Joe Gorga finally agrees to forgive and forget the everlasting family feud between him and sister, Teresa Guidice, but only under one condition: Teresa and Melissa make peace once and for all.

Teresa puts her “big girl panties on,” and sets up a meeting between her and sister-in-law Melissa Gorga to ask for forgiveness, but Melissa isn’t an easy one to forget.

Joe Gorga and Teresa Guidice finally went head on during this week’s episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey. The two met at a neutral and public location so their reunion wouldn’t turn into what the rest of their attempted reconciliations have turned into – yelling, the occasional table flipping and physical abuse.

The sibling battle began with some serious finger pointing.

“You don’t even call my kids, you have never been an Aunt,” Joe Gorga announces to Teresa. Teresa blames Melissa for her distant behavior. “She pushed me away and I got away,” Teresa says. Teresa mentioned again the housewarming card that Melissa gave her. Joe explained that Melissa only wrote “congrats on your redone house” because of a snarky comment Teresa had said before.

But finally Teresa brings up their father’s illness and says they really need to end this and move forward. Joe agrees and says, “why don’t the women step up to the plate, and keep this family together?”

Teresa follows through with his suggestion, calls Melissa and asks her to meet her at Jacqueline’s house.

Teresa seemed like was finally ready to reunite the two families. Because in all honesty, I don’t think Teresa has been the most mature player throughout this fight.

Teresa surprises me and says to Melissa “I’m really sorry about how things got,” and proceeds to tell her how family is the most important thing in her life. But instead of Melissa taking the high road and hugging it out with Teresa, she retaliates and says, “it hasn’t been about family for you… this is why I feel like it’s never going to work.”

Ouch! Teresa was definitely caught off guard with that response. Good thing Jacqueline isn’t letting them leave the house until some sort of resolution occurs.

“I’m not letting either of them out of my house until they hug it out,” Jacqueline says.

And I couldn’t agree more! This has gone on for far too long! Give up the guns Teresa and Melissa — it’s time to focus on the well-being of your families rather than your problems with each other.

In the meantime, Caroline Manzo has her first night as a radio show host — and it was amazing!

Do you think Melissa and Teresa will grow up and forgive each other? Will they ever resolve their issues? Tell me what you think!

No, I honestly don’t think this mtg at Jacqueline’s will reveal anything new-just a bunch of re-hashing on Melissa’s part regarding how she’s been wronged…. She is all about the pity me stuff and the blame game. I feel badly for Teresa with all she’s going through, even though it was self-created. Everyone makes mistakes and if Teresa’s brother isn’t there to support her, Melissa will have had a huge hand in that. I don’t trust her or care for her, her sister’s or that cousin Kathy. Teresa may not always be articulate and she’s done some things she’d probably like to take back (who hasn’t?)–but those other women are MEAN to the core!

Joe Gorja is one beautiful man, sexy, WOW! Getting back to the show, I have to wonder if this is just acting between Teresa and the sister-in-law, the sheer hatred from Melissa can’t be for real. What would possess her to despise Teresa as she supposedly does? Now that Teresa’a husband will be in prison for several years, she’ll need her brother. It’s hard to fall a sleep after all the drama.

Teresa did all she could to resolve this. Melissa has never wanted it resolved in my opinion and made it clear again in tonight’s episode. Teresa isn’t perfect, nobody is, but Melissa is a manipulative b!tch and I for one can’t stand to watch or listen to her. If her husband had half a brain he would see right through her, unfortunately he is a moron.
