After showcasing an image in which Audriana was seen in a blue bandeau top and matching skirt, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star’s parenting was labeled as “terrible” as fans wondered why a child of Audriana’s age was dressing like a woman in her 20s.
“Happy birthday to my beautiful, smart, kind, amazing daughter!” Teresa wrote in the caption of her September 14 post. “I can’t believe my last born is 14 … You impress me [every day]! Keep being your authentic self. I hope this year brings you nothing but joy and happiness. I love you to the moon and back.”
Following the sharing of the slideshow, which also featured Audriana’s older sisters, including Gia Giudice, 22, Gabriella Giudice, 19, and Milania Giudice, 17, many fans were taken aback by Audriana’s racy outfit.
“That is how she dresses for 14? Sad. She looks beautiful. She doesn’t need to look 25,” one person wrote.
“Wow 14?” another asked. “She looks like she’s 20 something.”
“I can’t believe she’s only just turning 14 when she’s been wearing all that make up on her face and walking around half dressed for the last 2 years at least … Why would anyone allow their babies to parade around like 25 year olds at 13???” someone else wondered.
Others simply told Teresa that Audriana “needs to dress like a 14 year old” and “it’s sad” that she looked twice her age.
“Looks like a 25 year old women. Isn’t she in middle school?” a fan questioned.
“As always, dressed inappropriately,” another complained. Someone else commented, “Not appropriate for a child!”
“Allow her to be 14 she’s a baby look at those photos that is not 14 that’s a woman past 18 dressing like that…. [Be] a mom,” blasted a different Instagram user.
Teresa isn’t the only Real Housewives star dealing with backlash over the way her child dresses. As fans may have seen, Kyle Richards of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has also been shaded for allowing her 15-year-old daughter, Portia Umansky, to sport mature looks.
“Oh, people love it when my teenage daughter wears a crop top; they love to comment about it,” Kyle admitted during a recent appearance on Amazon Live. “I’m just not that uptight about that … I don’t think that is a big deal. I mean, we wear bathing suits.”
“There have been many times where it’s like we’re pushing it, I’m not pleased. But sometimes as a parent, you have to pick and choose your arguments,” she added.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey season 14 is expected to premiere on Bravo sometime in early 2024.
