So far, Teresa Giudice has outlived Victoria Gotti, Adam Carolla, Patricia Velasquez, Tia Carrere, Cheryl Tiegs, George Takei, Debbie Gibson, Michael Andretti and Dee Snider on the Celebrity Apprentice. And according to her sister-in-lawand Real Housewives of New Jersey co-star Melissa Gorga, that's not a coincidence.
"I think Teresa being quiet is more of a strategy than anything else," Melissa tells Housewives blogger Lynn N Chicago about T's boardroom survival skills. It may not be Hunger Games, but Melissa adds, "We have been trying to watch each week. It's been fun to watch and I can't believe how intense the boardrooms and challenges are getting."
Not to say there won't be drama, but Melissa promises this season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey won't be as cutthroat as Mr. Trump's competitive gem. "This time around I think the fans are going to get to see a little more of what they are looking for – reconciliation and lots of fun times. You can see from the preview, there was definitely drama and relationships change between the Housewives for the good and the bad. But most of the season was filmed during the summer, so you get to see everyone let loose and have fun down on the shore." Snooki, is that you?
Prepare yourselves – the Jersey Housewives return on April 22.
the only viable "strategy" I see is T realized that even a fool will appear wise if she keeps her mouth shut.
Melissa...you are stating an opionion because you start off with " I think Tre strategy is being quiet" Have you ever thought to ask Teresa what her strategy happened to be? No...why is that? because you still are not speaking with your sister in law... but you will do anything to take the spot light away from Teresa and draw the spotlight on you ....Go beyond your fear and anger and embrace Teresa with love. Ask her to forgive you for all the wrongs you have committed and then maybe she will be more than happy to let you ride her coat tails with no strings attached.
Melissa....Some people are very difficult to deal with...You may have noticed this. Might this be because you, too, are not always easy going? You may have a very affable air but your likes and dislikes are so strong and very intense...You soon become very defensive when your likes and dislikes are challenged...or when you are kept apart from your preferences...You should try hard to make allowance for other people difficult behavior...Hopefully, someone else, in turn will extend the same courtesy to you. I said all that to say this...it is obvious that you have now... all of sudden become the great expert in Teresa strategy on Apprentice...You made a comment that went like this " I think teresa being quiet is more of a strategy...which tells me that you have not asked teresa what her strategy was on apprentice because you are not speaking with her....I hope that is not the case but the way you worded it...sounds like that is the case...I would only suggest to you that y0u work very hard on taking the log out of your eye and stop worrying about taking the spec out of teresa eye...Keep your comments about teresa to yourself...unless they are inspirational and uplifting. Hope one day all works out between you and your husband sister!
Melissa - U R only relevant BECAUSE of Teresa! Remember that! U R only on this show because of HER! U weaseled UR way on the show at her expense. The only reason the producers wanted U on the show was because U would stir up family drama with Teresa. With family like that U don't need enemies! NOTHING Teresa has ever done or said on the show was as dirty as what U, Joey and Kathy did.
I wish Teresa would confront Lampinilli about her comments that Teresa is dumb and useless in the creative end of challenges.
I can't believe people don't think you need to treat Teresa with kindness and etc. what the heck do they think you have been doing? If she was only having trouble with you it would be questionable about who was at fault but she seems to over react to almost everyone. Silence is definately the best thing for her as she doesn't come accross as limited in knowledge as she seems when she turns innocent remarks into something so far from what is being said. I have no problem with your comments.
You all need to stop being mean o Melissa Gorga. If anything she is one of the nicest housewives. Teresa is a lying, old, mean, gossip telling bag and you all know it. She is obviously SUPER jealous of Melissa music career and sucess. At least Melissa's husband, (Teresa's brother) isn't a money stealing beast. Enough Said.
Melissa-sounds like your low key fans and friends are coming out and behaving like a bunch of bullies...I mean that is what you referred to Teresa fans....in an interview with Reality tea...that teresa fans are mean and bullies and vicious and insane like Teresa....Im no fan of Teresa or anyone else for that matter...but I see Teresa behavior and I see your behavior and Teresa does try hard to stay above the fray...you should try it sometime...but I can see a double standard here...and I am intelligent enough to see hyprocrisy when I see it...there is no need to have your fans and friends begin to attack other people who dont agree with you...dont turn it into a blood bath...there are people out there that believe in that old saying eye for an eye...it never has a good outcome....for people like you....so like I said earlier. build bridges, be uplifting and inspirational in your speech and actions and then you will be able to see the beauty in everyone and everything!
Melissa i like your character! I think Teresa needs to stop starting so much drama and realize the are more important things in life to worry about than every detail about you and your life with her brother. She's like a time bomb always exploding! I think she should watch herself on tv to see how crazy and mean she looks when she opens her mouth screaming. Sucks we don't get to choose our in laws sometimes..AND people who need to talk bad about you are just haters, jealous and bored with their own lives they need some drama to feed off of.
Melissa never says anything nice about Teresa. She never apologizes to Teresa, and never holds any accountability for her actions. Joe Gorga is an embarrassment to many because he never stands up for his family. He has no respect & loyalty to his family, and that's what irks me about him. What kind of man would stoop so low to destroy his sister and parents all in the name of fame? I feel so bad for Teresa and her family to have a son and a shameful brother constantly degrade and manipulate his only sibling. He's jealous of Teresa when he should support his sister, and be happy for her. Shame on you Melissa! You have no shame! You've destroyed your husband and his family. You clearly never cared for Teresa. It's obvious! No matter how many times you try to outshine Teresa, it won't work! You will only be relevant because of Tre. Remember that!
Melissa, you are such a backstabber and a two-faced "family" member. Melissa you always act like such an "angel", the poor baby that Theresea supposedly messes up your marriage or your relationship with her family. You are a very double-standard person. You perform to benefit yourself. Caroline is a total martyr. Kathy takes sides where the power is.
The christening was all your fault. You instigated the entire argument. Your husband was tipsy, you added your comments and your comments is what started it. You are the blame. Theresea didn't do ANYTHING wrong. You have only yourself, and now your crying husband to blame what your baby is going to have for video memories. Get it?
Your a snake. You don't give Theresea any credit for anything and you FORGET, her brother is HER brother always. When her brother wakes up and see the manipulation you have been instigating, and realizes it is because of YOU he and his family have issues - you will need to change your tune that everyone won't be shedding tears every time you play martyr.
