Teresa Giudice and her sister-in-law, Melissa Gorga, have had a rocky relationship for years, but it seems the Real Housewives of New Jersey stars may have finally buried the hatchet.
In Touch can reveal that at an event on Feb. 18 for Milania Hair Care, the usually dueling ladies were seen acting friendly to one another, even smiling for photos together. Their cordial — and even pleasant — behavior was rather alarming, considering the two hadn’t spoken in months following last season’s explosive reunion show.
“It seemed like they had reconciled and put the past behind them,” an eyewitness at the event tells In Touch.
But that’s not all. Teresa and Melissa’s husbands, Joe Giudice and Joe Gorga, respectively, were even seen horsing around together at the event — a shocking sight considering their tumultuous history. The foursome even posed together for a photo when asked by a partygoer.
“There was a lot of laughing and joking around between the families,” the eyewitness tells In Touch. “But of course, things were not all picture perfect.”
Despite Teresa’s attempt to make amends in mid-December by congratulating Melissa on her book deal, their relationship hit an all-time low in January when the ladies got into a fight at a birthday party for Teresa’s 12-year old daughter, Gia.

“Melissa got [verbally] attacked by Teresa and her friends,” an eyewitness told In Touch about the Jan. 11 bash. “Teresa’s pal Kim D. was drunk and was the instigator, stirring the pot — as always — over petty stuff.”
Melissa and Teresa are currently filming the upcoming season of Housewives, but the hit Bravo series may be playing a different tune now that the ladies' relationship is seemingly on the mend. Whether they're actually making strides or simply putting on a show is yet to be seen, but if it's all an act, they're doing a great job fooling us.
