Teresa Giudice is reacting to a claim that she knew Melissa Gorga was in talks to join Real Housewives of New Jersey and had filmed an interview with production. Meanwhile, a past interview about Melissa and Joe Gorga‘s strange encounter is buzzing in the fanbase and calling Joe’s alleged actions into question.
The sisters-in-law reportedly stopped communication after Teresa discussed a rumor about Melissa’s alleged affair. The incident purportedly triggered Joe and Melissa to skip Teresa’s wedding to Luis Ruelas.
On Instagram, shared by @commentsbybravo, Teresa reacted to a clip of Heather McDonald, who claimed Melissa said Teresa knew about her talks to join the show.
Teresa commented on the clip with a single word: “LIAR.”
In related news, fans are now addressing a past interview of Melissa, regarding a strange moment with Joe at a restaurant.
In Melissa’s own words, she claimed Joe “went insane, throwing back his chair, jumping up, screaming at me to get my hands off” of a guy after Melissa touched a man’s tattoo and said she liked it.
“It was so embarrassing and infuriating. We were in a crowded restaurant,” said Melissa, who was dating Joe at the time of the encounter. “I touched a guy’s arm. Big deal! We left before we finished eating.”
In the excerpt shared by @therealityrundown on Instagram, Melissa added, “This was the first time I thought, ‘Whoa! He’s old-school Italian!’ This was why my mother said, ‘Never marry an Italian.'”
She continued, “Later that night after we stopped yelling, he explained, ‘You can’t touch a stranger’s arm and say how much you like it.'”
