We haven’t paid much attention to Teresa Giudice from Real Housewives of New Jersey lately. She’s been doing stuff I just made a conscious decision to ignore her and her estranged husband, Joe. Teresa and Joe have four daughters, Audriana, 11, Milania, 15, Gabriella, 15, and Gia, 19. Notice a pattern in those names? At least they’re decent names. The older girls have been getting more attention on social media and Gia recently Instagrammed that she got a nose job. She posted the photo above with this caption:
yes I got a nose job. yes I’m swollen. thank you so much @drtobiasnyc I’m absolutely in love with it😍 I am an adult now, this has been an insecurity of mine for a while and I’ve never been happier and so comfortable in my own skin!!
So did Gia get her nose job comped in exchange for that mention? Dr. Tobias is a specialist in rhinoplasty in New York and his Instagram has lots of photos of young people. That’s a kind of plastic surgery I think is ok to have young, unlike other procedures teen women get like breast or lip augmentation. A lot of people are dissatisfied with their noses and that’s a procedure that they should be able to get at a younger age if they want. I’m not going to shade her for that, and she explained it well.
If that’s the after picture, though, what the hell are they doing at a party where people aren’t socially distanced?! I do think it’s the after picture because her nose looks slightly different in early photos on her timeline. It’s just like these idiots to go to a party where people aren’t distancing and aren’t wearing masks.
Here’s a photo from June and the one below is from May, 2019. She looked cuter with dark hair. I hope she doesn’t go the Brielle Biermann route and I’ll leave it at that.
She’s a pretty girl and there was nothing wrong with her nose before. When I was in school back in the 70’s, a lot of Jersey girls got nose jobs at 15 or 16. It was a thing.
In Croatia, we have a saying: “Moj nos, moj ponos” which means – My nose, my pride.
I have a prominent nose, but it’s my nose! Oh, well, to each his/her own.
If she wasn’t happy with it and wanted to change it, I don’t see why she shouldn’t. Reminds me a bit of Naomie from Southern Charm. She got a nose job for the same reason, they look a bit similar actually. If a person is not happy with a physical attribute and they want to change it, then live and let live.
The mask less partying though? That’s a big old nope from me. The real housewives of NJ are filming again and Melissa (Teresa’s SIL) hosted a party at her jersey shore home. No social distancing or masks.
If that’s what she wanted, more power to her. I think saying feeling comfortable in her own skin was weird though. Like yes, the skin is still hers, but the nose isn’t?? It just felt a little weird to me because feeling good in your own skin is about feeling comfortable with who you are.
Come on you haven’t learned by now? Rich celebs don’t have to quarantine or socially distance. Nothing has changed for them. Actually, honestly, I’m disgusted by the people in my neighborhood…some of which are healthcare workers. They’ve been having parties this whole f*cking time !
It sucks we live in a world where she felt she needed one also as a mom I would feel I failed at instilling some self confidence.
I’ve seen so many acquaintances on social media partying on boats with no masks, at backyard parties, etc. I feel like I’m living in a different reality. I take comfort in the fact that I know many people feel the same as I do and I’m confident in my choices to protect my health and my loved ones, but seriously, it sometimes feels like everyone else has gone back to normal.
I hear you ! It bothers me so much how many people are acting like the virus just disappeared. They have zero fear. I just don’t understand it.
My best friend from high school got a nose job as soon as she turned 18. She paid for it herself by working after school at Wendy’s. It turned out really good and suited her face. It gave her confidence so I was very supportive and happy for her.
Plastic surgery in moderation should be normalised as long as you are upfront about it and don’t abuse it. If it helps your confidence go ahead. I can’t stand celebs who are not upfront about it AND try to shill something OR make young girls think that is the ‘natural’ standard they should aspire towards.
A mask would have been the perfect way to cover up the swollen done nose…
Oooooo, I thought you were going somewhere else with your comment, yinyang… 🤭 *Bad girl, Anna. Bad girl!*
They’ve got their pose game down pat, I’ll give them that.
I’m so sad that we live in a world where this is considered normal/necessary/acceptable. I suggest paying to try and tackle some of the inner insecurities before starting on outward things. Then at least you’re sure before you go under the knife even if that then perpetuates the issue for other young people.
I agree. Plus choosing to get plastic surgery during this pandemic, when people are actually sick and dying, it’s a different kind of sickness. Of the mind.
I also agree. When I was (much) younger, I always thought I had a too-big nose. I’ve no idea where the horrible feeling came from; no one had ever made any negative comments about it and I didn’t obsess about it, but it was always in the back of my mind to get it “fixed” one day. Fast-forward to my 37th birthday (I still hadn’t done anything about the nose situation, because after all, I put the pro in procrastinate), and my sisters and I were looking at some old photos. I pointed to a young woman holding a baby. She was side-on, so I couldn’t recognise her, but she was wearing a gorgeous dress. I asked who it was. My sisters looked at each other and one said, “It’s you, you idiot, holding your godson at his christening.” To be fair, I the one with the bad eyesight. I studied the nose for a bit, and said, “Oh, wow, I have a rather nice nose after all, don’t I?” I never thought about it again. My nose is perfect. For me.
When I grew up plastic surgery wasn’t necessarily something people looked down upon but it was considered to be for actual disfigurements. Some people really have huge noses. This is not it tho. She needs to learn how to have more self-esteem. Otherwise she’ll end up looking like her mom in a few years.
Dina Manzo also got a nose job. She was striking before with her prominent nose. Now she just looks basic.
It’s a shame she felt the need to do that. She was quite beautiful before. Now her face looks a bit odd and disproportionate. Hopefully it will improve as the swelling goes down.
I agree, I don’t think it looks very good.
Eh, it’s her body, her money, her life. But, I thought your nose grows over the course of your lifetime, so what happens to a nose job over time?
Not my business however I loved her Italian look before.
A nose job can also correct long-standing health problems like a deviated septum or narrowed passages. I don’t know if this is the case with her…
I have a very prominent “moon face”, and have been teased for my chin my entire life. When it was just vanity, I decided I could not go through with the traumatic surgery of breaking and resetting the jaw, shaving the chin, and then wiring everything in place for months. Now that my TMJ is severe enough to cause near-daily migraines, I’m on the ledge about it.
If you are in pain it might be worth it. Not sure if you are describing the same thing, but I know someone who had this type of surgery due to a severe underbite, and they were happy with the outcome.
I had a septoplasty 11 years ago to fix a deviated septum. My coworkers asked if I was going to get a nose job at the same time. Um, ouch!
A deviated septum correction is not visible from the outside. The nose looks exactly the same after the procedure.
It looks great! Thats all I’ve got.
This will be the first of many procedures to come.
[*Just look at her mother.*]
I’m not surprised. Her mom doesn’t have any self-esteem so how could she have it. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.
