Real Housewives of New Jersey star Melissa Gorga is not ready to make nice with her sister-in-law and co-star Teresa Giudice.

"Maybe time heals all wounds, but for now, we need a break," Gorga told Celebuzz at MTV's Restore the Shore fundraising event last Thursday night. But the family feud hasn't been easy for Gorga and her husband Joe.

"It's hard for all of us," she added. "There's only so much we can do. We tried, and we tried so many times. At some point, you just have to step back."

Gorga and Giudice had a very public falling out last year — it aired during the Season 4 finale of the hit Bravo show — when 40-year-old Giudice allegedly orchestrated a plan to publicly humiliate the mother-of-three by accusing her of being a stripper.

"I felt like I was accused of a lot of things, like somebody was trying to hurt my character," Gorga said. "I don't like that. I don't respect that. I would never do that to someone."

So what's to come in the fifth season of Real Housewives of New Jersey? Rumors of former cast member Danielle Staub's return to the series have been circulating online, but Gorga kept mum.

"Who knows what's to come!" she said.
