If you recall, Joe is currently serving a 41-month prison sentence for tax and bankruptcy fraud.
Sources reveal that Teresa will not be seeing Joe during Christmas or the entire holidays, following his recent move to a new prison in Pennsylvania.
“Joe was recently, right around Thanksgiving, moved to a federal prison in Pennsylvania,” a source close to Teresa tells PEOPLE. “It takes about four to six weeks for visitors to be approved, so she will unfortunately not be able to see him before Christmas, but her hope is that immediately after she gets back from her trip, she will be able to see him once her visiting form is approved.
And despite those pesky divorce rumors that refuse to go away, the insiders insist all is well in the Giudice marriage.
“They speak multiple times a day over the phone,” the source claims. “He’s emailing people all day long. Emails with each of the girls, separately. He is in good spirits and he’s happy and even happier where he is than where he was. This facility is better suited to him … he seems more upbeat since having moved.”
One piece of good news for Teresa is that her father, who was recently rushed to the hospital due to pneumonia, is doing much better and is now back home resting. Much needed good news as this will mark Teresa’s first Christmas without her mother who sadly passed away earlier this year.
