Teresa Giudice, the star of “Real Housewives of New Jersey,” may be facing more time prison time.

The 44-year-old reality star, who was released from prison in December 2015, failed to report two traffic tickets, which violates the terms of her two-year supervised release for her fraud conviction, according to TMZ.

Giudice, who served 12 months behind bars after being convicted of fraud, made an illegal turn last year and was again ticketed in April for using her phone while driving — and failed to inform her probation officer of either ticket.

The reality star and her attorney were advised that any contact with police had to be reported. The tickets will be her last written warning, and she’ll be forced into court if she fails to report any third incident.

James Leonard Jr., Giudice’s lawyer, told TMZ that the star did report the tickets, but failed to within the ordered time frame.

“Both she and I have spoken to her officer and understand what is required should she have any contact with law enforcement, which we do not anticipate will happen,” he stated.

As “RHONJ” prepares to return for season eight, Giudice’s husband Joe is currently behind bars in Fort Dix, N.J. for his 36-month prison term, which commenced last March.

Teresa Giudice, who has four children with Joe, outlined her stint in jail with a tell-all book released in 2016 called “Turning The Tables: From Housewife to Inmate and Back Again.” She was released in December 2015.
