Melissa Gorga appeared on the February 24 episode of “Watch What Happens Live,” where she reacted to the analogy Jackie Goldschneider used about Teresa Giudice‘s 20-year-old daughter, Gia Giudice, using drugs, before reacting to the highly-buzzed-about premiere of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” season 11.
“I have to be honest, it was the worst analogy possible. Let’s be real. You never want to hear… Even if Gia is 20-years-old, you do not want to hear her name tied up with drugs at all,” Melissa told host Andy Cohen.

“I would freak out to be honest with you. I would see red if someone said that about Antonia,” Gorga explained.
That said, Gorga went on to note that she understood where Goldschneider was coming from in wanting to make her point amid a tense situation with her cast mate, who had just spread a messy rumor about her husband, Evan Goldschneider, doing “stuff” at the gym.
“I understand Jackie was so stressed out and trying to make a point but it was like throwing gasoline on fire,” she noted.
Jackie Goldschneider’s Comment Was A Hot Button For Teresa Giudice
“It did not resonate, which we all know Teresa’s a little… She’s crazy if you bring up her children or if you bring up her parents,” Gorga continued. “We all know this. So the second I heard about this, I was like, ‘We’re in for a rude awakening. This is going to be quite a season.’”
Moving on to last night’s episode, Gorga commented on Gia’s decision to advise her mother, Giudice, to apologize to Goldschneider for spreading the rumor about her husband.

“I actually feel like Gia sometimes takes the place of the adult a lot of the time. And Teresa always goes to her for advice and it was actually great advice. It was great advice. She seemed unbothered by it,” Gorga recalled.
Later, during the “Watch What Happens Live: After Show,” Gorga was asked about viewers’ reactions to the premiere.
“It felt very old school to me. I know you’ve been around a long time to see how it used to be in seasons three and four on Twitter and like the fans and the craziness,” she explained.

Gorga then noted that when it came to fans on social media, she saw absolute craziness as they weighed in on the dramatic episode.
“I was getting that vibe last week again. They were going nuts. They were going crazy. It definitely had that feel like they are into it and they have big opinions this year,” she noted.
