"Real Housewives of New Jersey" star Melissa Gorga, 43, alleged that her co-star and sister-in-law Teresa Giudice, 50, had her forehead lengthened, per Page Six.

Melissa made the revelation in a new "after-show" episode of the Bravo reality TV show, saying, "Everybody gets a little tune-up after the first time they see themselves on TV."

"Teresa did her forehead. She went back a little further with her hairline. Everybody does something," she added, which prompted Rachel Fuda, one of her co-stars, to say, "I need to move a little forward. I got a little bit big of a forehead."

According to Page Six, Teresa underwent rhinoplasty surgery in 2021. She also had her breasts reworked in 2020, ten years after she first had the surgery.

Melissa recently slammed Teresa's husband, Luis Ruelas, as manipulative, insisting that she sees him for "what he is."

"I see Louie for what he is and he's charming, but he's also very manipulating," she said about his interference in Giudice reconciling with Margaret Josephs.

"So, it's so obvious that Louis told her, 'Be good to Margaret, don't f**k with Margaret.' Because we're going to need Margaret to stop telling all of the truth about us. That's what we're gonna need," she added per Daily Mail.

Her co-star on the confessional, Fuda, seemingly agreed with Melissa on the issue as she divulged that Teresa specifically said, "It's better to have Margaret as a friend than an enemy."

Melissa was referring to a skate party event she hosted in which her sister-in-law ran to meet Margaret even though Teresa doesn't see eye to eye with her.

"She hates f**king Margaret. I don't care what you say, what Teresa says, what Luis' buddha says," Melissa shared.

"She can't stand f***ing Margaret, she can't stand me, and she can't stand him, and that's a fact, and that's why I'm not rolling with the whole fake f***ing parade that's been happening," she added.

Teresa claimed that Melissa had encouraged Margaret Josephs to spread rumors about her husband, which led to the two engaging in a heated argument and shouting bouts.

Melissa wasn't having it and reportedly yelled at her, saying, "Stop putting it on me! Stop putting it on me! I didn't f**king do it. I'm sick of you putting s**t on me!"

Teresa stressed that "family is everything" to her before insisting that Melissa was the one who "started" the screaming match.

The cause of their rift started last year when Teresa knowingly left Melissa out of her family table at her engagement party in 2021, per Page Six. In addition to Melissa's exclusion, Teresa at the time also publicly shared that Melissa would not be her bridesmaid at her wedding to Ruelas.

"I think it's all playing out honestly on the show. It's been rough. I don't think there's any denying that... what you're watching is our real feelings," Melissa shared. "I feel like there's a lot of chatter going on outside of the show on social. That makes no sense. It doesn't really coincide with anything that's really going on."
