The drama, backstabbing and controversy continue throughout the season as cheating is a big part of the plot for Season 5 of the hit Bravo show.
As we already revealed to you, Melissa Gorga’s ex-boyfriend Brian “Bulldog” resurfaces in season 5. He says some pretty hurtful things like she only married Joe Gorga for his money. But there is worse to come for Melissa as Brian also alleges that their affair did not end when she married Joe.
He says he and Melissa slept together for quite a while after her marriage to Joe. And is it Teresa Guidice stirring the pot that brings Brian (called Mike on the show for some reason) back into Melissa’s life?
An insider on the show claims that while “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” were taping at the Posche Fashion Show last year, the owner of the salon that last season exposed Melissa’s stripper past tells Teresa Guidice about Melissa’s affair. She even gets the guy in question on speakerphone and gets him to confirm everything.
And by “everything” I mean that before Melissa met and married Joe, she was in a four-year relationship with Bryan and the two were even living together. So it was not a female roomie who kicked her out, forcing her to ask to move in with Joe, as she told him. It was a guy. Her boyfriend.
“Melissa was living with Bryan and wasn’t even interested in Joe until she saw his house,” the insider claims, before going on to allege that she continued to have a discreet affair with Bryan after her marriage and he had no problem blowing the lid on it this season.”
Bryan hinted at what he would reveal when he tweeted, “Time and a place for everything just know the phone call was an atomic bomb and not for me tick tick tick lol.”
Now we know the phone call he mentioned is the call Penny makes to him while at the Posche Fashion Show and the “atomic bomb” is Melissa’s alleged infidelity.
