Teresa Giudice’s eldest daughter Gia hasn’t cut her Uncle Joe Gorga or Aunt Melissa Gorga despite the couple’s ongoing feud with her mother.
The 21-year-old told Page Six exclusively at BravoCon 2022 that while she was closer to Joe, who is her godfather, and Melissa, they’re still on good terms — kinda.
“We don’t really talk that much now, but that’s okay. I’m sure we’ll move on one way or another,” she shared on Friday.
“I texted my uncle to [his] birthday just out of respect – and for the holidays. He replied by text as “Thank you”.
Gia added that she doesn’t want the family drama, which began shortly before Teresa’s wedding to Luis “Louie” Ruelas in August, to come between her and the Gorgas’ three children.
“Honestly, what I want the most is that whatever happens between them doesn’t affect me and my cousins,” she told Us. “[What happens] between my mother and my uncle, it’s between them. My cousins and I are good. We are still talking here and there. Was good.”
Teresa and her ex-husband, Joe Giudice, have four daughters: Gia, Gabriella, 18, Milania, 16, and Audriana, 13. Melissa and Joe, meanwhile, share daughter Antonia, 17, and sons Gino, 15, and Joey, 12.
Gia, who stunned in a silver mini dress with MONTSERRAT New York jewelry, also teased that she’s “definitely” a big part of the upcoming 13th season of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” which wrapped up the filming earlier this year amid the Giudice-Gorgas estrangement.
“I kind of stayed behind the scenes of what was going on between my mom and my uncle,” she told Page Six. “It’s about [seeing] on our side on a more personal level, and I think that’s really what the fans are going to see.
We also spoke with Joe, 48, at BravoCon on Friday, where he confirmed there was “no animosity” between him and his nieces.
“We text. And listen, my nieces are my nieces. I love them and there is no animosity towards them. If they choose to let me into their life, I’m there. I’ve watched them all since babies and I love them. There are no hard feelings,” he explained.
As for the conflict with Teresa, which began over rumors that Melissa cheated on her husband with actor Nick Barrotta, Joe said it was “ruining his life.”
“At this point, I don’t know what else to say. I’m tired,” he told us.
“I’m tired of talking about this for 13 years. I’m 48, and I’m glad I woke up this morning and happy to have healthy kids, a beautiful wife, a beautiful life, and I just want to be happy, man.
Joe further addressed his years-long beef with Teresa, 50, on stage at the New York convention on Saturday when a fan asked if his sister wasn’t supporting him and Melissa, 43, joining “RHONJ” in 2011.
“It’s the shit that pisses me off,” he shouted in the middle of a panel moderated by Page Six’s Evan Real.
“F–k that. We’re family.
