The Real Housewives of New Jersey shed light on their delicate relationship.

on May 31, 2013 - The Dish


A fragile peace treaty may have been brokered between sisters-in-law Melissa Gorga and Teresa Giudice, but don’t expect the two of them to become BFFs anytime soon.

“The trust isn’t there,” Melissa told Life & Style. "The trust needs to be built.”

Perhaps Melissa is feeling a wee bit untrustworthy after seeing the trailer for the upcoming fifth season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey. In it Teresa’s daughter Milania, 7, talks about “going on the pole” like her aunt Melissa.

Teresa insists that her kids have not heard any stripper comments in the Giudice home.

“Do I say anything negative about Melissa or my brother in front of my children?,” she said to the mag. “No, that does not happen.”

Teresa also claims that her involvement in the rumors circulating that Melissa was having an affair came from a good place. “I was just trying to warn [Melissa], before she came on the show, that I was hearing these rumors about her,” she explains.

Teresa is also hesitant about the family reunion admitting that it will take, “a lot of time, a lot of hard work,” for the fractured family to be healed.


Watch what happens between these two families on The Real Housewives of New Jersey season premiere this Sunday at 8/7c, followed by new series Princesses: Long Island.
