‘Tis the season for young Catholic girls to make their First Communion so it’s no surprise that the daughters of The Real Housewives of New Jersey stars Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga had their special events on the same day!
Teresa’s daughter, Gabriella, and Melissa’s daughter, Antonia, both had parties held in their honor on May 11, dividing the newly reunited family. But there were no hard feelings, according to Teresa’s blog. “Of course we wish we were able to go to Antonia’s just like my brother and Melissa wished they could come to Gabriella’s, but we belong to different parishes and couldn’t control the dates. What can you do?”
Antonia had her party at The Brownstone and naurally, fellow Housewife Caroline Manzo — whose family owns the banquet hall — was in attendence. According to retweet from Melissa, Antonia’s elaborate gown was an Elena do Vale custom design.
Gabriella’s party was at restaurant that was decorated in blue, green and white, Teresa blogged. “I had face painters and balloon artists and tons of kids activities and Gabriella was able to be herself and run around.” (Click here for pix.)
As for the grandparents of the cousins, they “hussled to make it to both” parties. Teresa wrote, “I’m so glad they could. Grandparents are so important!”
