Teresa Giudice has been behind bars since she was found guilty of fraud and she turned herself into prison on Jan. 5.

But once she is a free woman— she is set to be released on Dec. 23, 2015— she will likely return to reality TV.

Her lawyer hinted to People magazine that once a contact between Giudice and Bravo is signed, she will return to the “Real Housewives of New Jersey.”

"Anyone who has watched that show since the very first episode understands that Teresa Giudice is the central figure around which the show revolves," James J. Leonard Jr. told the magazine. "That's not to take anything away from any of the other women, but Teresa has been the focal point for the last six seasons, and I don't expect that to change moving forward, assuming both sides can agree on a contract."

He drove the point home when he mentioned “season 7” of the series while answering a question about reports that Giuidce and her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga were at odds.

"I know it is contrary to popular belief, but Melissa doesn't hate Teresa and Teresa doesn't hate Melissa," he said. "Do they see eye-to-eye on everything? Absolutely not. Show me two sisters-in-law that do.

"What you see on television are snippets of their life that are edited and pieced together to fit the format of the show. But the truth is they can and often do co-exist without any problems in their everyday lives. I think that the Teresa/Melissa dynamic makes for good television and will likely continue in season 7, but hopefully in a less dramatic fashion."

Teresa Giudice’s husband, Joe, will begin serving his prison sentence after she is released.
