The Real Housewives of New Jersey - RHONJ

Joe Gorga Doubles Down on Claim he and Melissa Gorga Deserve Credit For Helping Keep RHONJ Going While Teresa Was in Prison

Doubling down!

Joe Gorga recently appeared on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen alongside the rest of the Real Housewives of New Jersey men.

During the appearance, Joe addressed the recent claim he made while appearing on his wife Melissa Gorga’s On Display podcast.

Joe and Melissa said that Teresa should thank them for maintaining RHONJ while she served nearly a year in prison. The RHONJ couple claims that their filming Teresa Checks In with Joe Giudice allowed the Giudice girls to stay in their Montville, NJ home.

He explained: “How about ‘Thank you?’ Because when she was in prison, Joe [Giudice] wasn’t working at all either. So they had no income. If we weren’t on the show, their kids would not still be living in that house and have food and have whatever they had.”

Melissa added, “Joe Giudice needed to make money on that show (special), and he needed someone to film with, and here we were – we jumped in so that the Teresa went to prison special was able to be made because he had us to bounce off of.”

On WWHL, Joe clarified his statements claiming that his nieces would have been homeless if it weren’t for him and Melissa.

“I didn’t mean homeless,” he admitted before clarifying, “What I meant was we kept the show going. We went through a downfall.”

Andy Cohen was quick to note: “We did shut production for a while until Teresa came out [of prison].”

“Correct,” Joe replied.

He added that he and Melissa have had their own “storyline” now show and that his role was “epic.”

“This Joe has been epic because of the family drama. Correct?” Joe asked Andy, to which the WWHL replied, “That you’re involved with. There you go.”

RHONJ will return for season 13 in late 2022 or early 2023.
