First Look at Teresa Giudice's Return Home on 'The Real Housewives of New Jersey'
By Raphael Chestang
Bravo released the first footage of Teresa Giudice's emotional homecoming on Tuesday, following her 11-month prison stint.
The reality star is officially returning for The Real Housewives of New Jersey's seventh season and cameras rolled as she embraced her four daughters and husband Joe Giudice during her first moments as a free woman in December.
"Be there for the moment Teresa comes home," the text in the teaser clip reads over images of the family's tear-filled reunion.
Season seven, launching later this year, will pick up more than a year after season six ended in November 2014. The season will focus on Teresa trying to repair her relationships with her brother, Joe Gorga, and his wife, Melissa, as well as prepare for husband Joe's 41-month prison sentence.
In the memoir, Teresa insists that the Danbury Correctional Facility in Connecticut was anything but a "country club" prison. In fact, she refers to her living area in prison the "boom-boom room" because that was where her fellow inmates went to have sex.
Teresa served her time after pleading guilty to four counts of fraud in March 2014. Teresa's husband, Joe, also entered a guilty plea and will serve his prison stint starting in March. The couple were permitted to serve time separately, so that one of them would be able to care for their four children while the other parent was incarcerated.
