Teresa Giudice Was Surprised Excluding Melissa Gorga From Her Bridal Party Made Melissa and Joe Gorga Upset; Says “I Didn’t Think It Was Going To Be A Big Deal”

Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice was furious when her brother, Joe Gorga, and his wife, Melissa Gorga, joined the show. This franchise centers on family more than any other Housewives series. But at the Season 12 reunion, RHONJ viewers saw a family disintegrate. Teresa was still angry that years ago, Joe and Melissa didn’t move their wedding date because she was pregnant. Oof.

Then Teresa called her brother a “bitch boy” before Joe stormed off stage. She was raging at the reunion, and it was a little scary. Both Melissa and Teresa admitted that they weren’t close, and they were done pretending. Wow!

Now that Teresa is getting ready to wed her “soulmate,” Luis “Louie” Ruelas, the man with the questionable past, there is even more drama about her wedding. During an appearance on Watch What Happens Live, Teresa revealed that she will have eight bridesmaids, but none of her co-stars got the nod. “Please guys, don’t make a big deal about it,” Teresa commented. Oh, this was going to be a HUGE deal.

Melissa found out from watching TV that she wasn’t in the wedding. Joe bashed his sister for excluding his wife. “It’s more like there isn’t any respect. My sister, she was completely wrong, 100 percent,” Joe stated.

Teresa explained that she wanted everything done exactly the way she wanted for her wedding to Louie. “I’m not her best friend, she’s not my best friend,” Teresa said of Melissa. “But do we hang out like best friends? No, we don’t, and I’m okay with that.” That’s cold.

Melissa confirmed that they don’t meet up off-camera, and she doesn’t have any guilt about the way their relationship ended up. At this point, I’m wondering if Melissa and Joe will even attend this wedding.

Teresa told E! News that she did apologize to Joe after the reunion. “I don’t know why it got out of hand. I love him. I adore my brother,” Teresa stated. “I apologized to him for what I said. And that’s it.”

As for the drama about Melissa not being in her wedding, Teresa was “shocked” that Melissa and Joe even cared. The RHONJ star said, “I didn’t think it was going to be a big deal at all. And she said she’s fine with it now.” I think Teresa has a sprinkle cookie delivery in her future.

But Teresa isn’t ready to let go of her anger at Margaret Josephs for asking about Louie’s past. Teresa explained, “I just felt like if Margaret was my real friend, and how she said she was concerned for me, she wouldn’t have been doing what she was doing.”

She continued, “My real friends that are concerned wouldn’t keep going on and on and on and she kept going on and on and on. It’s like, if someone told me to stop, I would stop.” Yet Teresa is going on and on about this even after Louie told her to stop. Just saying.

According to Teresa, all the drama has brought her and Louie even closer together. “My poor baby. I felt so bad for him,” Teresa said, “I’m glad he’s still around because he could’ve been like ‘See ya.'”

While Teresa wouldn’t say whether her nuptials were going to be televised, she did discuss her future on RHONJ. “I’m gonna ride it out ’til the end. I’m excited. New chapter, new beginning,” Teresa remarked. “Of course, I want you guys to come along for the ride. [I’m] working on myself so I want you guys to see all that. I want you guys to be proud of me.”
