Melissa Gorga has admitted that season 13 of RHONJ became the “lowest of the low” with sister-in-law Teresa Giudice. Despite that – there was a point that Melissa Gorga acted as if she did want to move forward with Teresa Giudice.
On the most recent episode of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, we watch as Joe Gorga makes a huge allegation when speaking to Melissa Gorga regarding Teresa Giudice and her close friend Dina Manzo’s relationship. Joe Gorga accuses Dina’s husband David (sic) Cantin of calling Joe Gorga because they are “friendly” to tell him that he had a business go wrong with Teresa’s fiancee, Louie Ruelas.
Our sources close to the cast tell us that Joe Gorgas claims are absolutely not true saying,
“Dave has met Joe Gorga once and that was at Teresa’s engagement party. He wouldn’t even consider himself friendly with Joe. And no one has ever called Dave, David like Joe did on the show. The allegation made by Joe Gorga is absolutely not true.”
In another scene, Dolores Catania and Jennifer Aydin proudly reveal that they have been asked to be Teresa Giudice’s bridesmaid which makes Melissa Gorga extremely angry. Melissa continues to poke Dolores about how weird it is that she would walk in Teresa’s wedding all while saying Dina (Manzo) Cantin dropped out of the wedding and that is the only reason Teresa is asking her.
In this exclusive timeline – we found out that the Turkish event happened on July 14th, 2022 but that on July 12th, 2022, two days before the event, right after the Jersey Shore incident – Melissa had sent text messages that we reported last month to Teresa Giudice, Joe Gorga and Louie Ruelas.
In the text, Melissa says she wants to put everything behind them and just be happy. Melissa Gorga also says that she and Joe Gorga are very happy for Teresa Giudice and Louie Ruelas. Teresa responds that she is sorry for anything she has done that has contributed to this space between them.
Melissa sent the text message on July 12th and Teresa Giudice responded at 1am on July 13th.
The Turkish coffee event was on July 14th. The same day Melissa acted furious that Dolores agreed to walk in Teresa’s wedding and it’s also the same event that Melissa accuses Teresa Giudice of only asking Dolores because Dina Manzo isn’t walking.
What was shocking is that Melissa Gorga never mentions anything about these texts to the ladies during the Turkish event. She and Joe Gorga tend to talk about things that happen outside of the show with Teresa Giudice and Louie Ruelas and if Melissa was being sincere and wanting to make peace – why wouldn’t she mention this or mention Teresa’s response?
