The feud between the Gorgas and the Giudices could make for an unlucky holiday.

The families of The Real Housewives of New Jersey have become estranged since filming began on May 13th season of the reality show Bravo. Joe and Melissa Gorga even skipped Teresa Giudice’s August 2022 wedding to Luis Ruelas amid the feud.

The Giudices and the Gorgas have recently moved into new homes and now it sounds like both families will be home for the holidays.

Melissa Gorga made a shady comment about her Christmas plans

In a December 2022 interview, Melissa Gorga confirmed that she is still not on speaking terms with her sister-in-law and that she fears things will only get worse once the new season of RHONJ begins airing in early 2023.

“Unfortunately, you’ll feel like you’re starting all over again,” Gorga said Us Weekly. “I always hope it helps, and I really do from all angles, but sometimes it doesn’t because when we reunite we want to end up on this couch and go crazy.”

Gorga also revealed that instead of attending Giudice’s annual Christmas Eve dinner, she will be hosting Christmas this year at her brand new mansion in Bergen County, New Jersey.

“It’s going to sprinkle cookies everywhere,” the Envy Boutique owner snapped. Gorga’s comment refers to her previous feud with Giudice over Christmas cookies at the supermarket.

According to BravoTV.comDuring a speech at BravoCon in 2019, Giudice claimed her sister-in-law used a story from a family dispute to gain attention so she would be hired for a role on RHONJ.

“She came over Christmas Eve, she’s pregnant, she’s bringing streusel cookies, you know, from ShopRite — in the plastic container!” Giudice said in 2019. “So I told her nicely, I was like, ‘Bring baking cookies next time.’ So she made it this damn big thing, put it on Facebook, and got Bravo’s attention. And the rest is history.”

Giudice is known for its lavish holiday hospitality. In 2021, she hosted Christmas Eve at the New Jersey mansion she shares with Ruelas. Giudice decked out her dining area with red tablecloths and festive striped runners, and the family feast included sumptuous appetizers and a dessert table. The sun shared photos of Giudice’s spread with charcuterie boards, Italian pastries and donuts.

An exception to their hosting tradition came in 2015, the year Giudice was released from prison just before the holidays. At the time, a source told Us Weekly that the Gorgas were throwing Christmas for the family that year. “They had a really nice family dinner,” the insider said. “The kids played and had the best time together. They all love each other.”

But friction between family members has persisted for years. In 2014, Giudice once snubbed her brother and sister-in-law and decided to spend Christmas with then-husband Joe Giudice’s sisters.

“Teresa will be hosting Christmas Eve as usual and spending Christmas Day with her other sisters-in-law (Joe Giudice’s sisters),” a source said said Reality Tea back then. “She has absolutely no plans to spend Christmas with her brother.”
