Teresa Giudice Throws Lavish First Communion For Milania Despite Owing Creditors $13.4 Million

Milania Giudice


Despite owing creditors an insane $13.4 million dollars, Teresa and Joe Giudice threw their daughter, Miliana Giudice a First Communion fit for a princess, this weekend. The celebration was your typical “Keeping up with the Joneses” Extravaganza!!

The event was held at a catered hall with tons of people. The affair was a seated dinner, equipped with a DJ and open bar. We’re told the event was reminiscent of a big fat Italian wedding and a scene out of “The Godfather” with guido men handing over envelopes of cash no receipts to the parents. Hey mambo… mambo Italiano… hey mambo… mambo Italiano!

Teresa spared no expense, splurging on a luxurious communion gown for her precious Milania.

The dress, fit for any Bridezilla princess is embellished with tons of bling. The custom gown retails for over $1,000 according to one of the Facebook followers of the dressmaker, “Little Nikki’s” of Hohokus, NJ.

Teresa’s photographer posted the following message on her Facebook page:

“Miliana was in today for her Communion portrait. The dress was from Little Nikki’s and was absolutely stunning. Can’t wait to show you the final… Miliania is a fashionista who likes her bling, she had alot of input into her dress design…she looked beautiful!”

    wow…48 days and counting….

    • LOL! That clock is a startling reminder!!

  • nan/4

    A legal scholar I’m not, so I ask…..Can’t the government freeze their assets? They pleaded guilty already, so how do they have access to their ill-begotten money? Why are they still living in that house? Please explain that to me someone!!! Thanks…..

    Wishing a Happy Tuesday to all. 😉

    • Missy

      I agree! How is this possible??

    • Morning Nan! From my understanding once their sentenced the government will start the seizures but who knows. These two seem to keep getting lucky breaks.

      • nan/4

        Mornin’ Doc! Many years ago, my parents, my brother and I were at a very nice restaurant. There was a lovely couple seated next to us, the woman had her mink coat around the back of her chair. Two men in suits approached the table, and took her coat! She screamed “That’s mine!!” One guy flashed his badge and said “FBI….It’s OURS now.” I’ll never forget that. They left with the mink coat!

        • Morning Nan! Wow!!!! Criminals come in all shapes and forms.

          • nan/4

            Rumor had it that they might have owed back taxes….but still, why hasn’t any of the Guidice’s monies at least have been frozen? I didn’t think that the government was so lenient, you know?

          • I completely agree with you and it sends a poor message to the public. But I’ve never heard of the feds seizing one item in a restaurant like you described. Seems fishy on the part of the feds.

          • noarguingwithstupid

            It seems fishy to me that the IRS has not started seizing from these apes!!!

          • nan/4

            Exactly NAWS!!!

          • nan/4

            This isn’t the only time I know that the Feds have seized things of value from people who owed on their taxes. It’s just the only time I saw it happen right before my eyes! It was like being in an episode of “Dragnet!” :-/

          • Yeah and in a restaurant? And they only seized one item? Seems odd indeed.

      • noarguingwithstupid

        I have never heard of the IRS being that patient!!!

    • Dave

      Bravo needs to shut her out of production, she has plead guilty which implies that by doing that she knowingly defrauded and stole money. Criminals should not be glorified on the Real Housewives series. Will they sink to filming her while on house arrest or jail visits? Bravo needs a wakeup call as much as Theresa and Joe.

    • noarguingwithstupid

      Nan, who knows?? I think the IRS is just acting a sham!!! They have done nothing to these apes since they arrived!!! These are obviously people who the IRS is afraid of and will never touch an asset!!!! (You or I try it, and see how long it would last???)

      • nan/4

        IKR??? How ya’ doing today NAWS? I hope you’re having a good day. 🙂

        • noarguingwithstupid

          I’m ok Nan–Thanks for asking!! Good to see you here!!

