While Melissa and Teresa have had their fair share of personal drama over the years, nowadays most of their issues stem from drama involving their various friendships on the Real Housewives of New Jersey.
Despite all the progress Melissa and Teresa have made in their relationship Joe still finds himself caught up in the middle of it all.
“That’s my wife and my only sister, and I love them both,” Joe explains to In Touch. “I can’t pick a side so I get in between them like a referee. I try to fix things.”
When Teresa and Melissa do fight like during season 9 of RHONJ, Joe says that most of the time he’s able to get through to both of them and broker peace.
“Ninety-five percent of the time, yes. I’ll say, ‘Listen, you did this, and you did that, so you can’t say that.’ I help repair the issue.”
As for Melissa and Teresa’s season 9 drama, Joe admits they are all good these days.
“They’re actually good. Teresa called and apologized. She’s going through a lot right now, and she blew up. But they’re good,” Joe revealed.
However, things between Melissa and Teresa may not be as “good” as Joe makes them out to be. Rumor has it that Teresa found herself stuck in the middle of Melissa’s recent beef with co-star Jennifer Aydin.
According to Hollywood Life, Melissa and Jennifer got into a “massive fight” over Teresa’s ongoing friendship with Danielle Staub during the casts’ recent trip to the Hamptons.
Meanwhile, Joe also opened up about how his sister is handling her husband Joe Giudice’s possible deportation.
“It’s hard,” Joe confessed. “She’s a mess. She’s raising her four daughters by herself, so she had to be strong. She tries to keep busy.”
And while there’s still hope Joe Giudice could remain in the United States, Gorga says he doesn’t see Teresa and the girls visiting Joe often in Italy if he is deported.
“That’s tough,” Joe admits. “It’s not an hour plane ride. But I’m sure they’ll go there for vacation.”
