Here’s How Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga *Really* Feel Ahead of the RHONJ Season 13 Reunion

The RHONJ cast members (and sisters-in-law) are prepping for what is sure to be an emotional reunion.

By Jocelyn Vena

It’s almost reunion time. And with The Real Housewives of New Jersey season-ending sit-down on its way, you can bet that both Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga have some feelings about what might happen given all their ups and downs throughout Season 13 of RHONJ.

How to Watch

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

Teresa recently shared with Page Six that it will “definitely [be] weird” to come face-to-face with her family, especially her brother, Joe Gorga, should he be at the reunion. She added, “It’s an uncomfortable situation, but, you know, it’s my job, so I will be fine.”

When Melissa appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen earlier this week, she noted during her Clubhouse appearance that she is currently putting together her reunion “receipts,” and Joe, who was in the audience for the taping, told Andy that he should “go deep” with his questions.

“I haven’t felt like I needed to have receipts in a very long time, but I feel like there’s a lot of accusations that aren’t true,” Melissa said. “There’s a lot of twists and turns. And they haven’t done that in a while. I need to prove a lot, which I’m so upset about.”

And while there has been a rift between Teresa and the Gorgas, Joe noted during WWHL that he hasn’t counted out that their relationship can be repaired. “It’s never done,” Joe said. “It’s family, bro.”

On an episode of WWHL earlier this month, Andy and Dolores Catania chatted about the reunion, and Andy shared, “This one’s gonna be tough because, I mean, regarding the Teresa and Mel [drama], to me, it’s over.”

In a previous interview, when Melissa appeared on an episode of Betches’ Mention It All podcast, she shared about the upcoming reunion that “our reunions are always like… we’re going through [therapy] and Andy’s our therapist. I think this one will be a little different. I think it’s gonna be a lot more receipts… kinda like what the other girls do, what the other franchises do.”

And while the ladies are prepping for the reunion, there is, of course, the rest of RHONJ Season 13 to check out. When speaking on the podcast, Melissa shared that fans will get to see what led to the issues between the family members.

“At the time, we were very upset about a lot of things that you haven’t seen yet, and it’s way deeper than the bridesmaid thing,” she said. “It’s what happened before that. There’s a little more of a backstory, obviously. You guys aren’t getting it all yet, but I think you will. You’ll get the full story. But you don’t have it yet.”
