Teresa Giudice is an American reality television personality best known as one of the stars of the reality series The Real Housewives of New Jersey.
Giudice is a true Jersey girl born and raised. Her parents emigrated from Italy and raised both Teresa and her brother Giuseppe, in an Italian Catholic home. She grew up in Paterson, New Jersey, where she met her “juicy” husband, Joe.
The couple played house together as children and now own their very own dream house and have been married for more than ten years. Joe, an entrepreneur, owns several successful businesses throughout New Jersey.
Teresa is a true housewife, if there ever was one, devoting herself to her four beautiful daughters — Gia, Gabriella, Milania and baby Audriana — and managing the household.
She shuttles her girls to dance, gymnastics, acting, voice and guitar lessons, while always making sure her home is beautiful and there is homemade dinner at the table each night — all without the help of a nanny, housekeeper or personal assistant.
Before becoming a housewife, Teresa earned a degree in Fashion Marketing and Management from Berkeley College. She worked in the fashion industry in New York as an associate buyer for Macys before deciding to stay home with her children.
She is the owner of TG Fabulicious, an online boutique. Her first book, Skinny Italian, a lifestyle title that teaches authentic, healthy Italian cooking with over 60 recipes straight from Salerno, was released in May 2010.
