The claws are out in the Garden State!
It’s not only Margaret Josephs and Teresa Giudice who are battling it out on this week’s episode of the Real Housewives of New Jersey.
Melissa Gorga and Jennifer Aydin chime in on Marge and Tre’s drama, and naturally, they butt heads. The two quickly flip the switch and begin to rehash their past Instagram drama, which occurred as they wrapped season 11.
Their war of words quickly turns physical and ends up leading to a physical altercation.
Let’s dive into the drama. It all begins when Melissa and Margaret call out Jennifer for attempting to prove that the rumors about Evan Goldschneider’s alleged cheating were true.
“Why do you want to hurt someone else?” Marge asks Jennifer. Teresa jumps in and insists Jennifer isn’t trying to hurt anyone.
“Don’t defend her!” Margaret tells Teresa. “She’s indefensible!” Melissa concurs; she then accuses Teresa of demanding loyalty from her family but not giving it in return.
“Let this girl dig her own hole. You ask for loyalty; you give loyalty back! If she asks a question about Evan, she’s not digging? If someone asks about Louie, they’re digging?” Melissa quips.
The drama pivots then to Melissa and Jennifer’s 2021 Instagram feud, where both RHONJ stars took shots at each other. Melissa called Jennifer “fake and conniving” while Jennifer dubbed the Gorgas “crooked.”
“She sounds like a little f–king hater,” Melissa says.
“I’m not a f–king hater!” Jennifer claps back. “I don’t really give a f–k what you say.”
“You feel like a hater. You called my husband a crook!” Melissa notes referring to Jennifer’s Instagram comments about her husband, Joe Gorga.
“Let me tell you something. I don’t know anything about you,” Jennifer explains. “I really don’t, truth be told. Listen, I want to address the ‘crooked’ thing. It’s f–king hearsay, and it’s out there.”
Jennifer insists she only wrote those nasty comments in retaliation. She claims Melissa’s the one who started the drama by calling her out ahead of the season 11 reunion.
“You attacked me that day for no reason! It wasn’t just a caption; it was a f–king novel,” Jennifer says before pointing to Joe, adding, “Even he, little bitch girl, came in and commented. I wanted to respond in a way that stung.”
When a baffled Melissa asks Jennifer what she’s talking about, Jennifer screams that her Instagram post was “retaliation.”
“That’s disgusting,” Melissa shouts as she gets up out of her seat. Jennifer does the same, and the two get into each other’s faces and continue screaming.
The two then entangle their hands and begin pushing each other while Joe and Dolores Catania attempt to break up the fight.
