See Teresa Giudice Declare She's "Not Fake" Back in Season 1 of RHONJ (VIDEO)

We're throwing it back to the moment we met the RHONJ cast member and her family for the very first time.

By Jocelyn Vena

Teresa Giudice has been letting Bravo fans into her life since Season 1 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey. And, what's been evident from the moment she stepped out on the scene is that Tre is going to keep it 100 no matter what is happening in her world.

How to Watch

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

Ahead of Season 14 of RHONJ premiering this May, we're taking a look back at the moment we officially met Teresa. Try not to get too nostalgic, OK?

Take a look back at Teresa Giudice in Season 1 of RHONJ

When fans were first introduced to Teresa back in Season 1 of RHONJ, which premiered in 2009, her life looked completely different than it does today. Teresa's Season 1 tagline was "People make fun of Jersey girls, but I think they're just jealous," and she was certainly living her dream.

She was still married to Joe Giudice and the former couple hadn't yet welcomed their youngest daughter, Audriana, yet (Teresa would give birth to Audriana in Season 2). "I'm not fake," she declared in the RHONJ Season 1 intro video. "I don't try to be someone I'm not."

As you can see in the throwback Season 1 video of Teresa above, she was doing it all her way in the Garden State raising Gia, Milania, and Gabriella, shopping, and building her "dream house" that fans would get to know over the course of many seasons. (Teresa would put the house on the market over a decade later in 2020 following the end of her marriage to Joe in 2019.)

Teresa Giudice watches her casting tape for RHONJ Season 1

When Teresa appeared alongside Andy Cohen on his his E! limited series, For Real: The Story of Reality TV, the pair took a trip down memory lane and watched back Teresa's 2008 RHONJ casting tape in which proclaims, "I always get what I want, which I love. Always, always, always, always." 

Joe Giudice also makes an appearance in the casting tape, sharing about his then wife, "I can't complain. She cooks. She spends a lot of money, but besides that she's alright."

The rest is, as they say, history.

Now that we've taken a look back, get ready to go inside Teresa's life today when Season 14 of RHONJ premieres this spring. Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 14 premiere May 5 at 8/7c on Bravo and stream next day on Peacock.
