Season 7 of the Real Housewives of New Jersey had some crazy, friendship changing moments, so it’s not surprising that the Housewives needed to agree to a cease-fire after the reunion to end the drama once and for all.
In her Bravo blog, Melissa Gorga discusses her thoughts on the reunion and gives further insight into the peace pact the Jersey Housewives made.
See what Melissa had to say below!
Another season comes to an end. Thank you so much for always supporting our family and the show. The reunions are super frustrating for me. All we want to do is explain how we are feeling and tell our side of the story, but that doesn’t get to happen when everyone talks over each other.
Joe didn’t say too much at the reunion, but the few words he did say hit home for me. It’s true, it hurts your heart when it’s family. When you fight with family it affects so many other people, not just who you are in the argument with. I’m not saying I don’t get disappointed or upset when I argue with my friends, but there is a difference.
I agreed to forgive and move forward with Teresa. When I did that, it wasn’t only for me, it was for my husband, my children and my in-laws. It’s unfortunate that I felt a lot of pressure from others to go against that promise, but I refuse to keep rehashing the past, and I am not going to break that promise for anyone.
At the end of the reunion, we all made a promise to move forward in peace.
I truly hope all of the ladies enjoy the holidays with their families and loved ones.
See you next year!
I’m so proud of Melissa for not taking the bait and falling for Jacqueline’s attempts to mess up her and Teresa’s relationship. It’s great to see the Gorga’s and Giudice’s stand together regardless of all the drama from the past – they are moving on from the past and not letting it affect the present and future.
