Love her or hate her, you at least have to admit that Real Housewives Of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice is pretty interesting. There is just something about the reality star that makes her so entertaining to watch. Of course, being a part of the Real Housewives franchise has definitely made her life pretty intriguing to both the loyal viewers and the haters, but what was Teresa like before she was on reality television? And what did Teresa look like before she acquired her reality star glam squad of stylists and makeup artists? Was she a totally glamorous diva? Was she sporting a more down-to-earth look? Did she ever go all out with the Jersey girl hairstyles?
Sadly, we will not see any new Real Housewives of New Jersey episodes for a while, so we might as well dive into the past to see a different side of Teresa Giudice. So you know what that means: a lot of social media snooping. And I really did go way back into the archives of Teresa's many #TBT pictures. Check out these great photos of the 43-year-old mother of four before she joined the cast of Real Housewives of New Jersey.
Middle School Angst
Teresa posted this throwback pic from when she was in 8th grade. She looks less than thrilled to be sitting at a school desk. This is a far cry from the smiling and fun-loving Teresa that we always saw on Real Housewives of New Jersey.
Baby Teresa & Joe Gorga
Before she became Teresa Giudice, she was Teresa Gorga and the only Joe in her life was her little brother Joe Gorga. These two look precious in this baby photo and you can clearly see that their children are their doppelgängers. Those Gorga genes are strong!
She was living out that Jersey girl stereotype when she used to sport this big hair and nameplate necklace. She made it work though, right?
When I first saw this photo, I swore it was Teresa's daughter Gia. It's crazy how much the two look alike.
Teresa & Joe
I'm not sure when this photo was taken, but Teresa and her husband Joe look so young here! I'm not really a huge fan of couples wearing matching outfits, but they seem into it, so I support it.
Teresa, Kathy, & Her Mom
Long before their documented feud on RHONJ, the reality star looked happy in this photo with her cousin and former cast mate Kathy Wakile. Teresa's mom seems to be enjoying the family bonding, as well!
Teresa looked like a New Jersey princess rocking her tiara on her wedding day. She and Joe both look so young and check out Teresa's hair. There is just so much of it. So Jersey fabulous.
Young Teresa & Joe Giudice
Teresa and Joe look so sweet in this throwback photo. To be honest, she doesn't look much different these days. The girl really doesn't age.
Teresa With Her Baby
Teresa was a really big proponent of big hair. She looked beautiful with her husband Joe and I assume the baby pictured is little Gia. Either way, Teresa looks good and the baby is adorable.
Teresa & Joe Looking Like They're At Prom
So young and in love!
Teresa As A Bride
This black and white photo of her on her wedding day is absolutely stunning. She looks very glamorous and happy here.
It's nice to see these photos of Teresa Giudice keeping it real back in the day. The reality show cameras and full hair and makeup are nice, but they are not what made her who she is today. Plus, it's always fun to look at old photos and laugh at old style trends.
