Well, that's a wrap on high school for Gia Giudice. Teresa Giudice's eldest daughter officially said goodbye to that stage in her life this week, the same week her little sister Gabriella graduated 8th grade. The Real Housewives of New Jersey teen attended her ceremony in a lovely white dress along with her cap and gown, and was already looking forward to her next chapter — college — by shouting out Rutgers University on her graduation garb.
Her big graduation comes just weeks after she attended prom with Dolores Catania's son, Frankie, so she's really marking those milestones off the list!
And while Gia's college pick means she won't be leaving the Garden State, Teresa has always made it clear she wants her daughter to spread her wings and soar. "I'm not trying to hold her back. I want her to go, and I want her to experience that," Teresa told The Daily Dish of Gia while she was deciding which college to attend last winter. "I think it's gonna be amazing."
By the way, Aunt Melissa Gorga is also celebrating Gia's big graduation. She Instagrammed a photo with Gia from her graduation day, writing, "And now this one is officially a high school graduate. Love you Gia."
She recently also showed love for her niece, writing, "So proud of this one! She’s all grown up [and] so beautiful."
And the photo caught the attention of The Real Housewives of New York City's Ramona Singer, who also sent her "Congrats" with some heart emojis in the comments section.
