Since Melissa Gorga joined The Real Housewives of New Jersey in Season 3, Jacqueline Laurita has kept her distance out of deference to her now former friend (and Melissa’s sister-in-law) Teresa Giudice.

However, now that Jacqueline and Teresa are officially done, Jac is free to spend as much time with Melissa as she’d like, and she’s getting right down to business!

Filming for Season 5 began a few weeks ago, and the Lauritas and Gorgas were spotted out enjoying a meal together on Dec. 8. “Great dinner. They just lit fireworks! @JacLaurita @chris_laurita @joegorga,” Melissa tweeted along with the above picture.

And Jacqueline agreed, later adding, “That was fun! XO! Great seeing u!” 

Do we sense a new friendship on the horizon for Season 5 of RHoNJ? It certainly seems that way!
