I really LOVE you! I have enjoyed watching your family this season! I feel the main problem with Teresa and Melissa is jealousy. Teresa can't stand it if she's not the center of attention; Melissa comes along and she is prettier, younger and has the love and devotion of Teresa's brother. Joe Gorga showers Melissa with fabulous gifts, and even tho Teresa has bankrupted her husband into providing her the same luxuries, she calls Melissa a gold digger: how is Teresa any different. You are caught in the crossfire of Teresa's jealousy bc you decided to befriend Teresa's mortal enemy: Melissa. She will never forgive that and she will never embrace Melissa as family because jealousy never goes away. It always lurks just below the surface and rears up with any opportunity to discredit Melissa, and you, also. Melissa's snarky comments are a response to the hundreds of snarky comments made by Teresa. Teresa is a bully and the only way to deal with a bully is head-on. You might as well write off Teresa as you will never be able to trust her; her jealousy has ruined her. Good luck!
