By Jill Sederstrom

Cue the waterworks! Milania Giudice is feeling the love for older sister Gabriella — and it’s bringing Teresa Giudice to tears. 

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey Sundays at 8/7c on Bravo and stream next day on Peacock.

Milania offered a sweet message to her sibling as Gabriella prepared to head off to college in Season 14, Episode 3 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey.

 “You have just always been such a good role model as a sister and I love you,” Milania told Gabriella.

Are Milania and Gabrielle Giudice close? 

The touching moment had their mom, Teresa, tearing up as she reflected on how far the sisters' relationship has come since their days of bickering with one another.

“It’s really heartwarming to see how close Gabriella and Milania are. They used to fight when they were younger,” she told producers. “But now, it’s so cute. They’re 16 months apart. They always hung out together in school. I love the bond that they have together.”

“You worked your butt off and I watched it every single day,” Milania told her before launching into a cute example of her sister’s commitment.

“At lunch, she’s like this on her computer,” she said, making a typing motion with her hands. “I’m like ‘Gabriella, do you want to have a conversation?’ She’s like, ‘I’ve got to study for my test next period.’”

The celebratory dinner had the whole family reflecting on the large hole that will be left by Gabriella’s absence as she prepared to head to the University of Michigan.

 “I’m so excited for you to go to college and have the best time ever,” Milania told her.

Louie Jr. — the son of Teresa’s husband, Luis “Louie” Ruelas — also reflected on the moment Gabriella learned she’d been accepted to the Midwest institution.

“It feels like just yesterday we were in your room, like, looking at all your applications and all of a sudden the confetti came on the screen, you know, [and] said you got into Michigan,” he said. 

For Gabriella’s younger sister Audriana, her presence will be missed in more tangible ways.

“What’s going to happen when I need help on my math homework?” she asked. 

“I got you,” Milania told her youngest sibling as she vowed to step in for Gabriella. 

Audriana also had some sweet parting words for her sister. 

“I was actually just thinking about this last night, you’re my motivation to do well in high school and you inspire me and I love you so much,” she told her big sister. 

“Thank you, my sweet angel,” Gabriella replied before blowing her a kiss. 

The Giudice family may be having a hard time saying goodbye, but Gabriella was already thinking about the adventure ahead. 

“I’m ready,” she said. “I’ve been looking forward to college.”