          • nan/4

            It’s always nice to see you….. 😉

    • twifan2

      HAPPY TUESDAY to you too, nan! 🙂
      48 days to go! 🙂

      • nan/4

        Hi Twi! I hope the pollen count has gone down for you! Nice to see you, honey.

        Be well! 😉

  • Birdie11

    Nothing says remorse like an extravagant, gaudy, show off fest. Antonia dressed and posing like a 25 year old is unsettling. I hope the feds take note of their gleeful comfort in spewing out the pricey details for all to see.

    • nan/4

      Mornin’ Birdie. I hope you have a very nice day, my dear. 🙂

      • Birdie11

        Hey Nan!! Happy Tuesday…I am blowing off planned drudgery and heading to the beach! You have a great day too! 🙂

        • nan/4

          Good for you! I LOVE the beach! Have lots of fun but don’t forget to use your sunscreen! 😉

          • Birdie11

            Always Mom! TY! 😀

    • Happy Tuesday my sweet Birdie.

    • Vince Foster, Jr.

      Teresa is going to express her “remorse to the judge” so I guess she is not going to express it to the public

  • Norrth

    I think Milania was always her “camera time” child so she was always treated as special (the Milania hair care line, for example). Is there one or two younger children? What happens during that last child’s communion? Sad that a communion has been turned into a show;

    • Sara

      Teresa has always placed Milania on a pedestal. She named her haircare products after her and loves to put her bad behaviors on display. Milania is her favorite.

  • cutie pie

    since I don’t believe in commenting on children’s looks, I’m abstaining from commenting further…

    • Sara

      Funny….I try to be like you but…

    • Vince Foster, Jr.

      Teresa doesn’t believe on commenting on children’s books since she can’t read.

  • noarguingwithstupid

    Cutie, I agree with you. However, Treape has always exploited her children–that’s the way she rolls!!! I can’t believe Treape took a very special fambly day and turned it into a fricking fiasco, but then that’s Treape!!! It’s a shame she pulls in her children to further provoke all situations!! Where is the taxman when he is needed????

  • Dave

    Bravo should be ashamed of keeping this admitted felon on the payroll for ratings. Andy Cohen is a pimp and NBC is disgusting for rewarding these criminals.

    • noarguingwithstupid

      No props allowed, but convicted felons, NO PROBLEM!!

      • Dave

        Andy Cohen is a pimp. That’s a great comparison.

  • noarguingwithstupid

    A custom made Communion dress, for a CHILD!!!!, is almost a sacrilege!!! And how much was that custom cake?????? Why not one of Treape’s homemade, or why not just a bakery cake???

    • Dave

      It’s displays like this that leave me little compassion for the kids.

      • noarguingwithstupid

        Without the kids, there would not be much to write about or exploit!!

        • Dave

          I agree…She is one dumb bitch…but smart enough when it comes to money !

      • noarguingwithstupid

        The adults (apes) in charge have elected to exploit their children!!!!

    • Sara

      Teresa’s statement that they “were protecting and keeping their daughters of the limelight”,etc? I guess that its okay if they are “used” as pawns for you on your show, though? Are we to feel sorry for you as we are witnesses to your daughter’s tears? Gia’s statement to daddy dearest that she’s going to be a criminal lawyer when she grows up…all I can think of is pure mob/mafia lifestyle AND the fact that Gia has clearly been told that mommy and daddy are being railroaded or having their rights violated. Instead of being HONEST with your children, you have clearly painted yourselves as victims. Way to go, idiot thieves!!

      • Marsbars09

        Those kids are going to be screwed adults for sure.

        • AGREED! Especially Gia. I’m afraid of what’s to come for her in the next few years.

          • noarguingwithstupid

            Doc–Gia probably will grow up to be just like Mommy Ape!

          • Sadly yes. I suspect she’ll suffer some hardships due to how she’s learned to cope with problems.

          • noarguingwithstupid

            Children usually learn what they live!!!!! And these kids are learning too much, too fast!!!! Treape probably aspires to be a “friend” instead of a mother to her kids!!

