“Real Housewives of New Jersey embattled star Teresa Giudice’s father-in-law Frank Giudice died suddenly in her yard on June 18. He was 63.
Frank Giudice and his son Joe (Teresa’s husband) were chasing the family dog when Frank fell ill and collapsed. The news comes as another devastating blow as the “RHONJ” couple must deal with the aftermath of fraud charges. Joe and Teresa’s sentencing hearing was scheduled for July 8 but in light of this recent event, has been rescheduled for September 23. Joe also faces possible deportation.
Reportedly, Teresa was not home when the tragedy occurred but did arrive shortly afterwards. Although 911 dispatched help, it was unfortunately too late. One source stated that Teresa was happy the family recently spent Father’s Day together by celebrating with a big party.
Frank is survived by three children – Joe, Maria and Pete and at least four grandchildren (Joe and Teresa’s four daughters).
