Melissa Gorga thinks her sister-in-law Teresa Giudice is lying about never watching the Real Housewives of New Jersey until recently.
Teresa recently appeared on Carlos King’s Reality With the King podcast, where she first admitted to never watching RHONJ.
“I never watched the show because I couldn’t stand watching, and you know what? I think that’s a blessing in disguise,” Teresa confessed.
On the December 6 episode of Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen, Teresa elaborated on recently starting to watch old seasons of RHONJ.
The RHONJ OG admitted that she was shocked to learn all the nasty things her brother, Joe Gorga, and Melissa said about her over the years.
“It’s so hurtful,” she admitted. “It’s so painful. I’m glad I didn’t watch it before because if I would have watched it, I don’t know what would have happened.”
“Seeing what my brother and Melissa, even my cousin, were saying about me at the time – just so painful. It’s crazy how the truth comes out like ten years later,” she added.
Well, on the December 15 episode of Melissa’s On Display podcast, she called BS on Teresa’s claims that she never watched RHONJ.
“Teresa was on Watch What Happens Live, and she was bringing up ten years ago and that she’s now watching all the old [RHONJ] clips,” Melissa told co-star Margaret Josephs, who was a guest on her podcast.
“And I’m like, ‘oh, that makes sense as to why all the hater accounts are saying exactly what she’s saying,” Melissa added before noting, “I don’t believe that Teresa never watched the show.”
Melissa says she’s not buying Teresa’s claims because the Housewives used to have to write a detailed blog post for each episode of the show.
“We would have to recap the whole entire episode, word for word,” she explained, adding that Teresa “recapped everything. I don’t know who was writing her blogs, then, if she never watched any of the episodes. It makes zero sense.”
She continued, “You’re digging, reaching for anything because you have nothing to be mad at. I would respect more [by] saying, ‘Listen, I just don’t want you in my life. I don’t have to make up a thousand reasons as to why you’re a sh–ty person, why I don’t like you, and why I’m hurt.”
Melissa then insisted that her sister-in-law should be more upfront and genuine with her fans, saying, “Why do we have to hurt each other and say bad things? That’s what I don’t get.”
She then blames Teresa for the recent hate she has been getting on social media.
“They are wasting their time, and it’s kind of sad, but I do see a little bit of, like, the old school past. Like, ‘let’s go full-blown and attack,” Melissa quipped.
AllAboutTRH decided to fact-check some of Melissa’s claims, and surprise, surprise, Melissa’s allegations have already been disproven multiple times.
Fact check: Teresa was accused by the cast of not writing her own blogs because everyone knew she didn’t watch the show. Melissa even accused Teresa of this. Andy Cohen has stated publicly that he knows for a fact Teresa didn’t watch previous seasons and has called her out on it several times.
