It's been less than a month since Teresa Giudice was released from prison, and it looks like she came dangerously close to going back.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey star, who is on (obviously lenient) house arrest and probation, attended a red carpet event Thursday evening and was trying to rush home Cinderella-style to make her 10 p.m. curfew, according to TMZ.
But instead of a pumpkin-turned-stagecoach, she took an Uber.
She reportedly instructed the driver to step on the gas, which resulted in the car getting pulled over by the po-po.
As the officer was talking to the driver, Teresa interrupted and explained that she was the one who asked the driver to speed it up.
Lucky for her, the officer was feeling generous, or maybe he was a fan, because he let them off.
The cop evidently recognized her and decided she'd had a tough enough year already.
Uber driver gets to keep his job and Teresa remains a (sort of) free woman.
The Housewife must be breathing a sigh of relief, because even though she may have had it easier than the rest of the prison inmates, she still had a rough go of it in the big house.
Maybe this close call was enough to give her a newfound appreciation of that tracking bracelet on her ankle.
One thing's for sure: she better damn well have given that Uber driver a five star rating.
