Melissa Gorga appeared on WWHL this week after an all new episode of RHONJ.
Melissa was forced to talk about her history with Danielle Staub when a caller asked, “Danielle and you are becoming really good friends. I wanted to know, years ago Danielle said that you went over her house and you denied it. Did you two ever talk about that?”
Melissa explained, “Wait. That I went to her house? “I actually met Danielle for the first time filming this show. We exchanged emails and had met through the internet or whatever, but we never met before I filmed with her.” Andy Cohen added, “I want to dig a little deeper into that at the reunion, I think.”
Melissa also explained that she didn’t mean to offend her sister-in-law Teresa Giudice with her parenting advice. Melissa told Teresa earlier this season that she is too lax with her four daughters.
“I think Teresa even says throughout the episode that I was right about it. And it’s not a negative thing at all. She gives them so much love; it’s really not a negative thing,” Melissa explained. “It’s kind of like sisterly advice. She doesn’t have a sister, and so from an outside looking in, sometimes she can be a little too lenient.”
A caller asked Melissa to weigh in on a touchy topic: Does she think Siggy Flicker is hypocritical for “preaching about women’s empowerment,” yet “starting fights” amid the New Jersey pals? Melissa paused before admitting that she does get embarrassed when Siggy speaks loudly and causes a scene. But she also said that she’d tell Siggy the same thing to her face.
Gorga revealed that Joe Giudice is doing “well,” and that she has not gone to visit him but her husband Joe Gorga has. Melissa said she has talked to Giudice on the phone a lot because Teresa was at her shore house “all summer.”
Melissa revealed the current status of her and Teresa’s relationships with their cousins Kathy Wakile and Rosie Pierri. “We don’t see them too much anymore, honestly, so yeah… that’s the status.” Melissa shared.
