Bravolebrities from every franchise have been publicly supporting Teresa Giudice in the news of her mother’s passing, and those closest to her have been expressing their support, and even sharing personal memories of Antonia.
Yesterday we told you that Robyn Levy and Dolores Catania shared the same beautiful photo of a white balloons floating into the sky, and now we know that Siggy Flicker was there for the services as well; she posted a very similar photo of the balloon release.
Siggy and Teresa have become especially close over the past few months, and she is sure to be a great source of support for Teresa moving forward; she has a positive attitude and is always looking to lift people up, especially those closest to her. She shared the photo below with the simple caption, “Today heaven welcomed another angel!”
Teresa’s makeup artist Priscilla has become a star in her own right. She is constantly doing makeup for out of town guests appearing on WWHL, and she’s extremely loyal to Teresa; she’s been with her since RHONJ season one and they are very close. She shared the picture below with a beautiful tribute to Antonia, AKA “Nonna.”
“mspriscillanyc: My deepest condolences to my dear friend, sister Teresa and family on their loss of a truly amazing woman and everyone’s ‘Nonna’.. she will truly be missed, the sound of her sweet voice and always saying ” ya know” after every sentence would always make me laugh The smell of her amazing cooking & her warmth, she was the best Nonna anyone could have asked for! This is one angel gone too soon! We will miss you Nonna and you will never be forgotten! #ripnonna May you Rest In Peace.”
Although she now lives in California, we can exclusively tell you that Dina Manzo did make it back to New Jersey to attend Antonia’s services, and her tribute was very personal. She shared cute memories, and even revealed that she saw her many times while Teresa was away. These two are as close as friends come, and it’s amazing to see that their relationship has survived reality TV; it’s safe to say they will be friends forever!
“dinamanzo: My heart bleeds for my girlfriend and her family…Teresa and I have been friends since we were 22yrs old. Over the years I’ve had the pleasure to get to know & love her beautiful mother. Such a warm yet strong woman. I had an immense respect for her as a woman, wife, mother and Grandmother. Often times in the height of the Real Housewives drama she would hug me extra tight goodbye and thank me for never turning on her daughter. She would tell me I was a “good girl” and much like my own parents I never wanted to disappoint her. I got to spend many special Sunday dinners with her while Teresa was away. She would always make sure I had extra salad or would jump up and boil more pasta because I didn’t eat meat. Just like a mama does. I’ll cherish those memories. ~May she rest easy…my girl now has the ultimate Angel watching over her in this most difficult time in her life.”
Our sources tell us that Teresa is so grateful for the love and support she is receiving, and she’s focused on being strong for her family right now. We love, love, love you Tre and are keeping you and the entire Giudice/Gorga family in our prayers.
