Well this is rather heartbreaking. Check out Gia’s new (heavily autotuned) song Just 13. She talks about people tweeting about her mother’s prison sentence like it’s a joke. It’s very haunting and sad, but totally worth a watch. Is that clip at the end on the day her mother left for the big house?
Gia turned 14 officially on January 8th. But the Sunday before Teresa left for prison, the family went to Mass together in the morning and later in the day Teresa threw a fiesta for Gia and all of her friends
Hours after the party after the girls were in bed, Teresa left in the dark of night for Danbury.
“Our plan was that we were going to leave her house at midnight to start our journey to Danbury. I got to her house at 10:30 p.m. and it was somber. The kids had already been put to bed. She was cleaning up the kitchen two minutes before we left for Connecticut. She was still running around, making sure the house was normal. It was all about her children and her family. That’s been her singular focus,” he said. “The main reason we left at the time we did, is she didn’t want her kids waking up for school and have a million people in front of their home waiting for Teresa to come out. Whatever emotions she needed to get out, she did it prior. She had her game face on. She was ready to go.”
This reminds me of that time that Gia sang a song about her mother and her Uncle Joe’s falling out. 🙁
