Teresa Giudice had a special and very emotional reunion upon her release from federal prison on Wednesday and is looking forward to spending Christmas with her family.
The 43-year-old Real Housewives of New Jersey star had in January begun was what to be a 15-month federal prison sentence at a Connecticut prison after she and husband Joe Giudice were indicted for fraud charges. Teresa was released early on Wednesday, four months early and the day before Christmas Eve.
She reunited with Joe, who is set to begin a 41-month prison sentence in March, and their four daughters, Gia, 14, Gabriella, 11, Milania, 10, and Audriana, 6, at their home. Her lawyer, James J. Leonard Jr., drove her from the prison.
"It was very emotional," he told reporters regarding her reunion with her daughters. "It was a private moment but it was very emotional, very powerful and it was something to see."
