OK, so they're together, but not like together together...
But -- and there's always a but -- the pair

There's no doubt Teresa Giudice's prison sentence has been difficult for her husband Joe Giudice and their four daughters.
Fortunately, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star will be released from jail for good behavior on December 23, just in time for the holidays. She will reportedly remain in the prison system under home confinement until the end of her sentence in February.
In an interview published on Monday, Joe opened up about how they will spend her free time:
"We got the holidays. We're probably going to take a trip or two with the family. I'd stay in the states, [maybe] some island close by."
After spending all of 2015 away from her family, Joe just wants his 43-year-old other half to be able to relax when she returns home:
"We're basically going to keep it small and just chill out. Whatever she wants to do when she comes home. Just being out is going to be a relief in itself and it's a couple of days right before Christmas…I'm sure she's just going to want to get organized and do whatever she wants to do."
Probably best to leave it up to her! She's the one who's been in jail, after all…
Joe has reportedly been crashing on the couch while Tre is gone, so he is understandably excited to spend some alone time back in the bedroom with his wife:
"Now I don't have to worry about the kids sleeping in my bedroom anymore or mommy sleeping with them. That's all over. It's done with."
As for what he wants Teresa to hear when she returns:
"It's good to have you home."
We're sure the whole gang will be happy to be reunited during such special time of year!
We're interested to see how this plays out — especially since Joe still has to serve his sentence for three and a half years.
