Teresa Giudice reveals why she did NOT invite Melissa Gorga's mother and ... trends now
Teresa Giudice has revealed why she did not want her wedding to include her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga's family.
Last August Teresa, 50, tied the knot with businessman Luis 'Louie' Ruelas, 47, at the luxurious Park Chateau Estate & Gardens in East Brunswick, New Jersey.
The bride's brother Joe Gorga and his wife Melissa, who both co-star with Teresa on The Real Housewives Of New Jersey, infamously skipped the ceremony.
On this Tuesday's episode of the reality show, Teresa pulled back the curtain on some of the drama between her and her Gorga family.
She dished that she declined to even invite Melissa's mother and sisters because they had trashed her on social media a decade ago.

'What happened 10 years ago is I got busy, and I guess they got jealous,' said Teresa in a confessional, referring to the time when she first became a reality star.
'Melissa’s mother and sisters were writing stuff about me on social media, and I know my mother would never write about anybody on social media, so I always just kept my distance after that,' Teresa added.
Teresa joined The Real Housewives Of New Jersey for its first season in 2009, instantly becoming its star attraction, while Melissa entered the cast full-time in 2011.
According to a report in Page Six, Melissa's mother Donna Marco accused Teresa of being a habitual liar on Twitter in 2012, while Melissa's sister Kim Marco Pirrella said on social media that she was fond of Teresa 'before all the craziness n diva n lies.'
Although Teresa did not ask Melissa's family to her wedding, she claims she did invite Joe and Melissa and was mortified when they decided not to attend.
'And then despite them announcing on social media that they were not coming to my wedding, which I couldn't even believe that,' Teresa said on her podcast Namaste B$tches, which she co-hosts with nutritionist Melissa Pfeister.
'Like when my wedding planner asked me: "Should I change the seating arrangement?" And of course I told her: "No, because there's no way, like, that brother and my sister-in-law, my only family that I have...," my only family that I have did not show up at my wedding!' Teresa exclaimed.
The latest episode of The Real Housewives Of New Jersey included a luau party that took place before Teresa and Louie's wedding.

Louie struck up a conversation with Melissa Gorga's mother Donna Marco at the beano and got along so well with her that he apologized to her for the fact that she had not been invited to the then-upcoming nuptials.
After the chat, Louie made his way to Teresa and asked if she 'would be mad' at him if he invited Donna to the wedding.
Teresa gave him the go-ahead, but by the time he tried to find Donna to make the offer, she had already left the luau.
In a confessional, Teresa said she understood Louie's position because of her 'love' for him and her understanding that he was only trying to be a 'peacemaker.'
Meanwhile Danielle Cabral flipped out when she heard everyone talking about her at a party on Tuesday's episode of The Real Housewives Of New Jersey.
The situation started when Jackie Goldschneider said at Melissa Gorga's luau party that she thought there was more to the story about why Danielle didn't talk to her brother.
'I know what makes you like her,' Jackie, 46, said. 'I think she has a piece of her that's not that nice.'
'I hate hearing my name in conversations that I'm not involved in,' Danielle, 37, said, noting in a confessional that it brought her back to her childhood when she was bullied.

'The only difference is now, I know I could throw a right hook,' Danielle said.
'Apparently everyone's conversation has to do with my name in their mouth and I'm having a hard time with that,' Danielle said to her husband Nate, 39.
Melissa Gorga went over to check on Danielle who looked angry. Danielle said she didn't like hearing people talk about her behind her back. Melissa said they felt they were missing information about why she doesn't talk to her brother anymore.
'They feel like maybe you hide stuff,' Melissa said.
'Honestly I can't hear anything you say right now Melissa,' Danielle said. 'My insides are f***ing ready to go nuclear.'
'I'm pissed,' Danielle said in a confessional. 'Everything in me right now wants to run up on them and just unleash.'
Danielle told Melissa that 'when it comes to my brother that's my truth.'
