BEVERLY HILLS (LALATE EXCLUSIVE) – As the Joe Gorga and Melissa Gorga feud with Teresa Giudice and Joe Giudice heats up tonight on Bravo, off screen the Gorgas are getting support for housewives outside Patterson. Several Orange County and Beverly Hills Housewives cast members couldn’t stop praising Joe Gorga and Melissa Gorga this week on Facebook. But in the pictures and the praise, there were no comment about from west coast housewives about Teresa.
Tonight, Bravo debuts a heated feud that they have been teasing fans for weeks. In it, Melissa Gorga calls Teresa Giudice a “runaway coward”. It starts after Melissa confronts Teresa tonight and fumes “Don’t you ever get between my marriage.” Teresa fires back “Tell you husband not to get between my marriage.”
Teresa claims that Melissa is trying to ruin Teresa’s relationship with her brother. “You tell him. Me and him, we don’t talk anymore since you came into the middle. Whatever I tell you, you twist it around, and tell my brother, your side, not my side.”
From there, Melissa and Teresa head into a sensitive topic, their children. Melissa claims that Teresa doesn’t care about her family, even her nephew. The claim is one RHONJ viewers have heard against Teresa before, namely by Danielle Staub.
Melissa says to Teresa “You call me up, you insult my children, you insult me” says Melissa. Teresa fights back. “You bring my kids gifts to preschool. You drop them off instead of dropping them off at my house.”
From there, Melissa claims that Teresa doesn’t even remember her nephew’s birthday. “Joey’s first birthday was three months ago. Where is his birthday present? You want to talk about gifts? You brought up the gifts. Where is his first birthday gift? Don’t beat up around the bush Teresa.”
Teresa uses the comments to claim that Melissa is after possessions. “She always talk about materialistic gifts. First of all, you never had a party, you never had a cake, and it just shows me what type of person you are.” And in their final dramatic, if not staged, moment, Melissa fumes “Runaway coward. Runway coward like you always do!”
This week, Gretchen Rossi had nothing but praise for Melissa and Joe Gorga. In 2011, fellow RHOC cast member Tamra Barney repeatedly said the same about the Gorgas. Rossi calls the Gorgas “very fun friends”. Last week, Melissa Gorga, not Teresa, was chosen as the RHONJ cast member for US Weekly’s Hot Bodies photoshoot.
“The awesome @melissagorga is in town for our US Weekly Hot Bodies photo shoot tomorrow and we are hitting the town tonight with the beautiful @kyleRichards18! Can’t wait to paint the town red with you girls tonight” said Rossi.
