The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Melissa Gorga has her sister-in-law’s back. Rumors have circulated for months about Teresa Giudice’s relationship with high school boyfriend, Anthony Delorenzo.

RHONJ Star Melissa Gorga Speaks Out On Relationship Rumors
Teresa and her sister-in-law haven’t always seen eye-to-eye. In fact, they had many arguments after Melissa joined RHONJ. In fact, the two seem closer than ever. For that reason, Melissa feels the need to speak up on Teresa’s behalf and clarify rumors.
The On Display singer reveals that Teresa and Anthony grew up across the street from each other. Melissa’s husband, Joe Gorga, is best friends with the contractor. That connection explains why Anthony was included for the family’s Christmas festivities.
Despite dating in high school, Melissa says Teresa and Anthony aren’t dating. At least, not each other. During an appearance on Watch What Happens Live, Melissa joked that Anthony is dating the world. She said,
“They’re both single right now, so they’re just kind of like, ‘Hey, look at me, well look at me.’”
However, Melissa also called Anthony a “good guy.” While she wouldn’t have a problem with the exes reuniting, she doesn’t see it happening, People reports.
Teresa Posts Photo of Toned Abs
The Real Housewives of New Jersey star notoriously took up bodybuilding while her estranged husband was in prison. A new gym photo of Teresa reveals that she has toned but not overly muscular arms.
Arms aside, the real focus of the photo is Teresa’s flat stomach and abs.
Teresa isn’t the only one who’s turned to the gym for distraction. During his time in prison, Joe Giudice lost more than 50 pounds. He routinely shows off his trim figure and MMA training sessions on social media.
