Melissa Gorga is ready to move on from her recent drama with sister-in-law Teresa Giudice.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey star tells Page Six that she’s sick of the family drama and just wants to make her pre-wedding feud with Teresa in the rearview mirror.
“I am looking to put it all behind me,” she admitted on the red carpet at the 2022 MTV VMAs Sunday night. “We just finished [filming]. We just wrapped, and I need a break. Let’s just put it that way.”
“There’s just a lot of answers. I feel like people want to know why about the wedding and about all these things, and you’ll get a lot of answers,” Melissa teased of the drama to come on season 13 of RHONJ.
Melissa and her husband, Joe Gorga, skipped Teresa’s August 6 wedding to Louie Ruelas following a fight at the final filming event for season 13.
The fight started over an allegation that Melissa allegedly cheated on Joe with a man named Nick Barrotta. Melissa blames the entire thing on Teresa, and Joe ends up charging at Louie. Get all the scoop on the drama between Melissa/Joe and Teresa HERE and HERE. Oh, yeah, and HERE, plus HERE.
As a result, Melissa and Joe decided to skip Teresa and Louie’s wedding.
Melissa addressed their decision on a recent episode of her On Display podcast.
“Sometimes when things are too toxic, and you try over and over and over again, and it just keeps coming back around to the same thing … even if it’s family, you have to let it go,” Melissa said.
On the other hand, Teresa recently made it clear that she was “fine” with Melissa and Joe missing out on her big day.
“Listen, I found out a few days before my wedding that they weren’t coming, and I’m totally fine with it,” the Real Housewives of New Jersey OG said on the August 19 episode of her new podcast, Namaste, B$tches.
RHONJ will return for season 13 in early 2023.
