Melissa Gorga was out on the town last night with her little Poisonito, Joe for a movie premiere for The Grown Ups 2. Those lucky ducks! The Real Housewives of New Jersey star took the time to address the cheating allegations lobbed at her on Sunday's episode.
Melissa dismisses the rumors as "disgusting" and levels equal disgust at Teresa Giudice for not defending her when the topic came up. After all if Teresa was really sincere about retreating to a castle to make her family a fairy tale she should have at least told Jan to shut it when she accused Melissa of stepping out on The Joew 2.0.
"I've never cheated on Joe," Melissa informs Us Weekly. "This is all disappointing." Melissa's ex-friend (and former bridesmaid) Jan claimed that Melissa was caught giving her ex-boyfriend Bryan "bl*wj*bs, among other things.

As for Teresa's role in not denying it, Melissa is even more outraged. "I'm putting the blame on that she sat there, listened to the rumors, and didn't call me," Melissa complains.
"No matter how much you can't stomach me, I'm your brother's wife!" Melissa says. "When you hear an accusation as disgusting as this, that's going to be on national television, how do you not walk away from the table?"
Teresa's friend Heather took to twitter after the episode and insists editing reconstructed the scene to make Teresa look guilty. Heather claims Teresa walked away when Jan started making accusations against Melissa and that Melissa knew what happened but is claiming she does not.
Despite her outrage, Melissa reminds us that at that time the families were in a different place and things were not good.
"I was fed up with trying. I was fed up of being set up," Melissa explains, referring to last season's stripper-gate. "I'm not gonna allow my children to hear things about me and I don't want that kind of talk around my children."
"At the end of the day, I love our extended family, I love my sisters, I love Joe's sister," Melissa says, "but it's about my kids and it's about my husband and that's who I'm protecting as a mother."
The families have since worked through many of their differences, but all the women on the show have admitted it's difficult to watch these episodes and continue to look toward the future.
