Gia will keep the Giudice name alive by filming her own reality show while her mom serves jail time. Teresa ‘knows viewers will tune in’ and is obsessed with making it big — but is she also exploiting her daughters? Here’s what we know!
Gia Giudice, 13, will take the reigns while mom Teresa Giudice, 42, spends 15 months behind bars. Teresa has been nothing but supportive of Gia’s music career with girl group 3KT, so it’s no wonder she thinks a reality TV show of the girls would “get great ratings.” But is she using it to help herself, too?
Teresa Giudice’s Daughter’s Reality Show: Is She Exploiting Gia?
Teresa has seen star power in her daughter for a long time, and pushed Gia into show business from a young age, a source close to the Giudice’s tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
“Teresa thinks the show would get great ratings. She’s really confident once the networks see some of the footage there will be a bidding war for the rights. She’s praying that the show gets picked up and is a huge success by the time she gets out of prison,” our source says.
While Teresa obviously loves Gia and has shown massive support for her music career, Gia’s reality show seems like a win-win situation for Gia and Teresa!
“Teresa knows that she and Joe will have to pull back from the public eye while they are in prison. Gia having a show is a great way to keep their family in the public eye,” our source continues. “She feels like Gia’s show is a great thing for everyone. She knows people will say she’s exploiting her children but it’s what Gia and the girls want. Teresa couldn’t hold them back from show business if she tried. Teresa knows viewers will turn in to see the fall out from her prison sentence.”
Hey, if the show benefits both Gia and Teresa then more power to them — they both get exactly what they want!
Gia Giudice’s Reality Show
News broke out that Gia was set to have her own reality show with 3KT on Dec. 29. Without Teresa or Gia’s dad Joe Giudice around, Gia will start to make her own name for herself.
“It will be all about her group, 3KT. They’ve been filming already for two months,” a source told E! News. “So far, the footage is really fun. Once the pilot is completed, they’ll start shopping it to the networks. All the girls’ families are in it here and there. But it’s not a show about the grownups; it’s all about the girls. Everyone’s very excited about it.”
