Joe Giudice may not watch the Real Housewives of New Jersey, but that doesn’t mean he’s not aware of what Melissa Gorga and her husband Joe Gorga say about him on the show.
In a new interview with Us Weekly, Juicy Joe tells Melissa and Joe to “kiss my butt” amid their drama with him on RHONJ.
“They’re just ignorant, and I just don’t pay attention to them,” Joe explained. “They’re irrelevant. You know what I mean? In reality, they oughta kiss my butt for being on that show … they never would be on that show if it wasn’t for me.”
The bad blood between Joe and the Gorgas has intensified in the last year or so. Joe and Melissa both slammed Joe during season 11.
“I’m mad at the son of a bitch for what he did to you!” Joe Gorga screamed at his sister, Teresa Giudice after she stuck up for her ex-husband. “He ruined everything, and he put you in jail. My wife is a f—king hundred percent right! You gonna defend him?”
“F—k that piece of s—t,” he yelled. “He put my mother in a f—king grave, so I’m supposed to f—king like him?”
Meanwhile, on the April 21 episode of RHONJ, Melissa told co-star Jackie Goldschneider that Teresa was unhappy in her marriage for at least 10 years.
“Teresa held a lot behind those walls,” she said in her confessional interview. “She was always on the defense trying to, like, back up what her marriage was, what her life was.”
Joe Giudice admits he’s NEVER watched RHONJ even when he was on it, but he still catches wind of his former brother and sister-in-law’s comments.
“They always have something stupid to say,” he said. “It’s not like they ever say anything that even makes any sense. If half the stuff they said was true, it’d be alright, but everything they say is just a lie.”
He notes that he doesn’t think he’ll ever get an apology from Joe and Melissa but admits it doesn’t bother him.
“I don’t want anything from them,” he said. “It doesn’t matter. They’re in the past, and I’ll probably never see them again, which is good.”
RHONJ airs on Wednesdays at 9 pm EST on BRAVO.
