Fans are reacting after a “Real Housewives” star posted a caption on Instagram in which she called her co-stars her “evil stepsisters”.
The comment was made by Melissa Gorga, who shared a photo of herself during the Real Housewives of New Jersey cast trip to Ireland.
“Cinderella in her castle — with a bunch of her wicked stepsisters,” Gorga captioned the pic. She added a cry before laughter emoji and the hashtag “itsajokekaren.” Several people appreciated the joke and found Gorga’s Shadow funny. However, some RHONJ fans didn’t take Gorga’s joke too well and let them know how they felt in the comments section of the post.
Here’s what you need to know:
While it’s no secret that Gorga doesn’t get along with her sister-in-law, Teresa Giudice, she’s also had some differences with other co-stars, including Jennifer Aydin. Details about what might have happened during the cast’s trip to Ireland were sparse at best, but Gorga doesn’t seem shy about stirring the pot — or at least getting people talking about the upcoming season.
Gorga’s caption was clearly intended to stir up controversy, and it worked. It didn’t take long for fans to fill the comments section of the post, some found Gorga’s comment hilarious and others weren’t too happy with her.
“Know your audience and your environment,” one person wrote.
“And then you wonder why Teresa doesn’t like you,” added another.
“Melissa keep humble and work on your story,” said a third Instagram user.
“Oh god, are you still clinging to the feud with Teresa over relevance to Rhonj?” Another person chimed in, adding the eye roll emoji.
“I think you got it wrong – you’re the evil stepsister, not Cinderella. Professional victim much?” read a fifth comment.
“More like an evil sister-in-law. you look fabulous honey,” wrote another fan.
Additional comments poured in, many loving Gorga’s shadow and others not having a bit of that caption.
If you’ve been watching RHONJ since its inception, you’re probably very familiar with the dynamics of Gorga and Giudice’s relationship. Sometimes everything was good and sometimes it was terrible. Bravo cameras have been capturing the ebb and flow between the two for years.
With season 13 filming in full swing, fans are expecting more of this Giudice-Gorga roller coaster ride to continue.
In early July 2022, Gorga chatted with OK! Magazine on the status of her relationship with Giudice.
“We are a work in progress. i feel like forever Until the day I die. It is real. I love being able to tell the world that it’s okay if you have someone in your family that you’re not perfect with,” Gorga told the outlet.
“We are still a family. We still wish each other the best, but we just don’t want to go to lunch. It’s never perfect. It could be one day, but it’s not now,” she added.
