Teresa and Gia Giudice

Teresa Giudice is a free-ish woman at last! I mean sort of. The Real Housewives Of New Jersey star, who was released from federal prison just before Christmas, has officially been removed from house arrest as of today. 

That’s not the only good news for Teresa! The Turning The Tables author also paid off all $414,000 of her restitution. Now for the rest of the $13.4 million and change she owes…

“Effective this morning, Teresa is no longer subject to the parameters of home confinement. She is now free in all aspects from the custodial portion of her sentence,” announced Teresa’s attorney. “The restitution has been paid in full and what remains is a two-year period of supervised release, the terms of which we will remain in full compliance with. ” Now Teresa is free to travel around the country on book tours and more!

BTW: Supervised release means Teresa is on probation. 

Teresa is very much looking forward to closing this dark chapter in her life and moving forward both personally and professionally,” her attorney continued in a statement to People

This dark chapter isn’t over, however, as Joe Giudice heads to prison soon to serve 41 months, followed by a possible deportation. Plus the Giudices are still dealing with their $13.4 million in outstanding debt after their bankruptcy filing was denied, a tax lien, and foreclosure issues. But at least Teresa is finally getting along with Melissa Gorga…  

But I guess BabySteps, BabySteps, BabySteps, right?

Teresa will be appearing on Good Morning America on February 9th for her first official media appearance following her release.
