A little more than a week after her release from prison, Teresa Giudice has finally spoken out on Twitter.

But her message – her first tweet since September, to be exact – was unrelated to her experience behind bars or life post-prison. Rather, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star took to her social media account to wish her followers “a healthy and happy New Year!”

The tweet was accompanied by a family photo that featured the famous matriarch posing alongside her husband Joe and daughters Gia, Milania, Gabriella and Audriana.

Giudice, who also spent Christmas with her family following her Dec. 23 release, rang in the New Year with brother Joe Gorga and sister-in-law Melissa – who was spotted working out with the star earlier this week.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star previously wished her fans a Happy New Year in a 9-second video that was posted on Dec. 30 on

“Hi everyone, I’m back! I just want to wish everyone a Happy New Year,” she says in the clip. “It’s gonna be a great 2016. Love, love, love you all.”
