Melissa and Joe were spotted having a great time near the water before returning home to Toms River, NJ, a mere 55-minute car ride from the location of Teresa and Louie's wedding celebration.
Instead of a dress, the RHONJ OG's sister-in-law was photographed soaking up the sun in a nude strapless bikini top.
Melissa made her presence known by pairing her two-piece with a loud, tie-dyed sarong, flip-flops, and a black Von Dutch hat. Joe stood by her side — instead of his sister's — opting to sport striped swim shorts, a gray t-shirt, a white hat, and sandals.
He held the phone to his ear tightly while loading up their black Mercedes SUV to head home after the beach getaway. As RadarOnline.com reported, Melissa and Joe pulled out of attending Teresa's wedding last minute — reportedly over something that was said during the reunion filming one week before her ceremony.
“They were invited,” an insider told Page Six, adding there was a “very tense ‘Housewives’ finale” filmed right before the wedding.
Rumor has it that the "tense" topic was an allegation that Melissa had cheated on Joe.
Teresa seemingly threw shade at her brother and sister-in-law during her speech when she shouted out her “chosen family.”
While Melissa and Joe weren't there, several RHONJ cast members were in attendance.
Dolores Catania, Jackie Goldschneider, Margaret Josephs and Jennifer Aydin were there. Several other housewives from different franchises also made the list.
