Teresa Giudice Shares Heartbreaking Message In Honor Of Late Mother

If there's one thing that "Real Housewives of New Jersey" fans know, it's that Teresa Giudice loves her family to the core and would do anything for them. Let us not forget that one iconic reunion special when Teresa knocked Andy Cohen over to let Danielle Staub know, "Do NOT bring up my family!"

So when her mother Antonia Gorga died in March 2017, per Bravo TV, and her father Giacinto Gorga passed away in March 2020, it hit Teresa like a ton of bricks. "My father, my protector, my hero, God took you early this morning to be with mommy, I saw you peacefully pass & I know you kept fighting for my daughters and I," Teresa wrote in a heartfelt Facebook tribute. 

Similarly, if a person decided to look through Teresa's Instagram, they would find countless photos celebrating the wonderful memories she made with her mother and father. October 20 is the anniversary of Antonia's birthday, and Teresa posted another sweet — but sad — tribute on IG to celebrate her mom on her very special day.

Teresa Guidice celebrates her late mom's birthday

Teresa Giudice wrote a sweet and heartbreaking birthday message on her Instagram to her mother Antonia Gorga, who died in March 2017. "Happy Birthday to my Beautiful Mommy in heaven. I miss you so much, there isn't a day that goes by without something reminding me of you," Teresa said. "Thank you for being my guardian angel and always looking after me and the girls. I love you forever."

Both of Teresa's parents' deaths hit her and her family really hard, and Teresa was never afraid to share her feelings about it during Season 11 of "Real Housewives of New Jersey." "I miss my dad so much," Teresa said. "I feel like an orphan now. I feel like I'm all alone, but I'm happy he's with my mom." Teresa also poured out her feelings about her mom's death on "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" alum Brandi Glanville's "Unfiltered" podcast. "I miss her so much, and it's just the hardest thing. Life's good, and life sucks. I needed my mom still. She was 66," Teresa said (via The Daily Dish). "She was too young."

According to Page Six, Teresa posted on her Instagram story a photo of a new tattoo on her left rib cage dedicated to her deceased mother back in March. The tattoo says "Sempre Insieme," which means "always together." The message is clear: Teresa's mother will be with her, forever.
