Do you smell that? That’s the smell of sweet, sweet freedom for Teresa Giudice. After 11 months behind bars for bank fraud, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star is able to go home! She was released from prison this morning around 5:01 AM.
Before her long-awaited arrival, she gave herself a makeover in the prison bathroom, applying makeup and straightening her hair. Giudice’s lawyer, James Leonard, picked her up from prison to drive her home to New Jersey and she enjoyed a cappuccino in the car while listening to Christmas music. People obtained the first pictures of Giudice’s release, and she looks great with a smile on her face! “She is free,” her lawyer said.
A source close to the family said, “Joe was waiting for her in the driveway smiling, he looked like he was anxiously anticipating her arrival.” There was even a brand new Lexus (complete with a big red bow) waiting in their driveway. Giudice’s oldest daughter, Gia, took to Twitter to share her excitement with a simple, but sweet message.

All four daughters had decorated signs taped to the front door of their home welcoming their mother. What a wonderful Christmas gift! Leonard says they will have a “nice, quiet, low-key” holiday.
