RHONJ’s Melissa Gorga could be fired after the current season as Nemesis sister-in-law Teresa Giudice ‘runs the show’
THE REAL Housewives of New Jersey star Melissa Gorga could be fired from the show over her nasty feud with sister-in-law Teresa Giudice, The US Sun has exclusively learned.
The Bravo star, 43, joined the show for season three in 2011 and has been a fixture on the series ever since.
Melissa and Teresa have been fighting for almost a year – and the feud could mean the end for the mother of three.
“This could be Melissa’s last season,” a source exclusively told The US Sun.
“When Teresa is done with you, you are done with the show.
“This has happened to former cast members in the past, and it can happen to Melissa.”
The source went on to state that Real Housewives of New Jersey OG, the only cast member to have been a part of the show from the beginning, “runs the show.”
“If it got to the point where Teresa was threatening not to come back because of Melissa, then Melissa would be the one getting fired,” the source added.
The US Sun has reached out to Bravo for comment.
The mother of three, Joe Gorga, has already threatened to leave the show.

During the Season 12 reunion, he got into a heated argument with his sister Teresa, 50.
He stormed off the stage and told everyone, “I’m done! F**k you guys… You know what? I stop!”
“I’M NOT A DIVA”
A few months ago, the mother-of-four addressed previous claims that she threatened to leave RHONJ if her sister-in-law wasn’t fired.
“That’s not true,” Teresa said on a September episode of her podcast, Namaste B$tches.
“I’m not that person. I would never ask for anything because if you act that cocky, Bravo will tell you, ‘Go hiking.’”
She continued, “Ask any Bravo executives. i am very professional I’m not a diva I work hard. I don’t act cocky way. I’m very humble. I’m very down to earth.”
Drama for the upcoming season was teased in the trailer released in December.
Teresa told cameras: “[Melissa’s] always wanted to keep my brother and I separate. She got her wish.”
This led to Melissa clapping back during a January episode of her podcast, “It’s such a joke for me to hear those words.
“I’m not saying there’s no way I’m perfect or that I haven’t done anything wrong, because I have been.
“But I definitely got pushed around and came back to get more and try again.”
PENDING FEUD EXPLAINED
The two sisters-in-law have been at odds for months, especially after Teresa failed to ask Melissa to be her bridesmaid at her wedding to Luis Ruelas in August 2022.
They then had a huge falling out involving Melissa’s husband Joe and Teresa’s husband Luis just before they tied the knot.
A source told The US Sun at the time: “Joe attacked Luis during filming after long-simmering tensions had escalated.
Luis was upset that Melissa wrongly blamed Teresa for the spread [cheating] rumours.”
This resulted in the Gorgas not attending the wedding.
The feud then continued as they avoided each other at BravoCon and spent the holidays separately.
“There is no communication whatsoever between them,” a source previously told The US Sun.
As the new season premieres next week, Teresa and Melissa will be committed to doing press for the show, but interviews will be done “separately.”
The source added, “They can’t stand the thought of being in the same room together.”
And the next time they face each other, they will “be at the reunion.”
Season 13 welcomes newcomers Danielle Cabral and Rachel Fuda.
Dolores Catania, Margaret Josephs and Jennifer Aydin also return, joining Teresa and Melissa.
Former RHONJ star Kim DePaola recently claimed Danielle was “made to be Teresa’s lapdog.”
The founder of Posche By Kim D claims on the podcast Behind The Velvet Rope with David Yontef: “[Teresa] doesn’t have a real friend to come to this show and it would take time… So they have to find someone randomly.
“Danielle lives in Central Jersey — she doesn’t live anywhere near her — and bring her along and she’ll be told what to do.”
