Teresa Giudice is squeezing in as much family memories as she can. The Real Housewives of New Jersey star attended her daughter Gia's 3KT holiday show in Freehold, N.J., on Friday, Dec. 26, just 10 days before beginning her 15-month jail sentence for fraud. The reality star was also joined by her husband Joe and the couple's 10-year-old daughter Gabriella.
Teresa and Joe, both 42, stood in the back as their eldest child performed two songs with her girl group at iPlay America. The RHONJ vet wore all black while Joe donned jeans, a black wool coat, and a Burberry scarf.
"She seemed very happy to be there — not sad or worried at all," an onlooker tells Us of Teresa, who was wearing her wedding ring. "Teresa looked happy and was applauding them. She seemed really proud." Joe, in contrast, appeared more quiet during the set and left his wedding band at home.
Gia and her bandmates Alexa Maetta and Cristianna Cardinale played for about 40 people and did a quick meet and greet with some fans afterward. Teresa's Bravo costars were not in attendance, but she did mingle with some friends and family. A camera crew was also on hand.

Back in October, Teresa revealed to Andy Cohen that she has yet to tell her daughters Gabriella, Milania, 8, and Audriana, 5, that she is going to jail. Gia, however, has been trying to stay strong. On Dec. 24, she posted a photo of her mom and dad celebrating the holidays. "So thankful for my amazing family," the 13-year-old wrote on Christmas Day.
Teresa is set to begin her jail sentence on Jan. 5. Joe will face 41 months behind bars once his wife is released.
