From Christmas sprinkle cookies to stripper accusations to Christening brawls and more, Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga have endured their fair share of drama on the Real Housewives of New Jersey.
A new report claims that the RHONJ co-stars and sisters-in-law have finally buried the hatchet for good.
For years, Melissa and Teresa’s squabbles have often taken center stage on RHONJ. During season 11, the two infamously got into a screaming match, resulting in a cheese plate flying everywhere.
However, it seems that over the past year, the two have worked on their up and down relationship. According to Star, the two looked extremely chummy on their flight home from filming The Real Housewives All-Stars in Turks and Caicos.
Now a source reveals that the two are getting along better than ever.
“They’re finally on good terms,” says the insider. “All has been forgiven.”
Apparently, there was a lot to forgive, especially in connection to Melissa and Teresa’s most recent spat. The fight stemmed from Teresa’s ex-husband Joe Giudice bashing Melissa and her husband, Joe Gorga, in the press.
But the bad blood goes back to before Melissa ever joined RHONJ. The drama first started at the RHONJ season 2 reunion when former RHONJ star Danielle Staub accused Teresa of never acknowledging the birth of her nephew Gino Gorga.
Insiders credit the recent thaw between Melissa and Teresa on major life changes, including the loss of Gorga patriarch Giacinto in March 2020.
“They’ve been through some rough times,” says the insider. “But they understand each other better now.”
This newfound peace means knowing when to give up. “It was so important to me to use logic and to explain to [Teresa] why she’s wrong,” Melissa recently said. “But I’ve learned she doesn’t get my point.”
“She used to push me more,” Melissa added before noting, “She doesn’t do that anymore.”
While there’s currently peace and calm between the Giudices and Gorgas, a source says fans shouldn’t count out future family drama.
“That’s not to say one of them won’t lose it in the future,” says the insider. “They’re still Jersey girl.”
Season 12 of the Real Housewives of New Jersey is expected to premiere on Bravo in early 2022.
