How to Watch

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

The Real Housewives of New Jersey mom took to Instagram on Friday (May 17) to share an inside look at her early birthday dinner with her husband, Luis “Louie” Ruelas; her oldest daughter, Gia Giudice; and Gia’s longtime boyfriend, Christian Carmichael.

The intimate get-together went down at Montclair's upscale restaurant Luigino’s Parmigiana, where Teresa and her loved ones enjoyed classic Italian dishes, like Roman-style pizza, fresh salads, a meat board, and various pastas.

The spread was as large as it was mouth-watering, but the family, thankfully, saved room for dessert. Later that night, Gia posted a photo of Teresa’s gorgeous multi-layered birthday cake from Palermo Bakery — a favorite among the RHONJ cast. The cake featured white frosting with a subtle leaf texture and was topped with white feathers, gold and white baubles, and long gold candles.

Birthday wishes pour in for Teresa Giudice

A day after the dinner, Gia returned to Instagram to share another sweet message for Teresa.

"Happy birthday to my beautiful, strong, amazing mom," she captioned the May 18 photo of her and Teresa standing before the birthday cake. "Thank you for being my rock and person! cheers to another year of life, happiness, and growth! you are seriously the most extraordinary person I know and I am so grateful to have you as my mom. I love you so so much! to many more years of life

Teresa’s youngest daughter, Audriana Giudice, also shared a sweet birthday message for her momma. The high school freshman posted a photo collage that included snaps of her, Teresa, and Gia, as well as her other sisters, Gabriella, and Milania Giudice

“Happy birthday to my biggest inspiration,” Audriana captioned the May 18 Instagram Story. “I don’t know what i would do without you by my side for everything I love you ma.”

RHONJ's Jackie Goldschneider also acknowledged Teresa's special day in a sweet Instagram post, proving just how far they've come in repairing their friendship.

"Happy birthday [Teresa Giudice]," Jackie captioned the carousel. "Anything I say will be disected or loved or cheered or hated, so I’ll just say happy birthday, I can’t wait to celebrate and looking forward to many more good times ahead. Wishing you the best birthday."

Teresa also received birthday wishes from RHONJ's Dolores Catania and Jennifer Fessler as well as The Real Housewives of Miami's Alexia Nepola.

The Giudice daughters celebrate major milestones

It’s been a week of celebrations for the Giudice family. Shortly after Mother’s Day, Gia took to Instagram to reveal her “first big girl purchase”: a 2024 Porsche Macan she bought all on her own.

A few days before she showed off her new car, Gia shared several peeks at Milania’s college acceptance “bed party.” Milania, who is headed to the University of Tampa this fall, was pictured inside her New Jersey bedroom, which had been completely decked out with UT-branded gear as well as red and black balloon arrangements.

“[T]hank you to everyone who made Milania’s bed party so special,” Gia wrote in a May 15 Instagram Story. 

Gia also showed off some UT-inspired sweet treats, such as an assortment of red and black gummy candies, red and white chocolate-covered pretzels, Hershey’s Kisses in red foil, and a gorgeous sprinkle cake with the UT logo. (And, yes, the cake was also created by Palermo Bakery.)

Milania spoke about her college journey during the March 13 episode of Namaste B$tches, where she revealed Teresa’s reaction to her UT selection.

“My mom is [saying,] ‘I’m so excited for you to go to Florida because I’m gonna visit you all the time,’” Milania recalled. “She’s like, ‘I want the warm weather. I’m so happy.’ She hates the cold.”
