While her girls are away visiting her estranged husband, Joe Giudice, in Italy, Teresa Giudice is spending time with the most special man in her life, her dad! The “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star flaunted her Christmas night out on social media Wednesday, just one month after she rushed home from BravoCon because he was hospitalized with pneumonia. Teresa and her father, Giacinto Gorga, went to Il Mulino in New York for a steak dinner with her brother, Joe Gorga, and his wife, Melissa, where they indulged in an Italian feast and lots of booze.
Mangiare & Famiglia!
Giacinto seemed like he was feeling much better because Teresa Giudice showed off their massive alcohol consumption on Christmas night, which included her dad drinking at least three large glasses of liquor. The "RHONJ" star posed alongside her 76-year-old father during dinner and seemed like the happiest daughter, despite being separated from her children over the holidays. Teresa's four daughters -- Gia, 18, Gabriella, 15, Milania, 14, and Audriana, 10 -- are currently in Italy visiting their dad just one week following the reality star duo announcing their separation after 20 years of marriage.
As The Blast reported, Teresa Giudice's father was hospitalized in November with pneumonia and she was forced to leave Bravo's first-ever convention to be by his bedside. The New Jersey housewife gave fans a fright when she posted a photo with her father and asked her followers to pray for him. She then linked an article explaining the situation. “Sorry, BravoCon fans. I had to leave,” she stated in an Instagram video. "My dad doesn’t feel well. I’m taking him to the hospital,” she added.
Her Split From Joe:
Prior to her dad's hospitalization, he was in Italy visiting Joe Giudice. News revealing Teresa and Joe were separating broke on December 19 but according to People, “there are no plans for divorce” at this time. Despite lasting through two prison sentences and raising four daughters, his looming deportation case and moving to Italy proved to be too much for the "RHONJ" couple. Despite the public split, Teresa Giudice showed Joe some love on Instagram days later than shared a cryptic message about change.
