Teresa Giudice’s father isn’t doing well.
According to a Feb. 26 report in Star Magazine, Giacinto Gorga was hospital on Feb. 16 for complications from his lung disease.
“Teresa was right there by his side,” a friend of the Real Housewives of New Jersey star revealed to the magazine. “She’s very close to her rathe, 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.”
Although the loss of a parent is something that most experience, going through it isn’t fun — especially when there is so much pain and suffering involved.
With all that Teresa is dealing with in regard to her upcoming fraud trial, having this added stress has understandably affected her. And according to the report, it's also affected her father.
“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.”
It’s very sad to think that while Teresa and her husband are facing 50 years behind bars, she’s also having to deal with her father’s fight to stay alive.
Hopefully, her friends and family are providing her with the support that she surely needs.
