"Real Housewives of New Jersey" stars Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga and Caroline Manzo have reportedly begun group therapy sessions in a bid to ease tensions in season five.
All cast members, including Jacqueline Laurita and Kathy Wakile, have been embroiled in ongoing feuds with Giudice. The mother of four and breakout star is constantly at the center of their problems, but they are now reportedly on a mission to put an end to the fighting.
"Teresa, Melissa and Caroline are sick and tired of all the fighting, so they say, 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.
During season four tensions reached new heights toward the end of the season when, Gorga, 35, accused Giudice, 40, of plotting with outsiders to embarrass her at the Posche fashion show. The mother of three claimed that Giudice asked a man named Angelo Vrohidis- a former manager of a gentleman's club- to expose her rumored past as a stripper, which Giudice has always denied.
The bestselling author founder previously made lighthearted jokes about Manzo, 51, in one of her cookbooks, which ultimately sparked a feud between the two. Manzo refused to accept Giudice's apologies and has had difficulty moving past the incident.
"Even though they said they were going to bury the hatchet, everyone is really emotional, and right now they're not really able to have a rational conversation without sliding into threats and yelling and tears," the source explained.
"All the women and their husbands are acting like they get along, but there is so much underlying mistrust that it is hard for any of them to move forward," the insider added.
