Gia Giudice is growing up before our eyes—see for yourself!—and her parents have begun to prepare for her maturity on last night's episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey by sitting down with her to have "The Talk."
As expected, the discussion about boys and the perils of growing up had some, er, awkward moments:
"No kissing involved. Not until you're 21," Gia's dad Joe told his daughter over gelatto. "Boys are going to be asking you for different things, maybe wanting to kiss, this and that, but boys ... you don't give them anything they want. You're getting older. I need to talk to you about these things. Boys, smoking, all this other stuff ... it's all part of growing up."
Of course, Gia seemed a bit squeamish with the whole thing, but tell us what you think: did Joe handle the situation well... or should the "Birds and the Bees" talk be left to Teresa.
