The main topic of discussion in the premiere episode of Season thirteen of Real Housewives of New Jersey is Teresa Giudice’s decision to not ask her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga to walk in her wedding and the subsequent fallout between them.
Teresa Giudice felt that her brother and Melissa should have defended her and her relationship with Louie by not allowing anyone to speak badly about him. She believed that Melissa did not have her back, which led to her decision of not including Melissa in her wedding.
According to the episode, Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga have not been in contact since the reunion of Season twelve. Melissa reached out to Teresa after the reunion, but her text was left on read. However, both Melissa and Joe Gorga were later invited to Teresa’s 50th birthday party, indicating a possible reconciliation.
