How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 14 premiere May 5th at 8/9c on Bravo and stream next day on Peacock.

The 18-year-old, who is the second eldest daughter of The Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Teresa Giudice and her ex-husband, Joe Giudice, marked a major college acceptance achievement on Friday, January 27.

Gabriella, who previously got into the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University in early January, is closing out the month with an acceptance to the University of Michigan. 

Teresa posted an Instagram Story featuring Gabriella reading her congratulatory acceptance letter from the prestigious school. The proud mom later shared Stories highlighting more from Gabriella’s acceptance celebration, which included her holding blue and yellow star balloons (a tribute to the university’s official colors) and a bouquet of flowers. Gabriella herself showed her school spirit by wearing a University of Michigan T-shirt for the momentous occasion.

It looks like the Michigan school could be her first choice, as her older sister, Gia Giudice, posted an Instagram Story about how Gabriella would be a “new addition” to the class of 2027.

“Let’s go UMich. Newest addition,” Gia wrote in a now-deleted Story, along with blue and yellow heart emojis. “So beyond proud of my little sis. You are a rockstar!!”

Though Gabriella’s father couldn’t celebrate the achievement in person (since he lives in the Bahamas), he posted about how proud he was on Instagram. 

“I’m speechless,” Joe captioned a video of his daughter touring the UMich campus. “Congrats Gabriella.”

A few of Teresa’s RHONJ castmates sent their love to Gabriella in the comments of Joe’s post.

Dolores Catania wrote, “Amazing,” along with three red heart emojis, while Jennifer Aydin added, “Congrats to Gabriella!”

As fans await official confirmation from Gabriella regarding her college plans, they can get ready to see her have a major presence on RHONJ Season 13.

As her older sister, Gia, teased, she was “really proud” of Gabriella for sharing her opinions on Season 13. 

The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 13 premieres Tuesday, February 7, at 9 p.m. ET/PT with a 75-minute supersize episode. Each week, the episode will stream the next day on Peacock
