Teresa Giudice will be home for Christmas, and not only in her dreams

Teresa Giudice's Christmas wish is coming true: She will be spending the holiday exactly where she really wants to be.

Giudice is currently in prison on fraud charges, but her new lawyer has arranged an early release and she will be home in time to spend Christmas with her husband and daughters.

An insider revealed to E! News that Giudice will walk free next week.

"All Teresa wants is a very low-key Christmas at home with her family. She's nine days away from getting out and it's her only focus," the source said. "She and Joe have had conversations about presents, yes, but it's not what matters. Literally the only thing she cares about is coming home to her family."

Her friends and family could not be more excited, said the source.

"Everyone's doing a countdown. It's an exciting time," the insider shared. "Everyone's excited to see her again and come over to the house and hug her. Everyone's just very proud of how she's handled things and gotten through it and stayed strong. They're really thankful she's finally coming home."

So what is on her agenda after spending the last year in prison? A fancy vacation? Shopping sprees? Nothing like that, said the pal. She just wants a low-key holiday with her loved ones. The Giudices have "no plans other than that now."

The family's joy could be short-lived, though. While this holiday will certainly be a special one, there is a specter hanging over the family: Joe Giudice still needs to serve his own prison term. He is expected to report in March. However, they will not let that put a dampener on their Christmas.

"No one's thinking about [Joe's prison term] right now," the source shared with E! News. "No one's thinking beyond having Teresa home again."

Hopefully The Real Housewives of New Jersey cameras will be present to capture the entire reunion.
