The Untold Truth Of Audriana Giudice

Audriana Giudice wasn't even born yet when in May 2009, her reality star mom, Teresa Giudice, embarked on her compelling journey as Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member. Audriana made her official debut in September 2009, and her birth got documented in Season 2 of RHONJ.

Since then, the baby of the family has grown up right before our very eyes into a beautiful young girl. Viewers have also watched the growing Bravolebrity deal with the downside of fame and her parents' legal troubles, despite her mother's attempts to shield her from scrutiny. "People have said things to her in school," Gia remarked during a 2019 RHONJ episode about Audriana dealing with Joe Giudice's prison sentence and deportation case, per People. Teresa added, "She started crying to me."

Although Audriana has had to confront her family's issues when she should have been enjoying her childhood, she has overcome these obstacles and is flourishing, thanks to the support of her loved ones. The reality star is especially cheered on by her three older sisters: Gia, Gabriella, and Milania Giudice.

So what is Audriana up to these days? Keep reading on to learn all about the baby of the Giudice clan!

Audriana Giudice struggled to remember life with her dad

Audriana Giudice has overcome more obstacles at her young age than some experience their whole lives. It all started when Teresa Giudice began her 15-month prison sentence (she ended up serving 11 months) in January 2015 for bankruptcy and mail fraud, which was followed up by Joe Giudice's 41-month prison term in March 2016, according to Us Weekly. Joe was deported back to his native country, Italy, upon his release in 2019, as he never became an American citizen.

As if that weren't tragic enough, during an episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey, Audriana came to the heartbreaking realization that she has very few memories of her father before he went to prison. While sifting through family photos, Audriana's oldest sister, Gia Giudice, asked her if the snaps helped jog her memory about happier times with their father. "Probably not," Gabriella Giudice commented as Audriana appeared to hold back tears, as seen in a clip shared via The Daily Dish.

Later in a talking head interview, Gia opened up about how difficult it was to realize Audriana doesn't remember any of the good times. "It's very hard watching Audriana not remember any of these moments because I have so many memories that I could think of with my father, and she has very few." We're not crying. You're crying.

The good news in all of this? Audriana has since enjoyed family visits in Italy with Joe, and now she has new memories to remember.

Audriana Giudice's passion is dance

Audriana Giudice is doing incredible lately, especially where it concerns her love for competitive dance. "She is obsessed with dance. It's like her passion," Teresa Giudice revealed in a Real Housewives of New Jersey clip. "All my daughters started dance at 2 1/2. But Audriana does competitive dance, and her school is pretty amazing. They all work really, really hard. They have their competitions all over the country."

Teresa continued, "When me and Auriana travel together, it is great quality time. And of course, when I take her, I take her to all of the best restaurants. Because I want her to know that she makes me a proud mommy. I just love to see how passionate she is about dance. I think it's really healthy for Audriana. We've gone through a lot as a family, and I rather her just focus on school, dance, being a kid. That's the most important thing." Aw.

Audriana also appears to appreciate fashion, an interest she probably inherited from her mama. Per Bravo's Style & Living, both Audriana and her sister, Milania Giudice, received the opportunity of a lifetime when, in February 2019, they got to walk at New York Fashion Week. And it should come as no surprise that both of the young ladies SLAYED the runway... all while their mother beamed from ear to ear in the audience.

Audriana, the world is your oyster — keep shining!

Audriana Giudice reached a big milestone

In June 2020, proud mama Teresa Giudice took to Instagram to sing her baby girl's praises yet again... this time for graduating the fifth grade. Although the graduation looked a little different due to COVID-19, Teresa was sure to make it a special one nonetheless, sharing a photo of her youngest daughter, Audriana Giudice, donning a bright red graduation cap. Her heartfelt caption read, "Congratulations to my baby who's not a baby at all anymore! I [am so] proud of you [and] how hard you work at everything! I know you hate all the videos and pictures I take but that's just because I don't want to miss a thing!! You are so absolutely perfect & I can't wait to see what you do!!! Love you to the moon & back."

Even papa bear Joe Giudice got in on the action from Italy when he dedicated a post of his own to the new grad. "Congratulations to my daughter! You light up our life with your smile! You've made us so proud over the years," Joe gushed.

Congrats to the middle-schooler!
