UPDATED (May 31, 10:44 A.M.):When Teresa Giudice spoke to BravoTV.com backstage at the The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 13 reunion, she shared an update on her cooking show launch, noting that “I’m launching a cooking YouTube channel,” Teresa said. “That’s coming out May 24, the day after my wedding special, which is airing on May 23.” 

She also revealed an update on her husband Luis “Louie” Ruelas' career, which you can read about here. 

The original story continues below.

Teresa Giudice has big news. And it’s only fitting that the passionate home cook announced said news in her glamorous black-and-gold kitchen. In an Instagram Story, The Real Housewives of New Jersey OG revealed that she has a cooking show in the works! And the show presumably will be filmed in the heart of Teresa’s New Jersey home. (Tour the house in the clip above.) 

“Soon I have a surprise for everyone,” Teresa announced, as she showed her daughter Milania Giudice standing in front of the stove. “Milania, tell them what I’m working on!” The New Jersey teen — who’s learning how to cook herself — hopped in to tease her mom’s latest venture. “A cooking show,” Milania trilled. “Mommy’s coming out with a YouTube channel!”

How to Watch

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

Teresa added: “I can’t wait for you guys to watch it, subscribe, and learn how to cook. It’s so simple and easy! Cook with love, and cook with me.” 

Teresa’s video revealed that a film crew was in her kitchen, though it wasn’t immediately clear whether the crew was there for Tre’s budding cooking show or another project. What was clear, however, was that Teresa makes a photo-worthy chicken parmigiana.

Her Stories also showed a close-up look at the Italian comfort classic, which was smothered in cheese and slathered in red sauce. Feast your eyes:

It’s possible that Milania made the red sauce on the chicken parm. In an Instagram Story video filmed the same day as Teresa’s big announcement, the New Jersey teen revealed that she had made sauce for the first time

In the April 12 post, Teresa showed her daughter standing over the stove as she tended to the family staple. “I made sauce for the first time!” the 17-year-old said. Teresa couldn’t contain her pride: “I taught her how to make sauce,” she said. 

Teresa’s other specialties include steak pizzaiola, which was a dish that her late father, “Nonno,” adored. Shortly after Nonno passed away in 2020, Teresa shared a photo of the cozy meal being prepared on her stovetop.

The dish features steak topped with fresh tomato sauce. There’s even a recipe for it in Teresa’s book Skinny Italian called “Papa’s Steak Pizzaiola.”  

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey on Bravo Tuesdays at 9/8c and the next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo app.
