Last night was a big night for two of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, as Melissa Gorga‘s husband, Joe, opened a restaurant that both Melissa and Joe’s sister, Teresa Giudice, are involved in.
According to People, the restaurant- Gorga’s Homemade Pasta & Pizza- opened last night and is honoring Joe and Teresa’s late mother.
Joe told People that,“My mother loved to cook; it was like her drug. I always told her I was gonna open up a restaurant for her. Then I got busy. While I signed a contract on this place we lost her. So this is for her.”
Teresa added that, “We wanted to share her recipes with the world. I always would say, ‘Mom, everyone has to try your food!’ because that’s how I learned to cook.”
Joe and Melissa have come so far in their relationship with Teresa, who they had formerly feuded with for years.
From pictures that have surfaced online, it also looks like the cameras were rolling, and that a good time was had by all.
