“The Real Housewives of New Jersey” star Teresa Giudice has been dealing with her sick father for quite some time. He has been struggling with weak lungs and Joe Gorga has revealed that he does have a bad heart. He has been rushed to the hospital several times, but it sounds like Teresa is there by his side, as he isn't doing too well these days. According to a new Radar Online report published on Feb. 25, “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” star Teresa Giudice’s father, Giacincto Gorga, is currently back in the hospital to deal with his emphysema.

“Teresa was right there by his side,” a friend has revealed about Giudice. “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.” Of course, Teresa has always rushed to her father’s side when something was wrong, as shown on “The Real Housewives of New Jersey.”

And Teresa wants to spend time with her father so she doesn’t have to deal with the immediate situation of her legal issues. Teresa and her husband are currently facing trial for conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, bank fraud, making false statements on loan applications and bankruptcy fraud. “The strain of Teresa’s legal struggles has taken a toll her dad,” the insider revealed. “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.”
