKYROCKET if the NFL decides the design doesn't jive with league guidelines.
"It's $5,400 for a first time uniform violation. The athletes can appeal, but you know, there's still a chance [they'll get fined." Rivero says in addition to NFL rules, certain teams have their own uniform guidelines and will punish players who violate their policies.
In fact, back in 2011 ... the NFL fined Marshawn Lynch $10k for wearing Skittles-themed cleats during a game.
Still, Rivero says the risk is well worth it for some of the higher paid in the league -- "Every shoe is one of one, no duplicates. Never seen before, never seen again."
Hey, if you look good, you play good ... right?

A rep for Audemars -- popular with celebs like Jay-Z -- says the luxury watchmaker has a relationship with the tennis champ ... but this watch wasn't a freebie from them.

So, did Serena drop $75k on gift for herself? It's not like she can't afford it.
Oscar de la Renta
Dead at 82
10/20/2014 6:12 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Oscar de la Renta -- who recently designed Amal Clooney's wedding dress and famously dressed Jackie Kennedy -- is dead.
De la Renta had been diagnosed with cancer in 2006 ... though it's unclear at this point what caused his death.
De la Renta was born in the Dominican Republic, and became internationally known in the '60s as one of Jackie Kennedy's favorite designers. He had just announced a knockoff version of Amal's now famous gown would be added to his 2015 bridal collection.
He built his brand into more than just a fashion house -- eventually launching his famous fragrance ... OSCAR ... and also a home wares line.
First Ladies Reagan, Clinton, and Laura Bush all wore Oscar's gowns for inaugurations -- and Hollywood celebs Kristen Stewart, Cameron Diaz, and Oprah Winfrey frequently wore his designs.
ABC News first reported his death.
My Butt is Back!
... And It Wants Taco Bell
10/19/2014 1:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Dammmmmmmmmmnn .... is pretty much all you can say about Kim Kardashian's ass-entuating outfit for a Sunday afternoon outing with Kanye West.
The couple hit up a theater in Calabasas for a movie date and on the way out Kim proudly displayed her trademark in cutoff jeans and a back-baring top -- then they hit up a Taco Bell drive-thru.
You can tell from the photo ... Kanye gives this rearview two thumbs up. Way up.
Not to be a buzzkill -- but rubbing your bare back on a movie theater seat? Risky business.

BRINGIN' REEBOK PUMPS BACK
... With Custom Paint Job
10/19/2014 12:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
It's like 1989 all over again ... 'cause Dominique Wilkins is teaming up with a famous sneaker artist to swag out a sick pair of Reebok Pumps -- and it's all for charity.
TMZ Sports spoke with Kickstradomis -- a legend in the shoe world who even created custom cleats for L.A. Dodgers stars Andre Ethier and Dee Gordon.
Kickstradomis tells us Wilkins contacted him to work on a custom shoe that could be auctioned off at an event in November which raises money for the Spina Bifida Association.
The shoe-artist says he was all about it from the start and immediately came up with "three mock-ups" in an effort to turn a classic pair of red and white Pumps into a luxury Hawks-themed masterpiece.
We're told Dominique was FIRED UP when he saw the final design and will sign them before they hit the auction block.
Pretty cool, right?

I HAVE GLAUCOMA!

If you've ever made fun of Bono for wearing sunglasses inside, prepare to feel like an ass -- because the singer just revealed the only reason he's been doing it for 2 decades is because he has glaucoma.
During a recent taping of the "Graham Norton Show" Bono said he's been suffering from the condition for 20 years ... and finally felt it was time to come out with his eye condition.
Bono said he's been getting treatments and will be fine, adding ... "You're not going to get this out of your head now and you will be saying, 'Ah, poor old blind Bono.'"
Still no excuse for putting U2's new album on the cloud though.
THIS Is How You Shop, Gayle
10/16/2014 4:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Oprah Winfrey followed that old adage ... when in Rome, shop your freaking face off and flaunt your overpriced purchases to the peasants.
The Big O hit up Via Condotti (Rome's way snootier version of Rodeo Drive) with her entourage -- including BFF Gayle King ... and proceeded to drop major Euros in Ermanno Scervino.
Oprah walked out loaded down with 4 huge bags from the high fashion store. Gayle had 1 ... but it's all relative, right?
Somewhere an Italian salesperson is celebrating tonight.
SJP's Makeup Artist
For Mass Purse Snatchings
10/16/2014 10:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Sarah Jessica Parker's klepto makeup artist was just busted for stealing once again ... this time she allegedly jacked 3 different purses over the course of 6 months -- worth TONS of money!
Leslie Lopez -- who was caught shoplifting twice in Norway back in 2012 -- has been the focus of a police investigation ... over 3 designer handbags from Saks Fifth Avenue in Florida that went missing.
The Bal Harbour PD says Lopez allegedly swooped a Fendi handbag in January worth $2,750 ... then in April she allegedly swooped a Louis Vuitton purse worth the same amount -- and walked out of the store with the purse draped over her shoulder.
Same goes for a Louis Vuitton purse in June worth $3,800 ... only that time she concealed the item inside a shopping bag before walking out.
Leslie turned herself into authorities this week and was charged with 3 counts of grand theft.
Sources close to Leslie tell us she voluntarily went to police because she wanted to set things right by paying for the stolen merch. We're told Leslie has been depressed and on a bunch of meds since her mother's death last year -- but recently she's been cleaning up her act, and as part of that process she surrendered to cops.
In case you forgot ... SJP's longtime makeup artist was fined in Norway for stealing a pair of sunglasses -- she also took some lipstick -- but Leslie INSISTED she had been set up.
at Hollywood Hot Spot

Watch and listen carefully to this clip and you'll hear the timer expire on V. Stiviano's 15 minutes of fame.
Donald Sterling's BFF did her best Saturday night to get into Hollywood hot spot 1Oak, but security wasn't having it. She tried phoning a friend, but that didn't seem to work either.
Maybe the staff just didn't recognize her without her trademark visor -- but V. should clearly stick to places where she's V.I.P. ... like Sterling's house.
