Since her first appearance on the Real Housewives of New Jersey, we’ve seen Teresa Giudice go through a lot. When we first met her, she was the mother of three kids (with one on the way!), had a strong relationship with her long-time husband, Joe Giudice, and was enjoying an extravagant life as a housewife in her New Jersey mansion.

But in 2013, she and her husband were indicted on charges of fraud. Teresa spent one year in jail while Joe began his 41-month sentence in March 2016. But despite their legal troubles and spending so much time away from their daughters, she's found success with her cookbooks and more recently, her new passion for bodybuilding.

Yes, that’s right! Glitz and glam Teresa has become a bodybuilder! And you don’t want to miss these new Teresa Giudice bodybuilding photos.

Teresa got into fitness when she was an inmate at Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, Connecticut. When she returned to Real Housewives, she became a big yogi and had toned her body. But this is next level fitness right here, and good for her!

Of her transformation, Teresa commented, “I love the way my arms and back look. All my clothes are big on me. My body drastically changed because of yoga but this was even more extreme. It debunks the myth that if you’re over 40, you can’t look good.”

She competed in her first competition on June 9th as a contestant in the NPC South Jersey Bodybuilding Championships earning third place! That’s pretty amazing for her first time. Her brother, Joe Gorga, and sister-in-law, Melissa Gorga, were at the event to support Teresa.

A source close to Teresa said that she was training for months to compete in a division that included women over 40. “She has been training for this bodybuilding competition since December. She wanted a new challenge and pushed herself to the extreme. Right now she is in the best shape of her life,” the source said. Her hard work has certainly paid off.

But what does her husband Joe think of all this? While he’s “away” (as she likes to call it), he’s been supportive of his wife. “I don’t think he wanted to get me on stage in a bathing suit. Then he recently said to me, ‘You know what, you should do it.’ He’s been so supportive, he’s so happy for me,” Teresa told Us Weekly.
