If you were wondering why an invitation to stay at a shore house led to some tension on the March 21 episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, well, we have the answer for you straight from Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga themselves.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey Sundays at 8/7c on Bravo and stream next day on Peacock.

“You’re not staying at my house because you don’t want to. Shut the f--k up and stop faking. Just stop,” Melissa shared on The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 13 After Show. For Teresa, much of the issue stems from how she felt her brother, Joe Gorga, was behaving right from the start. “I think we started the season off, he was, like, hotheaded as soon as we started,” Teresa explained of where she was in her situation with Joe during the season. “For what reason, I have no idea.”

In the clip above, both Teresa and Melissa share more insight into the current shore house drama and we also learn how the group feels about it. So how do they feel about the drama connected to the shore trip today and how does it tie back to the tensions around Teresa’s wedding to Luis “Louie” Ruelas? Well, you can find out more by checking out the RHONJ After Show, above.

The family drama will continue as the group is still on their vacation at the shore in the upcoming March 27 episode of RHONJ. In a first look at Tuesday’s episode, the crew takes a look back at Melissa’s party, including all the ups and downs the group experienced and the tensions around inviting Melissa’s mom to Teresa’s wedding. In the wake of the drama over Melissa’s mom, Dolores Catania makes one thing clear, “Moms are really f--king off-limits.”

But that’s not all that’s revealed. There are also new insights on the issues between Joe Gorga and Louie, as the families look back on it all in the clip below, with Teresa sharing what she believes is the origin of their drama.
