The Real Housewives of New Jersey Recap: Teresa Giudice vs. Melissa Gorga

by at .

Tensions flared up on Wednesday's episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, and one thing is for sure:

The feud between Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga is back and nastier than ever. 

Drama at the RHONJ Reunion

The latest episode kicked off with Gorga opening up about her search for a long lost sister. 

"So do you think your dad would want you to find your sister if you had one?" Andy Cohen asked.

"Yeah. I do," Melissa said with a tear. Her father died when she was just 17 years old, so it's clear this family secret is eating her up. 

"I will say this. It is true. The way you grow up - it does affect your adult life. Like, there are such things as daddy issues and, like, it's a real thing," Melissa said.

Teresa then butted in, complaining that her daughters would be lost if their father was deported back to Italy when he gets out of jail.

"Poor Audriana. She was six when he left. These are like important years," Teresa complained. 

But Andy wanted to leave the Teresa show on the backburner to circle back to Melissa's sister. 

"She has a sister right here," Teresa interjected.

"Wait. You take it as offense to you that I was looking for a sister?" a confused Melissa asked.

"I'm just saying you have a sister-in-law here that you should treat more like a sister and I feel like you don't," Teresa shot back.

Teresa then took aim at Melissa for not sitting on the same seat as her, but Melissa was confused because she did not make the seating chart. 

But Teresa then said that Melissa was not taking her side when the arguments with other cast members kick off. 

"What are you talking about?" Melissa said in bewilderment. 

"Hello. Jackie," Teresa laughed, prompting Jackie to step in. 

"I'm not against you," said Jackie as Melissa gathered her ammunition.

"All right. Tell me I'm not crazy, or this girl just started with me, out of nowhere. I'm talking about my father and my sister," Melissa said.

"No wonder I'm searching for another sister," Melissa said later. "I need some backup."

"You started with me for no reason," Melissa declared.

"I didn't start with you, Melissa. He asked me a question. I love you more than anything. You're my sister-in-law," Teresa said.

"Oh, I believe that. I feel that, in my heart," Melissa said, but it was clearly sarcastic. 

Joe Gorga Poses

When Joe Gorga appeared on the stage, he was asked by a viewer whether he blamed Teresa or Joe Giudice for hurting his relationship with his father. 

"No. I think that was all Joe. He was hanging around a lot more, you know, and he did spend a lot more time with my father. He had a lot more time," Joe Gorga said.

"I don't want to say this in any negative way, but look at him, and look at me. I was out working. Busting my a** trying to build my life, and he was out playing. Enjoying himself. You understand what I'm trying to say? Or you don't get it?" Joe said.

Andy added that it was obvious Joe was trying to prove that he kept on the right side of the law.

The conversation turned to what Teresa would do if Joe was deported and whether she would move with him. 

"I hope that's not a decision I have to make but to, like, pick up my children and just move to another country. I don't think that would be good for my children," Teresa said.

"So I mean, no, I probably wouldn't," she added.

"Wow. This man is the one and only love of your life, but what you're saying is that you will go your separate ways if this ruling doesn't go your way?" Andy asked as the reunion episode closed. 

Yes, the final part is going to be soooo awkward. 

RHONJ continues Wednesdays at 9/8c.
