Sources close to Giudice told RadarOnline that the Bravo reality star is demanding that her brother compensate her for the losses she incurred due to his absence at her star-studded wedding to Ruelas.

The source said, “Joe and Melissa had both RSVPed ‘Yes.’ They had both selected what they were going to eat but then dropped out a few days before. Teresa had paid for them and now she wants her money back.”

They added, “Meals at Park Chateau Estates and Gardens are not cheap. It’s rude to say ‘yes,’ and then change your mind in the 11th hour. This stuff isn’t refundable. Teresa got stuck with the check and to make matters worse, Joe and Melissa didn’t even send her a gift.”

The couple learned that during filming for the Real Housewives of New Jersey, several “false rumors” had come up about their marriage. The source explained that Giudice had been part of the situation, and Ruelas’ behavior during the whole thing had particularly pissed off the Gorgas.

The source said, “Teresa betrayed them in a way that’s unforgivable. They’re not going to celebrate Teresa’s new marriage when all she does is try to tear apart theirs. It’s telling that Teresa didn’t have one relative at her wedding. But that’s the choice Teresa made.”
