Have you talked to any of the housewives since the reunion wrapped?
No. I haven’t spoke to any of them.
Is it true that Jacqueline told you Chris Laurita previously cheated on her?
Yes. She did. Chris was never allowed to go out with my husband unless they played poker at each other’s houses. I think they might have went out once the whole time I was friends with Jacqueline and I remember Joe telling me Jacqueline wouldn’t stop calling Chris. The only thing Chris is allowed to do is play cards. My husband is allowed to go out with the guys and that’s fine because I go out with the girls and we trust each other. I don’t like talking about other people’s marriages but I’m not going to bite my tongue and say nothing while Jacqueline continues to talk about my marriage to strangers on twitter. (Jacqueline has messaged viewers and has spoken about Joe cheating on Teresa on twitter several times.) This is not something I would make up because I’m not the type of person to do that. Jacqueline and I even have a mutual friend who was going through something with her husband and Jacqueline told our friend how to track her husband through GPS and how to put a memory card on there phone so that she would have access to her husbands stuff and I was shocked because I didn’t even know you could do half of that! And she knew all that stuff because she would do that with Chris.
Did you ever tell Jacqueline that Joe cheated on you?
I never told Jacqueline any of that. If I had proof of Joe cheated on me, I wouldn’t be with him. I’m just not made that way. I know some people would stick with their husbands even if they did that but to each their own. It would be unfortunate but I would definitely not stay with Joe.
Why do you think Melissa and Joe Gorga are really moving?
I really don’t want to comment on why they are probably moving but I do think it’s sad that Melissa is using my children and me as an excuse as to why she’s moving. Melissa and I have never ran into each other so if she’s worried about seeing me, she won’t see me anywhere. Our children won’t even be going to the same school with each other till 6th grade so that’s 5 years that she has that she can still live in the house if that really is the issue. My brother has made a studio for her and is even making a pool yet they are moving out of this “dream home” because of me and my children? If that were really the case, she would go on another show and wouldn’t be on the same show with me. I just think it’s a poor excuse to use me as to why she’s moving. It just doesn’t make sense. She claims I was torturing her for 8 years then says she moved near me so we could be close? Now she says she’s moving because she wants nothing to do with my family? None of it adds up or makes any sense but if she wants to tell the world that she’s moving because of me, so be it. We know that’s not the real reason.
Do you think Kathy’s apology to your parents were genuine?
I appreciate the fact that she apologized but I still think it was disrespectful that she could carelessly talk about my parents who have been nothing but good to her. I think by her attacking my parents it just defines her character on how she really is.
How do your parents feel about what Kathy had to say about them at the reunion?
My father refuses to watch the show so he doesn’t know what was said about him and my mother has been out of town so she hasn’t seen it yet but I know she won’t be happy when she watches it.
Did Caroline Manzo really tell you that Jacqueline Laurita was a stripper?
Yes she did. Caroline has told me many things about Jacqueline. Caroline used to even tell me that Jacqueline doesn’t take care of her kids. When CJ was born and growing up, Caroline told me Jacqueline was really into herself, into working out and was basically more into herself then she was her child. Caroline used to complain that Jacqueline never cooked and thought she was a horrible mother.
Did you ever tell Caroline or Jacqueline that Melissa was a stripper?
I never once told them that Melissa was a stripper. I have heard those rumors and they heard them as well but I never said she was a stripper. I will admit that I did say that Melissa copied me on a few things and it was true. She did copy me prior to getting on the show and that’s all I ever said about her. I was also upset that they were coming onto the show and both Jacqueline and Caroline knew that but I never said she was a stripper. She has my last name. She’s a Gorga. I wouldn’t want people to think my sister-in-law is a stripper especially if it’s not true. That’s only hurting my family.
Is there any truth to the recent rumors that Gia has been bullied because of you appearing on The Real Housewives?
Absolutely not true. Gia is very loved and everyone is so sweet to her. Gia gets along with everyone at school and has never been bullied about me being on the show. She is a really happy girl and just the other day, Gia’s friends mother ran into me and told me what a sweet little girl Gia is which makes me proud to hear as a mother. Thank God everyone is so friendly to Gia and I just laugh at stories like that because its obviously untrue.
Does your brother talk to your kids anymore?
No he does not.
I know it was Gabriella’s birthday last week and Melissa is her God mother. Did Melissa wish her a Happy Birthday?
No she did not. It was Audriana’s birthday last month and Melissa did call and leave a voicemail wishing her a Happy Birthday but she did not call Gabriella wishing her a Happy Birthday which I found odd considering Audriana is really young and won’t understand but Gabriella knows Melissa is her God mother and is older and does understand. Gabriella actually asked me if her God mother called to wish her a Happy Birthday and I just told Gabriella that Melissa probably did but that I missed the phone call just so Gabriella wouldn’t feel bad because like I said, she does understand Melissa is her God mother and she’s at that age where if she knew Melissa didn’t call, it would hurt her especially since Melissa has called to wish all the others a Happy Birthday.
Wow I can’t believe Caroline would throw out that Teresa talks about Melissa when she herself has spoken badly about Jacqueline! It also hurt a little to hear that Melissa didn’t wish Gabriella her God daughter a Happy Birthday. Thoughts on the interview?
