This past Friday AllAboutTRH sadly confirmed that Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice’s mother Antonia Gorga passed away at 66 years old. Antonia Gorga has made many appearances on the Real Housewives and had an extreme close relationship with her daughter Teresa. When Teresa was away serving time Teresa’s mother Antonia and her father Giacinto helped Joe Giudice care for Teresa’s four children.
We revealed that Antonia Gorga had been in the hospital for a couple of months and ultimately passed of natural causes. Our sources tell us that Teresa is absolutely devastated by her mother’s passing saying, “Her mother was everything to her. They had an undeniably close relationship. Teresa has always tried to stay strong for the sake of her girls but with losing her best friend she is suffering as any daughter would be. It’s been especially hard for Teresa to witness her father break down knowing he has lost the love of his life.”
Teresa posted on her social media account late Saturday night thanking everyone for their support through this tragic time writing, “Thank you for the love and support during this extremely difficult time. My mother was a very cherished part of our family and she’ll be deeply missed. Each and every one of your messages of love & support are so appreciated. Give her eternal rest O Lord and may your light shine on her forever.”
Teresa’s daughters Gia and Milania also took to their personal Instagram page to pay tribute to their grandmother.
Antonia is survived by Teresa, Joe, their father Giacinto Gorga and seven grandchildren. Our thoughts and prayer continue to go out to the family through this difficult time.
