Teresa Giudice performed at the premiere of “Dancing With the Stars” where she showcased her newly acquired ballroom dancing skills.
Giudice came into the picture wearing an apron and stood in front of a blinded turkey sitting on a dining table. As part of the theatrics, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star turned the table — a nod to her Season 1 self — before teaming up with her pro partner Pasha Pashkov to bring the world her tango, We Found Love ‘ by Calvin to show Harris and Rihanna.
Giudice and Pashkov’s dance earned them five points across the board, giving them 20 out of a possible 40 points for the evening. The score was pretty average, leaving the two in midfield. However, after the live voting concluded, Guidice and Pashkov found themselves among the last two and at the mercy of the judges.
Carrie Ann Inaba, Derek Hough and Bruno Tonioli each decided to save Giudice and Pashkov, effectively sending Jason Lewis and Peta Murgatroyd home.
As Giudice looks ahead to week two, fans on social media are still reacting to week one.

Interestingly, some “Dancing With the Stars” viewers on social media said they felt Giudice’s score was too generous.
“Damn 5 5 5 5. I think the judges were generous. Michael Jackson called and said stop trying to steal his Thriller dance moves,” according to a Twitter user wrote.
However, many felt that Giudice appeared to be having fun and thought she did a great job – even if she didn’t get enough votes to keep her from being in the final two.
“This was better than I thought based on the dances we saw at RHONJ. Hopefully next week she won’t be so stiff. She seemed to be having fun,” one Redditor said in a thread about Giudice’s performance.
“She actually exceeded my expectations [sic]’ read another comment.
“It’s a decent performance of the first week. She might have some potential,” added a third Reddit user.
“She seemed nervous and stiff. next week she will be better! I can say she can be good,” echoed another.
Aside from many thinking Giudice did a good job at her very first ballroom dance, many also loved that she had support from her daughters, two of whom were in the audience, and another housewife who also performed the show live pursued.
Gia Giudice and Milania Giudice cheered for their mom, as did ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ star — and DWTS graduate — Kenya Moore.
“It’s all so damn cute. Kenya’s joy for her looks so real and so cute,” one Reddit user commented on a thread about Giudice’s night dance.
“The dance gene definitely runs in her family. Love to see her daughter in the crowd giving her all for her mom,” wrote another.
