Teresa Giudice won’t be seeing her husband, Joe Giudice, for Christmas this year.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star won’t be able to visit Joe, who is currently serving a 41-month prison sentence for mail, wire and bankruptcy fraud, until after the holiday season.

“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.”

Despite the holiday set-back, the insider makes it clear that Teresa and her daughters are in constant contact with Joe.

“They speak multiple times a day over the phone,” the source adds. “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.”

While Teresa and her girls will be missing Joe this Christmas season, they are surrounded by plenty of love and have some pretty fun holiday plans in works including a trip to Punta Cana.

“Her father lives with her,” the source explains. “He has been living there since March when the mother died. She’s going to obviously be with the father and the four girls, and they’re going to spend time either Christmas Eve or Christmas day or the days leading up with Joe’s family and then also the Gorga family. They’ll be bouncing around altogether. Then Dec. 26, she’s flying to Punta Cana with the girls. Her father is scheduled to go, but that’s going to be a game-time decision based on his health. He was only just recently in the hospital with pneumonia, so they’re going to play it by ear.”
To make matters worse this Christmas will be extra difficult for Teresa as it’s her first holiday without her mom, which is one of the reasons the RHONJ star wanted to get away for the holidays.

“This is going to be the first Christmas without Teresa’s mother,” the source says. “For the girls, it’s a Christmas without their father.  This is going to be a difficult Christmas for them. So it’s a little bit gloomy, and it’s one of the reasons they wanted to get out, and get a change of scenery and do all that. Hopefully, her father is better, too.”

I’m sure it isn’t easy that Teresa and the girls can’t see Joe until after the holidays but I’m sure they will email and talk on the phone during Christmas.

Are you surprised Teresa and the girls won’t be able to see Joe until after the new year? Do you think it’s good Teresa is getting away for the holidays?
