Melissa Gorga's ex-BFF Jan Marie DeDolce exposes 'RHONJ' star for urging Bravo to replace Teresa Giudice
It seems the drama between the 'Real Housewives of New Jersey' stars Melissa Gorga and Teresa Giudice has just flared up. In a new revelation, Melissa's former BFF, Jan Marie DeDolce, who has also been featured in the series' earlier seasons, has come forth with some shocking claims about the reality star. This follows after Melissa claimed in her podcast that Jan had tried coming to the show to replace Melissa. But now, according to Jan's claims, it was Melissa who intended to replace Teresa with Jan.
Responding to a fan who reached out to her about Melissa's allegations, Jan replied that she "could have sold Melissa out" yet chose not to. She also revealed that she had been offered money by multiple outlets for information but chose to "protect Melissa." In the slew of messages, Jan shed light on Melissa's own plotting against sister-in-law and co-star Teresa. Jan wrote, "As some of you may or may not remember, I appeared on RHONJ as Melissa's friend. Unfortunately, the truth was totally hidden from everyone while Teresa was blamed." She continued, "After the season aired, I could have sold Melissa out, yet I chose not to. Many media outlets offered me money for information, still I remained silent and protected her.”
Jan elaborated that Melissa also made her write letters to Bravo to replace Teresa and continued, “If my goal really was to get on the show as a HW (housewife), as she (Melissa) claimed in her recent podcast, I could have exposed her and her dirty play to have me write letters to Bravo so that they would cast her behind Teresa’s back, which, of course, I didn’t do. I could have attended several events that aired that she invited me too but I declined because of the drama.” Noting that they were like sisters and that she stayed silent to protect Melissa, Jan also added, “We were truly like sisters. I was privy to many events and circumstances with which I could have revealed who she really is and let her true colors show, but I never did. I stayed silent."
Shedding light on her side after Melissa’s claims that she was plotting with Teresa to “get on the show,” Jan added, “Melissa claims I met with Teresa in an attempt to get on the show. That’s a LIE! Why is she still lying? After seeing the S13 trailer, it seems like in true Melissa fashion she’s going to lie and try to throw Teresa under the bus as she always has. This is just history repeating itself once again! I can’t say I’m surprised.”
