Teresa Guidice is happily settling into life at home and just released a message for fans.
Real Housewives of New Jersey star Giudice released a video thanking fans for their support and showing great optimism for the new year, despite the fact that husband Joe’s turn in prison is coming up in the next few months.
“Hi everyone, I’m back! I just want to wish everyone a Happy New Year,” Teresa said in the exclusive video message to Bravo’s The Daily Dish. “It’s gonna be a great 2016. Love, love, love you all.”
Just because Teresa is out of prison doesn’t mean she is free to come and go as she pleases. She is currently under house arrest and must get approval from her parole officer before going anywhere.
“She asks permission to go places,” a source told People magazine. “The probation officer then gives her the parameters of that. He will ask her which stores she is going to and then says, ‘You can go from this time to this time.’ She can go to work, go to the doctor or go see her lawyer – all with the officer’s permission.”
She is also allowed to go to certain social events with her probation officer’s permission, like her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga’s Christmas Eve party.
Teresa is under house arrest until Feb. 5. Joe is due to begin his 41-month prison sentence in March.
