With an upcoming wedding to the love of her life, Teresa should be smooth sailing. But in typical Bravolebrity style, the reality star has her plate full of drama.
Teresa’s best friend and bridesmaid, Dina Manzo, pulled out of the wedding at the last minute. Although reports initially said Dina’s husband got into a fight with Teresa’s fiance, other sources said something different.
The sources revealed that Dina did not want to be on camera. This week, Monsters and Critics confirmed that Teresa would have a wedding special on Bravo. A source told revealed that Teresa was “OK with it” and added, “Teresa respects Dina’s wishes and looks forward to celebrating with her in the future. They remain as close as ever.”
Page Six also revealed that Teresa’s brother, Joe Gorga, and his wife, Melissa Gorga, would not be in attendance for the nuptials. A source explained, “There was a very tense ‘Housewives’ finale filmed earlier this week.”
Melissa was previously snubbed from the wedding party, but until today, she was expected to attend the big day.
