RHONJ: Andy Cohen Screams at Teresa & Melissa Over Nasty Feud
On the Dec. 22 episode of her On Display podcast, Melissa revealed how her daughter Antonia, 17, has been handling all the family chaos. And much to the star’s surprise, she said her daughter is simply “unfazed” by it all.
“It’s so crazy that she is such a drama-free—like she almost giggles at drama, like laughs at me,” Melissa explained. “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.'”
Melissa also noted that growing up on reality TV may have helped Antonia—as well as her and Joe’s sons Gino, 15, and Joey, 12—learn to deal with conflict “in a calm manner.”
“I think she’s also watched certain situations and things that I’ve been through too, and how I handle them and the calmness in the room instead of the chaotic-ness,” Melissa said, “and I think she’s learned from that. And it could also just be her personality.”
