People came from all areas of Bergen and Passaic counties, filing into to meet reality TV star Teresa Guidice who made the special appearance Saturday to sign copies of her new Fabellini and meet and greet fans.
The line never seemed to get shorter as more and more people continued to line up anxiously awaiting the Real Housewives of New Jersey and Celebrity Apprentice star’s arrival.
Lucrezia Maurin of Wood-Ridge and her 11-year old daughter Gianna, one of the youngest fans there, were one of the first in line to meet Guidice, having arrived more than an hour before the star's scheduled appearance. The Maurins brought along a photo of Teresa Guidice which the star graciously signed for them.
Guidice and her husband Joe spent a few minutes with each fan, posing for photos, signing autographs and chatting about the show, her new drink, and upcoming new cookbook.
Fans were also able to taste Teresa’s new Fabellini drink, which according to the star’s website, is a proprietary mix of “gold medal champagne and natural peach puree.”
While many people traveled from nearby areas like Hackensack, Maywood, River Edge and Clifton, some came right down the hill from Hasbrouck Heights like Lorraine Llauget who brought a photo of the star for her to sign and Joanne and Lauren Focarino and their daughters Alyssa and Gianna who all posed with the star.
Managers and staff of Heights Beer & Wine Emporium were happy to welcome Teresa into their store and their many fans. The store photographed each fan who came to meet Teresa and will make copies of the photos available to them.
