AllAboutTRH Exclusive: Teresa Giudice’s Mother Antonia Gorga Passes Away At 66

It is with a heavy heart and extreme sadness that AllAboutTRH confirms Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice’s mother Antonia Gorga has passed away at 66 years old. Antonia made several appearances through the years on the Real Housewives of New Jersey and was known for having an extremely close relationship with her daughter Teresa.

Antonia has been in the hospital since mid- December with children Teresa and Joe by her side every step of the way. The siblings have been laying low when it comes to gatherings as they have been spending majority of their time with their mother at the hospital.

This past October Antonia was in good spirits celebrating her birthday with the Giudice’s. Teresa and her oldest daughter Gia posted about the celebration on their Instagram page.

  • rhfan

    @AARTH is it possible to please remove the Antoinette comments and the replies to them? This thread should be about paying respect and condolences, not giving attn to awful people. Thanks!

    • Shipp

      @AARTH I agree with Rhfan. This is not the time or place to hate. Sad.

      • Shipp

        To add, in agreement with Luvs (below) this person should be banned from your site.

  • Valena

    Oh no! That’s so sad to hear. Prayers to the family.

  • mags

    I feel for Tre……she had such a good relationship with her mother, her mother in turn did everything for her and her kiddies.
    she will be going through a terrible time, so please be kind to her.

  • SaltySulk

    That’s so sad and such a shock. A clearly lovely mother, grandmother and wife taken too soon. Condolences to Mrs Gorga’s family. May she rest in peace.

  • I’m a bit disappointed that the article did not acknowledge Joe Gorga and his family as much as it did Teresa and hers. A son’s loss for his mother is just as heartbreaking as a daughters. Would have been nice if both children & their families were acknowledged evenly on the loss of THEIR mother and grandmother.

  • Antoinette

    Teresa will probably film her reaction to this much as she filmed her girls crying while talking to her in prison or seeing their dad drive away to go to the slammer. Anything for a free spray tan. Her poor mother was probably exhausted from raising Teresa’s bratty kids while she hustled for money to get her next pair of Valentinos. Namaste

    • samael

      coward

      • Shipp

        Yes Sammy, that’s what cowards do. Hide behind a keyboard to vent hate. It’s terrible and disturbing, when one is filled with so much hate.

      • Antoinette

        lol. I hope they use the Gucci plates

        • samael

          of course they will and they will use them whenever they want..having fun licking Giudice butt?

    • Glimmer88

      Hope that saying something really ugly about the death of Teresa’s mother made you feel better. What a shitty post.

      • Theresa

        Good answer. I was hoping no one would get ugly at this time of sorrow……
        so much for hope !

    • Kitty Foyle

      Karma is always a real bitch. Wonder if the day you die, people will leave unattractive & callous comments about your relatives, if you even have any that claim you.

      • Antoinette

        LOL. I’m not on a reality show. BTW, you aren’t either. These people are not your family. Get a life Trehugger

    • Valena

      Antoinette, you’re a heartless b****.

    • wowjustwow

      A – you are a truly a disturbed person and a real fuc*er whose comments deserve no reply, but sometimes ignoring you than telling you hurts one’s soul (mine) for letting you have a pass. You are a totally disgusting person and have no redeeming qualities.
      My heart breaks for all of Teresa’s family and Juicy, who cannot be there in another of her darkest times – God be with them all!

  • Sheba

    My heart breaks for her! I’m glad she is home now as her father, daughters and Joey & Melissa will heal her. I’m happy they have a strong faith to have hope for the future. Prayers for each one if them

  • Gerseygal

    Beyond sad…The Greatest Love of all, is your Mother’s Love……Rest In Peace, Mrs. Gorga…Many Prayers to Teresa and Family….

  • JUST ME 5739

    OH I AM SO SORRY TO HEAR THIS, TERESA AND THE GIRLS ARE VERY CLOSE TO MRS GORGA…MY HEART HURTS, TERESA DOESN’T EVEN HAVE JOE TO LEAN ON NOW, TERESA NEEDS HER HUSBANDS COMFORT.

