Among the various Gorga family feuds, Teresa's father is also at odds with Kathy Wakile's mother and they have been for years! This week Teresa and Rosie Pierri sat down to try and iron out differences and be a family again. Our source gives us an EXCLUSIVE back story about the Gorga family feuds, both Original Flavor (old school) and Reality TV Flavor (New School starring Poison and Teresa!).
Apparently part of Teresa's parent's drama with Kathy centers around her decision to join RHONJ despite the family issues. "Teresa's parents were against Melissa [Gorga], Joe, and Kathy joining the show. Why? Because of all the family drama. Who would want their family drama on TV? So, yes, Teresa's father holds a grudge against Kathy and her family as well as their own son and his wife."

"On the show Sunday night and in Melissa's blog she says that if her mother didn't want the information about her dad in the book, she would have never done it," our source reminds us. "She wouldn't throw 'her' family under the bus. Funny isn't it, since she threw her husband's family under the bus on national TV."
And therein lies Teresa's parents' loyalty! "No matter what Teresa did or didn't do in the eyes of their parents, Joe and Melissa disgraced the family by going on the show. They knew the intention was to sabotage Teresa, so can you blame them?"
As for Melissa's so-called book worthy marriage, our source once again calls that pure fiction! "Melissa talks so much about her wonderful marriage. She doesn't talk much about their early years."
"She doesn't talk about how she felt like #2 and Teresa was #1. She doesn't talk about all their fights. She is just telling you what she thinks will sell," our source insists. "There isn't ONE person who knows them well, who says 'I admire their marriage' The only people who may say that are those who see the fake marriage they portray for TV." Fake marriage like the fake marble in their bathroom? LOL
Our source says that everyone pretending they want to get along is more fiction! "It's really sickening to watch Joe, Melissa, and Kathy to talk about how much they want to be a family when they joined a show with one common enemy….Teresa."
"Teresa's parents will never forgive them. So, that is the guilt Joe has to live with and long after they are gone…..he shamed his family," our source says. "If the roles were reversed, Teresa would not have gone on the show. Teresa listens to her parents as though she is a child. She would never want to hurt or upset them."
Next week Teresa's parents will make an appearance on the show. Their first one since season 3. It should be interesting to see their reactions to all the drama!
