The Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Teresa Giudice, 40, and Melissa Gorga, 33, sunk to new lows at a birthday party for Teresa’s 12-year-old daughter, Gia. “Melissa got [verbally] attacked by Teresa and her friends,” an eyewitness tells In Touch about the January 11, 2013 bash. “Teresa’s pal Kim D. was drunk and was the instigator, stirring the pot — as always — over petty stuff.” (Melissa was one of only two guests who showed up not wearing the party’s theme color of white). - In Touch, January 17, 2013, Exclusive: The Family Feud Continues: Melissa Gorga and Teresa Giudice Still at War
On January 13, 2013, Us Weekly, which has been heavily promoting Melissa Gorga, published a story about Gia’s birthday party, with photos suggesting that Teresa and Melissa had a heated discussion during the party. According to Us Weekly:
“Melissa and Teresa were seen chatting with Kim DePaola and Jennifer Dalton with a few finger-pointing gestures. Melissa attended the party with her children Antonia, Gino and Joey, but husband Joe has been recovering from the flu.”
Reality Tea has a story on the party with photos (see next two photos) of Kim D talking to Melissa, which makes you wonder just what she is telling her. Could they be discussing the phone call Teresa took at the holiday Posche Fashion Show on December 3, 2012, the one where Kim D and Penny approached Teresa with information about Melissa’s infidelity, and Teresa agreed to the call with someone who confirmed that Melissa cheated on Joe after they were married.
Perhaps this was Melissa’s first time seeing Teresa since the season 4 reunion special taped on September 7, 2012 (prior to that, Joe and Melissa hadn’t spoken to Teresa for a year — except for Melissa’s brief appearance last January at Gia’s Space Odyssey birthday party). Melissa should have kept her mouth shut and waited until another time, not a child’s birthday party, to air her grievances.
The birthday party had a white theme but notice in the photos below that BOTH Melissa and Jennifer Dalton (who appeared on season 2 episode 5 of Bravo’s “Pregnant in Heels” and now is a “friend of Housewife” Teresa for RHONJ season 5) did not wear white.
