We still have a few episodes of The Real Housewives of New Jersey to go before we’ll be treated to the “epic” reunion, but with some secrets from the reunion starting to emerge, we’re starting to understand why the remaining episodes that revolve around the Posche Fashion Show are so important.

All About the Real Housewives obtained exclusive info from the reunion thanks to a show insider, and there’s a lot to take in.

According to the insider, Joe Gorga stopped talking to his sister Teresa Giudice because of the upcoming stripper fiasco involving his wife, Melissa Gorga, which was filmed over a year ago.

The reason Joe hasn’t spoken to Teresa is because of the stripper drama. Joe revealed at the reunion that Teresa told their father that Melissa was a stripper and that their father went back to Joe Gorga and told him Teresa said that.”

Given the fact that Teresa recently discussed Joe’s “lies” with Andy Cohen on an episode of Watch What Happens Live, the next tidbit makes total sense.

The source continues, “Teresa denied the fact that she told their father that Melissa was a stripper and even said she wanted to call him in front of everyone to prove she never told him that. She kept telling Joe that she never actually called Melissa a stripper and that she just heard it as a rumor but Joe isn’t buying it.”

Unfortunately for Teresa, the heartache didn’t end there, and she even wound up getting comforted by an unlikely source.

“Kathy calls Teresa’s mother a liar, which makes Teresa freak out. I think that got Teresa upset the most and Caroline is seen even comforting her.”
