Will viewers see a lot of drama between Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga on Season 7 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey? Apparently not. Viewers may also not see Teresa and Jacqueline Laurita arguing. On Monday, All About The Real Housewives reported that Teresa is getting along great with both Melissa and Jacqueline.
The website quoted a source as saying that Jacqueline and Teresa are in a “very great place” with one another right now. The source added the two women have seen each other twice since Teresa was released from prison shortly before Christmas. One of those times was at new cast member Dolores Catania’s recent birthday party. That interaction will likely be aired since Season 7 is currently filming.
“Jacqueline and Teresa are in a very great place right now. They have seen each other twice since Teresa was released. Dolores recently had a birthday party and both Jacqueline and Teresa got along great. They are starting over.”
Jacqueline and Teresa used to be such good friends that they spoke with one another daily. Yet, the friendship deteriorated during the fourth season. The end of the friendship, and the drama that came along with it was a big reason why Jacqueline didn’t attend the Season 3 reunion show. As Jacqueline explained in a blog post in April 2012, the cast was already filming Season 4 when Season 3 was airing, and they had to film the Season 3 reunion show.
“It was too difficult for me to go to the Season 3 reunion, because I was very drained emotionally and overtired from crying all night out of frustration and sadness. It would have been very difficult to look at Teresa and not be able to express what I was actually feeling… As you should know, we were filming Season 4 as Season 3 was airing, and I could not have discussed anything that was going on in my head or anything that we had been filming. My animosity would have been unexplainable. As you remember, Teresa and I were fine in Season 3. I can’t even say that the entire reason I didn’t attend was because of Teresa. There were other factors involved in my decision, but my disappointment with her was a big one. I was just tired, fed up, angry, stressed out, depressed… The truth is, I had a breakdown.”
On Season 4, Jacqueline felt caught in the middle as Teresa battled with Caroline Manzo, who is Jacqueline’s sister-in-law, and Melissa. Jacqueline tried to get all of the women to come together, only for Teresa to lash out at her. Eventually, Jacqueline felt that how Teresa treated and behaved towards Caroline and Melissa was wrong and that she couldn’t continue in a friendship with her. On Season 6, Jacqueline appeared only in a few episodes, mostly with Kathy Wakile. Jacqueline did not film any scenes with Teresa, nor did she film the reunion show. One scene did show Jacqueline crying upon learning of Teresa’s prison sentence, and wondering if she should reach out to her.
Besides Jacqueline Laurita, Teresa Giudice is also reportedly back on good terms with sister-in-law Melissa Gorga. On Seasons 3 and 4, the two women frequently feuded with one another. The feud got especially heated after Melissa believed that Teresa planted rumors that she used to work as a stripper. The relationship between Teresa and her brother, Melissa’s husband, Joe Gorga, suffered, as well. Yet, by the filming of the sixth season, the two women had come to a truce. Unlike the previous seasons, Season 6 showed Teresa and Melissa remaining cordial with one another. A source told All About The Real Housewives that the relationship between the two women is currently going “great.”
“Melissa and Teresa have been getting along great. They have each others back and the relationship with them is the best it’s ever been. No fakeness between them and Teresa’s parents are thrilled about this. However, that can always change.”
Teresa’s supposedly “great” relationships with Jacqueline Laurita and Melissa Gorga may be attributed in part to her daily morning exercise. On Monday, Teresa tweeted that she starts off her mornings by doing yoga at home.
Teresa Giudice also tweeted about how happy she is being able to be with her daughters again.
