The friendship between Real Housewives of New Jersey stars, Siggy Flicker and Melissa Gorga has hit the skids.
The Season 8 feud stems from the reality veteran’s war with Posche boutique owner, Kim DePaola, AllAboutTheTea.com can exclusively report.
The Jersey franchise kicks off tonight, and the drama is in full swing when Melissa comes for Kim D. — labeling the boutique owner a “cockroach” and a “rat.” Melissa will unleash her inner bitch this season, and Kim D. will feel the heat.

AllAboutTheTea.com can exclusively report that Wednesday night’s premiere will include a heavy gossip session between Melissa and returning RHONJ cast member, Danielle Staub — and the chatter is all about Kim D.
Melissa Gorga RHONJ Season 8
Porn star and convicted felon, Danielle, claims that Kim set her up 8 years ago, when Ashlee Holmes yanked out her weave during a wild Country Club brawl. In the 2010 melee, Teresa Giudice chased, threatened and cursed at Danielle. Kim has always maintained that she played no part in the drama.
Melissa is also salty with the boutique owner — over her ENVY boutique shutdown in January, slams Kim D — calling her a “rat” in a talking head confessional spot. According to the RHONJ diva, Kim conspired with her former business partner, Jackie Robinson, to liquidate ENVY, after Jackie cut off their business relationship.
However, AllAboutTheTea.com exclusively reported a vastly different scenario — that Melissa allegedly ran the business into the ground. Jackie ultimately moved all the store’s merchandise to Kim’s boutique for a series of fire sales.
“Melissa was using the ENVY credit card to charge clothing from other boutiques to wear on the Real Housewives of New Jersey,” an insider reported at the time. “Jackie cleaned out the store and took the merchandise to Kim D., hoping to recoup part of the money she lost.”
Siggy breaks away from the script and will take Kim’s side in the feud, AllAboutTheTea.com can exclusively report. As a result, tensions heat up when Melissa accuses Siggy of being “afraid” of Kim, warning her that Kim will “stab her in the back.”

Later in the season, the “On Display,” singer’s contempt deepens when Siggy decides to walk in this year’s Posche Fashion Show. Siggy’s move follows an epic chair-throwing brawl between Kim D. and Teresa Giudice. Melissa brands Siggy’s decision as a betrayal.
Shame on you Bravo! Make Kim DePaola a full-time Garden State Housewife — she’s the “Real” deal — and will undoubtedly breathe life into season 8!
