When Joe joined the RHONJ cast and host, Andy Cohen, at the reunion on May 3, Teresa accused him of being "a little too much involved" in the ladies' drama during an argument about Jennifer Aydin calling Joe a "bitch boy" earlier this season. Teresa Giudice slammed her brother, Joe Gorga, for getting "too involved" in lady drama on part one of the "Real Housewives of New Jersey" Season 12 reunion. "He's a little too much involved, that's all I'm saying," Giudice, 49, said, adding that she would ask her fiancé, Luis "Louie" Ruelas, to "cool it" if he took a similar approach to confronting conflict on camera. Teresa replied, "Bitch boy, I'm sorry Joe, but you're kind of like a Housewife. Sorry, you are." "I'm a bitch now," he responded. "Stop it! You don't realize what you do." Earlier in the reunion, Teresa, Joe, and Melissa argued about Melissa not being in Teresa's wedding to Louie, even though Joe was asked to be.
