Wendy Williams Blasts Gia Giudice For Doing Interviews & Glamorizing Prison

Posted on Jan 27 2015 - 9:41am by BeachSpin

Teresa Giudice

Gia Giudice, might be “Just 13,” but she is certainly no shrinking adolescent violet. Although she has just begun a time in her life that she will likely want to forget, she is working hard to stay teen relevant by singing (sort of), dancing, Tweeting, and was even recently interviewed by E! News.

Many people were horrified at the idea of an adult interviewer putting an obviously vulnerable child in the awkward spot of answering questions about her jailed reality star mother, and were even further mortified by the young girl’s responses. Gia had just visited her criminal mother, and reported that Teresa was like “amazing,” Teresa looked …like amazing, prison was like so good, they are like so close, life is great… until that is, the timely moment arrives to switch gears and haul in some fresh public sympathy. This uncomfortable public display did not escape the eyes of Wendy Williams, and unfortunately for Joe and Teresa, Wendy decided to put the Bravo family on blast, nailing them on her show. She zeroed in on the obvious problem of selling the idea that a federal prison is like a yearlong walk in the park.

“Stop talking about jail being someplace that it’s not like it’s supposed to be. Trying to make it sound hot to go to jail. Jail is not hot. Jail is not sexy.”

Wendy went on the describe the plethora of beauty products available to inmates who want to “look amazing” for their visitors, calling Teresa out for using a full makeup job to gloss over the hard truth of life in the slammer.

 “While I’m all for Teresa not looking her worst, to absolutely have it turned out and to possibly be infusing in her 14 year old daughters head that it’s okay to do a crime or go to jail is absolutely wrong.”

Joe didn’t escape unscathed, with Wendy handing him a healthy dose common sense logic.

 “I don’t know why Joe, the father, would even have the little girl speaking out like this. Am I the only one that just found something wrong with this  girl talking to E! news? I’m just saying, Joe, pay attention to what your girls are doing, because right now that’s not real good.”

Gia Giudice is a MINOR, and would be living a protected, quiet, media free life if that is what her parents desired.  Unfortunately, there’s no free from collection income in a quiet and protected life.

  • She Stinks!

    Wendy’s comments on Tre start around the 13 minute mark.

    Wendy is 100% right. Jail is not fun or amazing, and Tre is a convicted felon, forever. Its not something that can be expunged from your record.

    • Guardian

      Judge Salas correctly said that T thought she was above the law. I don’t think T views being a felon as any kind of a liability. As for G, she is uprooted from reality and rooted in denial – a chip off the ole’ cell block.

    • Anne Green

      This goes back to Teresa and Joe not believing that they truly committed crimes. They were wrongly accused by the Federal Government, a set up because she is a Bravolebrity. They have conveyed this wrongdoing to their children. This interview by Gia was her way of saying “my Mom didn’t do anything wrong….you “haters” won’t break her”. “She is amazing and having fun and will be stronger than ever”. How sad that Gia has become Teresa’s pipeline from prison to the media.

      • Melba59

        So once again, even going by that warped logic, the Gs are being truly sh*tty “parents”. If you truly believed all celebrities were set up by the govt. and end up in jail, wouldn’t you be saying to your children Hell No you won’t be a celebrity b/c we don’t want the same fate to happen to you and you end up in prison. But no – Mom of the century pushes her kid to be a celebrity – who cares if all celebrities get set up and go to prison?? Momma needs a new pair of shoes.

    • twifan2

      ‘Jail is not fun or amazing’ <—THAT! Exactly, so why is Gia trying to convince us of that?! Aside from her being Trelusional too. :/

  • DLister

    I wish every single teenage girl would receive a painful zap of electricity each time she says “like.” In the clip above, Gia must have abused that word about 50 times. If I had my zap wish, her hair would be fried into a late-60’s Art Garfunkel right now.

    • Birdie

      You’re like SO funny! LOL

  • MidwestMiddie

    What’s wrong with the Giudice Family? Everything!
    What’s wrong with Bravo for keeping Teresa on the RHNJ when she filed
    for an $11 million Bankruptcy one year after being hired for the show? Everything!!!!!

