Early Release Denied? ‘RHONJ’ Star Teresa Giudice Will Reportedly Serve Full-Term

An early release will reportedly not be given to the star of The Real Housewives of New Jersey.

Teresa Giudice has reportedly been denied an early release from the Danbury, Connecticut, federal institution, where she is currently serving a 15-month term for crimes of bank and wire fraud. According to an April 22 report by Life & Style, via Radar Online, Joe “screwed everything up” for wife Teresa’s possible early release, and she will now be forced to remain behind bars until early 2016.

“Teresa and Joe had a deal on the table that would reduce Joe’s sentence and get Teresa out early. [Teresa] was expecting to be out in time for the full holiday season, and even thought there was a chance she’d be home for summer. She thought she’d be able to be under house arrest until the end of her sentence in February, and be home with the kids.”

Although no early release date had previously been given, Life & Style‘s source claimed the reality star could have been granted an early release if it wasn’t for her controversial husband, Joe.

“As usual, Joe screwed everything up. He met with the feds and the whole thing fell apart during those meetings because of the things he said. So now the deal is off the table. [Teresa] is going to be sitting in prison for the rest of her sentence.”

Prior to talk of her early release, Teresa and Joe were given prison time during an October, 2014, hearing. During sentencing, Teresa received a 15-month term, while husband Joe was dealt a 41-month term. Because of the couple’s four children, the judge on their case allowed the couple to serve their prison terms staggered, so that the children would never be away from both parents at the same time.

As the Inquisitr previously reported, Joe is reportedly in talks to star in his own reality show, which would give fans an inside look at his life without Teresa. However, according to a Radar Online report, Joe didn’t want to be featured in a reality show. Their source claimed the Real Housewives of New Jersey star agreed to do the show because he and his girls needed the money (the family has two homes in foreclosure).

Without an early release, Teresa Giudice will likely be released from custody in February of 2016, although that hasn’t been officially confirmed at this point.
