“There is no denying that all this family drama aired on national TV has taken a toll on Teresa’s parents. Teresa’s parents never liked Melissa and they sure like her a lot less now,” our source tells Reality Tea EXCLUSIVELY. “They do not even watch the show because [they] can’t even bear the heartache.”
“Melissa thought naming her children after her in-laws was going to get them on ‘her side’ and closer to Joe (her husband). The truth is Teresa’s parents have always been closer with Joe Giudice and Teresa,” our source reveals. “They cannot stand Melissa. They do what they have to do because they love their son, but that’s it.”
Even worse, Teresa’s parents believe Melissa has caused all of the family problems! “They blame Melissa for the wedge between their children,” our source adds. “They will never forgive their [Joe and Melissa] decision to join the show and make a mockery of their family. ” Whoa – very harsh words!
However, Melissa is not giving up her desire for fame no matter how much if affects Joe’s family. And in light of all the drama surrounding Teresa, Melissa decided to use that to her advantage and make Teresa look like the bad guy! “Melissa’s strategy this season was to play victim during filming,” our source continues. “She is just a better ‘actress’ than some of the other girls. She really is playing the game of the ‘victim.’”
And Melissa’s alleged plans are apparently paying off! “Melissa is very happy the way things turned out. She couldn’t wait to get in the group and turn them all against Teresa.”
Additionally, Melissa has definitely let fame go to her head! “Melissa is starting to turn into a Teresa. She has become very arrogant. Fame already has changed her. ”
Our source also tells us that Melissa’s holier than thou attitude and pretending to be financially secure is an act! “She always makes comments about how they pay their bills, etc yet Joe owes a lot of people money. Just like Joe G-to-the-Iudice, it is going to catch up with them.”
Indeed, below are some court documents demonstrating that Joe has had liens filed against him in the past. Those liens have since been resolved.
