The 32-year-old Real Housewives of New Jersey star took to her blog Monday to comment on Sunday night's season 4 premiere, in which her husband Joe Gorga revealed that his sister (that'd be Giudice, 39) told him that Melissa was planning to "leave him for a richer man."
"I wish he never told me. Why would she ever say something like that," Gorga writote. "What is she trying to say, I only love him for the money? Oh, because he's not handsome, charming, or sexy? He's not an amazing husband and father? Money is all he has going for him? I don't think so. I have been married for almost eight years now, I have three beautiful children with this man (Antonia, Gino and Joey]) I've never heard her say anything like this until we joined this show. It's almost like she is planting a seed for everyone to believe. Or even for her brother to believe."
Back at the beginning of season 3, it seemed like Giudice and Gorga had decided to chose family over feuding, but it looks like that pact soared out the window once the Housewives started filming season 4. Though Gorga writes in her blog that she let the incident slide, it's obvious that it still weighs on her.
"I do think it's very clear to everyone what she is trying to do, so I'm not going to get into it that much," she wrote. "I think watching me and Joe it's quite obvious how we feel about each other."
Gorga continued: "When Joe confronted Teresa on what she said about me, she once again had no excuse and said, 'I heard rumors.' We hear rumors all the time, but don't go to Teresa or her husband and ask if they are true. It's ridiculous that Teresa is upset that Joe said something to me... If it's just rumors, why put that in your brother's head?"
Despite the anger that Gorga feels while watching this incident replayed on TV, she promises that the rift between her and Giudice won't grow any bigger during season 4.
"As the season goes on, you see how (Joe and I) did let it go and decided to move forward and keep trying to just enjoy being together and have his sister and her family in our life," Gorga insists. "Definitely baby steps, but we do make progress."