  • MorningYawn

    The long term damage that this will do to Gia is alarming. She is 13 and allowed to be the spokesperson for the family? They are getting out their message through her? Makes no sense at all. Of course, what 13 year old wouldn’t relish the chance to be on tv and in videos. The parents have failed again. Where is the humility on their part and the parenting (setting limitations, sheltering children from adult situations). So heartbreaking.

    • TeeCeeWillow

      If by long term damage, you mean fame and fortune then sure. Gia is an adult now, at 13 most people are out of school, having babies, and promoting their career. Why does it get people so stirred up to see someone pursue their dreams and spread their soaring wings of talent?

      • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

        Honey put down the kool-aid, find your nurse & take your meds.

      • Birdie

        When exactly does the every man federal prison sentence happen within the wing spreading pursuit?

      • MorningYawn

        I’m hoping you were being sarcastic, but in case not-

        I don’t get stirred up by people pursuing their dreams. What my comment was trying to say was that her PARENTS have allowed this to go too far. She should not be the family spokesperson on E! Call it what you will, but that’s what she us doing. She should not be the lynchpin of her mothers (parents) agenda to keep a positive slant in the media. If they are going to permit her to do these videoes, they should keep their clothes on and the family PR agenda out of the lips of the group.

  • Birdie

    We should be hearing about Gia partying it up any day now…then DUIs, then pregnancy…in whatever order. Hopefully her sister Teresa will be out in time to be by her side by the toilet, in court, and for her MTV audition.

  • TeeCeeWillow

    I think Wendy is suffering from a fatal case of jealousy. She always goes against the most popular people at the moment to create controversy, and to get attention to herself. She probably wishes she were Gia or Teresa, or she wishes she were with Joe who is so sexy. Gia is a celebrity, and celebrities give interviews so their fans can be updated with what they have going on. It’s no big deal to go to federal prison, we all will at some point so why is everyone making such a big deal about it? Most people break the law all the time, the only difference is they don’t get caught because they don’t go on tv and have jealous people rat them out. 13 is not too young to be on tv, and to be famous.

    • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

      Yeah because having a radio career since 1989 to ’98 & then again from 2001 to ’09 & has a prominent TV show on a major network makes Wendy a very jelly ‘Non-Celebrity”!

    • You got to be kidding TeeCee…..you joking right? WHO in their right mind would be jealous of a dumb, UGLY, crook and her fugly children?

      • Birdie

        You forgot about drunkie Joe being sexy….HAHAHAHA!

        • That person can’t be serious.

          • WestCoastFeed

            Of course she is serious! Seriously funny. I can’t wait for my turn to spend a few years in prison.

          • Birdie

            Yes…maybe we will finally meet then!

          • Yeah, I guess. I find “it” disturbing. People with that mindset make me nervous for society on a whole.

          • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

            Fortunately people like Minka Blah Blah Blah and what’s her name…TeeHeeWill-OH usually keep either to themselves and their computer with questionable material in it’s memory banks or they hang out in very unsavory locations for not so licit reasons with other folks who have “cash for play” ideas.
            Not even a funny joke possible…just a waste of time and intelligence.


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

            Hi West I think once the banks open up again tomorrow, I’m just gonna head straight out to start my criminal enterprises & spree!
            I wanna be a celeb too. I’m soo jelly of those sisters!

          • HAHAHAHAHA! I can’t…..

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

            Well, the banks are closed today or I’d really be motivated! LMBO!

          • Raine Woman

            Would you mind swinging out this way to pick me up? I need a new snowblower…and a really big truck to get it home. We’re going for the cash, right? I don’t have time to whip up fake anything for ‘loans. 🙂

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

            Yup! Goodfellas’ style Birdie. Cause we bad! Ha-ha-ha-ha!

          • Raine Woman

            Hi Tiger! We got somewhere between 18-20″. I love me a good storm so I was out there having a ball….a snowball that is! Glad you made it through!

