Was that a glimmer of hope we heard from Melissa Gorga about rekindling her relationship with sister-in-law-turned-enemy Teresa Giudice?
While discussing the volatile Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion on Watch What Happens Live, Melissa responded to a fan's question about whether her relationship with T was finished for good following the Posche fashion show incident (Strippergate!) and their hours-long reunion battle. "I don't like to speak definitively when talking about family," Melissa said, continuing: "I never want to say never because deep down in my heart I love Teresa and I know her brother loves her more than anything in the world."
Well that's promising, right? In fact, she went one step further, extending a let's-take-some-time olive branch of sorts. "Right now I just think we need a little time to heal. I do believe that time heals all wounds and I think we will fix this eventually."
Mel's fellow guest Mario Lopez then asked about her relationship with Teresa and Joe Gorga's parents, and Melissa said she and her in-laws are on good terms.
"Joe and I don't discuss the show at all ... with my in-laws ... I'm sure they know, I think they hear a lot more on that side [Teresa] ... We just want to take the time with them and be with the kids and not stress them out."
So, now that the reunion is done, declare yourself for good: Team Teresa or Team Melissa ... comment below and stay tuned next Sunday for the "lost footage" special!
Hey Melissa heres an idea on fixing the relationship, stop being a two face hypocrite and stop saying one thing to your husband and doing another. That's his sister and you should be doing everything to heal their relationship they love eachother and for their parents this crap has to stop.
I respect how much Joe loves you and defends you but sometimes he doesn't know how much your talking about his sister behind his back those are the times he should take Theresas side blood is thicker than anything. I feel sorry for Joe the most he's caught between a sister he wants closeness back and a wife he truly loves and all this is hurting the kids.
EVERYONE just GROW THE HELL UP
Teresa Giudice is obnoxious...it's so very apparent how jealous she truly is. She'll end up failing in all her endeavors in the end, trust me. Her core is not good. Money is the root of all evil and until she "gets that", she's a lost soul. Oh yes, and dispose of Joe "Ho" Giudice.
Melissa and Joe: Best thing you can do for your family is cut the poison out and toss it out as it will infect everything in your lives otherwise. Teresa and Joe are liars and very talented ones at that. Teresa has done all in her power to ruin all of the Housewives but it blew right up in her face. Everyone now has seen that Teresa is NUTS. Melissa and Joe time to turn and run away from the drama of Teresa and Joe.
These guys are family and you don't run you do everything you can to make peace at least for Joe and Theresa parents and the kids sake.
You are right; USUALLY you do make every effort to make peace and build your family up to be strong UNLESS your family members are TOXIC like Teresa and Joe and have a negative affect on your children and marriage. In that case, your first responsibility is to your nuclear family, and you cut them out like the malignant tumor that they are.
Melissa is the most dishonest person alive.... she is happy to cut Teresa out of her life and continues to hurt her husbands family (even attacking his nieces in the press!). Truly a shame!
thank god someone else sees it I've been saying it for 2 years she's such a hypocrite
Melissa said they just need some time to "heal". what a year isn't enough? she will say anything to look good, but she is a backstabber and very vicious towards Theresa. Did anyone watch the first show that Melissa and Kathy were on. From the get go they wanted to hurt Theresa. and shame on Caroline. shame, shame. Then she says she watched Celebrity Apprentice with theresa. Come on! she should be a friend to Theresa but too late now. for all of them.
Heckyl & Jyde lol, it's so sad that none of the past comments she's made on tv, on her blog etc and her cookbook she can't take ownership for. Keep your head up, don't drink the negative wine she pours. The reunion part three was pretty clear, she will never, ever admit to any of the mean things she's done and said. So sorry you and your husband have to go through that. Sad, she really thinks you are to blame.
The one consistent about Melissa is her lies and how she attempts to manipulate the viewers and those around her. Only a fool doesn't see through her.
Whatta ya talkin about? Teresa is the saddest case of how jealousy can eat a human sole alive! I think Melissa has taken the high road over and over and therefore, she fades into the background. Whereas, Teresa HAS to be in the limelight thus all of the ridiculous lies and skirting of questions. Don't worry Melissa, God knows the truth!
