Teresa Giudice's taking her time inside seriously!
And according to her lawyer, James J. Leonard — she's doing great. The Real Housewives of New Jersey star is apparently using this time in prison to reprioritize her life.

On Wednesday, he shared:
"She's taking care of her body, she's taking care of her mind. She's making her family's looked after. She's reprioritizing things in her life."
The controversial celebrity is almost half way through her year long sentence at the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, CT. And it looks like Teresa will be home by Christmas — Aww!
"I think she's going to emerge stronger, more focused. She's getting back in touch with her faith. She's spending a lot of time praying in there and I think the Teresa that comes out of prison is going to wow people."
But what will the TV personality's life be like post-prison — and what about those pesky cheating rumors circling husband, Joe Giudice?!
Her lawyer clarified:
"I think she's going to take it one day at a time, but her focus is, 'I want to get back to my freedom, I want to get back to my husband, I want to get back to my parents, my children, and then kind of take it as it goes.' But I expect that you'll be seeing her shortly after she comes home."
HA! Yeah, we don't doubt that one bit. We're hoping she'll focus more on family and less on her TV career!
James also reiterated that Teresa and Joe are NOT heading towards divorce — despite the suspicious double date pics that surfaced last month.
Hmm, very inneresting!
It's reported that the 42-year-old is in the best shape of her life as she's been exercising and eating well while in prision. What else is there to do?! WE KID!
But Joe, post-prison Teresa probably isn't one to cross!
Teresa, we're eager for your release and hope everything works out for you and Joe. But if you need a friendly ear to talk to let us know!!!
