The strained relationship between Teresa Giudice and her brother, Joe Gorga and his wife, Melissa, is no secret to Real Housewives of New Jersey fans. Just witness the violent post-christening brawl in the Season 3 premiere and the dramatic letter Teresa sent to her brother two episodes ago. But the worst part is that for all the hostility caught on camera between brother and sister, there's even more drama off-screen. "Anything that you're seeing is not half of it," new cast member Melissa Gorga tells TVGuide.com.

"I think she was very upset when we got on the show because this was her thing and she didn't want us to be a part of it," Gorga says.
