During part one of The Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion show, “strippergate” was a topic discussed again after it was mentioned yet again during the ladies Vermont trip.
On the reunion show, Melissa Gorga flat-out accused Jacqueline Laurita of being an instigator in the rumor that she was a stripper pre-Joe Gorga.
Strippergate occurred several seasons ago at the Posche fashion show when a goombah named Angelo said he knew Melissa back in the day from working at a strip club. Kim DePaola has responded on Instagram that Teresa Giudice tried to get her to film during this season and say Jacqueline knew all about the set up. Kim told Teresa to stop the lies and stop the sabotage.
Fans know that Jacqueline was the one who actually tried to warn Melissa of what was about to go down at the fashion show, but now she’s getting the blame. It seems Teresa can’t admit to anything. She also blames Jacqueline and Caroline for her fraud conviction and jail sentence.
On a recent episode, Jacqueline swore on her children that she had no involvement in strippergate, but Melissa, who is finally on good terms with Teresa, refuses to believe her sister-in-law had anything to do with it and accused Jacqueline of being behind it all.
The question becomes, if Melissa really feels that Jacqueline was the one behind the strippergate rumors, why wait two years to speak up about it? Tell us what you think.
