Teresa and Melissa have been able to rebuild their friendship through the years and have many great family experiences as a result of it all. But it doesn't imply everything between the two in-laws is perfect. In fact, there have been several controversies surrounding the pair.
They both went through a divorce around the same time which didn't help matters between them. And then there are issues with parenting: Melissa feels that Teresa isn't doing enough for her daughter Gabriela while Teresa thinks that Melissa is too controlling of her.
But despite all this, they are still connected by marriage and want what's best for one another. They work things out between themselves whenever possible so there should be no problems for any future engagements or marriages between them.
Teresa's sister-in-law joining the cast behind her back is the least of her concerns after everything she's been through on the program. Jennifer Aydin verified this on Watch What Happens Live in February 2020, adding, "I believe they certainly get along better than they used to." She also said that she thinks it's "kind of cute" that they're friends now.
Melissa was originally supposed to have a smaller role on the show, but after its success she was given her own spin-off series titled Melrose Place. The first season aired in 1992, and focused on the lives of several characters from the original series as they moved into a new apartment building called Melrose Place. It was not until year two that the existence of the other world was revealed and the main characters learned about the death of their counterparts. By then it was too late to do anything about it so they had to start fresh with their new identities.
Teresa's character was renamed Rachel Morgan and she was given her own story line. The actress who played her, Elizabeth Berkley, also has an acting career outside of TV, so she can't be expected to appear on both shows at the same time. But according to Aydin, they do stay in touch over the years even though they're busy with their own projects.
So yes, Teresa and Melissa get along fine even though they have different stories to tell.
Martin and Gina's marriage appears to be the most stable in the realm of made-for-TV couples. Martin and Gina are still together in the show's plot, but their "marriage" behind the scenes is clearly on the rocks. In the first episode, we see them arguing about whether or not to have children.
Their marriage was never intended to be more than an arrangement for financial reasons. When they first meet, she is a young widow with two small children who becomes his live-in assistant. Although they start out as friends, they soon develop feelings for each other and by the end of the first season they are engaged.
However, due to some unexpected circumstances, they can't get married until after their first seasons on the job have ended. By the time they do get married, it is clear that they no longer love each other but rather rely on each other for support. In fact, when he tries to leave her for another woman, she follows him around the world trying to stop him because she knows this is what he needs to become happy again.
In the final episode of the first season, it is revealed that she has been given a job at his company and they plan to resume their relationship then. This time, it seems like it might actually work out for them.
Melissa and Joey's Dynamic Duo Lawrence stated to the Chicago Tribune in 2010 that the two had "never ran into one other on-screen, but off-screen for years, sure." They added that although they didn't get along, they did have each other's backs.
Joey said in an interview with TV Guide that he and Melissa don't get along but added, "We've always had each others' backs. If anything happened to either of us, the other would take care of things."
In a 2012 interview with E! News, Melissa admitted that she and Joey do not get along and described him as a "control freak." She continued, "He's very much in charge of everything that goes on around him on the show. And if you don't do what he wants, then you're not going to be successful on the show."
However, she praised his work skills saying that he is very talented at what he does.
She also commented on how much she enjoys working with him noting that despite not getting along, they still have each other's back.
In the season 5 premiere, we see them having one of their many fights - this time over Gina wanting a child - and by the end of the episode, they're both crying foul play.
Their relationship was damaged when she found out about his previous marriage and he learned about her history with alcohol. But despite all this, they seem to love each other even though they have so much anger towards one another at times. We'll just have to wait and see what happens with their story.
In the meantime, here's where they both stand: Gina wants a baby while Martin doesn't. She tries to get him to change his mind by telling him that if she doesn't have a child, someone else will take her place as Queen Bee. This makes Martin angry because he feels like she's trying to replace him with another woman. He also doesn't want anyone else raising his daughter besides himself.
So without getting into too much detail, their issue is that she wants a child of their own and he doesn't. She tried to force him into it by threatening to leave him if he didn't comply but that only made him more opposed to it.
