Jennifer Aydin Responds to Melissa Gorga Saying She’s “Obsessed” with Teresa Giudice

She also weighed in on Louie Ruelas asking her husband, Bill Aydin, to be a groomsman shortly before the wedding.

The drama surrounding Teresa Giudice’s bridal party is far from finished.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey on Peacock and the Bravo app.  

As viewers have seen on The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 13, Teresa asked fellow cast members Dolores Catania and Jennifer Aydin to be her bridesmaids just a few weeks before she tied the knot with Luis “Louie” Ruelas.

Though she belatedly asked her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga to be a bridesmaid, Melissa declined the invitation. She said on the show that she would “never go back” after she wasn’t included in the initial lineup.

When Jennifer and Melissa met up at Danielle Cabral’s pop-up event at Envy on the April 11 episode, the two discussed the matter further. Jennifer mentioned that Melissa could still decide to be a bridesmaid, but Teresa’s sister-in-law reiterated that she “definitely would never have said yes.”

After the episode aired, Melissa appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen and discussed the conversation she had with Jennifer at her store.

“I mean, the grin on her face, she was so excited to say it to me, which, good for her. I know she’s obsessed with Teresa, so I’m happy that she got to…,” Melissa said as the audience reacted to the shady comment. “I mean, facts. No one is gonna deny that she is not completely and utterly obsessed with her. So to actually be able to walk in front of her down the aisle, to her, was huge. So God bless, good for you.”

Jennifer fired back at Melissa’s “obsessed” comment when she appeared on the April 25 episode of WWHL.

“I don’t really care what Melissa says,” Jennifer said.

Meanwhile, Dolores and Jennifer weren’t the only people who were asked to be in Teresa and Louie’s respective bridal parties shortly before the wedding. Jennifer’s husband, Dr. Bill Aydin, was invited to be a groomsman just two weeks before the big day. Though Joe Gorga thought Bill was asked as an “afterthought,” Jennifer had a different take on the matter.

“I thought it was an honor,” she said on WWHL. “I thought, you know what, these people think we’re very important in their lives, we’ve facilitated a real friendship, [and] I feel like we’re gonna be in each other’s future. And they asked me to be in it, [so] I feel like it was respectful toward me. I get to walk down [the aisle] with my husband!”

While Jennifer was thrilled about Bill’s inclusion in the wedding, some of the other RHONJ ladies had other perspectives. Find out what they said on The Real Housewives of New Jersey After Show by watching the video below.
