Victoria Gotti rocked The Real Housewives of New Jersey Sunday night with shocking allegations that Rino Aprea cheated on his wife Teresa with her mother, Santa Napolitano. Gotti claimed that she was great friends with Rino, and he shared this private information with her when explaining why he and Teresa got divorced.
“He started talking about his divorce,” Gotti tells Teresa Giudice and Amber Marchese. “And he tells me this crazy story and he said, ‘It’s something she will never forgive me for,’ and I said, ‘You cheatedâ€¦'”
Gotti continued, “He says, ‘Well, it’s who I cheated with.’ I go what her sister? He went, ‘No.’ And I said who then? What would make herâ€¦ ”
“He just looked at me and he said, ‘Her mother,'” Gotti said.
Stating that Rino was not intoxicated when the conversation took place and that there were other people at the table who heard him say this, Gotti claims she said to Rino, “‘This is how gossip and rumors get started. You need to stop joking.'”
“He just looked at me and went, ‘I’m not joking,'” Victoria said.
