Joe Gorga doesn’t think anyone understands how he feels amidst his feud with his sister Teresa Giudice.
“People always say, ‘I know how you feel.’ Nah, you really don’t,” he captioned an Instagram photo of himself on Tuesday.
The post came just days after Giudice tied the knot with Luis “Louie” Ruelas. However, Gorga, 42, and his wife Melissa Gorga, 43, were noticeably absent from the celebrations because of a “very tense ‘housewives’ finale” that was filmed shortly before the wedding.
A source close to the family told Page Six that the couple turned down their last-minute invitations after Giudice, 50, spread a rumor that would “cause drama” in her brother’s marriage.
Another source added that Joe and Ruelas didn’t see eye to eye and the finale pushed them both over the edge.

After the snub, the Skinny Italian writer made it clear where she stands with her younger brother.
During Saturday’s reception, as Ruelas, 48, toasted friends and family, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star corrected him and thanked her “chosen family.”

Joe’s comments on Tuesday weren’t the first time the business owner has shadowed his sister on social media.
The night before their wedding, he captioned an Instagram Story photo with his in-laws, “Blood doesn’t make you family.”
Melissa, meanwhile, wrote how “God bless [her] with a great family” over a video of her relatives dancing.

Although the reality TV star’s brother and sister-in-law weren’t in attendance, “housewives” came from across the country to celebrate the newlyweds.

Giudice stunned in a strapless Mark Zunino dress paired with a crystal tiara atop an extravagant updo. She completed the look with an embroidered veil with the Italian phrase “Semper Insieme” (meaning “always together”).
Giudice’s four daughters – Gia, 21, Gabriella, 17, Milania, 16, and Audriana, 12, who she shares with ex-husband Joe Giudice – served as bridesmaids in light pink satin dresses.
