Andy Cohen is a brave man: he goes where others would not dare, deep into the depths of The Real Housewives, but to be fair, Cohen created the beast. In 2016, he developed and produced the OG The Real Housewives of Orange County, per IMDb. The many franchise offshoots spread worldwide like the black plague. Hoping drunk on Louboutins while hitting a housewife with the Hermès handbag soon became a TV program and even the norm. However, there’s one Jersey girl at the heart of most of the greatest Real Housewives cows of all time, and that’s Teresa Giudice. She has yet to meet a co-star she wouldn’t turn the table over.
Teresa’s feud with The Real Housewives of New Jersey co-star Melissa Gorga, who is married to her brother Joe Gorga, is legendary. Melissa’s relationship with Teresa is as full of beef as a dumpster full of double whoppers. The two women even recently dropped the “fr” from frenemies since Joe and Melissa called off Teresa’s wedding to Luis Ruelas.
During BravoCon 2019, Teresa compared Melissa and Joe’s joining “RHONJ” to their (widespread) legal troubles, which ended with her incarceration and deportation of her then-husband and baby daddy, Joe Giudice. She found that prison was the lesser of the two evils. “My family came on the show behind my back, and that was the worst thing that could ever happen to me,” Teresa said. However, Cohen is clearly over it and didn’t hold back on Teresa and Melissa’s feud during BravoCon 2022.
Even Andy Cohen is over Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga’s feud
Most people go home for the holidays when they want to see drunks rehashing the past and arguing at the dinner table. However, Andy Cohen chooses to stick with his “real housewives,” and he’s endured a lot over the years. Taylor Armstrong yells at cat memes, wig fights, and more cocktail fights than you can throw a Twizzle stick at. However, even Cohen is over the feud of Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga.
According to a reporter from The List, the panel for the “Ask Andy” BravoCon 2022 Q&A has been split into two parts. Teresa and Melissa blamed each other for the security measure, insisting it wasn’t their fault. Cohen asked to disagree, saying the two were “kind of… responsible” for splitting the panel. “They’re really not in a good place, as you might have realized,” Cohen explained when asked about the need for the breakup.
“We want this to be fun for everyone, and besides, we’re on the brink of a really great season from New Jersey, okay?” Cohen continued. “They’re in a really floating place where when you bring them all out together … they’re in a different place than the last time we saw them all as a group, and I think it’s better left alone.” [all the drama] Show live on air.” Buckle up, fans. It’s going to be a bumpy ride in the Garden State.
