‘RHONJ’ Trailer: Teresa Giudice & Joe Gorga Engage In Epic Feud As Cheating Rumors Surface

The new trailer for season 11 of ‘The Real Housewives of New Jersey’ features an intense yelling match between Teresa Giudice and Joe Gorga, plus more drama for the ladies! Check it out here!

Things are about to get explosive! The Real Housewives of New Jersey trailer for season 11 debuted and there’s plenty for longtime fans of the Bravo series to look forward to. This season promises to be unlike any other, with accusations of infidelity, family drama, and plenty of yelling matches — notably between Teresa Giudice and her brother, Joe Gorga.

The trailer opens with an ominous exchange between Margaret Josephs and Melissa Gorga. “Everyone’s marriage can look absolutely perfect on the outside,” Margaret says, before Melissa’s voice can be heard saying, “But guess what? Things aren’t always what they seem.” At that point, Dolores Catania interjects, “Anyone can be a cheater.”

Cheating becomes a major theme of the season, and it looks like it’s the main conflict between Joe and Melissa. “Last night, the owner of the restaurant asked Melissa for her number,” Teresa says of her sister-in-law. “They’ve been texting all day,” her voiceover can be heard, as footage of Melissa looking at her phone and smiling from ear to ear is shown. But that’s not even the most intense part of the trailer!

Following a tense conversation between Joe and Melissa, the season’s biggest yelling match comes at the end of the trailer — and it looks like it’s between Joe and Teresa! As its revealed that Joe Giudice, Teresa’s now ex-husband, has seemingly been talking about Joe Gorga behind his back, things reach a complete boiling point during a family dinner.

Teresa Giudice is totally shocked by what her brother says on ‘The Real Housewives of New Jersey’ season 11 [Bravo].

“You’re going to defend him?” Teresa’s brother shouts at her. “F**k that piece of s**t. He put my mother in a f**king grave. Do you understand that?” It’s an incredibly tense moment between the two that leaves Teresa practically speechless. There’s so much more in store for the ladies of RHONJ, and fans don’t have to wait long to see everything play out in the upcoming season!

Mark your calendars, The Real Housewives of New Jersey returns to Bravo for its 11th season on February 17 at 9 pm ET.

Teresa Giudice’s Brother Joe Gorga ‘Relieved’ She ‘Met A Nice Guy’: She’s So ‘Happy’ With New BF

After Teresa Giudice’s new boyfriend joined the family Christmas Eve party, a source revealed Joe Gorga’s reaction to this romance and why the ‘RHONJ’ star is ‘relieved’ that his sister is dating again.

Teresa Giudice, 48, is not the only one happy about her relationship with New Jersey businessman Luis “Louie” Ruelas, 46. “Her brother [Joe Gorga] is relieved that Teresa has met a nice guy. He worried about his sister being alone with the girls,” a source close to the family EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife, referring to Teresa’s four daughters whom she shares with her ex-husband Joe Giudice: Gia Giudice, 19, Gabriella, 16, Milania, 14, and Audriana, 11. Joe has been in Italy since Oct. 2019, meaning he could not celebrate Christmas Eve with his family; however, Teresa wasn’t lonely on the holiday.
Luis came to Teresa’s New Jersey mansion to celebrate Christmas Eve with The Real Housewives of New Jersey star on Dec. 24, along with Teresa’s brother, his wife and Teresa’s co-star Melissa Gorga, their children AntoniaGio and Joey and Teresa’s daughters, of course. “Christmas Eve was fun for all of them and went really well,” our source added.

However, the holiday party did not serve as “the first time that Teresa introduced Louie to her daughters,” our source told us. “The family has met him on several occasions before and they all like him and are in favor of the relationship so long as it makes Teresa happy. You can tell just how happy he makes her.”

As for when Teresa’s daughters will reunite with their dad, “there aren’t any concrete plans,” our source revealed, adding that “they’re wanting to once it’s safe.” Joe reunited with two of his daughters — Gia and Milania — in Italy in November, but hasn’t had a reunion with all four of his daughters since the last Christmas season in Dec. 2019, due to traveling restrictions amid the pandemic. Teresa’s ex has been living in Italy since Oct. 2019, after requesting to leave custody of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and instead fight his deportation order from his home country.
Nearly a year after Joe’s big move, he and Teresa finalized their divorce in Sept. 2020. Not long after, Teresa revealed her “new boyfriend” in an Facebook post at the beginning of November, and they have been happily together ever since. Teresa even went Instagram official with Luis a few days before the Christmas Eve party, writing, “BEST thing that came out of 2020.”

‘RHONJ’ Alum Jacqueline Laurita Shades Melissa Gorga: I Don’t Get Her ‘Purpose On The Show’

‘RHONJ’ alum Jacqueline Laurita sat down for a tell-all interview with fan account Bravo After Thoughts, and gave her honest opinion on Melissa Gorga and the other stars on the Bravo show.

Jacqueline Laurita, 50, didn’t hold back while giving her honest thoughts on the current cast of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, which she left after Season 7. This led Jacqueline to shade Melissa Gorga, 41, despite giving compliments to the other cast members during her Q&A interview with the Bravo After Thoughts fan account.

“I don’t really know Melissa’s purpose on the show,” Jacqueline admitted during the interview, which was uploaded on Nov. 23. Shen then tried to soften her diss by adding that Melissa “looks good.” Meanwhile, Jacqueline said Jackie Goldschneider is “very smart and intelligent,” Jennifer Aydin is “funny and over the top,” Margaret Josephs is “funny” and “holds her own,” while Teresa Giudice is “Teresa — Teresa’s always good TV.” Jacqueline did admit that she thinks Teresa is “a little subdued now,” though. She also added that she “like[s]” Dolores Catania.

Jacqueline did have criticism for the entire cast, though. “I think everybody is pretty much aware of the cameras now and they kind of know what the deal is with the show, and what kind of drama to bring,” Jacqueline confessed. “I feel like some people aren’t always themselves and I feel like a lot of people play to the camera.”

Jacqueline has never been one to keep her opinions a secret. She infamously slammed Teresa — who is also the sister-in-law of Melissa — for “choosing the show over her marriage” with Joe Giudice, whom she split from in 2019. “Teresa never really takes accountability for things she does in her life. It’s very hard for her to do that. It always has been. She’s a narcissist, sociopath,” Jacqueline said on her podcast The LookOver Ladies in Nov. 2019, shortly after Joe had moved to Italy after serving his prison sentence for fraud charges.

Melissa hasn’t hid her thoughts on Jacqueline, either. Before Jacqueline left the show in 2017, Melissa wrote in a 2016 think piece for Bravo, “Jacqueline  is someone who needs a ridiculous amount of control. And when she doesn’t have it, she either gets crazy or runs away and then goes off the grid to plan and scheme. Just look back at every conflict she’s ever had on the show.”
