The Real Housewives of New Jersey’s resident parolee, Teresa Giudice, who has a strict curfew following her recent release from prison, nearly violated it. Teresa, who got locked up on fraud charges, attended a red carpet soirée to celebrate the opening of sister-in-law and RHONJ co-star, Melissa Gorga’s fashion boutique Envy’s opening in Montclair, N.J.
According to TMZ, Teresa, who has to adhere to a 10:00 pm curfew as part of her probation, nearly missed her check-in time had it not been for an Uber driver, who was willing to break speed limits to get her home and the merciful cop, who stopped but didn’t ticket them.

Last Thursday night Teresa, who attended the Envy boutique bash with eldest daughter Gia, realized she had to dash in order to make it home by 10:00 pm for her probation check-in time according to TMZ. After getting into an Uber, Teresa reportedly instructed the cabbie to step on it, so that she would not be in violation of her parole. When the driver was stopped by a patrolman for speeding, Teresa reportedly stepped in and informed the officer she was to blame. When the policeman recognized the raven-haired TV personality, he let the responsible parties off with just a warning.
Teresa was released from a federal correction institution in Danbury, CT. on December 23, after serving just under a year of a 15-month sentence. Teresa’s husband Joe Giudice, who was handed down a 41-month prison term also for fraud charges, is expected to turn himself into the very same Fort Dix, N.J. facility in March where reality series Real Housewives of Atlanta’s, Apollo Nida is coincidentally serving an eight-year sentence.
Reportedly, the Joisey fashionista made it home just in the nick of time! Whew!
