Exploitation: Gia Giudice Pays Tribute To Her Criminal Mother In New Music Video?

Posted on Jan 25 2015 - 11:39am by BeachSpin

Gia Giudice RHONJ

Gia Giudice has recorded and released a new video with girl group of 3KT, called “Just ’13.” The newest Giudice breadwinner is pounding the musical pavement hard, and is laying it on thick, as she works to sincerely convey the teen angst that naturally accompanies being the misunderstood daughter of a jailed reality star. The gist of the diddy is that lots of people are big meanies, her mommy has unjustly been snatched from her embrace , and WE should all feel badly that the teen is suffering.

READ: Gia Giudice Says Mom Teresa Giudice Is “Doing Great” In Prison & “Looks So Amazing!”

In truth, Gia is in this “storm” because of a giant CRIMINAL ‘elephant in the room,’ make that two, her parents, convicted felons Joe and Teresa Giudice. Teresa is spending her time in the slammer first, it’s a family “storm” and Gia’s manager wants us all to know that we will NOT break this adolescent workhorse, no matter how many times we Tweet about her. Lyrics to the song state:

Mama said be strong, so against this storm I’ll stand
Through it all
It’s just a joke to you
I’m just another hashtag

You won’t break me
You’re not that strong
I’ve got moxie
And the best is yet to come
Just let me be me…I’m just 13

 

This is obvious child exploitation, geared to raise public sympathy for Mama Teresa, and to drive the listeners to feel guilty about the unavoidable public discourse that the innocent children might be exposed to. First of all, the lyrics are uninspired, manipulative, and clash with everything that Joe and Teresa have worked to build, namely fame and a brand. The stardom or bust baton was obviously passed to the undeserving “just 13” year old eldest Giudice, when Teresa was forced to sprint to prison. Interestingly, 3KT certainly wasn’t concerned at all about being “Just 13” when they were gyrating around dressed like morally questionable 25 year olds, in their earlier revealed performances.

 

Gia has been allowed to flit all over social media for years, with Teresa’s blessing and probably encouragement, and magazine stories have been sold ad nauseam. A brief ‘day in the life of a devoted mother’ clip of Teresa, and a plethora of family photos add to the contrived and vocally rough tug at the heartstrings. Poor Gia has not only been put to work putting a spin on a story that has been put to bed, but has also been led to believe that the public is out to ‘break’ her. Everyone believes that Gia and her sisters don’t deserve any fallout for their parents’ corrupt decisions. Joe and Teresa are responsible for any ‘breaking’ of their ‘Just 13’ year old daughter….maybe Gia’s manager should suggest that she sing directly to them.

  • TGIP>>STHU NenePhaedraBrandi

    Sorry…I won’t watch any of their “music” (said with tongue in cheek) videos.
    I just won’t waste my time to contribute to any success for any of the Greedices. Not to mention, that I just have no need to hear another Tre-ite caterwauling like a wounded rabbit.
    Yikes!

  • WestCoastFeed

    Thanks for the lyrics, beach. All I could hear was the whining, Now I can read the whining, too.
    I wonder if this is the finale to their reality TV pilot?

  • Marsbars09

    Beach, your blog is SPOT ON! The lyrics to the song makes it seem like people are picking on poor Gia just because her parents are lowlife felons. The truth of the matter is no one is picking on Gia. Her self-serving parents are using her to keep them in the spotlight.
    Gia is a young girl that needs protection & guidance from adults, not to be exploited by them. For that reason I hope Tre is going through pure hell in prison.

  • italiano bambino

    Starting to believe that teresa TEACH gia very good before going to prison

    • You know she has. Gia is Tre’s mini me.

      • italiano bambino

        this shit because i ain’t calling it music wont make people change there views toward teresa … PS i am not hitting play so i won’t give her any views.

        • Marsbars09

          Hi Bam! It’s best that you don’t. I heard the song and watched the video. I think it’s disgusting how Tre is using Gia to keep her name out there until she is sprung from prison. This shows that Tre only cares about herself.
          I hope Tre is going through hell in the penn.

          • italiano bambino

            Hi Mars i def won’t hit play. Teresa did this to herself so now she’s paying for all the crimes ..

    • Marsbars09

      Yep. Tre got Gia trained real well! :/

  • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.
    • Bwahahaha!!

      • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

        Apple trees make apples, right?

    • Marsbars09

      Hi T-lily! Why did you post Prince?

      • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

        He’s got the “look” LOL!
        Hi’ya Marsie. Happy Sunday.

        • Marsbars09

          Happy Sunday to you too T-lily!

    “And although it may sting, I am a queen, and I feel nothing .”
    OMG! mini-Tre! Another trelusional being! It so has to be hereditary!

    I’m kind of ‘surprised’ that Gia doesn’t express some words of ‘my mom’s innocent’. Due to Plea agreement? OR that she knows mama & daddy did wrong, but won’t quite admit it to herself.

    • Same sociopath qualities like her mother. It’s really a SHAME they are trying to make the public feel guilty about Tre’s crimes. As if people should feel sorry for her. The song is a load of SHIT!

      • I1ST5XS

        True!

    • I1ST5XS

      It appears that Teresa has trained Gia to be just like her. Too bad Gia is too young to understand the ramifications.

      • twifan2

        Gia seems to understand famehoe’ing, spending $$$, being the ‘center of attention-good or bad. Just like mommy! 😀

        • I1ST5XS

          Yeah – you’re right about that. The look on her face while she is singing is pure defiant asshole. She probably understands exactly what she’s doing.

          • twifan2

            Oh I’m sure she gets that if she does bring in $$$, HER lifestyle will be of the Target, Wally World variety!
            No offense to Target, Wally World shoppers-I am proud to be one! (ɔ◔‿◔)ɔ ♥

          • I1ST5XS

            she just looks so hateful and full of contempt singing this song. Teresa did very well training her to be a carbon copy of herself.

          • twifan2

            I think she may be angry at the lifestyle changes that are coming.
            I get that she loves her mom, but Geez Louise! Mommy(&daddy) did this to you! She should try & make something better of herself! GET AN EDUCATION! Because singing is not her strongest forte’!

          • I1ST5XS

            True – I bet she is seething if they are cutting back. By all accounts of the way they are presenting themselves to the public, they are loaded; yet they are supposed to be broke. Remember Gia wanted a Cartier bracelet and Louis Vuitton luggage for Christmas. Hell when I was 13 I didn’t even have clue what that shit was much less obsess over wanting it!!

          • twifan2

            It’s not like she grew up with all that ‘stuff’. I think Audrianna is the only one that actually is growing up in the McMansion.
            Guessing Gia remembers the life of being ‘without’ & doesn’t like it. :/
            Welcome to reality miniTre! 🙂

    • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

      What kills me is the “Don’t judge or critique me.” While I put myself out there on a national platform.
      “I’m strong.” But I’m just 13.
      “What would the cameras see if they followed you around?’ But who put you out there on a national platform? Who allows it?
      Your parents
      & the ending, they make it like she passed away. She’ll be gone barely a year & according to the E interview, Mom was amazing, awesome & looked fantastic. So which is it really?

      http://www.bing.com/videos/watch/video/mr-subliminal/17wp2sv7z

      • twifan2

        I love this part:
        ‘Guess the elephant is getting to big for the room.’
        Well DuuuH! Mommy is a felon & will be from here on out! Is that what Gia is striving for? Felon status?! ☉̃_☉

        • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

          I just can’t believe that Tre & Juicy would stoop so low, but I know I shouldn’t be surprised. It’s not like them exploiting their kids is something new.

          • twifan2

            But see what I don’t understand-she has no actual singing talent. Writing-mediocre. This was a collaborated effort between her & Keresse Dorcely. Tre tried to get her into modeling-Fail!. Acting Fail! & as far as gymnastics, don’t see her competing on a National level.
            All these ‘talents’ should be funneled by her parents into something actually worthwhile-AN education!
            I’m thinking that Gia getting an education will take too long. Tre desperately needs the $$$ .NOW!

          • I1ST5XS

            Teresa is the ultimate stage mom! She has pushed that kid to be in entertainment since season one. It’s pathetic.

          • twifan2

            AND the way she filled Gia’s head with her lies. :/
            That’s truly pathetic!

          • I1ST5XS

            Right – Teresa may come off dumb as a stump but she definitely knows how to manipulate and play the victim. I’m hard pressed to find another person that feels more entitled than this thief. Wonder when someone is going to give her black eye in prison?

          • twifan2

            I wonder how many black eyes she’ll get before she’s out!? 🙂

      • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

        That’s the mindset of an adolescent.
        Sounds a lot like her mother, doesn’t it?
        Egocentric and obsessive on notoriety-say hello Teresa!

    • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

      Really???
      This 13/14 year old had the audacity (another word she likely has no idea how to say much less know what it means) to say she’s a “queen”????
      What a freaking huge ego. Seriously…what a wretched lacking brain this child is building.

  • TJ Marcus

    Bad Auto Tune song & she should be happy Terape didn’t get the time she deserves. Maybe instead of lip sync auto tune karaoke she should start studying and taking better classes so she doesn’t end up exactly like mama.

    • colleen

      Right on! Preach! Amen! Cosign and a big Alleluia! It would be interesting to see the kind of grades she gets in school

  • cait

    When GI(mme)A realises that her pennies are being taken by Mommy and Poppy, and not for her to spend on LV and Cartier, she will have a hissy fit and run for dem dere hills !

    • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

      You got THAT ^^^ right Cait.
      And I’m willing to lay down a bet that it will happen sooner rather than later.

  • twifan2

    Weird Al does ‘tacky’ better than Gia does!
    She should have taken some advice from Al. 😀

  • I1ST5XS

    Shouldn’t the lyrics be directed at her awful parents not the public?

