Teresa Giudice has been in prison a whopping three and a half days, and she's already earned an early release. The Bureau of Prisons website now has her release date listed as Feb. 5, 2016, People reports. That's just 13 months, not the 15 she was sentenced to. It's not clear why she got those two months shaved off, but on Tuesday, her attorney talked to E! and predicted an even earlier release: "Typically, you have to do 85% of that sentence, so that calculation comes out to a little under 13 months," he said, but then he added, "Our projections are that if nothing changes with her sentence she should be released sometime in early December," which, of course, would only be 11 months, or 73% of her sentence. (Being behind bars hasn't ended one of Giudice's feuds.)
