NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak may not be the only Real Housewives burying the hatchet lately: Teresa Giudice and sister-in-law Melissa Gorga also appear to be enjoying a spring thaw. The frequently warring Real Housewives of New Jersey stars joined fellow Garden State pals Jacqueline Laurita and Kathy Wakile (Giudice's first cousin) in NYC on Friday, March 29 for an event at Dylan's Candy Bar, where Giudice, 40, and Gorga, 34, happily posed together for photos.
Even more compelling evidence: A less official photo opp starring Giudice's daughter Milania and two of Gorga's kids, daughter Antonia and son Gino, plus a pal. "Antonia is having a sleepover with her cousin & her bestie.. Hanging in the theater #girltalk," Gorga tweeted of the cozy shot, taken in her home theater.
It's definitely a promising development for the two Bravo stars, who reunited back in January for Gia Giudice's 12th birthday party -- but appeared to exchange heated words, as pics from the event suggest. Here's hoping the truce lasts: Season four of RHONJ (which concluded last fall with a memorable three-part reunion) ended on an extremely bitter note for the pair after "Strippergate," in which Giudice plotted to humiliate her sister-in-law.
Melissa and husband Joe Gorga (Teresa's brother) even put their $3.8 million Montville Township, NJ home up for sale last year -- in part to create some distance from the Giudices.
