The couple had been together for 10 years and were known synonymously as "Bennifer #2."

If there is ever a time to be with your family, it's when someone you're related to is facing 50 years in jail!
Or maybe it's the opposite…
Whatever it is, it appears Melissa Gorga is putting her ongoing stripper, cheating whore feud with her sister-in-law, Teresa Giudice, on the backburner right next to the ravioli.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey
copycat loyal wife revealed last night on Andy Cohen's Watch What Happens Live that the Gorgas and Giudices have reached a place of peace while all the legal shizz stirs around them.
"[We] are in a much better place than we've been in a long time. We are better together. It's just more fun, it's better, it's easy. We have a lot in common, as much as we don't have in common. We just have a good time together."
But it can't all be good times because with Teresa and Juicy Joe Giudice facing 39 counts of fraud and tax evasion, there's some serious ickiness that needs to be addressed. And we don't mean it should be written about in a cook book!
Don't worry, it seems the whole meatball-lovin' gang has done just that! Melissa revealed:
"Of course, I've reached out and spoke to Teresa [since the indictment.] She knows I have her back, and that the kids, of course, are the number one priority, and you know, that's what Joe and I are always here for . . . no matter what."
We never thought we'd see the day!
Who knows, if Tre and Juicy Joe do end up "going away," they might just be able to count on weekly visits from the Gorgas!
Now THAT'S how family does it!
