She's not ashamed of her heavier body either, and her husband, Joe, loves his slightly plumper wife.
"I've gained a little over 5 pounds since I've been home," she told Us Weekly. "Joe's a booty guy, so he likes it too. He's been saying the same thing that my booty has grown and he likes it."
The couple has been as frisky as teenagers ever since she was released from Danbury Federal Correctional Institution in Connecticut in December after 11 months for fraud. They've virtually been inseparable since then.
"He's been all over me since I got home," she added. "Joe wants to be together and cuddle all the time."
Really, they're just savoring their time together since it won't last. Later this month, Joe will report to prison and begin a 41-month sentence at Fort Dix FCI in New Jersey for fraud changes.
Teresa said she's far from excited that Joe is about to leave the family for an extended period of time, but she preparing for it the best she can, much like he did while she was locked up.
Teresa will simply focus on taking care of their four daughters — Gia, 15, Gabriella, 11, Milania, 10, and Audriana, 6.
She'll be back to "The Real Housewives of New Jersey," where her return to civilization will certainly be the main focus. The "Turning the Tables" author will also focus on her new yoga instructor certification experience.
"I just love it so much and I just want to learn everything about it. I'd eventually like to come out with my own yoga DVD and a yoga clothing line and maybe open my own yoga studio," she told the magazine
She continued, "I just love yoga, it's good for my body and more importantly, it's good for my mind."
For Joe, his future seems a bit murkier. He even faces the possibility of deportation.
"Anything can happen, you know? There is nothing in life that is certain," Joe told Entertainment Tonight on March 1, as he was joined by his wife. "We will deal with that when I get out."
Teresa said, "We're just taking it day by day."
"I'm going to miss sleeping with him at night and cuddling with him," she added, then joked, "I'm going to miss the passion, and I can't say any more than that."
