The last Real Housewives of New Jersey season felt like we stepped back in time. After finally making amends, sisters-in-law Melissa Gorga and Teresa Giudice had tension all season long. They even went at it during the reunion, just like old times! Caught in the middle was Melissa’s husband and Teresa’s brother Joe Gorga. All he wants is for the two women in his life to get along.
Will that ever actually happen though? Drama with Teresa and Melissa almost always results in drama between Teresa and her brother, or vice versa depending on whose version of the story you buy. So what’s going on with the trio these days? How are they handling Joe Giudice’s impending deportation to Italy? Melissa recently opened up about the situation.
In an interview with Extra, Melissa said, “[Teresa is] doing alright. I feel like she is probably more stressed out than she has been just because there is a lot of pressure right now because [Joe Giudice] got switched over to ICE.” Even though Joe’s legal team filed for an appeal, he still doesn’t know if he has to leave the country. It’s just a waiting game at this point.
Melissa shared, “It’s actually very sad. It feels sadder than it has been the past three years. It’s getting very real right now. Everything is getting very real. I’m not gonna lie, we are probably the saddest we all have ever been right now.”
There’s at least one bright side in this very dark situation. Teresa and Joe Gorga are getting along these days. Melissa revealed, “She spends a lot of time with her brother. They are on the phone 24/7, that’s who she is leaning on, that’s the man in her life right now. She and her brother are really close right now, which is great.”
As much as Real Housewive fan love the drama, Teresa vs. Melisssa and Joe is a storyline that (almost) everyone wants to move on from. This is good news. For the family and the viewers.
