Despite their differences, the Real Housewives of New Jersey costar hopes her sister-in-law's new memoir "sells a million copies"
When PEOPLE asked Melissa about Teresa’s book at the Kids Rock! fashion show Thursday, she said, “I wish Teresa all the best and hope she sells a million copies.”
Gorga, 36, said she downloaded a copy of the memoir, Turning the Tables: From Housewife to Inmate and Back Again on Wednesday and just started reading it.

Though Gorga and Giudice have had a sometimes rocky relationship, Gorga says she wanted to be there for Giudice’s four daughters as she served an 11-month prison sentence last year.
“I think when Teresa first went in we still were rocky, but towards the end of her sentence she actually sent me a letter saying how much she appreciated my help with the girls,” Gorga said.

She also weighed in on comments Giudice has made, claiming Gorga joined Real Housewives of New Jersey behind her back.
“We both have different versions and probably will never agree,” said Gorga. “Honestly, it’s in the past and I am not going to let it ruin the relationship we have today.”
Giudice previously told PEOPLE that her relationship with Gorga has been on the mend since her time in prison.
“I think Melissa and I just realized what’s important in life, that family is the most important thing.” Giudice said. “We’re just going to both be there for each other and not let anything get in the way.”
Giudice’s memoir Turning the Tables: From Housewife to Inmate and Back Again, written with PEOPLE’s K.C. Baker, was released on Tuesday.
