Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice is said to be in deep mourning and “inconsolable” about the recent death of her mother.
Several media outlets have reported Antonia Gorga recently died at an area hospital. She was 66-years-old.
“Yes, Antonia Gorga passed away,” said a source. “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.”
The 44-year-old Giudice was known to be quite close with her mom, taking to social media as recently as in December to post a photo of the two that she captioned, “Mommy I love you so much ❤️ #daughtersloveforhermom.”
In the photo, Teresa proudly snuggles close to her mom, who likewise beams with pride while seated at a dining room table.
Recent times have been particularly stressful for the reality TV star, who is still living without her husband and raising the couple’s four young daughters all on her own as he serves out the remainder of his near four-year sentence after being convicted on fraud charges.
Prior to Joe starting his sentence, she served a 11-month prison stint of her own in Danbury, Connecticut on similar charges, being granted her release just before Christmas in 2015.
Giudice has yet to mention her mother’s passing on any of her social media platforms, seemingly trying to occupy herself with work she does with the various charitable organizations she contributes to.
