Although Andy didn’t reveal specifically what happened during the “monumental and upsetting” taping, he dished on the tense “back and forth” between Teresa and Melissa Gorga. Additionally, he shared that his response may be connected to his role as “a parent of a toddler” now.

“There was a moment where I turned to Teresa – I apologized to her later – I didn’t yell at her – but I think I lost my s–t with her in a way that I haven’t maybe ever,” Andy said. “The level of – I won’t even say vitriol – I will say hate Teresa and Melissa [have], it’s, I mean the gloves are off I’ve never seen anything like it, and the way the two of them were going back and forth,” he continued.

Plus, Andy mentioned that during the reunion Teresa and Melissa “didn’t spend a ton of time rehashing” their feud as there were also a “ton of new allegations” and “new material to get into.”
