Melissa Gorga isn’t commenting, at least not yet, on the photos that are rocking Teresa Giudice’s world but she is commenting on the state of Teresa and Joe’s marriage.
In an interview with The Daily Mail, Melissa confirms that Joe and Teresa are still together.
Melissa doesn’t go into details but when she’s asked by The Daily Mail if Teresa and Joe are still together she tells them “Yes.”
The Real Housewives of New Jersey star then moves on to discuss Joe, who is currently serving a 41-month prison sentence. Joe is due to be released on March 14, 2019, and faces possible deportation.
“Obviously, everybody’s fighting for him to stay,” Melissa said of her brother-in-law. “I think at the end of the day it always comes down to those girls.”
“Nobody wants to see them living without their dad,” Melissa explained. “So, I think that’s why everybody’s praying and hoping – but, there is no final decision yet.”
This interview comes on the heels of Teresa being spotted in Miami with her rumored 26-year-old boy toy Blake Schreck.
Photos of Teresa and Blake getting cozy first surfaced Wednesday morning. In one photo, Blake can be seen with his hand on Teresa’s backside while in another they are holding hands.

Teresa Giudice was spotted with her rumored 26-year-old boy toy Blake Schreck in Miami. When the first set of photos broke the RHONJ star’s rep told #AllAboutTRH that Blake was simply helping Teresa to her car. But after new photos emerged it seems like Teresa and Blake’s encounter wasn't all that ”brief” after all 🤭SWIPE 👉🏻 for 📷 // Read the full story on AllAboutTRH.com //#RHONJ #teresagiudice (📸 via @usweekly)
Teresa’s rep, James J. Leonard, attempted to shut down the rumors telling AllAboutTRH, “Teresa had some wine and was wearing heels. What your seeing is a young man being a gentleman and helping her to her car. That’s what this is.“
In fact, Leonard insisted Teresa and Blake’s encounter was “brief.”
However, shortly after Mr. Leonard made his statement a new set of photos emerged. In these photos, Teresa and Blake are together in Miami the next day, contradicting Leonard’s claim that their encounter was “brief.”
Fuel was added to the fire when another batch of photos surfaced showing Teresa and Blake together on Sunday night. This time around the pair was photographed having dinner together at Chotto Matte in Miami with friends. Afterward, the group hit up the rooftop bar for drinks.

Meanwhile, rumor has it that season 10 of the Real Housewives of New Jersey is set to begin filming any day now in order to capture Joe Giudice’s release from prison. If so the Bravo cameras will be capturing a whole lot of drama.
It is also believed that Teresa will announce her plans to split from Joe during the season 9 reunion. Allegedly, Teresa tells reunion host Andy Cohen that if Joe is deported to Italy she will end their marriage.
For now, we just have to wait and see what happens.
Part 1 of the RHONJ season 9 reunion airs at 9 p.m. EST on Bravo. Join us on Twitter during the episode!
