Is it just a matter of sour grapes?
Melissa Gorga responded to former co-star Kathy Wakile’s son calling his family “farm animals” saying he was just “sour” the Wakiles are no longer on “The Real Housewives of New Jersey”.
“Look, I know they’re a little bit bitter that they’re not on the show anymore, and it’s unfortunate, to be honest,” she said during a recent appearance on “Watch What Happens. live with Andy Cohen “. “I wish them all the best; I love the Wakile children.
In February, Kathy’s 24-year-old son Joseph Wakile took to Page Six’s Instagram to denounce Melissa and her husband Joe Gorga when a fan asked why they hadn’t attended Victoria Wakile’s wedding.
“Lmao, we took these farm animals out of our lives years ago, which is why they weren’t there,” he replied in comments on his sister’s wedding.
Last Wednesday Melissa, 40, told Cohen, 52, that she was “very happy” for Kathy’s daughter Victoria, although she was not invited to the wedding, adding that she looked like to a “beautiful bride”.
The “RHONJ” star also added that Joseph’s comments were “very shocking” as she “always had a great relationship with him too”.
Kathy is Joe Gorga’s first cousin and Joe’s sister, Teresa Giudice. Kathy appeared in seasons 3 through 7 of the Bravo show.
Melissa also made it clear that she thinks Joseph may be intending to make the ‘farm animal‘ comment about Teresa, 48, and her ex-husband, Joe Giudice.
Joseph did not immediately respond to our request for comment.
