Real Housewives of New Jersey has one thing that the other franchises don’t – househusbands who are prominently featured in the drama of the show. And it works. They have their own scenes and their own bond. But that also means that they have their own drama. And none of them have drama quite like Teresa Giudice’s now ex-husband Joe “Juicy” Giudice and her brother, Joe Gorga. The ex-brother-in-laws have been duking it out for years, both on screen and off. Christening from hell anyone?
Their drama continues, thanks to a first look at the RHONJ season 12 trailer. During the teaser, Gorga was shown saying of his niece, Gia Giudice, “She looks at me like I’m the devil. Her father was the devil.” Gia, who was standing close by, responded, “That’s when I walk away from you.”
Juicy fired back at Joe and told Celebuzz!, “He should be embarrassed after all I’ve done for him, his family, his parents, and everything else. And he continues to be a jack*ss saying things about me in front of my kids in public. I mean, it doesn’t make any sense. He’s obviously lost his marbles. He doesn’t make any sense at all.” He added, “Without me he still would be climbing trees, cutting branches. He should grow up!”

This is just one more thing in the long list of issues the two have had over the years. One of the more spacious claims was made by Juicy, who accused Joe of stealing money from their parents. Juicy claimed that Joe “took money from his dad” that caused his parents to lose their home and subsequently rent a place. Said Juicy, “The parents lost everything because of Joe Gorga. Teresa and me had to care for them throughout our marriage to help them — that is why we were close. She cared for her parents, but Joe never helped.”
For his part, Gorga has claimed that Juicy has said “nasty things” to his sister Teresa and ruined their family. He added, “As a brother, she confides in me. I get very upset, so I get so mad when she kind of defends him because he just treats her very bad off-camera, in life. And he put her in person. And her ruined our entire family, so I’m just not happy.”
Unfortunately for Teresa, who is still caught in the middle, it doesn’t look like this feud will end anytime soon.
