Last summer marked a big milestone for Teresa Giudice: She installed a pool in her backyard! The Real Housewives of New Jersey mama and her four daughters had long wanted the luxury amenity, and finally Teresa has the savings to afford one. “For the past three years, I’ve been paying off restitution,” Teresa explained in a RHONJ episode. “Now that I’m done, I do have extra money and the pool is something that my daughters always wanted and they’re going through a very hard time right now. It doesn’t take the pain away, but I want to fill up the void as much as I can because Joe’s not here.”
Who did Teresa turn to when hiring a pool builder? A former boyfriend, of course! Her old flame, Tony from Woodside Custom Pools (fun fact: He’s also Joe Gorga’s best friend since third grade!), gave her a stunning custom pool, complete with arching fountains and a luxe shallow section perfect for placing loungers in the water.
And as of this weekend, Teresa’s pool is officially open for the season! In a series of posts to her Instagram Stories, Teresa shared that she was working on her tan poolside, while her daughters skateboarded and ran around the gorgeous stone patio. Looks beautiful, Giudice girls!