    • twifan2

      Gia’s banking on the public ‘buying’ the $ong. Mommy & daddy can’t buy enough of the song to make it an iTune top 100!

      • I1ST5XS

        I’m not buying or clicking! LOL Damn thing auto plays on another site and you have to listen. The song is pathetic.

        • twifan2

          I’d buy it IF IT WAS GOOD! & maybe even if it were sung by someone else. 🙂

      • YES!!! And the fools will. I can see Leotard man crying now.

        • twifan2

          Leotard Boy would be sobbing into his Felonellini while he played it over & over & over…. You gotta be drunk to listen to that even just once! ◔_◔

      • TartLemon

        Why buy it when it’s free on many sites?

        • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

          From what I’ve read from peoples reviews here…one should respect their ears and eyes more and not even go there.

        • twifan2

          ‘Other’ people’s music I’d buy from iTunes. Never Gia’s music.
          Gia can’t give it away! 😉

          • Guardian

            Nor could they even get it funded on Kickstarter.

          • twifan2

            That Kickstarter thing was a joke!
            Showed them just how much people thought of them. Not much $$$!

  • italiano bambino

    This situation so reminds me when Teresa used gia to sing that song to Zio joesefina on season 4 because zio was spending time with her wife and kids #THENERVE

  • TartLemon

    With all the social media exposure, if Gia had any marketable talent, a legit big time producer/promoter would have snapped her up already. AIN’T GONNA HAPPEN!

    • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

      I agree…but even more ugly is that some degenerate producer/promoter is likely to make a bid simply because he or she is a wolf looking to take advantage of a little girl or trio of little girls!

      They won’t give a fig about the lack of talent vocally speaking. That industry is rampant with conniving and lying hungry for new meat to chew on, JERKS. They pinpoint little males and females to take advantage of in more ways than one.

      The parents of these young females should be brought up on charges of negligence for exposing their children to this industry!

    • Guardian

      I’ve been saying that since this, ahem, group got started. An agent couldn’t buy the exposure that could be piggy backed from the parents. But, today a group has to be able to do it all and be ready to go with little prep and investing. They are far from this with the possible exception of the one girl, but even her talents are a dime a dozen. Those who interview her/them could give a rat’s ass about their group – they just see G for what she is – a news pipeline to her mom and dad.

      • TartLemon

        Yeah, Alexa Maetta I think is the talented girl’s name.

        • Guardian

          Thanks Tart. Seriously, when I gave this a look see and listen last night all I could think was, “pity party.” I am sorry for these children but the irony is that if she wants to be left alone she should avoid those situations that put her front and center. That’s not beyond the thinking ability of a 13 year old.

      • twifan2

        Alexi is the one with the most talent in the group.
        I really hope the 2 girls didn’t have to sign some sort of contract that binds them to the Juicy fambly! Like in the terms of a Bravo contract. :/
        Alexi would be the one most likely to be approached by an agent-imo.

        • Guardian

          I have wondered about the contract arrangement. Don’t know, but would imagine any money made could be fair game for creditors?

          • twifan2

            IF all the money brought in by the group was not split amicably among the 3.
            I just hope it’s not a 2 or more years binding thing. :/

            AND have you noticed-no interviews of the other 2 girls’ parents?! :/

          • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

            Oh Pleeeeeze!
            These fools are just working on fumes. Nobody is making any “money” and they won’t be even vaguely in that realm of remuneration any time soon.
            Hell…look what happened with someone as amazingly talented as Billy Joel. The guy oozed musical ability on instruments as well as vocally. And he got taken to the cleaners BIG TIME!
            So, who in their right mind even marginally thinks these adolescent fools have any chance of success AT ANY LEVEL?!?

          • Guardian

            I understand they have a questionable manager. Bottom line for me is would they make it past a try out for a national talent program? – me thinks that would be a no. Not necessary for launching a career but a good litmus test for ability.

          • Flanagan

            If they appeared on any of the singing competitions, I do believe they would be advised to get some serious coaching and lessons before they could be considered to get past the first gate.

          • WestCoastFeed

            And they’ve been taking lessons for years.

          • Guardian

            Refund!

          • twifan2

            If I were Gia’s voice coach, I’d never acknowledge that!

          • Guardian

            Yeah, I mean how nice that she is taking voice lessons but c’mon, if it “ain’t” there, you can only get it so far.

          • Flanagan

            Honestly? Oh dear………

  • TartLemon

    I can’t understand why the parents are feeding their children to the media wolves like this. Why are they not speaking up to help those kids in the middle of this storm? Why isn’t the child labor board investigating this?

    • Guardian

      Makes one wonder, but it’s a fine line with CPS and other similar agencies. If she is attending school and their reports say she is doing OK and visits to the home back that up, there isn’t much that can be done.

      • noarguingwithstupid

        You are soooooooooo right!!!!!! CPS could care less about the labor laws–spend some time in the fields in California!!!

        • Guardian

          Yep!!!!!

    • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

      Yeah…that’s why the parents of these widgets should be turned in to the authorities for negligence and abuse of every one of those “girls”!

    • MidwestMiddie

      Joe and Teresa consider their children to be their props to be used and abused.

  • WestCoastFeed

    Remember, this is just a portion of the pilot they are filming and trying to sell to the teen reality tv market. The story of 3 friends struggling to make it in the music industry. I guess they think Nick or Disney will buy it.

    • noarguingwithstupid

      LOL!!!!

    • Guardian

      I know – can you imagine what other things are going on?! All for the viewing pleasure of tweens.

    • twifan2

      Nick &/or Disney would have the whereto($$$) to produce their own series with talented kids. 🙂

      • Guardian

        Good point! I’m not familiar with their programming but would say between the makeup and the costumes, and the um, dancing, not to mention the vocals, they would pass.

      • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

        Don’t think Disney would back them at all. Disney protects it’s image, name & reputation at all costs. Don’t think they would want to associate the ‘Disney brand’ with 2 known & convicted felons.
        Not even if this kid was the next big thing or a perfect blend of Christina Aguilera, Mariah Carey & could hit 7 or 8 octaves. & danced like a blend of J-Lo & Beyonce.

        • twifan2

          Exactly!
          Disney would stay away from the Juicys at all cost!

  • Flanagan

    A parent being sent to prison is certainly a devastating experience no child should ever have to face. To use their child to further their own agenda is just beyond the pale, and I can only hope that some day, in some way, the Giudices will pay for THAT. Along with the low life denizens who are producing and promoting these videos and public appearances. Gia should be protected from public scrutiny. She is too young and immature to realize the full ramifications of what the adults around her are encouraging her to do. To Gia, this is a lark, and a boost to her “singing career”. It’s just a crying shame there is not a single person to step in and stop this.

    • Guardian

      Hey girl!!!! How are you?! Oh, isn’t this just dumb? Just plain dumb. Denial is genetic – who knew?

      • Flanagan

        Hey Guardian! How goes it? Great to see you. Yes indeed, this is proof positive genetics have more influence on us than we ever realized!

        • Guardian

          Anyone who criticizes them are haters – regardless of how gently or fairly it is done. The truth is kryptonite to them. I had hoped the kids would fare better but really, they don’t stand a chance at this rate. After G’s comments re how fun the prison visit was and how amazing her mom looked well . . . that speaks volumes.

          • Flanagan

            The LAST thing I would want to hear a child say, is that it was “fun” visiting their parent in prison. Fun? Really great to see them, good to know they’re okay, but FUN???? You know, I think Teresa’s supporters default to the “haters” label because they can’t come up with any legitimate argument for supporting her, and that’s the only come back they have.

          • noarguingwithstupid

            Fun for them is very, very, scarry!!!!!!!!

          • Flanagan

            I shudder to think what Milania’s take on prison life would be.

            Yep – when all else fails, when you have no stand, just say, “Hater.” The most over-played card in the deck.

  • Guardian

    If she really wants to tug at my heart strings, how about a song re the feelings of all of the people/creditors they cheated . . . and how they feel about her parents. Think a re-payment plan could be put to music?

    • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

      ha ha ha HAH HAH HAH..Now that’s funny…a re-payment plan!

    • So true! Making songs blaming others is not the way to show remorse.

      • Guardian

        Too often they are the forgotten victims in this saga. Watching this child trying to channel her inner Annie Lennox is irritating to say the least.

        • noarguingwithstupid

          Annie Lennox—haven’t heard her name in ages and I can wait another age to hear it again!!!!!!!LOL

          • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

            Just curious…what’s up with Annie Lennox?
            I welcome any opinions because, that’s just the way I am.

          • Guardian

            Don’t know – just thought of her because of her looks in videos when she would be staring into the camera. Just reminded me of what G was trying to do. In that V-neck, tee shirt and the adult makeup.

          • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

            I totally get that.

          • noarguingwithstupid

  • noarguingwithstupid

    Tottally OT—Any cures for restless leg, other than walking, which I can’t!!!

    • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

      My questions:
      What are the side effects of any medications that you may be taking.
      Where in the legs is it most notable – front, back, upper leg, lower leg, under foot, at inner hip, lower buttocks, etc.?

      • noarguingwithstupid

        The whole damned leg!!!! Tried Soma with no help. Can’t walk because of disability. Maybe I will just watch reruns after reruns??????

        • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

          Has your doc said that massage is okay?

          • noarguingwithstupid

            I never asked him—I will though, thank you!!

          • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

            If he says it’s okay, a less expensive way to get this kind of assistance would be from a nearby school that has students who need to practice with supervision in their clinical lab’s.
            Let me know if you know of any in your area, or I can research it for you.

          • Guardian

            Excellent advice – especially if you can tap into physios’ in training.

          • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

            Wow, Guard I feel for you and how you gained such great knowledge. I’m so sorry you had to go through all of that.

          • Guardian

            So many surgeries, so many hospital beds, toooo much. But, I’m still kicking and doing as well as I can. I have learned a lot just from experience, forget training – and it was the hard way every time. I feel for those who suffer and I am so weary of what they don’t tell you about meds as in, “Great news – looks like you’re healing! Those meds and those treatments really did the trick. Oh, yeah, but sorry about the lymphoma.”

          • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

            I soh hear you.
            That’s a BIG

          • Guardian

            I’ve dodged a lot of them but mainly because I would say not no, hell no. Just because they haven’t had a patient get kicked in the teeth with something doesn’t mean it can’t and doesn’t happen. Patient beware.

          • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

            I completely agree with you.
            One of the absolutely best massages I ever received was from a woman who was blind (not at birth). That’s because she sees through her fingers and listens to what the client’s body is telling her.
            That’s how I massage but I’m sighted. I also protect myself and the client prior to the massage so we don’t have any transference.

            But listening to what the client is telling you about what’s going on is soh damn important and it’s what should drive any and every massage session.

          • Raine Woman

            Tre’s, I promise I’m not stalking you; but I’d really like for you to be my neighbor. If Guardian could move in on the other side, I’d be set for life. You two are a wealth of information!!! 🙂

            I’m just another bozo on the bus.

          • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

            NAWS, I’m so sorry. I feel for you that you have such discomfort and pain. What a major bummer!
            I’ll see about doing some research on it too.

          • noarguingwithstupid

            Thank you my sweets!!!!

          • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

            Hey Girl,
            How are your shoulders, arms and hands?

          • noarguingwithstupid

            All bad, but bearable!!! Rheumatoid has zeroed in on hands, knees!!!!

          • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

            Oh Lordy.
            I soh cherish YOU.
            If your doc says that massage is okay, maybe there is a massager that you can acquire that can be hooked up to a bar or something like that that you can lean into to begin seeing if it can give you some relief.
            I know the exact machine that could be fixed like that for you.

          • noarguingwithstupid

            I will ask him–his only remedy is ice packs!!! (typical neurosurgeon!!!!)

          • Guardian

            OOOOhhh neurosurgeons – the crème d crème of the medical crop. There are some very good ones but too many get downright pissed if you don’t respond/heal the way they think you should. Most only want glowing feedback.

    • Flanagan

      Sometimes alternating hot packs and cold packs will help, along with massaging. Also, a vitamin or mineral deficiency can exacerbate symptoms. Have to be cautious before taking them, because of interactions with medications.

      • noarguingwithstupid

        I have tried the ice packs and they help a little–heat seems to make it much worse!!! I keep on with the ice. Thank you!!

        • Flanagan

          I hope you can find some relief. My father suffered from restless leg, and it made him so nervous and anxious. Are there any prescription medications available for you?

          • noarguingwithstupid

            I take the med’s foIr restless!!!!!!!

        • Guardian

          No more than 15 on and 15 off with the ice though as RLS is often indicative of circulatory/nerve issues and you don’t want to invite skin problems.

          • noarguingwithstupid

            Well, i have done a lot of icing!!!!!!!! Heat is just awful!!

          • Guardian

            I’m a veteran of many serious spinal surgeries and worked in the field at one time. I’ve seen people damage their skin with extreme icing but I sure can understand why they do. The meds for RLS have such nasty side effects and most report that they don’t work all that well. I say do what feels best but keep an eye out for redness that does not go away when you break from the ice, or same for white patches.

          • noarguingwithstupid

            Thanks for the info. 4 cervical surgeries did not help me I’m sure!!!!

          • Guardian

            Been there done those! Have you tried the meds? I should correct myself and say that some people tolerate them just fine – others not so much. Depends on many factors. Whatever you take though, for anything, always check the side effects carefully first.

          • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

            Do you remember which cervical to thoracic vertebrae? And what issues like herniated, any fusions, etc.?

          • noarguingwithstupid

            all cervical, all fusions, all herniated ( I fell out of a chair and hit my head!!!!!!!) Took many surgeries to correct. Had to eventually go to Jackson Memorial and John Jane had to fix all of them)

          • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

            Wow, NAWS you are actually doing remarkably good to be on the computer. Holey Moley.
            Yeah, I’d be very interested to see if he thinks that massage might be helpful because the nerve supply to many areas may have been very compromised.
            I’ll start doing some research on your situation now. Be back with you later Sweet Heart!

          • noarguingwithstupid

            The bad part is now I have Rheumatoid Arthritis, which makes everything bad!!!!!!

          • Guardian

            Not unusual after spinal surgeries I’m afraid.

          • Guardian

            Oh crap. Oh crap, oh crap, oh crap. Someone blew it the first time – sorry. Unfortunately once the landscape is altered, it’s so hard to repair. Can take up to two years for nerves to regenerate – if they are going to. I am so sorry for you. I can’t imagine what you are dealing/living with.

          • noarguingwithstupid

            It has only left me with a few problems–I still can’t sleep on left side, even after all these years. And I a am terrified of massage–I don’t like anyone touching my neck!!!!

          • Guardian

            Same with me – only I can only sleep on my right side with a bunch of pillows strategically placed. Heat works on those areas so I have pads everywhere. And no, don’t touch my neck or my lower spine.

          • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

            Guard,
            A Manual Lymph Drainage massage might work for you as well especially in upper body. If you want to learn more about it, Dr. Vodder was the guy credited with designing it.

          • Guardian

            Actually I do pretty well. Most of the pain though is due to the progression of the scoliosis from age. The surgeries went well but they can only wrestle the spine so much. I also have rotated shoulder blades due to the curves and there isn’t anything that can be done for that (like nothing). Spinal arthritis, bone spurs, stenosis, blah, blah, freaking blah.

          • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

            I totally get that!
            My mom only had a whiplash and was super sensitive with anyone touching her. But she would let me.
            Are you sensitive with other parts of your body being touched/massaged/skin moved?

            I ask because in the neck region maybe a manual lymph drainage massage would be the ticket for you. It is super super subtle and basically involves very gentle moving of the skin but the benefits for the lymph vessels can be quite healthful.

          • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

            Sorry to bug you NAWS…was it John Jane Sr or Jr.? Also was it a frontal/anterior fusion or back/posterior fusion? (I’m thinking it was posterior.)
            And I’m so curious, what sort of range of motion do you have in the neck region as well as in the knee to lower leg and ankle.
            Do you drink water? Water (like at least 16 oz’s) 15 minutes prior to anything else is really good for the kidneys!

          • noarguingwithstupid

            He was real good looking and about 40 or 50!!! Don’t know about frontal or anterior–The scars are of course on my neck. Prior to john doing the surgery, 3 other quack neurosurgeons tried and failed–Jane got it on first try!!!

          • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

            I’m glad that Jane treated you well and that you were spared any more need for further surgery’s.
            What can I say, I am so amazed at your stamina to be on the computer at all.
            Love YOU SweetPea.

          Most mother’s think that whatever their children do is wonderful – and God bless them. But, we’re not talking about most mothers with T. We’re talking about a nut job. It’s such a tough industry that if they think what the public is saying is harsh wait till they hear it from professionals. It won’t be flattering nor sweet. If they make it that far, that is.

          • twifan2

            ‘But, we’re not talking about most mothers with T. We’re talking about a nut job.’ <—THAT could another reason(aside from no real talent) why agents, producers are staying away from this group-Gia! They don't want to have anything to do with Tre!

          • Guardian

            I agree. Entering into a contract/biz with someone like her has trouble written all over it. The kind of trouble that costs a lot of money in court.

          • twifan2

            Lord help them! smh

          • Guardian

            Oh no kidding. I’m sure they spoke with lawyers(?) but here’s the problem with that . . . they’ll always give you the best case scenario and then charge the shit out of you when it hits the fan. We’re talking about underage kids here and those contracts are very vulnerable and subjective.

          • twifan2

            I thought legally the kids are not held to the contract(s) because they are underage. UNLESS their parents sign for them-they would be the ones pulled into the legal nightmares.
            Disaster no matter who signs!

          • Guardian

            That’s what I mean. They act as their agents – and that can get really messy because the kids will be held to what they sign them to. Getting them in is the easy part, getting them out, not so much.

      • Flanagan

        Oh Thank You, Mister Darcy! Fish sticks won out. I think my love affair with these delectable morsels of crunchy elongated fish began in the elementary school cafeteria. The intoxicating scent of crispy coated mild white fish wafted through the air, drawing me with rabid delight to the lines of ravenous 6 year olds also eagerly awaiting the well earned reward at the end of the rainbow. A tray adorned with 4 lovely, golden brown fish sticks, a pile of crispy tater tots, green beans, which nobody ate, and a blob of lime Jello. And, of course, the little carton of milk I still adore fish sticks as much as I did all those many years ago. A love story for the ages. Bon Appetit!

        • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

          Did you grow up in Southern California?

          You totally correctly described my school lunch too. Complete with the tater tots

          Great Stuff!

          • Flanagan

            YES! Orange County! Tuesdays were tacos-“ground meat, lettuce, tomato and cheese on a crunchy folded tortilla, nibblet corn with mild red peppers, sliced peaches and a peanut butter cookie”. Thursdays was hamburger day: “Hamburger patty on a buttered bun, with lettuce, tomato and pickle, roasted potato chunks, green peas with butter and chocolate pudding”. Gads, I still remember. And the cafeteria ladies with their light green dresses and hairnets, who always looked at us very disapprovingly. Ice cream was a nickel. I had a Roy Rogers Chuckwagon lunch box for the days I didn’t like what was on the cafeteria menu. And the kids who brought lunch from home sat on one side, and the kids who bought lunch sat on the other. No co-mingling. I never understood that. Were they afraid some miscreant third grader would abscond with a tray? Oh, and remember the smells of the lunches brought from home that were put in the closet in the classroom? Tuna, bologna, apples and home made cookies, all swirling together. Aahhh, what a lovely trip down memory lane. Thanks for the nudge!

          • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

            There ya go!
            I went to Downey schools.

            That’s too much!

          • Flanagan

            Wasn’t it a wonderful time? I started kindergarten in 1958 in Buena Park. About 10 years ago, I called the school to find out when their open house was scheduled. I just had to go, and see my old classrooms again. Some things were different, of course, but more things were just the same. It was almost a surreal feeling, looking at the little desks, and the same long wooden pole that was used to grab the hook on the high up windows, to open them up. There was a worn spot on the wall where it had bumped against it all these years. The cabinets were the same, the lights and the clocks and even the floors. The same playground equipment was there (that was back when things were made to last!), and the trees had grown enormously. It almost made me a little sad, and I’m not sure why. Maybe it was the realization of the passage of time, and how long ago that really was. But I was glad I went. I still have a few of my report cards, from the first, third and fourth grades. Talk about relics!

          • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

            Didn’t everything seem so small when it was so big or just perfect when we were in grade school?
            I have my report cards. I even have my first President’s Physical Fitness awards that I got in Junior High School.

            I’m a teacher so I see this stuff in my district all the time. And yeah, nothing has changed much.
            I was talking to the aides in a class just a couple of days ago how my girlfriend Janelle and I called ourselves the “kicker girls” in second grade. During recess we loved to pretend we were ponies running out in the field. So if the boys came close to us we were like fillies who were kicking up our heels and having such a great time. She was my best friend until she moved away. That was such a bummer.
            Then I went to another “new” school because our school had so many kids in it and the district was just waiting for the school to be finished in construction.
            I really like school…still do!
            Now it’s my turn to say THANK YOU for taking me down that lovely little lane filled with all the other kids!

          • Flanagan

            Funny you should say that. I had remembered the cafeteria being the size of a blimp hanger, and when I walked in, after all those years, I just stood there in wonder about how small it was! And the stage, where we had performed all of those Christmas programs, was so teeny tiny. How did we all fit there? And it was so hard to believe, at one time in my life, I had fit in one of those teeny tiny little desks. Remember hopscotch? The hopscotch outlines were still painted on the blacktop. That really shocked me. I didn’t think kids still played hopscotch. Such a simple game, and so much fun. The worse thing any kid ever did, in elementary school, was calling a teacher by his first name. We were out for recess, and when he did it, we all froze in utter astonishment. For one thing, it was tough getting used to the idea that teachers even had first names. And to hear it shouted out, by a 10 year old, well, we knew he was surely headed for reform school. He did get jerked down to the principal’s office, and shuffled back, head downcast, an hour later. I don’t think he ever called another teacher by their last name, much less their first name.

            Caramel….one of God’s best gifts to us. And nowhere better to get it than the Rocky Mountain Candy Store. And having an apple with it nullifies any negative effects from the sugar. And we all know nuts are a healthy alternative to salty snacks!

    Let’s do a (C) RAP for the band !
    My Mommy & my Poppy did a real fine scam, My Mommy would say “Do you know who I am ?
    I’m a real hot Momma and I want to make bucks, and while I’m making money, I don’t care who it f*cks
    I got my big McMansh and Rolex by the dozen, and the best thing of all, it p*sses off my cousin
    My brother and the wife are a pain in the ass,
    I don’t know how they get by cos they ain’t got my CLASS !
    They ain’t got my money and they ain’t got my fame !
    And they ain’t got the brains to play me at my game !”

            Pop or soda isn’t good for anybody. Carbonation does a real number on the kidneys and urinary system.

            SweetPea…that’s a lot of acid. That water first thing in the morning is going to be even more important before a bucket load of OJ. It certainly won’t hurt you except maybe you’ll have to hit the “head” pretty often.
            If you can get naturally alkaline water, that’s even better.

          • noarguingwithstupid

            sometimes I drink lemonade, but I don’t drink coffee and just love oj!!!

            Blessed be, Girl. More acid with the lemonade. Shewee.
            Ask your doc about drinking so much citrus too. A body that’s too acid is not even a good thing for any “disease”. It may be aggravating your RA Sweet One.

    Out of curiosity just checked G’s twitter page. Good grief – she has a side profile in a tee-shirt with her boobies padded and pushed up to her collarbones. Only 13? Try acting like one.

    • Flanagan

      SOMEBODY needs to get control of her.

    • Flanagan

      Did you notice there’s a comment posted today: “I gotta do what’s best for me”. Dear God, Gia has no clue what’s best for her, and neither do any of the adults in her life.

      • twifan2

        It’s not that she doesn’t know. It’s that she’s 14 yrs old & knows it all, but doesn’t understand it. She’s going to do what she wants. Good luck with that & the ramifications that follow. :/

        • Flanagan

          Yes, I forgot. 14 year olds DO know more than the doltish adults. But at least some 14 year olds have parents, or a parental figure to keep them in line. Gia, and her sisters truly lost out in the parent lottery.

    • TJ Marcus

      Her role model is her mother who also dresses like a w****. Gia is a product of bad parenting and it shows.

  • MidwestMiddie

    So poor Gia and her ego are as delusional as her Inmate Mother’s……….ugh!
    It is disgusting how little Joe and Teresa care about their children. They’re pimping
    their daughters the legal way. Gag!
    I read Gia’s Music Teacher (?) helped her compose the lyrics. It is too bad the
    teacher didn’t offers some legitimate suggestions such as –
    Gia’s mother is a crook who pled GUILTY!
    Gia’s mother isn’t an innocent victim and perhaps Gia should grow up and
    go meet her parents victims. They’re the ones suffering and in need of help.

    IMO, Gia’s Sympathy Tour is a failure on all levels and has added more damage to her
    parents already reprehensible reputations.
    Please kiddo, go on being a 13 year old teen which means we don’t want
    to hear from you.
    Enjoy your life and let us enjoy ours too.
    LEAVE THE PUBLIC VIEW, ASAP!!!!

    • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

      Well said.
      But, unfortunately common sense doesn’t seem to be a virtue of those parents and it will be passed on to their children, obviously.

      • Guardian

        Clearly, it’s in their genes.

    • Guardian

      Same feel sorry for me/victim card as her mother though in this case the children really are the victims. Think her music teacher might want to break the reality of her ability to her as in . . . you won’t go much farther. There has to be some natural talent and a range – neither of which G has. The lyrics are worthy of a child – if this is with help from the teacher, clearly she’s (the teacher) no whiz when it comes to song writing. I agree – stop this nonsense or just keep it was it is – a hobby worthy of their garage or basement. And if not, pen a song about the real victims.

      • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

        Uh…I don’t know about who the victim is when someone wants to listen to Gia (caterwauler) sing from the reviews that some have offered.

        Is it so bad that no dogs should be in the vicinity of Gia belting out some tunes?

        • Guardian

          There’s a trail that’s for sure.

        • MidwestMiddie

          Yes! Protect The Very Young and Elderly Humans and All
          Canines from Gia’s caterwauling.

          • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

            You know something, if it’s a high pitched grating on the nerves sound it just bothers all people AND animals.

    • Ravello

      I read it was Gia’s music “coach” who helped write this song. How are they paying for a music coach? I have always said kids should be off limits for public criticism but Gia is pushing my tolerance and sympathy. Her videos, tweets, interviews are most unbecoming, not just to her parents but to her. The backlash is growing and Gia will be in the public crosshairs. She is her mother’s daughter. God help her.

    • TJ Marcus
  • MidwestMiddie

    Gia’s public adulation for Inmate Teresa may have unexpected consequences
    for her “Mother Love, Love, Love.”
    Are Danbury’s Inmates getting tired of Inmate Tre’s public attention? Are they jealous
    that their daughters and sons are not being asked for media interviews to proclaim their
    deep love for their mothers?
    Perhaps one or more of the Inmates have children with true musical and
    vocal talent, unlike Gia.
    Jealousy is a bitterness not easily dispelled.

    Talking about genes, Grandson Bobby (7), telling his Auntie, that he had aced a test at school, and she replied “You’re clever cos it’s in your genes” to which “little man” replied “No Auntie Jenni, I was in my school uniform !”

      • DLister

        Oh, those tricky homonyms!

  • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

    I just can’t believe this. The complete lack of awareness that their own actions invites criticism and reaction. Like most of these HWs and their offspring they want to enjoy all the trappings and fame that being on a reality show brings them but wants everyone to shut up and not comment on their behavior. She wants to propel her music career forward on the back of her mom’s notoriety but she wants to moan then about being judged. If 13 is too young for the judgement then it is certainly too young for the over sexualized videos.

    • Guardian

      Well said. Very well said.

  • A Reader

    A sad, pathetic cry for help. Can’t this family do anything in private? I am not sure how her parents are proud of this piece of work, but then again, they are the ones who directly caused her emotional pain.

    • Guardian

      As per usual, blaming others hence the “scolding” lyrics from G and her self proclamation of being the Queen.

      • Trippinhhard

        She is a queen of thieving parents.. Who is paying for all the videos

  • BuckJohnson

    What until the IRS and courts start to dig into her money when they think that her parents are using her money to live without them making restitution. They may put their daughter in trouble because they are a bunch of idiots.

    • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

      Oh, I’m thinking that what you wrote is exactly correct. It sounds just about right that whatever money that comes into the household will have a chunk of it going to the IRS.

