If you thought cancer was one of those things that even reality TV couldn't turn into a source of needless drama, you underestimated the cast of Real Housewives of New Jersey. In the Season 6 premiere, Melissa Gorga and Amber Marchese found themselves at odds over whether or not Melissa was aware that Amber had cancer. Yeah, it was awkward.


In the episode, Amber said Melissa had sent her a Facebook message at the time, while Melissa insisted she never knew her friend was sick. Now, Melissa has taken to her Bravo blog to talk about the situation — and she is sticking by her statement that she had no idea what Amber had been through.

"I was a little taken back at [Amber's] party when she was coming at me for not acknowledging she had cancer, because I had no idea," Melissa writes. "How would I have known? She never reached out to tell me. We had no mutual friends that told me. I had no way of knowing and I'm not psychic."

As for the Facebook message — yeah, Melissa is confused about that, too. "She said I left her some kind of Facebook message sending my condolences, but when I asked her to show me the message, it miraculously disappeared."

Melissa even admits that "by the end of her party I was trying to figure out why she really wanted to come back into my life. I definitely was questioning how genuine her intentions were."

That said, Melissa added, "I felt horrible that she went through having cancer and wish I could’ve been there for her during that very difficult time... I’m so happy for her and thank God she’s cancer-free!”
