In a clip previewing the next episode of the 12th season of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” set to air on February 8, Gia Giudice is seen getting into quite a heated argument with her uncle and godfather, Joe Gorga. Gia confronts Gorga, telling him that her father did not deserve the comments that Gorga made in years past. “If you’re going to come at me disrespectfully … then I won’t talk to you,” Gia tells Gorga after he appears to grow angry, per Page Six. Gorga assures Gia that he can talk to her, given the fact that he is her uncle and godfather. “That doesn’t mean anything, Zio [Uncle] Joe,” Gia responds, per Page Six. “I’m an adult now, too, so you can talk to me like one … Because I’m done with you being disrespectful.” Gorga then fires back, saying, “I would never allow my daughter to talk to my aunt or my uncle [like that]. I mean, where were you raised?” Then, he storms off and the audience is left wondering just how the pair’s drama will proceed throughout the rest of the season.
During an interview with Page Six, Gorga’s wife and “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” cast member Melissa Gorga claims that her husband and Gia have since moved on from their brief feud. “I just think that everyone’s just so over it now,” Melissa told Page Six. “Everyone doesn’t want to discuss all the hardships that went on the last five years with everything in our family, with my in-laws and passing away.”
