Gia Giudice and Frankie Catania Just Proved Their Friendship Is Still Going Strong (PICS)

The Real Housewives of New Jersey kids hit the Drake concert together — and their mothers Teresa Giudice and Dolores Catania came along too!

Friends who rock out to Drake together stay together. Gia Giudice and Frankie Catania, who are longtime friends, recently went to Madison Square Garden to check out a concert from the Canadian superstar.

How to Watch

The pictures The Real Housewives of New Jersey kids posted not only prove their friendship is still going strong but that Dolores Catania and Teresa Giudice can appreciate a good Drake song too!

In a series of Instagram Stories from July 19, Gia shared a peek into her night at Madison Square Garden, where she and her crew seemed to have luxe box seats. 

One image showed Gia and Frankie with Dolores. The New Jersey mom looked like quite the rockstar herself in a shrunken black tank top, skintight pants, and oversize earrings. Friends Gia and Frankie followed suit, wearing casual black threads and big smiles.

Teresa also came out for the show and brought her forever plus-one. Other photos from the evening showed Luis “Louie” Ruelas posing happily at the concert. Dolores brought a date too: Her beau, Paul “Paulie” Connell, came along, as did his two teenage sons. 

In short, it was a full house (or suite) at the Drake show, and it looks like a good time was had by all. Photos were snapped, drinks were sipped, and a combined family with a long shared history (more on that below) got to listen to some great live music. See the pics below.

Gia Giudice and Frankie Catania have been friends for years

As RHONJ viewers know, Frankie and Gia have always been close friends. Back in 2019, they even went to Gia’s senior prom together (you can peep the sweet moment in the clip above). 

After that, their moms shared some thoughts on whether they thought the two should date. “He is the sweetest, sweetest, sweetest, sweetest kid. I mean, he’s amazing,” Teresa gushed at BravoCon in 2019. “He’s such a gentleman to Gia that I hope, you never know what happens down the road.”

Around that time, Dolores confirmed they are “close friends,” adding in an interview with People: “If I could have married them there [on prom night] — like, Gia was the perfect little Italian girl… They were beautiful. Then Gia called me to let me know they were on their way home okay.”

Alas, Gia has been dating Christian Carmichael since 2020, and Frankie is just fine with that. “I’m not mad at all. As long as she is happy and he treats her right, I am happy for her,” Frankie told Page Six when the two became an item. “At the end of the day, she’s my friend, and if something was to happen in the future with us — time will tell.”
