Melissa tells Life & Style Teresa’s prison term (along with husband Joe Giudice’s) had a lot to do with it. “I just decided to let things go, and I think she feels the same,” Melissa says.
“There are bigger issues in the world,” she adds. “We realized that if we can’t get a handle on our relationship, that’s pretty sad.”
“There definitely has been a crisis going on, and family bands together during a crisis,” explains Melissa, who has been spending a lot of time with Teresa and her four daughters, Gia, 15, Gabriella, 11, Milania, 10, and Audriana, 6. “We are true family people at our roots.”
Melissa and Teresa realized that, as stars of a reality show that thrives on feuds and broken alliances, there were “people pushing us not to get along,” Melissa reveals to Life & Style. “Our relationship has been through a lot,” she adds. “We just decided to no longer let other people sway the way we think.”
“Whatever Teresa needs, we’re just there for her right now. She knows it,” shares Melissa. “We love each other.”
