TRENTON - One of New Jersey's "Real Housewives" is set to be freed from the big house just days before Christmas.

A lawyer for Teresa Giudice tells The Record she will be released Wednesday from the Danbury Federal Correctional Institution in Connecticut. She will then head home to her husband, Joe, and four daughters in Montville, where she will be on home confinement until Feb. 5.

Attorney James Leonard Jr. says he will drive Giudice home from prison. But he declined to provide more specific details about her release.

Giudice has been at the prison since January. She and her husband pleaded guilty last year to bankruptcy fraud.

They admitted hiding assets from bankruptcy creditors and submitting phony loan applications to get some $5 million in mortgages and construction loans.
