Episode 9 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey has yet to air, but it’s already causing a stir on social media.

Last season, viewers witnessed Teresa Giudice and Luis Ruelas’ wedding, and in the new episode titled Behind Frenemy Lines, there will be another one.

However, the focus won’t be on any of the cast members — it’s Melissa Gorga’s cousin who’s tying the knot.

The celebration was filmed for the show because Gorgas played a significant role in the event.

Joe officiated the wedding, Melissa was in the bridal party, and we even spotted Margaret Josephs and her husband, Joe Benigno, in the audience.

Nonetheless, viewers are upset that Melissa’s family will be featured in the new episode, and they’re lashing out on Instagram.

Joe Gorga officiates a family wedding in the RHONJ preview

A clip for the new episode was posted on Instagram featuring the wedding of Melissa’s cousin Nicholas Marco.

The clip shows Melissa and her older sister, Lysa Simpson, walking down the aisle as bridesmaids.

However, Joe Gorga steals the show as he proudly stands at the altar as the event’s officiant.

Joe, no doubt, had the wedding guests laughing and crying with his emotional yet funny speech before he started the proceedings.

“It was just a beautiful moment,” says Joe as the camera cuts to his confessional. “It reminds me of my sister, and I say, ‘Wow, she won’t be at my kids’ weddings, my nieces will be getting married and I’m not gonna be there.'”

However, viewers were not amused to find out that the wedding would air on the show since the grooms are not cast members and have not been heavily featured in past episodes.

RHONJ fans slam upcoming scene with Melissa Gorga’s family

After the clip was posted on Instagram furious viewers took to the comments to slam RHONJ producers for including Nicholas’ wedding on the show.

“Why is this a scene for the show? The audience doesn’t know these ppl, why does Bravo think we would care about this wedding,” wrote an RHONJ viewer.

“Why are cameras at Melissa’s cousin’s wedding?” questioned someone else.

A commenter reasoned, “Teresa’s brother’s wife’s cousins wedding is an unnecessary use of airtime.”

Someone exclaimed, “Bravo fans waiting a year for this season to start just to watch Teresas brothers wife’s cousins brothers dogs uncles friends mother in laws cats owners wedding.”

One viewer said, “Producers should get fired for this.”

I’d rather watch this wedding than Teresa’s monstrosity any day!

Is this show The Real Housewives of New Jersey or The Real Househusbands? I’m getting very sick of Melissa and Joe! Has anyone noticed how Teresa went from being a lovable character to a villain ever since they came on the show? I believe Melissa had an agenda from the start!

I really like the Gorgas’ family…they don’t go out of their way to cause trouble..this show has become nothing more than a rich look at living ghetto….however the Gorga’s stay out of it…

Seriously?! Donna and her sisters have been trying to get on the show for years other than just extras. They go after Teresa and Gia constantly online and have for years. They’re irrelevant to the show. Talk about living ghetto, Joey owes so many suppliers and contractors for the homes he build including his own , how convenient that we never see anything on the show but them trying to act like the perfect couple and never show their hardships!! They need to go!

Sounds like people are more mad that it’s a gay wedding. Joe is the officiant. It’s a big thing art of their life. And her cousin has been in many episodes this season and last! Real fans know this.
