Melissa Gorga recently celebrated her 40th birthday with her husband, Joe Gorga, and their three children. Melissa’s sister-in-law, Teresa Giudice, also wished her a Happy Birthday. Melissa and Teresa star on The Real Housewives of New Jersey and are currently filming for next season. Melissa shared photos of herself outside wearing an athleisure outfit and she wrote, “If this is 40 Bring it.” Melissa and the family celebrated with a birthday dinner at Jockey Hollow Bar & Kitchen. Melissa shared, “My best accomplishment in 40 years” with the red heart and praying hands emojis.

Teresa wished Melissa a Happy Birthday and wrote, “Happy Birthday to my beautiful sister in law @melissagorga,” Teresa, 46, captioned a photo of the pair on Thursday, March 21, via Instagram. “Hope you have a wonderful time celebrating love you! #fab&40.”
Melissa replied, “Thank you so much,” with two red heart emojis.
They have made up since the recent reunion. Things escalated between Teresa and Melissa during the season nine reunion of the RHONJ but they are all good now. Melissa told Bravo’s The Daily Dish last month, “I’m still freaking confused about it, to be honest. It definitely took me back a little bit. I was in shock over a lot of things she said because I had just seen her a couple days before and we were fine and we had dinner together. So I was very taken aback and I have to say, I was a little insulted, ’cause I feel like we’ve come so far so if you’re going to sucker punch me or side-swipe me, give me a heads-up at this point.”
Melissa’s husband Joe recently told Andy Cohen on Radio Andy that his sister “called” his wife to “apologize.” Joe said, “They’re better. Teresa knew.” Joe also told Us Weekly that his sister is “a mess” as her husband, Joe Giudice, faces a possible deportation to Italy. He explained, “It’s very, very hard. You see, she puts up a good, strong front — she has to. She has to raise her children by herself, so she has to be strong. She can’t be weak. You know, you see this tough girl on TV all the time, but she’s weak.”
Happy Birthday, Melissa! I’m glad that Melissa and Teresa are on good terms again, I knew they would make amends after the reunion. They’ll never go back to the bad place they were in when Melissa first joined the show during season three. I think Melissa and Teresa are truly in a good place now. They’re family, they care about one another. I’m glad that Joe and Melissa say they are going to be their for Teresa and her girls. I’m thinking about this family and hoping for the best for them all!
