Teresa Giudice is a reality television cast-member and fitness competitor, best known for starring in The Real Housewives of New Jersey.

Besides appearing on the show, Giudice has written multiple New York Times bestseller cookbooks and was featured on Donald Trump's The Celebrity Apprentice 5.

On December 23, 2015, she was released from federal prison after serving 11 months of a 15-month sentence for fraud. She is known for her extravagant lifestyle and highly publicized financial and legal troubles leading up to her prison sentence. Her husband, born Giuseppe but called Joe recently completed his 41-month sentence and has been staying in "a facility in western Pennsylvania which houses immigration detainees" since his release from federal prison. He was granted a temporary deportation delay in federal court last week.

We first met Gia Giudice when she was only 8 years old. With everyone watching, Gia, the oldest of four daughters, was forced to grow up fast, blossoming into a young adult in front of the cameras. Today, she's all grown up and pursuing her own dreams and passions while dealing with the realities of both her parents doing time in prison following financial fraud.

Here are some pics from when she was younger:

Gia recently turned 18 and you can see she has grown into a beautiful young lady.

Now Gia is celebrating the end of her senior year, and recently announced where she'll be attending college this fall: Rutgers University! Gia was joined by all her friends for her high-school prom on Thursday. They gathered at the Giudice home for refreshments and lots of photos before heading off to the big dance.

In a clip shared to her Instagram Story Teresa personality fawns over her daughter�s escort for the evening: RHONJ costar Dolores Catania�s son, Frankie.

�Hi, Frankie! That�s my daughter�s prom date. Look how handsome he is,� Teresa said.

�So gorgeous!� Teresa exclaimed as Gia descended the staircase at the beginning of the evening with flashing cameras all around her.

This is Gia's second prom of the season. �Prom round one,� she captioned a Thursday Instagram photo of the dress, adding a blue heart emoji.

In the sweet snap, Gia poses in front of a tree and shows off the corsage of white flowers on her wrist. She wore her hair curled in a half-up, half-down style by Lucia Casazza with makeup by Priscilla DiStasio.

Good luck at Rutgers University Gia!
