Teresa Giudice recently underwent her second breast augmentation. On January 28, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star told her 1.8M Instagram followers why she chose to get her breasts redone 10 years after her first. Teresa, 47, went under the knife weeks after she and husband Joe Giudice announced they were splitting.
“I believe it’s important to always stand strong and feel like your best most confident self,” the reality star wrote on Instagram alongside a picture of her in a gray robe posing with her plastic surgeon. “10 years after my first breast augmentation I decided to have my breasts re-done. I am so thankful for Dr. Preminger. She was amazing, and so professional. I absolutely loved her and could not be happier with the results. I was very nervous to re-do my breasts, but I felt it was necessary for me to feel like my best self.”
Teresa added, “I encourage anyone who doesn’t feel their best self to work on feeling better. Even if it is the smallest thing every day. If it is something that requires cosmetic surgery to feel better I highly recommend Dr. Preminger, and could not be happier with the results.”
This procedure comes weeks after Teresa and Joe, 47, announced that they were breaking up after 20 years of marriage. On December 17, 2019 a source told People about the split. “They discussed their future when Teresa and the girls went to Italy in early November and they agreed that each had to move on,” the insider dished. “They are doing so amicably and very slowly.”
The insider added that the former couple is being realistic about the best way to move forward with Joe living in Italy. “Joe has been out on a few dates, Teresa has not. She has been too busy with the girls, with work obligations and taking care of her father," the source said. "She is happy for Joe. They have been very friendly with one another and are very supportive of each other’s happiness. They still love one another, but neither is interested in a long distance relationship.”
Since the Bravo stars went their own ways, it appears that they’ve been seeing other people. The Standing Strong author spent Christmas in 2019 with her ex-boyfriend Anthony Delorenzo, also known as “Tony the pool boy.”
Meanwhile, the Italian native was spotted in Mexico on January 25 partying with bikini-clad women. Joe was also seen grinding onto another woman and cozying up to them on the beach, according to reports.
Joe and Teresa got married in 1999. They were living apart for nearly four years before calling it quits. Joe was serving a prison sentence for mail, wire and bankruptcy fraud from March 2016 until last year when he was deported to Italy. The former couple shares four daughters — Gia, 18, Gabriella, 15, Milania, 14, and Audriana, 10.
