Melissa Gorga reacted to the news that she won’t be a bridesmaid in Teresa Giudice’s upcoming wedding to Louie Ruelas.
“I’m not going to lie: I’ve had a lot of news outlets reaching out to me. Since everyone wants to know how I feel, let’s just answer it,” Melissa said on Thursday’s episode of her On Display podcast.
“Yes, I watched Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, and I did find out on TV that I’m not gonna be in Teresa’s wedding and I’m not a bridesmaid, which I’m okay with, I’m fine with. ‘I understand, to each their own.” she continued, adding that she “assumed” she wouldn’t make the cut for Teresa’s bridal party.
She added, “I guess my big question is, you know, are her new sister-in-laws in the wedding? Is it like a no-fam wedding other than the four daughters, her four beautiful daughters, and a couple of her friends? If that’s the case, then I think that makes perfect sense.”
Melissa says she’s “very happy” for Teresa and Louie despite the diss.
“I love to see her smile when she’s with Louie,” Melissa said. “So whatever she decides, it’s her wedding, and I will be fine with it.”
“I wish her nothing but happiness. I’m very happy that she’s happy. I love to see her smile when she’s with Louie. Whatever she decides, it’s her wedding, and I’ll be fine with it. Joe and I have been here for a long time. We’ve always backed her up, and…we want her happy, and we want it to be good,” she explained.
