Viewers who tune in to The Real Housewives of New Jersey know that Teresa Giudice and her brother Joe Gorga and his wife Melissa Gorga had a rollercoaster relationship. When the couple is around, they are as fat as thieves, but when they quarrel, their claws are out. One of the biggest headlines of 2022 is the couple’s decision to skip Giudice’s wedding to Luis Ruelas. The couple wed in a stunning ceremony at Park Chateau Estate & Gardens in East Brunswick in August (per People), but Joe and Melissa didn’t go. According to Page Six, the couple had other plans during Giudice’s big day and spent the weekend on the Jersey Shore, where they instead enjoyed some sun and beach time. “You’ve been invited,” a source told the outlet, confirming that Joe and Melissa had just decided not to attend.
Radar Online reported that Giudice sent her brother and sister-in-law a bill for their meals since they originally answered yes (and if you answer yes and don’t go, that’s a big no-no in the wedding world). “Meals at Park Chateau Estates and Gardens are not cheap. It’s rude to say ‘yes’ and then change your mind at the 11th hour,” a source told the outlet. “This stuff is non-refundable. Teresa got stuck on the check, and to make matters worse, Joe and Melissa didn’t even send her a gift.” Ruelas has since denied the rumor.
Now, more details are emerging as to why Melissa and Joe missed Tre’s white wedding.
Joe and Melissa Gorga missed Teresa Giudice’s wedding over cheating allegations
Joe Gorga and his wife, Melissa Gorga, skipped on one of the most important days of Teresa Giudice’s life, and multiple sources are spilling the deets about it why. A source told the Daily Mail that the trio fought their way out on the season finale of The Real Housewives of New Jersey after Giudice accused Melissa of cheating on Joe. Insiders close to Joe and Melissa “strongly deny” the rumors are true to them. The man on the other end of the rumours, Nick Barotta, is a close friend of Joe and Melissa’s and he is also married. The source shares that the rumors swirling around social media are “completely ridiculous,” while noting that Barotta has been “close friends” with the famous couple for quite some time. “There is absolutely no truth to this nasty rumor and it’s weird that it even needs to be addressed,” the insider added.
For his part, Joe seemed to subtly address the drama on social media, posting the message, “People are always like, ‘I know how you feel.’ No, you really don’t.” Many fans flocked to the comments section and since this was Joe’s side, most sided with the Gorgas. “Team Melissa and Joe, you know the truth… it will come out ” one person wrote on the post. One thing is for sure, the drama is far from over, but it’s clear that many people are invested in this feud.
