Jacqueline Laurita Calls Melissa Gorga A Phony: Does Melissa Act For The ‘RHONJ’ Cameras?

Jacqueline Laurita decided to return to The Real Housewives of New Jersey for various reasons. Jacqueline really wanted a break from the show a few years ago and she decided to return this year because she felt ready. In addition, Laurita has revealed that she and her husband were struggling financially and she may have signed on for another season of the show for financial reasons. But she also revealed that she wanted to work out her issues with Teresa Giudice and be there for her as she was released from prison, as she would soon be a single mother of four girls.

According to a new tweet, Jacqueline Laurita is now revealing that some friendships and alliances have shifted. And this is particularly true for herself. While she can speak to Teresa these days as long as it’s not about her bankruptcy, time in prison or her fraud charges, Jacqueline can’t seem to get along with Melissa Gorga. This week on Twitter, Laurita actually agreed with a fan that Melissa was a downright phony person.

“I cannot stand watching Melissa anymore she was all about involving everyone else when she had issues with TG, now no loyalty,” one person wrote about Melissa, to which Jacqueline Laurita added, “I feel ya!”

But it didn’t stop there. As it turns out, Laurita actually agreed with the fan, saying that she totally understands why people see Melissa as a phony person. Maybe it’s because Gorga decided to put her drama with Teresa Giudice aside for the sake of her family rather than argue her case. Maybe she realized that she couldn’t speak her mind and keep Teresa in her life.

“Melissa is the biggest phony on the show. Saw this in her from the start. She’s not fooling the audience,” the person continued in a separate tweet, to which Laurita added, “I happen to agree with you. The next episode made it even more clear to me. It’s really a great episode. Some [happy and sad] moments for sure!”

The upcoming trip to Vermont will prove to be challenging for some of the wives. Jacqueline Laurita will go on the trip with Gorga, Teresa Giudice and the new housewives. During the trip, Giudice’s legal problems will be brought up once again and Jacqueline Laurita will probably be the one who will say and do something unforgivable.

Even Gorga have said that something seems off with Jacqueline on this season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey. She opened up about this in her Bravo blog for the show this season, as the two met up alone.

“This was the first argument we’ve really ever had, and I tried very hard to keep my cool. I was pretty straightforward with why I felt she was out of line and to this day I still don’t think she gets it or wants to. When she had her finger in my face, I realized two things: 1) This is NOT the friend I’ve known for years and 2) I have the patience of a saint!” Melissa has revealed of Jacqueline Laurita in her blog for The Real Housewives of New Jersey, according to Bravo, adding, “Something is VERY off with Jacqueline. There is a lot of animosity from her that has come out of nowhere, and I wish I could say that things get better from here, but as you will soon see this was just the beginning.”

What do you think of Jacqueline Laurita’s comments about Melissa being phony? Do you agree with her or do you think Melissa just knows when to back down in a fight with Teresa?
