The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Tweeted for the first time since she checked herself into prison nearly five months ago.

“Thank you everyone for all of the cards, letters, and kind words of support,” Giudice, 43, Tweeted on Sunday. “I love, love, love you all xo T!”

Giudice’s last Tweet before her Sunday message was back in December, when she sent words of support to daughter Gia Giudice and her girl group, 3KT.

The reality star turned herself in to the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, Connecticut, on Jan. 5. She was sentenced the 15 months in prison and she and husband Joe Giudice were found guilt on charges of fraud last year.

Giudice’s Tweets may have been in response to a fan call-to-action to send the star cards and messages of support on her birthday on May 18.
