Before Litchfield

Season Three

Judy King, who stars in the cooking TV series Judy King at Home, is arrested on tax evasion charges. The inmates back at Litchfield are able to follow her sentencing, which is televised. King is named guilty of all charges.

In "Trust No Bitch", she arrives at Litchfield to self-surrender. However, when no one is available at the front desk, she becomes insulted and agitated.

Season Four

She receives preferential treatment in the form of a large room later shared by Yoga Jones. Initially she rejected bunk assignment offers from Healy saying she got along with everybody and that she didn't want any special treatment. Then later she told Jones that while she didn't ask for special treatment she had learned long ago that when someone offers you something nice you shut up and say thank you.


The 'ghetto' inmates have an obsession with getting a photo of Judy to sell to a magazine so they can make money but the plan is soon revealed to Judy by Poussey who decides to go along with it by spontaneously kissing Cindy while Poussey takes the photo. The photo gets leaked and Judy and Cindy are sent to Caputo's office where they explain to him they are in a relationship and it is "the real deal". Cindy and Judy then spend the rest of the season pretending to be together.
