Melissa Gorga on Ending Friendship With Teresa Giudice: No Guilt
During her appearance on Betches’ ‘Mention It All’ podcast, the ‘Real Housewives of New Jersey’ star talks about her decision to end her friendship with Teresa, who is also her sister-in-law.
AceShowbiz -There is no regret for Melissa Gorga. “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” star claims in a new interview that she has “no guilt” over her decision to end her friendship with Teresa Giudice, her “RHONJ” castmate as well as her sister-in-law.
“I truly feel like I have hit every avenue,” Melissa told Dylan Hafer in the Monday, May 16 episode of Betches’ “Mention It All” podcast. “I have no guilt.”
Instead, she feels “a little free” after she and Teresa made a pact to stop pretending they like each other during the three-part “RHONJ” season 12 reunion. The wife of Joe Gorga explained, “It’s OK to say that [Teresa and I] don’t have the best relationship and I don’t feel guilty saying that because I tried really hard and I know that I tried hard – for my in-laws and for Joe. [My in-laws] are not here anymore and now … it is sad to see [Joe] not have family.”
During the explosive reunion, Teresa told Melissa, “Honey, we’re not close,” before she called Joe a “b***h boy.” He also accused her older brother of being “too involved” in the ladies’ drama, prompting him to storm off the stage in anger.
While Teresa had apologized to Joe on social media, it didn’t serve as a big help to save their relationship. “When I went back and watched ‘Ultimate Girls Trip,’ I was watching some of the scenes they filmed Teresa and I together on the plane and we were in the car, and I remember looking at her and genuinely saying, ‘This is exciting that we get to do this together and this is something fun. We’ll have these memories that we did something fun for when we get older,’ ” Melissa recalled during her podcast appearance.
“She kind of just rolled her eyes and looked at me. Between that and watching [this] season [of ‘RHONJ’], I just feel like I tried and I’m good,” Melissa added. The “On Display” podcast host shared that she actually wanted to have a “good relationship” with Teresa, but felt defeated after realizing that the feelings were not mutual. “That was another thing I watched and thought, ‘I feel like I give up,’ ” she said.
