Real Housewives of New Jersey Star Melissa Gorga took to Twitter Tuesday to clear up rumors about her daughter, Antonia’s First Communion, and why Teresa Giudice wasn’t in attendance. Melissa also confirms that her in-laws were there and they sat at the head table with she and Joe.
“Despite all the crazy rumors out there. Teresa and I DO belong to the same church and our children both had communions on the same day,” Melissa tweeted. “We wished we could have been at each others. It’s just the way it worked out. & No my party wasn’t filmed by bravo or had anything given. Contrary to the rumors. my inlaws sat at the head table with us and my sisters and their husbands and had a great time! We were all smiles!”
Teresa Giudice also took to her website to share details about Gabriella’s Communion.
“We wish we were able to go to Antonia’s just like my brother and Melissa wished they could come to Gabriella’s, but what can you do? My poor parents of course hussled to make it to both. I’m so glad they could. Grandparents are so important!”
“You know I love to go all out for parties, especially once-in-a-lifetime events like Audriana’s christening, but Gabriella was the focus of our day and she’s not about over-the-top stuff. She wanted something really simple with just close family and friends.”
“After the church ceremony, we went to a restaurant that was decorated with blue, green and white. I had face painters and balloon artists and tons of kids activities and Gabriella was able to be herself and run around. I even let her get her face painted while she was in her beautiful dress! But that’s how she is and I want her to be true to herself.”
“After the party when we were walking in the parking lot, she said to me, “Mama, thank you for my party. It was the best day ever!” She’s so sweet and considerate, I almost cried. I love all my girls, and I love Gabriella.”
