The Real Housewives of New Jersey - RHONJ

Teresa Giudice Claims Melissa Gorga ‘Begged’ Andy Cohen to get on RHONJ

Differing of opinions!

Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga’s nearly decade-old feud reared its ugly head on the Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip.

During episode three, the sister-in-laws rehashed their conflicting stories on how Melissa joined the Real Housewives of New Jersey cast during season 3 of the franchise.

“Andy [Cohen] called me and said, ‘Your sister-in-law won’t stop DMing me. She wants to get on the show,’” Teresa said after RHONY’s Ramona Singer brought up the sensitive topic.

However, Melissa remembers it differently.

“I never DMed him,” Melissa told the RHUGT cast which includes Kenya Moore, Cynthia Bailey, Luann de Lesseps, and Kyle Richards. “That’s what I’m telling you.”

Melissa explains that producers reached out to her on social media and expressed interest in her becoming a Housewife.

“They inboxed me,” she said. “They still reach out to all of my friends now, still looking for [new ‘Housewives’].”

Teresa noted that her main issue was hearing about Melissa’s casting from Andy and not her sister-in-law.

“You and I were not friends at all. We weren’t speaking,” Melissa fired back.

The RHONJ OG added that she initially wasn’t supportive of Melissa and Joe joining RHONJ during season 3 in 2011.

“To tell you the truth, I can’t remember why we weren’t talking — unless they were just mad that I wasn’t putting them on the show,” Teresa said to which Melissa replied, “We did not want to be on the show that way.”

“I was like, ‘I don’t want to fight with my family.’ To me, family’s everything,” Teresa quipped. “Look what happened!”

“When they called to interview me, [Bravo] then told you that,” Melissa told Teresa. “I didn’t know if we were going to do it or not. Of course, we interviewed for the show and of course, they wanted us. It’s a family show. Caroline was on the show, Dina was on the show. They want sister-in-laws. That’s what they want.”

Melissa added that she and Teresa “will never agree.”

“She has her story. I have my story,” she said. “She’s never going to admit it.”

The Real Housewives of New Jersey will return to Bravo in February 2022.
