Giudice Dad Drops Dead

RHONJ’s JOE & TERESA GIUDICE’s horrific family tragedy as his father Frank died suddenly in yard.

 

The “Real Housewives of New Jersey star’s dad was 63 and has been a fixture on the Bravo reality series, daughter-in-law and their four beautiful daughters.

 

Reportedly, Teresa was not at the home when Frank collapsed and Joe was there with just one of their daughters.

 “Teresa arrived shortly after it happened,” a source close to the family told RadarOnline.

“He had just collapsed in the yard. They called 9-1-1 but there was basically nothing anyone could do when they got there. This was totally out of the blue.”

“Teresa asks for privacy and prayers,” Wendy Feldman, the Giudice’s rep, said viaTwitter.

Frank appeared with Teresa and Joe in court earlier this year as they faced their felony tax evasion charges.

 “Teresa said immediately that she was so glad they got to be with him on Father’s Day. They had a big party and he was there and it is a wonderful last memory of him,” the source said.
