The feud between "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" stars Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga continues. Melissa recently appeared on "Good Day New York" where she revealed that she has not seen or spoken to her sister-in-law since she began her 15-month prison sentence earlier this year after being charged with multiple counts of fraud in October 2014.RELATED: Prison Meltdown! Tearful Teresa Giudice Won’t Let Hubby Joe Visit Her Anymore, As ‘She Can’t Take It Anymore’
The pair have been at odds before, allowing many of their feuds to play out in front of Bravo's cameras. They appeared to have made amends during Season 6 of the Bravo series. Gorga even acted as a support system for Giudice as she enjoyed her final months of freedom. Unfortunately, it seems that reconciliation was short-lived.
During her appearance on the morning talk show, Melissa revealed that she had not yet visited with Teresa, saying her sister-in-law and co-star was most likely saving all of her visits for her husband Joe Giudice and her four children.
"I think she's going to want every visit to be with her children," she said. "It's obviously not easy being away from the children, but I think that's probably the hardest part."
Not only have the "Housewives" stars not had a recent face-to-face conversation, Melissa also shared that the only contact she's had with Teresa has been through her husband, Joe Gorga. The 36-year-old says Joe regularly receives emails and phone calls from his sister and shares the updates with her.

Eek! ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ star Brandi Glanville gave the viewers more than they asked for during the shows finale when her boob fell out of her top and exposed her nipple.Brandi Glanville, 42, accidentally showed off her best assets on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills March 24 finale. While wearing a very low-cut black top without a bra, Brandi’s boob slipped out of the shirt without any warning. At first, she didn’t even notice!
Talk about a wardrobe malfunction. Brandi’s own boob made a cameo on the explosive RHOBH finale, and ,believe it or not, that was one of the “lighter” moments during the explosive episode.
It happened while she was talking to her pal and co-star, Kim Richards, who was polite enough to point out the slip before anyone else caught it. Phew!

Kyle Richards’ feud with her sister Kim has gotten so bad, her husband, Mauricio Umansky, is stepping in! Sources tell RadarOnline.com he wants her to “keep her distance” from her sister over issues involving their daughter, Alexia, being bitten by Kim’s pit bull.RELATED: The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 5 Finale Recap: Kim, Kyle Richards' Feud Grows Stronger at Adrienne Maloof's Party
Umansky is “disgusted with Kim’s antics and how ungrateful he thinks she has been towards Kyle,” an insider told Radar. “For years before RHOBH, the couple helped financially support Kim. From paying for car repairs to tuition bills, Kyle always gave money whenever she asked. This was before Mauricio became wildly successful. At the beginning, times were lean. Any extra money Kyle and Mauricio had went to Kim.”
But after their daughter, Alexia, was bitten by Kim’s dog, Kingsley, last year, the source said, “There was no offer for financial compensation. They wouldn’t have accepted it, but the gesture would have made a big difference.”
And their feud only escalated as the sisters played the blame game, the source says: “Kim even suggested that Alexia was at fault for the attack!”
Now, “Mauricio never wants to see Kim ever again,” said the source. “She has caused nothing but sadness and grief to Kyle.”
The sisters continue to fight over the sale of their late mother’s house, with Kim accusing Kyle of stealing profits from her, as Radar reported.
Meanwhile, their other sister, Kathy Hilton, is “refusing to take sides in the drama,” the source said. “Kim and Kyle have always had their issues; it goes back to their childhood. They have always been very competitive. Unless Kim apologizes to Kyle for her behavior, Mauricio will encourage his wife to keep her distance from her.”

For now, Frankel, who is still locked in a bitter divorce battle with her husband Jason Hoppy, has no long-term plans for her romantic future. As she told Andy Cohen in an interview on Bravo's What What Happens Live: "I will never ever be legally married again."
As for dating in the future, the reality star tells PEOPLE, "I've never dated anyone in this crazy world that I live in now and I don't think I would want to. I would only want to date someone low-profile."

