While appearing on the latest episode of Us Weekly magazine’s podcast, “Getting Real with the Housewives,” Melissa offered some advice to her fellow “Real Housewives” star, telling the actress and mother of three that when it comes to facing issues with cast mates, nothing is ever solved by running away from the issues.
After Brandi Glanville went public with claims of an affair with Denise on the latest episode of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” Melissa encouraged Denise to stick around in tense moments and say what she needs to say to her co-stars.
“I always say stay there and get out whatever you want to say. When you leave the scene, sometimes that’s not always the best way because then you lead them to talk about it and it’s not always the truth,” Melissa said.
“So I personally never run from a scene. I sit there until I get my point across and explain it and state my facts,” Melissa continued. “You got to just throw in the towel and be like, ‘All right, I’m not perfect’ and that’s why we’re on the show, to show we’re not here to act like a Mary Poppins.”
Speaking of her own experiences on “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” Melissa said that she’s dealt with her fair share of difficult moments on the show.
“It was just always hard for me in the beginning with my sister-in-law and all the family stuff,” Melissa said of her on-screen drama with Teresa Giudice. “If she would ever bring up anything that was family drama, I never liked that.”
Luckily, ahead of the 11th season of her show, Melissa says that she and Teresa have gotten to a much better place in their relationship.
“She’s doing really good,” Melissa said of Teresa. “We’ve definitely been spending time together.”
Melissa and Teresa have feuded on the show for years and at times, they’ve gotten into full-blown arguments with cameras rolling. That said, when it comes to the “Real Housewives,” that’s the nature of the game.
To see more of Denise and her co-stars, don’t miss new episodes of the 10th season of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” on Wednesday nights at 9 p.m. on Bravo.
As for Melissa’s show, “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” the new season, season 11 is currently in production and expected to air on Bravo sometime in 2021.
