What are the audience’s thoughts on Teddi Mellencamp’s opinion on the drama between Teresa Giudice and Joe and Melissa Gorga?Ahead of the season 13 premiere of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, Teddi Mellencamp and Tamra Judge gave their two cents on the feud between the Gorgas and Teresa on their Two T’s in a Pod podcast. Tamra and Teddi criticized the RHONJ stars for how they are handling their family drama. “I feel like the problem here is, both of them, both sets only speak publicly about these things,” the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum said. “If you really have it in your heart to want to fix things, yes, of course, you are going to do your job, you are going to talk about it on your podcast, you are going to talk about it on the show, but you also would be like having a private conversation to try to work at it, but I think that they have both been doing this show for so long, they’re blinded by wanting to fix the relationship and solely focusing on like how can we get press, how can this be drama, how can we make TV.” Teddi then noted that she would never do a reality TV show with her siblings. “My sister is my best friend, but she is truly the only one that if she says something to me and it has like a little dig to it, I will carry it around, like my heart breaks,” Teddi confessed. Tamra went on to compare Teresa’s drama with the Gorgas to her falling out with co-star and longtime BFF Shannon Beador. She noted that she and Shannon stopped being friends after she exited the Real Housewives of Orange County in January 2020. “It’s family, and you love them, and that’s why you get hurt; if you don’t care about someone you don’t know says something, some random person, you don’t care about them, you get over it really quick,” Tamra said. “I mean, that’s how you know who your real friends are on the show, like if they say something when you’re filming and you are like, ‘yeah, whatever,’ but if you really care about somebody, that’s when you really get into fights, that’s like Shannon and I when I left the show, you know, we got into it publicly because I really cared about her and my heart was broken.” Meanwhile, Melissa recently revealed whether or not she and Joe would be watching Teresa and Louie’s TV wedding after skipping the event in real life. “It’s pretty much the finale of our show, so I’m sure I will watch,” Melissa told E! News. “I don’t know if Joe can watch; it is hurtful to him, if I’m being honest. It’s so sad that he’s her only living relative, and somehow, he’s not there. It was just awful the way it went down.” Melissa insists that the decision to skip Louie and Teresa’s wedding was the “accumulation” of many issues that she kept quiet about for most of the season “for the family—because [Teresa] was getting married.” “We were like, ‘We’re not going to throw a bomb in here right before her wedding,'” she explained. “When it does come to light, then I had to call it out.” She notes: “There is something that was the icing on the cake that really hurt us.” But Melissa and Teresa’s relationship was already fractured going into season 13. According to Melissa, she and Teresa did not speak at all between filming the season 12 reunion and the beginning of filming for season 13. “When we were going to start filming again, she suddenly texted me,” Melissa said. “It’s just like, ‘We’re going to start filming again, hi.’ I’m like, ‘No, doesn’t work for me anymore.'” Additionally, Melissa addressed the much-teased physical altercation between Louie and Joe. “They do not get into it a physical fight, thank God. You don’t have to worry about that. That’s just the tension like it’s crazy,” Melissa said. The Real Housewives of New Jersey returns to Bravo for season 13 on February 7 at 9 p.m. EST.