How flipping bizarre is it that Melissa can stomp her feet & demand apologies, however when Teresa brings up that Melissa was talking to Danielle, everyone ignores it. Nobody will even discuss it. They just brush it off. That's what started all of this. Melissa came on RHONJ for blood. TEAM TERESA
Melissa thought she would be this breakout STAR and overshadow Teresa. She tried for 2 seasons to make Teresa look bad and still Teresa is the STAR of the show!
You're right! Tre's supposed to be sooo jealous of Melissa. I've read she's younger, more beautiful, has a better marriage and a nicer home but even with all that - Mel still isn't the Star. She will always and forever lurk in Tre's shadow.
She may be the star of the show, but her real life is that of a loser. Teresa would kill to have Melissa's marriage, her sons, her money, and her beauty and figure. It is SO obvious. In fact, in the first seasons, Teresa described her marriage in a way I never saw displayed. When Melissa and Joe came on the show it hit me; she was describing their marriage, the marriage she wishes she had in which her husband adored and cherished her and could not keep his hands off of her. If she was not so poisonous, I would feel sorry for her.
IzzyGarrett Teresa is the star of the show like Corella Deville is the star of 101 Dalmations.
Theresa's Joe is a slimball, sleezy low life, just looking at him makes my skin crawl and he is a huge liar, you can see it in his eyes, face & body language...I'm with Jaci...jail time bozo! Hope to hell that Kim D is Not asked to becaome a regular, loved Carolyn's closing statement, Kathy looks mighty fine, Rosie is a hoot and I wish her all the best, but please tone down your anger, T& J are not worth a heart attack
When does season 5 start filming? Anyone know???
Melissa! You look sensational and I was proud of you for remaning "detached" with all the crazy crap you're sisiter in law was flinging around...when you finally let loose I was cheering for you
Almost flipped out myself when Theresa mocked your singing by thinking the song was written about HER! What planet is she from?
and aren't they all isn't that why Melissa wanted to join the show for fame and now its music please whos the one fame seeking.
Teresa is insane and everyone who is "TEAM TERESA" is just as crazy as her if you can't see it.
How long did Melissa and Phylis from NJ (aka. Jac. Laurita) rehearse that answer? Jac and Mel still trying to prove it was a set-up and Mels the victim. It just goes to show how desperate they both are. Phylis (ahem Jac) please stop - anyone listening could tell it was you.
Team Melissa... She owns what she says and does, plus she wears her heart on her sleeve. I believe she does want to fix things, as to Teresa keeps contradicting everything she says. I hope they fix things because all that fighting is ugly, but Teresa needs to help herself first and get a reality check. Like her brother said, she needs to stop and start to own things. Not say I'm sorry, then justifies her behavior, while continuing the ugliness.
RHONJ428what the hell are you talking about she says one thing and does another and lies to Joe all the time telling him things that aren't true she needs to leave brother and sister alone to get back as close as they used to be. Melissas husband will do anything for her it's now time for her to do something great for him.
Did this witch just say she doesnt want to speak about Teresa. She is running to the press every week
I'm for Melissa because she seemed to be the only one at the fashion show that didn't know something was going to happen. Jacqueline, Lauren and Caroline all kept quiet while they tried to figure out what was going on and Theresa definitely was in on it from the start. Theresa is so buried in lies and trying to cover up for her husband's behavior that she can't even decipher what is truth and what is not. She needs to get Joe out of her life and repair things with her brother. Maybe she is hoping Joe will be carted off to jail for awhile so she can relax and get back to the Theresa everyone liked in Season 1. If she doesn't make some changes to her life soon she will be a very lonely, unhappy lady. Part of her problem is she lacks intelligence and can't figure things out for herself - finances, Joe's philandering etc. Why was the focus on the "C" word that Joe used on the phone and not on the fact that he was clearly talking to a woman? He asked her what she was doing and then groaned and said "don't even tell me that". He even referred to "her" when he was talking about the phone call on last week's reunion. He slipped up and nobody called him on it. He is a rude, obnoxious, disgusting cheat and he makes my skin crawl everytime he's on the show.
