Season 11 of Real Housewives of New Jersey began in epic fashion. Jackie Goldschneider decided to have a birthday party for her husband, Evan Goldschneider. RHONJ viewers watched Teresa Giudice mix and mingle during the party while floating the rumor that Evan is cheating at the gym. Teresa’s sister-in-law, Melissa Gorga, was floored by Teresa’s behavior.
During a sit-down with Jackie, Teresa refused to apologize and refused to say who told her the scandalous information. Jackie, in a misguided effort to make Teresa understand the damage that she had done, tossed out an analogy about Teresa’s daughter.
“I heard Gia [Giudice] snorts coke in the bathroom at parties. I don’t know where I heard it from… It’s the same thing!” Jackie exclaimed. A furious Teresa stormed out of their meeting. Jackie doesn’t regret using that analogy. And Teresa isn’t planning on forgiving Jackie for bringing up Gia. She also isn’t sorry for mentioning the rumor.
This latest drama puts Melissa in the middle between Teresa and her friend, Jackie. Sadly, for Melissa, this is a familiar place for her to be. Sometimes, Melissa is tired of sticking up for Teresa. “It’s like when I’m doing the right thing, and you will see, I’m literally sticking up for her, we did it wrong,” Melissa claimed. “So, guess what? I’m done sticking up for anyone.”

During the cast trip to Lake George, Jackie dipped out of attending. That may be her best decision all season. When the ladies tried to make Teresa see how spreading the rumor was wrong, she had a meltdown and left the room. Just another relaxing girls’ trip for the RHONJ cast.
During an interview with E! News, Melissa discussed the woes of trying to deal with Teresa on a daily basis. Cue the violins! Melissa shared, “That’s the story of my life, constantly trying to figure out how to tell Teresa I don’t agree with her without her thinking that I’m going against her and ‘the fam.’ It’s always been difficult for me,” Melissa explained.

“So, it comes down to it, we’ve been on this show long enough. It’s not even about that anymore, it’s about what’s right is right and what’s wrong is wrong,” Melissa remarked. “And whether you’re my sister or my best friend or my husband, when you’re wrong, you’re wrong.”
I’m not sure how that is going to fly with Teresa and Melissa’s husband, and Teresa’s brother, Joe Gorga. Good luck with that, girl. You’re going to need it.
