Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice got married over the weekend and one thing that was noticeably shocking was that her brother Joe Gorga & his wife Melissa did not attend. So what exactly happened that would make Joe Gorga not attend his sisters wedding? We got all the exclusive details!
Sources close to production tell us exclusively what happened saying, “It all started when Margaret and her former BFF Laura Lee Jansen had a fall out. Laura was upset with Margaret so she asked to meet up with Jennifer Aydin and Teresa Giudice. She let both of them know that Margaret isn’t so innocent off camera. Laura revealed that Margaret told her that Melissa Gorga allegedly cheated on Joe Gorga by making out with a man named Nick Barotta and that she saw it. Again – Margaret had no intention of it being out there. She had told her BFF Laura in confidence before they fell out. Both Jennifer and Teresa didn’t believe the rumor but couldn’t believe Margaret was saying this. Teresa and Louie then confronted Joe Gorga OFF CAMERA before the season began filming because they wanted to make him aware of it and nothing came out of it. Teresa never was going to bring it up on camera but she wanted Joe to know this is what Margaret had said.”
Our source continues, “fast forward to filming – every one makes peace and this rumor doesn’t come out. Margaret is aware this information is out there and she goes after Jennifer Aydin yet again. This time calling her a drug addict. That’s when Jennifer tells newest housewife Danielle Cabral what Margaret has said about Melissa. Danielle then confronts Melissa and lets her know this rumor is out there and that Jennifer and no one else believes it but it came from Margaret’s former BFF.”
So why exactly would this make them not come to Teresa’s wedding? Our source explains, “A few days before the wedding – they filmed the season finale of New Jersey and Melissa blamed Teresa for the entire thing. Louie was upset that Teresa was the one being blamed and Joe Gorga ends up charging at Louie to the point that he had to be restrained. The next day they make the announcement that they are not coming to the wedding.”
And there you have it! All of this will play out on season 13 of New Jersey but it sounds like the Gorga’s and Giudice’s have no intention of having a relationship moving forward.
