Teresa Giudice was hesitant to let Joe Gorga visit her at the Danbury Federal Correctional Institute. This was shown on The Real Housewives of New Jersey: Teresa Checks In. Teresa had a short list of people who could visit her, and she had to make room for him on that list by taking someone off. And since she has a husband and four daughters, one can imagine that her list is already pretty full.
But Teresa Giudice managed to make room for her brother to come for a visit. However, her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga has yet to be accepted for a visit by Giudice. As it turns out, Teresa has no desire to have Melissa visit her in prison. It was enough to have her brother stop by, but since there has always been a competition between Giudice and Gorga, it makes sense that Teresa doesn't want Melissa to visit.
According to a new Radar Online report, Teresa Giudice is now preventing Melissa from visiting her in prison. In an episode for The Real Housewives of New Jersey: Teresa Checks In, Joe predicted that his sister would let Melissa come up right before she is released, which could still happen. Teresa only has about six weeks left until she is released."Melissa claims that Teresa absolutely refuses to allow her to come see her in prison," a source has revealed to the website, adding, "Melissa said, 'I have asked to go see Teresa, but Teresa refuses to see me. She just refuses.'"
As it turns out, this feud between family members is something that Bravo is secretly enjoying. The production team is gearing up to film a season when Teresa Giudice is released. And one can imagine that the production team wants Melissa Gorga to join the cast since Joe did visit his sister in jail. But if the source is correct, Teresa has no interest in filming with Melissa.
"Teresa hates the Gorgas still," the source claimed. "She doesn't even want to see the Gorgas when she gets out afterwards. The only reason Teresa will see them is because she needs to film with them and they all need the money."
The Real Housewives of New Jersey is currently on hold and no contracts have been put forward. One can imagine that the production team is waiting for Teresa to be released so they can start filming. No cameras are allowed on prison grounds."Bravo is going to start filming when Teresa gets out," the source explained, adding, "Everything is waiting on Teresa—there aren't any contracts yet, no filming yet. So over the holidays, they are going to figure out a way to get those two families together."
But it will be interesting to see who will join this upcoming season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Amber Marchese and her husband, Jim, pushed for Bravo to film without Teresa when she went to prison, and these days, they have some harsh words for Teresa for allowing her children to film The Real Housewives of New Jersey: Teresa Checks In.
"I usually remain silent regarding all Real Housewives of New Jersey shenanigans, especially Andy and Bravo's judgments of what makes 'RHONJ' great, however he publicly criticized my decision to include my children on the show," Amber Marchese said, according to the Latin Post. "They crossed a line and so now, they get my iron fist response."
