Teresa Giudice’s wild weekend at BravoCon was cut short when her elderly father, Giacinto Gorga, suffered a medical emergency, BSYI News can confirm.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey star was forced to leave the hotly-anticipated reality TV event in NYC on Saturday, November 16, to rush her dad to the hospital, she told social media followers.
“Sorry, BravoCon fans,” Teresa, 47, told her followers in an Instagram Story video, where one could see an ambulance in the distance. “I had to leave. My dad doesn’t feel well. I’m taking him to the hospital.”
Though she has not updated followers on her father’s condition, a source told BSYI News the 76-year-old beloved reality grandpa remains in the hospital, and the family is still unsure about the exact problem.
“They don’t know what the issue is yet, but they will likely learn more today,” the family source said.
BSYI News' readers know Giacinto has struggled with health issues in recent years.
In October 2018, he was admitted into the hospital twice in the span of one week due to his worsening pneumonia.
“The family is so worried about his health,” a source told BSYI News at the time.
Giacinto’s latest health crisis comes two years after he mourned the death of his longtime wife, Teresa’s mother Antonia.
“I’m gonna go see my wife,” an ailing Giacinto was heard saying in a video posted on his son Joe Gorga’s Instagram amid his last pneumonia battle. “I miss my wife.”
Teresa once bashed her brother for allegedly failing to visit their sick father.
In a November 2018 episode of RHONJ, Joe, 40, said he was busy working and didn’t have time to see Giacinto, but Teresa was not buying his excuses.
“You have to make time. In life, that’s how it is,” she said.
Of course, Teresa has a host of other family problems amid her father’s illness.
Her husband, Joe Giudice, is currently exiled in Italy amid his deportation appeal, and is unlikely to be allowed to return to the United States anytime soon.
The parents of four daughters reunited for the first time in three years outside prison walls earlier this month, but an insider told BSYI News the “tense” meeting didn’t save the marriage.
“They’re getting a divorce,” an insider said.
Two of the stars of Bravo's hit show, The Real Housewives of Potomac, are currently facing the REAL possibility of an arrest and having to spend time in jail.