            I’m amazed at how different the Mr. Collins-es look from one production to the next!
            West,
            Have you watched “Lost in Austen” with Jemima Rooper. It’s an adaptation that combines a modern day girl and the period production where Lizzy swaps places in modern times and the modern girl Amanda Price goes to Lizzy’s time frame.
            If you haven’t, it may be worth checking out. I have it, the Masterpiece Theater production with Colin Firth and the Showtime production with Matthew MacFadyen and Keira Knightley on DVD.
            Too much Fun!

          • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

            I have to see that one…I haven’t yet.

            There’s like 10 versions out there! 😮

          • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

            It was a great rendition, the Showtime one, but it really was so shortened.
            I did a P&P weekend and was in Darcy and Lizzy Heaven! I watched one series that was from 1980!
            I had just finished reading that book after Sense and Sensibility.

            One of my brothers is working a contract in that area and I’m concerned about him. (He flies out every Sunday night and then back on Thursday night.) He drives to the site. Told him to put water, food, matches, candles, blankets in the rental car (ask the hotel to take the blankets first). He’s never been in a storm of that magnitude.

          • twifan2

            Yes, it’s going to be cold, snowy & bad for lots of people. 🙁
            He needs some cat litter too. Makes for good traction under car wheels & a large bag helps with adding weight to the car. In the Spring, he can donate whatever’s left to an animal shelter. 🙂

          • Guardian

            Told him that too, as well as a shovel. I lived in Canada for 20 years so have been through this sort of stuff. Used to have flares as well but he’s more than likely going to be stuck with other vehicles so no need for them. It’s 67 here – about 40 degrees above average. I’m a winter person so would prefer what you’re having.

            Ah yes, back in those days it WAS so very different, wasn’t it. When I happen to be driving by the local high school when the kids are getting out, it’s just mind boggling to see how they’re dressed. Or not. Is there no dress code anymore? If we had shown up at school the way some of these girls dress, we would have been expelled, and banished to reform school.

            Out here in S.Cal, school uniforms are voluntary at the public schools. Surprising, many of the kids like to wear them. It does cut down on the competition of who has the best and the most clothes. It’s kind of refreshing to see those kids walking around without 95% of their flesh on display. Another thing too-how does the school expect teenage boys to pay attention to the teachers when there’s a cute young half naked female sitting right next to them?

    • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

      I respectfully disagree. She is NOT a good mother–good mothers don’t rob banks and people and put their daughters well being at risk to live a lifestyle the family can’t afford. Good mothers teach their children values of honest, hard work, integrity, etc.

      She’s probably the worst mother I’ve seen for a long time. And she’s raising four vapid, superficial, “I can get what I want” brats. God help us all as there are 4 more Teresas coming into this world.

    • twifan2

      ‘SHE’S NOT DYING OF CANCER’ <–could be a way for her to get sympathy from her stans & people? :/

  • Fritz the. At

    Ever notice that horrible people like farrah Abraham, teresa and some other housewives have now taken to referring to anybody who criticizes their actions as “haters”? This lets them off the hook for their behavior and in delusional psychosis, they really believe that they are beloved and those who do not share that love have character flaws. This way they never take responsibility or gleen perspective from intelligent and moral people who,find them disgusting. Gia is now part of that. In her mind, she and her mom are victims of haters and they are so strong because they refuse to bend to the will of those haters.

    • twifan2

      As a Tre ‘hater’, I prefer the word hauteur! 😉
      Or even ‘TreHater Crusader’. 😀
      Those poor stans will/are never going to come to terms that their ‘idol’ will never change her felon-ous ways. :/

    • Guardian

      It is the only comeback they have when they are faced with reality. Thus, the hater card is pulled from a less than full deck. The delusion is on them – as well as the joke. Gia is merely replicating her mom’s denial.

    • Flanagan

      People who like to spew the “haters” label, do so because they cannot come up with a legitimate argument to back up their cause, whatever it may be. You see it from these quasi-celebrities and their adoring minions alike. Sometimes, for fun, I will attempt to engage them in a civilized debate over their position of anyone who even suggests the one(s) they adore might actually have human failings, and their only comeback is to go on the attack with insulting and inflammatory name calling. What they fail to realize, is they are only degrading themselves, and exhibiting their own lack of intelligence and insight.

      • Guardian

        If they really want to show their loyalty, their support, their defense of her, they should band together and raise the money to pay off her court case and creditors – not just put a few bucks into her con account. Until then, just a bunch of air.

        • twifan2

          The thing with that is that Tre would use that $$$ for own personal use. :/
          It’s her ‘entitlement’.

            As long as Theresa claims the “gift” of fans paying her debt, and pays the IRS, I think it would be wonderful for her fans to “bail” her out. Also, all the “free money” fans are putting into her “jail shop, shop” account, it better also be claimed as income to the IRS. No such thing as free money. I hope the Feds catch her.

          • Guardian

          • Guardian

            Oh, no kidding. Forget apologizing to those you owe money to. Noted those who have met her at book signings started touting they had a personal relationship with her.

          • Flanagan

            And they fail to realize that’s not exactly a badge of honor.

          • Flanagan

            You know, when it comes right down to it, I think Teresa’s ever faithful groupies would freeze in their tracks at the thought of paying off ANY of her debts. It’s one thing to feel all snuggly and warm whilst fattening up her prison account, but when it comes to pitching in and paying back the money she stole, well, THAT’S a whole different story.

          • Atomicbetty1000

            I agree. I would bet Theresa’s dumb fans don’t even think she should have to pay back the money…those idiots think Theresa is rich. Lol! Rich? In more debt than Theresa even understands.

          • Flanagan

            Here’s something interesting. I just googled T.G’s net worth. It’s listed as 11 million. Dollars. So why isn’t she paying off the creditors?? And why did she have so much trouble coming up with the $200,000 that was due on her sentencing date? I don’t understand any of that. And you’re right-T’s dimwit fan club most certainly would believe she doesn’t owe a thing. After all, she didn’t murder anyone! (I love that one. I guess you can cheat and steal and swindle to the tune of millions of $$, but as long as you don’t off anyone, well, you get a pass!)

          • Atomicbetty1000

            The thing that bothers me is how her fans dismiss Theresa crimes as not prison worthy, because so, and so, did such, and such. For example, the banks did wrong, so Theresa shouldn’t be punished. The lack of emotional maturity of Theresa’s fans is astounding, almost child like. I keep telling them, yes, they did wrong, but that does not excuse what Theresa and Joe did. Remember the express, two wrongs don’t make a right? Well, one criminal does not dismiss the other one’s crime.

          • Flanagan

            I really do think, without being sarcastic, that Teresa’s fans are really just not bright. They cannot see past “well the banks do bad things to people” and my favorite “She didn’t KILL anyone”. They cannot and will not see the truth about Teresa that everyone else can see. I almost can’t stand it when they say “Well, you know, Teresa is really a good mother”. Sure she is. Let us count the ways……….

          • Atomicbetty1000

            How old was the article? I google that the year she chased Danielle through the country club. I remember reading 11 million. Funny, because Theresa’s debt was original reported that amount (bankruptcy?). Maybe that is an old article, because wouldn’t the bank make them fork over the money otherwise?

          • Flanagan

            Got to scoot out for the day-running late-I’ll be back & give info…….

          • Flanagan

            Hi Atomicbetty-I’m back. Okay, the article I saw was about a year ago, but there was another article I found, that said their net worth was MINUS 11 million. Huh? I would be more inclined to think it IS minus 11 million. If they had millions in the bank, surely the creditors would have grabbed what they’re owed. You know, they would have gotten away with paying back just a fraction of what they owed, but when they defaulted, it put them right back in the cross hairs of the creditors. I wish I could find out how much they have actually paid to the creditors. I think I’ll give it a search. Let you know what I find out.

          • Atomicbetty1000

            Thank you. I, also, googled them, about a year ago. I found the same negative 11 million. I think that negative figure (-11 mill) came shortly after they filed bankruptcy and then withdrew the petition. I don’t know how the author arrived at their original net worth as positive 11 million dollars. I doubt even the government will find the Giudice’s true net worth. I’m sure they have a bundle hidden. Some people said they were broke. I don’t buy that. My big question is: what did they spend the money on? They don’t own their home, or any of the houses they “purchased.” They don’t own their cars. The cars are leased. Joe doesn’t work, but Theresa does and gets paid pretty descent wages. We didn’t see, or hear about, luxurious vacations. (And, you know Theresa would have posted photos, because Theresa cannot go to the bathroom without posting a photo on Instagram). Theresa has designer shoes, bags, and clothes, but nothing I’ve seen that would cost 13 million. So, where is the money? What did they spend the money on? We can say they spent money on lawyers, but not 13 million dollars, and the newest report that I’ve read said something around 14+ million dollars. We know they “bought” real estate, but they have no equity in any property that they purchased. At first, I thought this was loan kiting. Borrow for a new loan to pay an old one, but they never paid for anything. So, I’ve never been able to answer my question, what did they do with the money? You’re smarter than I am, what do you think they did with the money?

