As “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” cast member, Teresa Giudice, tries to nestle back into her life, after spending nearly a year in prison on numerous fraud charges, she decided to video herself sharing an uplifting message to all of her supporters.
In typical Teresa fashion, she appeared upbeat and optimistic. Sporting a completely made up face and a holiday backdrop that featured a towering decorated tree and entryway, Teresa wanted to assure her fans that all was well on the Giudice estate. “Hi everyone, I’m back! I just want to wish everyone a Happy New Year,” Teresa said in an exclusive video message to Bravo’s The Daily Dish. “It’s gonna be a great 2016. Love, love, love you all.”
Teresa was just released from a federal correctional facility in Connecticut on December 23. She was sentenced to 15 months after pleading guilty to tax fraud but was reportedly released early for good behavior. The reality star-turned author spent the holidays with her four daughters, husband Joe and extended family members. Teresa’s joyous family reunion will be short-lived however as Joe, who also pleaded guilty to fraud charges is set to begin his 41-month prison term in March of next year.
Meanwhile, the Montville Township, New Jersey mom is on home confinement and can only leave her manse for work obligations, doctor’s appointments, select family functions, grocery shopping and to attend meetings with her legal team. Each of Teresa’s outings have to first be approved by the Bureau of Prisons and she also has to wear an ankle bracelet device that transmits her whereabouts back to her parole officer.
Teresa’s home imprisonment is set to end on February 5 of next year and reportedly, she does not have any plans whatsoever to break the constraints that she is currently under.
