Jacqueline Laurita Says Joe Giudice Thinks Joe Gorga Reunion Was Staged and Teresa “Knew” Beforehand, Plus Melissa Was “DMing” Producers and Danielle Staub to Get on RHONJ

Jacqueline Laurita indicated that Joe Giudice thinks his filmed reunion with Joe Gorga was staged, and Teresa Giudice “knew about” it beforehand. She also claimed Melissa Gorga was “DMing the producers” and Danielle Staub while attempting to get on the Real Housewives of New Jersey.

Additionally, the alum addressed her recent conversation with sister-in-law Caroline Manzo amid the “investigation” allegedly involving Brandi Glanville on the Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip season 4.

On “Two T’s In A Pod” podcast with hosts Tamra Judge and Teddi Mellencamp, Jacqueline revealed Teresa “knew about” Joe Gorga’s reunion with Joe Giudice “ahead of time.”

When asked if the video – which appeared to be spontaneous – was actually “staged,” Jacqueline answered, “I think Joe [Giudice] thinks it was.”

Jacqueline then addressed how Melissa Gorga joined the RHONJ.

“Melissa had been DMing the producers trying to get on the show. She went behind their back,” said Jacqueline.

Jacqueline shared that one of the producers “told” her this directly.

“She was also DMing the whole season 2 — I think it was — she was messaging Danielle Staub,” the alum added, referring to Teresa’s former enemy.

At one point in the podcast, Jacqueline doubled down on her claim that Melissa “always” said Caroline was too ‘old and boring’ to return to the RHONJ.

Tamra declared that Caroline wasn’t “boring” on the Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip, alluding to the recent allegations regarding her castmate Brandi.

“Well [Caroline] wasn’t boring in Ultimate Girls Trip,” said Tamra, in a clip shared by @thebravobabe_ on Instagram. “It’s all over the press.”

Tamra asked if Jacqueline discussed the topic with her sister-in-law.

According to Jacqueline, Caroline couldn’t tell her “much” as it was under “investigation,” but whatever occurred was “really traumatic” and Caroline was trying to “process it all.”

“It was just nothing she could ever imagine, and it was bad,” Jacqueline added. “I just kind of let it go at that point, and I didn’t dig anymore because I could tell it was bothering her.”

The Real Housewives of New Jersey airs Tuesday nights at 9 p.m. EST on Bravo.
