RHONJ star Teresa Giudice must surrender herself to a federal prison one week from today to begin serving her 15-month prison sentence and the Bravo star is spending her last days of freedom with her family and friends.
“The Giudice family celebrated a ‘quiet, intimate’ Christmas at home with only relatives and close friends, E! News reports. “Presents for the girls were not over the top and completely normal. In fact, Gia received Pink by Victoria’s Secret clothing and a pair of Michael Kors sunglasses.”
“For Teresa, it’s all about savoring this time with the people she loves,” the insider shared. “I think she’s going to spend every last minute she can with her family.”
Gia tweeted the above photo of her and her parents, writing, “Merry Christmas Eve!” She also followed up on Christmas Day, tweeting,Â “So thankful for my amazing family.”
Teresa and her husband Joe went out Friday night to support their daughter Gia, and her band 3KT while they performed at iPlay America in Freehold, New Jersey. Teresa was said to be all smiles as she cheered for Gia and her bandmatesÂ Cristianna and Alexa.
Saturday, Teresa hit the slopes with her RHONJ co-stars Nicole Napolitano and TerEsa Aprea. The ladies tweeted the photo below from Crystal Springs Resort. They spent the day skiing on the slopes and the evening drinking wine by the fire.

As for her looming prison sentence, the insider tells E!,Â “She wants [her daughters] to be as affected by this as little as possible.Â Right now, it’s all about spending time with her real friends and her family.”
