Jailed Reality Star Teresa Giudice Heading Home for Christmas
Imprisoned reality TV star Teresa Giudice is set to be released from jail on Wednesday and will get to spend the Christmas holiday with her family. The Real Housewives of New Jersey star has been behind bars at the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, Connecticut, since January after she and her husband Joe were convicted for their roles in a bank and mail fraud scandal.
Giudice was sentenced to 15 months in jail, but instead of being released in February, she will now go home to celebrate Christmas with Joe, their four young girls, and extended family, according to the website for TV network Bravo, which airs her hit program. Giudice will remain in home confinement until February 5, her initial release date, according to the Federal Bureau of Prisons website. Joe was sentenced to 41 months behind bars, but a judge allowed the parents to serve terms separately for the sake of their daughters, who range in age from six to 14.
