And in return, you’ll be treated like a queen… In Love Italian Style, Melissa shares her (and his) secrets to relationship success, generations-tested old-fashioned values served up with a modern, sexy twist.”

Well, four years later, Melissa feels differently than she did at the time. The Real Housewives of New Jersey mom and ‘Wife has definitely expanded her brand, which includes her New Jersey boutique Envy, and she’s altered her views along the way.

News. “It’s not easy, it’s really not easy …I feel like I’m just growing as a person and I think you’re going to see that on the show because I can’t even hide it.”

Which brings us to that 2014 book release and the ideas she was sharing with her fans at the time. She noted to E! News, “I don’t believe in that like I used to. I wrote a whole book about it and I don’t know if I agree with everything I wrote any longer.”

Melissa Gorga Discusses Tension With Teresa On Real Housewives Of New Jersey Season 9

After years of feuding on Real Housewives of New Jersey, sisters-in-law Melissa Gorga and Teresa Giudice finally reached a genuine truce during Season 7. For the most part- excluding a seemingly staged an argument at their old restaurant– the two of them got along during Season 8 as well.

Then out of nowhere the trailer for RHONJ Season 9 was released and the viewers were shocked to see Melissa and Teresa yelling at each other from opposite sides of the table surrounded by their costars. Did they regress after two seasons of progress? Or was that just a spat between two people who spend a lot of time together? They are costars, relatives, and friends. That is a lot of time hanging out with the same person. Who isn’t going to disagree with that much interaction? Then again, most people don’t scream at each other in a public place, but this is why Real Housewives of New Jersey is so great.

In an interview with E! News, Melissa cleared up the speculation about a major rift between the two of them. She clarified, “No, we’re not going to have knock-down, drag-out fights, but Teresa and I do fight this season. We do get into a couple arguments. It’s sisters-in-law, we are family.” But what are these arguments about?

Melissa hinted that the addition of Jennifer Aydin and Jackie Goldschneider could have something to do with their tension. She shared, “There are two new girls who are, like, amazing. It’s so hard to cast new people on Jersey. We are family, it’s very hard to fit in with us…to bring other people in has always been difficult and I think we found it…These two girls are so polar opposite, it’s insane.”

Melissa added, “One is a little bit like Teresa and I feel like one’s a little bit like me, so it’s just funny and it works.” Just take one look at social media and it’s clear that Teresa gets along with Jennifer while Melissa is close with Jackie.

The New Jersey Housewives have been relatively tight-lipped about the Season 9 storylines, but soon enough we will all be in the know about what (or who) got Melissa and Teresa so riled up in that trailer.

Tonight is the premiere of The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Meet us back here in the comments so we can snark our way through it!
