Teresa Giudice has been busy spending quality time with her family before her jail sentence begins in a week, but she’s had to share her 13-year old daughter Gia with the cameras, as she’s currently reportedly filming a reality show about her girl group, 3KT.
Gia and her group have been grabbing headlines, first for a racy video for their cover of Britney Spears’ Circus and then for a Kickstarter campaign that was rumored to have been sabotaged. The campaign was set up to raise funds to film a video for the group’s Christmas song, and gossip sites claimed that Teresa believed certain people in the reality world were keeping people from donating. The group released the video anyway and it became a modest hit on YouTube before they were asked to play an event at iPlay America.
“The 3KT show was great for them. Teresa, Joe and all their girls were there plus Joe’s brother and his family. It gave everyone something happy and fun to focus on. It lifted their spirits. Milania already wants to follow in her sister’s footsteps and keeps asking when she can join a girl group,” a source told E! News.
While it’s not clear when the reality show focusing on 3KT will air, a source says it will be mostly about the girls and their rise to fame, although their families will appear from time to time.
“It will be all about her group, 3KT. They’ve been filming already for two months. So far, the footage is really fun. Once the pilot is completed, they’ll start shopping it to the networks. All the girls’ families are in it here and there. But it’s not a show about the grownups; it’s all about the girls. Everyone’s very excited about it,” the source said.
Teresa Giudice will begin her jail sentence for fraud on January 5; her husband, Joe, will begin his sentence when hers is completed so that one parent will always be with their four daughters. The family recently took one last vacation before Giudice surrenders, heading to the Crystal Springs Resort and Spa for a ski trip.
“I’m sure she’s very stressed, but she honestly doesn’t show it. She’s trying to put on a happy face,” a friend said.
