Teresa spoke to Bravo’s The Daily Dish at the NBCUniversal Upfront last month and revealed what Gabriella’s planned to do after she graduates high school, next year.
“We have to start looking at colleges,” Teresa shared.
“At first, she wanted to be a CIA agent, and then she saw how much money they made, and now she’s changed her mind,” Teresa continued. “So, like, I can’t wait to see what college she goes to, because she is my smartest kid. I can’t wait to start looking at colleges with her and see where she ends up.”
The Bravo star added that Gabriella’s high GPA will likely open lots of opportunities. She revealed that the teen had been recognized by the National Honor Society because she’s “so smart.”
Gabriella attends Montville Township High School. The National Honor Society offers “exclusive resources, programs, and services” in order for its members to prepare for their “college and career pursuits.”
Teresa shared that Gabriella received a letter informing her that she had been accepted into the organization.
The letter read—“The NHS Selection carefully considered your application. It was their determination that your application successfully met the criteria for scholarship, leadership, service, and character.”
“She does amazing at school. She’s so smart,” Teresa gushed. “[I] get letters from all the teachers all the time saying how amazing she is.”
Fans know that the four girls Teresa shares with her ex, Joe Giudice, have grown up in front of Bravo cameras. Her oldest, Gia, appeared on the most recent season of RHONJ, and even edged into “Housewives” drama when she defended her mother during a tense exchange with Margaret Josephs.
“She grew up on this season,” Teresa said. “And if she wants to have her mommy’s back, I raised her right then. She was very respectful, and listen, she wasn’t being disrespectful or anything.”
Margaret put Teresa on blast for allowing her 21-year-old daughter to participate in RHONJ drama, as the season unfolded.
Margaret took issue with Teresa praising Gia for interjecting herself into a cast spat in defense of her mom.
“Teresa could defend herself and none of Teresa’s friends are ever going to argue with her daughter,” she added.
The reality star clarified that she would “never” argue with Gia or any other “young woman” or “child” while filming the show.
“I was very upset that that happened, and I don’t think it belongs. I wish Teresa would have told her not to get involved, but I’m never going to argue with Gia,” Margaret said.
The college student took aim at Margaret during a filmed charity softball game, calling her out for not wearing items from her mother’s workout clothing line.
“She supports you guys with everything,” Gia told Margaret, who replied, “I support her all the time. Just not today.”
Gia recently celebrated her mother’s 50th birthday with a tribute on Instagram.
“Happy birthday to the queen herself. I love you so much, cheers to 50 years of being young!” she wrote.
