Melissa Gorga and Teresa Giudice appeared to finally be reconciling on Sunday night’s episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, but Gorga tells Celebuzz that their relationship is still “far from perfect.”

As the ladies embarked on their on-camera road trip to Napa, the “Rockstar” singer — who is married to Giudice’s younger brother Joe – asked Giudice why she keeps fighting with everyone. Later, in a confessional interview, Gorga revealed that she and her sister-in-law had a “breakthrough moment” after she suggested that Giudice re-evaluate how she treats family members.

“In the episode, we’re really trying,” Gorga told Celebuzz at Harrah’s Pool After Dark on Friday night. “If you look me in the eyes and say, ‘Let’s be a family,’ that is all it takes. I’m easy if you apologize and mean it.”

But Gorga apparently “spoke too soon” on RHONJ — she says that, as of July 27, the family rift still hasn’t been repaired.

“Our relationship gets bumpy again, but I never throw the first punch,” Gorga said.

Without getting into any specifics of the family drama, Gorga added: “I’m not going to lie and sugarcoat it — it’s not perfect… We try. It’s family. I wish it were better.”

And she’s hoping that her wish comes true, adding that she’s “hopeful” the family will someday reconcile.

Said Gorga: “I have a beautiful life and have so much to be thankful for.”
