Joe Gorga Shades Sis Teresa for Snubbing Wife Melissa

    Joe Gorga was shocked when sister Teresa Giudice announced on Watch What Happens Live that she would not be including his wife, Melissa Gorga, in her bridesmaid lineup.

    During a recent podcast appearance, the Real Housewives of New Jersey husband admitted that Melissa was “upset” by the public announcement that she would not be featured in the bridal party when Teresa and fiancé Luis Ruelas tie the knot this summer and noted that Teresa was “completely wrong” to snub her sister-in-law.

    “It was really shocking when we saw it on Watch What Happens Live,” Joe admitted on the March 23 episode of the Side Piece Podcast. “I don’t provoke anything. I just sit there. We were on a couch watching WWHL late at night. I didn’t say much. I just sat there and listened. Melissa got a little upset, but it’s not about being Teresa’s bridesmaid. It’s not about that.”

    According to Joe, the snub was far more than a wedding technicality.

    “It’s more like there isn’t any respect,” he explained, adding, “Here we go again.”

    Joe went on to say that Teresa was wrong to leave Melissa out of her big day.

    “My sister, she was completely wrong, 100 percent, because if that was me and I’m getting married, my brother-in-law would have been in it no matter what — even if I didn’t like the guy,” Joe stated. “Let’s just say I didn’t get along with him, I don’t see him as much, he’s in it because it’s respect and I don’t want any problems. I don’t want to fight. There’s no reason to argue so you’re in it, let’s just keep the peace and keep it happy.”

    On an episode of her own podcast, Melissa Gorga on Display, Melissa said she “pretty much assumed” Teresa wouldn’t select her as a bridesmaid and joked that if she did, she’d “probably put [her] in an ugly dress.”

    “I did find out on TV that I’m not going to be in Teresa’s wedding and I’m not a bridesmaid, which I’m OK with. I’m fine with [it],” Melissa said on the March 17 episode. “I understand. To each their own.”
