Teresa Giudice may still be serving out her 15-month prison sentence for fraud, but she hasn't let that keep her from spending as much time as possible with her family. Photos of the 43-year-old star of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" star recently surfaced, showing her, husband Joe Giudice, and their four children at the Danbury, Conn. prison she's currently confined to.
According to E! News the photos are from a Mother's Day visit the girls and their father made to the prison. All four of the "RHONJ" star's children are dressed to the nines with massive smiles on their faces as they pose alongside their parents. Teresa is shown sporting her olive green prison-issue outfit with a pair of brown boat shoes. Despite being behind bars, Teresa's hair and makeup were both done almost as well as they are when she appeared on "RHONJ."

This is not the first photo the family has taken together during Teresa's stay. They initially released a family portrait from the prison on April 1. The photo was featured on the cover of Us Weekly. It was taken during one of the family's many visits to the facility. But Teresa's days of visitors at the prison are just about over.
According to a statement issued by her lawyer, James J. Leonard, they were able to secure an early release date for her. Teresa will return home in December to celebrate Christmas with her family. She will then finish out the final months of her sentence on house arrest. Teresa will be officially free to return to her normal life in February 2016. Following her release, Joe will begin serving his 41-month prison sentence for similar charges.
While Teresa awaits her early release she is keeping busy in the big house. As we previously reported the cookbook author is working on yet another book. This time she is said to be writing a memoir which will chronicle her entire life from her humble beginnings to her lengthy stay in prison. She is said to have begun an early draft for the book in a journal. Her attorney released several scanned images of pages from the journal which include stories about things as mundane as what she ate that day, and as wild as who was fighting who in the cellblock.
