“Once Teresa got this show and became even more visual, I think Joe and Melissa were fit to be tied in jealousy and revenge. Those two think they should be famous and adored, and there was Teresa starring on a reality show. Joe even said ‘Teresa needs to fall.’ Fall? He pushed her!” – FanViewerNJ, August 8, 2012, Teresa’s Bravo Blog
According to Teresa Giudice in her Bravo blog about the pool party confrontation instigated by her brother in episode 4 of season 4, where he lost control of his temper and verbally abused her in front of all the children:
“I didn’t love the talk my brother and I had. I really, really didn’t want to get into it at a pool party my kids were at, because I knew how it would go. And it went that way… and worse. You didn’t even see the entire argument. Joey’s explosion at me was insane, scary, and yes, really, really hurtful to me.”
Joe Gorga called his sister a “f–king bitch” and told her to “shut the f–k up” during the episode (as well as telling her “you need to fall in order to see what you have done wrong“). In the next episode, the Gorgas scripted the “I sent my sister a text” scene (many of their scenes are staged and rehearsed) to cover up his failure to promptly apologize. It appears he lied about sending the text the next day.
“You know the other night, Meliss, I sent my sister a text the next day” (Joe Gorga tells Melissa in the car on the way to field day at Jacqueline’s).
Joe had Melissa read his text message on camera and then Melissa pretended to support his fake desire to reconcile with his family. Who text messages their sister an apology after calling her an f–king bitch and antagonizing her at a party in front of her kids? That’s not an authentic apology.
Jacqueline and Caroline accused Teresa of lying about not receiving the text from her brother. Of course, when Jacqueline asked Teresa if her brother had contacted her, Teresa had not yet received his text message. Leave it to these two troublemakers and busybodies to jump to the conclusion that Teresa flat-out lied to manipulate them into thinking negatively about Joe Gorga.
In her blog, Teresa explains:
“I wasn’t lying about getting the text from my brother because when Jacqueline called me, I hadn’t gotten it yet! I was going to tell her at field day, but I didn’t get a chance because of everything going on with Gia.”
“Joe Gorga told Melissa that he sent it to Teresa the day after the pool party, which was apparently the day before the field day events. When Teresa talks to Jacqueline, she asks about the pool party from the night before, then she asks if Teresa is coming the next day to the field day activities. Which could also explain why Teresa said Joe had not reached out to her, if the text came later in the day it would make sense from all sides.” [inatizzy , May 21, 2012, Television Without Pity]
