Joe Giudice is finally clapping back at his brother-in-law Joey Gorga!
This comes after months and months of Joey badmouthing Joe on the Real Housewives of New Jersey.
Earlier this year, Joey and his wife Melissa Gorga appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. While appearing on WWHL, Joey addressed some of the comments his sister Teresa Giudice’s estranged husband made on social media.
“Joe Giudice made some veiled comments on social media,” Andy asked, “saying ‘someone’s mouth can lie, but their eyes always tell the truth.’ Do you think this was directed at you because of your comments about him at the reunion?”
“Yes,” Joey replied. “Yes, definitely.”
Melissa then piped in, adding, “He was annoyed that he said that, but I feel like he was just being honest.”
“I’m being honest,” Joey added. “The truth hurts. He doesn’t like to hear it. I’ve never spoke up. I’ve always kept my mouth shut, right? Over the years, pretty much. It’s my sister. I have to speak up. I’m her only brother.”
In the interview, Joey also claimed that Teresa had started the divorce proceedings and that “the paperwork” was “almost done.”
Now, months later, Joe is firing back, and he has a lot to say, including a warning for his brother-in-law.
“I’ve had enough of staying silent in regards to Joe Gorga and his perpetual need to spout crap about me and my marriage as if his is ‘so perfect,’” Joe told Celeb Magazine.
“A person’s mouth can lie, but their eyes always tell the truth,” he reiterated.
“Who will get the last laugh as [the] truth continues to come out, or should more truths come out? The truth hurts, right, Joe? I know certain people don’t like to hear it and don’t forget, I know things too.”
“You can only spark a fire so many times before it engulfs in flames,” he added, hinting that a significant feud could be brewing.
“Teresa and I are working really hard to put the kids first, and that’s our primary focus,” Joe explained. “So for you, Joe, to continue spouting your mouth is not really doing anything to help your sister or her children.”
Joe then warned Joey: “I suggest you sit down and shut up. I’ve really had enough. I want to go forward with our lives.”
The Real Housewives of New Jersey will return to Bravo in late 2020 or early 2021.
