“Teresa and I are in a good spot and we want to remain that way,” Melissa wrote on her Bravo blog recently after the Real Housewives of New Jersey arch-enemies almost came to blows on the last season of the show.
“Would love for the fans and other people in our lives to see that and stay positive for us. I’m proud of our family.
“We have managed to move past the issues that were hurting us so much and are still working hard to never go back to that negative place again.”
A source close to both Housewives told RadarOnline.com that they’re working hard to not fight.
“Melissa is over the bickering,” one insider said, adding Teresa — currently facing federal charges of bank and bankruptcy fraud — feels the same way.
“She’s really trying with Melissa.”
The one indictment: Teresa’s interview on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen when she said that if she and her own hubby, Joe Giudice, go to jail at the same time the Gorgas will not be taking care of their four daughters.
“Teresa has spent so much time fighting with Melissa that it is going to be hard for her to stop,” the source said.
“She has so much animosity toward her and all of the lies that she felt like she told that she isn’t going to let things go.”
While the cameras aren’t following them, just yet, the two families have been working to repair their relationship.
But our insider warned that the peace probably isn’t going to last.
They said: “Teresa won’t have a story line if she isn’t fighting with someone and as soon as the taping starts the gloves will probably come off.”
