Is Teresa Giudice returning to "Real Housewives"?

An Us Weekly report claims jailbird and reality star Teresa Giudice will come back to Bravo's hit show "Real Housewives of New Jersey" after she finishes her now-shortened prison sentence in December.

Giudice, 43, was sent to prison, along with her husband Joe (also known as "Juicy Joe"), for bankruptcy fraud and conspiracy. She is currently serving time in Connecticut and was originally set to be released in February 2016.

A source said of the mother of four: "She's definitely back next season."

"Housewives" stars get prison time

Giudice is already writing a memoir, in which she will talk about prison life, including fights and prison food. Another source told Us: "She's all set to profit off her prison stint."

Giudice is arguably the star of the New Jersey spinoff of the reality show. She has written several cookbooks and has other business ventures that include an alcohol brand and a clothing line.

Earlier this year, Radar reported that Giudice was unhappy about the food in prison and a ban on hair extensions.

Her prison is the same Danbury, Connecticut, facility that inspired "Orange Is the New Black."

Tell us: Would you like to see Giudice back on "Real Housewives" again? Or perhaps on "Orange Is the New Black"?
