Expect some MAJOR “same-city” drama during season one of the Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip.
In a new interview with Us Weekly, Melissa Gorga reveals that the Housewives from the same cities got into plenty of drama while filming RHUGT in Turks and Caicos.
“I was just curious to see if the different cities were going to kind of team up together,” Melissa admitted. “And what was interesting to me was that what I saw instead of the cities that came together in pairs teaming up together, it was almost, like, that’s where a lot of the conflict lied was between each other.”
She confesses that she and sister-in-law/Real Housewives of New Jersey costar Teresa Giudice were no exception to the same-city drama.
“It always comes down — when we’re gonna break the fourth wall — then it turns into like, ‘How did you get on the show?’ And then it turns into a conversation that Teresa and I will never agree on,” Melissa said. “So we did have that conversation again, and I guess we’ll have to see how that plays out. But it’s one of those things where I just think Teresa refuses to this day to accept the fact that I am on this show and in a fair manner that I am on the show.”
Meanwhile, RHOA’s Cynthia Bailey knew there was an “issue” between Melissa and Teresa and admits she was super interested to see their family dynamics play out first hand.
“I honestly never really watched Jersey. … That goes a little deeper than going back and forth with someone who’s not in your family,” she noted. “If you are having issues with your family member, you really have to see them still, like, all the time. I knew [it] would be difficult for me, so long and short of it, I was definitely curious to see exactly what the issue was since Melissa is married to Teresa’s brother and they’re not going anywhere anytime soon and they have to see each other at least at Christmas, Thanksgiving.”
The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip premieres Nov. 18 on Peacock.
