Joe and Melissa Gorga attended the MTV VMAs Sunday night, which stirred up more controversy in the Gorga/Giudice family when Teresa sent out a tweet insisting she turned down the offer to attend. “Gia just found out I turned down the VMAs to spend the weekend w/family & she said, “I know you love us, but you have GOT to be kidding me!”
When a fan tweeted Teresa, saying she was just making a snarky comment towards Melissa, she wrote, “Bravo invited all of us thank you very much. Kisses.” But RealityTea reports none of the other Housewives were invited to the show. “Bravo never invited the housewives to the VMAs – only to a few after parties that weren’t being hosted by MTV.”
Jacqueline Laurita also echoed the site’s reports when a fan asked her if she was going to the event. “Weren’t you invited too Jac??” a fan tweeted. “Bravo invited you all.” Jacqueline responded, “No they didn’t. Ashlee was invited though.”
My guess is Melissa and Joe were invited because they appeared on MTV’s Special: Restore The Shore, where they helped answer phones to raise money to restore damages at the Jersey Shore after Hurricane Sandy.
