Gia Giudice Celebrates 14th Birthday Without JailBird Mommy Teresa Giudice

Gia Giudice

Happy birthday, Gia Giudice, who is celebrating her 14th birthday! But as the entire world knows, Gia had to commemorate this occasion without her mom, “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star, Teresa Giudice, who turned herself in on Jan. 5 to begin her federal prison sentence for bank fraud. An early birthday present for Gia; however, was learning her mom has already been given a reduced sentence (providing no table-flipping occurs) from 15 months to 13 months.

E! News is reporting that “Gia is spending her day just like any other day” (like going to cheer practice, for example) and that the “young reality star has some exciting things planned for her birthday in the coming weeks.”

The insider is saying,

“Her friends are throwing her a big party this Saturday. Next weekend, she’ll have another celebration with her bandmates in 3KT. Everyone wants to celebrate with her.”

The source is also saying that Gia is holding up “phenomenally” considering recent circumstances.

“She’s really matured so much just in this past week. She’s got it all together. Two days a week, she mentors kindergarteners through third graders after school. She has cheer practice three days a week and she has her girl group.”

No doubt the life-changing event of having your mom in the clink will mature a girl. It will be interesting to see who is the more mature person upon Teresa’s release. (Our money’s on Gia!) And keeping busy with school, activities, friends and family is a great idea, but hopefully Gia and her sisters, Gabriela (10), Milania (8), and Audriena (5) will be provided therapy should they need it.

The insider insist that Gia is, “busy, but happy. She’s really got her life in order right now…Everyone’s really proud of her.” Gia tweeted Sunday night, “support system is unreal #soblessed.”

Gia Giudice Tweet

Before Teresa turned herself in, she spent that last free Sunday at church with the family and getting everything organized as much as possible. “Her priority was making sure her daughters’ schedules and routines would be disrupted as little as possible.”

Once Teresa completes her sentence, husband Joe will then turn himself in to serve his 41 month sentence. After this the family could have one last hurdle to overcome with the possibility of Joe’s deportation. But by that time, Gia will be celebrating her 18th birthday and be able to make her own decisions on where to live.

  • She Stinks!

    HB Gia! Poor girl, at 14 she has to deal with the brunt of her crazy mother and father’s shenanigans. She has to babysit Juicy now, then deal with the emotional train wreck Tre when she gets sprung from jail. Teen years are fun, and should remain that way.

    • Marsbars09

      Agreed. Gia’s teen hood is basically ruined. 🙁

    • TGIP – Nene’s New Wig

      That’s the ugly reality of every one of the people in that immediate family setting.

  • Just a jersey girl

    I think it is time to leave this family alone.

  • RonnieIsBack

    She when Tre gets out the clink..she will be 15 (Gia)….man I can just hear the conversations..a lot can change in a year…
    Good luck….

  • WestCoastFeed

    Will there be paparazzi following their car all the way from Montville to Danbury clicking of pix of the girls? Probably. Poor kids, they have my sympathy.

  • RonnieIsBack

    And betwen know and then, Juicy is gonna get so much tail…he will be like Apollo was…in the streets a lot…Gia will babysit…whose gonna stop him?

    • Marsbars09

      Happy New Year Ronnie! I hope it got off to a great start.
      I think Juicy is going to hit the sauce on the regular and philander while the girls fend for themselves.

    • She Stinks!

      Yes! He’ll be at Satin Dolls drunk every chance he gets. I’m sure he’s already hit a few skanks!

  • Marsbars09

    I wonder if Gia really has her “life in order”? My goodness, the girl is only 14 years old. She needs protection, guidance, and emotional support from capable, caring adults.
    Also, this is only the beginning of Tre’s incarceration. Only time will tell how “phenomenal” things will be for the Giudice girls.

  • fred

    tell her friends to hide there piggy banks

    • TGIP – Nene’s New Wig

      Pfffffttttttt

  • Mickey Guerin

    She is mentoring children? Wow I’m sure Gia has so much same about her mother and father. I’m sure as a 14 year of she has been reading the papers. May be she wants people to think she is not like her parents and will be a better person,

    • MorningYawn

      I like that she is mentoring. It’s the first positive sign… Keep it up Gia!

