Antonia said goodbye to the Garden State in August 2023, just several months after graduating from high school. Fans got a look at her impending departure in RHONJ Season 14, Episode 2, which documented her bittersweet 18th birthday brunch at Elia Mediterranean Restaurant. The Jersey daughter celebrated her special day surrounded by friends and family, including her mom, Melissa; dad, Joe Gorga; and her little brothers, Gino and Joey Jr.

“Antonia, we’re toasting to you today because I honestly can’t believe that you’re 18, but I’m really so proud of, like, who you are because you’re my only daughter and I love you so much,” Melissa said during the brunch before referencing Antonia's new journey. “And I can’t believe you’re leaving me and I’m going to miss everything about you… Antonia, I want you to meet new people and explore your wild oats.”

Melissa Gorga reflects on Antonia leaving the nest: "I was so emotional"

Melissa expanded on Antonia’s college chapter in a recent interview with People magazine, explaining why she wanted to show her daughter’s “bittersweet” goodbye in RHONJ Season 14.

“I feel like it’s going to be so relatable for so many moms out there because I was happy for her, but I was also emotional and sad,” she explained. “It also felt like something was happening in my life because I’m like, ‘Where’s my child going? What point are we at here? Nobody needs their diapers changed. What’s happening?’”

She continued: “And to see her go, I was so emotional. I know that it’s going to resonate with a lot of moms out there that are about to send their kids away or their kids just left. It’s hard. It’s so bittersweet because you’re so excited for them. And then you’re also just...you just can’t stop crying.”
