Melissa Gorga and Teresa Giudice seem to be getting along better than ever before — but is their relationship just patched up for Bravo television cameras? According to Radar Online, Melissa and Teresa’s relationship is still strained and the women just put on a front for the public. Despite Melissa seeming like she is supporting Teresa during this difficult time in her life, there is apparently a lot of hard feelings that neither of them can move past.
An insider shared:
“Teresa and Melissa aren’t friends, not even close. The only time they talk to each other or interact is when filming ‘Housewives,’ or promoting it.”
Melissa Gorga and her husband, Joe Gorga, have been up and down with Teresa Giudice and her husband, Joe. It certainly has not been easy for the four of them to forget the past and move on with life, and despite several attempts at working this out, it’s just not what it used to be anymore.
The source continued:
“Teresa’s relationship with her brother Joe, Melissa’s husband, isn’t much better. Although they do talk and text each other on the telephone, Joe isn’t happy with the way Melissa was treated by Teresa in the past, and just can’t forget it.”
The new season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey premieres on Sunday, July 13 on Bravo. You can expect to see a lot of Melissa and Teresa bonding, but don’t be fooled. The women are not 100 percent — not even close.
Despite their supposed “fake” relationship, Teresa did have some positive things to say about the RHONJ cast during a recent interview. According to Us Weekly, Teresa said that everyone has been extremely supportive of her and that she’s thankful to the other housewives for that.
Melissa Gorga is presumably included in that “everyone” statement — and she does seem supportive despite what the aforementioned source had to say. In a related report by The Inquisitr, Teresa and Joe’s July court date was moved to September after the sudden death of Joe’s father, Frank Giudice. They have a couple of short months left before they find out their fate. Both Teresa and Joe face prison after pleading guilty to several federal fraud charges brought against them. It’s unknown what will happen to the four Giudice girls if both of their parents are sentenced to prison — but Teresa and Joe have made one thing quite clear: They do not want Melissa and Joe Gorga raising their kids.
