Jacqueline Laurita and Dina Manzo sad over Teresa Giudice's family loss

Jacqueline Laurita is no longer on "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" with Teresa Giudice but she has remained her friend, having mended their friendship towards the end of season five after a long feud. So it's not surprising that Jacqueline expressed sadness upon hearing that Teresa's father-in-law, Joe Giudice's father Frank, died suddenly at their house on Wednesday, June 18.

Later that day, Jacqueline tweeted that she was so sad to hear about Frank's death. She added that Frank was a man with a great sense of humor and that she knows how much his family loved him. Considering how close Jacqueline and Teresa are, the two used to speak on the phone every day, there's no doubt that Jacqueline reached out to Teresa personally to express her condolences.

Teresa's co-star and good friend Dina Manzo also spoke out about the sudden death. She posted a tweet asking people to join her in sending love and prayers to the Giudice family.

Other members of the "Real Housewives of New Jersey" family who have responded to the news include new housewives Amber Marchese and Nicole Napolitano. Amber tweeted her condolences, along with a quote about death not be able to kill love, to Teresa. When a fan asked Amber if she reached out to Teresa privately, Amber responded that she had. Nicole tweeted that her prayers and condolences are going to the Giudice family.

So far, neither Joe and Melissa Gorga, Teresa's brother and sister-in-law, have publicly spoken out about her family tragedy. Nor has her cousins Kathy Wakile and Rosie Pierri, though Rosie did retweet Jacqueline's Instagram post about fully appreciating life and loved ones because life is short, an obvious reference to Frank's unexpected and early death. It's likely that everyone contacted Teresa Giudice privately to express their condolences.
