Melissa Gorga recently appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen after the newest episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey aired.
The RHONJ heavily revolves around OG, Teresa Giudice, and her entire family. This includes her brother Joey Gorga, and Melissa, her sister-in-law and co-star. Teresa and Joey’s cousins Kathy Wakile and Rosie Pierri used to be on the show, as Melissa and Kathy both joined the show full-time for season 3. While Kathy and Melissa used to be close, they had a falling out after Kathy left the show. Teresa wasn’t on good terms with Melissa and Kathy when they joined the cast, however; she was able to rebuild her relationship with Melissa and Joey. Teresa made peace with Kathy and Rosie but said she didn’t want to build a deeper relationship with them at the time. It seemed that they all were getting a bit of closure and peace.
A caller wanted to know if Melissa had spoken to Kathy and Rosie lately since they have been off of the show for a few seasons. Fans have been wanting another family update since Melissa had revealed a few months back on WWHL that she doesn’t really see them or talk to them much anymore.
Melissa answered, “No, I really haven’t had much contact with them.” She added, “And would I like them to come back to the show? Is that what she said? Umm, I’m down for whatever. Whatever the boss man wants.”
On a previous episode of WWHL, Melissa said that her falling out with Kathy was because she felt Kathy was hurt that Melissa stayed on the show full-time and Kathy did not. However; Kathy has said that she knows Melissa doesn’t control casting and that she wasn’t upset with her about remaining on the RHONJ.
I was hoping they would’ve talked by now, or ran into one another in the Garden State. I hope that the family can all come together again. There were a lot of hurt feelings with this family during the show, but they say time heals all wounds. They all used to have so much fun together and it was entertaining to watch the Gorga, Giudice and Wakile clans go on trips together. I’d watch them all on the show together again, however; I don’t foresee casting to go in that direction right now. I think there is love between them all deep down. Family is family! I loved the earlier seasons of the RHONJ. I’m wishing them all the best!
Season 10 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey airs Wednesdays 8/7C p.m. on Bravo.
