Giudice's brother, Joe Gorga - another "RHONJ" star - has not publicly reacted to the loss of his mom. Her death was reportedly from natural causes.

"Yes, Antonia Gorga passed away at the age of 66", a source told Us Weekly.

Per US Magazine Teresa was with her mother in the hospital when she died. Antonia made appearances on the Bravo reality series over the years, and did her best to be supportive of her children no matter what they are going through.

The 44-year-old Giudice was known to be quite close with her mom, taking to social media as recently as in December to post a photo of the two that she captioned, "Mommy I love you so much ❤️ #daughtersloveforhermom". Her last Instagram, posted on Wednesday, March 1, showed her work with the NephCure Kidney International Foundation.


We send our thoughts and condolences to all of Antonia's loved ones during this hard time.

There is some sad news breaking today from within the Real Housewives of New Jersey family.

'My mother was a very cherished part of our family and she'll be deeply missed. She regularly visited Teresa in prison and gave her strength to deal with the situation until she could come home. Softly... May Peace replace heartaches...

Giudice also shared a family portrait with her parents sitting in the center. They have four children together: Gia, Gabriella, Milania, and Audriana. Our hearts are just breaking for Teresa and her family right now. There were suspicions that they hid some assets in their bankruptcy filing, and their jail sentences were for fraud committed in relation to both the bankruptcy filing and loan applications.
