BUZZ: Melissa Gorga Responds to Reports of Departure from 'Real Housewives of New Jersey' After Season 13 Reunion

Melissa Gorga shut down rumors that she will not be returning to “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” next season amid her feud with Teresa Giudice. On her “On Display” podcast Thursday, Gorga clarified that she has “no intentions on leaving” the reality series, which she joined in 2011.

“I never run away when the going gets tough; that’s not my personality,” she added, referring to drama with her sister-in-law, Giudice, reaching an all-time low over the past year. Gorga also teased that the recently filmed “RHONJ” Season 13 reunion was “rough.”

Gorga and her husband, Joe Gorga, came face-to-face with Giudice, 50, and her husband, Luis Ruelas, at the taping for the first time since the Gorgas skipped out on Giudice’s wedding in August 2022. Host Andy Cohen recently insinuated that the reunion only made the relationship between the two couples worse. He admitted that at one point, he got so “annoyed” with the sisters-in-law’s back-and-forth that he almost walked off the stage.

Prior to the reunion taping, Giudice also stressed that she would “never” leave the show, on which she is the only remaining original cast member. She told People in December 2022, “I would never step away. I started the show. I’m never going to give that to anyone, because I’m the one that started the show.”

Bravo has not announced any casting decisions for the upcoming 14th season of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey.” The show airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo.
