Teresa Giudice Vow Renewal

Bankruptcy, schmankruptcy! Teresa Giudice, the supposedly “cutting back” star of Real Housewives of New Jersey blew $25,100 on her “dream dress” to renew her vows with husband, Joe Giudice.

After 11-years of marriage, three of which they spent torturing us through the television, Teresa and Joe decided they needed to prove to America that, despite all the arguments and legal issues and embarrassing situations, they are still oh-so in love by staging an elaborate vow renewal complete with an over-the- top Pnina Tournai wedding gown.

In a new interview, Teresa explains why she picked the pricey gown! “On our wedding day, I wore a gown that looked like Princess Diana’s, she describes to In Touch Weekly. “This time I wanted a gown that cost a crazy amount of money!”

Teresa tried on dozens of gowns at Kleinfeld Bridal (of Say Yes To The Dress-fame) in NYC to find the perfect re-wedding dress, explaining: “It’s not so easy to find the perfect gown a second time!”

After an exhaustive search trying on a series of hideous, garish, multi-thousand dollar dresses including: a princess ballgown, because apparently her daughters refer to their mom as “Cinderella with brown hair,” a horrific prom-style mini dress she dubbed “so Madonna in the ‘80’s,” and feathered confection that made her “feel like a Muppett;” Teresa finally settled one so over-the-top it belongs in My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding!

“They didn’t used to make dresses like this,” Teresa exclaimed of her elaborate new gown. Oh, and did I mention it cost a whopping $25,100 and the veil cost $1,140? Minor details! “I wanted something no one else has,” she explained of her reasoning behind trying to upstage Dina Manzo’s million dollar wedding spending a zillion dollars on a duvet masquerading as a dress.

Wasn’t Teresa just quoted as saying: “The love you put into a party shows how extravagant it is.” Evidently that ideology didn’t deter her from blowing some people’s entire yearly salary on a dress – but she wouldn’t be Teresa if she assigned any reservation to her spending! “It took Joe’s breath away!” (after he looked at the price tag) she gushed describing her very un-wedding day.

Below are photos of the other dresses Teresa tried on that weren’t expensive enough didn’t quite make the cut!

In other Teresa news, she also discusses her upcoming make-up line and drink line in an all new interview. As was reported weeks ago, Teresa is working on her own cosmetic line called TG by Teresa Giudice.

“I am coming out with a cosmetic line with nail polish, lipgloss, and lipstick called TG by Teresa Giudice in October,” said Teresa to StarPulse. “It’s going to be in places like CVS and Wal-Mart. So, it’s like a buy one get one free, like you buy a nail polish and you get a lipgloss free. They are packaged together.”

Teresa doesn’t end there as she is also taking a page out of Bethenny Frankel’s book by coming out with her own all natural drink line called Fabellini. “I am also coming out with and formulated my own bellini, which is called Fabellini and it will be out around the holidays. It’s all natural. I am using a gold medal champagne with natural peach puree…It’s 12% alcohol too so it will totally get you buzzed!” Let’s hope Tre’s “all natural” drink doesn’t suffer the same fate as Bethenny’s!

Moving on to tonight’s all new episode of the RHONJ! On the 17th episode on this never ending season titled “Get To the Punta,” the Garden State ladies embark on a paradise getaway to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic. Activities include a private cruise, but Kathy and Teresa soon make waves when they clash on the beach. A preview clip is below!

What do you think of Teresa’s wedding dress – hideous or elegant? Are you shocked that someone being sued for bankruptcy fraud would spend $25k on a wedding gown – to renew her vows!? Will you be buying Teresa’s products?

Non-famewhore/Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice graces yet another cover of In Touch Weekly magazine! Except this time around, she’s in a wedding dress!

The latest In Touch cover features Teresa alongside her non-famewhore husband Joe Giudice with the heading “A Wedding To Save The Relationship.” The mag reports that despite Joe’s drunken bullying, Teresa refuses to leave him, instead opting for a second wedding.

The Giudices, who filed bankruptcy back in 2009 with over $11 million in debt, spared no expenses when it came to the fairy-tale-themed wedding, which included an odd surprise appearance by celebrity Kevin Jonas.

According to In Touch, Teresa’s big day featured everything from a horse-drawn carriage to a $25,000 Pnina Tornai wedding gown. Yes, $25,000.

“I was just so happy… marriage means for better or for worse. We’ve been through a lot, and if anything, it’s just made us stronger,” said Teresa of her second wedding to Joe at Long Island’s Oheka Castle. They originally tied the knot back in 1999. “I wanted to show my girls that marriage is really important, as is being faithful to one another.”

When it comes to their sometimes rocky relationship, Teresa acknowledges while things have gotten “heated” between Joe and her in private, they always make certain to work through their problems… in bed. “We try not to go to bed angry,” she states. “We resolve fights in bed. He’ll come in and say, ‘I love you.’”

Teresa goes on to add that despite their legal troubles and financial woes, divorce is not on the table. “I don’t think divorce is an option, unless it’s over something horrible like cheating,” she confides. “Not every day is going to be peaches and cream.”

Teresa and Joe also exchanged new rings described as “elegant bands designed by Zaven Ghanimian” during their vow renewal. The couple also enjoyed a decadent five-tiered chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream, and an extravagant floral arrangement.

And just hours ago, Teresa, who was more than likely paid for this cover story and photos by In Touch, stated she wasn’t happy with the cover. She wrote on her facebook, “Not happy about the InTouch cover title & we got married in 1999, not 2000, but I love all the pictures. 8 pages! And a Jonas Bro. Crazy! And I love love loved my Pnina Tornai gown. xx.”

Perhaps not continuing to give these interviews and pose for these photos for the same magazine over and over and over again will do the trick.
