Fans of The Real Housewives of New Jersey have been waiting for this moment and it is finally here. Teresa Giudice has spoken out for the first time since her prison release. In a video exclusively shared by Bravo's The Daily Dish, Teresa is at her New Jersey home surrounded by Christmas decorations, where she says with a smile on her face, "Hi everyone, I'm back! I just want to wish everyone a Happy New Year. It's gonna be a great 2016. Love, love, love you all."
Despite the video being only nine seconds long, it's still great to hear from Teresa herself. When she first came home on Dec. 23, the only comment the 43-year-old author gave was via her attorney James Leonard Jr. He told People, "Merry Christmas. Happy New Year ... all of you should go be with your families and your loved ones."
There's been so much talk through her lawyer and family that I almost forgot what her voice sounds like. She sure seems happy to be home and ready to start out the new year with a clean slate. Also, is anyone else relieved to see that the reality star is still all about "love, love, love?"
In January 2015, Teresa went prison after she and her husband, Joe Giudice, pled guilty to multiple counts of fraud in March 2014. Now that Teresa is home, Joe is set to go to prison in March 2016, where he is slated to serve out a 41-month prison sentence.