        • noarguingwithstupid

          Especially if one of them wants to be a criminal lawyer!!

      • MorningYawn

        Didn’t Meadow Soprano want to be a criminal lawyer? Hehehe

        • Sara

          Yes….that’s exactly what ran across my mind after she said that.

  • Sara

    Good story. This season is gonna suck without Caroline, Kathy and Jaclyn. Especially with Melissa’s new ego taking center stage. Also don’t care about Dina anymore. She’s too annoying.

    • noarguingwithstupid

      Dina the zen has always been and will forever be BORING!!! The only think she had going for her was the wrinkled kitty and now the kitty is gone!!! Remove Zen!!!! She is a laugh!!

      • Sara

        Agreed…Dina, can’t stand, she’s her hypocrite and a liar.

      • twifan2

        Hi Hi NAWS! 🙂
        How’s youses today?
        Have to leave in a bit. Meeting(s). :'(

        • noarguingwithstupid

          OK I will probably be on here when you are finished!!

          • twifan2

            Kool! 🙂

  • twifan2

    You can bet none of that $$$ in the envelopes was/will be reported to the IRS! >(
    IF it is, it’ll be for 1/5 the actual amount!

    • Marsbars09

      Doesn’t that money count as gifts to Milania?

    • noarguingwithstupid

      Twi, the IRS has decided to do nothing!!! If they were, they would have done it by now. It’s all a big laugh, on us!!!!

  • WestCoastFeed

    Dina tweeted the best pic of Milania. Can someone post it?
    Dina’s best attribute may be her photography. I can’t think of anything else she does as well.

    • twifan2

      This one, WCF?
      Pretty.

      • WestCoastFeed

        Yes twi, thanks. That’s it.

      • noarguingwithstupid

        If a child’s family cannot afford a custom-made communion dress, are they ostracised in this community????? This is sick, really, really, sick!

        • WestCoastFeed

          And take a look at that cake NAWS. How much did that cost? Or was it made by the same bakery that makes Teresa’s cookies and given for free?

          • noarguingwithstupid

            West, that cake probably costs more than most wedding cakes costs!!! I guess the days of homemade cakes are out of the question, unless you are Kathie W.!!!!!!

          • noarguingwithstupid

            New Jersey Hillbillies, if I have ever see them!!

  • Vince Foster, Jr.

    Teresa gets upset when you point people to the old Fabellini account.

    @_Fabellini_ @Teresa_Giudice @FabelliniWine— Vince Foster, Jr. (@JustTheFactsNJ) May 20, 2014

  • WestCoastFeed

    Poor little Audriana. In 3 or 4 years, when it is time for her first communion, where are the dollars going to come from to give her a lavish party like this? Especially with Daddy still in prison.

    • Marsbars09

      Yes. It looks like poor Audriana is going to miss out.

      • noarguingwithstupid

        Maybe she will be lucky and have a normal fambly celebration!!!

    • noarguingwithstupid

      She’ll be the luckiest of all if Daddy is still in prison–Maybe then Mommy can move out of fantasyland and into the real world.

    • Birdie11

      She will look back on it and be able to appreciate the genuineness of it…not all the meaningless crap her parents made it about. I think she will appreciate it as an adult, and will be thankful, not to mention better adjusted.

  • noarguingwithstupid

    Melissa’s boys look tragic in their shirt, ties, shorts and FLIPFLOPS!!! She’s a hillbilly, just like her sister-in-law!!

    • Marsbars09

      Hi NAWS! They usually have the boys dressed sharp. What happened?

      • Morning Marsie!!

        • Marsbars09

          Hi Doc!

          • Hi honey…hope you’re having a fab day!

      • noarguingwithstupid

        Hard to believe, I know, but there are hillbillies everywhere, even in NJ!!!

    • Morning Naws! Hope you’re well today love!

  • Vince Foster, Jr.

