Melissa Gorga was excited for Teresa Giudice to come home from prison this past December. She had planned a Christmas dinner for the entire family and was excited to see Teresa at her home with both families coming together.
During the Christmas dinner, Giudice and Gorga tried to talk things through, but Melissa realized that they had some work to do if they wanted to move forward with a clean slate. However, Christmas was not the time or place to talk about their issues. Plus, Melissa knows that Teresa had her own issues with Jacqueline Laurita, so when she watched their fight on Sunday’s episode of the show, she was shocked.
According to a new Bravo report, Melissa Gorga had constantly heard two sides of the story, and her husband was even involved in the drama. During the fight, Jacqueline decided to call up Joe Gorga on speaker phone so they could settle an inaccuracy. While Teresa thought it was crazy, Laurita was convinced she would win this argument. Melissa didn’t say what she thought about the argument, but it is clear that she got some understanding of what was going on between them.

“Finally, Teresa’s dinner at Jacqueline’s house… I’ve always heard two sides of the story of what happened that night and watching this episode gave me a lot of clarity on what was actually said. I’m not going to address it now as you will soon find out in next week’s episode what my true feelings are,” Melissa Gorga explains on her Bravo blog for The Real Housewives of New Jersey, sharing that she will share her opinion on the situation in the upcoming weeks.
Since Teresa and Melissa Gorga are getting along these days, one has to wonder if she sides with Giudice. They are indeed family, but Gorga has never held back when she’s unhappy with the way Teresa is acting. However, Melissa isn’t exactly close with Jacqueline, so she may not appreciate the way she’s handling the situation. It did seem like an attack when Laurita invited Teresa over to her house for dinner and started talking about her legal situation before dinner was even served. Jacqueline opened up about her feelings, sharing that she didn’t see anything wrong in calling out her former best friend.

“Teresa trying to bring up my husband’s legal issues involving his old company that was forced into a corporate bankruptcy in comparison to her and Joe’s criminal case was totally ludicrous to me. She’s always trying to shift the spotlight on to someone else. There’s absolutely no comparison!” Jacqueline reveals on her own blog for The Real Housewives of New Jersey, which may be something Melissa Gorga doesn’t agree with.

“Then Teresa hit me with a real “LOW BLOW” by saying that her “REAL” friends knew what was going on and knew not to ask her anything about it, because they all knew it wasn’t true, and I should have just known that it wasn’t true also! Wait, what?! Clearly….it was true! Is she delusional or in denial or both? She also had led me to believe that I WAS one of her “Real” friends. Ouch!” she continued on her blog for Bravo.

It will be interesting to see what Melissa Gorga says about the situation. It’s clear that Melissa has been able to respect her sister-in-law’s legal problems, as she hasn’t said anything about it to anyone. Gorga has tried to understand where Giudice is coming from, and it sounds like space has been a good solution for them.
What side do you think Melissa Gorga is on? Do you think she will call out Laurita for being so inquisitive about her co-star’s legal troubles?
