Teresa Giudice’s house arrest is over, officially ending on Friday.

In a statement Giudice’s attorney says, “Effective this morning, Teresa is no longer subject to the parameters of home confinement. She is now free in all aspects from the custodial portion of her sentence. The restitution has been paid in full and what remains is a two-year period of supervised release, the terms of which we will remain in full compliance with. Teresa is very much looking forward to closing this dark chapter in her life and moving forward both personally and professionally.”

As hinted above, the “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star isn’t exactly a free woman yet in all respects. She’ll still have to check in with her parole officer, and will remain under close watch for the duration of her probation. Any law-breaking could get her sent back to prison again. She nearly had one such incident last month when her Uber was pulled over for speeding as she had her driver rushing her home to make her curfew. Luckily, the cop let them off.

As Gossip Cop reported, Giudice spent less then a year behind bars for bankruptcy and mortgage fraud, beginning last February. She was released in December, just before Christmas. The reality star was able to make the best of the subsequent house arrest, getting permission to venture out for various activities.

The family still has another big challenge to face. Joe Giudice will be reporting for his own 41-month prison sentence in March. More immediately, Giudice will release her tell-all book, Turning The Tables, on Tuesday, and is expected to make her first TV interview appearance since her release that same day.
