The Real Housewives of New Jersey season may be over, but the barbs are still flying between Melissa Gorga and Teresa Giudice. Anyone who has watched just five minutes of Bravo’s hit reality series must know that the pair of women likely make a warm and fuzzy family Thanksgiving gathering impossible. During an interview on TheWendy Williams Show, Gorga claimed she was physically accosted by Teresa at little Gia Giudice’s birthday party.
After dropping the bombshell accusation, the reality show star noted emphatically that her sister-in-law “roughed” her up.
Melissa Gorga had this to say about the alleged fight with her Real Housewives of New Jersey co-star:
“I don’t think she was happy that I came. I think she was looking for a press opportunity to say that I wasn’t going to come. At the very end (of the birthday party) she roughed me up a little bit, got in my face. I said not in front of my kid.”
The RHONJ cast member also told Wendy Williams that she had baby Joey in her arm, which was allegedly during what she claims was an aggressive attack. Although she still considers the events which transpired at Gia’s birthday party a vicious incident, she is trying to let go of all her bad feelings, according to interview excerpts republished by Radar Online.
A three-part Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion show is expected to delve further into the family drama between Teresa and Melissa. The animosity between the two relatives has been brewing since last season. The public embarrassment Gorga endured when approached by a man claiming to have been her boss at an erotic dance club, appears to have further damaged the relationship between the reality show leading ladies.
