Teresa Giudice is the master of putting on a happy face, despite the drama surrounding her. She’s always pretending everything is fine! But finally, unfortunately, the facade is being forced to crack as she and husband Joe Giudice deal with the upcoming federal sentencing related to a 41 count fraud indictment and the sudden loss of Joe’s father.
In addition, with Real Housewives of New Jersey airing, Teresa’s problems are about to be thrust in our faces to dissect. And of course, since nothing with RHONJ is as it seems, the recent so-called reunited Teresa and Melissa Gorga are already falling apart.
Reality Tea received an exclusive scoop from an inside source about what’s going on behind the scenes at RHONJ ‘Headquarters’.

“The Giudice family is broken. The death of Frank Giudice has left his wife and children (Joe, Pete, & Maria) devastated. He was their rock,” our source, sadly, begins. “Joe often cries. His father was his best friend as well as his father. He was a great man who would do anything for his children. They are coping day by day and just going through the motions.”
Making things worse is the lack of support Teresa is receiving from her brother Joe and his wife Melissa. “Melissa and Teresa are not ‘fine’, things are not ‘good’ like they have said to several press outlets this week,” our source continues.
“Yes, you will see them getting along this season for the cameras. You will also see them interviewing saying they get along. Bravo wants to squash the old story line of them feuding.” Yes – because whatever happens behind the scenes with these two if I have to see one more season of Terlissa the Two-Foreheaded Beast feuding…heads are gonna roll!
Things started to fall apart – again – for Teresa and Melissa over the passing of Frank. “When Teresa’s father in law died, it was a horrible and tragic situation. The family was in so much pain. Joe Gorga has known Frank Giudice since he was a baby. Melissa, Joe, and the kids went to Teresa’s house the night he passed away to give their condolences and that was it.”
“Melissa, Joe, and the kids then spent the weekend down the shore at their beach house,” says our source. “Melissa was posting pictures of her and Joe at Jersey Shore clubs while Joe, Teresa, and the kids were mourning their father in law and grandfather. That wasn’t well received by Teresa or Joe.”
According to our source Melissa continued to show disrespect for the family’s mourning. “The wake for Teresa’s father in law was on a Sunday and, of course, they [The Gorgas] came late, in fact, close to the end because they were coming up from the shore. Melissa doesn’t like anyone to damper her shore weekends. Again, Joe Gorga grew up with this man they should have been much more present during such a terrible time.”
Well, like it or not, tonight Jersey returns. I’m excited, but also a little scared. I want so much for this show to be the show we all fell in love with, but that’s a bit like living in the past isn’t it? I mean Teresa’s not even able to pretend to be rich at this point! Nevertheless, I am very interested to watch and see how they handle Melissa’s new (and ulterior-motive packing) former friend Amber Marchese, Teresa’s indictment, and Dina Manzo‘s return – rumor has it she and Melissa are anything but close, and of course all the trouble RHONJ is about to have with twins!
Reality Tea will be live-tweeting so join us, join us, join us! You know how we do a good RHONJ snark.
UPDATE: Our source reached out again about the photo questions – “Regarding the people saying Melissa has nothing on her Instagram, it’s because she deleted the photos. She had them up and then took them down. Her sister Lysa has one up from dinner that evening. They were at Hemmingways later that night. A club in south jersey.”
