Playing Teresa Giudice Plans Where She'll Spend Christmas Eve After 'Low Key' Release From Prison

Teresa Giudice will be keeping things very low-key following her release from prison on Dec. 23.

A source tells ET that Teresa is set to be released early during the day, and that there is no party planned for that night, saying "that night will be very low-key. Joe, her girls and the parents."

While Teresa does not have Christmas Day plans at this time, Teresa's attorney, James J. Leonard Jr., confirms to ET that she’ll be spending Christmas Eve with her family at Joe and Melissa Gorga’s house.

Melissa told People that the 43-year-old reality star's holiday reunion with the family "should be a beautiful thing."

A source told ET in September that both Teresa and Melissa will return to the Real Housewives of New Jersey after she gets out of prison.

Despite reports that Teresa would be released to a halfway house, her confirms to ET "that is absolutely 1000% false."

James also would not confirm reports that she could be released earlier than Dec. 23.

Teresa is out on early release this month after beginning her 15-month prison sentence in January. After Teresa is released, her husband, Joe Giudice, is to begin his 41-month prison sentence. The couple took a plea that would allow them to serve time separately so that one of them would be able to care for their children, Gia, 14, Gabriella, 10, Milania, 9, and Audriana, 6.

In October, Joe opened up to ET about the challenges Teresa has faced during her stay in prison.

"She's holding up. I can't say she's doing great but she looks good," Joe told ET's Jennifer Peros at the time. "She keeps her spirits up and tries to make us feel like she's OK but she's really not. She wants to be home."

Fortunately, Joe said the children were able to visit their mother often.

"Whenever we get there, Milania is just like, 'Mommy, why can you just come home? Why don't you just get up and leave?' and Teresa is like, 'Soon baby soon,'" Joe shared. "Adriana doesn't really say much about it but she cries sometimes."

This past Thanksgiving, Teresa's oldest daughter, Gia, shared photos from the family's first Thanksgiving without their mother, as she tried to keep spirits up, writing, "Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!"
