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!
Teresa Giudice is out of prison just in time for Christmas and it appears it’ll be a very merry Giudice holiday. The Real Housewives of New Jersey star returned home this morning and had an early Xmas gift in the driveway: a brand new black Lexus SUV with a giant red bow on top. Not that she’ll get to drive it very far while she’s on house arrest for the next two months…
People magazine just shared photos of the SUV, plus the first post-prison photos of Teresa. She’s standing outside in a black leather coat with jeans and pair of black boots. She’s look much less orange than we’re used to. 😉
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.
Teresa Giudice is giving reality television fans the most wonderful Christmas gift of all because today is the day she’ll be released from prison! I assume Bravo cameras will be standing by to capture the moment she is set free, and picked up by her attorney to be driven home to the many foreclosure’d manor in Montville. (Giudice Glenn?)
So Pay Attention PUH-LEAZE to the 6 reasons why Teresa’s release is giving us the holly jollies instead of the Bah Humbugs! (But on that note, let’s hope Teresa’s new lifestyle is a little more Ebeneezer Scrooge in the money department, and a little less Ma Moneybags!)

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.”

Melissa Gorga was spotted outside of her Envy by Melissa Gorgaboutique this week. The Real Housewives of New Jersey star announced yesterday that her store is now open – just in time for Christmas shopping.
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.”
