Melissa Gorga believes that her sister in law Teresa Giudice spent the last ten years of her marriage to her ex-husband Joe Giudice unhappy.
“I really want her to be happy because I truly believe she hasn’t been happy in 10 years, minimum,” Melissa confessed to co-star Jackie Goldschneider on Wednesday night’s episode of the Real Housewives of New Jersey.
“I want to see who she is when she has a little bit of that happiness,” Melissa said of Tre’s then-budding romance with boyfriend Luis “Louie” Ruelas. “I am so excited for her to be happy.”
Melissa elaborated even further in her confessional interview.
“Teresa held a lot behind those walls. She was always on the defense trying to like, back up what her marriage was, what her life was,” Melissa explained. “So if she has a nice guy next to her holding her hand, making her feel good about herself, she’s gonna chill, and she’s gonna feel content and loved, and I think [she’s] gonna be such a better Teresa.”
Teresa and Joe Giudice were married for over two decades and share four daughters: Gia, 20, Gabriella, 17, Milania, 15, and Audriana, 12.
They announced their split in December 2019 and finalized their divorce in September 2020.
Despite the split, the two remain close and extremely supportive of each other.
Joe, who currently lives in the Bahamas, recently met Teresa’s new beau when he and Teresa traveled to the Bahamas earlier this month. Teresa and Luis sat down for dinner with Joe and their daughters.
“They’ve talked over the phone. Luis wanted to go to the Bahamas and meet him, which I thought was the most amazing thing ever,” Teresa said on a recent episode of WWHL. “He said he just wanted to talk to him and let him know he’s not trying to take his place or anything.”
As for Joe, he called the meeting “awkward.”
The Real Housewives of New Jersey airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
