“People make fun of Jersey girls, but I think they’re just jealous.”
Teresa Giudice was born and raised in New Jersey. She grew up in Paterson, New Jersey, where she met her husband of more than 10 years, Joe. Teresa devotes herself to her four daughters — Gia (born in 2001), Gabriella (born in 2004), Milania (born in 2006) and baby Audriana (born in 2009, with whom she was pregnant during the season one reunion show). After graduating from Berkeley College with a degree in Fashion Marketing and Management, Teresa worked as an associate buyer for Macy’s in New York before deciding to stay home with her children. She owns an online boutique, TG Fabulicious, and her first book, Skinny Italian, a lifestyle title that teaches authentic, healthy Italian cooking was on the New York Times Bestseller List.
Teresa Giudice is a true Jersey girl born and raised. Her parents emigrated from Italy and raised both Teresa and her brother Giuseppe (Joe), in an Italian Catholic home. She grew up in Paterson NJ, where she met her “juicy” husband, Joe. The couple played house together as children, 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 while still managing to stay “fabulous!” 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 two-year non-transferable 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, hits stores in May 2010. Her second Cookbook, Fabulicious was published in April 2011.
Teresa is proud to be from the New Jersey and happy to live and raise her kids there. She loves to entertain her family and friends while enjoying all that life has to offer.
