REAL Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice’s brother, Joe Gorga, gave an update on the star’s health crisis after she was rushed to the hospital for “emergency” surgery.
Teresa’s oldest daughter Gia, 21, posted a photo of her mom in a hospital bed on Thursday with a mask on.

Gia captioned the photo: “Such a trooper I love you. Pray for a speedy recovery I love you @teresagiudice.”
Teresa’s brother Joe exclusively told The Sun his sister has been released from the hospital.
Joe said: “She’s doing great. She is home now.
“She will share what happened soon.”
Her attorney also told People of the health crisis: “Teresa was admitted to the hospital last night and had a non-cosmetic emergency procedure this morning.
“She is recuperating and is looking forward to a speedy recovery. She thanks everyone for their prayers and well wishes.”
Teresa, 49, is in the middle of planning her wedding to her fiancé Luis Ruelas, 47, who has appeared on the Bravo series.
The Sun previously reported he is currently in legal and financial trouble, as he, his company Produce Depot and various business partners have been sued by vendors in five separate lawsuits for a total of $646,301.65.
The vendors complained they did not receive some or all of payments for produce they provided for the company.
Certain vendors even claimed checks provided were returned by the bank for “insufficient funds.”
Three of the lawsuits were dismissed by both parties, while two remain ongoing.
Luis and the other defendants have denied the allegations in the ongoing lawsuits.
Produce Depot filed for bankruptcy on March 2, 2022 for $1,660,488.10.
While Teresa has praised her boyfriend for his over-the-top romantic gestures on the show, her RHONJ co-stars have been suspicious of his past.
The season opened with her co-stars discussing a video featuring Luis that resurfaced.
In the clip, the businessman can be seen bare-chested surrounded by fellow shirtless men – whom he calls his “brothers.”
He is standing on the beach and appears to be addressing one of his exes, begging her for forgiveness and claiming he is ready to “finally get married and have a life together.”
Cast member Traci Johnson called the video “bizarre” and a “red flag,” while Jackie Goldschneider found it “weird.”
Teresa’s sister-in-law Melissa Gorga said it was “crazy,” as Jennifer Aydin called it “weirdo s**t.”
Luis addressed the video later on in the season after Margaret Josephs asked him about it.
He said on the episode: “I grew up with a lot of trauma in my life. A friend of mine went out and started this thing called Warrior out in California and a lot of men go revisit their pain, to see their pain, get clarity.
“And I was in a relationship with a woman so I had to learn in that moment how to be vulnerable to that woman and tell her, I’m sorry… because I didn’t want to commit to a marriage, I didn’t want to commit to a bad woman.
“So I went to apologize to a woman for not being honest and saying it’s over.”
But Margaret didn’t buy it, as she said: “The video we all saw, he was proposing and now he’s saying it was a breakup video?”
On last week’s episode of RHONJ, Traci’s husband and former NFL player Tiki Barber asked Luis about allegations that he was abusive towards an ex.
Luis denied the claims on the show.
In a mid-season teaser, Teresa said of Margaret: “She’s been dragging my boyfriend through the mud.”
The two even appear to get physical over the feud.
The Sun broke Luis was accused of “controlling and abusive” behavior by an ex from when he proposed in February 2019 to October 2019.
On May 20, the woman dismissed the lawsuit.
A rep for Luis did not respond to The Sun’s request for comment on the abuse claims at the time.
The mom of four and dad of two currently live in a $3,350,000 mansion in Montville Township, New Jersey that they bought after just months of dating.
