I am loving Real Housewives of New Jersey this season. Of course, there is still bad blood between Melissa Gorga and Jennifer Aydin. Last season, Jennifer indulged her tequila monster and tossed a set of silverware at Melissa during a luncheon in the Hamptons.
During the Season 11 RHONJ premiere, newbie Michelle Pais dropped a bomb on Jennifer. She told her that Joe Gorga, Melissa’s husband, owed her husband “tens of thousands of dollars.” Michelle’s husband, Jonathan Steingraber, spoke at Joe’s “Growing with Gorga” event, but supposedly wasn’t paid.
After discussing it with co-star Dolores Catania, Jennifer told Melissa what Michelle said. When Teresa Giudice had a pool party, her brother, Joe Gorga, talked to Jonathan. They ended up agreeing that Joe didn’t owe him money and that there was a miscommunication. The situation seemed so sketchy.
And Jennifer sided with Teresa defending her ex-husband, Joe Giudice, in an argument with Melissa and Joe Gorga. Melissa tossed a cheese plate because Teresa never criticized Joe Giudice when he dissed the couple.
During the most recent episode of the show everybody finally made up. But everyone was still pissed at Jennifer for telling Teresa what happened at guy’s night. If Teresa didn’t unleash the intel that Margaret Josephs’ husband, Joe Benigno, also heard the rumor about Evan Goldschneider cheating, there would have been a peaceful dinner.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Melissa detailed why she will never be friends with Jennifer. Melissa said, “With her it’s like, ‘Oh, what should I do? Oh, I’m going to get you.’ No, I have no time for Jennifer. I really don’t. Sorry,” Melissa shared. “I feel like she talks about her whole family. She talks about everyone other than herself and her marriage. It’s like, ‘I’m going to use my, first we’re going to go with my brother, then my parents’ marriage. Now we’re going to go through my daughter…’” Melissa continued.

“But no, we want to hear about you. Is there anything? Do you got anything? No, she doesn’t. She just wants to say, ‘Melissa is self-absorbed’ all day. ‘Melissa is self-absorbed’ is all you got?” Apparently, that dig struck a nerve with Melissa.
The mom of three remarked, “At least give me something better than that. It’s like, she sees Jackie [Goldschneider] having a real argument with Teresa. She like, ‘All right, I guess I need to go for Melissa.'”
Jennifer and Melissa have always clashed. “Like no, why don’t you really get mad at something for real? Instead of just pulling things out of your a**. That’s what I want to say to Jennifer,” Melissa commented.
It seemed like Melissa appreciated Jennifer telling her about the rumor Michelle was spreading about Joe Gorga. When Melissa watched the actual RHONJ episodes, her feelings changed.
“She doesn’t have any guts. In her confessionals, it was like, ‘Probably true. It’s probably this…’ She talks when you’re not in front of her, and now I’m seeing all that,” Melissa explained. “So maybe I should have killed the messenger or gave her a hard time. Instead, Melissa, over here, it gives her the benefit of the doubt.” Sure, Melissa.
“And I’m like, ‘It’s all right. Someone told you something you’re telling me.’ But no, not to my face. Like in the confessionals, she’s got a lot to say,” Melissa added. “Say it to my face.”
