Inside Gia and Gabriella Giudice’s lavish joint graduation party
The Giudice girls have successfully completed their education. Teresa Giudice organized a grand graduation party for her daughters, Gia Giudice (22) and Gabriella Giudice (19), to celebrate the end of their college and high school journeys. The party took place at Teresa and her husband Luis Ruelas’ new home and featured extravagant decorations such as cascading balloon displays, a flower wall, and personalized three-tier cakes for each of the girls. To accommodate all the guests, large tents were set up in the backyard where everyone danced throughout the night. While Gabriella doesn’t have social media, Teresa and Gia shared photos from the lavish party on their respective Instagram pages on Sunday. The girls were surrounded by their friends and family as they celebrated their academic achievements.
Teresa, being a reality TV star, rented the tents for the event, which was held outside her spacious New Jersey residence. Gia, who graduated from Rutgers University in May, captioned a carousel of photos with the words, “Had a blast celebrating me and Gabriella’s Graduation 💗. Thank you everyone for coming, you all mean so much to us!! 💕” In the pictures, both graduates posed with their loved ones in front of a massive neon sign that read, “GRAD.” Gabriella looked stunning in a satin champagne mini-dress and platform heels, while Gia chose a cowl-neck gown in the same elegant hue. Each of them had their own personalized three-tier cake.
Gabriella, who will be attending the University of Michigan in the fall, wore a charming short champagne dress. Meanwhile, Gia opted for a floor-length gown in the same color. However, later in the evening, the eldest of the Giudice sisters appeared to have changed into a shorter white dress with a rose accent. Teresa showcased her slim figure in a floral pink and white dress with a low neckline. In her own social media post, the Bravolebrity expressed how proud she was of her daughters, whom she shares with her ex-husband Joe Giudice, for their significant accomplishment. The college graduate later switched into a shorter white dress.
The tents were adorned with stunning balloon backdrops for photo opportunities. Teresa shared photos of the glamorous party on her social media accounts on Sunday. She wrote, “Such a beautiful night celebrating my amazing daughters 💖 Congratulations Gia and Gabriella on graduating. You both continue to amaze me every day, and I am so excited to see all the great things you accomplish. I love you 😘.”
While Gabriella is preparing to attend the University of Michigan in the fall, Gia plans to make use of her criminal justice degree. As a recent college graduate, Gia is currently interning with a human relations law firm and has expressed her goal of reevaluating her father’s immigration status. Joe, who was deported to Italy in 2019 after serving time in prison for fraud and being in an ICE detention center for seven months, has been residing in the Bahamas for the past two years to be closer to his family. Gia, aspiring to become an immigration attorney, wants to bring her father closer to home, even if it’s just for temporary visitation.
“We have such a big family, and no matter what the situation is, gathering all of us to go visit him [is hard],” she explained. “Even though he did move to the Bahamas for us, for him to be closer, for the flight to be easier … like, plane tickets are still crazy expensive, especially when everybody has time off around the holidays and the airlines raise their prices.” Gia believes that her father is not a flight risk or a threat to society and therefore, his case should be reevaluated. Teresa and Joe finalized their divorce in 2020 after being married for 20 years. Apart from Gia and Gabriella, they also have two other daughters named Milania (17) and Audriana (13).
The Giudice girls are graduates.
Teresa Giudice threw daughters Gia Giudice, 22, and Gabriella Giudice, 19, a glitzy joint graduation party over the weekend to celebrate the end of their respective college and high school careers.
The party, which was thrown at Teresa and husband Luis Ruelas’ brand-new home, featured cascading balloon displays, a flower wall and a personalized three-tier cake for each “dorter.”
To accommodate all the guests, the “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star set up large tents in her backyard where they danced the night away.
Although Gabriella doesn’t have social media, her mother and sister shared photos from the lavish party to their respective Instagram pages Sunday.
“Had a blast celebrating me and Gabriella’s Graduation 💗,” Gia, who graduated from Rutgers University in May, captioned a carousel of photos. “Thank you everyone for coming, you all mean so much to us!! 💕”

Gabriella wore a satin, champagne mini-dress and platform heels, while Gia opted for cowl-neck gown in the same hue.
The eldest of the Giudice sisters seemingly swapped out the floor-length look for a shorter white dress with a rose accent later in the evening.
Meanwhile, Teresa showed off her slim frame in a floral, pink and white dress featuring a low neckline.
In her own post, the Bravolebrity expressed how “proud” she was of her daughters — whom she shares with ex-husband Joe Giudice — on their major accomplishment.
“Such a beautiful night celebrating my amazing daughters 💖 Congratulations Gia and Gabriella on graduating,” the 51-year-old wrote. “You both continue to amaze me every day and I am so excited to see all the great things you accomplish. I love you 😘.”

While Gabriella is set to attend the University of Michigan in the fall, Gia is planning to put her new criminal justice degree to good use.
The recent college grad, who is currently interning with a human relations law firm, told TheFantasyTimes in February that her career “goal” is to get her dad’s immigration status “reevaluated.”
Joe — who was deported to his native Italy in 2019 after spending three years in prison for fraud and another seven months in an ICE detention center — has been living in the Bahamas for the last two years to be closer to his family.
The aspiring immigration attorney is now hoping to get her dad even closer to home — even if it’s just for “temporary visitation.”
“We have such a big family, and no matter what the situation is, gathering all of us to go visit him [is hard],” she explained to TheFantasyTimes. “Even though he did move to Bahamas for us, for him to be closer, for the flight to be easier … like, plane tickets are still crazy expensive, and especially when everybody has off around the holidays [and] the airlines jump the prices up.”
The recent grad noted that her father was never “a flight risk” or “a threat to society” and therefore, his case should be “reevaluated.”
Teresa and Joe divorced in 2020 after 20 years of marriage. In addition to Gia and Gabriella, they also share daughters Milania, 17, and Audriana, 13.
