Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice has no regrets about getting implants.
The 37-year-old Giudice — perhaps best known for flipping a table during a heated spat with Danielle Staub on the first season of their Bravo show — says she never minded her "little boobies" … until she had kids.
"I was an A-cup, and I liked them. They were perky. I didn't mind being small," she says. "But after I breast fed, they looked different. I looked at them and went, Ewwwwww. They were deflated. I was just a big nipple."
She says she was especially bothered how her breasts looked in a swimsuit.
"I always had to get padded tops!" she says. "I never liked how I looked in bathing suits. I never wanted to put lingerie on. I feel you need boobs for lingerie."
After she had surgery, "my dad said, 'You should have just gotten them done when you were 18 and not told me.' I was like, 'WHAT!'"
But he isn't the reason she got new breasts (which, she says, she doesn't consider to be "big").
"I did it just for me," says Giudice. "My husband still loved me with my little boobies … My husband didn't care. We were married for nine years when I got them done. He still loved me the way I was." Now she says, "I feel so much sexier. Way sexier!"
The reality star — who returns to Bravo May 3 for the Real Housewives' second season — says she's also "much more sexual."
"Trust me, our sex life was always good," she says, "but now I'm more confident with my body, so it's even better!"
What if her four daughters — Gia, 9, Gabriella, 5, Milania, 4, and Adriana, 7 months, – got their breasts re-done when they're older?
Says Giudice, "I wouldn't mind it."
