Melissa Gorga is denying some of Teresa Giudice’s bold claims about her, her husband, and several other members of the RHONJ cast.

On a recent episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Melissa Gorga addressed some recent accusations made against her and other members of the RHONJ cast by Teresa Giudice.

To start, Melissa denies that Joe Gorga’s reunion with Joe Giudice in the Bahamas was “opportunistic” and “staged,” calling Teresa’s claims “ridiculous.”

“We were really just on a vacation with our friends, and I actually think he knew we were. We were in the same casino at the same time. We literally just ran into him, so I think anything to try to spin something that was a positive or that we were friendly with him at the time,” she explained. “It was a very nice encounter between the two guys, there’s always a spin to make it like somebody’s evil and doing something wrong. But it was the most innocent thing there could be.”

Meanwhile, Melissa also took issue with Teresa swearing on her daughters that Louie Ruelas didn’t hire a PI to investigate the RHONJ cast.

“I thought that was ridiculous,” she stated.

She also defended the decision for part of the RHONJ cast to meet ahead of the season 13 reunion to discuss their united game plan.

As we learned in the RHONJ season 14 premiere, Margaret Josephs invited the Gorgas, Jennifer Fessler, Jackie Goldschneider, and the Fudas to her home ahead of the season 13 reunion to allegedly plot a takedown of Louie Ruelas.

“We were all being investigated by a PI. That was a first. I’ve been on this show for a very long time. We were being investigated at the time. First of all, it’s a meeting of the minds. It’s not like a, ‘We’re gonna come and attack.’ [It’s the norm] everywhere. You think they don’t meet and say, ‘What are we gonna do,’ with attorneys involved. At least we just ordered sushi and opened a bottle of wine,” Melissa noted.

RHONJ airs on Sundays at 8 pm on Bravo.
