We hope you're ready to celebrate, because after weeks of anticipation, the big day is almost here.
No, we're not talking about Christmas; we're talking about Teresa Giudice's release from prison!
Months ago, we learned that Teresa would be released in time for the holidays, and now it looks like prison officials will keep their promise (without much time to spare), as several sources are reporting that she'll be a free woman again on December 23.
Teresa will have to live in a halfway house for at least 60 days, and her husband, Joe Giudice, will begin serving his 41-month sentence shortly thereafter, but for now, Teresa is worried more immediate problems.
Namely, she's concerned about the paparazzi that are sure to be lurking outside of Danbury Correctional Facility in anticipation of her release.
“Photographers are expected to begin surrounding the premises ahead of the December 23 release,” an source close to the situation tells Radar Online.
“Prison officials at Danbury Correctional Facility have been made aware that there even will be helicopters trying to get Teresa on camera coming out of there!”
The insider says Teresa has been working with prison officials to arrange a secret escape route so that the paps won't even know she's been released.
“Teresa doesn’t want this to turn into a media frenzy,” the source said.
“While this is a very happy time for her, being released, Teresa is very grateful to the prison staff for being so professional during her time beyond bars. She doesn’t want her release to create chaos for them.”
The insider says that Teresa doesn't want to the subject of any unflattering candid shots while she's leaving prison, and, of course, she;'s hoping to sell her first post-prison photos for big bucks.
Never change, Teresa. never change.
