Melissa addressed these rumors during a November 2018 appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.
During her appearance on WWHL, Melissa confirmed that she and her husband Joe Gorga do not have a relationship with the Wakile family.
Melissa explained that Kathy “felt like everyone should’ve helped her stay” on the show which caused “tensions” between them.
However, Kathy now says that’s not true at all.
“Well, to be quite honest, my life revolved a lot more and not only about the show, and theirs is about the show,” Kathy told HollywoodLife about her non-existent relationship with Melissa. “When I say show, I don’t mean just show, TV show. Now, you know, people’s true colors come out,” Kathy continued, explaining, that Melissa “has her version, and I have the truth. You know, it’s all good.”
As for Melissa’s claims that she wanted help from the cast to remain on RHONJ, Kathy says, “No, that’s ridiculous. She’s not in charge of the show. Then, for her to think that people would actually believe something like that, that’s ridiculous. She didn’t have that much power. In her head, she has that much power, but in real life, no, not so much.”
Kathy went on to say that her life without the Bravo cameras is “really peaceful, and happy, and it’s very fulfilled.”
