"The Real Housewives of New Jersey" star Teresa Giudice, whose mother Antonia Gorga died at 66 this weekend, has broken her silence about her loss.
Late Saturday evening, Giudice posted a collage of six photos of herself with her mom on Instagram, writing, "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. Give her eternal rest O Lord and may your light shine on her forever."
As a follow-up, Giudice posted a photo of a photo of her extended family on Instagram Sunday, captioning it, "I miss my mommy so much."
Giudice's mom had appeared on "RHONJ." Giudice's brother, Joe Gorga — another "RHONJ" star — has not publicly reacted to the loss of his mom.
People magazine reports that Teresa and Joe's families spent Christmas Eve together, uniting while Giudice's husband, Joe Giudice, spends 41 months in prison for bankruptcy fraud.
