Melissa and her hubby Joe tell HollywoodLife.com that Teresa’s drama is just too ‘stressful.’ They want to ‘enjoy’ Christmas this year.
“It’s yet to be determined,” Melissa told HollywoodLife.com exclusively at the Reeve Foundation Magical Evening Gala at NYC’s Cipriani Wall Street on Nov. 30. “Sometimes when something stresses you out and when you have to think to hard about something, sometimes it’s better to stay away for a little while.”
Melissa’s husband and Teresa’s brother Joe Gorga doesn’t want to have to deal with the drama. “There’s certain things you just can’t forgive and forget,” he admitted. “It’s a holiday. You want to enjoy it. You want to be happy. You don’t want to be aggravated. Christmas is my favorite time of the year. I want to be happy.”
It sounds like Teresa is actually the one that’s continuing the family feud. “If it were up to me, we would be together every single Christmas Eve,” shares Melissa. “Our children would be opening presents together. We’d be sharing every single Christmas together.”
But the drama from RHONJ season three just hasn’t been put to rest yet. “I just really hope that we can all work this out,” confesses Melissa. “We all have such amazing opportunities here. We’re all great people. Everyone’s talented. Everyone has amazing families. We all just need to let it go and work it out. It’s the holidays and that’s it. I don’t want to say anything else. We really need to work it out.”
Unlike last year, there won’t be any cameras filming the Gorgas’ holiday celebrations. “Thank you Jesus,” Melissa says. “This year is going to be a little private, which I’m looking forward to.”
