Gia says that the first thing that they did was hug (after Teresa sidestepped her new prison present: A Lexus). “And kissed,” added mom, noting that they shopped together for clothing for the event.

Teresa has been enjoying the company of her family on Twitter since her release. The Real Housewives of New Jersey star has also been enjoying at-home facials and working out using yoga DVDs.
