Gabriella Giudice is speaking out against her aunt, Melissa Gorga, in a just-released sneak peek at next week’s episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey.

As Joe Gorga and Luis Ruelas got into a screaming match over statements Melissa made about Teresa Giudice on her podcast, Teresa was seen sitting down with Gabriella, 19, and her oldest daughter, Gia Giudice, 22, to discuss claims Melissa made at the season 12 reunion in regard to her role in the girls’ lives during Teresa’s prison stint in 2015.

“Why would you put out there in the public that you were there for my daughters,” Teresa asked Gia and Gabriella.

“Especially when it’s not true,” Gabriella added.

Meanwhile, as they sat at a table together, Joe and Luis went to war.

“You’re on a podcast talking about your sister,” Luis said in regard to an appearance Joe made on Melissa’s podcast last May.

“Don’t f-cking do that,” Joe warned.

“I’ll sit here and say whatever I want to say,” Luis replied, prompting Joe to beat his fist on the table.

“And I’mma break your f-cking balls,” he yelled.

Along with the sneak peek, All About the Real Housewives shared a clip from Melissa’s podcast, On Display, in which the RHONJ star spoke with Joe about him “being annoyed about the show.”

“It’s almost like there was a point when this show, when Teresa was away in prison and they were getting rid of everyone on the cast except for me. I was the last housewife standing but we were recasting the show,” Melissa recalled, giving a nod to the exits of Teresa Aprea, Amber Marchese, and Nicole Napolitano.

“There was not one other person on the show except for Teresa and I that were going to come back so … how about being grateful that Joe and I, that we’re still here and we kept the core of that show together so that when she got out we were able to cast all these new people?” Melissa continued.

The blog  then shared clip from the RHONJ reunion, which featured Teresa and Melissa arguing about how helpful Melissa was when Teresa was behind bars.

“When you were away, I was the one helping your mother pick up your girls and bring them to dance. You remember that. You remember who’s been here through all your sh-t,” Melissa had said to Teresa.

And in response, Teresa said, “Uh, no. Ask my daughters. [Andy Cohen], you know who you should ask that? Ask my daughters.”

The Real Housewives of New Jersey season 13 airs Tuesdays at 9/8c on Bravo.
