Joe and Melissa Gorga get open about cutting people off amid Teresa Giudice feud

With the summer heat comes plenty of drama for The Real Housewives of New Jersey stars Joe and Melissa Gorga and Joe’s sister Teresa Giudice. As fans of the hit Bravo show know, is it really good when this trio gets along well and when they get along badly? The claws are out. Fans have seen plenty of drama between the family members, with the most recent fiasco centering around Giudice’s marriage to Luis Ruelas.

Giudice invited many famous names to her lavish New Jersey wedding, but Joe and Melissa were noticeably absent from the nuptials. The couple has addressed several times why they decided to skip the wedding, including on Melissa’s “Melissa Gorga on Display” podcast. “I’m going to let all my listeners know: obviously something got lost [Season 13] ‘Real Housewives of New Jersey’ filming finale,” Melissa told the audience. “Of course, I can’t say the exact details today. Everything we filmed is something I can’t talk about.” Several outlets reported that the drama stemmed from rumors that Melissa had cheated on Joe with a good friend of theirs.

Giudice also addressed the couple who chose to skip their wedding on the Namaste B$tches podcast. “Listen, I found out a few days before my wedding that they weren’t coming, and I’m totally fine with that,” she said, while assuring fans they’d be watching everything on TV. Now Melissa and Joe are over it.

Melissa and Joe Gorga are ‘done’

Ever since the drama starring Melissa and Joe Gorga and Teresa Giudice, the reality stars have been open about cutting people out of their lives for the better. In early September, the couple chatted about the topic on the Melissa Gorga on Display podcast, and they didn’t hold back too much. “It’s time we pulled ourselves together. And I think we’ve been doing that with a lot of other people in our lives lately… where we’re done taking shit from people. I have to be honest,” Melissa explained. She adds that sometimes she and Joe sweep things under the rug, but this time they’re cracking down. “I’m getting to this point now, I just turned 48, and I’m getting like, ‘What am I doing?'” Joe added. “I was always the safe and chilled one, the one who didn’t care, but now I’m like, ‘I’m done.'”

Melissa said she doesn’t know if this realization is because her kids are getting older or because it’s the stage of life they’re in, but she made it clear she was over the drama. It’s not clear if they referred directly to Giudice, but if we put two and two together it certainly seems likely. For now, Melissa says she wants to “put it all behind me,” but we’re sure it’ll be worked up again once the episodes in question air.