Gotta give it to Teresa. Melissa plays with the truth too much. Do they have dinner every week with the old Gorgas like she said on WWHL or did Tre take the parents away from Joe? She contacted Danielle to set up Tre by her own admission. If anyone is out to separate Joe from the family it is her. Also on WWHL earlier this season she said her house was up for sale because her husband is a flipper - that's his job. 1st it was her dream house, then it was always meant to be a flip, and now she is moving because she doesn't want to live near Teresa. And the way she blamed the Guidice girls for future acts of bullying against Antonia is really disgusting. She ruined another Gorga generation's realtionships.
why can't her husband see what shes up to we all get it and he sees her alot more than we do, they say love is blind but come on
Probably because he knows his sister, knows her jealous and vicious nature, knows and sees much more than any of the viewers do and he is right and you are wrong.
TEAM TERESA !!!! this was a set up ! jacqueline was mad at teresa so she told kim d to set up teresa . this was all done so melissa could get her husband away from teresa. poor teresa . all the housewives want her life !! another thing i have to say is poor kathy . no one lets her talk in the reunion lol she is such a waste of a housewife ! i hope she does not come back next season .
TEAM Theresa all the way!!!!!!!!!
Not against Melissa as much as I am against Jacqueline and Kathy.......most boring twosome in the whole show. Even Caroline has more going for her than those two!!!!!
Ditto. Jacqueline's proven that she is actually very viscious. Kathy wants to see Teresa knocked down. They are all jealous women. Caroline is a failure at everything she tries.
Come on; Jac is far from vicious, she is a sweetheart. I agree that her texts were not nice, but what you saw was someone who was already going through a tough time with her child and discovered that her best friend, who she dearly loved, was an evil, self-centered, devious, envious liar. I would imagine she felt like Jeffery Dahmer's best friend when he or she discovered that their best friend was a monster; sounds like a strange comparison, I know, but both Jeff and Teresa eat and destroy others; one literally, the other psychologically. And you at least have to give Jac the fact that she does what she does in the open and owns it; the only thing Teresa owns are the superficial items she purchases on one of her shopping binges.
I believe every housewive has blame... All 5 have lied and Theresa is just a great scape goat..they all have blame....
How did they all lie and how are they all to blame, but Teresa? She was in on this and Kim D told Jac at the fashion show. If you listen, Melissa, Jac and Caroline say the minute Jac found out she texted Melissa and Caroline to tell them someting was going down.
Jacqueline knew something was coming down, Caroline knew something was coming down, Teresa knew something was coming down, but only Tre is evil? Team Tre
Just2BeMeThey didn't know until the fashion show and after Angelo confronted Melissa. Go back and listen to Kim D. and TEAM MELISSA!!
mrmb That's not what she said. She said she speaks to jacqueline every day for at least an hour and a half and that she knew she was annoyed with Melissa and that she was the target of the evening. She just didn't know details. Jacqueline knew before the event. It seems as though jacqueline and Teresa was armed with the same knowledge, yet neither tried to warn Melissa. The only innocent party in this whole thing was boring Kathy. She was oblivious to everything but that salad.
Just because Kim and Jac talk to each other doesn't mean Kim told her. Kim was upset because Melissa promoted another store...how childish is it. Team Melissa!
That is not exactly what she said. She said Jac knew that she was mad at Melissa, she talked to her every day for an hour but not that she knew before the event that she was out to get Melissa at the fashion show. Also, it sounds like what she said at the reunion is different from what she said off camera after the event, which Caroline called her out on but did not push. They all seem to be afraid of Kim D; Jac even said on WWHL that Kim D is a dangerous person to have angry at you -- maybe the "big boys" that Kim D plays with? I am not really going to believe anything Kim D says, anyway. Even if she said Teresa knew about the whole thing from minute one, I would not use that as any evidence. Not only is Kim a total liar, she has her head up Teresa's butt so far that she can taste the toothpaste Teresa uses, I think because Teresa is the one willing to film with her and Kim obviously wants the air time. If I have to watch more of her than I can ff through comfortably next season, I won't be watching, even though I love this big, Italian group (except the Guidices). Kim D e porco cane!!!!!
