Teresa Giudice is reinventing herself once again – this time with body building. She’s gone from Joisey Housewife, to unhinged super villain, to cookbook maven, to prisoner, from zen yogi, and now she’s found weight lifting and hopes to inspire other women through her body transformation.
At 46 the Real Housewives Of New Jersey star recently competed in a bodybuilding competition and came in third place. Teresa reveals that she’s “never felt so confident” or so proud of her body. “I love the way my arms and back look. All my clothes are big on me,” she adds.
“My body drastically changed because of yoga, but this was even more extreme,” Teresa shares. “It debunks the myth that if you’re over 40, you can’t look good.”
Teresa found weightlifting because she was looking for ways to grieve the loss of her mother and her husband Joe Giudice‘s incarceration. She was already devoted to yoga, but wanted something more.
“It was something I’ve always wanted to do — for myself. I’ve gone to the gym since I could drive. I wanted to see my body transform,” Teresa tells Us Weekly. “I also wanted to show my daughters that if you put hard work and time into something, you can achieve anything.”
Teresa has always had a thing for beefcakes – hence the way Juicy looked when they first started dating. Remember he was a bodybuilder. Apparently he’s been lifting a lot in prison so maybe they can do a his & her’s competition when he gets out!
Well, Teresa certainly looks great, and I definitely don’t want to see how far she can flip a table with those biceps! Watch it ladies.
