Melissa and Joe Gorga made waves in the reality TV world when they chose not to attend fellow "Real Housewives of New Jersey" star Teresa Giudice and Luis Ruelas' wedding.
Guidice is Joe Gorga's sister. The Gorgas discussed the nuptials in a new episode of Melissa Gorga’s podcast, "On Display." She alluded to an altercation that took place while filming the season 13 finale of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey," which made it impossible for them to attend.
She didn't reveal what exactly happened while filming the finale, but both of them agreed it would have been difficult for them to attend after what took place.
