Teresa Giudice has been through hell and back during her eight years on the Real Housewives of New Jersey.
However, Teresa admits that the upcoming eighth season was the hardest season for her.
“I have to say this was one of the hardest seasons for me because I lost my mom. It was just the beginning [of the season] so I had to work. So it kept my mind going. When you’re busy, it helps,” Teresa explained.
“Now that I’m done I’m even going through it again,” Teresa adds.“I miss her so much, and it’s just the hardest thing. Life’s good, and life sucks. I needed my mom still. She was too young.”
Teresa also shared that her mother battled pneumonia just before her death.
“It attacks your immune system. She ended up going to rehab after that and trying to gain strength because she was in bed for a while,” Teresa explains. “She was on a breathing tube. They trached her. But then she got better. They were trying to get her to walk again,” she recalled. “Then out of nowhere, my father got sick. He got pneumonia because he was visiting her every day.”
Even after everything, she’s been through Teresa admits losing her mom was the most difficult thing ever.
“If I could take anything, I wish this never happened to me. Like everything else that’s happened to me, I don’t even care. This is the hardest thing that I ever had to deal with in my life, because never… It’s like I still needed my mom. Like, we all need our mom, you know?”
Teresa also mentioned how terrible it was for Vicki Gunvalson to lose her mom two years ago during the filming of RHOC.
“I remember seeing Vicki going through that. Like, when she lost her mom, and ya know, I was just like, ‘Oh my God that must’ve been so hard for her to go through that,’” Teresa said. “And then, never in nine years did I ever, could imagine that I would be going through that.”
To wrap up Teresa urged fans to cherish their time with their parents.
“Don’t take your parents for granted,” Teresa urged. “Always spend time with them, because you never know what’s gonna happen. And I have no regrets with my mom because I was always with her, but still, it’s like I could’ve been hanging out with her now. And it’s like, and this is, like, when it had to happen.”
Sending lots of love to Teresa and her family!
