Celebs Tell The Truth About What Prison Was Really Like For Them

How many times have you heard, “Celebrities — they’re just like us”? Although this is practically inconceivable, there are certain situations where the phrase actually rings true. One of those situations? Jail time. Rumor has it that no one is above the law. Nope, not even celebrities. And as it turns out, our favorite stars have a lot to say about their time behind bars.

1. Lil’ Kim

The rapper revealed, “When I first got to prison, I slept so good for the first three weeks. I was greeted with open arms by a lot of wonderful, wonderful girls at FDC Philadelphia. I met a lot of good people in there who are still my friends to this day.”

2. Teresa Giudice

The Real Housewives star revealed, “I mean, there was mold in the bathrooms. There was not running water constantly. The showers were freezing cold… I mean, the living conditions were really horrible. It was — it was hell.”

3. Robert Downey Jr.

The actor revealed, “I thought it would be a lot smaller and tame. I was like, ‘Oh my God — what the f***?’ I thought it was going to be, like, the Corcoran State Prison and Theme Park, and I was f*****g speechless.”

4. Ja Rule

The rapper/actor explained, “I read a lot of books, got my GED while I was in there, and worked out every day. It kept me sane a lot of days when it was stressful, I didn’t get in any fights when I was there.”

5. Martha Stewart

The queen of home explained that the food in prison was highly unacceptable and well beyond its expiration date. “That’s why I made jam out of the crabapples on the trees,” she said. She also taught her fellow inmates how to make ceramics!

6. Mark Wahlberg

The rapper-turned-actor explained, “When I went to jail, that was a wake-up call. Over my lifetime I’ve known a lot of unsavory characters. I made a lot of mistakes in my own life, too, but thankfully I was able to learn from them.”

7. Lindsay Lohan

The actress revealed that during solitary confinement, “You leave your cell for one hour a day, and you don’t go outside. The other girls in the other cells were in there for murder. The weirdest part for me was I finally had silence in my life.”

8. Lil Wayne

While behind bars, the rapper worked the suicide-watch circuit before being sent into solitary confinement. He was to patrol the other inmates and notify guards if any of them seemed to be in danger of committing self-harm.

9. Tim Allen

When discussing his time in prison, the actor said, “It was a watershed moment. It put me in a position of great humility, and I was able to make amends to friends and family and refocus my life on setting and achieving goals.”

10. Michelle Rodriguez

The actress revealed, “It was so cool. It was an amazing experience. I wouldn’t take it back for anything. I have a really good belief in destiny. It’s, like, if i’m gonna be killed in there, I’m gonna be killed in there. But people were cool.”

11. T.I.

When asked if he had gotten into a fight while behind bars, the rapper admitted that he had. “Guys from your side and guys from their side,” he said. When asked who would throw the first punch in a fight, he said, “Hopefully you.”

12. Paris Hilton

The socialite explained, “At first, I went through so many emotions. It’s a learning experience I’m going to grow from. Just being away from everything… you know, the craziness, the paparazzi. I’ve had a lot of alone time to think and read and write.”

13. Mike Tyson

When talking about his time behind bars, the former boxer revealed, “I was having so much sex that I was too tired to even go to the gym and work out. I’d just stay in my cell all day.” Well, then!

14. Lauryn Hill

The singer explained, “Although it has taken some adjustment, I cannot deny the favor I have encountered while in here, and general warm reception from a community of people who, despite their circumstances, have found unique ways to make the best of them.”

15. Gucci Mane
