Gia Giudice’s “Season of Joy” video and song with her group 3KT is out and many are full of opinions on the new project. It has been widely assumed that Gia’s mom, Teresa Giudice and star of Real Housewives of New Jersey paid the cost of the video. However, it seems that Gia’s manager is claiming that’s not the case. What’s the scoop on the video?
3KT previously released a video for their own version of the Britney Spears song “Circus,” and now Alexa Maetta, Cristianna Cardinale and Gia Giudice’s “Season of Joy” has hit the web. Is this second outing faring any better in terms of viewer commentary compared to the group’s “Circus” video? It would seem not so much.
While the 3KT girls are fairly well-covered in this video compared to their first one, many who have checked out the new video say that they think the singing and dancing are bad, the make-up is too thick and the video is poorly done. On YouTube the video has nearly 250,000 views already, with the ratings almost equally split between “like” and “dislike.” Naturally the song is available via iTunes now as well.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, the 3KT girls had originally started a donation campaign to try to finance this second video. However, the fundraising didn’t go quite as they had planned. There was then a lot of buzz that Teresa Giudice herself ponied up the funds needed for this video, much as many believe happened with the group’s first video.
According to TMZ, however, Gia’s manager Xhist Entertainment says that neither Teresa or Joe wrote the check for this one. They maintain that Gia Giudice’s “Season of Joy” video with Alexa and Cristianna was paid for via the management company and private investors.
In addition, Xhist says that the videos were much less expensive to put together than had been previously reported, with the cost being between $5,000 to $8,000 a piece. Even at that price tag, many online are shaking their heads in disbelief over the supposed project investment and the final video quality. It also seems that not everybody believes that Teresa Giudice has actually held back on paying for their videos, despite the significant sums of money she owes in restitution for her legal cases.
Are the 3KT videos and songs as bad as everybody is making them out to be? Will the girls keep moving ahead with additional group projects despite the widespread criticism? If one sticks to the idea that no publicity is bad publicity, then it would seem that Gia Giudice’s “Season of Joy” may well be the next big hit and the girls will start working on more.
