On Tuesday, Teresa, 50, responded by reposting the clip from Live with Kelly and Ryan and sharing her thoughts.

Luckily for The Real Housewives of New Jersey star, she found imitation to be the sincerest form of flattery.

“I’m so honored that Live with Kelly and Ryan would pick me as one of the looks for Halloween!” she shared.

Kelly, 52, had bought in the assistance of Say Yes To The Dress star Randy Fenoli for her New Jersey transformation.

The anchor, who herself is a NJ native, was fitted into a replica of the white mermaid dress that Teresa wore for her elaborate ceremony.

Kelly even copied Teresa’s famously huge wedding hairdo which cost the reality star $10k.

As Randy revealed Kelly’s over-the-top look, she screamed in delight.

“I love it!” Teresa said of the spoof.

Her eldest daughter Gia, 21, then replied to the clip as it was posted on TikTok, writing in the comments: “So funny.”


Teresa’s wedding was filmed for an upcoming TV special and is already a legendary event for Bravo fanatics.

Her huge hairstyle attracted particular attention from fans at the time, who were divided over the supersized look.

Speaking on Andy Cohen’s SiriusXM show Radio Andy, Teresa’s hairstylist Lucia Casazza told listeners that the wedding hair alone cost $10,000, involved 1,500 bobby pins, and took two hours to undo afterwards.

“Teresa said, ‘My hair has to be over the top,’” recalled Lucia, who was one of the 220 guests at the ceremony in New Jersey.

The look was built around a $7,000 hairpiece that Teresa found in New York City while shopping with Gia.

The styling itself cost another $2,500 and involved seven bundles of Keratin fusion extensions, a whole pack of clips, and three pieces of mesh stitched together to add extra volume.


At Bravocon 2022 in October, fans got their first glimpse at the footage of the event.

The preview even showed Teresa and Luis’ first kiss as a married couple.
