On the July 21 episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Teresa Giudice and her brother Joe Gorga finally had a breakthrough. The perpetually feuding siblings haven’t gotten along for years, but in the wake of Joe Giudice and Joe Gorga’s fistfight, things began to shift.
Immediately after the emotional argument, Joe’s wife Melissa Gorga claimed that she wanted nothing to do with her sister-in-law, telling her husband, “I never wanna look at these people again for the rest of my life.” For the most part, Joe seemed to agree, calling Teresa “evil” and dubbing her “one of my worst enemies.”
While Teresa wasn’t as vocal about her feelings for her brother post-fight (she was busy in the hot tub after all) she did make her own plea for peace, by calling in Caroline Manzo to see if she could get through to her brother. Even though Caroline was surprised to get the call, she knew she had to do whatever was necessary to try and repair this family.
However, more reinforcements arrived in the form of an actual professional, LA Shrinks star Dr. V. Dr.V seemed to get through to Teresa and Joe right away and by the end of their conversation the siblings were in tears and hugging one another.
As a viewer, it was powerful and relieving to watch, and we can’t wait to see more of this long-overdue reconciliation. Did you shed a tear while watching Teresa and Joe work through their problems? Share your feelings below!
