Melissa Gorga is stuck in the middle of a bitter feud between her husband, Joe Gorga, and his sister, Teresa Giudice. On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey, Joe texted his sister, suggesting that the two go to therapy together to try and work through their differences.
“Teresa and Joe both had a point when they said it’s not typical in our tradition to go to therapy, but Joe is willing to go outside his comfort zone to try,” Melissa says in her Bravo TV blog. “He is swallowing his pride and putting his sister first. I love when he tells Rich he loves her and wants to make it work. He also says if he is doing something wrong, he wants to know and fix it. You can tell Joe is ready and willing to try anything at this point.”
Joe sure took the first step in the right direction. However, the text wasn’t well received. Teresa, as she always does, felt victimized by it saying, “I don’t need therapy.” She seems to be missing the point. She also, once again, took aim at their marriage suggesting that Joe and Melissa need to be in therapy — not her and Joe.
“When I hear Teresa bringing me into it — saying that Joe must need the therapy with his wife and that Joe wasn’t even sure he was going to marry me — I start to really wish she was talking to Jacqueline about this or a friend that wasn’t just going to agree with everything she says. This is where a real friend would come in and tell her to fight for her relationship with her brother.”
If Teresa had a friend to talk to who truly wanted what is best for her, they would help her make better decision and encourage her to do whatever it takes to make it work with her brother. Kim is not that person.
Melissa Gorga and the rest of the cast will be back next Sunday with more drama at 9/8c in Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 4.
