Five hours after airing, The Real Housewives of New Jersey was SO dramatic, it is still trending on twitter. For two seasons we have watched Melissa Gorga go up against her sister-in-law Teresa Giudice. And on the Napa trip, it seemed like their family bond was as strong as we’ve seen it. Teresa recently revealed that she has no contact with ANY of her RHONJ castmates, and Melissa Gorga is talking about about everything. She recently sat down with The Huffington Post for an interview…
We’ve been watching you guys in California and it seems like the Giucides and the Gorgas were getting along quite well. Were you guys genuinely enjoying each others’ company?
Melissa: “I was. That’s pretty much how I am: If you come to me and call a truce, you know, she’s family, of course I’m going to forgive her and try to move on and just hope she puts the past behind and doesn’t do any of the hurtful things she was doing again. That’s pretty much what I did. I said, “You know what? This is Joe’s only sister. Deep down inside, as much as he gets upset with her, he loves his sister. He wants it to just be normal. He wants to be able to see his nieces.” And I know that he wants that. So I really just put two feet forward and did everything I could to make it perfect, make it right and I really, really was enjoying myself. What you’re seeing is really honest. It’s real. I was enjoying spending time with her. I don’t know how real it was for her because of what you’ll see comes later on, but for me, it was real and it was true. I just don’t know how anyone could throw a punch after that. After we got to that spot, I just see no reason to hurt anyone again or put anyone down. You’ll have to watch to see if it stays that way or not.”
In last week’s episode, there was a very controversial moment with Joe Giudice making a phone call. What did you remember what you were thinking while that was actually happening?
Melissa: “I had no idea that even happened. We watched it for the first time the way you did.”
What did you think when you saw it?
Melissa: “Oh, I teared up. I really did. I was sitting on my couch and I teared up. It was sad. No matter what issues I have with Teresa, you don’t wish that on anyone. It was very obvious that she knew exactly who he was on the phone with from the footage. It’s sad and I guess she’s in some type of denial right now, but I think eventually she’ll get her head on straight and be ready to deal with it.”
In a recent interview with The Daily Beast, Teresa said she isn’t speaking to anyone on the show. Is that true?
Melissa: “Ya. We have not been in touch.”
We are sad to hear that the family is feuding again. We can’t even IMAGINE what the Season 4 Reunion will entail. Poor Andy Cohen. I wonder how many 1 hour segments Bravo will have to make?
