Born on May 18, 1972 in Paterson, New Jersey, Teresa Giudice is proud to be an Italian Jersey girl starring on Bravo's Real Housewives of New Jersey.
After earning a degree in Fashion Marketing and Management from Berkeley College, she worked in the fashion industry and eventually married childhood friend and entrepreneur, Joe Giudice. The couple have four daughters together: Gia, Gabriella, Milania, and Audriana.
Known for being an instigator and having a heated temper, Giudice has developed feuds with the other NJ Housewives as well as Bethenny Frankel, from Bravo's Real Houswives of New York. Most memorable was her table-flipping incident on the reality show.
She is the owner of TG Fabulicious, an online boutique and in May 2010 her cookbook, "Skinny Italian" hit stores.
In Oct. 2009, she and her husband filed for bankruptcy citing an $11 million debt.
