Real Housewives Of New Jersey stars Teresa Giudice and Joe Gorga’s mother, Antonia Gorga, has died at the age of 66.
“Yes, Antonia Gorga passed away at the age of 66. Teresa has been in the hospital with her and is inconsolable now. Teresa is also in communication with [her husband] Joe and will be visiting as soon as she can. This is a very hard time for Teresa. She was very close with her mother,” a source stated.
Teresa, 44, last posted a sweet photo of herself with her mother in December with the caption, “Mommy I love you so much ❤️ #daughtersloveforhermom.”
The Real Housewives star has already been under plenty of stress with her husband, Joe Giudice, in prison, where he’s serving time for fraud. She completed her own prison stint in December 2015.
Her last post on social media – Instagram, posted on Wednesday, March 1, showed her work with the NephCure Kidney International Foundation.
“I have been supporting the Nephcure Kidney International Foundation since the day I met Matthew 8 years ago,” she captioned a photo of two children wearing matching NephCure shirts. “He suffers from a rare Kidney disease called FSGS. I am MARCHing to awareness with his sister Sydney Levine to find a cure! Please join us! #nephcure.”
