Melissa Gorga on Teresa Giudice: I've Got Her Back!

by at . Comments

Teresa Giudice may be in serious legal trouble, with 39 counts of financial fraud and a possible 50-year prison sentence hanging over her head.

But at least The Real Housewives of New Jersey star can find comfort in an unlike ally: rival sister-in-law Melissa Gorga.

The reality star told Andy Cohen last night on Watch What Happens Live that she and Giudice "are in a much better place than we've been in a long time."

"I've reached out and spoke to Teresa [since the indictment]," Gorga told the host. "She knows I have her back, and that the kids, of course, are the number-one priority, and that's what [husband] Joe and I are always here for... no matter what."

Giudice fled to Florida over the weekend (as pictured above) and appeared at a red carpet event at Pangea nightclub.

She's next due in court on August 14 - and Gorga says the "key" thing for the family is the bond between her three kids and the four Teresa shares with her husband, Joe Giudice.

"That's the most important part," Melissa said. "My husband [only] has one sister."
