The day has finally come! Season thirteen premiered the Real Housewives of New Jersey and episode one did not disappoint. In the episode, RHONJ star Teresa Giudice opened up on why she didn’t ask sister-in-law Melissa Gorga to walk in her wedding. “I felt like my brother and Melissa should have said to you, ‘Nobody speaks badly about Louie and that’s why I didn’t ask her to be in my wedding.”
Discussing the texts from last season, Teresa said, “Margaret, when I texted Melissa, ‘Please don’t talk about Louie,’ what does she do? Come out and read you guys the texts,” further explaining it proved Melissa did not have her back.
During the episode, Melissa Gorga and Joe Gorga also spoke out on how they haven’t heard from Teresa Giudice since a text Melissa sent Teresa after the season twelve reunion filmed was left on read. Melissa shared two text messages cropping one and making sure not to share Teresa Giudice’s response.
In her confessional, Melissa Gorga explains that Teresa Giudice not choosing her to walk in the wedding is a big “f you.” And in a scene between Melissa and Joe Gorga, Joe Gorga says the night of the season twelve reunion showed his sisters true colors while Melissa adds that is exactly why she texted her after filming wrapped on March 31st writing, “I’m just letting you know, I’m truly fine with not being in the wedding. I donate ant to bring it up again within out family moving forward. I wish you all the best. I’m not going to get mad at you for what Jennifer does and you shouldn’t get mad at me for what Margaret does. Goodnight.”
Melissa makes sure to note that Teresa Giudice never responded but days later both Melissa and Joe were invited to Teresa’s 50th birthday party that would be in Tulum without bravo cameras. Melissa pointed out that only Teresa’s “closest” people were invited. Melissa claims that when she got the text of the invite she had not heard from Teresa in two months submitting another text message from May 4th that was cropped to not show the entire message, “Teresa, I texted you driving home from the reunion and you never answered back until now,” the text said.
