“Real Housewives of New Jersey” star, Melissa Gorga, appeared on “Good Day New York” this week to promote her new jewelry line, ‘The Melissa Gorga Collection,’ which debuts on HSN.com today.
During the interview, Melissa shared an update on her imprisoned sister-in-law, Teresa Giudice. Melissa expressed, Teresa is doing “very well.” She went to elaborate,
“Really well, really well. I think it’s not easy being away from the children. I think that’s the hardest part. There is a limited amount of free time. She’s always on the phone with her mother and her children.”
Melissa revealed she hasn’t visited her sister-in-law since her sentence began in January 2015, however, she says there is a good reason for it.
“I think she’s keeping her visits for her children,” she says. “She’s going to want every visit to be with her children.”
Nonetheless, that has not deterred Melissa from reaching out to Teresa.
“I’ve written her,” she says. “She calls [my husband] Joe [Gorga]. She emails with Joe. There’s limited free time so I expect her to go to her brother. But she’s always on the phone with her mother and her children.”
Melissa also divulged that she’s doing everything she can to help Joe, her mother-in-law and Joe and Teresa’s girls since Teresa’s incarceration.
“I’ve seen them,” she says. “They see my mother-in-law a lot. My mother-in-law helps out a lot. And I see my mother-in-law a lot. And I’m constantly saying, ‘What can I do? [Who] can I drive? Where can I bring them?’ But they keep saying they got it, they got it. Everybody’s good.”
