"I feel like forever. Until the day I die. It's real. I love being able to tell the world that it's okay if you have someone in your family that you're not perfect with," Gorga said of the tension between herself and Giudice.

That said, she acknowledged that no matter their issues and how long they last, she and Giudice will always be family -- and they will always want the best for one another.

"We're still family. We still wish the best for each other, but we just don't wanna go to lunch," she explained. "It's never perfect. It might be one day, but it's not right now."

When asked about the upcoming 13th season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, which is expected to premiere on Bravo sometime late next year or early next year, Gorga said that fans are in for a real treat. After all, the end of season 12 didn't close on the happiest of notes.

"It's been a lot because we all left off on a crazy note," Gorga shared. "I would say at the reunion, there was a lot of hard feelings. There was a lot of sadness, and there was a lot of friendships that just did not mend."

"We're moving forward a little bit more now," she shared.
