Gia Giudice is no longer the preteen of yesterseason. She’s a grown adult now, and she wants everyone on Real Housewives of New Jersey to take her seriously.
At the beginning of season 12, Teresa‘s 21-year-old daughter confronted Uncle Joe Gorga concerning comments he made about Joe Giudice, Gia’s father. Then, in a recent episode, Gia went after Margaret Josephs, who refused to wear Teresa’s clothing line at a baseball game.
Speaking with David Yontef on the Behind The Velvet Rope podcast, Teresa’s nemesis, Kim “D.” DePaola, revealed that Gia will be in the reunion. She got the info from a “very close friend” of Teresa’s (the same source who shared that Dina Manzo was Teresa’s maid of honor).
“[Gia is] going to be on the reunion cause she’s got something to say about the, you know, about the season because you’re seeing a lot of her.”
“Remember,” said Kim. “Teresa’s sitting down, talking to her on the floor about her love bubble and what the girls all said to her and how she went in hot.”
Kim also addressed the rumor that Gia is getting a salary for the show now, saying, “Gia comes in as her little bodyguard when she’s walking into the baseball thing. Gia [also] went at Joe Gorga. I mean, Gia is a paid ‘friend.'”
According to the store owner, “Gia is probably making more than Tracy Lynn Johnson.”
Kim also hinted at trouble in paradise concerning Teresa and her fiancé, Luis Ruelas. “I also heard from her camp that he’s getting cold feet about the wedding. Now, how true that is? I don’t know. But every single thing this person has said to me has been true.”
“I didn’t hear it with my own ears and see it with my own eyes,” she said. “But I personally think Mr. Ruelas… thought that he was the Teflon Don. Thought that he could come on this show and no one was going to find out his crap. Well, that’s not what happens. You know, this we’ve discussed… Every day another lawsuit is dropped.”
She then explained, “I guess, because of all the pressure he’s getting now with all these lawsuits, I guess he’s having second thoughts about being on a reality show.”
In Jersey, it seems everyone knows everyone. The socialite circles are small. If Teresa gets her hands on Kim’s mysterious source, perhaps viewers will witness another table flip.
