Antonia Gorga, the mother of Teresa Giudice and Joe Gorga, died on Friday of natural causes, according to PEOPLE and E! News. She was 66. Teresa confirmed her passing in a touching tribute on Instagram. 

How to Watch

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

"Thank you for the love and support during this extremely difficult time. My mother was a very cherished part of our family and she'll be deeply missed. Each and every one of your messages of love & support are so appreciated," Teresa said. "Give her eternal rest O Lord and may your light shine on her forever."

If Antonia's name sounds familiar it's because Joe and wife, Melissa Gorga, named their 12-year-old daughter after her. Antonia, who has made appearances on RHONJ in the past, is survived by her two kids, seven grandchildren, and Teresa and Joe's dad, Giacinto Gorga.
