It's Teresa Giudice against the world on Bravo's three-part Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion.

"It's crazy," fellow housewife Melissa Gorga told Celebuzz. "The reunion is off the wall. Things you think would never get said, are said. The finale has nothing on the reunion."

While Gorga says that reuniting with her estranged sister-in-law for the first time in a year was "difficult," she was more concerned with her friend and castmate Jacqueline Laurita. The RHONJ star recently revealed that her three-year-old son Nicholas has autism.

What did Gorga have to say about Laurita? 

"Jacqueline is going through a tough time publicly right now," said Gorga. "A lot of people didn't know that's why she had zero tolerance level for Teresa. This petty nonsense for her was just irrelevant."

"I did see her go through a lot," the reality star continued. "I would call her, and I would hear it in her voice. I felt bad for her, that she had deal with little ridiculous things, back and forth. I felt for her. She had to get through a whole season, knowing what she knew and not wanting anyone to find out."

As for the other cast members -- Caroline Manzo and Kathy Wakile -- Gorga says that their relationship couldn't be stronger.

"We've never had problems with each other," she said. "We like each other a lot. We support each other."

Meanwhile, things with Giudice couldn't be worse. During Part 1 of the Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion special, host Andy Cohen asks if Giudice has seen the other housewives since the Posche fashion show last year, to which she replies, “No,” she hasn’t — except for Gorga at her daughter’s birthday party.

However, as Gorga previously told Celebuzz, "It wasn’t a pleasant time." While Gorga remains hopeful that they can be a family again, she also admits that she’s not ready to reconnect with her estranged sister-in-law just yet.

“I think we just need more time,” she said.


However, she does worry for Giudice, who displayed some very erratic behavior at the reunion.

“I think we all have a little concern for her,” she said. “Obviously, the behavior is becoming a little wacky and we are all seeing it. And there’s no denying it. I think we’re all concerned about it.”

Bravo's Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion continues on Sun., Oct. 7 at 10 PM ET. Watch our interview with Gorga below.

    I just love Melissa Gorga! She is a superstar and she is wonderful. Teresa is so jealous that she will do anything to harm her so Melissa would do her family well if she stayed away from Teresa forever. All would understand. Well it appears that Bravo will fire Teresa and that is best. To call people names, criticize a woman's weight, and strike a cousin in the face, and blame it on anger makes one think is Teresa 12?
