EXCLUSIVES Jennifer Aydin Let's Discuss: Margaret Josephs Melissa Gorga Teresa Giudice The Real Housewives of New Jersey - RHONJ

AllAboutTRH EXCLUSIVE: Melissa Gorga Has Been Aware Of Cheating Rumor That Came From Margaret Prior To Filming But Waited To Blame Teresa Giudice Days Before Her Wedding

When Joe Gorga & Melissa Gorga made a statement that they wouldn’t attend Teresa Giudice’s wedding days before – everyone wanted to know why. We exclusively gave you details on what happened that led to their decision. It involved Margaret telling her former BFF Laura Lee Jansen that Melissa Gorga allegedly cheated on Joe Gorga with a man named Nick Barrotta. Margaret told Laura in confidence, and unfortunately, they had a fallout. Laura was upset with Margaret, so she asked to meet up with Jennifer & Teresa and let them know about this rumor. No one believed the rumor, but the ladies were shocked Margaret was saying this. Teresa & Louie end up telling her brother off camera and makes him aware that Margaret has said this.

We later find out that during filming of the season finale – the rumor gets brought up after Jennifer tells the newest housewife, Danielle Cabral, who later confronts Melissa on camera. Melissa blames the entire thing on Teresa, and Joe Gorga ends up charging at Louie.

We are now exclusively learning that Melissa has known about this rumor since February! Sources close to production tell us,

“Teresa & Louie confronted her brother Joe about the rumor that Margaret had told her BFF about earlier this year prior to filming off camera. Teresa never believed it but wanted Joe to know. Joe went back home and told his wife everything. Melissa then called up Margaret and confronted her. Melissa did not want this on camera as she knew her children would see this. Everyone on the cast except the newbies have known about this situation since prior to filming. Melissa never confronted Teresa about the rumor or the fact that she spoke to Joe Gorga about it. It wasn’t until the season finale that the new housewife Danielle tells Melissa what Jennifer told her and Melissa immediately goes after Teresa and blames her for this entire rumor accusing her of being behind it. That then causes Joe Gorga to charge at Louie to the point that he has to be restrained. They both then make the decision they won’t be coming to the wedding even though they were aware of this rumor since prior to filming and never confronted Teresa on/off camera until the season finale a few days before her wedding. Teresa had no idea that the rumor was going to be on camera as she was distracted with her wedding and it was Jennifer who told newbie Danielle on camera.”

Do you think Melissa & Joe should have skipped the wedding?
