Melissa Gorga has kept her silence since returning to The Real Housewives of New Jersey as she wanted to work on her relationship with Teresa Giudice. Melissa knew that she needed to make an effort to get her relationship back on track with Teresa as the two of them had faced some hardships before she went to prison. Giudice had questioned her family members as they were speaking out about her legal problems and her time in prison. And clearly, she wasn’t happy about it. Melissa did her best to be supportive, which is why they have been able to get along ever since Giudice was released.
According to a new tweet, Melissa Gorga is getting support from The Real Housewives of New Jersey fans for being genuine and open about her support for her sister-in-law. Melissa’s husband, Joe Gorga, has also tried to be there for Teresa, and fans appreciate that they are working hard to keep the relationship strong despite outside influences.

“From the heart,” Melissa Gorga wrote on Twitter after writing a heartfelt blog, to which one person added, “I agree. You are very human — genuine and thoughtful — and it completely comes across on screen and off.”
“Ty. I’m glad it does,” Melissa revealed on Twitter, thanking her followers for recognizing that she’s trying.

But it sounds like Melissa Gorga couldn’t manage all her relationships at once. When Gorga visited Watch What Happens Live this week, a person asked Gorga why she was dropping Kathy Wakile and Rosie Pierri as friends to stick with Teresa Giudice. Melissa Gorga denied dropping her former co-stars for the sake of Teresa, but she did reveal that they had grown apart, according to Bravo.

“You know what, I’m not dropping them. I feel like we have grown apart. I’m not gonna lie about that. They actually stopped calling to start that off. I don’t know. Sometimes people grow apart. We didn’t have a big fight. I love them very much. They are family to us,” Melissa Gorga told Andy Cohen during her visit to the Watch What Happens Live studio, adding, “I feel like what goes on between them and Teresa, though, runs deep down the line before I was even around, generations.”
Gorga and her husband did visit Kathy Wakile and her husband Richie during Sunday’s episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, and they were shocked by how they were talking about Teresa and her husband. It’s no secret that Kathy and Rosie are upset about how they have been treated by Giudice since she has returned from prison. During their sit-down with their cousin, they were shocked to learn that Teresa had ignored them on purpose, saying that she wanted to cut out the cancer.

And while Melissa Gorga wasn’t present for the conversation, she understands why her sister-in-law is seeking some peace and quiet. Her husband turned himself in shortly after they started filming The Real Housewives of New Jersey, and Teresa just wanted to get as much out of their time together as possible.
But, it is interesting that Gorga blames Kathy and Rosie for not reaching out to her. A relationship does go two ways, and she hasn’t heard from them either, so they naturally grew apart.
