Former ECW star Francine recently interviewed WWE Hall of Famer Tammy Sytch for the Eyes Up Here podcast, who discussed her time in prison. Below are some highlights (via WrestlingInc.com):

Sytch on her prison stint in Pennsylvania: ďWell this this was totally different. I got a driving on a suspension (charge) and Iím suspended from the old DUIs so itís a mandatory six months in jail in New Jersey. I did my six months for that but that violated the probation. I was still on in Pennsylvania, so I had to max out that time and that was maxed out to May 21st. I did just over 10 months. Fun stuff. But Iím all done with that probation in Pennsylvania now. They canít do anything else to me. That five years of them sending me back all the time for sneezing in the wrong direction is done. Thatís over. My P.P in Pennsylvania was horrible. It doesnít matter what I would do. If I was a half an hour late for an appointment she would violate me and stick me in jail. It was just bóót. But Iím done with them. Itís all over. Iím good here (in New Jersey). I just canít drive because if I do, when I get pulled over itíll be another mandatory six months.Ē

On what the experience was like for her: ďThey make it out to be a lot worse on TV than it actually is. Itís really not that bad. Itís doable if you can make it through. You donít even have to wake up if you donít want to. But Iím diabetic, so they would come and wake me up at 4: 30 every morning to do a sugar check and to give me insulin so at 4: 30 every morning. Itís a medical thing so you have to do it. Then Iíd go back to sleep for a couple hours and then usually around 8 oíclock is when they pop your door and you can go out and watch TV. And you know breakfast comes and all that stuff. I didnít eat a lot of their food though because the foodís horrible. But yeah, all you basically do is watch TV, play cards (and) you know you can sleep all day if you want to. Thereís a lot of girls who color, like those adult coloring books so theyíre coloring.Ē

Sytch on how it was run: ďWhere I was anyway, there was no strict format of things you have to do. You could be lazy or you could do something. I actually got a job there so I could have something to do. I got the best job in the jail because they trusted me and they knew I wasnít gonna like run. So I was cleaning the wardenís office and the lobby and I got to take the garbage out by myself into the parking lot where all the cars are. They trusted me that I was gonna come back and not run down the street.Ē
