Just in time for the holidays, Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice is out of jail after spending nearly a year behind bars.
Teresa, who was sentenced to 15 months back in October 2014 for fraud, gave herself a makeover in a prison bathroom during her release and sipped a cappuccino as soon as she got into a waiting car, People.com reports. "Prison was tough for her," a source told People, "but she made the best of it."Teresa is hardly the first female celebrity to go to jail…and she probably won’t be the last. Here are a few you may have forgotten about:
Martha served five months in jail in late 2004 and early 2005 for insider trading. At a conference last year, Martha called her prison sentence “a very difficult, nasty situation.”

She later told TV Guide that jail “was an amazing experience. I wouldn't take it back for anything.”
KhloÃƒÂ© hit the slammer for a whopping three hours back in 2008. She was sentenced to 30 days in jail for violating probation after a 2007 DUI arrest (she didn’t complete roadside cleanup duty and enroll in an alcohol education class), but just had a quick visit due to overcrowding issues.
