Teresa Giudice's life will be even more sad and lonely now that her mother has reportedly died.

It's not yet clear why The Real Housewives of New Jersey star's mom Antonia Gorga passed away at age 66.

But Teresa, 44, who has already been dealing with the long incarceration of her husband, Joe Giudice, also 44, has even more reason to cry, according to sources.

A source told US Weekly that Teresa was at the hospital with Antonia when she died and noted, "This is a very hard time for Teresa. She was very close with her mother."

It's particularly hard timing because Teresa's husband Joe is currently serving a 41-month sentence in federal prison after pleading guilty to fraud charges. Teresa had earlier served ten months for fraud and was released in Dec. 2015.

Italian immigrant Antonia appeared on the Bravo show RHONJ with her children Teresa and Teresa's brother, Joe Gorga.

On December 19, Teresa Instagrammed a photo of her with Antonia with the caption, "Mommy I love you so much."

So far, Teresa and brother Gorga haven't taken to social media to share anything about their mother's death.

Gorga and his wife Melissa, both 37, named their daughter Antonia,  12, after the family matriarch.

With Teresa's husband Joe Giudice still a jailbird and unable to comfort her, she and their four daughters must cope on their own in New Jersey.

But the source told US that "Teresa is inconsolable now. Teresa is also in communication with her husband Joe and will be visiting as soon as she can."