    They are such wonderful parents.. They carry photos of the kids when the dump them while they are out on the town: If only you could read Joe’s mind.

    Great times! Bday Celebration w my favorites. Happy Bday Joe & @Teresa_Giudice! Love u both #rhonj #jersey #nyc pic.twitter.com/JJgeSQ1CkX— Steve Y. Gardner (@SteveYGardner) May 20, 2014

      Oh, lookie, lookie, It’s the Meatball Co. photo exploitation of the girls.

      • Vince Foster, Jr.

        He should be holding up his booking number!

        • noarguingwithstupid

          For practice sake anyway!!!!

      • LOL! I caught that too.

  • Marsbars09

    Disgusting. Dispicable. Deplorable.
    How many more days to these a-holes sentencing?

    • 48 days to sentencing.

      • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

        LOL. But how many hours and seconds???

        • LOL…..Hey Lady! 🙂

          We’re all counting down the minutes…July 8th can’t come quick enough.

          BTW….I’m starting to feel more confident about Tre getting prison time. I PRAY I’m wrong about the house arrest but my gut feeling still lingers 🙁

          • Birdie11

            I am hoping that a display like this one is making it evident that prison time is a must if you want her to have even half a clue. Hey Suessicans (:.

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            Hey hun! Well, I will be absolutely gobsmacked if she doesn’t do time. And the way they have flaunted more and more extravagance even with them owing all this money? She’s also just so clueless–like the money in the paper bags–all cash, no receipts. That is NOT going to sit well with a judge. If she does no time, I will truly believe the court is corrupt and was bought–because NOWHERE else would she walk away with HA or Probation.

            I ‘m SO looking forward to July 8. I’ll be at the beach then–with my iPad in hand, checking in here with all of you. We have a date that day, right?

          • Sounds like date to me, don’t forget the wine, I’ll bring the deets! xoxo

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            I’ll bring wine too! And I so hope we have real cause for celebration!!!

  • noarguingwithstupid

    If I lived in NJ I would be calling my House Rep EVERY day, demanding why the IRS is not doing their job!

  • WestCoastFeed

    Well, the good news here is that Melissa and Teresa are now getting along. Maybe Tre will even consider having Mel and Joe take the kids. Judging from how well behaved the Gorga kids appear to be, they might be the best family to take them in.

    • noarguingwithstupid

      West, I love you, but it’s NEVAH gonna happen!!!

      • WestCoastFeed

        Probably not, but what are the Giudice relatives like? I fear just carbon copies of Juicy.

        • noarguingwithstupid

          I think you are spot on!!

  • noarguingwithstupid

    The more I read this article and look at the pics, I wonder what kind of parallel universe these idiots are living in!!!!

    • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

      They live in Frauduland.

  • MorningYawn

    How is an 8 y/o allowed to have input into the designing of a $1k dress? That she will wear once. You know she will shred that thing up at the thought of Audriana wearing it. And it will tight financial times when A has her 1st communion!

    • WestCoastFeed

      Gabriella will have to let Audriana wear her dress. From what I’ve seen of Gabby I don’t think she would have a problem sharing.

      • MorningYawn

        Imagine Milanias behavior at that event, which will be a cookout if they are lucky. She will hate to see Audriana being the center of attention… I her used dress, in the backyard of their used house… But yes, I agree Gab will share. She seems so out of place in that family… Sweet and normal!

        • WestCoastFeed

          Hot dogs and hamburgers on the barbecue. The adults will be drinking all that unsold Fartellini that never sold because it tastes like Kool-Aid.

  • frankswif3y

    Wendy Teresa’s PR maven has already given an “Exclusive” to another blogger about why Teresa didn’t attend the upfronts. Apparently it was a “mutual decision” by Teresa’s ppl and bravo. AKA her AZZ wasn’t invited! LOL. Too much bad publicity and I don’t blame them!

    • WestCoastFeed

      Do you think that maybe Bravo had reservations about their advertisers having to mingle with convicted felons?

