She’s giving her side! Melissa Gorga believes that Teresa Giudice and Luis Ruelas leaked their private messages earlier this year. The texts caused quite a buzz when they seemed to prove that Melissa had been lying in the season premiere of The Real Housewives of New Jersey about the circumstances of their family falling out.
Melissa is now speaking out about the drama and explaining what she thinks happened.
Melissa Gorga is calling out Teresa Giudice yet another time.
In the latest update in their The Real Housewives of New Jersey drama, Melissa is alleging that Teresa took her messages to the press. The texts between the co-stars were leaked back in February.
Instagram account @allabouttrh shared exclusive texts from Melissa to her sister-in-law, which seemed to show that she was not telling the truth during the season 13 premiere.
“Melissa Gorga exposed after lying on the season 13 premiere of RHONJ,” the account captioned the screenshots. “During the episode, both Melissa and Joe Gorga state they haven’t heard from Teresa Giudice since March 31st when Melissa texted Teresa after filming the season twelve reunion. We are now exclusively releasing text messages between Melissa Gorga & Teresa Giudice that are not edited/or cropped like the ones shown on the premiere.”
The post continued, “These text messages have the full context between Melissa Gorga & Teresa Giudice’s conversation from March 31st-Mid May where they have multiple conversations. Filming for season 13 began on May 16.”
In the screenshots, Teresa texted Melissa on May 3.
“After watching the reunion I do feel and know that our families have gone backwards. I want us to be a better example for our children, starting with myself,” Teresa’s message to Melissa read. “I love you and I just want things to be better. Are you free for lunch next week?”
“Teresa, I texted you driving home from the reunion and you never answered back until now. It seems a little calculated to me that you actually have to watch the reunion and read comments to make yourself feel like you wanna fix the family again for the on hundredth time,” Melissa’s response read. “I feel like this ext is about you and not really about us. Especially when we’re just about to go into filming again in two weeks. After all these years I’ve finally found a way to accept the way our relationship is. For our children I don’t wanna argue with you, let’s just leave it as is and be what we are.”
Melissa added that there was no need to have lunch and that Tre drew a line in the sand with the wedding. She added that she agrees the two will never be friends but they can be family.
“I am sorry I did not respond to you that night we had a very very long day and I was totally exhausted and not feeling so good especially after surgery,” Teresa replied. “Thank you so much for what you said it was so heartfelt and genuine. We are family and we can do better starting with me. I am so sorry about the wedding I feel terrible that I hurt you from the bottom of my heart. Let’s talk about it would the world to me.”
Melissa reiterated the fact that she was fine and didn’t want to meet up with her sister-in-law.
Days later, Teresa texted Melissa for her birthday and offered to have her over for cake. Melissa said she and Joe didn’t have time and later sent Teresa flowers.
