Teresa Giudice left lockup on December 23 with a toned body, thanks to her commitment to daily prison yoga sessions. But a source close to the Real Housewives of New Jersey star reveals exclusively in the new issue of Us Weekly that Giudice, 43, thinks her face looks “haggard and 10 years older.”
The Bravo star blames the stress of her 11-month sentence for fraud, served at a facility in Danbury, Connecticut, which kept her from her usual beauty routine (ahem, Botox).
“She’s especially concerned with laugh lines by her mouth,” says the insider. “She wants her old face back.… She’s eager to get Botox and fillers.”
She’ll have to wait to make any vanity-related outings. On house arrest at her Towaco, New Jersey, home until February 5, Giudice must wear an ankle monitor that would be set off even by a trip to the mailbox at the end of her driveway. She will be allowed to leave the house only for certain work, medical and family obligations preapproved by her parole officer.
“She also said she’s lost a lot of hair because of the stress over the past year,” adds the pal. “It is still long, but it’s thinner. She’s hoping it will come back now that she’s home.”
So the mom of Gia, 15, Gabriella, 11, Milania, 9, and Audriana, 6, called in a glam squad for the holidays. The whole family, even husband Joe, got dressed up and posed in front of their massive Christmas tree for a sweet snap that the Fabellini creator shared via Twitter January 3.
“Wishing everyone a healthy and happy New Year from our family to yours!” she wrote.
The Giudice family was joined by Teresa’s brother, Joe Gorga, and sister-in-law Melissa, as well as her parents for New Year’s. On January 1, the "On Display" singer, 36, shared a shot on Instagram captioned “About last night” of the two Real Housewives stars looking sassy and festive with friends and new RHONJ cast members Robyn Levy and her wife, Christina Flores.
Adds the source, “[Teresa’s] finally getting back to life as it was and is thrilled to be ‘almost free.’”
