Teresa Giudice has made her first official statement since getting released from prison late last week.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star posted a video update to Bravo's website on Wednesday.

"Hi everyone, I'm back!" the 43-year-old reality TV star said in the video as she stood in the corridor of her family's mansion in Montville Township, NJ. "I just want to wish everyone a Happy New Year. It's gonna be a great 2016. Love, love, love you all."

Giudice was wearing a black zip-up shirt in the clip and had her hair down wavy with a middle part.

Giudice was initially sentenced to 15 months in federal prison for financial fraud, but since she was released early from the Correctional Institution in Danbury, CT, on December 23, she must serve the remainder of that time through home confinement while wearing an electronic monitoring bracelet until February 5.

Giudice has been following the rules under her parole officer since she's been home, according to Us Weekly, but she's allowed to leave the premises for significant reasons such as work obligations, doctor's appointments and family functions.

"Teresa doesn't have cabin fever at all, because she has had a steady stream of visitors stopping by offering their well-wishes. It's been keeping her busy and very happy," an insider told Us.

Giudice also gets to spend precious time with her husband Joe Giudice, who begins his own 41-month sentence in prison early next year, and their four young daughters.

"Teresa knows it will be different in two weeks when the kids are back in school and less people are stopping by, but for now she's been kept very busy inside her house," the insider continued. "Teresa is still so, so happy every day. And all her close family and friends have said they've never seen her looking so happy and thankful."
