Teresa Guidice has vowed to stand up for herself and not be the victim in the upcoming season of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey.” If the details emerging of her recent fight with her brother are anything to judge by, she’s not taking any sh*t from anyone, even if her feud with Melissa Gorga has calmed down a little.
Melissa Gorga recently revealed that she has been able to film scenes with Teresa Giudice for Season 5 of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” without too much fighting, but it was a whole different story when Teresa’s brother, Joe Gorga, recently tried to approach her at an event, upset at her for not visiting him in hospital.
Teresa and Joe were attending an event for Kim D.’s jewelry line. Kim D.’s assistant had encouraged Joe to work things out with his sister so he went to talk to her. His first response was to tell her to “shut up and get the f—k out of here,”
But he did approach Teresa, and then the siblings were soon at each other’s throats.
Why? Because Joe was upset his sister didn’t visit him in hospital where he landed up last month with a bad case of flu.
“Why didn’t you call me? I was in the hospital?,” he screamed.
But Teresa wasn’t having the blame pinned on her. She claimed that Joe’s wife, Melissa Gorga, had not told Teresa that her brother was hospitalized. That’s when Joe really lost it, apparently angry with Teresa for always bringing up Melissa in their arguments.
“He immediately started a fight with her causing a scene and she wasn’t having it. She walked away from the situation wanting to go home but producers asked her to stick it out,” the insider said. “Joe Gorga and Teresa haven’t even spoken and everyone finds it odd that Joe only will talk to Teresa on camera!”
So who’s in the wrong here – Teresa for bring up Melissa like that, or Joe for overreacting?
