They laugh, they catch up a little, and then Andy mentions, the last time he saw her, it didn’t seem like Teresa was preparing herself for prison. “No, not at all,” she admits. “I was just in the moment and focusing on my daughters. I felt like I was dying. In reality, that’s who I felt. I wanted to, every weekend, do something special with them. Especially with my little baby. I did not want her to forget me.”
Teresa, of course, will be the main focus of season 7 as she tries to repair her relationships with her family and friends, namely Melissa and Jacqueline, and learns to live without Joe Giudice. “I am very excited to be back,” said Teresa. “For me this season is all about letting go of the past and embracing the future. People are calling me Teresa 2.0.” Ha! Who are these people? Andy Cohen?
Ahead of the release, the New York Daily News is sharing a few excerpts from the Real Housewives of New Jersey star’s tell-all, which includes her sexual fantasies (eww), the pros and cons of her celebrity status (there are more pros than cons), and her vision for the future (she is soooo out of touch with reality).
Since her December 23 prison release after serving 11 months on fraud counts, Real Housewives of New Jersey’sTeresa Giudice has certainly been busy trying to get her life back in order. The reality series star and best-selling author, who has probably been hounded by hordes of media vying to get the first post-prison interview with her has agreed to a sit-down with ABC-TV’s “Good Morning America.”
Teresa and husband Joe Giudice have in the past, given exclusives to their boss, Andy Cohenwho is an executive producer on RHONJ, a former Bravohead honcho and the host of “Watch What Happens Live” on the same network. Now Teresa will chat with Amy Roach (pictured right), GMA’s news anchor. Page Six states that took place at Teresa’s Montville, N.J. Township mansion and will air on February 9 which is coincidentally, the very same day her memoir, ‘Turning the Tables: From Housewife to Inmate and Back Again’ is set to be released. Perfect timing or perfect orchestration?
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.
Now that recent ‘get out of jail, free’ card holder Teresa Giudice is back in the bosom of her family after spending nearly a year in lock-down on fraud charges, inquiring minds want to know, has she been gallivanting around town? Well the Real Housewives of New Jersey star, who is under house arrest, spent intimate time with her four daughters, hubby Joe and extended family members over the holiday and now, she is reportedly trying to get her outside life back on track.
Whenever Teresa wants to leave her home, she must first have the Bureau of Prisons sign off on the request according to a source who spoke to People Magazine. “She asks permission to go places. The probation officer then gives her the parameters of that. He will ask her which stores she is going to and then says, ‘You can go from this time to this time.’ She can go to work, go to the doctor or go see her lawyer – all with the officer’s permission.” Reportedly, if Teresa needs to travel to New York City for RHONJ, she can, as long as the trip is work-related. However, if she wants to travel elsewhere, she’ll have to put the brakes on those plans, until after her house arrest ends on February 5 of next year.
As y’all know, everyone’s favorite table-flipper was released from prison bright and early yesterday morning. Teresa Giudice was greeted by her family and a media presence usually reserved for a royal wedding. The Real Housewives of New Jersey star even got a sweet new ride out of the deal…I guess now that she’s served her time on all those bankruptcy fraud charges, she can go back to spending the money she claimed not to have!
After nearly a year in a minimum security prison, Teresa was certainly elated to be reunited with her loved ones, and her lawyer informed the crowd that the reality star had a “very emotional, very private” homecoming with Juicy Joe and her four daughters…and a camera crew from People magazine exclusively capturing the entire event for Tuesday’s print edition. He also asserted that Teresa wouldn’t be making any public appearances in the coming weeks. Yeah, and I’ve got some ocean front property in Arizona!
