Melissa Gorga yelled at Teresa Giudice for “putting s–t” on her during a heated argument on Tuesday’s episode of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey.”
When the OG of Jersey blamed her sister-in-law, 43, for inciting Margaret Josephs to bring up rumors about Luis Ruelas last season, Gorga snapped.
She shouted, “Stop putting it on me! Stop putting it on me! I didn’t f–king do it. I’m sick of you putting s–t on me!”
However, Giudice, 50, insisted that it was Gorga who had “started” the screaming match before emphasizing that “family is everything” to her.
Gorga — who told Giudice that she was “so sick” of hearing her preach about “family, family, family” after last year’s wedding drama — then said in a confessional, “Somehow, some way, all roads lead to Melissa. [Giudice] will never blame herself.”
The sisters-in-law’s explosive argument began over Giudice purposely excluding the Gorgas from her family table at her engagement party in December 2021.
“She was sitting at my table because she asked to move to the other table,” Giudice claimed to the ladies.
Gorga immediately looked stunned and asked if she was kidding, to which Giudice said she “swear[s]” that’s the truth.
“Teresa!” Gorga said with her mouth ajar. “Hold on, hold on — I thought right now you would never look at me in the eyes and lie, but you’re going to say you sat me at [your table]?”
Giudice maintained that she was “not lying,” but Gorga doubled down that she sat them at a table with Jennifer Aydin “and some hairdressers” while Giudice sat with Ruelas’ sisters.
Gorga further claimed, “You even came to me and apologized for not being at your table. You were like, ‘I’m sorry guys, don’t make a big deal over this.’”
“Why would I lie?” Giudice asked in a confessional. “Luis and I went up to my brother and Melissa and even told them, ‘you were supposed to be sitting at our table.’”
Their argument only continued to escalate when Giudice questioned Gorga’s intentions for bringing up the seating arrangements during the Season 12 reunion.
“We were fighting! You were yelling at your brother [Joe Gorga], calling him a piece of s–t basically — what do you mean?” Melissa yelled, which Giudice denied.
“You were horrible to us in New York! The engagement thing, the wedding thing, if you don’t wanna own that either, that’s cool.”
In addition to the Gorga family’s alleged table placement during the engagement party, Giudice also stirred the pot when she publicly revealed that Melissa would not be a bridesmaid.
Page Six broke the news that after months of turmoil between the two families, the Gorgas would not be attending Giudice and Ruelas’ wedding in August.
The two families have only grown further apart — with co-star Dolores Catania saying it’s time for them to “part ways” after years of explosive arguments.
“The Real Housewives of New Jersey” airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
