Joe Gorga is very quick to blame his sister, Teresa Giudice, for damaging his relationship with his parents, but in this sneak peek for next Sunday’s episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, the loving hubby realizes that his wife, Melissa Gorga, may be contributing to the strained relationship as well.
Just back from his workout/Teresa encounter, Joe comes home in a bad mood and tells his wife that they need to talk. After sending Antonia off to do her homework (she still tries to listen to the conversation) Joe recounts what happened with Tre and mentions that she brought up something upsetting that Melissa tweeted.
According to Teresa, when a Twitter follower asked Melissa if she rented her Chanel bag, Mrs. Gorga fired back saying that she doesn’t need to rent bags because she’s not the H’wife that’s filed for bankruptcy. A screencap (courtesy of Bravo) of Melissa’s Twitter feed proves that she did tweet something to that effect, and she even justifies the dig to her hubby, telling him that she was just trying to give Teresa “a taste of her own medicine.”
Melissa explains to the Bravo cameras that she felt attacked after Gia’s birthday, so she “lashed out on Teresa.”
“Who can blame me?” she asks the camera rhetorically. When Melissa confirms what Teresa said was true, Joe is understandably upset.
“You were attacking her,” he states, before bringing his own parents into the mix. “My parents come to the house and they look at you like you’re the devil!”