      • TGIP – Nene’s New Wig

        Her job as a 14 year old is to be a 14 year old. She’s smack in the thick of adolescent growth. Her brain is still functioning at the primitive/limbic mindset that is very self oriented and it will be for years to come by design of the human being learning process.
        It’s just plain rude beyond belief that she’s saddled with either of her parents poor character to attempt to understand and then make an adult decision about. She’s not an adult!

      • Atomicbetty1000

        Sometimes, sometimes, these mentoring things are set up by the school. They are committees where other students can “air” their issues. It builds confidence for the children mentoring (which never really happens, because children don’t want to listen to other children and don’t really trust committee members not to judge them. It was a popular “tool” in the mid 90’s. Used in many middle schools.) I’m not saying that is what is going on, but it is my guess.

  • Atomicbetty1000

    Everyone is fawning over Gia because they pity her. Poor thing, I wonder if she gets it.

    • TGIP – Nene’s New Wig

      Nope, she’s a 14 year old.

      • Atomicbetty1000

        I hope Gia doesn’t ever realize it.

  • Vince Foster, Jr.

    I wonder why Teresa went to church? oh for the PR with the Trehuggers

    • Atomicbetty1000

      Exactly! Someone said that she went every Sunday. I doubt that, we would have seen more photos. Last Sunday was a photo op. Remember Theresa showing up extremely late for the Gorga Baptism? No real practicing Catholic would have ever done that, ever. Someone had to call ahead to have someone waiting to take her, I’m so innocent and goody goody photo.

      • Flanagan

        Hi Atomicbetty! I was a tad perplexed with the pic showing the Giudices on their way to church. And Teresa went every Sunday? Hmmm….I guess she missed the day when the stuff about not stealing was mentioned.

        • Atomicbetty1000

          Hi Flanagan! It’s good to hear from you! Yes, that photo was a hoot! Sunday masses usually occur every hour between 7am until noon. So, either Theresa called the paps to show up at a specific time, or they just happened to be there. Lol! Not likely is it. My question is: Who do you think Theresa was trying to sway with that photo? I don’t think it was done just for fans. Who is Theresa trying to convince she has turned her life around, or she has always been a good Catholic? And, I hate to be mean (or maybe I don’t really mind being mean 🙂 ) but IF Theresa was going to mass all the time, there would be more photos. The photo is suspicious. It really makes me wonder.

          • Flanagan

            I think it’s highly improbable this was a “regular” church visit that just happened to be memorialized by a passing photographer. Surely, in the years since TG has displayed her life for the television audience’s pleasure, there would have been just one other photo of the happy couple with their children in tow, scampering through the parking lot on their way to mass. I think someone (attorney?) advised TG it would be a good move to appear pious and humble, and attend church RIGHT BEFORE she disappeared behind the prison walls. Perhaps it was a flimsy attempt to impress the court and the prison officials she is a God fearing, unassuming and misunderstood wretch, who is spending her last few hours of freedom in the House of the Lord. And, she has proof positive she HAS been within 100 yards of a church. (See! I go to church every week, and I have ONE picture to prove it!). It’s not impossible more charges could be filed against her after she lied about her assets (once again), which was the reason Judge Salas gave her the prison sentence, and, after all, who would suspect a mother of four beautiful daughters, who brings them to church every week, of deliberately misleading the court? I don’t believe this was done for the benefit of her misguided fan club. They worship and adore her unconditionally, and wouldn’t care if she went to church or spent Sundays ripping off elderly widows eking out their existence on $500 a month. And it sure as heck doesn’t mean anything for the rest of us, who see TG for exactly what she is.

          • Atomicbetty1000

            I bet you’re right. All for prison officials. I wonder if she will attend church tomorrow. Call the paps! Oh, that’s right, no photographs allowed. I personally doubt that Theresa has acclimated to prison life. I believe there will be an explosion of emotions, if there hasn’t already been one. But, who knows, maybe they have her medicated.

