If you were like us, when you saw those photos of Teresa Giudice's crazy-fit body while she took the stage in her first bodybuilding competition, you probably thought, "Holy smokes!" And now we're getting a little insight into what her hubby, Joe Giudice, thinks about his wife's fitness endeavor.
“I don’t think he wanted to get me on stage in a bathing suit. Then he recently said to me, ‘You know what, you should do it.’ He’s been so supportive; he’s so happy for me," The Real Housewives of New Jersey yoga fanatic told Us Weekly.
And Teresa did just that when she hit up the NPC South Jersey Championships in Medford, New Jersey earlier this month in a purple two-piece that left very little to the imagination. And all her hard work is paying off: she placed third in the Bikini: 40+ category in the competition.
Teresa takes the stage and makes her dreams come true.
As for Joe, well, he always knew Teresa would and could do whatever she put her mind — and muscles — to. “Joe said to me, ‘T, if you really wanted to do this, I wouldn’t have been able to stop you anyway. I never stopped you from doing anything,’” she added to Us Weekly.
