Teresa Giudice of The Real Housewives of New Jersey fame was released from prison earlier on Wednesday after completing her 11-month sentence for bankruptcy fraud.

Daughter Gia Giudice Tweeted about her mom's release.

Teresa Giudice had been in prison since January. She and her husband pleaded guilty in March 2014 to federal fraud charges. They admitted to hiding assets from bankruptcy creditors and submitting phony loan applications to get approximately $5 million in mortgages and construction loans.

On her way home, Teresa Giudice got a cappuccino--something she'd been craving while in prison.

When she arrived at her home in New Jersey, she found a $90,000 Lexus adorned with a big red bow--her Christmas present from Joe Giudice. Do you think Joe committed any crimes in acquiring the funds for that car?

Shortly after Christmas, Teresa Giudice's husband will begin serving his prison sentence, which will last 41 months.

Gia Giuduce and her younger sisters will just get their mother back when their father will leave for over three years. This will no doubt have some kind of impact down the road on Joe and Teresa Giudice's daughters.

Bravo will likely feature Teresa Giudice in a Real Housewives of New Jersey special in the near future. How long do you suppose it will be before Teresa is making money off having been in prison?

She no doubt was paid for some segments that were filmed while she was still behind bars.
