Young love is in the air in the Garden State!
When Gia Giudice and Frankie Catania attended prom together this year, many Real Housewives of New Jersey fans were hoping that a romance would blossom between them.
However, an RHONJ insider now tells AllAboutTRH EXCLUSIVELY that, that isn’t the case at all.
Our insider reveals that Frankie is happily courting another New Jersey beauty, who is surprisingly connected to Teresa Giudice‘s 18-year-old daughter.
A source reveals, “Frankie is chasing a girl named Ava Tortorici. The gorgeous brunette is currently Miss New Jersey Teen USA and is quite the stunner.”
The two were recently spotted together on a date at Top Golf. Ava also publicly wished Frankie a happy birthday just last week on her Instagram story.
It turns out Ava and Gia know each other from competing in pageants as little girls. Our insider says, “The two competed against each other when they were 6-years-old for Miss New Jersey Princess. Ava won the pageant and was crowned Queen.”
The source continued, “Bravo is trying to play up that Frankie is romantically involved with Gia, but that is the furthest thing from the truth.”
While this sounds juicy, we wanted to double-check the info, so we reached out to a go-to source that is very close to the RHONJ cast.
This RHONJ insider wouldn’t confirm or deny Frankie and Ava’s relationship but says they are “hanging out” and “taking things slow.”
Adding, “Gia is just friends with Frankie. They are like family.”
The source also confirmed that Gia and Ava “did compete together many years ago.”
And don’t worry about Gia because, according to our insider, there’s no bad blood between Ava and Gia.
Our source insists that Ava and Gia get along great. In fact, our source says that Ava thinks Gia is “amazing, sweet, and strong.”
