Joe Giudice’s Grandma And Uncle Die In The Same Day

Joe Giudice definitely got a negative lens on the Real Housewives of New Jersey. A lot came out even after he left the show, and the country, for that matter.  Teresa Giudice’s brother Joe Gorga still spits fire when his former brother-in-law’s name comes up.  He is even feuding with his Gia Giudice now because of it.

But despite what was portrayed on reality TV, it’s clear that Teresa’s ex-husband loves his family.  His daughters Gia, Gabriella Giudice, Milania Giudice and Audriana Giudice love him dearly and often visit him in the Bahamas where Joe currently resides.

Joe’s emotions for his extended family were also apparent during a RHONJ family trip to Italy. After being deported from the USA, Joe returned for some time to the quaint Italian village where he hails from.  We should all be lucky to have such people in our lives.

Sadly, Joe lost two cherished members of his family recently.  And both passings occurred within 24 hours of each other. Earlier this week, he made the tragic announcement on Instagram.  Joe wrote, “just lost my Grandmother 87 and my Uncle Pasquale 94 in one day very sad night.”  The post included a screenshot of a video call between the two recently passed family members.

Gia posted heart emojis, while Teresa’s RHONJ rival Margaret Josephs acknowledged the tragedy by sharing prayer emojis.

In a nostalgic nod to the matriarch of his family, Joe posted several pictures of himself with his grandmother.  In one recent photo, Joe’s grandmother has his arm linked with his and they are all smiles seated together for a meal. To caption the sweet photo, Joe wrote, “Forever in out Hearts.” Again, Gia added her own heartfelt words, “dad I love you so much.  She loved you so much.”

Joe seems to be taking the news really hard, but friends are giving him a lot of support.  His social media is flooded with words of sympathy and condolences.  “Everyone gets a grandmother, only the lucky get a nonna,” Joe’s most recent post read.  He captioned the picture, “Nonna Peppina the one and only.”
