Gia Giudice


Holidays are about fambly. At least that’s what Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Teresa Guidice is claiming about her decision to spend Thanksgiving alone at Danbury Correctional Facility, where she’s serving out her eleven and a half-month sentence until December 23rd of this year. 

Teresa says she doesn’t want husband Joe Giudice and their four daughters, Gia, Gabriella, Milania, and Audriana, to visit her on Thanksgiving day because she wants the holiday to be “as normal as possible for the girls.” Normal may be in the eye of the beholder, but good on her for trying!



It seems like we blinked, and just like that, the finale of the Real Housewives of New Jersey: Teresa Checks In is here. We laughed, we cried. In a brief moral crisis, we wondered why we were laughing and crying (maybe that was just me?). But it all comes to a close now, as Teresa Giudice checks in for the last time on national TV before she is released in December from Danbury Correctional Facility.

Since Teresa has been locked up, Joe Guidice has been running the household. Which means he has been spending 100% of his time trying to control Tropical Storm Milania. After fixing a clogged sink for cutie-patootie Audriana, Joe heads outside where Milania is feeding rocks to the pond fish (because she spilled all of their food on the ground). Gabriella is attempting to discipline Milania, but she gives up quickly, knowing it’s a futile battle. Joe Gorga comments that he has to hand it to Juicy for taking care of these 4 little girls because “they’re not just normal girls; they’re tough!”   



Here we are on week two of Bravo’s 3-part series, Real Housewives of New Jersey: Teresa Checks In, and I’m feeling even more conflicted about this grand experiment of a mini series than I ever thought possible! We’re back this week with the Giudice family as they visit their Jersey Shore home for the last time (it’s gone into auction since filming). Joe Giudice also hears disturbing news from Danbury Correctional Facility, where Teresa Giudice has been “shaken down” on suspicions of harboring a cell phone – due to Gia’s tweeting on her behalf

It’s July 1: five months before Teresa’s expected release and eight months before Joe begins his sentence. Joe is fixing Milania’s hair while he reflects on becoming “Mr. Mom.” Meanwhile, Melissa Gorga shows up to take Gia, Gabriella, Milania, and Audriana to get pedicures with her daughter, Antonia. Melissa says she’s reached out to Teresa in prison, but she hasn’t heard back because “Teresa’s email chain is full.” <side eye> Melissa is still praying for her, though because she knows which side her Bravo bread is buttered on. Antonia and Milania, who have always shared a special bond, hold hands the entire way to the salon. #tendermoment 



Well, folks, the controversial three-part series catching up with the Giudice family since Teresa Giudice’s January incarceration is here. Who’s watching? Since we here at RT pledge to bring you the latest reality news – whatever that news may be – we’ll be recapping the Real Housewives of New Jersey: Teresa Checks In each week. Admittedly, this series has a lot of us questioning just how far Bravo will go to expose/support/capitalize on the misdeeds and fallout of Joe and Teresa’s crimes, as well as the sad after-effects these crimes have had on their four daughters: Gia (14), Gabriella (10), Milania (9), and Audriana (5). So, let’s take a look at how this all shakes out…

In our first shot, we’re told the series was filmed six months into Teresa’s prison sentence. Joe, who is currently without a driver’s license (due to previous suspension) counts on his side of the family to help out with the bulk of carting his daughters around, and for emotional support. As he prepares breakfast for the girls, Milania steps in to cooks the sausages. Joe says this has been the hardest year of his life with the passing of his father and Teresa’s imprisonment. He thinks Teresa is proud of his efforts at home, though, because if not, she would have probably sent him divorce papers by now.


Gia Giudice Talks Teresa & Joe In Prison on ET

14-year-old Gia Giudice, the eldest of Teresa and Joe Giudice‘s 4 daughters, is very aware of all the changes taking place in her life. As her mother prepares to return home from a year-long prison stint, Gia’s father Joe prepares to ‘go away’ to federal prison for 41 months. Following that Joe could face deportation as he is not a US Citizen. 

“It could be worse,” acknowledges Gia; trying to keep a positive attitude. “My mom doesn’t want me or anyone to get emotional, so I try my best just to keep it all together.” 

Unfortunately for Gia the reality goes beyond reality TV, but unfortunately all has been filmed for Real Housewives Of New Jersey and their upcoming spinoff Teresa Checks In which chronicles how the family is coping while Teresa is spending her lock up wiping down tables and emailing (but not reading!). 


Joe Giudice filming spinoff with daughters

Gee – I wonder if Joe Giudice‘s latest run-in with the law will be featured on the Giudice family spinoff?!

This weekend Joe’s Jersey Shore neighbor called the police on him after the Real Housewives Of New Jersey star was reportedly heard screaming at his eldest daughter Gia. Of course other sources claim that although Joe was screaming at a family member it certainly wasn’t his 14-year-old daughter! 


Joe Giudice filming spinoff with daughters

It looks like that fabled Real Housewives Of New Jersey spinoff is becoming more and more of a reality everyday! Last week Andy Cohen insisted he had no knowledge of Joe Giudice filming a special with his daughters about their lives while Teresa Giudice is in prison. Buuuut no one believed him! And it appears Joe is filming much more than a brief update, but a full-on series! 

Multiple sources, including Teresa’s attorney, have said that Joe was working with the network. Andy admitted to communicating with Teresa in prison via email. New reports reveal Joe and his daughters, Gia,14, Gabriella, 10, Milania, 9, and Audriana, 5 have been filming a multiple-episode miniseries with Bravo to share their story. 

I wonder if that includes Joe’s rendezvous with his mistress? Joe cannot drive, by the way, he had to surrender his license as part of pleading guilty to identity fraud. 



While mom’s away, the kids will play!  It’s a Gorga-Giudice pool party!  Real Housewives of New Jersey fans have been wondering if Teresa Giudice’s kids were seeing their cousins, Joe and Melissa Gorga’s kids, while she’s in prison.  It looks like we now know the answer! 

Melissa posted this photo of all seven kids – Gia, Gabriella, Milania, Audriana, Antonia, Gino and Joey – on Instagram, writing “Cousin Love.”   It so great to see the kids having a blast together.  I have a feeling that they probably see each other more than we know, but keep it off of social media.