          • Flanagan

            Hi Atomicbetty. First off, I wouldn’t agree about me being smarter than you, so that being said, I did find a cite, “campbelllawobserver.com/…/real-housewives-star-teresa-giudice”, that was dated January 1, 2015. It’s very interesting, and you can click on to the pdf on Teresa’s 5 million lawsuit against her bankruptcy attorney. Anyway, it said that when they filed for bankruptcy in 2009, they claimed debts on mortgage and construction loans, credit cards, etc. I know they live a lavish lifestyle, but that’s a HUGE amount of money.
            10 years ago, my sister passed away. Her husband got $700,000.00 in insurance payoffs. (Yes, it IS very suspicious). In exactly one year, it was gone. All of it.I know he bought a boat, a new truck, a Rolex watch, went golfing 4 times a week (he stopped working) and was lavishing his new girlfriend (she came along 2 months after my sister’s death) with diamonds and expensive vacations. (The g/f did have the good sense to dump him). HE file bankruptcy too, defaulted just like the Giudices, lost the house my SISTER paid for, and is now living in a 700 sq.foot shack in the middle of a dirt field. As he should be. What he did is on a miniscule scale compared to the Giudices, but my other sister and I, many times, have tried to figure out what in God’s name he could have spent $700,000. on in a year. That’s almost $60,000 a month!!! He didn’t even make any payments on the house. I just don’t know. That kind of spending is so beyond anything I’ve ever experienced-I’m not sure what I could buy to spend that kind of money. My dream car is a 1953 Good Humor Ice Cream truck, so I don’t have high aspirations. I am just stumped. I will search some more tomorrow, and see what I can find, because I am curious as all get out to know just what they did spend all that money on. Bankruptcy records have to be obtained in person, at the court house-they are not on any web site, so it’s not available to just whip it up on the screen. (#%$@&!!) I do, without any doubt, believe there is a considerable amount of cash hidden (Can we say Cayman Islands?) and Joe is just waiting to do his prison stint, grab the money, and it’s off to Italy. The BIG question is, will he take Teresa with him?

          • Atomicbetty1000

            I just read the John Grishom novel: Racketeer. In the book cash is hidden on St. Kitts and talked about Atigue. Grishom said he did almost no research for the book, so I don’t know how valuable the info is, but those two islands are a stones throw from the Dominican Republic. Giudice’s and Gorga’s talked about their trips there. I laughed when Joe Giudice said he didn’t know he wasn’t a U.S. Citizen, because he had to have that Italian passport long ago, in order to make those trips to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic. My bet is the cash is stashed down there somewhere. I checked he Cayman Islands, Grishom gave a reason in his book about why the guy I. Is book didn’t stash his cash in Cayman Islands. The Cayman Islands are South of Cuba, a little further away. I’m probably crazy to even think it, but I think it might be in St. kitts or Antigue. I know Grishom said he didn’t research for the book, but he has written so many books, that he might have already known the ins and outs of hiding money.
            I’m sorry about your late sister. Poor thing didn’t deserve that creep. I hope he gets his just reward! 2 months later, what a jackass! I’m glad he spent all the money and his toy left him when it was gone. Lol, he got only part of what he deserved!

          • Flanagan

            Very interesting! I didn’t remember the discussions about the trips to the D.R. That’s got to be it, a place Joe is familiar with. Remember the $100,000+ in cash Teresa flashed around the first season? You know there’s a lot more than that hidden away. And it’s not a leap to believe Joe has, shall we say, less than savory associates who could point him exactly where to stash the money.
            My brother had known the guy my sister married for years, and pleaded with her not to marry him, but she was blinded by his “charm” and sweet talk. It was her second marriage, and he just swept her off her feet. Her death was very mysterious. My brother begged me not to pursue it, for fear of what he would do to me. I knew my brother was right.

          • Atomicbetty1000

            I think it is interesting that Theresa did not have any fear of being evicted from their home. I think there is cash stashed someplace near home, and put away in a bank someplace out of government reach. Future, if Theresa was threatened with the thought if moving, I think she would have packed up. Plus, they added on the giant Porte Cochere to the house, the pool house, and pool, just since the indictment. If they thought they would have to move, why put more money into a house that would go into foreclosure. A very nasty Tre fan told me that house was not in foreclosure, they made their house payments, so no chance of that. (I thought whoever wrote was either Theresa or Dina, same tone and lack of intelligence.) so, where do they get their money from? Just weird curiosity about this stuff. There is money stashed in at least one place.

          • Flanagan

            Even Joe seems completely unperturbed about his looming prison sentence. Perhaps the thought of the millions awaiting him upon release has taken the sting out a little. I’ve wondered all along how thy’re getting by. I can’t believe any lending institute would give them 5 cents in credit. Bravo’s only going to foot their bills just so much. The “mansion”, and the other two properties are all up for sale, but if they get less than the properties are worth, there won’t be anything left for them or the creditors to claim. Are there any relatives left who would foot the bills? I think not. I read somewhere, that the monthly payments on the mansion are $10,000 a month. I cannot believe those payments are being made. I have searched around trying to find out if they have any sources of income, and can’t find anything. Have to do some more looking. I feel like a dog with a bone about this. And for the Tre fan, the properties HAVE been foreclosed. It’s futile to even try to explain anything to them. They are so invested in their blind worship, they refuse to see what is right in front of them. And what kind of person would support Teresa Giudice;A convicted lying, cheating criminal, who cared more about appearances than her children. That says a lot about the people who adore her.

          • Atomicbetty1000

            Thank you, I just read it. So, who do you think will win? It seems to me, when Theresa stood I front of a judge during sentencing claiming her jewelry had zero value, because it is fake, Theresa demonstrated to the world she is a liar who knows how to lie. Just that example should get him off the hook. How was he to determine what value Theresa placed on anything. When, Theresa claimed the value if her dog to be $800. (Or, whatever she said), I laughed and remembered Richard Nixon’s “Checker’s” speech. I’m not sure Theresa feels comfortable telling the truth. Theresa’s need to lie is the very thing that has caught my eye. I’m intrigued with this, because I am uncomfortable with lying, so it interests me how easily she tells them. In my wildest dream, I could imagine myself standing in front of a judge lying. Wow, that take grit! The hidden money also intrigues me. How does anyone steal that amount of money and not have anything left. Why add on to their house, if they are going to lose it? Why put in a swimming pool and pool house, when you cannot pay your bills and have a chance of foreclosure? I think they have plenty of money. They cannot access it as easily, but they have it. But, where?

          • Flanagan

            You and I are looking at this in a normal, rational way. We wouldn’t even think about over extending ourselves when we knew we could never afford to make the payments. But people like T & G don’t think like other people. They live in the moment, get what they want, and don’t think ahead about the reality of accruing millions of dollars in debt they could never pay off. And, lying is just second nature to them. That’s why liars get caught, because they can’t keep track of their trail of deceptions. When you tell the truth, you don’t have to remember what you’ve said, because truth never changes. I think people who are habitual liars get so entrenched in it, the truth never occurs to them. Once they say it, to them, it IS truth. And to lie directly to a judge??? Most of us would start sweating, shaking and hyperventilating. But not T & G. Remember the episode when Teresa was self righteously tsk-tsking about one of the other women getting caught in a falsehood, and said, with a straight face, “I don’t even know HOW to lie”. That one just about did me in. And the question remains, what in the name of all that is holy, did they spend that money on? I know they had close to 4 million in credit card debts, including Nordstroms and Neiman Marcus. Now, I understand it’s not anything out of the ordinary to spend, say, $600 on a pair of shoes. (Disclaimer: I’ve never even been inside either of these shopping establishments, but I’ve read about their prices). Even with that, it’s just beyond all understanding that Teresa could rack up that kind of debt. And even now, you know she still feels completely justified in doing so, because after all, she’s “The Queen”.

          • Atomicbetty1000

            Well, there is another clue that they have the money, the 4 million credit card debt. Theresa didn’t pay for her designer crap (I call it that because I thought the clothes she wore could easily have been worn on the tv show “Jersey Shore” by Snooky or JWow. ). So, the money did’t get spent on houses, cars, or designer duds. Where is the money? Let’s focus on Jewelry. I think most of her jewelry was real. We saw her on the first season take a Bravo trip with Caroline and Jacqueline to a beach resort. They all stop in a jewelry store. Caroline and Jac aren’t that interested, but the mafia queen (I call her that tongue in cheek, because she is no mafia queen or princess, more like want to be) wants to look at jewelry. Theresa starts bragging about how Joe never says no to her. Caroline and Jac throw it back and forth…yeas, Joe never says no. I think Theresa purchased a necklace (diamond), or their was talk of buying one. I think Theresa jewelry is real. With her opinion of her self being so high, she must show off the finest, most fabulous jewelry, it is a reflection of her, her wealth, and how much Joe loves her (to her). So, if her Jewelry was real, how many different pieces did we see? And, for the record, I don’t think Joe bought her much of it. I think Theresa stopped into stores to give herself a gift. The yellow canary diamond was worth well over 100,000. But, she can’t have 14 million in jewelry, can she? So, I’m back to my original question, where is the money. I certainly hope our government officials are asking that question!

          • Flanagan

            Mafia Queen-I LOVE it! The debts they listed on their bankruptcy are listed on different sites, but they don’t add up to any $13 million. As we know, they “forgot”, oh wait, excuse me, their attorney failed to tell them, to list EVERYTHING. There were cars, boats and I don’t remember what else, but it still wasn’t enough to total 13 million. They did take out second and third mortgages on their properties, but it still doesn’t account for that huge amount of money. Teresa would NEVER have any piece of jewelry that wasn’t real, so that could account for a couple of million. Joe has said, a few times, that Teresa would rack up $10,000 a month on credit cards, and he didn’t know what she got, he just paid it. I guess that was back in the days when they actually were paying some of their debts. Remember, in the first season, when Joe said “Happy wife, happy life”? That didn’t seem to work out so well.

          • Atomicbetty1000

            The newest report was negative 14+ million in debt.

    I have a question that I bet someone here can answer. I was looking at Teresa’s website and milania hair are is listed. However, who you click on it it brings you to super salon products with no mention of milania. Wondering if they took her name off.

    • WestCoastFeed

      I made the same assumption, Fritz. I just didn’t look closely enough. While the prominent name is now “Youthful 8” if you look at the smaller print underneath, it reads “the Milania Collection.” Prices are still slashed since the last time I looked. It is like they are remaindering the last of the product that has any connection to Teresa.

