Things on The Real Housewives of New Jersey have gotten incredibly tense between Teresa Giudice and her brother, Joe Gorga.
She and her sister-in-law, Melissa Gorga, have been at each other’s throats on and off since the Gorgas joined the hit Bravo show.
It’s been messier than ever since Teresa and her then-husband, Joe Giudice, went to federal prison. Now, revelations about their stints in prison and what happened in relation to that are back at the surface.
Former Real Housewives of New Jersey personalities Kim DePaola and Jacqueline Laurita recently appeared on Behind the Velvet Rope and threw out some concerning accusations.
The women allege they both knew about Joe Gorga reportedly having his secretary call the IRS on his sister, Teresa and his brother-in-law, Joe.
What will this mean for the next season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey?
Kim DePaola and Jacqueline Laurita spill the tea on Joe Gorga and the IRS
As the conversation about who called the Feds on Teresa Giudice and her then-husband, Joe Guidce, is brought back to the table, new allegations about the IRS are being brought to light.
Kim DePaola revealed she told Jacqueline Laurita about Joe Gorga’s secretary being instructed to call the IRS on Teresa and Joe. She said that there was a man they both knew in the office who heard Joe give the order. Kim even said Teresa knew who the man was as well, though she wasn’t going to name drop him because she didn’t want to start problems.
Even when the iron was to the fire over who called the Feds and Jacqueline and Caroline Manzo were accused of being the ones who did it, Jacqueline didn’t spill the beans about Joe Gorga and his role in the IRS investigating his sister and her then-husband.
Will Teresa Giudice and Joe Gorga ever reconcile?
The siblings allegedly haven’t spoken since The Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion was filmed.
Joe and Melissa Gorga did not attend Teresa Giudice’s wedding, which was a huge line drawn in the sand. Things between Joe and Luis Ruelas got heated during the season finale, and Louie threatened to “bury” them in the trailer for the wedding special.
At this point, it seems like a reconciliation is not going to happen. Teresa and her daughters are over the drama, especially after Gia Giudice revealed Joe lied about why she called him before the wedding. He accused his niece of asking him to divorce his wife, and she denied that, saying she called him to beg him to attend the wedding so there would be no regrets.
With the reunion airing soon, it will be interesting to see which ladies return for another season, and where this tea fits into all of it.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey airs Tuesdays at 8/7c on Bravo.
Oh you were doing illegal stuff so you blame the one who turned you in. Wow, of course you are not guilty and don’t know why you were both put in prision, All you have a busy bodies saying this stuff. Do you have proof and I don’t mean your comparades telling you this and saying they heard someone say something. Get a FOIA report and then we will believe it. Seems like you didn’t learn your lesson and of course you have never taken responsibility in you life. No your fault, ever.
Well said … I’ve never seen a person who went to prison be such a b**ch and still continue to act like nothing is her fault. And of course she can say whatever she wants about anyone mostly lies but no one can mention she went to prison… ridiculous… and so are all her cheerleaders
Caroline just admitted that she was present when the call was made, but refuses to divulge who did it. If that’s the case there was more than 1 witness, or Kim and Jacqueline said the witness was a man to throw people off the scent and protect Caroline. In the end the truth is going to come out, especially in this case where many people can profit from spilling the beans. There is no dispute that what Teresa and her X did was wrong. They both paid dearly for it, as did their children and her parents. However, if Joe ordered the call to the FBI to report his own sister that would be a tremendous betrayal to his family.
