As fans have seen on Season 10 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Teresa Giudice's dad, Giacinto Gorga, has struggled with his health. He has since been hospitalized late last year around the holidays, and just this month as well. And now his daughter-in-law, Melissa Gorga, is opening up about what it's been like for their family to watch him deal with his health issues.
"He goes in and out of the hospital all the time, a couple times a year, with pneumonia, and it's sad and it's scary every single time. But he always comes out of it. And he has his machines and his stuff; his lungs are not the best. He fights off sickness a lot," she said in The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 10 After Show.
She also offered up some insight into why he was spotted drinking hot sauce right from the bottle this season in the After Show clip above.
In a 2018 interview with The Daily Dish, Teresa opened up about the precautions her family has taken in the last few years around her dad, who lives with her and her four daughters. "That's the thing, none of us can be sick around him because he catches it right away. We're constantly always washing our hands," Teresa explained. "Like when you have a baby and you make sure everything's clean, that's how you have to be with him because he gets sick easily."
