Can you feel the love, love, love? Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice, who was released from prison last week after 11 months behind bars, spoke out for the first time since returning home in a new Bravo video on Wednesday, December 30.
In the clip, the reality star stands in the corridor of her family's mansion in Montville Township, New Jersey. She wears a black zip-up and has her wavy styled tresses parted down the center.
"Hi everyone, I'm back!" the reality star, 43, says in the video. "I just want to wish everyone a Happy New Year. It's gonna be a great 2016. Love, love, love you all."
As Us Weekly exclusively reported on Wednesday, Giudice has been playing by the rules and following all orders from her parole officer. A source told Us that Giudice is abiding by home confinement guidelines, and has an ankle monitor to document her whereabouts. However, she's allowed to leave the premises of her home for specific reasons, including work obligations, doctor's appointments, legal meetings and certain family functions.
The insider added that the confinement will be in effect until February 5, 2016. Nevertheless, Giudice is relieved to be home with her husband, Joe Giudice, and their four daughters. "Teresa doesn’t have cabin fever at all, because she has had a steady stream of visitors stopping by offering their well-wishes," the source told Us. "It’s been keeping her busy and very happy. Teresa knows it will be different in two weeks, when the kids are back in school and less people are stopping by, but for now she’s been kept very busy inside her house."
She's also carrying her happiness into 2016. "Teresa is still so, so happy every day," the insider said to Us. "And all her close family and friends have said they’ve never seen her looking so happy and thankful."
