Teresa Giudice is encouraging her daughter Gia to follow her dreams — but at what cost?

Yesterday, the 13-year-old eagerly tweeted, “No school!” while sharing her excitement to hit the studio with her recently established girl group, 3KT.

But the tweet is raising some suspicions, as school was definitely in session, according to a site for the Giudice’s school district.

This comes shortly after it was reported the Real Housewives of New Jersey star shelled out $10,000 for a music video for the young girls — despite her husband, Joe, encouraging her not to because of the on-going costs of their legal situation.

“Teresa didn’t care and spent $10,000 for it,” an insider says. “The money Teresa paid only covered a fraction of the costs for the video. It was very expensive to shoot, and the other girls’ families also contributed.”


The source continues, “Now Joe is absolutely furious with Teresa for defying him, especially since they really need to be on a strict budget. They owe hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees, restitution, and of course millions in the bankruptcy case.”

Yikes! Well, at least Joe and Teresa have a back-up source of income while they're behind bars…
