After learning Melissa had accused him of using her to make money with clickbait articles following Joe Gorga‘s rant against him on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Giudice spoke out against Melissa, accusing her of putting stress on the daughters he shares with Teresa Giudice and exposing her marriage “problems” with Gorga.
“I understand Melissa is upset, [but] after 10 years of her trashing me, I am standing up for my family!” Joe told The Hollywood Gossip on April 5. “She plays emotional manipulation… instead of stating facts about her life of [owing] money, stealing, [and being] financially strapped.”
While Melissa felt as if she was defending Teresa against Giudice during a recent episode of RHONJ by suggesting she should be careful amid their divorce, Giudice has had enough of Melissa’s cycle of insulting him and asking for forgiveness.
“They continue to demean my family and play the game of repeating, ‘I’m sorry,’ and work their way back into your good graces,” he shared, adding that he recently “upset [Melissa]” by “stating the truth.”
“Let’s skip passive-aggressive comments and long-drawn-out fight cycle and keep my name out of your mouths!” Guidice continued. “Long gone are the days when the Gorgas can bash Teresa and me.”
On his Instagram Stories, as he promoted his latest article against the Gorgas, Giudice said he was “exposing another lie of Melissa’s” and encouraged his fans and followers to “swipe up.”
According to Giudice, Melissa and Gorga shouldn’t be focused on him. They should be focused on their issues at home.
“They have their own emotional problems and fake news to spill,” he shared. “And spending time with the girls is more important right now so I’m removing Gorgas label of scapegoat.”
Giudice then accused Melissa of negatively impacting the mental health of his four children.
“The Gorgas will not stress my girls out no more. I can’t allow them to rehash or make up lies about me,” Giudice added. “I am sorry for the past and both Teresa and I have moved forward.”