    That video is horrible. What a waste of money. I’m sure her parent’s creditors are just thrilled with all this waste of THEIR money.

    This “band” has zero talent. Even with auto-tune, the vocals are beyond rough. Someone should break it to this child that she’s never going to be a model, a singer, or an actress. She has no talent and with a zillion girls–all prettier, more talented, and with more natural charisma, she does not have a chance to make it.

    If she wants to be out of the “storm” then stop tweeting, posting on social media and throwing yourself into the spotlight.

    This song, the meaning behind it, and her family of THUGS just make me sick.

  • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

    How come they didn’t use the pretty talented one in this video? The pretty talented one probably wants to vamoose off this 3KT horror train once her parents realized it was the worst thing in the world for anyone wanting a real career. I mean-most people can’t stand Teresa. If I were the pretty talented one, I would distance myself too.

    All I see are two of them in this video. Are they now 2KT?

    • Guardian

      I noticed that too though she was front and center in the interviews. (Maybe she had to babysit that day – or she was embarrassed.) Regardless, seldom a good sign when someone in a new group goes AWOL.

      • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

        Exactly! But I bet the other girl’s parents thought twice when they saw all the negative press about the band’s “talent.”

        • Guardian

          Probably, since this girl does have some ability. Also noticed that she is absent on G’s twitter page picture – think the girl with her is one of the group. All the way around just really bad timing for G & Co. to be doing this, especially given the um, talent?

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            Ah, that IS very telling if the 3rd girl is missing from the twitter page. That girl actually can sing and is quite pretty. Her parents probably realized that association with T was much more negative than positive. That’s my guess.

          • Guardian

            This is probably their first introduction to “show biz” and are perhaps starting to realize that associating with G brings a big elephant into the room. Hmmm . . . I’ve heard that phrase recently. Wait, wait, oh right, now I remember.

          • twifan2

            Alexi has had some time in the limelight. Not as national as now, but I think she’s more ‘show biz’ en-graded than the 2 others are.

          • Guardian

            Good – hopefully she and her parents can absorb this. Do find it interesting that she was missing with this last uh, song. Think if she got an opportunity, she would jump this ship in a second – hope the contract has an out clause.

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            I didn’t know that. It looks like she might have bailed!

  • Flanagan

    I cannot think of any well known person, celebrity or otherwise, who has allowed their just barely 14 year old daughter to go on national TV, and opine about the conditions and well being of their incarcerated parent. The cover story, of course, is for Gia to gush about the “music” group, but the ONLY reason to put her out there is to keep her morally bankrupt mother in the public consciousness. Teresa knows full well the down side of notoriety, and to allow her daughter to be the target of a cruel and merciless public is just beyond any understanding. And she STILL calls herself a good mother.

      • Addie2U

        Hi Twi. I’m looking for you! ☺ Since you’ve given me some great tips in the past I was wondering if you’d know — when editing a comment how can I delete a photo I included (or can I)? Thanks, Addie (>‿◠)✌
        (Love the emoticons you hooked me up with)

        • twifan2

          Hi Hi Addie! 🙂
          Sorry, but you can’t actually delete a photo once it’s posted.
          You can delete the whole post. That will delete the pic.
          Scroll over to the right hand side of your post & 2 icons will show up:
          ‘- ‘& a ‘face down arrow’.
          Click on the arrow & Delete will pop up. (Along with Flag as inappropriate.)

          Hope this helps you! 🙂

          • Addie2U

            Thanks Twi. I’ve used the delete function in the past & instead of removing my comment — my name is replaced with “Guest” & once that’s done you’re stuck — you’re not allowed to edit at all. Guess it’s just a quirk w/Disqus. Thanks for your help. (>‿◠)✌

          • Addie2U

            Thanks for giving it a try Twi. This is exactly what happened to me in the past. Though I didn’t post a picture that time, I did try to delete a comment but it just changed “Addie2U” to “Guest”, then once it’s changed to guest you’re not allowed to edit at all. Instead of using the delete function I’ve found the only way to delete a comment is to Edit, replace your words with “deleted” / “redacted”, etc. & it will save that way. Just wasn’t sure if the photos would also be removed.
            Oh well, c’est la vie.

          • twifan2

            Ok, just did it. The thing that happens is that the post with the pic is deleted & it is shown as ‘Guest’. But I am still logged in as Twifan2 when I posted this to you.

        Hi Seuss! The elephant thing was about the lyrics in the inane “song” Gia put out. It was just painful to watch. She said something about “the elephant in the room” Don’t know what she meant. I don’t have the strength to watch it again.

        • Hi Flanagan! Oh I know that, I was just being fatuous. I believe the elephant in the room is her mother going to prison.

            I’m here in S.California, and it’s barely spattering rain. The weather people are having a meltdown. “Storm Watch!! The Rain’s Coming!! It’s Coming!! Prepare Yourselves for Flooding!!”
            I swear to goodness, it’s downright embarrassing the panicked ravings these guys go through. Then, they have the nerve to talk about blizzards and arctic storms bearing down on the rest of the country as if it’s just an after thought. I hope no one east of the Mississippi ever sees these idiotic forecasts.

            The weathermen sit around all year long just waiting for something exciting to happen. Then when there’s even the slightest chance of foul weather, they can’t help themselves. Here in RI you’d think Armageddon was coming (but we’ll survive as we’re well prepared with milk & bread). ツ

            Any Pop Tarts?

          • Anne Green

            You would literally think that we have not had any snow since the Blizzard of 78′. Do I really need a weatherman to tell me that if I lose power it would be a great idea to put any items from my freezer in the snow so they will keep? Do I need a news anchor to repeatedly remind me to check the batteries in my flashlights? Do I need the Governor to advise me NOT to call 911 if I have a power outage? You would think we were about to experience a nuclear disaster!!! Geez!!!

          • Flanagan

            All of those reminders come under the heading of “How stupid do you think we are?”
            Out here in S.Cal., when we get an earthquake, the newscasters go apoplectic. THERE’S BEEN AN EARTHQUUUUUUAAAAAAKE! Um, yeah, we know. And, when there’s a a large scale earthquake, they delight in reminding everyone: “And this isn’t even the BIG one!!!” Gee thanks, we needed that, as we’re cleaning up the canned goods and frozen food that came flying out, rolling all over the kitchen floor. Makes you want to turn off the TV news and watch DVD’s of I Love Lucy.

          • Addie2U

            The Blizzard & Ice Storm of 78’ changed how meteorologists report the weather. After they were held responsible for not warning us, from 1978 forward their motto became “better safe than sorry”. Here in RI we got slammed with 4-5 feet of snow with drifts up to 27 feet! It snowed nonstop for 36 hours along with hurricane force winds (as high as 90mph) & since it struck on a Monday during rush hour, thousands were stranded on the highway. We were at the mercy of the National Guard.

            Naturally businesses didn’t shut down so it took days for many to get home (then retrieve their cars on I95 or elsewhere). People got stuck in their homes without food, power, or water (we were w/out for 7 days) & if that wasn’t bad enough, surrounding stores also didn’t have power. They were only open during the daylight hours & were selling the perishables at discount prices — but after 3 days with no refrigeration, they started giving the stuff away.

            I remember driving around w/a boyfriend looking for a restaurant w/a generator. We thought we lucked out when we finally found one but after 1 bite of my meal I ended up throwing up in the restroom. The chef was preparing spoiled food & covering it with sauces & gravies. We weren’t charged for the meal & we were given a $100 voucher (which we purposefully left on the table). As we were backing out of the parking lot, the manager put a “closed” sign on the door. ๏̯͡๏

            As I’m typing this the wind is howling louder & louder. ⊙.☉

          • Shy-ra

            I turned ten years old the week of the Blizzard of 78. My dad got stuck on 95S in Pawtucket on the way home from work in Norwood, and was able to walk to the old Howard Johnson’s next to the Apex/Ground Round – he didn’t make it home to Cranston for an entire week! My mom worked at RI Hospital and the National Guard brought her home on a truck about 4 days after the storm hit. Good thing my grandmother lived with us or else I would’ve had to stay with the neighbors – no parents!!!

          • Addie2U

            Happy Birthday Shy! I remember that HoJo’s – they were open all night & we used to go there for breakfast after the clubs closed down. The entire dining room was full of glossy eyed patrons. ⊙.☉

            Thank you Addie! Yes- I used to go to children’s birthday parties there when I was young – guess it was pretty “multi-functional” LOL!!!

            Great pics – great memories! We used the wooden sled to run errands to the store – couldn’t drive on the roads for over a week!

          • Addie2U

            I haven’t got an exact estimate yet but we got about 2 feet of snow last night. Couldn’t open our doors & we’ve got snow drifts 1/2 way up our sliders. The winds were so bad, everything under our deck is strewn around the back yard. It’s a mess! Thank God hubby’s home to plow us out & pick up (while I sit in a warm house). (>‿◠)

          • Addie2U

            Within a week or 2 of the 78′ Blizzard we got nailed with an ice storm that was also under-reported & here in the NE between both storms — 100 people died & nearly 5,000 were injured. Throughout the state the ice was so heavy that it took down trees & telephone poles (along with the wires) blocking the majority of roads. People lost prized fruit trees & those that survived took years to produce fruit again.

            Both storms were incredible (& beautiful to look at) but what was amazing was how everyone hunkered down together & helped each other out. Without power for 7 days (some as long as 1 month) it took these massive storms to bring neighbors together who didn’t even know each other’s names. Then once the power came back & the snow started melting, neighbors went back inside & have barely spoken to one another since.
            Snow & ice = warm, friendly neighbors
            Snow & ice melts = Cold, icy neighbors.

