Teresa Stands by Claim That Melissa's a Gold Digger on 'Real Housewives' Reunion (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Oct 17th 2011 7:30AM
'The Real Housewives of New Jersey'The women usually try to pretend that they've made at least a temporary peace with one another on these shows, but that wasn't the case on this reunion episode of 'The Real Housewives of New Jersey' (Sun., 10PM ET on Bravo). And just a couple of weeks ago, it seemed like they were all going to get along on the show, much less after.

But it all fell apart, and now Teresa is clearly public enemy number one. As she said at one point, "This is so funny to me. It's like three to one."

She almost seemed to be enjoying the other women coming after her, and she certainly wasted no time in lashing out at them. When Andy Cohen brought up that Teresa had called her sister-in-law Melissa a gold digger, Teresa stuck by her assessment.

Melissa Gorga Clarifies: I Wasn't a Stripper (Just a Bikini Bartender)

by Alex Moaba, posted Oct 1st 2011 4:45PM
'Real Housewives of New Jersey' star Melissa Gorga would like to set the record straight. She was never a stripper, she says, but rather a bartender at a bikini bar.

The drama all started when HuffPost Celeb's Rob Shuter reported that while filming a recent episode, Gorga was ambushed when her former boss from the New Jersey establishment Lookers showed up at an event. Depending on what you believe, it may have been a "set-up" orchestrated by Bravo producers or her sister-in-law Teresa Giudice.

Gorga clarified the report in her blog: "As everyone knows we are filming season 4 so there is not too much I can confirm, but there is one thing that I would like to clarify...the accusation that I was once a dancer at a strip club. This is 100% NOT TRUE. I did bartend for a few weeks at a bikini bar while I was in college. My outfit was a tank top, shorts and sneakers. SORRY, no bubbies there."

She later cited a New Jersey law which states that Go Go bars that allow nudity may not also serve alcohol.

Listen to the Latest 'Real Housewives' Single

Melissa GorgaThe question of our generation: Why are 'Real Housewives' constantly releasing songs about how famous they are, and how difficult their lives are because of it?

I refuse to believe that people really bother them about their fame on a daily basis. Then again, you have to have a healthy sense of self and a ton of confidence to go on one of those shows anyway, so it shouldn't be that surprising.

The latest housewife to delude herself into thinking she'll have a recording career is 'The Real Housewives of New Jersey' star Melissa Gorga. Listen to 'On Display,' then judge me for having enough of a working knowledge of 'Housewives' singles to declare that she might actually have the best voice of them all.

Real Housewives of New JerseyWhen you're on a reality show, you can only control so much of how you're perceived. Just ask 'Real Housewives of New Jersey' stars Melissa Gorga and Caroline Manzo.

This is Caroline's third season, and the proud mama bear of the group said it's been a crazy couple of years.

"It's been a tremendous experience," she said. "I wanted something interesting to do with my family and I got a whirlwind of an experience."

Melissa, sister-in-law to Teresa Giudice, has been involved with the season's biggest storyline, the feud between her husband Joe, and Teresa. While the cameras showed some clashes between Melissa and Teresa, Melissa said it's not exactly accurate.

"[The feud] really is between a brother and a sister, "Melissa said. "And I do get caught in the middle."

We don't usually tune in to 'Live With Regis and Kelly' (weekdays, syndicated) for hard-hitting, emotionally raw interviews, but Reeg stepped up Friday and got real with 'The Real Housewives of New Jersey' stars Teresa Giudice and her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga.

They've been feuding on the show this season, and Regis zeroed in on how the reality TV drama was affecting their real-life families, particularly Teresa and Joe Giudice's parents.

"What do your mother and father say about this?" he asked Teresa.

"I don't think they ever want to be on the show again, because they're disgusted. Look, my legs are shaking now, just saying that about my parents."

She has a beautiful house, a beautiful life, beautiful children. That's ridiculous. I definitely don't think she's jealous of me," Gorga said.

'The Real Housewives of New Jersey'For the Season 3 premiere of 'The Real Housewives of New Jersey' (Mon., 10PM ET on Bravo), the series added Melissa Gorga to the cast. Now, Gorga just happens to be the sister-in-law of Teresa Giudice, which also means the addition of Teresa's brother, Joe.

More family means more family drama, and they wasted no time with it. Teresa and Melissa don't get along at all, and she's thus estranged from her brother as well. So, why not get them together at a banquet for the Christening of Melissa and Joe's son?

Her brother Joe rebuffs her when she comes over to offer congratulations, telling her to "do what you do everyday. Just walk the f*** away." Later, he calls her "garbage."
