Teresa Giudice has officially swapped her prison cell for her warm New Jersey home.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey reality star officially arrived safely at her Towaco house after departing the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, Conn. upon discharge at 5:01 a.m. Wednesday.
Driven by her attorney James Leonard Jr., the mother of four arrived at her family's driveway at 7:30 a.m. in a black SUV surrounded by four other matching vehicles. It was the first time she had set foot on the property since serving nearly a year in federal prison for fraud charges.
Inside the vehicle, the 43-year-old was photographed smiling for the cameras from the backseat of the car, sporting straight hair and a full face of makeup.
