The Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Joe Gorga isn’t usually one to talk about personal family business. Throughout Teresa Giudice’s legal and marriage problems, the house-flipper has mostly kept quiet.
However, now that Joe Giudice is out of the country, Joe Gorga and his wife, Melissa Gorga, are opening up about the estranged couple.
RHONJ Couple Split After 20 Years
As fans know, RHONJ stars Teresa and Joe Giudice went their separate ways in late 2019.
Joe lives in Italy now, waiting for his deportation appeal.
While in Italy, the former couple’s three daughters visited over the holidays. Teresa stayed in the United States. Her sister-in-law, Melissa, recently admitted that she never liked Joe Giudice.
Teresa’s brother seemed to admit the same thing in a recent episode of RHONJ. He said that a real man is open about his feelings, something Joe Giudice was never able to do with Teresa.
Joe Gorga Says There is ‘Zero Chance’ for Sister’s Marriage
During an argument with Teresa caught on audio, Joe Giudice said he never wanted to marry her in the first place. Their conversations recorded a year ago and airing currently on RHONJ have been tense, to say the least.
According to Joe Gorga, his brother-in-law has no one to blame but himself for the end of the marriage. He says,
“It’s over. He didn’t know how to act. If he acted right, maybe.”
Joe Gorga went on to say that if RHONJ’s Joe Giudice apologized to Teresa, she probably would have taken him back. However, instead of apologizing, Joe Giudice blamed his wife for everything, including never getting his citizenship.
Reality Blurb reports that Joe Gorga will be trying his hand at comedy with a few tour dates coming soon. One thing the contractor doesn’t find funny is the backlash from fans over allegedly faking home renovation photos.
RHONJ Star Under Fire for Faking Remodeling Photos
Earlier this week, RHONJ’s Joe Gorga was called out on social media for allegedly posting photos of houses he flipped that weren’t homes he actually worked on. Flipping houses entails buying a house and then upgrading it with repairs to re-sell at a higher price.
TV Shows Ace reports that Joe Gorga didn’t take kindly to the accusations. His defense was that he has been in the house flipping business for 25 years and doesn’t need to take photos.

Those who know me, know I am old school. I have good manners. I show others RESPECT. And I will ALWAYS help those who need me. It’s not because I am old fashioned, it’s because I was raised PROPERLY. • I started as a young kid from the hood with NOTHING! 25 years later, here I am – I have built an EMPIRE developing monster buildings. The size of my deals may have gotten bigger, but the size of my HEAD stayed the same – same young humble kid from the hood. Respect is one of those things money can’t buy. Never forget where you came from! #growwithgorga #respect#helpingothers
Later, however, he apologized and blamed it on a mistake by his social media manager.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Season 12 continues Wednesday on Bravo.
