‘Real Housewives of New Jersey’ preview: Melissa Gorga, Teresa Giudice fight over hospital visit

Real Housewives of New JerseyOn Sunday night’s new “Real Housewives of New Jersey,” you will probably find us tweeting about how we are repeatedly slamming our head against the keyboard. What could cause this terribly-masochistic behavior? Think along the lines of having to listen to another argument between Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga. This show desperately needs to shake things up.

We don’t know how Bravo manages to get away with this sometimes but they do.  They somehow air the same exact drama year after year, and managing to get a wide audience to still tune in and watch. The only real difference this time around is that the source of the argument is something that Teresa holds very close to her: Whether or not Melissa actually went to visit her father while he was in the hospital. She believes that she has caught her sister-in-law in a lie, whereas Melissa is adamant that she’s telling the truth. Based on Melissa’s behavior in the clip below, we’re inclined to side with Teresa for now … with the reason being that Melissa has motivation to make herself look good in front of TV cameras.

Check out the full synopsis for the episode below:

“Teresa’s father gets admitted into the ICU just in time for her daughter, Gia’s, 12th birthday party. Kathy plays the tough guy with her family but can’t erase the damage done by what she said to Teresa. Caroline returns to her Franklin Lakes mansion to find it’s turned into a pig sty. Meanwhile, Jacqueline checks in with her new friend, Melissa, but can’t save her when a little white lie makes Teresa see red!”

The one last thing that we have to ask here is why in the world is this episode even airing on Father’s Day? Talk about rubbing salt in the collective wound of America.

What do you think about this video, and do you think that Melissa is telling the truth? If you want to read our full review of last week’s “Real Housewives of New Jersey” episode, be sure to head on over to the link here.
