Teresa Giudice’s Father Continues To Battle Emphysema, Hospitalized


It seems there is more heartbreak for Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice. Teresa’s father, Giacinto Gorga, who she is very close with, is falling ill as he continues to battle emphysema. Star Magazine reports Giacinto was hospitalized on February 16th for complications from his lung disease.

“Teresa was right there by his side,” a friend of the Bravo star tells the magazine. “She’s very close to her father, and it was devastating to see him lying in a hospital bed, she’s already so stressed, and this just broke her heart. She’s going through an extremely difficult time.”

This is not the first time Mr. Gorga has been hospitalized. “The strain of Teresa’s legal struggles has taken a toll her dad,” the friend says. “Knowing that the trial is fast approaching is tough for him to absorb. It’s hard to see his little girl in such a serious situation.”

Our thoughts and prayers are with Teresa, Joe Gorga and their family.
