Down but not out!
The Real Housewives of New Jersey star revealed the news on Instagram along with a photo of Antonia on crutches. She explained that Antonia requires surgery to fix her torn ACL and will be out of commission for 6-8 months.
“My little athlete tore her ACL. She/we were so upset yesterday when we found out that she would have to be out of cheer & gymnastics for 6-8 months & needs surgery. She was practicing her full twist when this happened. Not an easy skill to do! But today, her spirits are high, and we are on the road to recovery. I’ve always pushed my kids to work hard, step out of their comfort zone, and be the best they can be; I will always raise athletes! Wish her luck @antoniagorgaa,” Melissa explained.
Some of Melissa’s fellow Real Housewives and RHONJ co-stars commented on her Instagram post and sent their well-wishes to Antonia.
“Awww, Antonia, poor kid,” Dolores Catania commented.
Tamra Judge, on the other hand, wrote, “Oh No! Feel better soon. Life of [an] athlete.”
“Oh, no!! Poor Antonia. Sending love and healing vibes,” Jackie Goldschneider commented.
Team AllAboutTRH is sending our prayers to Antonia! We hope she has a successful surgery and speedy recovery. We know she’ll be back tumbling and cheering in no time! Stay positive!
The Real Housewives of New Jersey will return to Bravo in early 2021.
