"The Real Housewives of New Jersey" star Teresa Giudice has been working on her body since December in order to compete in a bodybuilding bikini contest — and the hard work paid off with a hard bod!

People magazine reports Giudice made a splash at the NPC South Jersey Bodybuilding Championships Saturday in Medford, New Jersey, where she posed in a teensy, metallic-purple bikini.

The 46-year-old bronzed bombshell, described by a source as being "in the best shape of her life," took third place out of seven.

The same source told People, "She lost a bunch of weight... She wanted a new challenge and pushed herself to the extreme."

Teresa's muscly brother Joe Gorga was there to cheer her on, as was her trainer, Tara Zito, who heaped praise on Giudice for her gutsy decision to tackle such a difficult undertaking.

Ever since her December 2015 release from prison — she served 11 months for fraud — Giudice has documented her fitness journey on social media, raving about yoga (she plans to become an instructor).
