Could Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice be home in time for Christmas 2015? That’s what her lawyer believes.
“It looks like Teresa Giudice might not be spending the whole year of 2015 in federal prison,” Reality Tea reported on January 5. “The Real Housewives of New Jersey star’s lawyer spoke out this morning about Teresa’s last hours as a free woman and when we can expect her back home with her family.”
According to Giudice’s lawyer, James J. Leonard Jr., the Real Housewives of New Jersey star is required to serve at least 85 percent of her 15 month term, which, he claimed, meant Giudice could be a free woman by year’s end.
“We project she will be home sometime before Christmas.”
Although that would be great news for the reality star and her four children, Reality Tea pointed out that 85 percent of 15 months would take Giudice’s term into 2016.
“Teresa’s only concern going into the prison was that of her four children. She never once discussed how this was going to affect her, only how it was going to affect them. Teresa is very strong and I believe she will emerge from this entire experience stronger.”
As the Inquisitr reported, a former inmate of Danbury’s facility recently spoke out, revealing the Real Housewives of New Jersey star would likely be targeted behind bars.
“When you come into [prison] in a high-profile situation, it makes you a target,” Jody “Babydol” Gibson told Radar Online. “Teresa is a television star whose federal case involved Hollywood and money and because of that, she will be targeted from the moment she enters the doors. She will have to learn how to spend a lot of her time alone.”
“The other inmates all will know that she is famous and the way that it works in prison is that if you take out someone who is famous, than you will become famous too. To the prisoners, she is their lifeline and will represent the outside world and all of the things that they cannot have.”
In addition, Gibson claimed Giudice may not be able to receive visits from her husband, Joe.
“There is a good chance that Teresa and Joe will not be able to even see each other while they are serving their time because you are not allowed visitors from anyone who has been convicted of a felony,” Gibson explained.
