Teresa Giudice kicked off her highly anticipated first dance on Season 31 of Dancing with the Stars but she’s going to need a lot more practice to take home the top prize.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey star recently opened up about her DWTS experience and she confessed that it’s hard work.
During the premiere, the OG and her partner Pasha Pashkov danced the tango to Rihanna and Calvin Harris’ song, We Found Love. Teresa wore a plunging fuchsia pink dress with a high slit for her first dance while Pasha wore a fuchsia suit.
The mom-of-four also had a fun surprise for long-time RHONJ fans as she incorporated her iconic table flip from Season 1 into her routine.
That, however, was not enough to keep Teresa out of the bottom two as the judges scored her performance a 20 out of 40. Nonetheless, she was saved from elimination and will go on to dance again next week.
After taking to the dance floor on Monday night, Teresa opened up to her supporters in an Instagram Q&A.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star also got questions about her husband Luis Ruelas. The pair tied the knot in a lavish ceremony back in August and quickly jetted off on a whirlwind European honeymoon.

“It’s been amazing! He really is my best friend and he’s so good to my girls. I’m really happy…” said Teresa.
Teresa was also asked to give an update on the rocky relationship with her brother Joe Gorga, but she saved that response for her new podcast. She asked her followers to listen to the episode and share their feedback.
