If you’ve been keeping up with the the happenings among the cast of the Real Housewives of New Jersey since the Season 3 reunion episode, you know this story falls into the “I’ll believe it when I see it”category.
Why? Because Melissa Gorga enlists her super snarky sisters to do much of her dirty work. However, with Teresa Giudice as the clear breakout star of the series, no matter what you think of her, Melissa may be putting this out to make her own star shine brighter.
Season 4 completed filming in October, 2011, and we know that the other women, led by Caroline Manzo, treated Teresa so badly during filming that she turned to old friend Dina Manzo, who has managed to stay above the fray, in tears.
In an attempt to garner some publicity and make herself look good, Melissa told Hollywood Life :
“I’m actually going to [Teresa's daughters] Gia and Milania’s birthday party on Saturday [Jan. 28],” Melissa told us Jan. 24 at the NYC premiere of One for the Money. “This will be the first time that we get together [since] the reunion. She’s been with Apprentice, and I’ve been doing a lot of appearances promoting my single, so we’ve both been really busy.”
Melissa said she’s really making an effort to put the past behind her.
“I honestly have tried everything I can to mend the relationship between Teresa and her brother,” she said. “I think a lot of people were very confused and thought it was between Teresa and me, but a lot of it does stand between a brother and sister. Somehow I get caught in the middle.”
Next season, fans will get to watch Melissa and Teresa try to make up.
“On season four, you are going to see me really do everything in my power to make it better,” Melissa revealed. “I might get slapped in my face, I might not. You have to watch and see, but I can put my head on my pillow at night.”
Melissa will even be watching Teresa compete on Celebrity Apprentice!
“Of course I’m going to watch her,” she assured us. “She will fight to the death.”
Now that is true, I’m sure Teresa will make this season of Celebrity Apprentice must see TV.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey will return to Bravo TV in the spring. Celebrity Apprentice airs February 12 on NBC.
