Is Teresa Giudice ready to bury the hatchet with her brother Joe Gorga and mend their sibling bond? Well, sort of.
On Sunday's Real Housewives of New Jersey, the mom of four daughters argued that she was "doing whatever it takes" to get her relationship with Gorga back on track after their blowout fight at Kathy Wakile's pool party, but she still wasn't willing to meet her brother halfway when he asked that they attend therapy together.
"I don't need to see a therapist!" Giudice, 40, snapped on Sunday's show after Gorga sent her a text message hoping to end their petty fights and reunite their extended families once and for all. "If he does, he should go, and he should take his wife to support him. I'm not immature, I'm not insecure -- I'm fine," she continued during a self-centered rant with pal Kim D. "I don't have a problem with him. I swear on my children."
Though Gorga was willing to give his sister the benefit of the doubt in an effort to save their family, others around her weren't as forgiving, and blamed Giudice directly for stalling any chance at a reconciliation.
"Teresa keeps saying she wants to fix the past and move forward, but you actually have to take steps to move forward," Melissa Gorga said. "If Joe doesn't hear back from her, he should just let it go."
Giudice ally Jacqueline Laurita put things more succinctly: "I think Teresa's fooling herself. She's in denial."
