TERESA Giudice threw her daughter Gabriella a beautiful 17th birthday party complete with a cake and colorful balloons at their stunning $2million New Jersey mansion.
In March, the news broke that the Real Housewives of New Jersey star had found a buyer for the home that she shared with her ex-husband Joe Giudice, though the deal seems to have fallen through.
Teresa, 49, took to Instagram alongside her daughters to share photos and videos from Gabriella’s intimate 17th birthday party.
The reality star snapped a photo of a lavish balloon arrangement created by the “Balloon Boss” that filled their entire foyer.
The TV personality also documented an over-the-top birthday cake with swirly candles and red, black, and white icing as her teen smiled for the camera.
Teresa’s boyfriend Louie Ruelas also joined in on the celebration as he helped light candles and presented cupcakes to the birthday girl.
Later, the Bravo stars indulged in a spa night complete with silky pajamas and eye masks as they closed out the big day.
The RHONJ star’s eldest daughter Gia, 20, also paid tribute to her little sister, sharing photos from the event to her own story.
Alongside a snap of Gabriella and her cake, the social media influencer wrote: “Happy birthday sissy I love you.”
The siblings also took a photo side-by-side, which Gia captioned: “You deserve the world and more love you so much sis. Cheers to you!”
HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS
Teresa and her daughters held the birthday party at their $2million New Jersey mansion, which she previously shared with her husband Joe Giudice, 49.
The photos came as a bit of a surprise, as in March the news broke that the TV star had finally found a buyer for the property after it had been on and off the market for the past year without any offers.
In January of 2021, the mother of four was forced to cut down the price of the home from $2.5M to $2.25M as she hoped to attract a potential buyer.
Teresa even enlisted celebrity interior designer Jimmy DeLaurentis to help redecorate the home for sale.
An offer was allegedly made on March 25th, though a source told The Post at the time that it could take “months” for the deal to close.
The controversial ex-couple originally purchased the home in 2002 for $530,000.
CAUGHT RED HANDED
Teresa and Joe raised their four children in the house until 2014 when they were indicted and charged with bankruptcy fraud, conspiracy to commit mail fraud, wire fraud, and failing to pay their taxes.
They were forced to serve time in prison, and shortly after his sentence, Joe was deported to his native country of Italy.
The former businessman has missed out on many family milestones as he has been restricted from returning to the states.
In early October, Teresa and Joe’s daughter Audriana entered a dance competition where she showed off her lyrical talents.
However, her mother was the only one to cheer her on as her father has been living in the Bahamas since January.
Joe also missed out on both Gabriella and Audriana’s birthday parties, as well as other important family milestones.
