Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice recently showed off her muscles at a swimsuit contest in the Garden State. According to PageSixGiudice took third out of eight places at NPC South Jersey Bodybuilding Championships on Saturday. At 46 years old, Giudice looked stunning in a sparkling purple bikini that left little to the imagination, but we're not complaining. 

“She has been training since December five or six times per week,” a source told PageSix.“[She] has told friends she would consider competing in the future, but for now, no plans to do so,” the insider continued. "[She] wanted to challenge herself physically and is extremely happy with how she did, coming in third out of eight.”

Giudice spent 15 months in jail for mail, wire and bankruptcy fraud and has led a life focused on physical fitness since she was released. Her husband Joe Giudice is currently serving a 41-month sentence for the same crimes. The gorgeous bodybuilder and housewife aims to start her own yoga line as well, and her interested in the ancient Indian practice has led her to pursue a career as a yoga instructor.