A Housewife's happily ever after, perhaps! The Real Housewives of Atlanta's Kenya Moore has Millionaire Matchmaker Patti Stanger to thank for setting her up with her new boyfriend James.
The producer, 44, appeared on the Sunday, Mar. 22 episode of the dating show, where her fellow Housewife Cynthia Bailey wanted to set up her pal with a quality man.
During the episode, it was revealed that Moore has been proposed to a whopping (seven!) times, and none of those romantic scenarios panned out — largely due to her fear of abandonment. Matchmaking pro Stanger, however, found a potential solution to Moore's woes — first with an emotional counseling session, which was followed by a mixer with a packed room of eligible bachelors including one dashing gentleman named James.
As evidenced during Moore's dinner date at Sur with James, the two immediately hit it off and even exchange a cute kiss at the end of their flirtatious night out.
At the end of the episode, Bravo noted that the RHOA star was still dating her hunky match. Moore also officially broke her silence on her relationship status after Sunday's episode of Millionaire Matchmaker aired.
"Sometimes you can spend your whole life looking for Prince Charming when a King arrives," the former beauty queen wrote, alongside a photo with her new beau. "Thank you @pattistanger and @cynthiabailey10 and my fans for your love and support and desire for my happiness. #matchmaker #KingJames #FriendsFirst #MillionaireMatchmaker."RELATED: Kenya Moore On Porsha Williams: ‘She Has Never Once Apologized’
Ana Quincoces' time on The Real Housewives of Miami was brief, but her vacation time down in the Florida Keys was cut even shorter. First by cockroaches and then by the law.RELATED: Ana Quincoces: My Life After the Real Housewives
Quincoces had a suspended driver's license but continued to drive freely. Apparently she's been spending a lot of time down in the Keys, because Monroe County Sheriff's Deputies had previously informed her of her license status and that she shouldn't be driving. In fact, back on February 9, Deputy Bryan Cross had responded to a disturbance call in Key Largo and encountered Quincoces, according to the arrest report. Cross and a fellow deputy at the time informed her that her license was suspended, seized it, and told her not to drive.
Fast-forward to this past Sunday. Deputy Cross was doing a security check near Mile Marker 99 of U.S. 1 at 3:40 a.m. when he noticed a familiar Subaru SUV driving down the road. He recognized it as Quincoces' vehicle and pulled her over.
Quincoces had still not fixed her license situation, and Cross asked her why she was driving when she had previously been told not to. Quincoces had no excuse and was arrested on misdemeanor charges and taken to a jail on Plantation Key for a few hours.
However, according to Keys Info, Quincoces now has an excuse. She says she was staying in a home that had been listed by a realtor friend of hers, but found that the home was full of cockroaches. She said she just wanted to return home and didn't know she had a suspended license.
The grand irony of Quincoces' apparent inability to understand basic law regarding driver's license suspension is that she is indeed a lawyer by trade. She's also a cookbook author and "chef," but who isn't these days?
Quincoces, a 50 year old from Coral Gables, first appeared on the first season of Real Housewives of Miami as a guest, returned to the second season a main cast member, and was downgraded to recurring "friend of the Housewives" in season three. The show has not been officially cancelled or renewed by Bravo.

