The Giudice-Gorga-Ruelas families clash on RHONJ

Tonight's episode of RHONJ saw the cast members gathered for Dolores and boyfriend Paulie's Irish party. The evening started out well with a few ladies trying to resolve their issues. However, drama soon followed and led to a lot of confrontations after a rumor finally made it all the way to Melissa.

The official synopsis of the episode, titled Flappers of Fury, reads:

"Everyone gathers at Paul and Dolores' house for their Irish Prohibition Party, but the night of drinking, gambling and fun quickly goes downhill when a festering secret is finally revealed to Melissa; the Gorgas make a divisive decision."

At the beginning of the RHONJ episode, Danielle sat down with Melissa to tell her about the rumor that had been swirling around about the latter. The rumor was that Melissa cheated on her husband Joe Gorga with another man. However, Melissa already knew about the rumor.

Melissa further explained that Teresa had previously called Joe Gorga over to her house and told him the rumor, but he didn't believe it. She also decided to confront Teresa about it, which led the ladies to clash. The two cast members got into an argument and while Melissa wanted an explanation, Teresa didn't want to give her any "energy."

The clash on RHONJ only got worse when their husbands got involved. Teresa explained it was her now-husband Louie who called Joe Gorga to the house to reveal that Margaret was the source of the rumor, and not her. Louie, for his part, also agreed with his wife and explained he was the one who called Joe.

Later into the night, Louie revealed that a Bo Dietl, private detective, knew information about a lot of the ladies in the cast. Melissa accused Louie of being extremely angry with her, which didn't sit well with Joe. The latter called out fellow househusband on his behavior.

This only led to Louie and Joe Gorga further clashing with each other by the end of the RHONJ episode.
