The finale of the “Real Housewives of New Jersey” was an emotional one. Many of Teresa Giudice’s family and friends filmed tearful scenes after she was sentenced to 15 months in prison.
One noticeably missing family member was Melissa and Joey Gorga. Melissa explained in her Bravo blog that she didn’t film her reaction because it was a serious family issue that she wished to keep private.
In Melissa’s blog, she stated:
“Even though there were many positive moments this episode, there was just such a sadness around it all. As you saw, I made the decision not to share our reaction to the outcome of the sentencing. It was an extremely hard day for this family, and I believe issues this serious are meant to be private. I know I’ve asked you before, but continue to pray for their family. It’s been a season of highs and lows, but I think we all ended with a better understanding of each other and overall respect for everyone. I can’t wait to see the reunion; I lived it, but those days are never ending and it all becomes a blur!”