    • Antoinette

      Joe is probably “comforting” another male inmate in …….jail right now.

      • luvs2ride

        And you’re “comforting” yourself as you imagine it. Like you do every night since you found out he was going to jail.

        You posted about it for months. Obsessed much, sicko?

      • Maru the Cat

        Could you use some self reflection?

        http://www.livescience.com/19563-homophobia-hidden-homosexuals.html

        “Homophobes should consider a little self-reflection, suggests a new study finding those individuals who are most hostile toward gays and hold strong anti-gay views may themselves have same-sex desires, albeit undercover ones.”

        • Shipp

          Thank you Maru.

        • Antoinette

          Who’s hostile? Lol. Joe is probably loving it. You make it sound like its bad. He was married to an ape.

          • L.J

            Ray Charles could see you’re a hostile bitter and just miserable person. You must live a very pathetic existence and a poor excuse of a person if you would spout this kind of crap in a situation like this. SHAME ON YOU Antionette. I can’t help but feel bad for you because it’s so obvious someone must have done irreparable damage to you that has made you such a ugly and hateful creep. That or you were just born a rotten sociopath and there was no help for you.

  • FUCHESS

    My heart is so sad for her and the family. Be strong and basketball in the love of each other.

    • FUCHESS

      bask not basketball…duh

  • donna

    Sorry to hear about her MoM’s passing!

  • jlf

    This is the worst news possible for Teresa and her girls. My prayers and condolences go out to the entire family

  • Ice

    Wow thisis going to be a huge loss to Theresa, especially without Joe. Sending blessings to her and her family

  • Mel2244

    Very sorry for your loss??

  • Awwwww, sooooo sorry Teresa and entire Guidice family for your loss.
    I know you are crushed at the moment but this too shall pass….my LOVE to you all

    • Surprisingly, I thought Grand Papa Guiseppe might leave first. So sad.

      • donna

        So did I

      • JUST ME 5739

        OH I FORGOT HOW BAD MR GORGA IS…SUCH A STRAIN ON HIS HEART. I PRAY HE HAS THE STRENGTH TO GET THROUGH THIS VERY DIFFICULT TIME.

  • Antoinette

    This family is such a wreck. Teresa and her fellow felon husband put their parents through hell. I’m sure this hastened her death. She and her silly purses and gaudy house crushed this family by putting them in debt and ultimately in the slammer. Hope it was worth it.

    • You poor sad creature…. even now

    • el la

      your a monster Antoinette.

    • jlf

      Does ice flow through your vains?

      • Gee, that is really harsh. You must be a really mean and nasty woman. How could you even say that??

        • luvs2ride

          Who knows if this beast is a woman? Can’t say I’m even surprised at the shit he/she/it posted.

          This asshole should be BANNED.

          • Michers

            That’s no woman Luvs

    • donna

      I don’t like Teresa either but, could you just for today given her a break?

    • Marcy

      @Antoinette Question by any chance are you related to Richie Wakile? Word for word sounds like something that would come out of his mouth and here I thought he was the only sick person to blog such a abdominal statement besides Jim Marchese…

      • Queen Teresa

        Wow Marcy , my thoughts were ugly asslee or the drunk Jac but you are on track The Wakilie’s are the trash and spawn from the devil himself, ugly is as ugly does.

      • Antoinette

        Yes, everybody who doesn’t like Teresa is related to the Wakile’s.

        • samael

          coward

        • Michers

          I was thinking more Charles Manson .

      • Theresa

        Perfect !!

      • Kitty Foyle

        Or more like “Granny” Granatel. Old saggy butt-crack “granny” Kim G. with more face lifts than Jacqueline & still ugly to boot.

    • AllGoodStuff

      You are a bad person.. know that! Karma will visit you.

    • Anne0

      Wow. I’m sure your family is perfect. But to kick someone when they are truly at their lowest makes you a judgmental douche.

