Teresa Giudice’s Dad Battles Emphysema

February 26, 2014 06:00 PM by Stephanie Gustafson


Teresa Giudice has more than enough going on in her life, what with the continued stress of all those fraud charges hanging over her head. Sadly, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star also has been forced to witness her dad losing a tragic battle with emphysema.

It’s pretty rare to see Facebook followers expressing sympathy for Teresa Giudice. But regardless of her alleged criminal history, nobody can truly wish the reality star ill while she watches her father fall prey to emphysema.

According to a recent report from Star Magazine, the father of Teresa Giudice and Joe Gorga was hospitalized on February 16th. He was struggling with complications related to his battle with lung disease, a problem that, apparently, was a long time in the making. Although Giacinto Gorga had suffered from poor health for some time, the stress surrounding his daughter’s legal woe is thought to have contributed to his most recent hospitalization. A source explained, “The strain of Teresa’s legal struggles has taken a toll her dad. 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.”

While Giacinto Gorga’s poor health has definitely been hard on Teresa Giudice, it may be an even bigger blow for Joe Gorga. After all, the reality star’s mother-in-law died just last week. Melissa Gorga announced the sad news on Twitter, explaining, “we are saying goodbye to [my mom] today.”

We hope that Teresa Giudice and Joe Gorga are able to make it through these trying times. Feel free to share your best wishes for the siblings in the comments section below.

    Money is helping a lot…..she’s just fine, and after all these huge announcements & PUBLICITY, about her father’s illness, she’s NOT going to jail for sure. She’s USING EVERYTHING and EVERYBODY!
    Some people can steal millions without any consequence, if she’s famous about something, (like this woman, being brainless, extremely vulgar and ordinary)and “making” enough money to pay for her attorneys.

    This gal is some piece of work……selfish to the nth degree. She professes that “family” is everything – but she is evil and will do anything for money at anyone’s expense. We American’s who support such nonsense are to blame.
