Teresa Giudice took some time off from promoting her memoir on Thursday night to support her niece and nephews. That night, Teresa, along with one of her daughters, Milania, went to New York City to watch Joe and Melissa Gorga’s three children walk the runway at the Kids Rock! fashion show during New York Fashion Week.
Prior to the show, Teresa and Milania posed on the red carpet with Joe, Melissa, and their kids.
Teresa sat right next to Melissa and Joe on the front row. BravoTV.com’s the Daily Dish posted more photos of the event. One photo shows Teresa smiling while Melissa and Joe take photos as Antonia walks by. Another photo shows Melissa and Teresa leaning towards one another and smiling at the camera.
Teresa enjoyed herself at the fashion show. She tweeted that it was a “great” event and that she’s glad that she was there.
Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga weren’t the only ones from the Real Housewives family who was at the show. Aviva Drescher, who starred on The Real Housewives of New York City on its fifth and sixth seasons, was there as well. Aviva posted a photo of herself with Teresa, whom she called a true example of strength, grace, and beauty.
Earlier in the week, Bravo announced that Season 7 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey will air later this year and that it will star Teresa, Melissa, and Jacqueline Laurita. Right after the announcement, Melissa posted a photo of herself with Jacqueline and Teresa.
In a two-part Watch What Happens Live interview that aired on Tuesday and Wednesday nights, Teresa spoke with Andy Cohen about her relationship with Melissa and Jacqueline. Throughout the seasons, Real Housewives viewers have watched Teresa feuding with both Melissa and Jacqueline. While Teresa and Melissa came to a truce prior to the sixth season and seemed to get along well, the Teresa Checks In special that aired in October 2015 revealed that Teresa never approved Melissa to visit her in prison. Melissa’s husband, Teresa’s brother Joe, was filmed visiting Teresa without Melissa.
Teresa admitted that she and Melissa still had a bit of a strained relationship. Teresa told Andy that she even laughed about it with Joe.
“When I left, obviously, things weren’t the greatest between Melissa and I. Me and my brother were laughing about it, it was a scene that we already filmed [for the upcoming seventh season of RHONJ], and I said to him, ‘I really didn’t want to spend five hours sitting with Melissa and chatting with her in the visiting room,’ and we laughed about it.”
Teresa, who began her prison sentence in early January 2015 and was released in late December 2015, also said that there simply wasn’t enough time.
“By the time she sent it in, it was like three months later, and my list was full at the time. I took my brother-in-law Pete off the list to add my brother.”
Yet Teresa made clear that she appreciates Joe and Melissa helping care take of her four daughters while she was away. Teresa even said that she loves Melissa.
“Oh, of course. Listen, to me, family means the world to me. I love my brother. I love Melissa. I love my nieces and nephews. I want them in my life.”
Like Teresa Giudice’s relationship with Melissa Gorga, it seems that Teresa’s relationship with Jacqueline Laurita is going well as well. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Jacqueline attended Teresa’s first book signing. Teresa publicly thanked Jacqueline for supporting her at her first public event since her prison release. Yet, Andy Cohen hinted that viewers will still see some tension between the two women when the new season airs when he commented in an “Ask Andy” segment that Teresa’s relationship with Jacqueline is “fiery” and “interesting.”
