In a preview of episode three, fans see Teresa and Melissa continue to hash out their opposing views on the seating arrangements at Teresa and Louie’s engagement party.
While hashing out their issues in episode three, Teresa tells Melissa that she hasn’t felt the love from her and Joe when it comes to her relationship with Louie.
“In my heart, it felt like you weren’t rooting for Louie and I,” Teresa confessed.
This shocks Melissa, who insists that “nobody [has] opened their arms more than Joe, and I did to Louie.”
“I wanna see your happy ending,” Melissa continues. “I’ve been here to see everything. I wanna see that.”
Melissa’s words touch Teresa, who replies, “Thank you. I feel it. Swear, I feel that.”
The On Display podcast host adds, “I’m good with the engagement party. What I wasn’t good with is if I looked like a liar so that I had to correct and I’m fine not being in the wedding.”
Teresa then asks Melissa to be a bridesmaid in her wedding. AllAboutTRH was the first to reveal this news in August 2022.
At the time, a source close to production told AllAboutTRH exclusively:
“Teresa initially was going to have only a few people walk in her wedding. When season 13 started, everyone had made peace, and all was going well. Teresa decided to ask Dolores, Jennifer & Melissa to walk in the wedding. Teresa admitted it was late for her to ask, but she would love for her close girlfriends to be by her side, and it was a peace offering for Melissa so they can just move forward. Melissa declined, saying she is not walking and Teresa should stick to her initial decision.”
“Listen, I mean, do you wanna be in the wedding? I mean, if you would love to be a bridesmaid,” Teresa declares.
A shocked Melissa asks, “Why are you acting like you do me a favor?”
“I’m not, I would love for you to be a bridesmaid in my in my wedding. I’m being for real,” Teresa insists.
Despite Teresa’s pleas, Melissa says she “would never go back. I’m okay not being in it. I swear I’m really okay with it.”

As you know, AllAboutTRH set the record straight following last week’s episode by revealing the seating chart from Teresa and Louie’s engagement party. The seating chart proves that Melissa and Joe were assigned to sit at the main table across from Louie and Teresa.
However, Melissa was the one who requested to have her and Joe’s seats changed when they arrived at the engagement party.
Teresa explained on her podcast, Namaste B$tches, that Melissa requested that her whole family be seated together at the “friends” table with their sons, Joey and Gino Gorga.
