The children of the Real Housewives stars are all grown up! Gia Giudice, the daughter of Real Housewives stars Teresa and Joe Giudice, has just come back from the prom, and she was escorted by the son of yet another Real Housewives star. Who is Frankie Catania?

1. Frankie Catania is a well-rounded young man.

According to Hollywood Life, Frankie Catania isn’t just a spoiled brat son of a reality star — he’s out here making a difference in the world (or, at least, trying to).

He’s currently a sophomore at Connecticut’s Sacred Heart University, and he previously modeled for Calvin Klein clothing. An aspiring actor who had a bit part in the indie film, A World Away, Frankie Catania also attended the Michal Luggio school of acting in New York City to perfect his craft. Best of all, he’s very close with all his family members — which include his mother, Dolores; his father, Frankie Sr.; and his older sister, Gabriella — and is very into fitness. He sounds like quite the catch!

Frankie Catania is a sometime model who has appeared on several book covers! 

2. He’s friendly with the other Real Housewives stars, as well.

Frankie Catania isn’t just friendly with the Giudice family. According to Bravo TV, he’s also friendly with Melissa Gorga and her family as well. In fact, they’re all so close that when Melissa put on a fashion show for her Envy clothing line, Frankie was happy to strut his stuff on the runway in support.


“Dolores' son, Frankie Catania, strutted his stuff down the runway at the event. The Real Housewives of New Jersey college student showed off his ripped abs and biceps while modeling a pair of swim trunks from the boutique's men's selection. As the brand put it, Frankie most definitely looked "ready to hit the beach" in these trendy shorts,” wrote the outlet.

3. Gia Giudice is quite the catch herself.

In a different report for Bravo TV, it was revealed that Gia Giudice, Frankie’s prom date, is quite the catch herself. Gia recently announced she’ll be attending Rutgers University, and is projected to graduate in 2023. She also previously mentioned that she was interested in studying law — and Rutgers is a great school for that! — thanks to her father’s legal troubles. She even organized a petition to help keep her father in the United States.
