‘Real Housewives of New Jersey’ preview: Melissa Gorga at the center of latest drama

When you think about it, Melissa Gorga should really be used to it at this point: Being surrounded with conflict. Even when she is not directly involved, which seems to be somewhat the case on “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” at present, nothing still escapes her.

This does bring us to where we are entering the next new episode of the show airing on Bravo Sunday night. The preview below offers a little bit of insight, and the attached synopsis does the same:

“Free at last! After being on home confinement for over a month, Teresa says goodbye to her ankle bracelet and the ladies plan a trip to celebrate. Siggy returns to her religious roots and hosts a family dinner, and Dolores makes progress on renovating her home. Meanwhile, Melissa confronts Jacqueline about involving Joe Gorga in her fight with Teresa.”

To get a little more insight into Melissa’s position at present, think about it this way: Teresa Giudice and Joe Gorga are permanently tied because of their family connection. As a result of that, when they have conflict (and they will), it bleeds over into Melissa. The same goes to a certain extent with Jacqueline Laurita. She may not have the same exact blood ties, but she’s a longtime on-again, off-again friend of Teresa and can be considered close to family due to her ties to the rest of the cast. When things go awry with her, Melissa hears about those equally.

The ultimate way in which you could think about Melissa’s story moving into the weekend is a cocktail of everything that could go wrong for her, all rolled into a disastrous ball.
