Teresa Giudice and Joe Gorga may have not interacted at BravoCon 2022, but The Real Housewives of New Jersey siblings still ended up exchanging words. 

How to Watch

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

The back-and-forth began when Joe, in a panel alongside his wife Melissa Gorga and Margaret JosephsJackie Goldschneider and their respective husbands, accused Teresa of publicly discussing their relationship.

"I’m just hearing in the press that she says there’s no fixing our relationship," Joe said. "She is the older one in our family, she’s my older sister, and whatever she says, goes. I’ve done everything right, I really have. I respected her, I loved her, I respected Louie [Ruelas] and my wife has respected her."

He continued, "And we’re all about family. And she’s making the decisions. We’ve watched it, we’ve learned on national TV, she made all the decisions. And every time you hear it in the press, we hear it in the press. So there’s no hidden agendas here."

Later on, Teresa responded to Joe's claims in a panel of her own. "Every day there's something new that my brother's saying in the press," she explained after a fan question mentioned Joe's comments. "Family shouldn't be acting this way. Right now, I just got married, I'm focusing on my children, I'm focusing on my husband."

"This is shenanigans," Teresa added. "This is not how I was raised. What's going on is disgusting, it really is."

Moving forward, "I want him to wish me well and I wish him well," she continued. "And that's it. I just want peace."

That, and to "concentrate on what's really important." 

"My children, they're teenagers right now," Teresa said. "It's an important time in their life. I got married, so I want to focus on what's good for our family. And my brother and Melissa are the ones who said they wanted the 'toxic' to be taken away, so they got what they wanted and I wish them well."

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