The age-old feud between the Gorgas and Giudices was once again reignited during the season 12 reunion of ‘Real Housewives of New Jersey’. When Teresa Giudice revealed that she didn’t want her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga to be her maid of honor but asked her future husband’s sisters to be her maid of honor instead, it rubbed Joe Gorgas and Melissa the wrong way. Later when Teresa joined hands with co-star Jennifer Aydin in calling Joe a ‘b**** boy’ and questioned his role on the Bravo show, things got very messy.

It would have just turned into the show that she had for three episodes, which was [Teresa Checks In], which Joe Giudice did on his own.” Joe stepped in and declared that Melissa was being ‘too nice’ and decided to drop some truth bombs by claiming to have helped the Giudices stay afloat. Joe said, “How about ‘Thank you?’ Because when she was in prison, Joe wasn’t working at all either. So they had no income. If we weren’t on the show, their kids would not still be living in that house and have food and have whatever they had.” Melissa added, “He needed to make money on that show and he needed someone to film with and here we were that jumped in.
