Holidays are about fambly. At least that’s what Real Housewives of New Jersey’sTeresa 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 ChecksIn 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). Gabriellais 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!”
It’s July 1: five months before Teresa’s expected release and eight months before Joe begins his sentence. Joe is fixing Milania’shair while he reflects on becoming “Mr. Mom.” Meanwhile, Melissa Gorga shows up to take Gia, Gabriella, Milania, and Audrianato 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’sJanuary 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 Joeand 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.

Sweet little Audriana Giudice celebrated her fifth birthday on Sunday. And Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice shared the above picture of the birthday girl, adding, “Happy 5TH Birthday to my Princess AUDRIANA!” See more pictures of Audriana‘s big day, which included a trip to FAO Schwarz and a yummy looking dessert in New York City and a Frozen-themed birthday party with family at home, below.
By no means am I Giudice supporter, but I have to admit that the pictures tug at my heart strings. I cannot help but to wonder if Teresa and Joe Giudice will be able to celebrate Audriana‘s sixth birthday with her… Milania‘s 9th birthday… Gabriella‘s 10th birthday… Gia‘s 14th birthday… In my opinion, Teresa and Joe absolutely need to serve time for their plethora of crimes, but that does not mean I don’t feel for their four girls.
Controversial and fraudilicious the Real Housewives of New Jersey stars Joe and Teresa Giudice spent some quality time with their daughters, Gia, Gabriella, Milania, and Audriana, at the beach over the weekend. Then Tre shared their pictures on Instagram. Because, of course!
Teresa posted the picture above, adding, “With my love on the beach.”
