The award for the most over-the-top wedding in Housewife history perhaps goes to Teresa Giudice, who spent $10,000 on her hair alone. Many Bravo stars (including castmates from Real Housewives of New Jersey) came to celebrate the union.
Two of her co-stars, of course, skipped out on the nuptials. Unfortunately, they happened to be her family members. According to reports, her brother Joe Gorga and sister-in-law Melissa refused to attend after Teresa brought up a rumor about Melissa’s alleged affair.
In a September 13 interview with E! News, Teresa addressed the situation with Joe and Melissa.
“It’s so sad,” said the star at the Nolcha New York Fashion Week show. “It’s not how I wanted things to end up.”
Does she believe the three family members will make up in the future? “No, no, no, that’s really it,” she answered. “That’s it.”
Though the details surrounding her wedding drama will remain a mystery until the episodes air, Teresa updated fans on her new life as a married woman. “Amazing, absolutely amazing,” she said. “It is just amazing. Louie is everything I have ever wanted and more, he really is. He’s my tall dark and handsome prince. I finally found him. I never thought I would find my prince at 48 but I did.”
The now-50-year-old claimed there were no “mishaps” at her wedding, and they lucked out with the weather. “It was supposed to rain, but then the skies opened up,” she said, “and I really feel like my parents were with me because the sun was shining through the clouds when we were actually getting married.”
Teresa’s daughter Gia, who was present in the interview (alongside sister Milania), revealed her favorite wedding memory was the “breathtaking” moment when her mom stepped down the aisle with her $10,000 haircut.
“It fit her personality, it fit her perfectly,” said Gia. “And honestly just seeing her walk out of the gates, you saw her whole look the second she walked out of the church doors.”
“It was insane,” Milania chimed in. “It was the most beautiful wedding ever.”
The Real Housewives of New Jersey season 13 is set to premiere on Bravo in late 2022 or early 2023.
