Real Housewives of New Jersey star Melisa Gorga isn’t buying sister-in-law and co-star Teresa Giudice’s recent claims that she “never watched” past episodes of RHONJ.
Teresa first blasted Melissa and brother Joe Gorga during a November 2022 interview with former Bravo producer Carlos King, and she said that she had never watched the show, calling it a “blessing in disguise” as it would have only worsened her relationship with Joe and Melissa.
Melissa and Teresa have been embroiled in a messy family feud since an altercation broke out while filming the finale of the upcoming season 13 of the show, which resulted in Melissa and Joe skipping Teresa’s wedding to her now-husband, Luis Ruelas.
Teresa ultimately ended up rewatching some of the episodes, and she called the experience “devastating and “heart wrenching” as she saw many of the past comments Melissa and Joe had said about her.
“I’m watching everything that my brother and Melissa said about me,” Teresa said. “It’s the worst. Like, I can’t even believe my brother and Melissa would say things like that about me.”
Melissa is calling her bluff.
“I don’t believe that Teresa never watched the show,” she stated on a December 2022 episode of her podcast, Melissa Gorga on Display, via Heavy. Part of the reason? The cast has been required to write weekly blogs reacting to the prior week’s RHONJ episodes since 2004.
“We would have to recap the whole entire episode, word for word,” Melissa continued. “She [Teresa] recapped everything. I don’t know who was writing her blogs, then, if she never watched any of the episodes – it makes zero sense.”
Melissa also accused Teresa of “digging” up old issues in order to remain relevant and to keep perpetuating the “I hate Melissa” storyline.
“You’re digging, reaching for anything, because you have nothing to be mad at,” the “On Display” singer claimed. “I would respect [her] more saying, ‘Listen, I just don’t want you in my life. I don’t have to make up a thousand reasons as to why you’re a sh–ty person, and why I don’t like you, and why I’m hurt.’”
Margaret Josephs, who appeared alongside Melissa on the podcast, agreed with Melissa’s assessment.
“’Why are you talking about things from ten years ago?’” Margaret claimed she asked Teresa. “It’s not fun and it’s not healthy. I don’t understand where it’s coming from.”
Either way, Melissa has said she is “done” with Teresa.
“I got off the roller coaster,” Melissa told PEOPLE. “I don’t want to be on it anymore.”