          • Fritz the. At

            Doc, for a minute I thought it was serious and before my head blew off, I got the joke. Sadly, there are people who are like this.

          • Hi Fritz! He/she had me going for awhile…lol. Yes, unfortunately, people with this twisted mindset do exist.

            Hope all is well on your end.

      • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

        Nobody with a BRAIN would be jealous of a couple of classic nimrods like Joe and Teresa Fraudice!

    • Huh?

      Ok, I almost started to take you seriously, but then you said what you did to Birdie below. Nice sense of humor, almost fooled me.

  • italiano bambino

    GIA DELUSIONALDICE is getting the attention she need it. NEGATIVE one but she’s getting it.. Teresa complain about melissa and joe not wanting them to take pics with her kids. BUT gia is on a Interview tour to say mommy is having a blast at jail.. WTF.

  • RonnieIsBack

    they are simply shameful…

    • Sunny

      It is shameful. I hope to goodness someone is keeping a close eye on Gia and her activities, if it’s not going to be her FATHER. The world is full of predators and Gia is really, “like” so inexperienced to be out there in it unsupervised. Where and who are the adults in this family?

      • italiano bambino

        Was there any to begin with is the main question

        • Sunny

          I thought there was at least a semblance. Now, it seems that a newly 14 year old has taken on her mothers persona and it’s NOT GOOD. Maybe I’m over-thinking?

          • mytwocents

            Any young teen that proclaims their parent as their “best friend or more sibling-like” should be a major red flag that something is off. This is when the young teen is trying to assert themself as an independent adult without the experience and development to make sound decisions and consider long-term consequences. This is when a responsible parent needs to be setting boundaries which the budding adult “resents” until they are old enough to appreciate that the parent was doing so out of love.

      • Yolie

        You can tell from the video, she thinks she’s an adult. I doubt there’s anyone looking out for her best interest.

        • Sunny

          This is not cool. Sure, no one is burning her with cigarettes, but it bothers me that Gia would be taken advantage of somehow, and realizing it’s her parents that are doing it. They are devolving as human beings ;(

  • italiano bambino

    Is GIA is looking to get attention for that group she’s in.. #FELONISNOTTHEWAY

  • TeeCeeWillow

    First of all, what’s wrong with glamorizing prison? The first time my mom went away to prison I thought it was amazing, I could see her way more often than I did when she was home because she was always working, and there were all of these personal trainers at her disposal. She used to say that running for her life from the mexican girl gangs was amazing cardio and when she ripped out other inmates hair and bonded it to her own it made one of the best weaves she ever had. They were super creative in there and made amazing fabulous makeup and hair products. She lived way better in there than we did on the outside.
    Second of all, to anyone who says Joe Giudice should be keeping Gia from giving interviews and following her dream of being a celebrity needs to remember Gia is an adult. She has to provide for the family and anyone who keeps her from her livelihood has a heart of stone.

    • italiano bambino

      LOL i just can’t

      • twifan2

        Hi Hi Bam! 🙂
        Just ROTFLMAO at that post! :’D

        • italiano bambino

          Shit is funny

      • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

        You reaction was exactly the same as mine!
        I think that in this case LOL should stand for Load of Lunchmeat, ‘cuz either it’s total sarcasm or it’s Minka Blah Blah Blah’s sister comin’ on to prove that she can spell anything that vaguely makes some sense to HER.
        Such a widget.

    • twifan2

      Until Gia can prove to me that she has at least half the talent this woman has, then I have a ‘heart of stone’! 🙂
      When did Gia become an Emancipated Minor?

      • TeeCeeWillow

        Daddy said that as soon as your boobs show you’re an adult and you get put to work! That Estelle is a great singer, but until her mom and dad are in federal prison I don’t see her being very relatable to the average American. I read a recent statistic that the majority of Americans are now incarcerated.

    • WestCoastFeed

      You tell em. TeeCee. Remember Gia is just following in her Grandma’s footsteps. Filomena married at 14. It is high time she stepped up and took care of her family.

