Melissa Gorga

Melissa Gorga appeared on Good Day New York to promote her new jewelry collection. Melissa also answered questions about Teresa Giudice and Real Housewives of New Jersey. She actually spent a lot more time talking about Teresa than her jewelry, but such is life as the sister-in-law of a convicted felon.

Melissa admitted that she hasn’t visited Teresa in prison, adding, “I think she’s keeping her visits for her children.” I honestly don’t blame her. I wouldn’t visit the narcissist, either, family or not. Melissa went on to say that Teresa’s holding up “really well” despite being away from her girls. “It is obviously not easy being away from the children,” said Melissa. “I think that’s probably the hardest part.”

Melissa said that Teresa phones and emails Joe Gorga. “There’s a limited amount of free time, so when she does [reach out], I expect her to go through her brother,” she added. “She’s always on the phone with her mother and her children.” Melissa said she’s seen Gia, Gabriella, Milania, and Audriana, but when she offered her help, MIL told her they have it under control.  

When asked if Teresa keeps up with Real Housewives of New Jersey news, Melissa said, “I don’t think she’s out of touch completely. She does have a lot of fans sending her clippings and things like that. She’s not out of touch. They can email.” Of course Teresa keeps up. Even now, sitting in prison because of her greed, there’s no doubt in my mind that fame and fortune rank very high on Teresa’s list of priorities.

Melissa slammed the tabloids for writing that Joe Giudice cheated on Teresa while she’s in prison. “I think the tabloids are going to write what they write. They have no facts ever,” she bemoaned. “It is what it is and it comes with the territory. They’ve been fighting those rumors for a long time.”

About Real Housewives of New Jersey season 7, Melissa admitted, “We’re not confirmed for it yet. We don’t have definite film dates. It’s all up in the air. There is nothing set in stone. They’re casting now. They’re finding new people, but there are no definites.”

The Melissa Gorga Collection debuts Thursday on HSN. Melissa will host the sale at 3 AM, 4 AM, and 5 AM, so be sure to set your alarm clock. 😉
