Teresa Giudice Reveals Which Colleges Have Accepted Gia

August 25, 2019 69 By Stanley Isaacs


Over the past few weeks, Teresa Giudice, one
of the stars of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, has opened up about the future of
her daughter Gia Giudice’s education, specifically, just which colleges have accepted the 17-year-old. On December 9th, 2018, Teresa Giudice revealed
on her Instagram Stories that the first college that accepted Gia was Connecticut’s Quinnipiac
University, as reported by Bravo’s The Daily Dish. Just days later on December 13th, Teresa shared
some more good news: Gia had also received acceptance letters from the University of
Alabama, Penn State, and the University of Scranton. “They call it Scranton!” “What?” “The electric city. Scranton!” “What?” “The electric city.” Teresa had previously remarked on her oldest
daughter’s education in a video for Bravo published in November 2018. “We’re looking at colleges. I’m not like trying to hold her back. Like, I want her to go and experience it. I think it’s gonna be amazing.” The reality TV star shared that Gia would
like to stay local, so she’ll likely be seeing her daughter fairly often. She also noted that Gia is, quote, “very mature,
very grounded,” and “knows what she wants.” In a video published a year earlier, Teresa
revealed that Gia was considering pursuing a career in law. “Sometimes things happen for a reason like,
you know, because of everything that Joe and I have been through, and I think that’s the
reason why she picked law. And I can’t wait to see what Gia becomes when
she gets older.” As fans of The Real Housewives of New Jersey
may already know, Teresa and her husband, Joe Giudice, were found guilty in 2014 on
charges of mail, wire, and bankruptcy fraud. Teresa was sentenced to 15 months in prison,
while Joe received 41 months. Teresa served her time behind bars first,
surrendering herself to prison for what was ultimately 11 months. After she was released early in December 2015,
it was Joe’s turn to serve his time. “You either learn two things in there. You either learn how to become a criminal
or a better person, so I’m gonna try to become a better person.” But unfortunately for the Giudice family,
Teresa and Joe’s prison sentences weren’t the worst thing to come out of their conviction. In October 2018, Pennsylvania’s York Immigration
Court announced that Joe would be deported after he’s released from prison. Immigration Judge John Ellington reportedly
ruled that Joe would be sent back to Italy after his release on March 14, 2019. Joe has lived in the United States since he
was a child. He shared on The Real Housewives of New Jersey:
Teresa Checks In: “I was a year old when I came here. My parents are citizens. My brother and sister are citizens, they were
born here. I just never thought to file for citizenship.” Gia later commented on Joe’s reported deportation
on Instagram. Sharing an old photo of herself with her dad,
she wrote: “My father is no threat to society he is one
of the most warm hearted people I know, he would never harm a soul. He puts everyone else before himself.” Noting that she and her family have lots of
plans for when Joe is released from prison, she added: “I need my father to be here. My father belongs with us and his entire family.” Maybe with Gia Giudice’s future in law, she
can help keep her family together in one country, or prevent the same thing from happening to
other families. But we’re sure that, no matter what Gia decides
to do, both Joe and Teresa Giudice will be proud of her and the future she creates for
herself. And maybe Teresa will share her daughter’s
progress on social media and on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, so we can all follow along.
