Teresa Giudice Steps Out to Melissa Gorga's Store Opening for First Red Carpet Appearance Since Prison Release
The reality star was released from prison Dec. 23
Teresa Giudice stepped out alongside her Real Housewives of New Jersey costars to celebrate her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga’s new store, Envy By Melissa, on Thursday night in Montclair, New Jersey. The star’s daughter Gia Giudice was also there for her mother’s first red carpet appearance since returning home from prison.
Giudice, 46, was released from prison on Dec. 23 and remains on house arrest until Feb. 5, but has been able to enjoy time out with permission from her parole officer. She spent New Year’s Eve with Gorga, 36, and stepped out to the gym with her for a workout shortly after.
“This just felt like the next step, to kind of open a store,” Gorga previously told PEOPLE of opening the store after launching her HSN jewelry line last year. “It felt like the next move. It’s pretty exciting.”
Giudice spent 15-months in prison for fraud and is enjoying time with her family ahead of her husband Joe’s 41-month prison sentence, which begins in March.
