Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga have been involved in a bitter feud for years on "The Real Housewives of New Jersey." And while Teresa is serving the remainder of her prison sentence in the federal prison in Danbury, Connecticut, a new report claims that the feud between the two women have gotten worse.
A source told Radar Online that Teresa refuses to allow her sister-in-law to visit her in prison. Melissa is married to Teresa's brother, Joe Gorga.
"Melissa said, 'I have asked to go see Teresa, but Teresa refuses to see me. She just refuses,'" said the source.
In the Bravo special "Teresa Checks In," Melissa also revealed that she wasn't added to Teresa's list of approved names whom she could contact via email while she's in prison.
The insider claims that Teresa still "hates" the Gorgas and that she doesn't even want to see them once she gets out of jail. Teresa will be released on Dec. 23 for home confinement and will serve the remainder of her sentence at home.
Once the reality star is out of jail, it is expected that she will be returning for the new season of "RHONJ." The source said that the only reason Teresa will see the Gorgas is "because she needs to film with them and they all need the money."
Meanwhile, another former "RHONJ" cast member has spoken about Teresa and upon watching "Teresa Checks In," Lauren Manzo said that the reality star seemed to know "what she was doing from the inside."
Speaking to Andy Cohen on "Watch What Happens Live," Lauren, whose mother Caroline famously feuded with Teresa on "RHONJ," said that she watched the special and alleged that the cookbook author turned up the drama during her phone calls to her children and her husband.
"I think she knew what to do to make everybody cry," said Lauren.
It was previously reported that Caroline will not be returning to "The Real Housewives of New Jersey," as she's currently busy with her spinoff titled "Manzo'd with Children."