If you feel like the drama involving Lisa Rinna and the Richards sisters has been going on forever, you're not alone.\RELATED: Lisa Rinna Questions Why Kim Richards Never Writes Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills Blogs; Brandi Glanville Is Back With JR!
Lisa Rinna feels that way too, but for some reason, she can't stop talking about it!
It's been more than two weeks since the Lisa vs.Kim Richards brawl first aired (and it's been several months since it actually happened), but Lisa took to her Bravo blog yet again today to clear things for roughly the 4 billionth time.
You may recall that the situation heated up because of Kim spreading rumors that Harry Hamlin is cheating on Lisa.
Despite having already made her thoughts on that topic quite clear (via an airborne glass of wine) Lisa chose to write about it again today:
"Kim has still not apologized for her uncalled for behavior toward my husband," Lisa writes. "I do still have a lot to process and a lot has been left unresolved."
Despite her obvious ill will toward Kim, Lisa says she still wants to assist the other women in staging an intervention for her. She also feels however, that everyone should stop meddling in Kim and Kyle's lives.
Needless to say, Lisa is a bit...conflicted. Go to her Bravo blog to see if you can make more sense of it than we could.
Kim wraps things up by promising that the "drama continues" on the upcoming reunion show that "you've heard so much about." Sounds like everyone should wear their finest wine-proof attire.
Watch The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills online in time to get caught up for the finale and the epic throwdown of a reunion show.
Phaedra Parks said that her estranged jailbird husband Apollo Nida‘s ultimate con may have been on her, on Sunday night’s The Real Housewives of Atlanta.RELATED: RHOA Recap: Phaedra Parks Says Her Marriage to Apollo Nida 'Was Madness All the Time'
But it was an emotional trick, rather than a financial one, as viewers learned Parks had a strong prenuptial agreement in place.
During the episode, Parks sought advice from top Atlanta lawyer Ronne Kaplan on how to divorce Nida, who went to prison for bank fraud and identity theft.
During the emotional meeting, Kaplan asked Parks (herself an attorney) the obvious question: Why did she married Nida, who had already been behind bars before his most recent stint.
Even knowing Nida’s past, Parks sighed, “I married him because I thought he was a changed man; I married him because I knew that he loved me.
“Some people do change their lives and make a difference and I thought he was that person, but obviously he wasn’t. I stayed with him when people said I shouldn’t. I loved him.
Parks said she’d “believed that he wanted to be someone different,” sadly noting, “I chose to believe him and maybe he was conning me the whole time.”
The housewife told Kaplan that Nida had told her before reporting to prison that he wanted a divorce and that she wanted to make sure her interests were protected.
The attorney noted that the couple’s prenuptial agreement “looks airtight.
“Financially, you each walk away with whatever you had and whatever you earned during the marriage.”
But her lawyer said the couple’s two young sons were the big issue, and told her bluntly, “They need to have as much contact as possible with their dad.”
Parks said she wanted “to make it possible” but the federal prison in Kentucky where Nida was serving his eight-year sentence was hours away, which meant she’d lose money taking time off work.

The new season of The Real Housewives of New York City will be a packed house. The cast photo and preview for season 7 shows that there will be eight starring housewives: Sonja Morgan, LuAnn de Lesseps, Bethenny Frankel, Carole Radziwill, Ramona Singer, Dorinda Medley, Kristen Taekman, and Heather Thomson. In his latest Ask Andy video, executive producer Andy Cohen addressed concerns that having eight starring housewives in one show is just too much.RELATED: Who Is Dorinda Medley? The New 'RHONY' Housewife Is A Socialite Who's Dating The "Sultan Of Stains"
“You know people were freaking out because, ‘Oh my God, there’s eight housewives. Is that too many?’ For some reason, it just works. It works. It doesn’t feel like there’s too many women. You’re just kind of following wherever the action is. And you know everybody except Dorinda.”Regarding Dorinda, Andy revealed that she had no problem being a part of the group since she already knew two of the housewives. Andy also talked about the return of Bethenny, who is back on the show after being away for three seasons.
“Dorinda fits right in because she’s old friends with Ramona. She knows Heather from the Berkshires. She’s got a huge house in the Berkshires. And so she fits in very quickly and easily. Bethenny obviously fits right in and so it just feels great.”Dorinda’s profile on BravoTV.com describes her as a Manhattan socialite who has rubbed shoulders with British royalty and Hollywood celebrities. A mom of one, she has survived the demise of her first marriage and the death of her second husband.
Since both Dorinda Medley and Heather Thomson have a home in the Berkshires, perhaps there will be another group trip to the locale? In season 6, the women all went to Heather’s vacation home in the Berkshires. Not surprisingly, there was a lot of drama between the women on the trip, largely thanks to Ramona Singer.
Ramona complained about how Heather’s house just wasn’t up to par, especially since it lacked air conditioning, and dismissed the Berkshires as a place for people who can’t afford the Hamptons. Ramona even threw a wine glass at Kristen Taekman during a boat ride, splitting her lip. Kristen’s offense? Splashing some water on Ramona and getting her hair wet.
Ramona has since made up with Heather at least. On Friday, she tweeted a photo from Sonja’s premiere party for the show.
