Teresa Giudice's Emergency Hospitalization Sparks Major Concern

"The Real Housewives of New Jersey" star Teresa Giudice lives in the headlines for her bold personality, famous feuds, and relationship updates. Since opening up her doors to the franchise in 2009, fans have been watching her drama unfold on their screens. In Season 6 of the hit series, Teresa and now ex-husband Joe Giudice's legal battles were on full display, which ended in her serving an 11-month sentence for bankruptcy fraud, as reported by E! News. Fast forward to Season 12 of "RHONJ," Teresa's feud with co-star Margaret Josephs is front and center.

But this time around, the reality TV queen is making headlines for a scary reason. Page Six reports that on Wednesday, March 23, 2022 Teresa was hospitalized and had emergency "non-cosmetic" surgery the following morning. Fans were understandably on edge awaiting news of her recovery. On Friday, March 25, Teresa's lawyer James Leonard told TMZ that Teresa was home and resting. "She is recuperating and is looking forward to speedy recovery," Leonard explained in an update on Teresa's condition. "She thanks everyone for their prayers and well wishes."

According to the entertainment outlet, a source revealed that Teresa had surgery to remove her appendix, though her rep has yet to confirm.

Messages of support poured in on social media

On Thursday, March 24, Teresa Giudice's daughter Gia turned to Instagram to channel positive vibes and prayers for her mom. In a sweet gesture, she posted a picture of Teresa in the hospital to her Instagram story and captioned it "Such a trooper, I love you. Pray for a speedy recovery. I love you @teresagiudice," per People

More well wishes came in for the reality star. In one tweet, a fan shared their experience with appendectomy (the surgery TMZ's source alleges Teresa underwent), writing "Praying for you and the recovery I was 27 days hospitalized for mine, it exploded as they were beginning the procedure. Be safe and rest.. God bless and don't let the fools saying it is not serious dismay you."

As of this writing, Teresa has not yet commented on her recent health scare. But despite the silence, she was active on Instagram on Friday and reposted some of the supporting messages she received on her Instagram stories. She also shared a video of herself relaxing at home with daughters Gia and Milania, Page Six notes.
