Expected to be released from prison by Christmas due to receiving an early release date, the reality star plans to spend her days with her family. "Being with her children, being with her family, being with Joe…and then kind of getting back into whatever she's going to get back into," he said. "If that's television, if it's different projects, if it's getting involved with a restaurant, etc.—there are so many opportunities that she has.”

RadarOnline.com released photographs of her husband Joe Giudice on a double date with another woman. Despite the cheating claims, her lawyer insisted that the duo isn’t headed for a divorce. “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.'"

While she can’t wait to be with her family once released from Danbury, she is still very much involved in their lives. “She's able to communicate frequently through email and with respect to her telephone minutes," the lawyer said. "But those visits, you can kind of escape your reality at that time and you can be with your family, you can hug and kiss them, but at 3:30 they have to leave. That's a very sad situation, but she's dealing with it really well."
