This Sunday is the premiere of Bravo’s three-part Teresa Checks In special documenting the lives of the Giudice family during Teresa Giudice’s 15-month prison sentence for fraud. In an emotional new preview clip, Teresa’s daughter Gia Giudice can’t hold back the tears as she talks to her mom on the phone:
“You know I love you,” Teresa says before asking Gia, “Is your makeup on?” 14-year-old Gia Says yes, but then begins to choke up. Teresa senses that Gia is getting emotional. “Alright, well don’t — Gia?” Teresa asks when her daughter seems unable to speak.
The scene cuts away to Gia’s interview and she reveals, “My mom doesn’t want me or anyone to get emotional, so I try my best just to keep it all together.”
Always one to try to put a positive spin on things, especially when it comes to Gia, Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen says: “In happier news, Gia’s interview hair is — would make Teresa proud.”
As usual, Andy is correct.
And, in case you missed it, here is another Teresa Checks In clip focusing on Teresa’s husband Joe Giudice’s struggle to fill her shoes while she’s away. It also includes what appears to be the Gorga and Giudice families attempting to make peace:
Teresa Giudice is scheduled to be released on December 23. Soon after, Joe Giudice will begin his longer sentence.
Teresa Checks In premieres Sunday, October 11 at 8/7c on Bravo.
