Ooof, the drama went DOWN in the Garden State on Wednesday!
Before part one of the Real Housewives of New Jersey season 11 reunion aired, Melissa Gorga and Jennifer Aydin went at it on Instagram!
Melissa and Jennifer got into an EPIC social media feud starting the morning. They then continued to take swipes at each other all day long. It’s safe to say these two will NEVER be friends!
It all started when Melissa posted about the RHONJ reunion. In the post, Melissa slammed Jennifer, calling Jennifer “fake and conniving.” She also claims that Jen has “lots of skeletons in the closet!”
“Notice I posted everyone except for one person who I feel is truly happy when family and friends are divided,” Melissa wrote. “Probably because she would throw her own mother under the bus for TV. Or if it would make Teresa happy. I’ve been on the show a long time, and I know fake and conniving when I see it. When you don’t come for someone at all, and they are constantly trying to put you down and trying to cause riffs in your relationships, that’s a huge red flag, ENVY BABY! They might want to try to be the fun, tipsy one like you, but they fail and just look sloppy. Lots of skeletons in the closet over there. I’m nice until I’m not. Pay attention, everyone- you will see it.”
Jennifer then clapped back with a post of her own.
“Take a good look at what unbothered looks like. I’m on this show because of me- not because [of] my sister-in-law or a more entertaining husband,” Jennifer wrote. “My husband is a class act who respects women and would never stoop low for the cameras. I guess people envy what they don’t have – I share real and authentic stories, not fake, made-up ones. And I see that some people are threatened by that. You can take your “sloppy” comments and run with it all you want – hold on to it for dear life- ya got nothing else. Your group is infested with a snake that talks behind all your backs, and you’re just Salty…And Boring to Boot! So careful with all that reach, you’re gonna pull a muscle.”
Melissa then commented on Jennifer’s post and claimed that she has been “saying the same shit since you got on” the show.
“This is getting old- was expecting this. You’ve been saying the same shit since you got on. Got anything new?! I think you’re the one that uses everyone around you for [a] storyline. Let’s be real. YOUR WHOLE FAMILY. Nothing ever about you. Got anything new?! Not trashy CLASSY & still going strong. A lot harder in the HW’s world than being the Hot Mess!! GET IT?!! It’s been 11 years for me. Kiss my ass,” Melissa said.
The bickering didn’t end there.
Jennifer then told Melissa she only “got on” RHONJ “because of Teresa, and that kills u!!”
She then said, “Your fake baby and sister that never was – and oh wait- divorce.”
“All they see is your self-absorbed, obsessed, envious behavior,” Jennifer continued. “Go embarrass your daughter some more cause you and your crooked family got nothing else.”
In a separate post, Jennifer wrote, “Ok – that was a low blow. I’m done now, and I want to enjoy watching the reunion with everyone else.”
The Real Housewives of New Jersey airs on Bravo Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET.
