Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga have had a rocky relationship to put it mildly and fans have seen their cantankerous relationship play out on RHONJ. On Teresa’s first post-prison appearance on WWHL, she sets the record straight on why Melissa wasn’t allowed to visit her in prison and how their relationship is today.
As for why Melissa wasn’t approved to visit Teresa in jail, Teresa says “By the time she sent it in, it was like three months later, and my list was full at the time. I took my brother-in-law Pete off the list to add my brother.”
However, Teresa admits that she had personal reasons for not adding Melissa. “When I left, obviously, things weren’t the greatest between Melissa and I. Me and my brother were laughing about it, it was a scene that we already filmed [for the upcoming seventh season of RHONJ], and I said to him, ‘I really didn’t want to spend five hours sitting with Melissa and chatting with her in the visiting room,’ and we laughed about it.”
Despite her and Melissa’s past issues, Teresa is thankful for Melissa helping Joe take care of the girls while she was in prison. “Oh, of course. Listen, to me, family means the world to me. I love my brother. I love Melissa. I love my nieces and nephews. I want them in my life.”
It’s great to hear that Teresa and Melissa are finally in a good place. On social media, it seems like the two are truly enjoying each other’s company these days and not just pretending for the cameras.
Are you surprised Teresa and Melissa are on such good terms? Do you think it will last? What do you think turned Melissa and Teresa’s relationship around?
