Teresa Giudice’s Daughter Gia Shows Strong Side, Says Dina Manzo

Teresa Giudice has been sharing her financial and legal struggles on The Real Housewives of New Jersey over the past two seasons, but Giudice has always wanted to shield her daughters from the media. Her oldest daughter, Gia Giudice, may still be young, but she is learning about some of the issues that are plaguing her parents.

On yesterday’s episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Gia admitted that she did know what was going on, and that she was there to protect her younger sisters from the harsh reality. All of her younger sisters may not have a clue that their parents are facing some serious charges.

According to a new Bravo report, Teresa Giudice has admitted she is surprised that her daughter can be so understanding and caring despite everything that is happening. Family friend Dina Manzo also picked up on how well Teresa’s daughter handled the situation.

“How much do you love Gia? She is such a beautiful kid inside and out. Like Teresa says, it’s moments like that when you know you’ve been a good mother. Kids like that just don’t happen, some of it is luck but MOST of it is good parenting,” Manzo reveals in her blog about the scene where Giudice’s daughter confronts her mother about their legal situation.

Giudice’s daughter may not realize that her parents could both be in jail in a few months, or that her father could face deportation, meaning he would not be allowed to live in the United States. But even then, Teresa would probably figure something out for the sake of her daughters.

“I know I’m not perfect, but when I look at my daughter I know I can’t be that bad to have raised such a good person in this crazy world we live in. I think after watching Lexi you will all agree with me too. Some of the kids you’ve seen on TV make you just cringe, don’t they?” Manzo adds.

Teresa Giudice’s future with the show is questionable, because the sentencing has yet to take place. It keeps getting rescheduled and it is currently set for October. According to The Inquisitr, Teresa and her husband don’t think that deportation is even an option, even though their lawyers have presented it as a possibility. Teresa is hoping she gets probation so she can stay at home with their four daughters.

What do you think of Teresa Giudice’s daughter Gia? Do you think Teresa should be more open with her, or should she keep things to herself to protect her children?
