RHONJ Stars Plead with Fans to Pray for Giudice Patriarch

RHONJ‘s Teresa took to Instagram on Thursday night with a request for fans: pray for my dad. In a heartfelt post, she asked for any “extra prayers” and “love” be sent to her dad. While Teresa didn’t elaborate on what’s going on with her dad, what she did say didn’t sound good.

The RHONJ star wrote that her dad is “struggling.” She also said that “my girls and I need him,” which seems to imply he is sick.



As fans know, Teresa has four daughters with estranged husband Joe Giudice.

Former RHONJ star Joe Giudice left a comment on the post sending his love to his family. He implored God to help his “father in law and family.” Teresa and her husband split in late 2019 after 20 years of marriage. He is living in Italy while waiting for an answer to his deportation appeal.

Italy is under lockdown due to the coronavirus outbreak. Fans left questions on Teresa’s Instagram, wondering if her dad might have coronavirus or other medical issues.

Teresa’s brother, Joe Gorga, also made an Instagram post about his dad. He shared a photo of the two of them with the caption that his dad is the “toughest man” he knows. He put a prayer emoji at the end of the caption.


Many fans responded to the post with thoughts and prayers for his dad.

In a post that largely went unnoticed by media outlets, Melissa Gorga asked for prayers for her father-in-law for her birthday, March 21. She also didn’t explain what was going on with him. But she said, “he is the best soul.”


Joe Gorga replied to his wife’s post by saying his dad sacrificed everything for his family.

People reports that Teresa’s dad has been self-isolating with her and her family in New Jersey.
