Teresa Giudice (above) and her rival, richer and prettier sister-in-law, Melissa Gorga (below).
Believe it or not, Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice has worse enemies than recently fired castmate Danielle Staub. Like Melissa Gorga, the wife of Teresa’s brother, with whom she does not speak. Shouldn’t take a lot to imagine Teresa’s reaction when she found out that Melissa was joining the cast of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, in all likelihood, as a replacement for the departed Dina Manzo.
Hey Teresa: be careful what you wish for.
Now that despised Danielle Staub has been axed from “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” the show has recruited new cast member Melissa Gorga — hothead Teresa Giudice’s sister-in-law and bitter enemy.
There’s apparently no love lost between rivals Teresa and Melissa, who’s married to Teresa’s kid brother, Giuseppe Gorga.
While the profligate Teresa and hubby Joe are bankrupt and fending off creditors, Melissa and Giuseppe — a former landscaper who segued into real estate development — are living the good life in their $4 million mansion in tony Montville, NJ.
Bravo cameras have been filming Melissa, Giuseppe and their three young kids (two boys and a girl) for several weeks now, according to radaronline — which quotes an insider as saying, “Teresa and Melissa don’t get along . . . They don’t speak.”
How great is that?
Melissa, in fact, was said to be peeved that Teresa put the kibosh on allowing Antonia — Melissa’s daughter — to ride in a limo with her cousin Gia to Gia’s birthday party, which aired last season.
Can you say “dysfunctional family”?
As for Danielle’s firing, it would seem as though the news blindsided her, but of course, that’s not Staub’s spin on her pink slip.
“Actually, I’m not even thinking about season three right now, as I am considering many incredible options that have been presented to me,” Staub, 48, told PopEater.com. “Right now, I just want to let fans know that we have a fantastic finale coming up next week and explosive reunion shows on Aug. 30 and Sept. 6. Don’t worry next year, I’ll still be the one you either love to hate or hate to love.”
Bravo told the scandal-ridden reality star that she would not be returning for the show’s third season, reported Life & Style, adding that it “came as a complete shock” to the former model.

As for the rumors that Joe Giudice is cheating on Teresa…
In the latest issue of InTouch Weekly, Joe laughs off the rumors, stating that he and Teresa “still make love once, sometimes twice a day.” Why thank ya Joe for that TMI detail.
Back to this Tara individual, there’s still no proof that this person even exists or that Joe is cheating. We however received an email earlier this week, with someone telling us that the girl’s name is Tara F., and that she is blonde with blue eyes, 100% Sicilian and speaks fluent Italian.
The tipster also alleges that Tara F. “makes her own money working for a major fashion brand in Philly. Rumors are that Joe wants to separate from Teresa, sell the house and live with Tara in NJ or PA. She just bought a farmhouse on 8 acres in Bucks County.”
Teresa should have plenty of reasons to toss some tables next season, it seems. Danielle or no Danielle.
