As we previously reported, in May 2022, Joe and Melissa did a podcast episode where they claimed Teresa owes them a “thank you” for participating in her prison special, Teresa Checks-In, with Joe Giudice, which they claim kept food on the Giudice family’s table. “How about ‘Thank you?’ Because when she was in prison, Joe [Giudice] wasn’t working at all either. So they had no income. If we weren’t on the show, their kids would not still be living in that house and have food and have whatever they had,” Joe said on the Say It Ain’t Joe episode of Melissa’s On Display podcast. Melissa added, “Joe Giudice needed to make money on that show (special), and he needed someone to film with, and here we were – we jumped in so that the Teresa went to prison special was able to be made because he had us to bounce off of.”
Then at the season 12 reunion, Melissa claimed that when Teresa was in prison, she was the one who was there for her girls. According to Melissa, she helped Teresa’s mom take the girls to their activities like dance. Teresa shut down the claim and told Andy to ask her girls for the truth. The Real Housewives of New Jersey airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. EST.

The Gorgas, Melissa and Joe, claimed that they were the reason Teresa Giudice’s daughters had food on their table while Teresa was in prison. This claim upset the Giudice family, particularly Teresa’s four daughters, who felt that the Gorgas were lying.
Gabriella is known for being private and rarely appearing on the show. Her decision to speak out on camera shows how upset she is about the Gorgas’ false claim that they were there for her and her sisters while their mother was in prison.
In a podcast episode, Joe and Melissa claimed that Teresa owes them a “thank you” for participating in her prison special, Teresa Checks-In. They argued that without their involvement, the special wouldn’t have been possible, and the Giudice family wouldn’t have had the financial support they needed during that time.
