Playing Teresa Giudice Calls Her Family From Prison in New 'Real Housewives of New Jersey' Special

Teresa Giudice may be behind bars, but that doesn't mean that Bravo fans are going to miss out on all the drama!

The Real Housewives of New Jersey: Teresa Checks In is a new three-part special, premiering Sunday, Oct. 11, that will highlight the trials and tribulations of the Giudice family while their matriarch is in prison.

On Monday, Bravo released an extended first look of the upcoming special, which features Joe Giudice struggling to raise his four girls -- Gia, 14, Gabriella, 10, Milania, 9, and Audriana, 5 -- all by himself in the chaotic house.

"It's hard keeping up with all these kids. I'm doing a lot. I think I even lost about 10pounds," Joe shares to the camera.

The nearly two-minute preview also features multiple calls from Teresa in prison. "Oh, please God, bring me home to my family as soon as possible and bless my four daughters and my husband. Amen," the RHONJ star prays through the speakerphone with her family in the room.

Teresa began her 15-month sentence on Jan. 5, 2015, but was able to secure an early release date of Dec. 23. She will remain in the prison system under home confinement until her sentence ends in early Feb. 2016.

Joe even joked that despite the fact that his wife is in the big house, she still knows everything that's going on in their house. "It's amazing how she still controls everything from in there," he says.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey: Teresa Checks In premieres Sunday, Oct. 11 at 8 p.m. Additionally, you can catch an exclusive clip of the first episode in the season premiere of “The People’s Couch” on Tuesday, October 6 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
