Melissa Gorga Shares an Update on Her “Unfortunate” Situation with Teresa Giudice

The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member shed some insight on her ongoing family feud. 

By Jenny Berg

From sprinkle-cookie spats to disagreements that are decidedly less sweet, Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga have had a strained relationship over the years. The sisters-in-law have been involved in a longtime family feud, and Melissa recently shared an update on where she stands with The Real Housewives of New Jersey OG — and sadly, it doesn't sound like they'll be sitting down for a Sunday sauce together anytime soon.

Melissa Gorga weighs in on her relationship with Teresa Giudice 

When chatting with ET, the Envy Boutique owner said of Teresa, "We don't even, like, look at each other."

"It is the new normal," she elaborated."I think it just is what it is. I always say it's unfortunate. I'll never be, like, happy about that. But we're all living, and we're happy, and sometimes things just need to take its course. Right now that's definitely how it is."

At BravoCon 2023 in November, Melissa further discussed her dynamics with Teresa. “It’s very different from last season," she admitted. "I think it’s different because there’s not a lot of communication. So, it's different and I think better, honestly." 

“We’re at a place of peace. I think everyone needs a minute, everyone needs a break and there’s just a period on it right now," Melissa said during the BravoCon “In a Jersey State of Mind: Part 1” panel.

Melissa Gorga shares an update on her friendship with Jennifer Aydin

While at BravoCon, Melissa also dished on her relationship with  Jennifer Aydin, which hasn't always been easy. 

“I feel like this is the thing with Jen and I, we always take like five steps forward and then like somehow we take like eight steps back,” she said. In the end, Melissa went on to say that she and Jennifer are in a “better” place.  

Are Melissa Gorga and Jackie Goldenschneider still friends? 

Melissa has also seen changes in her relationship with Jackie Goldschneider and Margaret Josephs, who used to be her close friends. 

As Jackie shared with Page Six at BravoCon 2023, “There was a trust that got broken [with Margaret] and I don’t know that that’s so easily repaired."

Jackie also noted that she was "not sad" about the loss of the friendship, though fans began to speculate whether if it also fractured her relationship with Melissa (who is still close friends with Margaret).

"Nothing happened with Melissa," Jackie told InTouch Weekly. "So I don’t know if Melissa just jumped on what was happening with me and Margaret and made it hers. But I have no problem with Melissa, I never had an argument with Melissa. So I’m officially saying that I have no issue with Melissa."

Where Melissa Gorga Stands with Dolores Catania

Melissa does seem to be in a good place with Dolores Catania as evidenced by a recent birthday tribute the former posted about the latter. "Happy Birthday Dolo. "Love you long time[.] To making another year of memories together! Xox," she wrote to which Dolores responded, "Thank [you] little [Melissa Gorga.] It’s been a lot of birthdays of friendship. Cheers to many more."
