Teresa Giudice and her husband, Louie Ruelas, were left off the guest list for Joe Gorga's birthday.

"Teresa wasn't invited to Joe's birthday party," the source spilled about their ongoing rift, engined by Teresa and the Envy boutique owner's intense disdain for each other. "They [Teresa and Melissa] have not been speaking to each other."

During the explosive Season 13 reunion, the Dancing With the Stars alum and Melissa emphasized the tension between them, with Teresa making it clear she could not wait to "never" see her sister-in-law's face again.

"They haven't spoken since the reunion," the insider said, adding that Joe and Teresa's relationship is "still damaged" from last year after the OG's brother and wife accused her of spreading a rumor about their marriage.

"It's still an open wound for Joe," the source noted of the relationship with his only sibling. "He's upset and of course would've loved to have his sister at the party, but their relationship is over at this point."

In fact, when the Standing Strong author and the "On Display" songstress both attended costar Jennifer Fessler's birthday bash on August 15, they kept their distance. "They hung out with their own friends and they both ignored each other completely," the source dished about the family members.
