Teresa, 50, said about her missing wedding guests, “Listen, I found out a few days before my wedding that they weren’t coming, and I’m totally fine with it.” The Real Housewives of New Jersey star spoke about Melissa and Joe during the first episode of her new podcast show, ‘Namaste B$tches.’ The Bravo star added, “The way that everything played out with my wedding, everything that happened is the way it was supposed to be. I’m all about that… I’m all about good energy, and whoever wanted to be at my wedding was there.”
The Gorgas decided to skip the New Jersey-style wedding after Teresa brought up cheating rumors about Melissa, 43. They were all filming the finale of The Real Housewives of New Jersey when Teresa accused Melissa of cheating on her brother. Melissa had also talked about why she skipped her sister-in-law’s wedding on an episode of her ‘On Display’ podcast. “Sometimes when things are too toxic and you try over and over and over again and it just keeps coming back around to the same thing… even if it’s family, you have to let it go.”
A source told Page Six, that the couple didn’t want to attend because of Teresa’s toxicity. “Teresa betrayed them in a way that’s unforgivable. They’re not going to celebrate Teresa’s new marriage when all she does is try to tear apart theirs.” They also pointed out that other family members like Kathy Wakile and Rosie Pierri skipped the wedding. Melissa’s friend and RHONJ star, Jackie Goldschneider, said, “Knowing the lead-up to making that decision, I was not shocked at all. I completely understand and support them not having attended the wedding.”
Real Housewives of Atlanta star, Cynthia Bailey, who attended Teresa’s wedding also said it was sad that Melissa and Joe didn’t attend the wedding. Cynthia, 55, added, “because I do feel like, at the end of the day, whatever they’re going through, you can’t get that moment back to be a part of a celebration like that.”

Bravo fans responded to Teresa’s comments on her podcast and wondered why she was still talking about the Gorgas. “Why does she need to talk about Melissa and Joe on her podcast if she’s so damn great? She can’t even talk about it because it’s filmed.” Somebody else tweeted, “Hmm I thought she was so “unbothered” by Melissa and Joe? She sounds pretty bothered if you ask me.”
