It’s no secret the two have had their differences in the past, publicly butting heads. Even Gorga’s husband, Joe Gorga, got caught up in some of the drama, and he and Giudice have said some less than kind things about each other due to the fighting.
But according to the Gorgas, now that Giudice is out of prison, their relationship is much better. At a celebration for the release of Giudice’s tell-all memoir, Turning the Tables: From Housewife to Inmate and Back Again, they explained to E! News how they’ve mended fences with Giudice since her release.
“We’re amazing and our relationship with Teresa is amazing,” Joe said. “It’s back to normal. It’s back to Grade A. You know what that means? It’s day one. It’s back to day one.”
Added Melissa, “It’s how it should be.”
That’s not all the Gorgas had to say about the Giudices. They also gushed about how Giudice’s four daughters held the family together during her time behind bars.
“They were strong. They had to be strong and they wanted to be strong for their family and for their mom and for their grandparents — for everybody,” Melissa said.
Joe added, “They definitely got stronger. They pulled together and did a lot more chores around the house.”
Melissa interrupted, “The house was so clean!”
“They definitely stepped up to the plate,” Joe continued. “They all took care of the house. They’re amazing. They really pulled together as a family.”
