"The Real Housewives of New Jersey" newest star Melissa Gorga and husband, Joe, talked to Life & Style magazine about their run-in with Joe's sister, Teresa Giudice, during the series premiere Monday.
"I was so upset," Melissa told Life & Style about the brawl at her son's christening. Joe, added, "My sister didn't even want to be there. She'd just signed her 'Housewives' contract that morning or the day before because she was mad that we were on the show."
Melissa, Joe and their three children live in a 15,000-square-foot custom-built mansion in Montville, N.J. -- and they hope things will smooth over once the show is done. Joe said, "I have wonderful kids, a beautiful house, the whole package-- but I don't have my family. I'm crying out for my family."