      • frankswif3y

        That’s my opinion. Since Wendy said it was a “mutual decision”, to me that means they didn’t think it was smart to invite her. If her legal team had decided she shouldn’t go then it would be her decision but I really don’t think Bravo thought it was smart to invite her in the 1st place.

  • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

    Can these slimy people stoop any lower? I hope Judge Salas is taking notes. Think I might have to send her a memo. I’ll start it out, “Hey Judge Salas, Pay Attention PUH-LEASE. Dese two nimwits iz livin it up whiles dey owes da BIG BUCKS!!”

    • WestCoastFeed

      I’ve been wondering if Bravo is waiting until after the sentencing to premiere the season, just because Bravo knows there is footage that could negatively impact the judge’s sentence.

      • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

        I actually think you may be right. These two dimwits are such morons that they don’t even know when they are doing things that look bad. Like having this party–in light of all the millions they owe. What would be smart would have been to have a VERY low-key event–but spending this money lavishly makes them look like they have learned nothing.

        If they get off without prison time, I will be convinced that they bought the judge. New Jersey is pretty corrupt.

        • WestCoastFeed

          Fortunately she is a Federal judge and far less likely to be corrupt. While I don’t expect a long sentence for Teresa, I do think she get something like Martha Steward did–like 6 months in prison followed by 6 months of house arrest.

          • Vince Foster, Jr.

            From your mouth…

            I fear that she will get no jail time and she will blame Joe for everything. Joe figures that he can’t save himself so he might as well take the fall for Teresa. I think is whole scam was Teresa’s idea.

          • Zoe D.

            It could have been…she loves money and the lifestyle that much. I wouldn’t doubt it.

      • noarguingwithstupid

        Since when does Bravo care two hoots what the judge’s sentence is??? They are convicted felons and Bravo LOVES them enough to keep them on their payroll!!

    • Zoe D.

      lmao…that should make Teresa go ape sh@t…last time Danielle used that phrase…she flipped a table.

      • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

        I’d love to see her flip the table at sentencing and call the judge a “prosecution WHOOR-ER!”

    I hear the jail bells ringing for them—its not coming soon enough for these crooks..
    Its just a slap in the face, with all the creditors they owe.. Only in USA can this crap go on..
    These are two people that care less about anything but themselves and showing off.
    I don’t recall having none of the above.. White dress with a chapel white lace on my head..
    broke ass folks sure know how to show off……Its like wearing designer clothes and living in a shack.. Make no sense at all.. JMHO

    • Marsbars09

      Well said, Samra. I can’t wait to see these hoods catered from public view.

      • SAMRA1116

        They are worst than hoodrats —- atleast they need the money, but these two are just shameless. Those girls are going to feel the wrath of their dumb ass crooks for parents. They keep washing everyone face with it.

        • Marsbars09

          Yes indeed.

  • Zoe D.

    Roflmao@Guido men handing over envelopes…that was too funny! When will this woman learn?!? *smh* I heard on twitter not too long ago that she was buying a restaurant…wtf…how? I would be embarrassed to throw something so extravagant knowing the world knows I’m in deep financial sh@t! Has she no shame??? Oh well…I guess not.

    • WestCoastFeed

      You may be thinking of the partnership with the New Jersey Meatball Company. Check this website for the story. Not a financial arrangement according to the restaurant owner. Just an agreement to feature her meatballs and sell her cookies in exchange for using her name and family photo.

      • noarguingwithstupid

        What is amazing to me, is Treape gets a lot of publicity, whether the show is on or off!! She really manages to get folks in an uproar, myself included!!

      • noarguingwithstupid

        The formal fambly photo of the Apes!!!

    • noarguingwithstupid

      Zoe, Treape is going to do whatever she wants because she believes she can!!! And the way the IRS is NOT doing their job, why shouldn’t she???

  • noarguingwithstupid

    I wonder who they have been borrowing money from?? Have they tapped out everyone now??
