Here's What DMX, Bill Cosby, and Joe Giudice Had for Their Prison Christmas Meal

Let's find out what incarcerated celebrities had to eat for Christmas dinner while you were cozy by the fire.

Joe Giudice

Joe Giudice, who is a reality TV star from "Real Housewives" and is serving time for fraud, had this to eat in his Pennsylvania prison:

Cornish game hen or broccoli quiche, cornbread dressing, whole kernel corn, baked sweet potato, chicken gravy, cranberry sauce, salad, dinner rolls and pie.

Christmas Eve is a bit more downscale ... just chili and cornbread.


Rapper DMX is serving a one-year sentence in West Virginia for tax evasion. Here's his Christmas meal:

Cornish game hen, deli sandwich, PB&J sandwich and chips. Inmates also get a $50 bump in commissary funds for December to use on chocolates, cookies and peanut cluster bars.

I side of sandwiches with hen is an interesting choice.

Bill Cosby

Bill Cosby, who is undeserving of a decent Christmas meal, got to enjoy this in jail:

Roast beef, bean burger, whipped potatoes, gravy, green beans, creamy coleslaw, dinner rolls and baked fruit pie.

Suge Knight

Former Death Row Records CEO Suge Knight is serving a 28-year sentence in California. His Christmas meal was similar to the others':

Turkey or chicken, gravy, stuffing, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, salad, veggies, cranberry sauce and ice cream.

The former No Limit soldier and rapper is currently being held related to rape charges and awaiting trial, having just a plain meal for Christmas according to TMZ:

2 turkey dogs, potato salad, greens and cake. In other words, nothing special.

Thanksgiving Was Similar

TMZ also notes that Thanksgiving was the same for most of these inmates. There were a few new names, but guys like Suge actually seem to have it made on Thanksgiving:

Turkey, gravy, stuffing, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, salad, cranberry sauce, ice cream (no pie, sorry Suge) and veggies


Before he was moved for his own safety, 6ix 9ine was set to have the following while at Brooklyn's MDC:

Turkey or eggplant, mashed sweet potato, corn, stuffing, gravy, cranberry sauce, biscuit andĀ pumpkinĀ pie

While not technically a celebrity in the classic sense, we all know who Paul Manafort is at this point. And he's chowing down on prison food for the holidays:

Turkey, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, gravy, stuffing, green beans, cranberry sauce, rolls, and pumpkin pie

Cosby Again

And Cosby's Thanksgiving meal was very similar to his Christmas meal, while keeping close to the traditional meal we all eat at home.

Turkey (or a garden burger for vegetarians), bread stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, green peas, cranberry sauce, dinner rolls with margarine and pumpkin pie with whipped cream or fruit
