Now it seems Giacinto Gorga has been hospitalized from complications due to the lung disease, according to a Feb. 27 report from Wet Paint. Allegedly the stress of Teresa’s upcoming trial on fraud charges has contributed to his health problems. A source says that Teresa has been at her father’s side as much as possible.

Teresa and her husband Joe have been charged with 41 felony counts including mail and bank fraud. The Giudices reportedly will stand trial separately. In addition to her legal troubles and her father’s illness, Teresa has four daughters to raise as well as a career as New York Times best-selling author. Teresa also heads the Fabellini sparkling wine line and the Milania hair care line.
