As Melissa Gorga, 44, continues to keep her distance from Teresa Giudice, 51, amid filming on season 14, she’s been focusing on her friendships with the rest of the cast, including Danielle Cabral, 38, who reportedly invited her, and no other castmates, to her first-ever Boujie Kidz fashion show at New York Fashion Week.
“Danielle gets along with everyone with the exception of Jennifer Fessler. She is getting closer with Melissa Gorga and Rachel Fuda and is still great friends with Teresa Giudice and Jennifer Aydin,” an insider confirmed to All About the Real Housewives on September 11.
But while Danielle may be staying neutral with the majority of the RHONJ cast, she allegedly chose to only include Melissa in her event, although she may have tried to invite Rachel, 32, as well.
“Danielle only got x amount of tickets for free even though it was her show. She said she only had two tickets left in which she chose Melissa Gorga to come as Melissa has her own boutique. Melissa brought her cousin along with her. Rachel Fuda alleges that she was originally invited but couldn’t come,” the source shared. “Danielle could have bought tickets and invited the rest of the girls, but Danielle didn’t want to spend the money.”
Following Danielle’s fashion show, she took to her Instagram Story, where she shared a couple of photos of herself and Melissa.
Meanwhile, on Melissa’s page, she too shared images of the two of them.
“Finishing off [New York Fashion Week] watching [Danielle Cabral] do her thanggg with [Boujie Kidz Inc.] Love to see it! [Congratulations],” she wrote in her caption.
As for what’s next for the RHONJ cast, All About the Real Housewives confirmed that their next group event is scheduled to film this Saturday, September 16.
Melissa is set to host a housewarming party this weekend with the Real Housewives of New Jersey cast — aside, of course, from her sister-in-law, Teresa.
“Because the cast is still very divided, there will always be one or two housewives who don’t show up at a group event. We are hoping to get everyone together and find some solution at the end of all of this where everyone can be in the same room,” their insider explained. “The next event will be Melissa and Joe Gorga’s housewarming party on Saturday.”
“Everyone was invited with the exception of Teresa Giudice which is a shocker to no one,” they added.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey season 14 is expected to premiere on Bravo sometime in early 2024.
