Melissa Gorga has remained pretty quiet about her sister-in-law, Teresa Giudice, and her husband Joe’s recent legal troubles. After they were each sentenced to prison on Thursday — she received 15 months, he got 41 months — I kept expecting to hear something from Melissa regarding the entire situation.
But all we had heard out of her was a response to a fan’s tweet about being glad that the drama being documented for the Real Housewives of New Jersey and for the world, was not actually about drama between the families.
“I’m so glad @melissagorga & @joegorga are able to sit back, relax & watch someone else’s family drama for a change,” the fan wrote, to which she replied, “Lol.. For once! XO”
But now, Melissa has broken her silence.

“Obviously this has been a very tough week. We are heartbroken for our family and especially those four sweet girls. Pray for them. No matter how you feel, I hope everyone is wishing their family strength and faith.”
Well said Melissa. The upcoming 4-5 years is going to be hard for Teresa and Joe Giudice as well as their four young daughters. But at least the judge was kind enough to stagger their sentences allowing one of the parents to remain home with the girls while the other one serves their time.
I know that the Giudice’s drama has been dominating the headlines over the last few days, but how does Melissa feel about the drama happening as the Real Housewives of New Jersey continued their Florida vacation with Hurricane Jim on Scary Island Part 2?
“I’m not going to touch on the rumor, because it is so outlandish and ridiculous it doesn’t even deserve another mention. Let me just say again that I feel for TeRESa and Rino. It sucks when friends of friends come on and drop bombs. There is no excuse for it and it just gets old. But they were strong, came to dinner, and laughed at it. Kudos to them!”
TELL US! DO YOU THINK TERESA WILL LEAN ON JOE AND MELISSA GORGA FOR SUPPORT?
