Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga and Kathy Wakile of The Real Housewives of New Jersey appeared on The View yesterday. But the castmates did not do so as a group.
Due to what she referred to as "family issues," Giudice refused to conduct her interview alongside Gorgoa and Wakile, telling the co-hosts:
"We have family issues that we need to resolve and I didn't think that today was the appropriate time, you know, in front of an audience and it to be done in just a few minutes."
We gotta give props to the Bravo producers for staging this controversy and finding a way to extend the feud beyond their show. And negative props to The View for allowing itself to be used in such a manner.
Meanwhile, an insider tells The New York Daily News that Gorga "flipped out" when she learned Giudice would not be on stage with her, supposedly telling someone over her cell phone
"Our plan is ruined... we have to come up with another way to take her down.”From where does this rivalry stem? The show's scripts, of course. But specifically from Giudice saying Gorga was a "gold digger" and would leave her husband for a richer man. Teresa has since apologized for those remarks... on the cover of a supermarket tabloid.
Clarifies a spokesperson for Gorga (yes, Melissa Gorga has a spokesperson): "Any insinuation that Melissa went on The View to take Teresa down or made a phone call to that effect is absolutely not true. Teresa refused to appear with Melissa and Kathy so the women did two separate segments."
Allow us to speak for anyone with more than three brain cells and a life: WE DON'T CARE.