  • All About The Tea

    Hi AATT’ers,

    Be on the lookout for a Real Housewives legal blog tomorrow morning from our very own Stacy Slotnick, Esq.

  • Regina George

    In 20 Years we’ll see Teresa’s daughters in prison just like their “amazing” mom. Haha what losers!

  • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

    FOURTEEN…she’s freakin’ 14 and she wears more make-up on her face in one day, than I have ever worn in all of my combined years of wearing make-up.
    And you know, that tart will wonder why, some degenerate grease ball expects to think that when she says “no”, that it actually means “YES” and then he’ll slap her around and then do her dirty! He won’t give a rats if she’s under age.
    And her incredibly dumb “parents” sanction this behavior. Well, why the hell not. Gia’s a working girl NOW! As if, that makes a difference to either of her bum mother and father!
    This is sickening beyond the pale of vomit!

  • italiano bambino

    Ok so i finally saw the interview. …. LIKE. LIKE LIKE SO LIKE SO CLOSE LIKE SISTER LIKE mmmm problem number one teresa should be a mother NOT act like gia’s sister

  • Wrenniethepooh

    I want to start by saying this will sound snotty…but, you know we are expecting a girl to make RATIONAL and SANE decisions when she doesn’t have two adults among her who are capable of doing that for themselves! She doesn’t have a great parenting role model to look towards. So it doesn’t surprise me at her lack of vocabulary. I assumed from watching it that she was told to say something along the lines of, “Your mom is holding together strong, and she’s persevering” and it came out as “Amazing”…again, not like she has a loquacious role model around her to explain synonyms and the like. I just wouldn’t be surprised if she was encouraged to give the interview, and it backfired. HOPEFULLY there won’t be anymore. She should be focused on school and not bringing more attention to her family, who isn’t exactly out of the legal woods. Not holding my breath though.

    • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

      I think that what you wrote sounds intelligent, logical, practical and straight ahead correct. Good Stuff!

  • truth

    Unfortunately I could not help myself from watching Gia’s sorry a$$ attempt at being a star; the only reason she is relevant is because her parents are in the limelight of CONFICTED felons, in the limelight of “Reality TV”. Gia is nothing but a joke, the whole family is a joke. They don’t understand the ONLY reason we follow Teresa is because she is a JOKE! There is no talent, no MOXY, in what ever they do. They are CRIMINALS! The body is attempting to get a way with not paying the people that made your sister (aka fertility clinic)! How dare you question the public and there judgement, it is valid! YOU, Gia get out of the line of fire

    • I1ST5XS

      Truth is correct!!

  • Atomicbetty1000

    Seems appropriate for Giudice daughters that have no parental guidance:
    Dear Little One,

    Recently, your mother and I were searching the Internet, and Google returned a list of the most popular searches in the world. Perched at the top was “How to keep him interested.”

    It startled me. I scanned several of the countless articles about how to be sexy, when to bring him a beer versus a sandwich, and the ways to make him feel smart and superior.

    And I got angry.

    Little One, it is not, has never been, and never will be your job to “keep him interested.”

    Little One, your only task is to know deeply in your soul—in that unshakable place that isn’t rattled by rejection and loss and ego—that you are worthy of interest. (If you can remember that everyone else is worthy of interest also, the battle of your life will be mostly won. But that is a letter for another day.)

    If you can trust your worth in this way, you will be attractive in the most important sense of the word: You will attract a boy who is both capable of interest and who wants to spend his one life investing all his interest in you.

    Little One, I want to tell you about the boy who doesn’t need to be kept interested, because he knows you are interesting:

    I don’t care if he puts his elbows on the dinner table—as long as he puts his eyes on the way your nose scrunches when you smile. And then can’t stop looking.

    I don’t care if he can’t play a bit of golf with me—as long as he can play with the children you give him and revel in all the glorious and frustrating ways they are just like you.

    I couldn’t care less how he votes—as long as he wakes up every morning and daily elects you to a place of honor in your home and a place of reverence in his heart.

    In the end, Little One, if you stumble across a man like that, and he and I have nothing else in common, we will have the most important thing in common: you.
