Teresa Giudice and sister-in-law Melissa Gorga now appear to have buried the hatchet after years of feuding on Real Housewives of New Jersey, but is their friendship all for the cameras?
According to a new report by Radar Online, Teresa and Melissa, who are happily showing off their sisterly bond on Season 7 of Real Housewives of New Jersey, are allegedly playing up their friendship for the Bravo cameras and supposedly are still feuding behind the scenes.
The site is claiming that Gorga and Giudice’s newfound friendship is actually a “scam” and even went as far as to allege that the reality stars still “can’t stand” each other behind closed doors after feuding on the New Jersey version of the Bravo franchise ever since Melissa first joined the cast during Season 3.
“[Teresa and Melissa’s] relationship is a scam,” a source close to production on the reality series claimed of Giudice and Gorga’s relationship to Radar Online, suggesting that all is not as it seems between the recently reconciled sister-in-law’s following their nasty feud that played out on the show.
“Teresa can’t stand Melissa,” the insider then went on to allege of Gorga and Giudice’s seemingly continuing feud, claiming that the idea that Giudice has now buried the hatchet with her sister-in-law after being at each other’s throats for the past several seasons is “not true.”
The accusations that Gorga and Giudice are allegedly not as friendly as they seem on camera will likely come as a shock to Real Housewives of New Jersey fans who have flocked to social media to praise Melissa, Teresa and Joe Gorga for reconciling after seeing Giudice’s nasty feud with her brother and his wife boil over on numerous occasions on the reality series.
“I’m just so happy how much Joe, Melissa and Teresa have progressed. I hope this continues #rhonj” Twitter user @Invisacol tweeted out of the reunited family members, while @SharronKidd9 wrote, “I’m happy that Melissa and Teresa are getting close… Happy for them.”
“Love watching Melissa and Teresa and so happy there a great family again,” Real Housewives of New Jersey fan @lindacushing65 tweeted out after seeing Melissa and Teresa seemingly put their past feud behind them on season 7 of the reality series. “Sending you lots of prayers.”
Radar Online‘s claims that Melissa and Teresa supposedly haven’t patched up their feud away from the Real Housewives of New Jersey cameras come just days after Gorga addressed her and Giudice’s reconciliation in a blog for Bravo.
Speaking out about being friends with Giudice once again after an almost five-year-long feud, Melissa addressed their reconciliation and told fans of the New Jersey Housewives franchise that “actions speak louder than words” when it comes to her and Giudice’s drama, which played out from on easons 3 to 5 of Real Housewives of New Jersey.
“As you have seen throughout the past five seasons, there have been A LOT of ups and downs between all of our families and our friendships,” Melissa wrote in a blog for the site, seemingly referring to her past drama with Teresa.
“No one’s hands are 100% clean, including my own,” Gorga continued of her and Giudice’s feud, “but what I have learned is that actions speak louder than words when it comes to finding peace.”
In a separate blog following the Real Housewives of New Jersey season 7 premiere back in August, Gorga also revealed that she did not have any contact with Teresa while she served almost a year behind bars last year after pleading guilty to fraud charges in 2014, but praised Giudice for being a “strong woman” upon her return.
“Before Teresa came home, I didn’t really have any contact from her, so I had no idea what was going through her mind or how she was feeling about me and our relationship,” Gorga wrote in her Bravo blog of Giudice. “I will say, she definitely is a strong woman.”
