Melissa Gorga, Dina Manzo, Jacqueline Laurita, And Andy Cohen Post Happy Messages Upon Teresa Giudice’s Release

Teresa Giudice is now back at home after spending almost a year in prison. As reported by the Daily Dish, Teresa, driven by her lawyer, James Leonard Jr., arrived at her Montville, New Jersey, home shortly after 7 a.m. after being released from the Danbury Correctional Facility at 5:01 a.m. She was greeted by her husband, Joe Giudice, and their four daughters. Tomorrow, Teresa and her family will head to her brother and sister-in-law’s house for a traditional Feast of the Seven Fishes dinner.

Melissa Gorga certainly seems very happy that she’ll be celebrating Christmas Eve with her sister-in-law tomorrow night. Melissa posted a tweet stating that Christmas brings miracles. While Melissa did not specifically name Teresa in her tweet, it’s likely that she was talking about Teresa since she posted the tweet the day Teresa arrived home.


Some of Teresa’s other The Real Housewives of New Jersey co-stars also posted happy messages. Early Wednesday morning, Dina declared it to be a happy day.


As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Dina, who moved to Southern California after Season 6, is currently spending the holidays on the East Coast. Throughout their time together on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, while other relationships have faltered, Teresa and Dina have remained good friends. Over the weekend, Dina posted photos of herself spending time with her goddaughter Audriana, Teresa’s youngest child. Perhaps Dina will also see Teresa over the holidays.

Andy Cohen posted a message that welcomed Teresa home.


In response to viewers who criticized Andy for promoting a criminal, Andy said that Teresa deserves a second chance.


Teresa’s oldest daughter, Gia Giudice, also posted a welcome back message.

People published photos of the family reunion. It also reported that a brand new black Lexus with a giant red bow on top was waiting for Teresa in the driveway, a Christmas present from Joe Giudice.


Late Tuesday night, Jacqueline Laurita posted a quote about letting go of the past and focusing on new beginnings.

“A new chapter of life begins for you today. Say goodbye to your past and for the future, pave the way. Full of anecdotes, let a new story unfold. Smile, laugh, share and cry…be carefree and bold.”

With her message, Jacqueline may not simply be advising Teresa to let go of what she experienced in prison. Perhaps Jacqueline is also expressing hope that she and Teresa will completely let go of the drama that happened between the two of them and once again be good friends. Jacqueline and Teresa used to be such good friends that they spoke at length every day. Yet by the end of Season 5, after a lot of arguments, their friendship seemed to be truly well and over.

However, on Season 6, during which Jacqueline appeared in a few episodes as a friend of the housewives, Jacqueline cried upon learning of Teresa’s prison sentence. When Jacqueline fretted over whether she should send Teresa a text, since Teresa has been unresponsive to her, Kathy Wakile, Jacqueline’s friend and Teresa’s cousin, told her not think about the past but focus on the present. Kathy, who has a fractured relationship with Teresa herself, has yet to publicly comment on Teresa’s release.


Will Jacqueline Laurita and Kathy Wakile will be able to mend things with Teresa Giudice on Season 7 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey? As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Deason 7, which has already started filming, will reportedly feature Melissa Gorga, Teresa, and Jacqueline as starring housewives. Kathy, her sister Rosie Pierri, and a few new women will appear as friends of the housewives. On Monday, Melissa, Jacqueline, Kathy, Rosie, and the new cast members all attended a Christmas party that may have been filmed for the show.
