'Real Housewives Of New Jersey' Star Teresa Giudice Released From Prison

‘Real Housewives Of New Jersey’ Star Teresa Giudice Released From Prison

Giudice arrived in a black SUV, part of a caravan of cars and cameras following them. A Lexus wrapped in a red bow was waiting for her in her driveway.

Giudice’s laywer, James Leonard Jr., said she had a “very emotional, very private, very powerful” reunion with her daughters. “It was something to see,” he said.

“Gia was up early this morning and then the younger ones started to get up,” he said. “I think they got a little bit of sleep. I got no sleep. Teresa says that she didn’t sleep at all. Joe slept a little bit. I think everyone is going to sleep well tonight, myself included.”

He also said Teresa wanted to relay a message.

“‘Merry Christmas. Happy New Year. All of you should go be with your families and your loved ones,'” he quoted her as saying.

Giudice has been at the prison since January. She and her husband, Joe Giudice, pleaded guilty last year to bankruptcy fraud. They admitted hiding assets from bankruptcy creditors and submitting phony loan applications to get some $5 million in mortgages and construction loans.

Joe Giudice is expected to start his own prison sentence in March. A federal judge staggered the couple’s sentences in deference to their four daughters.
