The Real Housewives of New Jersey is all about family, yet Melissa Gorga's clan seems to stay out of the spotlight. But for those who don't know, Melissa doesn't have just one sister-in-law, Teresa Giudice; she also has two real sisters of her own.

Melissa recently took to Instagram to send her sissies a shout-out for always being there for her.

"My sisters.. @kimpirrella & @lysasimpson always supporting me too :-)," Melissa wrote next to the family photo.

Both Kim Pirella and Lysa Simpson are older than Melissa, although looking at this picture, one might think they're triplets! All three share the soft-wave, shiny hair genes, as well as the signature Marco high-forehead.

The pretty sisters obviously have similar fashion sense, too. All three are rocking loose blouses paired with black jeggins and knee-high boots. Either they planned the matching outfits, or they know what works for them and are sticking with it!

Earlier this summer, The Blind Item reported that Melissa was trying to get Lysa and Kim added to the Real Housewives of New Jersey roster, but that Bravo felt they were too "ugly and negative" to be considered for the show. If true, that is seriously harsh!

We have to disagree with half of that statement — the Marco sisters are definitely attractive.

As for the negativity accusations, we'd have to get to know them a little better to make that judgment call, but it looks like that won't be happening anytime soon. If there was ever a time for Bravo to add Melissa's sisters into the RHoNJ mix, it would be now, while the show is undergoing a cast shakeup. But the reported three new spots on the show for Season 6 seem to have gone to to twinsies Nicole and Teresa Napolitano and their friend, Amber Marchese, instead.

Sorry, ladies!
