Melissa Gorga of The Real Housewives of New Jersey
The Real Housewives of New Jersey's Melissa Gorga can pack a (verbal) punch... but only if someone else takes the first swing. "You have to push me first, I will never make the first move. I will never go and hurt you," she tells RealityTea.com. "You have to kinda egg me on to get me going. I don't come in with problems. I wear my heart on my sleeve. I love everyone."

Preferring to hit high notes rather than below the belt, the RHONJ star adds, "You could put me at dinner with Obama and I'd try to find a way to work it out and you could put me with the Rock of Love chicks and I'll get along with them too!" Now there's a dinner party to give those Beverly Hills 'Wives a run for their millions. "I'll never, ever throw the first punch. I think you'll see more of that on season four."

In keeping with that big love message, Melissa also hopes to keep the peace in the blogophere this season. "If I ever see anyone tweeting really negatively towards my sister-in-law, I don't want that. I don't look for that. If you're gonna support me, support me. Don't hate on someone else; just support who you like."

How will Melissa's peacekeeping plan be tested this season? Find out when The Real Housewives of New Jersey returns this Sunday.
