Teresa Giudice caused quite a stir on Sunday when a tweet popped up on her personal Twitter account. “Thank you everyone for all of the cards, letters, and kind words of support,” the tweet read. “I love, love, love you all. XO, T!”
Many wondered, is the Real Housewives of New Jersey star getting special privileges in prison? Or is a friend/family member tweeting on Teresa‘s behalf? Teresa’s lawyer, James Leonard Jr, came forward to clear up the confusion.
It was a bit of a shock to open Twitter tonight and see a Tweet from Teresa pop up! I’m sure it was a family member or a rep who is sharing Teresa’s words, but it was still surprising since the account has been silent since Christmas time! Teresa took to Twitter to thank her fans for their support during this time.
Last week Amber had a 4-hour partial mastectomy to remove potentially cancerous tissue from her right breast. In April after discovering a lump she underwent a surgical biopsy, which was determined to be cancerous which necessitated the second surgery. Amber was shocked to learn that after 6 years in remission the biopsy showed cancer. “Even though the original diagnosis demonstrated multiple tumors the chances of it recurring were very small after treatment,” Amber explains. “Ninety-five percent of the time, it doesn’t come back.”
Chris Manzo and his brother Albie Manzo are hoping to follow in their father and uncle’s footsteps and add to the family restaurant business. The brothers opened Little Town three-years-ago, but then opted to move the restaurant to a more social atmosphere, opening an Ainsworth Hoboken franchise in the original location while relocating Little Town to another section of Hoboken. After renovations, the Manzo’d With Children stars have re-opened Little Town… just while the Bravo cameras are rolling, of course – and everything is going great!
“The opening was a blast!” Chris shares. “We had a packed house and everyone had a great time. Anyone willing to take a night out of their busy schedules to celebrate the grand opening with us is a special guest, so yes, there were plenty of them.”
“The surgery was close to four hours,” Jim Marchese told E!. “They removed the tumor and more than 20 millimeters surrounding it. She was in a good deal of pain last night. She’s been resting and she is coming home today. After this, she’ll have five weeks of radiation and then another surgery.”
Oy. I cannot decide which of these headlines is more “bang my head against a brick wall” worthy. Ugh. Probably the second one, because the first comes from Teresa‘s lawyer, who’s being paid (maybe) to say things like Teresa’s “strength and resolve” amaze him. <side eye> And there’s more where that came from.
“December 23rd is her release date,” Teresa‘s lawyer, James J. Leonard, told E! News. “There is a possibility that could be moved forward. That’s something we’re actively working on. She will be home for Christmas. I know that means the world to her. Christmas in her house is a big event. When she gets out, she will be on what they consider home confinement, but she will not ultimately be confined to her home. She’ll be free to travel about with certain restrictions until February 5th.” If released on December 23rd, Teresa will have spent 11 months and 18 days of her 15-month sentence behind bars.