    • Hopeful

      You know you’re a POS right ?

      • Antoinette

        Um. no. I don’t commit mortgage fraud and put my kids and parents through hell for a handbag. and spray tan. :).

        • luvs2ride

          You don’t even know her cause of death, but go ahead & blame her daughter. Makes perfect sense.

          I’ll go ahead & repeat what I said to you in the Jacqueline thread. You are a sick fuck, River. A sick, twisted fuck.

        • Kitty Foyle

          Where’s your goat? Guess you beat it to death with this same old tired rhetoric that you’ve been spouting for months. “Ain’t you tired?” Should be & God bless. Please don’t kiss any young children as they might just expire from your touch.

          • Michers

            You know what they say Kitty , Satan never sleeps so sadly no ,IT ain’t tired. Just when you think you have seen it all , this one can even be so vile when someone passes 🙁

        • Michers

          Probably because you put your’s through worse, I’m sure ..

    • samael

      I just can’t say how sick this disrespect makes me. What kind of human kicks at a family that lost their cherished loved one? This is so sick.

    • Prekteacher

      Having just lost my dad last month this post offends me on so many levels! Only a truly monsterous lowlife hate filled sickoohant would post something like this about someone who has just suffered perhaps the most terrible loss a person can suffer! luckily this person for whom h
      You harbor such vile thought is far better, kinder, loving and successful than you will ever be! I feel sorry for you!

      • Michers

        Sorry for your loss PreK

    • Queen Teresa

      Hey Antoinette you fucking loser bitch see you next tuesday bitch, go fuck yourself you miserable bitch. You are a DISGUSTING EXCUSE for a human being. KARMA BITCH. I hope you and yours go straight to hell. GOT IT ASSLEE AND DRUNK JAC_ you suck.

      • Antoinette

        ??? Lol. Relax already or get a life. Her dad will be next as he is already sick and the stress his daughter has put him through will also do him in. Of course she can’t lean on her husband because he is in the slammer. Karma. 🙂

        • Glimmer88

          Is that what you would like someone to say to you concerning the death of your parents or husband or kids? Really?

        • Kitty Foyle

          Karma truly is a bitch. Wait for it you old troll. LOL……..honey, we all have a life, it’s you we are concerned about – LOL.

          • luvs2ride

            I’m not concerned, Kitty.
            Let karma “comfort” this heartless asshole when the time comes.

            • Shipp

              Kitty, Luvs, I’m not concerned for that one. There’s a Karma truck out there somewhere, with “Antoinette” name written on it.

              • Antoinette

                Lmao. Sorry but it already ran over Teresa, then backed up and ran her over again. I hope her shoes are ok though. 🙂

            • Michers

              The really twisted part is that she truly loves getting attention for her disturbed mindset .

        • AllGoodStuff

          It’s sad that you have so little compassion and act like such a monster towards people. You must have been kicked around pretty good in life to be filled with so much hate. I hope you will stop and have a good cry some day and apologize to the people you keep hurting. You must be a real pill to be around.

        • Michers

          You are so disgusting it should be outlawed ! Shame on you .
          Hell, party of one .

          • Antoinette

            “outlawed”. Lol.

    • dizzeelizzee

      Ashlee… get off your phone and go take care of your child

    • Kitty Foyle

      Another one of your worthless & heartless opinions. Go take a good long hard look in a mirror – if you have any that haven’t already cracked into a million pieces. Hard for you to swallow that there are people who despite their feelings have compassion towards another persons loss. Wonder what people would say if you died? That you were an ugly person inside and out without the benefit of family or friends.

    • Shipp

      Ugly Person…you can’t be sure of anything. God has a plan for all of us. It was God’s plan to take Mrs. Gorga home now, and no ones fault.

      Perhaps the plan for you is to get run over by a truck…tomorrow.

  • rhfan

    God bless the family. My sympathies. May MrsGorga rest in peace.
