It's been almost a year since viewers were brought into the Giudice home, but that's about to change with The Real Housewives of New Jersey Teresa Checks In. E! News has your exclusive first look at the three-part special about the reality show family living life while matriarch Teresa Giudice is in prison.

"It's amazing how she still controls everything from in there, you know what I mean?" Joe Giudice says in the trailer below.

Teresa Checks In, which debuts Sunday, Oct. 11, at 8 p.m., follows Joe at home with his four daughters: Gia, Gabriella, Milania, and Audriana. He's Mr. Mom, but he's not alone. Teresa's brother Joe Gorga and sister-in-law Melissa Gorga are around, as is Teresa's cousin Rosie Pierri. Tasks at hand while Teresa is behind bars include: Gia's eighth grade prom and graduation (and the adolescent hormones that come with it!), a coffee-guzzling Milania, trips down to the Jersey Shore and a venture to Upstate New York to the Catskills.

All this while Joe faces his own prison sentence and possible deportation back to Italy stemming from the fraud charges he and Teresa pleaded guilty to last year.

Despite her prison sentence, Teresa is still very much a force within the household. She has daily "check in" calls and his regular visits with her family. Teresa has been in prison since January and is expected to be out around Christmas holidays.

"Oh, please God, bring me home to my family as soon as possible," Teresa says in the trailer below. "And bless my four daughters and my husband. Amen."

The Real Housewives of New Jersey Teresa Checks In premieres Sunday, Oct. 11, at 8 p.m. Catch an exclusive clip from the first episode during the season premiere of The People's Couch on Tuesday, Oct. 6, at 10 p.m. ET on Bravo.
