Melissa Gorga Shades Joe Giudice; Says She “Never Thought He Was The Greatest”

Joe Giudice is playing a major role on this season of Real Housewives of New Jersey, even if it is by phone.  Viewers listen in as he calls his family from the ICE detention center. We also hear him argue with, and insult his wife, Teresa Giudice. He even told her that no one would want her because she has too much baggage. In my opinion, the only baggage that Teresa has is living in Italy awaiting his final deportation decision.

It is clear that Joe and Teresa have gone their separate ways, although there is no official confirmation. Teresa and Joe’s four daughters spent the Christmas holiday with their father in Italy. Teresa spent Christmas Eve in the company of her high school boyfriend, “pool boy” Tony Delorenzo, at Joe Gorga and Melissa Gorga’s house. I am rooting for Tony and Teresa to get together. Just saying.

And now we can officially add Melissa to the list of people who are not fans of Joe Giudice. HollywoodLife reported that Melissa phoned into the Jonathan Cheban Foodgod podcast on February 6, and she majorly shaded her brother-in-law. Melissa said, “I’m really not close to him. I never was and I’m not gonna deny it.”

The RHONJ star and her husband have also stopped following Joe Giudice on social media. “We were never besties… I never thought he was the greatest. My husband unfollowed him on Instagram because he thinks [Joe Giudice is] crazy on Instagram,” Melissa revealed.

The boutique owner admitted that she thinks that Teresa and Joe splitting up was the best decision, given the situation. “It’s time to make new lives. I think they’ve both accepted it,” Melissa stated. “The only thing everybody was holding on for is, obviously, the kids, because they want their kids to have their parents together. But sometimes it just doesn’t work out and it’s not working out because they live in two different countries at this point, so it is what it is.”

On February 5, Teresa appeared on Watch What Happens Live, and she still couldn’t escape the behavior of her ex. Host Andy Cohen asked the “OG” Jersey Housewife about photos of her husband partying on a beach in Mexico with women in bikinis. Teresa wasn’t fazed by the photos. “I was totally fine with it. I’m not jealous,” she explained. Her daughters didn’t have the same chill reaction. Teresa said, “And I was just like, girls it’s fine, he’s living his life. And because I was fine with it, they were fine with it.”

I am a bit surprised that Melissa admitted her real feelings for Teresa’s husband. Watch out, Joe Giudice–there may be some sprinkle cookies coming your way!
