‘RHONJ’ Season 13 Reunion Tea Spilled … Everything That Went Down
On April 20, the cast gathered in NYC to film the Season 13 reunion and Teresa Giudice was allegedly “completely unhinged” and “out of control,” according to Page Six.
Teresa Giudice Goes Off
According to the tabloid, Teresa became heated, used a lot of foul language. Sources claim she was “nastier than ever,” even going as far as calling her co-star Margaret Josephs a “f–king whore.”
According to the outlet, the mother of four appeared “very unhappy” and “mad at the world.” They also observed that the reunion host, Andy Cohen, seemed “frustrated with her the entire time.”
Nonetheless, an insider insists that the Bravo executive was not, “any more frustrated with her than with the situation as a whole,” claiming Giudice got worked up only when the topic of her “family dynamics” came up.
“This was the first time Teresa, Melissa [Gorga] and Joe [Gorga] were gonna see each other in person,” the insider points out, emphasizing the trio’s “long history” of “deep-rooted family issues.”
Prior to the intense filming, Teresa had expressed some nervousness about seeing her brother and his wife, who are on good terms with Margaret. Their already-strained relationship had hit a new low in the past few months.
Last week, Teresa told Page Six that she expected an “uncomfortable” and “very weird” situation with the couple. Nevertheless, she expressed confidence that she would be able to handle it.
“It’s my job,” the longtime Bravolebrity said.
It is anticipated that Teresa’s relationship with the Gorgas will deteriorate further in the last episodes of the season. The season concludes with Melissa and Joe refusing to attend Teresa’s wedding to Luis Ruelas in August 2022.
In a recent episode, Teresa attributed Melissa’s estrangement from Joe to her “daddy issues” and opined that Joe “needs to get therapy.”
Teresa proceeded to accuse the Envy boutique owner of having her only sibling on “a leash.”
Teresa also questioned why Melissa’s daughter, Antonia Gorga, did not attend her third eldest daughter, Milania Giudice’s, 16th birthday party.
Melissa claimed that Antonia had a cheer competition in Pennsylvania on that day and reminded Teresa that her second eldest daughter, Gabriella Giudice, also missed her elder son Gino Gorga’s communion because of a soccer tournament.
Melissa then criticized Teresa for not asking her to be a bridesmaid, stating that this did not set “an example of what closeness is” for their children.
Regarding her history with Margaret Josephs — Teresa has accused the entrepreneur on multiple occasions of trying to destroy families by exposing private secrets.
Jennifer & Margaret Reconcile
Also in reunion news, Jennifer Aydin and Margaret Josephs resolve their differences. The two had previously feuded on the show over Margaret’s involvement in exposing Jennifer’s husband’s infidelity. They were able to reconcile after a heartfelt conversation where Jennifer expressed her desire to move past the drama.
Joe Gorga’s Lies Exposed
In addition, Joe Gorga was is in the hot seat regarding many allegations he’s made and was proven a liar after none of his claims against Luis Ruelas could be corroborated, according to Twitter account @MelissasOldNose.
As reported, Joe Gorga claimed a bad business deal between Luis Ruelas and Dina Manzo’s husband, Dave Cantin, was the reason Dina did not attend Teresa’s wedding. However, it was revealed at the reunion that Joe lied about the allegation.
Additionally, Joe alleged Luis Ruelas and Frank Catania Jr. had a falling out over business, however, Frank Jr. claims that’s false.
In the Season 13 finale of RHONJ, Joe Gorga alleges that his niece, Gia Giudice, had called him and asked him to dump Melissa. On April 20th during the reunion filming, Andy Cohen contacts Gia Giudice to confirm this allegation, but she denies it.
Andy Cohen shared multiple behind-the-scenes moments from the reunion on his Instagram Stories.
