Teresa Giudice Accuses Brother Joe & His Wife Melissa Gorga Of Sending Her To Prison

In the intense first part of the Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion, Teresa Giudice accused her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga of sending her to federal prison.

Towards the end of the episode, Teresa accused Melissa and her husband Joe Gorga – who is Teresa‘s brother – of being the ones that called the Feds on her and ex-husband Joe Giudice resulting in them being sent to prison.

Back in 2014, Teresa and Joe Giudice pleaded guilty to 41 counts of fraud, following a deal struck with federal prosecutors. She got a 15 month federal prison sentencing, while Joe Giudice got 41 months. Teresa was released from prison 2015 and returned home to her kids. Joe Giudice completed his prison sentence in 2019 and then was deported back to Italy. They divorced shortly after his deportation.

For years, Teresa has accused former co-star/friend Caroline Manzo of being the person that called the Feds on them. She also once accused former co-star Jacqueline Laurita of putting her in jail.

After rekindling her friendship with Jacqueline, Teresa claimed during the reunion that Jacqueline told her that Melissa was the one who put her in jail.

“Jacqueline told me so much s–t that you and my brother were doing,” Teresa tarted. “Joe [Giudice]‘s ex-partner, he didn’t go to jail because he outed me. They were hanging out with him and they were speaking with him.”

Melissa denied ever talking to Joe Giudice‘s former business associate, saying, “I didn’t even know Joe Giudice’s ex-partner. This is like [when you said] Caroline Manzo put you in jail.”

Teresa hit back saying that she now doesn’t believe Caroline was the one that put her in jail.

“I take that back,” Teresa said. “I think you did.”

Part one of the reunion ended there and fans will have to wait until next week to see how Melissa responded to Teresa‘s allegations.

During the season finale, fans finally learned the real reason why Melissa and Joe Gorga didn’t attend Teresa‘s wedding to Louie Ruelas.

I have no idea if these accusations are true, but I have heard the rumors regarding Joe having a hand in calling the Feds on Joe Giudice. If evidence proves these accusations true ain't no good gonna come to the Gorgas.

I'm actually glad RHONJ producers have decided to put the show on pause so they can figure out how to move forward, because if Teresa is going to act like she runs the show (when she doesn't) , the execs need to remind these women that they're nothing more than talent that can be easily replaced.
