Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen has been on the air for more than 13 years, so it’s safe to say that Andy Cohen has seen his fair share of shade, surprises, and shockers. However, even Andy was taken aback by one of Joe Gorga’s latest comments about Teresa Giudice and Luis “Louie” Ruelas’ marriage.
Joe made the remark during a special episode of WWHL at BravoCon 2022, where he was joined by his wife, The Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Melissa Gorga. She was actually asked the question that prompted the comment, which is as follows: “What do you think will last longer: Joe’s stand-up career or Luis and Teresa’s marriage?”
“Wow!” Melissa responded, though she ultimately opted to take a sip of her drink instead of answering.
That didn’t stop Joe from speaking up, though. “I’m gonna answer the question,” he said. “My stand-up career, baby!”
Cue gasps from the audience and a shocked look on Andy’s face.
“I said it!” Joe added. “I’m so funny!”
The remark was one of many Joe made about his sister throughout the BravoCon 2022 weekend. As he said during a RHONJ panel on Saturday, “I’m just hearing in the press that she says there’s no fixing our relationship. 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, 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.”
Teresa later 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.”
BravoCon is back: The fan event that first launched in 2019 will be back Oct. 14-16. The three-day party will take place at the Javits Center in New York City and feature panels, live performances, and exclusive content for ticket holders.
