Teresa Giudice shared behind-the-scenes footage from her promotional shoot with her dance partner Pasha Pashkov ahead of "Dancing With the Stars" Season 31.

The 50-year-old reality star took to Instagram Monday to upload a video showing her and the 36-year-old pro dancer posing for the show's promotional photos. The pair donned matching gold outfits for the shoot, and Giudice couldn't help but flash a big smile throughout the session.

The post received a flurry of positive messages from the "Real Housewives of New Jersey" star's followers as many expressed their excitement for her debut on the dance floor when "DWTS" debuts its new season on Sept. 19.

"So excited!!! You guys got my votes!! Can't wait to watch you guys kill it," one wrote.

"You're going to do amazing," another added.

"We are voting for you," a different user commented.

Meanwhile, a day after news broke of Teresa's casting for the new season of the reality dance competition, her ex-husband Joe Giudice expressed his support for her and even revealed that she had been eager to join the show for years.

The 50-year-old Bahamas-based businessman and former reality star uploaded a screenshot of Teresa's casting news on "Good Morning America" via his Instagram and asked his fans and followers to support the mother of his daughters.

"Congratulations to my ex. Don't forget to vote for Teresa. I know you have been trying to get on 'Dancing With the Stars' for quite some time. Go get it," Joe wrote.

Joe's post surprised many fans, who immediately left positive comments on his kind gesture toward his ex-wife, who tied the knot with Luis "Louie" Ruelas last month.

"You are an amazing supportive ex-husband. Great role model to your beautiful girls," wrote one fan.

"So NICE to see you wish her well!! Supporting her is a testament to what you two originally had, and how awesome you two are parenting together! Your girls should be proud!" added another.

Teresa and Joe are parents to four daughters — Gia, 21, Gabriella, 17, Milania, 16, and Audriana, 12.

During her appearance on "GMA" for the official "DWTS" casting announcement last week, Teresa revealed that she received some advice from her youngest daughter, who has been competing as a dancer for years.

"Mommy, don't be scared, have fun, feel your partner's energy ... and dance like it's your last time dancing," she quoted Audriana as saying.

The "RHONJ" star added that she loves watching her daughter dancing on stage and shining in front of everyone, so she's hoping she could do the same for her through her "DWTS" stint.
