In honor of an all-new episode of the Real Housewives of New Jersey airing tonight on Bravo, we thought it would be fun to take a little stroll down memory lane.
It’s no secret that the drama between the Giudices and Gorgas has been ongoing for well over a decade. For the most part, Bravo fans have watched all the drama play out on the show and on social media.
On RHONJ, one of the biggest issues Joe and Melissa Gorga currently have with Teresa Giudice is that she didn’t invite Melissa’s mom, Donna Marco, and her sisters, Lysa Simpson, and Kim Pirrella, to her upcoming wedding.
AllAboutTRH recently broke down why the Marco family should have never expected to score an invite to Teresa’s wedding to Louie Ruelas.
In the article, we do a deep dive into the drama between Teresa and Melissa’s family, mainly her sisters Lysa and Kim. When Teresa first joined RHONJ, the Marco family gushed about her growing stardom however, as Teresa’s star continued to rise, their social media posts turn more and more negative, especially when Melissa joined the show during season three.
Now, AllAboutTRH is sharing some throwback clips from RHONJ where Teresa begs Melissa to have her family stop tweeting about her.
In one clip, Melissa, Joe, and Teresa sit down with a therapist. Teresa tells Melissa, “Please ask your mom, your aunt, to not tweet about me. I’ve seen it.”
Melissa insists, “they don’t tweet about you,” before demanding to Teresa show her the tweets. She adds: “They would never. They say nothing but positive things.”
“Tell them not to get involved,” Teresa fires back.
After Melissa’s done gaslighting Teresa, she quickly changes her tune and says that her family is justified in tweeting about Teresa because they are simply standing up for her.
“What if they did? If they did, guess what? If someone hurts Melania, I hope Gia tweets about them. I bet you we’re gonna want that Gia to tweet for that Melania or that Audriana,” Melissa quips.
Joe then chimes in, saying that he and Melissa are so “confident” that they just scroll past nasty tweets about themselves.
Then at the reunion, Andy Cohen asks Melissa: “You accused Teresa of having an army doing her dirty work. What about the tweets that your sisters send out? Are they your army?”
“That is Teresa making stories up cuz she’s the one that always says that about my sisters. There’s not one tweet,” Melissa claims.
Once again, Melissa is gaslighting and lying about her sister’s constantly trashing Teresa on social media.
Teresa brings up a photo that her sisters recently tweeted of her and Penny with the caption “girlfriends.” The mom of four notes that she sent the post to her brother when she saw it.
“Okay, now you’re that you’re right about, but “what’s wrong with that?” Melissa replies as Joe inserts himself, saying, “That’s their sister.”
“And I’m your sister,” Teresa fires back. “They should have never gotten involved.”
Melissa and Joe make it clear that they are fine with Melissa’s family trashing Teresa.
“My sisters are my sisters. There’s nothing I can do. They’re gonna back me up until the end,” Melissa said.
“Okay. If both of yous are okay with your sister’s trashing me on Twitter. Then [fine],” Teresa replies.
