Melissa Gorga Is ‘Hurt’ After Nieces Gabriella and Gia Giudice Exposed Her Lies
Melissa Gorga has addressed comments made by her niece, Gabriella Giudice, who called out the Real Housewives of New Jersey star and her husband, Joe Gorga, during the February 21 episode.
The episode featured Gabriella, her mother, Teresa Giudice and sister, Gia, discussing the couple’s involvement in the lives of their four nieces during Teresa’s year-long prison stint.
Melissa reacted to the aired exchange and spoke out about Teresa’s recent reunion with RHONJ alum, Jacqueline Laurita, during a post-episode appearance on Watch What Happens Live. She also hit back at Luis Ruelas for implying that she was insecure.
“I think it’s super selfish when any mother brings a child into a conversation like this. I’m sorry. It’s a selfish thing to have them comment on it. [Gabriella]’s my godchild,” the boutique owner said on Tuesday’s WWHL.
The episode also featured Gia admitting that she wished that her mom hadn’t offered Melissa a late invitation to serve as one of her bridesmaids. Melissa shot down the idea that Teresa’s gesture was heartfelt.
Melissa explained — “No, I was just like, ‘Get out of here.’ It was to save face. I don’t need to save face. She doesn’t need to either, anymore.”
Host, Andy Cohen, asked the reality star to share how she felt after watching her niece claim that the couple only showed up for her and her sisters for Bravo cameras.
Melissa Gorga admitted that the comment “hurts to even hear” and Joe agreed, commenting — “Exactly what she said.”
Melissa weighed in on Teresa and Jacqueline’s recent reunion, and expressed confusion over her former co-star calling her a manipulator.
“She literally didn’t show up to a reunion because she was saying Teresa was the most manipulating situation and Teresa was calling me out on things,” Melissa explained. “She has really proven that she can’t stand Teresa in so many ways. She sends text messages all over the place. I’m in shock that she said that about me because from day one, before I even filmed my first scene, she was the one calling my phone every day, not in a negative way, but to definitely fill me in on things so the fact that she said that I’m manipulating is crazy.”
Melissa Gorga called Luis’ assertion that she was insecure “strange.”
“It’s coming from Mr. Insecurity himself. He freaks out if you say one thing about him. He like, walks in circles,” Melissa remarked, adding — “He sweats.”
Melissa was also asked about why she chose to tell Danielle Cabral that Jackie Goldschneider had dissed her outfit.
“I wasn’t not repeating it for any wrong reasons. I was just being honest with her,” the Bravo star said. “And I don’t care. Jackie doesn’t care. Jackie’s like, [she] unapologetically says what she says about Danielle, which I don’t think she cares. She doesn’t even care that I told her.”
The Real Housewives of New Jersey airs on Tuesdays at 9 pm, ET, on Bravo.
