On the last episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey
, Melissa Gorga was accused of cheating on her husband Joe Gorga. What's even worse, the person making the allegations was one of her oldest friends, Jan, who spilled the beans to Melissa's nemesis and sister-in-law, Teresa Giudice. Now Melissa's asserting that is nothing but a bunch of malicious rumors.Roundup: More Brandi Blunders, Teresa's Hurt Feelings and Vicki's Denials >>>
"I should have seen it coming, I write about marriage, so I'm accused of cheating," Melissa wrote on her Bravo blog
. "I'm innocent of every disgusting thing those scheming ladies cooked up about me. I know who I am, and what I've done. My family and friends know it too."
While Melissa knows that it wasn't necessarily Teresa who was spreading the rumors, she thinks that her sister-in-law should take some responsibility for how the other women were talking.
"I don't like to put everything on Teresa and I DON'T, but there is something to be said about the company you keep," Melissa wrote. "And when an accusation as disgusting as [that] was being discussed on national TV about your own sister-in-law, no matter how much you 'don't like her,' I think what most people would do is immediately get up and walk away, reach out to their family to give them a heads up since the last time this happened it caused such a divide."
Besides the rift in her family, Melissa also felt disappointed and betrayed by her friend, who was also a bridesmaid in her wedding.
"At this point, I don't know who to trust. I don't know what to believe," she wrote. "The friends you make as a lonely teenager are not necessarily who you want in your life later on. I thought I was being a good friend keeping ties long after we'd grown apart. Good intentions can get you stabbed in the back. It hurt to live through, and to watch it play out. I'm still a bit in shock." Don't miss new episodes of The Real Housewives of New Jersey by adding it to your watch-list when you download our free BuddyTV Guide app for your mobile device.
