See A Young Joe Gorga With Teresa Giudice Before RHONJ

The brother-sister pair from the Garden State used to be much more close than they are today.

While there are plenty of beloved husbands in the Real Housewives franchise, The Real Housewives of New Jersey‘s Joe Gorga is someone special. Maybe its because he’s been around so long  — we met Joe and wife Melissa Gorga when she made a guest appearance in Season 2 of RHONJ, and knew him through his sister Teresa Giudice before that — but it feels like we’ve grown up with the guy.

And yet those familial ties that stood him in good stead for many seasons have deteriorated, between Teresa’s divorce and her ongoing issues with his wife, Melissa. But we can still look back at happier times for Joe and his family.

Here, the Gorga family — Joe, Teresa, Giacinto, and Antonia — looks absolutely pristine in their church outfits at what appears to be Teresa’s first communion. While the rest of the family is serious, young Joe has his cool-guy personality down with a soft smile and hands-in-pockets pose.

Joe was born in August 1974, making this is an ’80s photo through and through.

This photo communicates two main points. The first: family has always been important to the Gorgas. The second: Joe was extremely into tube socks as a child.

As a teenager, the Jersey boy played for his hometown basketball team while his Teresa was a baton twirler.

“Happy anniversary to the most amazing woman who has brought 19 years of pure joy and love into my life,” wrote Joe via Instagram in an anniversary ode to Melissa in August 2023.

Joe honored his mom, Antonia. by naming his first child, daughter Antonia, after her.

The elder Antonia passed away in 2017 at age 66.

Two years after her death, Joe posted a tribute to the matriarch on Instagram that mentioned how much he missed her and her cooking.

“Happy Birthday to an amazing person,” he wrote in October 2019. “I miss you so much everyday. God I wish I had your sauce today. I love you.”

Joe Gorga and the Wakile Family

It looks like Joe took a moment away from his wedding in 2004 to snap a photo with cousin Kathy’s children, Victoria and Joseph.

During BravoCon 2023, Joe Gorga talked about seeing Joe Giudice for the first time since the latter’s 2018 deportation from the United States.

“I’m gonna clarify something about this: I grew up with this man,” he said during the “In a Jersey State of Mind” panel. “That moment … was so real. And it was amazing. It really was, and we saw each other. We hugged each other, and it was such a beautiful moment.”
