When The Real Housewives of New Jersey stars Joe and Melissa Gorga took their kids to Jamaica for Thanksgiving instead of staying in New Jersey to be with family, namely Joe and Teresa Giudice, some fans wondered if that meant that Melissa and Teresa were back on bad terms. Not true. As Melissa explained to the NY Daily News for an article posted on Monday, Dec. 2, her family's absence from the Giudice's dinner table for the big holiday is nothing new.
"We honestly haven't spent Thanksgiving together. We try to do Easter and Christmas with them. Joe and I usually go away for Thanksgiving or spend it with my family. We went to Jamaica last year too," she explained.
Joe and Melissa Gorga's Thanksgiving holiday stirred up some controversy over the long weekend not only because they chose to spend it away with Joe and Teresa Giudice, who are facing time in prison on multiple counts of fraud, but also because of a seemingly-innocent photo. Melissa was criticized by some fans of The Real Housewives of New Jersey for posting a photo of her daughter Antonia in a bikini on Instagram. One person involved compared it to child porn.
Do you think the Gorgas should've spent Thanksgiving with the Giudices?
