Teresa Giudice might be out from behind bars earlier than expected.

People magazine noted Thursday morning that Giudice is slated for an early release from the Federal Correction Institute in Danbury, Connecticut. The 42-year-old, who began her prison sentence Monday, was supposed to get out in April 2016. However, the prison's website now has her release date scheduled for Feb. 5, 2016.

TMZ reported Giudice turned down an offer from Bravo to film her final days at home before prison so as to not jeopardize the possibility of an early release.

Sources close to Bravo told The Huffington Post that the network had "informal" talks with Giudice about filming before prison, but nothing was confirmed.

The reality star was sentenced to 15 months in prison for bank and bankruptcy fraud in October. Her husband, Joe, was sentenced to 41 months and will begin serving his time after she is released.

The Giudices owe another $200,000 restitution payment, along with millions of dollars to creditors associated with their 2009 failed bankruptcy filling, according to NJ.com.

They listed their 10,000-square-foot Montville Township mansion for sale, and recently slashed the price to $2.999 million. They are also selling their Manahawkin beach house for $315,000 and a Lincoln Park property for $179,900, NJ.com noted.
