Real Housewife Teresa Giudice is now residing at the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, Connecticut. The Real Housewives of New Jersey star arrived at the prison on Monday morning when she left her Montville Township manse with her attorney. Giudice who was convicted of bankruptcy fraud will be serving 15 months at the institution.
“I think she was anxious to get in, get this thing started, get it behind her, and get back to her family, her attorney James J. Leonard Jr. told ABC. “Her four daughters are her primary focus.”
Giudice’s oldest daughter, 13-year-old Gia took to Twitter to express her thoughts. “Support system is unreal,” she posted with the hashtag #soblessed. The aspiring pop star also retweeted a tweet from her 3KT bandmate Cristianna Cardinale who took to Twitter to share her support.
“The 2strongest girls I know and nothing’s going to change that,” she posed alongside a photo of herself with Gia and Teresa.
There is no doubt this is a stressful and sad time for Giudice and her family.
When she completes her 15-month sentence her husband Joe Giudice will begin his 41-month long sentence since the were allowed to serve separately in order for one parent to be with their daughters at all times. However, Joe Giudice could face deportation following his release as he is not an U.S. citizen.
For now, the family seems to be keeping it together and it is expected that Giudice will be seeing her family soon, possibly as early as this weekend.
