Teresa Giudice Makes First Public Appearance Since Prison!

by at . Comments

It's only been three weeks since Teresa Giudice was released from prison, and the troubled Jersey Housewife is still on house arrest.

But that doesn't mean you can keep her away from a red carpet event.

Two Giudices

Yes, with 15-year-old daughter Gia by her side, Teresa hit the town to celebrate the opening of sister-in-law Melissa Gorga's high-end shoe store last night.

“I’m doing really good,” Giudice told Us Weekly at the event. “I feel great. Family is the most important thing to me and coming here to support her and my family is amazing."

We're assuming that Teresa asked her parole officer to switch turn off her tracking bracelet for the evening. 

Of course, as is always the case when Tre is involved, the night was not without its controversies.

Many wondered about the absence of Teresa's husband, Joe Giudice, and Teresa and her daughter both rocked fur and leather, thus drawing criticism from animal rights groups.

But the biggest controversy of all surrounded, Teresa's Chanel handbag, which fashion experts have estimated to be worth upwards of $3,000.

That's not an insane amount of money for a red carpet statement piece, but given the fact that Teresa is fresh out of prison for bankruptcy fraud, and she's already been criticized for receiving a $90,000 Lexus as a homecoming present, it's a statement that rubbed many people the wrong way.

Ah, Teresa - we've missed you and your terrible decisions.
