Gia Giudice, the eldest daughter of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” star Teresa Giudice and Joe Giudice, has landed a job in immigration law following her dad’s deportation.
“You’re never going to guess who I just hired. The next generation. Get ready to welcome Gia Giudice to our team!” virtual immigration attorney Kathleen Martinez wrote in a TikTok video Tuesday.
In the comments section, Martinez explained that Gia “wants to help immigrants more than people realize,” adding, “her heart is so big for that.”
The 22-year-old will start the gig after she finishes her senior year at college.
“I’m in my final year at Rutgers University, and after I graduate, I am pursuing my dream of going to law school,” she told BravoTV.com last week in a video interview.
Gia added that she hopes to become a “very successful lawyer” with a “lucrative clothing business on the side.”
As for Joe, Gia shared that her father is “doing really well” after being deported to his native Italy in October 2019.
“He’s working with a construction company right now in the Bahamas,” she said. “We’re very happy for him.”
Gia first announced that she wanted to pursue a career in immigration law after seeing what her parents had to go through during her dad’s deportation process.
“Their whole experience influenced me, honestly, for the better,” she said on “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen” in May 2021. “I just want to help families and be able to be there for families and help children, honestly, especially.”
Joe, 50, was kicked out of the United States after serving 41 months in prison for fraud. He also spent time in an ICE detention center before going to Italy.
Joe attempted to appeal the ruling but to no avail. Gia even launched a petition asking then-President Donald Trump to overturn her father’s deportation.
After Joe’s request to return to Italy was granted, his marriage to Teresa crumbled. They separated in December 2019 after 20 years of marriage and finalized their divorce the following September.
Teresa, who served 11 months in prison in 2015 for fraud, shares four daughters with Joe: Gia, Gabriella, 18, Milania, 16, and Audriana, 13.
The Bravolebrity, 50, has since remarried, tying the knot with Luis Ruelas in August 2022.