    • Atomicbetty1000

      Do you think Theresa even knew what the rosary beads, and religious medals, given to her by her attorney were for? Lol!

      • TGIP – Nene’s New Wig

        Of course, she knows what they represent…however, to have the integrity and character to actually get what their purpose is actually designed to mean is a completely different acting lesson for her to attempt to put across for someone who is watching her.

        • Atomicbetty1000

          TGIP, lol! I was joking. Sorry, sometimes the silly doesn’t come through the printed word. But, thank you! 🙂

          • TGIP – Nene’s New Wig

            Uhps…Sorry :0)

          • Atomicbetty1000

            No problem! It was me not you. 🙂

    • She was fully made up and her hair done. She was paid for the photo op.

      • cait

        Doc, you would never go to Mass without full slap and hair-do ! The folk are so vindictive they would talk about you for months !

        • Silly me, I forgot that is what church is all about.

          • cait

            It’s not so much the Church or Mass ! It’s the vindictive, hypocritical feckers who make like they are pillars of society, when in reality they are as mean as hell !

          • MorningYawn

            I could drop kick a hypocrite. Jesus thought the same thing! Lol!

    • TGIP – Nene’s New Wig

      Appearances to proliferate a lie.

    • TJ Marcus

      I read it was a stock photo of them going to church & it never happened. Kinda off topic: I wonder if they ever told Gia that every Christmas Gifts , Bday Gifts , Easter Baskets, Video Parties, her baby sister & every Vacation they have been on has been paid for by ill-gotten money and that their entire life is fake. (Just a thought)

      • Atomicbetty1000

        Every bite if food, every garment.

  • cait

    For my 14th birthday, I got a lovely sewing box ! Oh, I also got chickenpox ! What a day ! I used the needles to pop the spots !

    • Hahaha! You’re so funny!

      • cait

        You’re cruel, Doc, chickenpox is not funny ! Popping the spots eased my pain, though !

  • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

    I do feel bad for those kids. It’s not their fault they had the misfortune to be born into a family of sneaky, scammy, lying grifters. Let’s hope that her parents prove a good BAD example of what NOT to do (kind of like an alcoholic’s child never has a drink because she doesn’t want to end up like that) but none of Gia’s tweets or comments to the media make me think that she has learned something about her parents’ crimes.

    A lesson needs to be learned from all of this–and somehow, I don’t think there is a person in the Giudice family’s lives that is capable of making sure that lesson is learned.

    As to Milania not knowing her mother is a jailbird–that’s laughable. Milania likely knew before Gia did. The kid is a brat but sharp as a tack.

    • TGIP – Nene’s New Wig

      That kind of anger has the opportunity to get real personal and very rude very quickly! And that’s no laughing matter by any stretch of the imagination.

      • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

        What anger are you speaking of? I don’t understand your comment.

        • TGIP – Nene’s New Wig

          Kids mimic those that they like. If it’s a parent (like Joe or Teresa Giudice) or a friend that they admire, their actions and words almost replicate that person’s anger technique.
          From what people are saying, Gia has expectations to take her mother’s place probably in parenting style, wifely fight style (with any fight partner), speaking style, etc. An adult may indeed think about what they are going to say prior to saying it. If a kid is mimicking someone else, the presentation takes no accounting for words or actions said and done that “hurts” someone else. It’s for effect, plus the kid hasn’t experienced lots of “adult recognition and feelings” so they just blurt it out just to do it. If she gets paid off, by someone smiling or laughing OR reacting negatively, you’ll likely see the actions repeated because of the pay off.
          So they are like a loose cannon ready to fire off OR you may see internalizing of the feelings when they shut down. Or both…after all she’s just 14 years old. No one should expect a 14 year old to have adult knowledge. She doesn’t have the reasoning abilities yet at any kind of sophisticated level.
          There is a very fine line between love and hate… and with a kid, they can be volatile as all get out…simply because they are a kid who is just starting to learn about all of these new and different feelings that they are just beginning to get to know.
          It’s a pretty complicated age.
          Sorry about the length of my reply.

