Melissa Gorga and Teresa Giudice Feud The View

The women of ‘The Real Housewives of New Jersey’ were forced to tape separate segments for Friday’s episode of ‘The View’ in order to stop an expected feud! Find out all the details of the heated interview!

Teresa Giudice and her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga, as well as her cousin Kathy Wakile, have been in a long-running feud that has lasted two seasons on RHONJ — and it’s not ending anytime soon!

The Housewives taped an interview on Wednesday June 6 for an episode of The View set to air on Friday June 8. But in hopes of supporting their guests, producers agreed to let Teresa and Melissa tape separate segments! “The show agreed to have them film separately and put Teresa on first which really upset Melissa, because she thought it was unfair. She wanted to go head to head with Teresa,” a source tells Radar Online. 

Melissa was really looking forward to confronting Teresa once and for all — in front of America! But Teresa was not having that! “The producers on The View asked Teresa if she would try to resolve her issues with Melissa, together, on the show in front of the cameras, but Teresa said she didn’t feel she should do so in front of an audience.”

To Teresa’s luck, co-host Whoopi Goldberg “was shocked by what Teresa told her about Melissa’s behavior towards her in particular and in turn didn’t want to return to  the stage to listen to Melissa bad mouth Teresa.”

And Whoopi wasn’t alone in these feelings! “Elizabeth [Hasselbeck] sympathized with Teresa too about what she has endured, off camera during the break,” the source continues.

The full interview will air on Friday’s episode of The View! Will YOU be watching, HollywoodLifers?
