NJ Housewife Teresa Giudice’s Huge Wedding Was Saturday, But Her Own Family Didn’t Go
It looks like the on-again-off-again Giudice/Gorga family feud is back on.
This past Saturday was the wedding reality tv fans have been looking forward to for ages. New Jersey Housewife Teresa Giudice and Louie Ruelas tied the knot after over two years of dating.
The wedding was huge (and so was her hair). But two guests were noticeably missing: her brother and sister-in-law Joe and Melissa Gorga. Before I get into the details of the latest family drama, here's everything we know about her big day.
Where did Teresa Giudice and Louie Ruelas' have their wedding?
Although the couple was debating different wedding venues in New York City and even Italy, they decided to stay true to their New Jersey roots and get married at the Park Chateau Estate & Gardens in East Brunswick.
Why didn't Joe and Melissa Gorga show up at Teresa and Louie's wedding?
Joe and Teresa's rocky brother and sister relationship has been documented on The Real Housewives of New Jersey. The two were close growing up but drifted apart once he married Melissa Gorga.
There's always been a tit-for-tat dynamic between the sisters-in-law, but Melissa and Teresa had buried the ax on the reality show. Or so we thought.
On Friday, just one day before the wedding, Melissa and Joe announced they wouldn't be in attendance. They spent the night partying with Melissa's family and throwing subtle digs at Teresa through Instagram stories. One family member posted a story captioned "way better than a wedding," and Joe Gorga shared a photo with Melissa's relatives saying "blood doesn't make you family."
Page Six reports that a fight on the finale episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey between Melissa and Teresa sparked the last-minute decision for the Gorgas to miss the wedding; allegedly, Teresa started a rumor that Melissa was cheating on Joe. Not cool.
Other gossip sites are now reporting that Teresa has sent her brother a bill for not attending. No word on if that's true, but it is funny.
The Gorgas weren't the only people close to Teresa not at her wedding. Her best friend and former maid of honor Dina Manzo skipped out on the event. Sources were saying it was because Dina did not want to be filmed for the wedding spinoff, but her sharing a cryptic message about ending things the day of Teresa's wedding leads us to believe something deeper is going on.
Hopefully, we'll get to see it unfold on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, and on her spin-off. All drama aside, it looks like Teresa was still able to enjoy her wedding with her new husband.
