On the week of her late father's birthday, Teresa Giudice got the ultimate gift. In the days leading up to September 8 — which would have been her dad's 77th birthday — The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member honored his memory with a bounty of Italian food. But after commissioning a charcuterie board decked with his image and hosting a pizza party with a cake for Nonno, the mother of four got a more indelible way to remember the beloved family patriarch.
In a recent Instagram share, Teresa posted a painting that captured her dad living life to its fullest. Apparently based on a photo of Nonno, the colorful artwork showed him smoking a cigar out in the sun. His shirt was unbuttoned, his skin was tanned, and his gold jewelry glinted. And though Nonno's eyes were ensconced in sunglasses, you can just feel that they were twinkling underneath.
Tagging a friend, Teresa wrote: "Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart I love this [painting] of my dad that you got for me. It’s one of the best gifts I’ve ever gotten I will never forget it."