          • Shy-ra

A couple of storms ago, they literally had a camera focused on some tree branches – they were reporting on the “windy conditions” which translated to some rustling leaves!! Are you kidding me?! How embarrassing!! And then, the traffic!? Why can’t SoCal residents drive in a little rain? Why?! LOL 😛

          • Flanagan

            Can you BELIEVE it!!! I swear, you would think we were in a blizzard in Northern Siberia. The news crews search desperately for the biggest puddle of water they can find, point the cameras at it to show that yes, the rain is actually falling, then ask if the reporter is going to make it back to the station in one piece. Then the reporter usually says something like “well, it’s touch and go out here….pretty treacherous….well, I’m gonna take a chance and try to make my way back….” Dear God almighty, I wish they would stuff a sock in it. And I wish all these people that panic about driving in the rain would try traversing Buffalo NY after a snow storm. Gads, it really is humiliating. S.Cal. has GOT to be the laughing stock of the rest of the country.
            P.S. New England is SOOOOO beautiful!!!

          • Shy-ra

            So true – so funny!! Love watching the local weather reports – between the “storm” drama and the LA weather ladies dressed in low cut “clubbing” dresses it’s great entertainment!! LOL

          • Flanagan

            Oh geez, can you BELIEVE the clothes these women wear? They look like they’ve been stuffed into sausage casings, that were too small to begin with. What are they thinking? Could they possibly think they look GOOD???

          • Shy-ra

            Sausage casings – LMAO! So funny!

          • Flanagan

          • v blackwell

            Having yourself a grand time, I see. Where have you been???

          • Flanagan

            Well blackwell, where the heck have YOU been?? It’s been ages! We MUST stop letting so much time go by between visits. Meet you back here tomorrow!

        • Addie2U

          The “elephant in the room” = Her parents both being convicted felons OR that damn stuffed elephant (along with the millions of other toys, clothes, shoes, handbags, etc., etc) are filling up her room so much that the walls are closing in! Poor kid! ๏̯͡๏

          • Flanagan

            No doubt though, her convicted parents have convinced her they were unjustly accused and thrown in the slammer. Why did they plead guilty? Oh, that was for the children, of course, so they would get a lesser amount of time in prison. They were targeted because of all those nasty haters out there, and actually are completely innocent.

          • Addie2U

            Plea deal?! What’s that mean?!! That lousy lawyer tricked us. He’s just a hater along with the rest of em’. Ignore them Gia, they’re just jealous of us.⊙.☉

          • Flanagan

            AH HAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Good one Addie!!!!

      • Addie2U

        Not yet!

        • I’m not psychic but I see a reality show in Gia’s future….”16 & Pregnant.”

          • Addie2U

            A few months ago I watched portions of S1 where Teresa said loud & clear → ANY girl that has premarital sex is a “whore” (& her girls would NEVER do that)! ⊙.☉

          • Flanagan

            See above reply to Seuss.

          • Ha! I know for a FACT that’s a lie. Keep in mind, if the banshee’s mouth is moving, she’s lying.

          • Guardian

            Hmmm – yet T said one season that she and Joe did at one of their parent’s cabins.

          • Flanagan

            Wouldn’t Teresa be proud!

          • As sick and twisted as it is, I really think she would be ecstatic!

          • Addie2U

            Especially if the child was a BOY! Joe would finally get the son he’s always wanted.

          • twifan2

            BUT that boy wouldn’t have the Giudice last name. Unless Gia didn’t marry her son’s father & had her maiden name on the child’s birth certificate.

          • Addie2U

            True. I didn’t think it through & knowing how Teresa’s so against premarital sex there’s NO way she would have a child out of wedlock!

          • twifan2

            Addie2U, Addie2U, Addie2U! NOW you know IF there’s enough $$$ in it to be had, Tre will do it! :/

          • Flanagan

            I think you’re right!

      • Anne Green

        Pregnant by 16 I’ve always said…..too soon yet Doc!!!!!

  • Just a jersey girl

    Reading the comments. I think this child should not be in the spotlight at all. She should just concentrate on school and school activities. In her defense I think she sounds better than her Aunt Melissa. Please. Let the whole NJ Franchise never come back

  • RonnieIsBack

    I cannot get past the nose..
    But seriously, this is horrible and she should not have been allowed to do this mess.

  • twifan2

    Can some please explain to me just HOW 3KT is making $$$ off this video fiasco? It’s not on iTunes. YouTube doesn’t pay out that much $$$ when you ‘monetize’ your channel on there. There’s no product endorsing.
    How then???

    • I’m scratching my head just like you are. I think they’re just looking for exposure with this one to keep the felon relevant.

    • Atomicbetty1000

      I think it is to keep their ugly felonious names in the news, and to garner sympathy for the plight of the Guidice.

    • Addie2U

      After reading several comment sections, I believe this video was done to tug at the heartstrings of even the most die-hard “haters”. I’m floored at the # of people writing “this video made be cry”!! ⊙.☉ Gia’s got 14 more months (maybe less) to release some more “sad” songs & by then they’ll be busing in the supporters to greet Teresa on her return.

      • Flanagan

        I wonder if they’re crying because it was so painful to endure.

        • Addie2U

          (◔◡◔)

    • Yolie

      I think they made Gia do it to get sympathy from the public. I personally think it’s disgraceful.

    • Flanagan

      I read an article that said Teresa was banking on Gia’s “singing career” to help out with finances. The reality is, this group is no different from the many other garden variety groups that have stars in their eyes. The music is just not the caliber of groups that do make it to the top. I can’t imagine thousands of little girl fans dragging their parents to the music venues to sing and scream along with the warbling of KT3. (Is that the name of the group?). That’s the only way I can think of to make money. The KT3 Tour. Oh please.

      • Guardian

        Re the little girls – parents may not be that into having them support someone bemoaning the fate of a felon and pointing the finger at the world. Especially if she shows up in that push up bra she is sporting on her twitter page.

        • Flanagan

          Also, if they dress the way they did in the first video. I would hope MOST parents would not want their daughters identifying with that.

          • HalleG

            Agreed, I think oversexualizing young girls is starting not to be so cool anymore. If she was already 18 it would be different.

          • Flanagan

            So many young girls want to grow up so fast, and I think a huge part of that is advertising and having such easy access to seeing it on TV, and the assorted remote gadgets that are so abundantly available. They don’t understand, that they have the rest of their lives to be “grown up”, and once they are, they can’t go back and be a kid again. I used to tell my children that, when they were young, and would bemoan having to “wait till they’re older”. I would tell them, they had this one time in their lives to be kids, because they would spend the vast majority of their lives being adults.
            There is just something so unseemly about 13 and 14 year old girls dressing so provocatively and suggestively. They still look like the kids they are, and it’s really disturbing to see it.

      • HalleG

        not to mention they are 3KT DIAMONDS!! I guess they think nobody knows KT is for gold and CT for diamonds. Basically they have declared themselves scrap metal gold.

      • Atomicbetty1000

        I see the problem with the groups style. There is no depth to the music. 1st song Britney Spears re-do., there is no competition, most would rather listen to the original and watch her. So, that was dumb. 2nd song, Christmas, Season of Joy…. Not a good song, but children might sing along as the phrase repeats far too many times. 3rd song trite whining from an immature teenage girl. The song is not relatable to most of Gia’s possible fans. Plus, whose mom is going to buy it when Gia wears more make up than her monkey mother. With bad songs and overly made up faces, bad costumes, and inappropriate dancing, a fan base is doubtful.

        • Flanagan

          Spot on right-no contest as to which video people would prefer. I did suffer through the Season of Joy video. Eech, it was so painful. And the “single” Gia put out was cringe worthy beyond words. Poor Gia so desperately wants to have a singing/dancing career, but at this point, I doubt there’s enough coaching on earth that’s going to improve her voice quality. And the “song” was so melancholy and self pitying, I can’t imagine hordes of other teenagers gathering to have sing-a-longs.

  • RealitytvJunkie

    This blog was well done and I agree with the comments also.

  • I1ST5XS

    Can’t wait to see Gia on American Idol, The Voice and America’s Got Talent! LOL!

    • Atomicbetty1000

      Oh, they would tear her talentless singing and song writing apart. Gia would be gone in an instant from the show. Reality would slap the ugly off of her face over her poor selection of words and her really bad voice. Also, does anyone else remember Teresa taking Gia to a talent agent who told Theresa Gia need to talk without the Jersey accent? Did anyone notice the accent in the interview. It seems to be gone. I guess Theresa decided it wasn’t so “cute” after all.

      • I1ST5XS

        yes – I remember the talent agent. She was begging to get that kid into any kind of entertainment business that she could, modeling, acting, singing, dancing. It was all a fail! The ultimate stage mom! LMAO! Famewhores!

  • Flanagan

    Well, if Gia is not successful in supporting the family financially, T & J have three more daughters to exploit.

  • cait

    Don’t want to be mean, but those two girls on GI(mme)A’s site are identical, with same nose, so who’s the DADDY !

  • HalleG

    Not a fan of the video or of a 13yr old saying she’s a a queen. Someone should dub these lyrics over the stipper looking video for a laugh. Humility & honesty don’t hang around this family.

  • Mary N Steve Miller

    Leave the child alone! She is innocent and did nothing wrong. She is trying to survive a devastating event in her life and if she chooses a song and a music video in her quest then shut up!!! Bring the child of a very evil predator, I have been shunned, threatened and ridiculed by society. She is 13 and I was in my forty’s when I first discovered what had been going on. Leave her alone to deal any way she is able. I don’t think Miss Manners wrote an etiquette book for the proper way to behave when you parents go to jail. God save each one of your souls for your harsh words to and about this innocent young lady! If your patent did something wrong, how would you have people treat YOU??!!
