“The Real Housewives of New Jersey” star Melissa Gorga has known Amber Marchese for years, but they had not talked for years after getting married. But Amber is the newest member of the housewives family and Amber wanted to confront Melissa over her cancer phase a few years ago. According to a new Wetpaint Entertainment report published on July 15, “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” star Melissa Gorga is now revealing that she seriously didn’t know that Amber had cancer.

Amber invited Melissa and Teresa Giudice to her home for a party, so all of the wives were together. But Amber had a motive in inviting Melissa. They used to be friends and party before getting married, but during Amber’s marriage, she got cancer. And she was shocked that Melissa did not reach out and support her during this time.

"I was a little taken back at [Amber's] party when she was coming at me for not acknowledging she had cancer, because I had no idea," Melissa reveals. "How would I have known? She never reached out to tell me. We had no mutual friends that told me. I had no way of knowing and I'm not psychic." And it sounds like Melissa is confused about the infamous Facebook message as well.

Amber claims that Melissa wrote her a message on Facebook, telling her that if she could do anything to help out to let her know. But Melissa doesn’t remember sending such a message and claims she had no idea that Amber was dealing with cancer. Melissa points out that she didn’t even know if Amber was upset with Melissa, or if she even wanted to be friends after the confrontation. At this point, it sounds like fans will have to see how the season unfolds.

Melissa stands firm with her opinion that she didn’t know about her former friend’s struggle. The awkward confrontation could result in drama later this season, as one can imagine that Amber questions Melissa’s claims. After watching the awkward confrontation, do you think Melissa is lying about knowing Amber’s cancer struggle? Or do you think it was an honest reaction?
