Will Teresa and Melissa make peace on season five of ‘The Real Housewives of New Jersey’? Melissa tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that her relationship with Teresa is ‘really good.’
Teresa Giudice skipped out on Melissa Gorga’s daughter’s first communion party on May 11, while the rest of the fellow housewives from RHONJ attended, but Melissa tells HollywoodLife.com there’s no bad blood between the sisters-in-law!
Melissa Gorga & Teresa Giudice: First Communion Snub
After the church service, fellow housewives Jacqueline Laurita, Caroline Manzo, Kathy Wakile, and other party guests were on hand to celebrate at the Manzo family’s Brownstone catering hall.
Melissa told HollywoodLife.com exclusively, “It was beautiful. It was so good. She put on a show for all of us, she danced for us all. She sang for us all, we had the best night, it was such a great night. ”
Teresa’s absence ignited a fury of accusations, claiming that Teresa snubbed her sister-in-law. According to Melissa, that couldn’t be farther from the truth, though.
Melissa told us that Teresa was at her own daughter’s first communion party. She also said her relationship with Teresa is “good, really good. Better than we have been in a long time.”
Strangely, though, Gabriella and Antonia belong to the same parish, and their communions occurred on the same day. We’re just wondering why didn’t Melissa and Teresa have a joint party? Especially if all the housewives were at Melissa’s party.
Teresa Giudice & Melissa Gorga: A Confusing Exchange Of Words After Communion
Teresa released a statement in her blog on May 14, “Of course we wish we were able to go to Antonia’s just like my brother and Melissa wished they could come to Gabriella’s, but we belong to different parishes and couldn’t control the dates. What can you do?”
Melissa tweeted on May 14 and clarified, “Despite all the crazy rumors out there, Teresa and I DO belong to the same church and our children both had communions on the same day.”
Teresa then attempted to correct her statement on May 15 and wrote:
And sorry about the typo in my blog yesterday! I’m running around with my book tour and I wanted to get some of Gabriella’s First Communion pics up in a hurry and I left out the word “don’t” in my blog post. I meant to type “we DON’T belong to different parishes and couldn’t control the dates…” If we went to different churches, there was a chance the First Communions would have been on different dates, but we go to the same church, so it was the same day. Wish we could have gone to Antonia’s, but both girls looked like angels in their beautiful dresses and my parents were SO happy to be at both parties! xx
Since Melissa revealed that her party was not filmed for Bravo, we may never know the real truth behind the communion parties. But we’ll still have our eyes glued to the screens when season five premieres on June 2!
