Ever wonder what our Bravolebs looked like before they were Bravolebs? Each Thursday, we'll celebrate #TBT and dig through the archives for a vintage photo from the past—or revisit a memorable moment from one of our shows—and share some backstory on the picture. And who better to kick things off with than Teresa Giudice?
The daughter of Italian immigrants, Teresa Giudice was born and raised in a Catholic home in Paterson, New Jersey. She had her First Communion in the late-'70s, where she donned an elegant white dress for the sacrament.
Giudice's family is still true to its faith. Most recently, Teresa celebrated her daughter Gabriella's First Communion. "I love to go all out for parties," she shared recently. "Especially once-in-a-lifetime events...Gabrielle wanted something really simple with just close family and friends."
