Mel sends some NJ love to Beverly Hills over Brandi's new book.

on Jan 29, 2013 - The Dish0

Brandi Glanville, Melissa Gorga

Becoming a Housewife of any locale enters you into a sisterhood of sorts, and what do sisters do? They pat each other on the back and give props when something good happens to one another.

With Brandi Glanville's new book Drinking & Tweeting on the shelves and B wrapping up her book tour, The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Melissa Gorga reached out via Twitter to throw a little literary love Brandi's way:


Melissa's kind words might also be a bit of paying it forward, as she's one of the next Housewives schedule to become an author as her book tentatively titled
Love, Italian Style: The Secrets of My Hot and Happy Marriage is set to be released this year. Also coming up in the NJ 'Wives book club is Caroline Manzo's Let Me Tell You Something, scheduled to hit shelves this March.

Meantime, why not take some time to enjoy Brandi's other newfound passion, which you'll see in next week's Real Housewives of Beverly Hills:

Brandi and Melissa both have phycial beauty and that is about it. They are always blaming someone for their problems. They ride on the coat tails of others , Cant stand either of them. If Teresa is so awful then why would Melissa want to be on the same show as her. She could of found her way to another .

Brandi, all the best to you & your new book.  You hang in there.  I've been in your shoes.  I had a cheating husband.  He was cheating the entire time we were engaged & married.  Not sure why he wanted to Marry me if there was someone else.  I could have done without that heart-ache. Many years later I ran into him and he said he was sorry.  I found out he married the girl he cheated on me with, then left her after they had a baby for another woman...SHOCKER!  Cheaters always cheat!!  You are a good soul...and don't let the "haters' like (WACKO) Adrienne give you $hit !  or for that matter  "Frozen Face Faye" give you any $hit...she is so irrelevent!  I mean honestly, she thinks she can judge people...she wrote a book about her  good "friend" 2 minutes after she was killed!  WOW !!  Now that's really classy...!!!!

 

Hang in there !!!  Love Yah

It's funny how Melissa was QUICK to send love on Twitter to Brandi, someone she doesn't know, to congratulate her. But, when her own family member wrote not 1, not 2, but 3 NY Times best sellers, I guess the cat got Melissa's tongue. No support for Teresa at all, wow that speaks volumes!  And what's even funnier, Melissa just can't seem to stop walking in her sister-in-law's footsteps...first the show, now she's trying to be an author, sounds familiar? whatever. I'm a fan of all the NJ Wives, but Melissa is the ultimate sister-in-law from the "land down under." Good luck Brandi & Caroline with the success of your books, I'll be buying one of each.

 Maybe Melissa "could of found her way to another", but RHONJ is the only way Teresa could have what she has.  She owes everything she has to this show...everything.

 Teresa did a cookbook...get real!  A cookbook which she used her mother and aunts recipes.  Do you honestly think Teresa is bright enough to write a complete sentence.  She can't even pronous words when she speaks!

This is inane.  The world doesn't revolve around Teresa's jealous, destructive ego.  Since when is a show, any show, the sole territory of the hiree, Teresa.  Since when is writing a book the sole right of Teresa's ghost writer?  There isn't a housewife that hasn't written a book, well before Teresa and her ghost writer, so she stole from all those according to this nonsense.  Melissa and Caroline and anyone else has the same rights as anyone else--they are not under a ego driven tyrant's boot.  Teresa received plenty of support that Tre demands her fans ignore, and they follow like lemmings.  Jealous Teresa wants everything to be about her and everyone must bow down to her or she will destroy them. Her lack of empathy towards the others and their families is sickening. Good for them that they won't allow Tre and her fans bully them.

 @kimberlyjohnson I was gonna like your comment until You wished Caroline success. I hate her almost as much as Melissa. skin crawling... ugh.

 @millania.duprete  @kimberlyjohnson I can't believe the harsh words being used against Melissa and Carolina. Melissa didn't congratulate Teresa because she is a terrible sis-in-law, friend and person. Btw.. Teresa is not the first Housewife to write a book. Give me a break! Much success to both Caroline and Melissa and their writing endeavors.

  @kimberlyjohnson  Lets see, Melissa went to Teresa's first book signing and then what book was it that Teresa bashed Melissa in it?  Teresa threw a fit and is still mad that Bravo invited Melissa to join the show. Why? Because Teresa wants all the good fortune for herself, being the selfish sister/sisterinlaw/friend she is. Just like Teresa wished Melissa well in her singing career, right? Teresa was so kind and generous.NOT Good luck to Melissa, Caroline and my fave, Brandi
