REAL Housewives Of New Jersey's Joe Giudice ordered his ex Teresa's "ignorant" brother Joe Gorga and his sister-law Melissa to "kiss his butt" after they slammed him on the show.

The 48-year-old saw down with Us Weekly and did not pull any punches when it comes to Teresa's brother and his wife.
He said: “They’re just ignorant and I just don’t pay attention to them. They’re irrelevant, you know what I mean?
"In reality, they oughta kiss my butt for being on that show … they never would be on that show if it wasn’t for me.”
The hostility kicked off after Melissa, 42, and her husband Joe, 41, were not shy about revealing their feelings about the father of four during the 11th season of RHONJ.
After Teresa defended her ex-husband, her brother Joe hit back: "I’m mad at the son of a b**ch for what he did to you! He ruined everything and he put you in jail.
"My wife is a f**king hundred percent right! You gonna defend him?”
The former Gorga’s Homemade Pasta & Pizza owner was not done there as he also blamed Joe for the death of his mom, who died a short time after Teresa was released from prison.
Joe, who fans have labeled his storylines with Melissa as "fake," said: “F**k that piece of s**t. He put my mother in a f**king grave, so I’m supposed to f**king like him?”
Joe went to prison alongside Teresa for exaggerating their income, hiding increased assets, and failing to file tax returns between 2004 and 2008.
He would serve almost four years before being released and deported to Italy – however, he is currently in the Bahamas.
Joe and Teresa were married from 1999 to 2019, and they share four daughters: Gia, 20, Gabriella, 17, Milania, 15, and Audriana, 12.
Joe, who is training for a boxing match with Jennifer "JLo" Lopez's ex-husband Ojani Noa, previously said about Teresa's brother and his sister-in-law: “They always have something stupid to say. It’s not like they ever say anything that even makes any sense.
"If half the stuff they said was true, it’d be alright, but everything they say is just a lie.”
He added: "I don’t want anything from them,It doesn’t matter. They’re in the past and I’ll probably never see them again, which is good.”
The Gorgas may not see eye-to-eye with Teresa's ex, but she has moved on already – she is currently in a relationship with Luis Ruelas.
Despite only dating for about one year, the new couple are quickly getting serious.
They purchased a $3.4M New Jersey mansion together in February, while Teresa shared during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live that she wasn't nervous "at all" to make that big investment with her boyfriend.
