Teresa Giudice, who was released from federal prison in December after serving 11 and a half months on fraud charges, is returning to reality television and the spotlight, appearing in an exclusive "Good Morning America" interview that aired Tuesday.

Bravo announced Monday that Giudice, 42, will rejoin the cast of "Real Housewives of New Jersey" for Season 7, along with series veterans Melissa Gorga and Jacqueline Laurita.

The new season will follow Giudice as she attempts to rebuild relationships with family and friends after her release from prison. The episodes will also show her preparing for the departure of her husband, Joe, who is set to serve 41 months in prison starting in March.

"I am very excited to be back," Giudice told Bravo's "Daily Dish." "For me, this season is all about letting go of the past and embracing the future. People are calling me Teresa 2.0."

Giudice served most of her 15-month prison sentence at the Federal Correctional Institution-Danbury in Connecticut for offenses that included conspiracy to commit wire fraud and bankruptcy fraud, ABC News reported.

Joe Giudice, 43, will serve his time for federal crimes that include hiding assets, submitting fake loan applications, and failing to pay taxes.

The reality star told ABC that her new book, "Turning the Tables: From Housewife to Inmate and Back Again," will chronicle her time in federal prison as well as her life before.

"I'm an open book so I'm going to share my whole life," she said on "Good Morning America."

Teresa Giudice also said she doesn't blame her husband for the legal woes that sent her to prison, adding that she has learned a valuable lesson about not trusting anyone else when it comes to understanding signed documents.

"There was legal people around us also when I signed those papers and something that happened and I'm not going to look back," she told the morning show. "Before you sign something, make sure you completely understand it and read everything."
