Teresa Giudice is out of prison, but she's still confined to New Jersey thanks to a strict house arrest agreement. But RadarOnline.com has learned the Real Housewives of New Jersey star is counting the days until she will be able to go to New York City to promote the release of her new book, Turning the Tables: From Housewife to Inmate and Back Again with a full-on media blitz!
Giudice, 43, will be off house arrest on February 5, with the release of the book just four days later, on February 9.
An insider told Radar, "Teresa is so excited to promote the book and leave the state of New Jersey! She hasn't been to New York City in over a year and misses it."
And she'll be returning in style: "She will be doing a full promotional tour for the memoir, which she wrote while behind bars," said the source. "Expect to see Teresa on GMA, Bravo, and other media."
"There also will be book signings scheduled at all the hottest spots. More than anything, Teresa is so grateful for this second chance and to interact with her fans," the source explained.
As Radar reported, Giudice happily reconciled with her family just a few weeks ago, but is already making arrangements to visit her husband Joe, 43, in prison. He begins his 41-month sentence at Fort Dix, in New Jersey, in just a few weeks and she is already applying to be added to his visitor list.
"Teresa doesn't want there to be any delay in seeing Joe from the time he begins serving time," the source previously said.
Gallery Books is publishing Teresa's book, which can be pre-ordered at Amazon for $19.54.
