WATCH: Teresa Giudice Appears in First Video Since Going to Prison
Teresa Giudice has a special message for her fans.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey star posted a video, released on Bravo, Wednesday (Dec. 30), marking her first on-camera appearance since she was sent to prison in January. “Hi everyone, I’m back!” she says while standing in the corridor of her family’s mansion in New Jersey. “I just want to wish everyone a Happy New Year. It’s gonna be a great 2016. Love, love, love you all.”
The 49-year-old served a little less than 12 months behind bars at the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, Conn. for fraud, and will finish out her 15-month sentence via home arrest. Her electronic monitoring bracelet is not visible in the video.
Teresa and her family, husband Joe and their four daughters, spent Christmas Eve with her brother Joe Gorga and wife Melissa. According to E! News, Bravo cameras were there filming throughout the entire evening. Teresa’s husband — who was indicted — will start serving his 41-month prison sentence in March 2016.
