Teresa Giudice lost her father-in-law after he suddenly collapsed and died in her yard. Radar Online reports on Wednesday that the “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star missed the last opportunity to see Frank because she was not home. However, Joe and the girls were at the house, so they witnessed the tragedy.
Frank, who was Joe’s father, was helping the family create a new chicken coop and suddenly collapsed. The 63-year-old allegedly collapsed without warning, and the family has indicated he may have had a heart attack. Teresa was not home at the time of his death, and she arrived after he fell in the yard.
The stress of the upcoming trial for Joe and Teresa has been partially blamed for the latest tragedy. Although the family has tried to focus on other things such as the chicken coop project, it is clear there are serious concerns about the future. Joe and Teresa have a court date scheduled for July 8, and some fans are blaming the legal woes on Frank’s sudden collapse.
Although the media has mostly focused on Joe, he is not the only one who is suffering right now. His brother and sister, Pete and Maria, have also lost their father and are asking for respect from the public during this difficult time. They also want the media to leave Frank’s wife, Filomena, alone, so she can grieve in peace.
Fans have been posting messages of condolences on multiple social media sites, and some have pointed out the stress of the upcoming trial may have contributed to Frank’s death. Although the Giudice family has tried to smile for the cameras and keep up a happy public image, it is clear that the stress is affecting them in private. The family is asking the media for space as it grieves the loss of Frank.
