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!
How sweet it is! Real Housewives of New Jersey star in-absentia,Teresa Giudice is reportedly back in the bosom of her family after serving nearly one year behind bars on fraud charges. The raven-haired reality star was released from the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, CT. in the wee hours of Wednesday morning to serve the remainder of her 15-month term in the confinement of her Jersey manse. A procession of black SUV’s arrived at the Giudice home at 7:30 am and Teresa was met with warm and fuzzy greetings hanging from her front door, one of which read, “We missed you.” Teresa will now be able to celebrate the holidays with her husband Joe, four girls and the rest of her lively family.
According to a close family source who spoke to People Magazine, Teresa is “Thrilled that she is finally going home.” Upon her release, Teresa was met by her lawyer, James J. Leonard, Jr., who also confirmed the fact that she left the minimum security prison. After vetting and signing a slew of mandatory release forms, Teresa officially kicked to the curb, her drab elastic-waist khakis and poly-blend button-down shirt mandatory prison attire at 5:01 am but was delayed until 5:30 am.
Pay attention PUH-LEAZE! Teresa Giudice will be released from prison on December 23rd, which means in 2 days’ time. Yay – it’s a golden, leopard-print, CHARGE IT! Christmas at the Giudices once again. Let’s just hope Melissa Gorga doesn’t f–k up and bring sprinkle cookies because in times of celebration – like when your sister-in-law gets sprung – only a pignoli cookie will do!
“… she’s getting released on Dec. 23, I don’t know exactly what time. I will be picking her up and driving her home,” Teresa’s attorney James Leonard Jr. confirmed. Teresa served 11 1/2 months of a 15 month sentence at Danbury Federal Correctional Institute. She received early release as a first-time, non-violent offender, who exhibited good behavior.
Despite her release the Real Housewives Of New Jersey star isn’t free as a bird! Teresa is required to wear an electronic ankle monitoring device and will be on “home confinement until Feb. 5.”
The countdown is on… only 13 days untilTeresa Giudice is set to be released from prison. Teresa will reportedly head home on Wednesday, December 23rd.
This means theReal Housewives of New Jersey star will be home in time to spend Christmas with her family, but once she finds out thatMelissa Gorga is hosting Christmas Eve, I would not be surprised if Teresa decides prison is the better option. I kid… about choosing prison, not about Christmas Eve at Casa de Leaky Beaver. Apparently, that is totally happening, and I know cameras will be rolling. #PleaseLetThereBeSprinkleCookies
Melissa recently talked with People about the “blessing” that is Teresa‘s timely release. About hosting Christmas Eve, she said, “It should be a beautiful thing.”
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their lives with us. And we would not have it any other way. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite snapshots from Thanksgiving. Enjoy.
Holidays are about fambly. At least that’s what Real Housewives of New Jersey’sTeresa Guidice is claiming about her decision to spend Thanksgiving alone at Danbury Correctional Facility, where she’s serving out her eleven and a half-month sentence until December 23rd of this year.
Teresa says she doesn’t want husband Joe Giudice and their four daughters, Gia, Gabriella, Milania, and Audriana, to visit her on Thanksgiving day because she wants the holiday to be “as normal as possible for the girls.” Normal may be in the eye of the beholder, but good on her for trying!
Teresa Giudice can barely construct the ingredientzes of a sentence, but she’s about to be a published author once again! Teresa’s prison memoir, titled ‘Turning The Tables: From Housewife to Inmate and Back Again‘ will be released this February and is being touted as an exposé on her life in prison and a glimpse at the real Teresa that reality TV cameras haven’t shown.
It looks like Teresa will be spending her Real Housewives Of New Jersey paycheck before she’s even earned it. In October the IRS filed a lien against Teresa and Joe Giudice seeking recoupment for nine years of unpaid tax bills.
