The summer of 2014 already promises to be quite difficult for Joe and Teresa Giudice, but now, things are about to get that much worse. Yesterday, the Real Housewives Of New Jersey star’s father-in-law suffered a heart attack and dropped dead while enjoying quality time with Joe Giudice.
Talk about a bad week for Joe and Teresa Giudice! The couple recently suffered a terrible loss in the family, as Joe’s dad passed away the other day. At the time, Frank Giudice was at home with Joe and one of his daughters; Teresa was not present. Frank is believed to have suffered a heart attack, although Facebook fans following the story disagree on the activity he was enjoying immediately prior to his untimely death.
The rep for Joe and Teresa Giudice recently confirmed the rumors on Twitter, explaining, “Sadly it is true that the father of my client and friend Joe Giudice passed away today. @Teresa_Giudice asks for privacy and prayers.”
This is a devastating blow for Teresa and Joe, particularly as it has stolen one of their main sources of comfort away less than a month before their sentencing date. If there’s any consolation during this difficult period, it’s that the family spent quality time with Frank Giudice before he passed away. A source told Radar Online, “Teresa said immediately that she was so glad they got to be with him on Father’s Day. They had a big party and he was there and it is a wonderful last memory of him.”
How do you think this tragedy will impact Joe and Teresa Giudice as they prepare for their sentencing? Feel free to share your opinion in the comments section below.
