As if dealing with her legal drama weren't enough for Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice, her dad is also quite ill. So she is sharing a happy memory from her family's past. 

Teresa and Joe Gorga's dad, Giacinto Gorga, was reportedly hospitalized last month due to complications from emphysema. This is apparently not the first time he has been hospitalized, and we wish him a speedy recovery.

Teresa clearly has her dad in her thoughts this week. On March 6, she tweeted a photo from his much younger days. "This was my dad at the age 27. #tbt," she captions it.

Giacinto is looking very dapper in this pic, as he is all decked out in a suit. He's quite a looker, no? And he's certainly better dressed than most 27-year-old guys we know. 

Sources report that Teresa was at his side in the hospital. "She’s very close to her father, and it was devastating to see him lying in a hospital bed — she’s already so stressed, and this just broke her heart," says a source. "She’s going through an extremely difficult time."

This is just one more hardship for Teresa to deal with, as she and husband Joe pleaded guilty to fraud charges this week.
