Although Joe Gorga and Chris Laurita tried to work through the drama that happened in Vermont with their wives in the finale of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, don’t look for Melissa and Jacqueline to be rebuilding their friendship anytime soon. During her appearance on WWHL, Melissa said she’s not ready to mend their fractured friendship.
“Yeah, no, at this point I don’t feel that way. I just kind of feel like I’m at that age, I’m at that point in my life like [where] if it’s not easy, I don’t want it and once I feel like someone digs and tries to hurt,” Melissa said. “I think Jaqueline wrote a whole entire blog about me last week, it was dedicated to Melissa Gorga, and I still can’t figure out what I’ve done to her yet. It’s just one of those things. It’s just not working and I don’t need it. I like to go out and have fun and have drinks on the weekend and I don’t want to just sit and talk about other people and talk about housewives all day and that’s what Jacqueline does.”
Then, Gorga shared whether or not she believes Siggy Flicker and Dolores Catania are intimidated by Laurita. “I think as one of Jacqueline’s friends, or used to be one, there’s a lot of pressure to stand by her side and say the right thing,” she continued. “Not direct pressure. You can almost feel the sense of you need to agree with her and if you disagree even a little bit, which I think that’s what happened with me, I disagreed on small things and it turned into a big problem. I wasn’t agreeing with everything she said. Something as little as like, ‘I think Teresa’s changing.’ ‘Well, I don’t think she’s changing.’ Well I’m like, ‘I think she is. You have to give her a chance.’ That was enough to be like, ‘Well, now I’m done and I’m going to squeal about everything you said to me.'”
