In the upcoming episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Melissa and Joe meet with sh*t-talking wanna-be housewife to find out why she was spreading the rumors about Melissa.
“Who’s behind this cheating thing?” Joe asks Penny.
“Everyone’s pointing to you,” Melissa adds, “Where are you pointing?”
“It was your sister,” she says. “She asked me if I knew who **** was, and then she said to me, ‘Can you confront my brother about it’?”
Melissa is astonished by this: “She asked you to confront him about my ex?”
After Penny confirms that Teresa did approach her, Melissa calls Penny out about lying to her the last time the two women met.
“Wait hold on. At that Milania party, she [Teresa] said to you, ‘Penny, we’re not friends, right? You don^1t know me, right’?” Melissa says.
Penny says that she lied that night for Teresa, and then Melissa tells her that Teresa doesn’t like her.
“As far as her not liking me, there’s a lot of things I can say,” she states. “I can show you on my phone right I have her house number and her cell number. “I’ll show you. Am I lying? I’m not going to take the bullet for everything. John has text messages from her. John’s my husband. “
Joe pieces two and two together and realizes it’s Penny’s husband who has been harassing Melissa online.
And Melissa is turned off by the whole situation.
“This guy Johnny has really been abusing me hard on Twitter, Social Media, at the time,” she tells the cameras. “I just didn’t know why he was doing this, but now the tie in between Johnny, Penny and Teresa, it’s starting to make sense in my head. There’s a connection between the three of them.”
