Things are getting tense between Teresa Giudice and Joe Gorga on The Real Housewives of New Jersey.
As viewers continue to witness what led up to their devastating falling out last summer, which resulted in Joe and Melissa Gorga skipping Teresa’s August 2022 wedding to Luis Ruelas, a sneak peek at the upcoming episode shows the couples at war.
“You’re happy right?” Joe asks Teresa in a sneak peek at the March 28 episode.
“Yes,” she replies.
“Why are you so like, like, you’re so mean. Like, ‘F-ck you,’ now?” Joe wonders.
And after Teresa insists, “that’s not true,” she tells Joe she doesn’t believe he’s been happy “for a long time,” as he claims.
“If you were happy, you would want to be a beautiful family,” she explains, prompting Melissa to speak up.
“We didn’t keep you out of the family. You kept us out of the family. This is your blood, and [Jennifer Aydin] made fun of him, and you chimed in. You chimed in. Like, what are you talking about?” she asked, signaling to Teresa’s season 12 reunion agreement that Joe is a “b-tch boy,” as Jennifer had suggested.
“You’re embarrassing,” Joe adds.
But according to Luis, he doesn’t disagree with his wife’s assessment.
“She called you ‘bitch boy’ but Joe, you’re playing it real well,” he reasons.
“Ah, shut up. I met you [and] in months, and you f-cked me,” Joe claps back. “Shut the f-ck up.”
At that point, Joe and Melissa are done with the situation and get up to leave.
“We’re so unhappy we’re gonna go get therapy,” Melissa declares sarcastically.
“Go get therapy. You should. Because then maybe we could be a happy family,” Teresa yells back.
Then, seemingly referencing their late parents, Joe tells his sister, “We became the biggest disappointment in life.”
“You could change that! You could change that!” she fires back.
But Joe isn’t satisfied, and replies, “Thank you honey, the matriarch of our family.”
Also, in the sneak peek, Jennifer, weighed in on Teresa and Joe’s family drama in a cast confessional, suggesting Melissa is a “wolf in sheep’s clothing.”
“This is the problem with Joe and Melissa. It’s like, any opportunity they have to try and make Teresa look bad, they almost double-down on it,” she said. “And Melissa puts on a sweet, pretty little face and gets away with it. But you know what they say: Beware of the wolf in sheep’s clothing.”
Meanwhile, back in the scene, Jackie Goldschneider is seen talking to Dolores Catania and Jennifer Fessler.
“Teresa likes to act like she’s a changed person. But like my therapist told me, ‘If you pretend it doesn’t exist, you never move forward,'” she shared.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey season 13 airs Tuesdays at 9/8c on Bravo.
