AceShowbiz - Melissa Gorga and Joe Gorga have broken their silence about not attending his sister Teresa Giudice's wedding to Luis Ruelas on August 6. While the Gorgas revealed that they were invited to the wedding, they shared that there is a "laundry list" of reasons why they decided to skip the ceremony which prompted questions from people.

Melissa and Joe answered the burning questions in the Thursday, August 11 episode of her "On Display" podcast. "Obviously, we did not attend your sister's wedding. We have a laundry list right of reasons in our heads [of] why and I will let all my listeners know this - obviously, there was something that went down at the finale of filming 'The Real Housewives of New Jersey'," she began the episode. "Those exact details, I obviously cannot say today. Anything that we have filmed is something that I am not able to talk about."

Melissa also said that that the "full, entire story" is not out there, adding that "stories that are out there [are] obviously not coming from my camp." The singer also didn't deny that there's a "crazy" drama as she continued saying, "Yes, there was a little aggression from certain people that could have been a little scary."

"There definitely were moments. There was plenty of reasons for Joe and I to say it would be very strange - including everyone in that room, by the way - to look at Joe and I to say like, 'Yes, it would be very strange for you guys to just be sitting in the pews tomorrow, like, wishing them well on their wedding day.' It would be strange," she further shared.

Joe also addressed rumors that their relationship was ruined because of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey", revealing that it "bothers" him when people blame the Bravo show for their family feud. "People are saying, 'Oh, because you guys are on this reality show, you know, get off the show. It affects you and your family.' I disagree with that," he said.

He explained, "I know we're on a reality show, but if you're pure and you're honest and you go in with open arms, why do you have to fight? Why are we fighting? Why is this going on? Is there a jealousy thing going on? Not with us. We're not jealous."

In the episode, Melissa once again denied Teresa's previous claims that she went on the show behind her back. Defending his wife, Joe added, "What's sad is that it's still going on and if we took that opportunity, it should be OK. That's what I'm still baffled over. … You're so angry and you hold this anger for 13 years. It's insane."

"[Skipping the wedding] was one of the hardest days of my life. It was bad. But listen, let's go back to the reunion. She did this. You know, this was all on her," the real estate developer divulged. "This is what she really wanted. She didn't want you in the wedding. She didn't want any of my children in the wedding. She barely wanted me. I was asked after all this information went out to be in a wedding. And that's what saddens me."

He added, "When I left that reunion, I looked at you in a car and I was like, 'Wow, she hates us.' I've never seen her like this. I said, 'It's terrible.' And Melissa immediately texted her and said, 'Listen, we're all good. Let's move forward.' She never responded."

The Gorgas also claimed that they were "holding in" things about Luis for their sister's sake. "We covered up a lot of things," Melissa said. "A lot of things we know and now I'm sitting back - I'm not gonna lie - second-guessing, like, why?"

"If they broke up or if they had a night that they ran home and started fighting over it - the things that we knew or could say - I don't want to be the one responsible for a couple going home and being miserable," Melissa went on to say. "I don't want to be the one that says, 'Really? Because I know this, this, this and this.' And then send a family home to kids. … And even if we know we're right, we're still not going to send you guys home, it's not going to be on my conscience that I did this and I let this go and that I put this out there because I do believe in karma."

Instead of attending Teresa and Luis' big day at the Park Chateau in East Brunswick, New Jersey, on Saturday, Joe and Melissa decided to have fun at the beach on the wedding day. He also appeared to shade Teresa the night before the wedding. Alongside a photo with other relatives and friends on his Instagram Story, he wrote, "Blood doesn't make you family."
