How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey Sundays at 8/7c on Bravo and stream next day on Peacock.

Teresa Giudice honored her late mom, Antonia Gorga, with a series of touching Instagram posts Friday. "Happy Birthday Mommy. I Love you so much and miss you so much. I think about you all the time every second every minute of the day," Teresa wrote, adding that she even still called her mom's home to check in after she touched down in London this week. "Still cannot believe it, my heart breaks everyday that you are not here with us. Love you more than I can express. I Love you Mommy."


Melissa Gorga shared some moments from Antonia's last birthday in October 2016, when they gathered with Gorga family patriarch Giacinto, Joe Gorga, and their children to celebrate the big day. "The kids think about you everyday and pray to you every night," Melissa captioned a sweet moment from the family party. "Happy Birthday in Heaven."


Joe also sent his mother his best birthday wishes. "I miss you and love you so much," he said on Instagram. "I still can't believe [sic] your gone."

The RHONJ family said goodbye to Antonia in March when she passed away from natural causes. Teresa recently opened up to The Daily Dish about how she and her family are dealing with the loss now more than seven months later. "Thank God we're doing OK. It's sad, the loss of my mom, and you know, we're just dealing with it the best that we can. I miss her tremendously. I still can't believe she's not here. I feel like she's gonna call me later or like I'm gonna see her later," she shared (clip above). "It's really like a bad dream, and I'm still kind of numb over it. I don't know if I'll ever get used to it."
