It’s no secret nowadays that celebrities prefer to renew their vows. But leave it to the “Housewives” to really make it over-the-top. Teresa Giudice, from “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” renewed her vows with hubby Joe Giudice in a lavish ceremony on Long Island. The vow renewal took place at Oheka Castle; the same over-the-top venue where Kevin Jonas tied the knot a few years back, as well as disgraced NY congressman, Anthony Weiner.
The Giudices, who filed bankruptcy back in 2009 with over $11 million in debt, spared no expenses when it came to the fairy-tale-themed wedding, which included an odd surprise appearance by celebrity Kevin Jonas.
Although the family’s financial problems have recently become a main topic on the show, which didn’t seem to stop them from throwing a totally lavish party. The vow renewal included a horse-drawn carriage for the couple and a wedding dress from Pnina Tornai which is said to be 25,000 dollars.
Teresa and Joe also exchanged new rings. They are described as “elegant bands designed by Zaven Ghanimian” during their vow renewal. The couple also enjoyed a decadent five-tiered chocolate cake with vanilla butter cream, and an extravagant floral arrangement.
Despite complains that the vow renewal was done with the aim of saving their marriage, Teresa says it was actually for her four girls. “I wanted to show my girls that marriage is really important, as is being faithful to one another”.
Money troubles aside, $11 million in debt, who cares? What matters most is that Teresa puts on that $25,000 wedding gown and lovable juicy Joe puts on a hunky tuxedo and they walk down the aisle together once more, twelve years after their first wedding. With their little girls all dressed in pink and a huge tiered wedding cake awaiting the family, they renewed their vows telling the world how much they love each other. It seems they couldn’t wipe the big happy smile off of Joe’s face all day!
Best of luck to the happy couple, when we all get to watch it all unfold next season on the Real Housewives of New Jersey, we’ll all shed a tear just as we did for Vicki and Donn Gunvalson when they renewed their vows on the Real Housewives of Orange County.
The wedding will air as part of the fourth season of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey”. Maybe Bravo footed the bill for the ceremony?
