Season 11 of 'Real Housewives of New Jersey' is barely five episodes in and the ladies are already bringing in the drama. The pilot episode of the latest season featured housewife Jackie Goldschneider throwing a birthday party to celebrate her husband, Evan Goldschneider's birthday. 

Jackie was hoping to have a fun party in the company of her friends and family, unfortunately, although the event became a memorable one, it didn't exactly go the way Jackie would have wanted. From Teresa Giudice spreading rumors about Evan's infidelity to new cast member Michelle Pais accusing Joe Gorga of owing her husband money, the party was filled with several juicy moments.

While Teresa and Jackie continue to feud over rumors and analogies, there seems to be another budding plotline involving Melissa Gorga, Joe and Michelle. Read on to know more about the explosive information that Michelle dropped at the party and find out who she is.

What did Michelle Pais reveal about Joe Gorga?

Before we get to who exactly Michelle Pais is, here's a look at what she revealed about Joe at Evan's birthday party. As soon as Michelle entered the party, she instantly made her way to Jennifer Aydin. The two ladies seem to hit it off almost instantly and were spotted talking to each other at length.

One of their topics of conversation turned out to be about Joe, the husband of Melissa. Melissa and Jennifer have had a very rocky relationship, and only recently made up. So, it was interesting to watch Michelle air out dirty laundry about the Gorgas to Jennifer. 

Michelle tells Jennifer that Joe owes her husband money. "So, my husband and Joe were working on this event and Joe didn’t pay my husband." Jennifer's interest was immediately piqued on hearing these words, so she proceeded to ask Michelle how much did he owe.

"Tens of thousands" reveals Michelle. Surprisingly, Jennifer seemed to believe Michelle. In her confessional, the housewife explains how she has heard rumors about Joe in the past, but the recent incident involving him and false claims of renovating a kitchen left her questioning his authenticity. 



In the preview clip for the upcoming episode, we see Jennifer relaying the information to Melissa about Joe owing money to Michelle's husband. The housewife seemed shocked and angry at hearing the rumors against her husband. While it remains to be seen how Melissa reacts to Jennifer being the messenger, we are certain that the housewife isn't very pleased with Michelle.
