Around the same time, Melissa reportedly snubbed Teresa from her Envy fashion show, though everyone else from the Real Housewives of New Jersey cast was in attendance.
“I was taught at a very young age that family was sacred. I was taught to honor my family, to respect my family … and no matter what, to always protect my family,” said Teresa. “Things change, people change. What once was is no longer.”
While holding back tears, Teresa continued, “Peace comes from accepting these changes, whether they are good or bad. Peace comes from accepting the truth, as difficult as it may be. And the truth is that most people don’t carry the same values as I have … These people have no values, they have no honor, and they have no respect.”
She went on to say, “They are jealous, treacherous, and they are evil. Their hearts are not filled with love. Their hearts are filled with hatred and envy.”
Speaking of “Envy” – it was recently reported that Melissa snubbed Teresa from her Envy boutique fashion show. According to The U.S. Sun, everyone else in the cast attended.
An insider told the outlet, “Teresa was not invited to Melissa’s show … Melissa left her off of her guest list on purpose because of their feud and strained relationship … No one from the cast expected her to be there.”
“Melissa was selling her ‘I know you hate me, but just try to control yourself’ sweatshirt at the show for $55,” the source added, quoting Melissa’s shady line from the reunion.
The fashion show was Melissa’s first in four years, as the tradition was stalled due to the pandemic. Each ticket was $125, and the event featured a percussionist, violinist, an open bar and buffet stations.
