Gia told Andy Cohen during Watch What Happens Live after the event, "I was a little surprised by the way he reacted toward me and how defensive he was, because bottom line, he is [talking about] my father. So have a little respect.”

At BravoCon Gia was asked by US Weekly about the current drama to which she replied, "I’m just also trying to be the bigger person."

Melissa and Joe's daughter, Antonia, also weighed in on the rift between her parents and her Aunt Teresa. Melissa said on her On Display Podcast that Antonia isn't really bothered by any of it adding, "It’s so crazy that she is such a drama-free — like, she almost giggles at drama, like, laughs at me. She’ll laugh at me and she’ll be like, ‘Oh, Mom, please.’ Like, she’s unfazed by the fact that even her cousins unfollowed her parents on Instagram. She just is like, ‘You know what, Mom? Not your problem, theirs.'"

Teresa replies saying, "Well, they were, and then Antonia didn't come..." Melissa cuts her off, "Are you going to blame Antonia for something right now?" Teresa loses her temper practically screaming, "Girl! Did I say Antonia was bad?" Melissa said that "You be that Aunt, I'm not going to be that Aunt."

Based on all this it appears that no, Teresa is sadly not currently friends with Melissa and Joe's kids. But there is always hope! After all, Teresa has had drama with her brother and they were able to resolve that.
