Teresa Giudice was likely happier this past Saturday than she was earlier on in the week. That’s because the Real Housewives of New Jersey star got a family visit. On Saturday, Teresa’s oldest daughter, 14-year-old Gia Giudice, tweeted about seeing her mom in prison in Danbury, Connecticut.
Gia’s tweet, composed of just two words, makes clear how much she misses her mom. She made sure to include the location of the low-security federal prison that her mom is currently in.
Several of Gia’s followers responded with encouraging messages. One person reminded her that with each time that she sees and leaves her mom, she’s that much closer to having her home. Others told her that they’re sending her and her family prayers.
As reported by People in early January, Teresa, originally sentenced to 15 months in prison, had her sentence reduced by a few months. Her release date is now currently set for February 5, 2016.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, just a few days prior to her prison visit, Gia Giudice tweeted about how happy it makes her to get emails from her mom Teresa Giudice.
In an interview with Access Hollywood in late January, Gia said that emailing her mom helps her cope with missing her.
“We can talk to her on a daily [basis] and we have access to e-mailing her whenever we want. So that’s amazing. It definitely helps with like coping with missing her and stuff.”
Gia also said at the time that her mom was doing great in prison. Yet according to a new report, Teresa is hardly doing well behind bars. For an article in the latest issue of In Touch, a source revealed that Teresa has told prison officials that she fears for her life.
“[Teresa] thinks she’s better than everyone else. She acts like the other women are beneath her, and she’s making enemies because of it. She told officials that she was afraid for her life. Once you start complaining about certain prisoners, you become a target. It would be wise of her to stop acting like she’s above everything.”
Unfortunately for Teresa, she may soon have something else to worry about: her reality TV paycheck. A source close to the production told In Touch that The Real Housewives of New Jersey is moving on without her.
“The show will absolutely go on without Teresa. No formal dates have been made for filming to begin because producers are still looking for potential new cast members.”