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            Oh please don’t apologize for the length of your reply–it was well thought out and well stated. You know, i just didn’t even think about the anger issues those kids might develop but you are so right–kids do mimic what they see.

            And that was what worried me in my original post–seeing the parents lie and scam like that–well, it’s bound to rub off on the kids. And if Joe and Teresa can’t own and apologize for their crimes and really talk about the importance of living an honest life, then the kids are likely to go down the same road. In fact, I would not be at all surprised if Joe and Teresa learned from their own parents.

            I also agree that it is wrong for Gia to be a pseudo mother for her younger kids–as you said, she is an adolescent and her brain isn’t even fully cooked at this point.

            Thanks for your reply!

          • TGIP – Nene’s New Wig

            For sure, you are very kind. It was my pleasure to reply to YOU!

  • cait

    Saw something about Gia’s twitter account. Some man tweeted that he missed her ! She responded by calling him a f*gg*t ! Horrified on two counts, 1. She is open to attention from grown men. 2. That she could use such a word to anyone. 3. And Daddy excused it saying “f*gg*t was used as a term of endearment in his family !

    • TGIP – Nene’s New Wig

      And it’s just the beginning of the simple proof of how much these children are affected and effected by what their parents modeled for them to pass on!

    • I hate that freaking word so much. Disgusting. No one, let alone a 14-year old girl, should be using it. I hear it in rap songs all the time, and as long as people continue to use it as an endearing term to insult someone, then it will continue to carry on, which I find absolutely disgusting.

      • itsjustme

        It is a disgusting word. Any word used in a derogatory manner towards another to hurt that person is shameful, I find it disheartening to hear kids speak in that manner in this day and age with bullying being front and center in schools and in media. That word also affects me in a personal way in that I have family members who are gay and it affects me to have them have to hear others speak of them that way.

        • Exactly! I can’t fathom how people raise their children to think in such closed-mindedness. No one should be subjected to ridicule or insults based on the color of their skin, sexual orientation, etc. And this isn’t the first time Gia has done this. I remember way back in Season 2, she used a derogatory slur against a Jewish boy in her class, and Teresa came out and defended her saying it. Disgusting!

          • itsjustme

            I know, but when children hear their parents speaking in that manner, they of course will see nothing wrong with using those words themselves. How many times did Andy bring up Joe using that word at reunions and Tre excused it by saying it’s just a “saying” and there wasn’t any real meaning (i’m paraphrasing here) behind it. If I ever heard any of my kids speak that way even now when they are adults I’d probably knock them into next week! I’m kidding of course, but they certainly would have been spoken to in no uncertain terms as to how horrible it is to speak disparaging words to others.

          • I hope you’re not because sometimes there is justification to knock your child until next week. If you speak to them once, and they do it again and again, ok, my message is not coming in clear enough. Let’s persuade you a different way. Teresa and Joe have obviously failed these children. Let’s just hope that something can turn it around for them.

  • MorningYawn

    OT (again, sorry), Norrth, Walking Dead Season 5 spring trailer is out – have you seen it?

  • ButterflyArtGuild

    Sorry but I would not want my child mentored by someone on a Reality tv show.

    • TGIP – Nene’s New Wig

      What’s the point of your comment? To make a veiled apology… for what?

      • ButterflyArtGuild

        I just feel I should not judge a kid. But considering they are pimping her out like an adult it is to be expected.

        • TGIP – Nene’s New Wig

          Making “judgment” is not the true point.
          I agree with you on the mentoring. However, I would think that we both and most who comment here are of the same conviction that these children are only just beginning to experience the degree of veiled malevolence their parents have practiced in the home.
          Children distinctly remember far more than we think they know and thus show us. And it gets played out in their everyday experiences with their peers and those younger than themselves. Because to act out with a parent or an older sibling is just too dangerous. So those kids take it out on those whom they find that are less strong/weaker than themselves.
          This is just the beginning of their introduction to acting out.
