By Casey Suglia

Melissa Gorga and Teresa Giudice's relationship as sisters-in-law has been strained on and off since Melissa joined the cast of The Real Housewives of New Jersey in Season 3. But Teresa's daughters have always been close to Melissa's kids with husband, Joe Gorga.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey Sundays at 8/7c on Bravo and stream next day on Peacock.

While the feud between Melissa and Teresa has been ongoing, their kids have developed their own relationships and viewers may be wondering if the kids remain tight. Melissa appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on Sunday, May 12, where she revealed where her three kids stand with Teresa's four daughters to this day. 

Melissa Gorga reveals how often her kids "hang out" with Teresa's daughters

Melissa sat in the hot seat at the WWHL Clubhouse, where she answered some pressing questions from host Andy Cohen. Right off the bat, Andy asked her for a much-needed update on the Gorga-Giudice children: "Do the kids still keep in contact with their cousins? Please say yes."

"They text 'happy birthday' and all of that," she said, nodding her head. "They don't hang out, but they text."

Teresa mirrored Melissa's comments about their kids during an appearance on WWHL in February 2023, revealing that the cousins "text" and "communicate on social media." "That's all I know," she said. "I guess you would have to ask both of them more so."

What would it take for Melissa Gorga to hang out with Teresa Giudice again?

During her appearance on WWHL on Sunday night, Andy played a game of "Would You Rather?" asking Melissa if she would rather relive certain scenarios from her time on RHONJ or hang out with her sister-in-law, as seen in the video above.

Melissa told Andy that she would rather go through several things again, including "Strippergate". But, she said that she would hang out with Teresa again over having to relive the fight at her youngest son's christening in Season 3, Episode 1. "Oh come on, now," Melissa told Andy. "I'd rather hang with Teresa."
​​​​​​"That was my son's christening," she added. "I wish I could take that away."​​​

Melissa Gorga says her relationship with Teresa Giudice is "so over"

On this season of RHONJ, Melissa and Teresa are more strained than ever and Melissa definitely has feelings about that rift. "It's real. It finally is what it is," she said on WWHL. "The gloves are off, the masks are off — you might as well stop asking me. It's not happening's so over."


While it might be "over" now, Melissa revealed her thoughts on the WWHL After Show about where she, Teresa, and her husband might be now, if she had never joined the show in Season 3.

"I don't fully know," she admitted, telling Andy that they would probably be on "speaking terms" but not close. "Before the show, there was more than you know," she added. Although some might believe that being on RHONJ is what caused the drama between the family, Melissa was quick to shut it down. "That's what everyone thinks, this show created this," she said. "I married into [this], 'Woah. What goes on?' I was like, 'Oh, this is not how my family rolls.' You know?"
