The Juicy Scoop host recently revealed that Melissa wasn’t happy that former Real Housewives of New Jersey producer Carlos King came on her podcast in June, backing up Teresa’s claim that she had no clue Melissa was joining the show ahead of season 3.
According to Heather, Melissa messaged her that she was hurt to see Heather, Carlos, and Teresa promote the lie that she came on RHONJ behind Teresa’s back.
Melissa insists that she told Teresa that Bravo and RHONJ producers were coming to her shore house to do a casting interview.
“I wrote back to her, ‘What does it even really matter?'” Heather noted. Carlos chimed in, questioning what Melissa is mad over.
Naturally, Teresa weighed in on Melissa’s latest attempt to rewrite history. The longtime reality TV star called her sister-in-law and co-star a “liar” in a comment captured by Comments By Bravo.
He then notes that “Melissa’s story has changed a couple of times,” especially when she’s confronted with the truth. Carlos says that Melissa claims Teresa knew she and her husband, Joe Gorga, were joining RHONJ, then she switches her story to say that Teresa was aware that they were auditioning for the show.
Carlos adds that Teresa “was never jealous of Melissa joining the show”; instead, she didn’t want her family drama to play out on TV for the sake of her parents because she saw what it did to the Manzo/Laurita family during seasons one and two of RHONJ.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey returns for season 13 on February 7.
