'Real Housewives" of New Jersey stars Teresa Giudice and Caroline Manzo have reportedly reconciled months after a bitter feud threatened to tear them apart for good.
The feuding co-stars, who once considered one another like "family," spent season's three and four at each other's throats after Giudice, 40, made lighthearted jokes about Manzo, 51, in one of her best-selling cookbooks. Giudice apologized for the incident and Manzo struggled to move past it, and now the pair has finally reconciled, according to In Touch magazine.
"'Life is short, your family is hurting and it's time for everyone to heal,'" Manzo allegedly told Giudice during a cast trip to Lake George, which is expected to air in season five.
"They've been able to get along ever since," a source told In Touch of Manzo's peace offering which Giudice accepted.
The news follows a report claiming Giudice has also mending her relationships with sister-in-law Melissa Gorga and former best friend Jacqueline Laurita.
During season four Gorga, 35, accused Giudice of plotting with outsiders to embarrass her by alleging she once worked as an exotic dancer at a New Jersey gentleman's club. While they stopped speaking for several months, they have since reconciled after an alleged group therapy session.
"Teresa, Melissa and Caroline are sick and tired of all the fighting ... so Bravo brought in a therapist from California to try and stop the arguments," a source told Fox News correspondent Tom Murro.
Giudice and Gorga, who also happen to be sisters-in-law, have also been dragging their husbands Joe Giudice and Joe Gorga into therapy. Both men have previously come to blows in recent seasons while defending their wives.
"Both Joe Giudice and Joe Gorga were also in the group therapy session, but Caroline's husband Al Manzo was not," the source said.
Giudice and Laurita, 37, recently went on a double date with their respective spouses at The Brick House in Wyckoff, New Jersey and it was reportedly just like old times. During last year's season four reunion show, the pair hurled insults at one another, which resulted in them ending their friendship.
"Teresa and Jax had dinner with each other and their husbands, Joe Giudice and Chris Laurita, recently, and it was actually a friendly night all captured on camera by Bravo," a source told RadarOnline.com.
"There weren't any fights, no table flipping and surprisingly no arguing, at least not on camera," the source continued.
A separate source claims that although the cast mates could barely stand to be in the same room during season four, they are drastically different and far more peaceful in season five.
"For now, all the women are filming together again," a source said. "At least they all cooperate with one another and get along without every scene turning into a screaming match."
