Melissa-Teresa feud explained
Teresa Giudice’s relationship with her brother Joe Gorga and sister-in-law Melissa Gorga has deteriorated since season 13 of RHONJ ended last year. Melissa Gorga and Teresa Giudice made it quite clear in their season 13 taglines that their feud is far from over. The rivalry, which erupted mostly as a result of Joe and Melissa’s choice to forego Teresa’s August 2022 wedding to Luis “Louie” Ruelas, was hinted at in the show’s season 13 teaser, which also included various arguments among the family members—some of which were violent.
The reasons behind the Giudice-Gorga family conflict, such as why Joe and Melissa chose not to attend the wedding and Teresa said that Joe was “not my brother,” will reveal if the celebs wish to reconcile in the next season. Melissa Gorga said on an episode of her podcast Melissa Gorga On Display:
“I’ll tell all of my listeners: clearly, something happened at the end of shooting The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Those specifics, I definitely cannot provide those now. I am not permitted to discuss what we have shot.”
Melissa Gorga was introduced to RHONJ viewers in the third season, despite the fact that Teresa had been a cast member since season one. Teresa’s brother Joe Gorga called her “trash” during his son’s baptism in Season 3’s opening episode, In The Name of the Father, which aired on May 16, 2011. As a consequence of the statement, he got into a confrontation with Teresa’s ex-husband Joe Giudice. Teresa also referred to Melissa as a “money digger” on the broadcast, going so far as to claim that Joe had cheated on Melissa in 2012. Melissa had to put a stop to the torrent of allegations. She added that if circumstances had been different, she would have let Joe to stay through their financial lows, which she did not.
Joe Giudice and Joe Gorga participated in a fistfight in season 7 of RHONJ, giving the hatred a new aspect and garnering them each a jail term. Teresa was sentenced to 11 months in prison as well. Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga resolved to put their fight behind them in 2015, but it flared up again in 2018 when Teresa accused Melissa’s husband of not spending enough time with his family.
Joe Gorga said that Joe Giudice imprisoned Teresa during the first section of the season 11 reunion and that he is still waiting for a “public apology” from Teresa’s ex-husband. Melissa also said that when shooting the season 12 reunion episode of RHONJ, she and Teresa decided to stop behaving like friends. This season, tensions are running high in RHONJ. The Giudice-Gorga pair will be seen in their season finale. Will it put a stop to this contentious affair once and for all, or will there be more? Watch to find out.
