Teresa Giudice addressed her months-long estrangement from brother Joe Gorga and sister-in-law Melissa Gorga during an appearance on Friday.

Before revealing the best part of her marriage to Luis Ruelas, reacting to Kelly Ripa‘s impersonation of her wedding look, and sharing parenting tips for Rihanna, Teresa explained why it’s so hard to move forward from their family feud and teased the upcoming 13th season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey.

“I’m really big on loyalty and respect, and I feel like when you cross that line, it’s hard to come back from that, especially when it’s done on national TV,” Teresa explained on the November 18 episode of E! News. “I have friends that would never do some of the stuff that my family’s done to me. When it’s family, it just hurts deeper. It’s painful.”

Although Teresa suffered a falling out with Joe and Melissa earlier this year, ahead of her August 6 wedding with Luis, she now has two new sisters-in-law, who she gets along great with.

“Veronica officiated our wedding, so I can’t wait for you guys to see her at the wedding special and she was a little bit also on [RHONJ], and Jennifer is my other sister-in-law. She’s a little bit more shy but I love them dearly both,” Teresa stated. “I don’t have my parents anymore, and they’re so great to me.”

Following a reportedly heated altercation with the Gorgas during filming on the season 13 finale, Teresa admitted the upcoming episodes were “hard” to film.

“It was a very hard season for me,” she admitted. “When you watch this season, I think it’s gonna say it all.”

Teresa may not have had a great time filming RHONJ‘s upcoming season, but she’s excited for fans to see her wedding special.

“I always like to be unique and different out of the box,” Teresa said of her big day. “Luis was into it with me, and that’s what I love because my first wedding, [Joe Giudice] was so not into it. We picked everything together, so that was the fun part.”

Months into her marriage, Teresa said the best thing about being married to Luis is “waking up with him every morning, spending every day with him… and just [cuddling], and of course other things, too.”

“I just love his energy. We both rub off on each other. His ex-wfe said the same thing, that we’re so much alike, and even my children say that,” she added.

Also, during the interview, after saying that Kelly “looked so good” and “like she could be [her] sister” when she impersonated her wedding look on Live! With Kelly and Ryan, Teresa offered some advice to Rihanna, who previously said she wants to be the kind of mother Teresa is to her four daughters.

“You’re an amazing mom already,” Teresa told the singer. “It just comes so natural and easy. Just keep doing what you’re doing and just adore your baby every day. Take lots of pictures. Love love love you, and my first dance for Dancing With the Stars, I made sure I picked a Rihanna song.”

The Real Housewives of New Jersey season 13 is expected to premiere on Bravo sometime in early 2023.
