The one good thing about going to prison – for Teresa Giudice at least – is that she got enough time before going in to plan ahead. So, a few days before going behind bars, the disgraced former Real Housewife celebrated New Years with her family, whom she won’t get to spend time with for the next 15 months.

Teresa Giudice
Teresa has been spending as much quality time with her daughters as possible over the holidays.

Teresa is set to start her sentence tomorrow, January 15. But on Wednesday night, according to Us Weekly, she was at home, with her family, getting a symbolic fresh start.

“Teresa spent New Year's with the girls and her family,” an insider allegedly told Us Weekly, adding that “Joe has been pulling special bottles of wine for her and she has been cooking a ton.”

The reality star and her husband, Joe, were convicted of financial fraud last October, but will serve their sentences in succession, so that there is always somebody at home with their four girls - Gia, 13, Gabriella, 10, Milania, 8, and Audriana, 4.

In fact, Teresa has apparently been putting in some extra quality time with her daughters over the festive season. On the 26th, she allegedly attended Gia’s 3KT holiday show on Friday, Dec. 26, as well. "She seemed very happy to be there — not sad or worried at all," an onlooker told Us of the star. "Teresa looked happy and was applauding them. She seemed really proud."
