How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey on Peacock and the Bravo app.  

On October 9, Melissa took to Instagram to open up about how much progress Antonia has made in her recovery since sustaining a knee injury last year. The Envy Boutique owner revealed that the teen is officially back on the field with her cheerleading team after a long road to recovery, sharing a sweet photo from the sidelines of a recent game.

“For a minute when @antoniagorgaa tore her ACL she thought about quitting cheer all together, I kept pushing back on her and telling her that we don’t quit and she has to push through. She did!” Melissa wrote in the caption of the picture.

“I’m so proud of her for getting back out on that field! Love watching her,” she concluded, also adding a hashtag that reads “Friday night lights.”

This is only the latest heartwarming moment that Melissa has captured with Antonia on Instagram in recent weeks. In September, she commemorated National Daughters Day by posing a precious picture with the high schooler.

“My one and only,” she wrote in the caption.

Back in August, Melissa also shared a peek into Antonia’s glamorous Sweet 16 celebration, posting a photo of the birthday girl making her grand entrance into the party. "Shine bright little lady. She lived!!! Always wanted to do this for my baby girl,” she captioned the picture.
