Bravo announces three major players are returning to RHONJ — is Teresa Giudice one of them?

Teresa Giudice is making a triumphant return to the TV home that made her famous.

Giudice is fresh out of federal prison, and her story of fame and misfortune has captivated reality TV fans for years. Now she is going back to where it all began — minus the felonies.

A major announcement about Giudice's future with Bravo and The Real Housewives of New Jersey was made on Andy Cohen's SiriusXM radio show, Radio Andy today, and on the show's Twitter page.

And Giudice is so ready to put the past behind her and move forward with her life. In a new interview with ABC News, she explained how she wound up in prison and why her future looks bright.

"This is what happened in my eyes. I signed some papers. There was no intent to commit a crime. I didn't know I was committing a crime," Giudice told Amy Robach. "I got indicted. The government saw it differently. I got sentenced. I ... served time. I did what I had to do and now I'm moving past it."

"[We're not in] foreclosure any longer, thank you, God," she said. "And our restitution's paid off. We're in — thank God — in good shape."

Giudice told Bravo's blog The Daily Dish, "I am very excited to be back. For me, this season is all about letting go of the past and embracing the future. People are calling me Teresa 2.0."

Season 7 has already begun filming, but a premiere date has not yet been announced.
