TV personality Teresa Giudice will be home for the holidays and is ‘craving a cappuccino’ as her first stop after her release from prison.
Former “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star Teresa Giudice, who will be released from The Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury on Dec. 23, won’t be Christmas shopping for her daughters because she’ll be short on time, a source tells [email protected]
“She’s getting out Wednesday (Dec. 23) and she won’t have time [to get the gifts] by the time she goes through release and gets home,” says our source, who adds that her husband Joe Giudice has been fulfilling Christmas wishes from their daughters Gia, 14, Gabriella, 10, Milania, 9, and Audriana, 5.
We hear Giudice, who will be released in the morning, has been asking for her first stop in the car ride home to be the first Starbucks she sees, since she has been “craving a cappuccino,” while behind bars.
Giudice, who will wrap up her 15 month prison stint for fraud, will go home to clean up and change for a Christmas Eve celebration at her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga’s Montville, New Jersey home. The two Jersey Housewives were once bitter enemies, but have since made up.
Joe Giudice will be fulfilling Christmas wishes from their daughters Gia, 14, Gabriella, 10, Milania, 9, and Audriana, 5 ahead of Teresa’s Dec. 23 release.
Giudice is more than thrilled to once again have access to her own hair and makeup supplies and will be glammed up for the holidays, we hear. On Christmas Day, she’ll head with her husband Joe Giudice and the girls to Joe’s family’s daytime celebration a mile from her Montville manse, which is now out of foreclosure with the “mortgage currently paid up.” In 2014, the Giudice’s couldn’t make the monthly mortgage payments of $ 10,679 per month and the house had lapsed into foreclosure. It’s unclear how Teresa and Joe are currently making money.
Giudice will then have over two months to spend with Joe, who will report to the Federal Correctional Institute at Fort Dix in mid March. During that time, we’re told Teresa will not be granting any interviews to the media, and will focus on her girls. No word yet on whether she will take part in filming the latest season of “RHONJ,” after the three-part special Bravo special, “The Real Housewives of New Jersey: Teresa Checks In,” was a ratings disaster.
