A Gia Giudice music video was recently made, and behind the film’s finances was Gia’s mother, The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice.
Gia’s girl group, 3KT, which consist of 13-year-old Gia, 16-year-old Alexa Maetta and 14-year-old Cristianna Cardinale, launched a Kickstarter campaign weeks ago in hopes of funding the campaign. As reported by the Inquisitr, they shared a message with fans in an effort to drum up some buzz in regard to the Gia Giudice music video with 3KT. “3KT loves our fans! We want to give you an awesome original Christmas music video in time for the holiday! Join us!” they said.
“We are still so overwhelmed by the buzz and support over our first music video cover ‘Circus’ (originally by Britney Spears WHO WE ADORE!) …We were born to perform and entertain, and we are so lucky to be able to do this in such a big way. We want to empower and inspire other young performers to FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS AND NEVER GIVE UP!”
Unfortunately, not enough money was raised to make the Gia Giudice music video happen. In fact, according to a new report, only $926 out of $7,500 was collected, which resulted in 3KT’s manager canceling the shoot. Luckily, Gia’s mom came to the rescue.
“Teresa and the parents of the other two girls agreed to pay for the video to be made,” a source told Radar Online on December 10. “There was no way Teresa was going to have a disappointed Gia on her hands!”
“The video has been shot, and Teresa is extremely proud of how well Gia did,” the source added.
As the Inquisitr reported earlier today, Teresa doesn’t appear to be very aware of her financial state, which includes a $415,000 restitution bill for the charges of fraud, which were brought against her in July 13.
According to Hollywood Take, a source recently told Us Weekly, “Gia wants a Cartier bracelet and Louis Vuitton luggage” for Christmas, while Gabriella is hoping for “a trip to Disney World and the Apple watch.” The source also said Teresa “thinks backing down from a $1,200 pair of shoes to a $400 pair is roughing it. There’s a real disconnect.”
Despite Teresa and her husband Joe’s restitution debt and looming prison sentences, the mother of four has reportedly continued life as usual in an attempt to hide her issues from her daughters.
“She was vague, only telling them that Mommy and Daddy have to go away,” said a source. “She said they’ll be able to visit and talk on the phone, and that it’s a place where you can grow, become a better person and learn new things. The kids don’t fully understand.”
The Gia Giudice music video is expected to hit the web soon.
