It looks like Melissa Gorga and Teresa Giudice have settled any and all fights their families might have had as Melissa appeared on Watch What Happens Live Sunday and gushed about her sister-in-law and brother-in-law Joe Giudice.

Although Teresa remains in prison, Melissa dished to host Andy Cohen, "She's doing well." Despite the circumstances, Teresa is "doing really good," but Melissa revealed that it hasn't been easy for Joe without his wife around. He has, however, really stepped up to the plate to take care of his children, Melissa revealed.

"It's heavy on his heart," said Melissa when asked about how Joe is handling everything.

She also told Cohen that Joe has been there for his daughters every step of the way, including driving them to school every morning. Although Teresa used to drive the girls to school, Joe has picked up the duties, which has become bittersweet for Melissa, who used to pass Teresa every morning.

"It's heartwarming to see him," she said, tearing up as she recalled the family's morning routine. "He's manning up and doing what he has to do. I see him drive the girls every morning."

Although Teresa was sentenced to 15 months in Danbury Correctional Facility, a source told E! News that she couldn't be doing any better. In fact, she has gotten into "the best shape of her life" since beginning to exercise three times a day.

"She says [exercise] helps her sleep. She does cardio, bikes, weights and even Pilates. She does not miss a day, she does it religiously. She is extremely fit right now," the source told us. "She says it herself, she's in the best shape of her life. People find different things to focus on when they're in prison. This is what she's throwing herself into."

She has struggled to find a way to eat healthily but, according to the source, she is diligent in seeking out alternatives to the prison-given meals.

"She's doing her best to eat right, but it's a challenge. The prepared food is processed and meals include a lot of starches and carbs," the source dished. "She's been very diligent in seeking alternatives—items from the commissary that are healthier."

"She always attends breakfast, lunch and dinner, but sometimes she'll skip the meal and get something from the commissary after, like tuna," the source added.

As soon as she gets out we're sure she'll be excited to cook for her family again!
