Melissa Admits Joe Gorga “Stepped Out of Line” by Doing This to Teresa and Louie

Go inside the rare moment when the sisters-in-law were in agreement at the RHONJ Season 13 reunion.

By Allison Crist

Tensions have never been higher between Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga, but it turns out there was one thing they could both agree on during Part 1 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 13 reunion — and it just so happened to involve Dina Manzo.

Dina, as fans may recall, became a topic of conversation earlier this season when it was revealed that she wouldn’t be a bridesmaid in Teresa and Luis “Louie” Ruelas’ wedding, nor would she attend the nuptials at all. Teresa said Dina backed out because she simply didn’t want to be filmed, but according to Joe Gorga, the real reason had to do with an alleged fight between Louie and Dina’s husband, David

Joe went so far as to call the tiff — rumored to have been caused by a business dispute — “Pizza Gate part two.” 

“It f-cked up another relationship in Teresa’s life,” he added.

Teresa’s Denial of Any Issues Between Louie and David

In response, Teresa explained on her Namaste B$tches podcast that the gossip about Louie and David’s issues stemming from business dealings was untrue as that “never happened” and there was no business deal. “Luis and Dave speak every single day. They’re so close,” she said in April, adding, “They’ve always just been best friends, really. There’s nothing there.”

Teresa similarly denied any issues between her and Dina. What’s more, Dina herself said last year that she and Teresa “were never not friends.”

“Sometimes friendships go [through phases],” the RHONJ alum added, “but in the end, true friendships will always find their way back when the time is right.”

RHONJ Season 13 Reunion Revelations

How Teresa Really Feels About Dina Missing Her Wedding

The Dina drama came up during Part 1 of the RHONJ Season 13 reunion after host Andy Cohen asked why she bowed out of being a bridesmaid. Reiterating her earlier comments on the matter, Teresa explained, “She didn’t want to be on camera. She didn’t want people knowing she was coming here. And I’m not gonna get upset with her. When she told me, I was like, OK. I mean, I wish she would’ve told me a little sooner, but it’s OK.”

Andy followed up his initial question with an observation: “It seems like you and Louie and Dina and her man were all very tight and hanging out and going on trips and really all over each other’s social media, but that seems like it stopped.”

Making sure to dispel the narrative about a potential beef between her and Dina’s husbands, Teresa responded, “We are OK. And Louie and Dave never had any business dealings at all.”

Melissa’s Thoughts on the Teresa and Dina Drama

After Teresa made the remark about Louie and Dave’s nonexistent business dealings, Andy turned to Melissa to point out that Joe was the one who brought up the claim on RHONJ.

“He had a private conversation with Dave,” Melissa said. “[But Dave] doesn’t want to be part of the show, so that was wrong. Joe stepped out of line by saying that on the show.”

Teresa, for her part, shook her head in agreement.
