Melissa Gorga has been plagued by salacious allegations ever since she appeared on Real Housewives of New Jersey. Last year it was stripper accusations, and this year she's been accused of cheating on Poison Gorga with her ex-boyfriend Brian "Bulldog" Bowen.
Just like Joe adamantly defended Melissa against stripper-gate, he is coming to her defense in the rumors that she had an affair.
“I don’t even know this guy,” Joe insists to Life & Style. “People tried to bring this up two years ago; they tried to put this bulls–t out there. All I have to say is, ‘Ha, ha, ha.’”
“There’s a lot of lies and a lot of accusations…but I love my wife,” Joe shares. "The poor girl keeps getting all this abuse for no reason. They find a good mom with a good image, and it's like, ‘How can we take her down?’”

“We knew what to expect and what I was getting into. If there were skeletons in my closet I would never have gone on the show.” I don't know about that, but whatever!
Moving on, Tom Murro shared with RadarOnline that Melissa, along with Teresa Giudice and Caroline Manzo were going to therapy together on the upcoming season to truly put their issues behind them. Allegedly it was a producer manipulated move, but what isn't these days?
“Teresa, Melissa and Caroline are sick and tired of all the fighting, so they say, so Bravo brought in a therapist from California to try and stop the arguments,” a source revealed to Tom. “Both Joe Giudice and Joe Gorga were also in the group therapy session."
Last week we reported that Teresa called in Caroline to mediate a family disagreement when they were vacationing in Upstate New York.
“Even though they said they were going to bury the hatchet, everyone is really emotional, and right now they’re not really able to have a rational conversation without sliding into threats and yelling and tears,” the source added. “All the women and their husbands are acting like they get along, but there is so much underlying mistrust that it is hard for any of them to move forward.”
Well, Tom told us EXCLUSIVELY that the Giudices and the Lauritas went on a double date!
"Seems this trust therapy stuff is working," Tom shared. "One of my reporters spotted Jax, Chris, Teresa, and Joe on a double date last week at The Brick House in Wyckoff NJ – Sorry, no hair pulling, table flipping or fighting, but the cameras were rolling."
Wow – so I guess this is shaping up to be a very different season of RHONJ after all. I reserve judgment, of course, but this new positive direction is much preferred. Although I'm not liking that it's so fake!
I guess everyone felt they better salvage what's left of their image after last season, huh?
TELL US – IS THIS A SIGN OF PEACE TO COME TO RHONJ? DO YOU BELIEVE EVERYONE CAN LEARN TO GET ALONG AGAIN?
