Teresa Giudice: The Wedding Ring is Off!

by at .

Teresa Giudice may simply be celebrating a milestone birthday in the photos below.

Or she may be sending a pretty serious message to Instagram followers.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member is estranged from husband Joe, but for a very good reason:

He's serving time in jail for bankruptcy fraud and then may very well be deported back to Italy upon his release.

We've heard at times that Teresa therefore wants to get out of her marriage -- and at other times that she'll always stick by her man's side.

What should we believe? Perhaps our eyes, especially after checking out the images below.

Let's see what we mean...

Let's Hear from her Lawyer:
Her attorney, James Leonard Jr., told the tabloid that this outing was innocent: “Teresa was out celebrating New Year’s Eve with a large group of men and women while she was in Miami.
