Teresa's dad has had a history of health worries.

Not long after the star's mother Antonia passed at the age of 66 earlier this year in March, the family had to take dad to the emergency room because he was 'coughing up blood.'

Although the hospital visit was scary for Teresa and family, his condition didn't turn out to be anything serious.

But when mom Antonia passed this past Spring, the New York Times bestseller was said?to be 'inconsolable.'

'[It] was a very hard time for Teresa,' an insider of the Housewife said, adding 'She was very close with her mother.'?

Oh no: Gorga (2013, above) has had several health scares lately, having been sent to the emergency room because he was 'coughing up blood' shortly after losing his wife in March

Teresa's personal struggles have not been limited to her family.

In 2014, the cookbook author plead guilty to 41 counts of fraud along with husband Joe Giudice, 45.

The reality persona was sentenced to 14-months in federal prison, but only served from January 2015 until her early release in February 2016.

Joe still remains in prison with more than a year left on his 41-month sentence.?

Since getting back to the Garden State, Teresa hasn't been shy about making waves with her fellow homemakers.

Last week's episode of RHONJ saw the cookbook author literally smash a glass against the wall after fellow Jersey socialite Dolores Catania accused her of stepping out on her still-incarcerated husband Joe.

'I'm f***ing fuming right now,' said Teresa, after shattering her drinking vessel into pieces.
