Season 4 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey has been a busy one for Teresa Giudice. In addition to her releasing a third cookbook and her Fabellini sparkling wine, she's been trying to work out things with her brother and sister-in-law while at the same time starting new feuds with other cast members. Now she's debriefing on the events of the season as well as the aftermath of it.

One of the most surprising things considering her effort to mend fences with Melissa Gorga and her husband (Teresa's brother) Joe Gorga is current episodes, is that none of them have spoken since season 4 wrapped filming a year ago.

"[The reunion] was emotional for me because I haven't seen my brother in a year and that was the first time I saw my brother," Teresa told Andy Cohen on Sunday's Watch What Happens Live."The lies that were coming out of his mouth, and he put my father into it...it was crazy for me."

Teresa explained that seeing this week's episode was hard knowing that they are all in such a different place now.

"I also loved seeing [the girls] with Antonia and Melissa. Milania and Antonia have been best friends since the day they were born, and it hurts Milania not to get to see her cousin as much as she used to," Teresa wrote on her Bravo blog."We'll keep inviting her and our door is always open. Hopefully her mama will let us have a play date soon. We haven't filmed in a year, and coincidentally, we haven't seen Melissa and her kids in a year. Maybe if the cameras come back around, we'll see 'all-about-family' Melissa again too. Fingers crossed!"

On another note about this week's episode, Teresa talked about her relationship with Dina Manzo, and how Caroline Manzo is completely wrong in thinking that Teresa was trying to drive a wedge between the sisters.


"I have been friends with Dina for over 15 years--and I was friends with her first. She introduced me to her family. She's Audriana's godmother," Teresa explained in her blog. "I have always hoped Dina and Caroline, and Caroline and her other siblings, would get along. For Caroline to say I have anything to do with her and her family's fights is just crazy. Crazy, crazy, crazy. Dina said herself I had nothing to do with it. I don't know why Caroline can't just own up to her own problems, but I guess blaming me for everything helps her sleep at night."
