This past weekend was a sad one for fans of The Real Housewives of New Jersey.
Antonia Gorga, mother of Teresa Giudice and Joe Gorga, died on Friday — the beloved matriarch passing away at the age of 66, after a lengthy hospitalization.
The ongoing family trial did not thwart Melissa Gorga from promoting her wares on social media — strutting her stuff and posting the shots on Instagram.
On Sunday, fan opinion exploded when Melissa posted a selfie — while surrounded by raw family heartbreak.
“At least wait couple of days … totally disrespectful”
“Bad timing! Smh!! RIP Antonia Gorga ????????”
“So disappointed. Who approved this. @envybymg especially being Italian, u should know better. Poor choice!”
“Wow, you would think her media people would have better sense.”
“disrespectful @envybymg @melissagorga”
“THIS IS AWFUL!!!! Melissa you should be ashamed of yourself!”
“Horrible to post a cheap shirt after her mother in law dies
heatherkkb Tacky Tacky Tacky. Your showing your lack of class. Take care of your Family.”
“Yesss I totally agree. Not a good idea to post this pic when Melissa’s MIL just passed away. Very disrespectful.”
“Very inappropriate post!”
Melissa posted a family shot a few hours earlier, as tribute to her mother-in-law, writing, “May she Rest In Peace. She was a beautiful woman who loves her children & grandchildren so immensely❤ I watched Joe & Teresa sit by her side for the last three months, the heart in this family is strong & she will live in our hearts forever.”
Melissa shifted from sentimental back to selfie in a flash — and is being raked mercilessly for it. Do you think that she deserves it?
