Teresa Giudice Celebrates Christmas With Melissa and Joe Gorga Following Prison Stint

Teresa Giudice is free!
After being released from a federal prison in Danbury, Connecticut, on Wednesday, the 43-year-old Real Housewives of New Jersey star spent Christmas Eve with her brother, Joe Gorga, at his and wife Melissa Gorga's home in New Jersey.
Teresa was joined by her husband, Joe Giudice, and their four daughters -- Gia, Gabriella, Milania and Audriana, along with Joe and Melissa's daughter, Antonia, and Joe's two sons, Gino and Joey. The family even had a couple of Christmas carolers stop by!

Melissa prepared a traditional Italian meal for the quiet family celebration, according to People. She and Joe both took to Instagram after dinner, sharing a few snaps from their Christmas Eve festivities. Though the Giudice family is missing from the photos, Melissa and Joe's children made an appearance.
Melissa kept her caption simple, writing, "Christmas eve."
"Merry Christmas from the Gorga boys!" Joe captioned his pic. "This is our boxing face."

Upon Teresa's return home, her 14-year-old daughter, Gia, took to Twitter, writing, "Welcome back" with a smile face emoji on Dec. 23.
Melissa also shared a welcome home message, tweeting, "With Christmas comes miracles. Welcome home."
While Teresa can put her mistakes behind her -- she served nearly 12 months in prison after pleading guilty to fraud -- her husband still has to serve his 41-month sentence for the same crime. Joe will head to prison in March, as ET previously reported.
