How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey on Peacock and the Bravo app.  

Teresa's longtime pal and former RHONJ castmate, Dina Manzo, wrote a lengthy message remembering Antonia, who died of natural causes at age 66 last week. "My heart bleeds for my girlfriend and her family," Dina wrote, recalling 22 years worth of memories. "Over the years I've had the pleasure to get to know & love her beautiful mother. Such a warm yet strong woman. I had an immense respect for her as a woman, wife, mother and Grandmother. Often times in the height of the Real Housewives drama she would hug me extra tight goodbye and thank me for never turning on her daughter. She would tell me I was a "good girl" and much like my own parents I never wanted to disappoint her."


Fellow longtime pal, Dolores Catania, also remembered the late Gorga matriarch. "Heaven has gained a beautiful angel. My prayers are with the Guidice family," she wrote. "Love you all so much. You will be sadly missed Antonietta."

The Real Housewives of New York City's Ramona Singer also sent her condolences to Teresa and her brother, Joe Gorga. "My thoughts and prayers are with you both and your families," she wrote on Twitter.


Vicki Gunvalson, who lost her mom in February 2015, sent a special message to the RHONJ mom following her own loss. "I'm so sorry to hear about your mother @Teresa_Giudice," The Real Housewives of Orange County mom wrote. "You are in my thoughts and prayers and I'm here if you need anything."
