Last season on The Real Housewives of New Jersey I started to get the feeling that Teresa Giudice’s oldest daughter Gia Giudice was being used to help propel some story lines along a little too much. It’s one thing if a kid shows up in a scene being a kid, it’s a whole different ball of wax when they take over the storyline and totally add to the already unnecessary drama and that is exactly what Gia has done.
Two weeks into the new season Gia has already played a major role in how Teresa chose to deal with estranged sister-in-law Melissa Gorga. When Tre didn’t know what to text Gia grabbed her phone and fired off a nasty screed for her, leaving viewers appalled. Gia is only eleven and when not knee deep in the family drama she seems to be more of a friend to Teresa then her daughter!
I kind of suspected last season that Teresa might be the kind of parent that somewhere along the way becomes their child’s’ BFF rather than the person that helps to guide them onto a good path in life. After seeing the most recent episode I’m sure of it and aside from acting far more grown up than her 11 years, Gia is also a seriously disrespectful brat!
Have you caught a glimpse of Teresa and Gia together on camera? I think Teresa is really going to have her work cut out for her in the next few years because Gia is going to have every intention of doing whatever she pleases! Is it wrong of Bravo to knowingly exploit Gia? Clearly Teresa only cares about the fame and selling magazine covers but should the network have a conscience?
