Can You Guess Which Real Housewife Just Won a Bodybuilding Award?
If you thought Teresa Giudice was good at flipping tables during her OG Real Housewives of New Jersey days, wait till you see her now — furniture doesn’t stand a chance against the reality TV star. Giudice has muscles to spare, which she showed off by competing in the bikini division of a bodybuilding competition. Even more impressive? The super-toned and fit mom of four took home third-place honors.
Giudice flaunted her ripped physique in a teensy two-piece at the NPC South Jersey Bodybuilding Championship in Medford, New Jersey, on Saturday and clearly impressed the judges.
Since being released from federal prison in December 2016 after serving nearly a year for mail, wire and bankruptcy fraud, Giudice has been sharing her fitness journey with fans on social media. Most recently, she posted a video on May 31 of herself in the gym working on her shoulders.
However, Giudice remained mum about the bodybuilding competition — as of yet, she hasn’t released any sort of statement about her participation. But according to a People source, "She has been training for this bodybuilding competition since December. She wanted a new challenge and pushed herself to the extreme. Right now she is in the best shape of her life."
C’mon, girl! Be proud of all that hard work. Shout it from the rooftops!
Perhaps the reality TV star has been laying low to avoid stealing the spotlight from another member of the Giudice fam: her daughter Milania, 12, who released her first music album last week.
At this point, little is known about Milania’s musical stylings. “Trap Queen” rapper Fetty Wap attended the preteen’s album release party, which would suggest that the album contains at least some rap. Naturally, the prevailing speculation seems to be that the details of Milania’s budding career will be revealed during the next season of RHONJ.
It’s a safe assumption, though, that anything Milania does will be spirited. Having grown up in the spotlight, this middle Giudice daughter has never been shy about her diva ways. On Sunday, Teresa posted a photo to Instagram that seemed to capture her daughter’s sassy essence. In the pic, Milania relaxes in a bikini atop a golden inflatable swan. Giudice’s caption? “Goddess!!”
Noticeably absent from both his wife's bodybuilding competition and his daughter's album party is Joe Giudice, who is currently serving his own 41-month sentence in federal prison.
