Melissa Gorga's Response to Cheating Allegations Couldn't Be More Convincing

melissa gorgaReal Housewives of New Jersey star Melissa Gorga was on Watch What Happens Live last night, and I'll give you one guess as to what she and Andy Cohen wound up conversing about. If you just thought to yourself "the energy investment," you are wrong, and it makes complete sense as to why you missed this show. You are a productive member of society. If you said "Teresa Giudice," like, duh, you're totally right.

But fascinatingly enough, that wasn't the most interesting thing that was brought up during the show. The energy investment was. Just kidding!

When asked about the Giudices' current legal troubles, Melissa declined to go into detail, but did say that she had her sister-in-law's back throughout the ordeal. "Yes, I've reached out and spoke to Teresa since. She knows I have her back. The kids are the number 1 priority and that's what Joe and I are always here for no matter what," Gorga diplomatically said.

But when the conversation dovetailed into "cheating allegation" territory -- as in Melissa cheating on Joe territory -- things got interesting. And not from an "Ooh, Melissa just revealed this huge bombshell" standpoint, from a "Wow, Melissa really couldn't be handling this better" standpoint. When grilled about the allegations that her ex-friend, Jan, is making, saying she was unfaithful to her husband, Joe, Melissa said: "It's amazing what people will do for attention. I refuse to give it attention because it's that ridiculous. It's one of those things that no one's buying it and no one believes it anyway. It's her attempt to come on and get attention."

Well-played, Gorga. Well-played indeed. If Melissa would have gotten herself worked up into a tizzy and started talking about how she and Joe are so in love and that would never, in a million years, happen, etc., that's when things would start looking a little suspicious. Like, wow, this woman is really going above and beyond to defend herself. But the fact that she's just all, "It ain't true, yo. This lady's cray" makes her side of the story totally believable.

Did Melissa really cheat on her husband? Who knows? But one thing's for sure, this story will die out in no time with an attitude like that. And, I mean, come on, guys, a woman pulling things out of her ass to get some time on a low-brow reality TV show? Totally plausible.

Do you think Melissa cheated on Joe?

I don't think she COULD have, honestly, not with all the cameras that follow them around (unless this was WAY before that?).  If a famous person cheats, there's always some sort of picture/text/whatever...

No I do not believe it,it's just more BS.

Elaine Miller

No i believe Melissa loves her Joe and her "so call friend Jan" wants a spot on the show,to talk crap with Teresa or maybe fill in that soon tobe empty slot, lol not!!!! Jan go back ubder that rock you been lying under

Julie Jordan

would'nt you? she has plenty of time on her hands.

Marilyn Sites Geiser

I certainly don't believe that story. I think there are people who just want attention drawn to them like her friend Jen. I think Melissa is totally devoted to Joe.I think most watchers of this program feel the same way. You'd have to be a gossipmonger to think otherwise

Joanne Palumbo

Don't care. It's not my business whether she did cheat, or didn't. That's up to her husband Joe to decide.

Susan Parker

who really cares if she cheated. But if she did where is this guy she cheated on? Why hasn't he came forward.? You think he would be talking about it to make a quick buck don't you think.?Oh well, that's just like she was a stripper. if she was a stripper , where are the pictures? Where are they guys that seen her in her in the club stripping? where are all the pictures of her stripping? I think its all bull shit. My question is when Teresa gets jail time who's gonna  take care of her bratty kids? Sorry to hear that she might go to jail  but her snotty little girls are gonna get a rude awakening that's for sure!!!!
