“We honestly haven’t spent Thanksgiving together. We try to do Easter and Christmas with them. Joe and I usually go away for Thanksgiving or spend it with my family. We went to Jamaica last year, too.”
Should the Gorga’s have spent Thanksgiving with the Giudice’s considering the circumstances?
Melissa Gorga explained that she and her husband Joe usually go away for Thanksgiving or spend it with her own family. They have not traditionally spent Thanksgiving together with the Giudice’s, and they try to prioritize spending Easter and Christmas with them instead. Last year, they even went on a vacation to Jamaica for Thanksgiving.
Teresa Giudice, Melissa’s sister-in-law, is currently facing several counts of fraud along with her husband Joe Giudice. These legal issues might have created a challenging and stressful environment for the Giudice family. Considering the circumstances, it is understandable that Melissa and Joe Gorga chose to spend Thanksgiving separately.
The decision of whether the Gorga’s should have spent Thanksgiving with the Giudice’s is subjective and depends on individual perspectives. Given the legal challenges faced by the Giudice’s and the Gorga’s traditional holiday plans, it is reasonable for Melissa and Joe Gorga to have chosen a family vacation or spending time with Melissa’s own family. Ultimately, the decision was based on their personal preferences and circumstances.
