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

“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 in a Tweet on Wednesday.
