Melissa Gorga’s feud with Teresa Giudice has been going on for years and while viewers of Real Housewives of New Jersey appreciate the drama, what they may not realize is the damage it has caused within their family. While they both have their own side of the story, Melissa is now telling hers.
Not only does Teresa bash Melissa on television and in interviews, but according to Melissa, she’s also doing it to her parents who are also Melissa’s in-laws. “Everytime they’re together, she [Teresa] tells them this laundry list of terrible things about us,” Melissa explains. “They’re more distant with us now. Joe feels like she’s poisoned their brains.”
As much as it hurts Melissa to have lost a relationship with her in-laws, she realizes that Teresa’s relationship may be more important — especially after losing several of her close friends. “Teresa needs them, so they’re standing by her,” Melissa adds.
Melissa Gorga has a good point. Teresa lost two friends and two family members on the show so she needs the support of her parents. Melissa, on the other hand, has plenty of close friends and is extremely close with her sisters.
For more of these two, tune in to the Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion this Sunday night at 10/9c.
