Teresa Giudice, star of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, is very close to her brother, Joe Gorga. Since season 3 her sister-in-law, Melissa Gorga, has appeared alongside her on the RHONJ. The family has gone through ups and downs on the show but right now they are as bonded as ever. However; Teresa recently admitted she was “annoyed” with her baby brother Joey.
On October 10th the deportation ruling of her husband, Joe Giudice, being deported to Italy emerged all over the news. It turns out Teresa wasn’t the one to tell her daughter, Gia Giudice, it was her brother who did. Teresa told People, “My daughter [Gia] found out and then I had to tell my other two daughters. It was just, it was not a good day.”
Gia is a senior in high school, and was in class when she was informed by her uncle, about her father. Teresa said, “I was pretty annoyed at him at first. He apologized right away. He said, ‘I’m sorry.'” Gia called Teresa afterwards and then left school to come home. Teresa explained, “Gia said, ‘Mommy, what happened?’ And then I told her. And then she left school. She didn’t want to be at school anymore.” Teresa then had to inform her daughters Gabriella and Milania, but still hasn’t told her youngest, Audriana, who is 9 years old. Teresa stated, “She’s too young.”
Teresa explained, “The adults can handle anything. Adults can handle it because they’re big. That’s why we’re adults. We can handle it. But who would it affect the most? It’s the children. And that’s what’s sad about it, because the children are affected by it. It’s very sad, because they’re going through all this heartache, meanwhile it’s not even their fault. You know? They’re the ones that hurt the most.”
They are working on appealing the judge’s ruling. Teresa summed up, “I’m taking it day by day. Yeah, whatever we have to do. Whatever the attorneys tell me. Whatever they tell me that’s what I do. You know, we’re going to fight this.” She added that her daughters know that she’s being proactive. “They know we’re gonna fight it. They know mommy is doing everything she can,” she said.
On top of it all, Teresa and Joey made a trip to the hospital to visit their father who was being hospitalized as of the end of October. Their father, Giacinto Gorga, was in the hospital when Teresa had shared a photo of her boots resting on a hospital bed to her Instagram story. Joe posted a selfie of the two of them. He captioned it “family” and Teresa commented on the photo, “love you both very much.”

I hope their father is okay! Sending them all lots of love and prayers during these tough times. They are strong and will get through this all. I don’t blame Teresa for being annoyed about this, but I’m glad Joey did apologize to her. I’m excited to watch them in action soon on the new season!
Thoughts on Joe telling Teresa’s daughter first? Should Teresa tell Audriana? Are you looking forward to the new season? Sound off below!
