On December 23, 2015, she was released from federal prison after serving 11 months of a 15-month sentence for fraud, while her husband and four daughters resided in the Towaco section of Montville, New Jersey. She is known for her extravagant lifestyle and highly publicized financial and legal troubles leading up to her prison sentence.
Her husband, born Giuseppe but called Joe, began his 41-month sentence on March 23, 2016
