Joe Giudice is coming home early … but he's still going to be locked up for a while.
The incarcerated "Real Housewives of New Jersey" star got five months knocked off of his 41-month prison sentence, according to Us Weekly.
Joe reported to Fort Dix Correctional Institution in New Jersey on March 23 for conspiracy and bankruptcy fraud. His scheduled release was August 2019. Now, though, according to his inmate status with the Federal Bureau of Prisons, his release date is March 14, 2019.
Joe's prison stay comes just three months after his wife, Teresa Giudice, served time in prison for fraud charges, too. Teresa, like her husband, was released from prison early, but stayed on house arrest for several weeks.
"It has been a difficult week for us, but we're making it through, thank God," she said in a video released earlier this week. "Joe's doing as well as expected. Of course we spoke to him. And I just wanted to say thank you again from my heart for being there, and for all your beautiful tweets."
With Joe behind bars, Teresa is staying busy as the mother to their four children, Gia, 15, Gabriella, 11, Milania, 10 and Audriana, 6. She's also filming season 7 of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey."
It was also reported over the past week that she is training to become a yoga instructor. Since her release, she's posted several images of her in yoga poses. In fact, she's said that she also did yoga while she was behind bars.
She's now enrolled in a $3,500 teacher-training course at Nirvana yoga studio in Montville, New Jersey.
"She really loves it, really into it which is great," owner and instructor Elissa Lappostato told the newspaper's Page Six gossip section. "I'm definitely making a change in her."
The studio is allowing RHONJ film crews to document Teresa's training, filming roughly three or four of her classes.
On March 30, she took a break from sweating it out to check out the spring fashion presentation for her sister-in-law's Envy fashion line.
"Melissa came over and Teresa was dancing with her and [brother Joe Gorga.] Teresa was really letting loose and having a blast," a source told Us Weekly. "Teresa was dancing with friends and was pulled up onto the runway. [She was reluctant but] started to have a really good time."
