Losing a loved one during a time where we cannot even go to places of worship or funerals; it is just a disasters amidst a global pandemic. There are no words so when 'RHONJ' star and OG, Teresa Giudice asked fans for prayers for her father, we all hoped he was having a hard time being cooped up, like all of us, despite longstanding health issues. Unfortunately, it was a lot more serious and, early this morning, Giacinto Gorga, passed away. He was 76. In a series of three photos on Giudice's Instagram, the mother of four posted a tribute to her dad (he is also the father to Joey Gorga, husband to fellow housewife, Melissa):

"My father, my protector, my hero, God took you early this morning to be with mommy, I saw you peacefully pass & I know you kept fighting for my daughters and I. I have so many amazing thoughts of you, every day seeing you in the kitchen at my home, teaching my girls to cook, my partner in crime on shopping trips, your love of the shore & my travel buddy. You always wanted everyone to have a good time, eat great food, have a stiff drink and enjoy life." 

Joey posted his own IG tribute, as did Melissa, who lost her dad as a teenager and referred to her father-in-law as "the only dad I've known for the past 16 years." The care of Giacinto aka Nonno has caused much stress and bickering on past seasons of the hit Bravo show. Since Teresa and Joey's mother, Antonia passed away in 2017, Nonno had primarily lived with Teresa and it served helpful for her as now estranged husband, Joe Giudice, was away in jail for 41 months then in ICE custody and now deported to Italy. He was able to assist with cooking and supervising of her children but Teresa always felt her brother should spend more time with their father. She then believed Melissa should force her husband to spend more time with his father thus much dissension in the Gorga family. But now they must come together to remember Giacinto and let it all go because he would want it that way. May he rest in peace!

You can catch up on past seasons of 'RHONJ' on several streaming services, including Hulu!

A 'Jerseylicious' Split!

  photo courtesy of When you were on a semi-successful reality show, especially as one of the key players, and everyone watched your love story unfold, it only makes sense they will want to keep following you after the series has ended. Such has been the case for 'Jerseylicious' star, Tracy DiMarco , who always went head-to-head with Olivia Blois-Sharpe on the show based around the never-ending drama at the Jersey salon, The Gatsby. Eventually, DiMarco got her happily ever after when she married Corey Epstein in her dream wedding. She continued to pursue her passion, have three kids, develop a wildly successful podcast, and work on clothing and accessories.  But, when you are in the public eye, boasting 541K followers on Instagram , almost everything you do is up for scrutiny. Fans (and haters) began to notice a lack of presence when it came to her husband, Corey and questioned if their marriage was okay. There is an abundance of photos of daughters, Skylar and

'The Real L Word' Cast- Where Are They Now?
