True New Jersey householders’ tequila-fueled poker night has put some fuel on the fire.
Melissa Gorga’s husband, Joe, hosted Margaret Josephs’ husband, Joe Benigno, Dolores Catania’s ex-husband, Frank Catania, and Jennifer Aydin’s husband, Bill, for a night of sushi and poker on Wednesday’s episode for the night, and Frank brought up Teresa Giudice’s rumor that Jackie Goldschneider’s husband, Evan, had been unfaithful to her.
After Gorga revealed that Giudice and Melissa pranked him by pretending that Melissa was inappropriately texting a restaurant owner in Lake George, the conversation turned to Jackie and Evan.
“Do you think the girls are having a good time like us?” Aydin asked.
“No, because everyone is going to be arguing about Teresa and Jackie,” Benigno replied.
Catania, by his own admission “eight tequilas in”, asked him to clarify.
“I didn’t hear details but [the] the rumor was that [Evan]He has a girlfriend, ”Benigno said. “And … I heard the same rumors.”
“To be honest with you, at any given time of the day there are 10 girls in my house and none of them speak softly,” he joked.
Gorga added in a confessional: “I am not a detective, but Margaret may have heard this rumor before. I mean he lives in the same house! “
However, when the men rounded the poker table, they all said they thought Evan was faithful to Jackie.
For her part, Jackie denied the accusation that her husband cheated on her. She told Page Six in a recent interview that she was only concerned about how Evan would be portrayed on the show when the rumor aired because she knew it wasn’t true.
“There wasn’t even a question about whether he cheated on me,” he said. “The only reason he was upset was because [Teresa] trying to spread a rumor, not because I questioned my husband. “
She added: “There was no problem in my marriage. It all comes down to Teresa having a problem with me; I think that’s where it all comes from. “
