The Real Housewives of New Jersey season three premiered last night on Bravo and introduced two new cast members, Melissa Gorga and Kathy Wakile, who immediately got into the middle of the drama!
Melissa and Kathy joined Teresa Giudice, Jacqueline Laurita and Caroline Manzo on the Today show with Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb before the premiere.
After last night’s episode where Teresa and Melissa got into a huge fight, you would think they couldn’t be in the same room, but the ladies sat right by each other during their interview.
“It’s really deep. It’s real,” Melissa said of the fight. “There are a lot of emotions going on. It’s unfortunate. The cameras caught it all. It happens.”
“Did you hesitate at all — saying, ‘I don’t want cameras in my face and I don’t want my children’s lives being chronicled?’ ” Kathie Lee asked.
“Absolutely. I really thought about it for months and months and months,” Melissa explained. “I was nervous that this was going to happen and of course it did. And here we are. I signed on the dotted line and I’ve got to go with it.”
Hoda then asked, “Teresa, are you glad that you’re doing it? Honestly, is this something that you’re pleased you’re a part of?”
“It is a great experience being on the show,” Teresa explained. “I was able to write two books… but there are ups and down. I guess it comes with it. I didn’t know getting into it because I was never on TV before.”
