Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga have been embroiled in a nasty feud for years on The Real Housewives of New Jersey. And its gotten even more intense with Giudice behind bars: RadarOnline.com has learned that the convicted felon has forbidden her sister-in-law from visiting her in prison!
"Melissa claims that Teresa absolutely refuses to allow her to come see her in prison," a source tells Radar. "Melissa said, 'I have asked to go see Teresa, but Teresa refuses to see me. She just refuses.'"
And unfortunately, the distance between the two families will only be played up on screen when Giudice is finally released in December.
"Teresa hates the Gorgas still," the source claimed. "She doesn't even want to see the Gorgas when she gets out afterwards."
"The only reason Teresa will see them is because she needs to film with them and they all need the money," the source said.
And Bravo is happy to exploit the tension.
"Bravo is going to start filming when Teresa gets out," the source explained. "Everything is waiting on Teresa—there aren't any contracts yet, no filming yet."
"So over the holidays, they are going to figure out a way to get those two families together," the source revealed.
"Teresa hates the Gorgas' guts, but Bravo is going to be filming. So they are going to have to fake it all." Or toss a few tables!
