Melissa, there is something i dont trust about kathy. I think she is jealous of your relationship with teresa. what do you think?
I really enjoyed the night and felt like it couldn't have gone better, but watching the episode I saw that Teresa and Joe Giudice felt VERY different. Teresa said I don't act like a Gorga, but the truth is I'm not a Gorga! I'm a Marco and very proud of it! She needs to realize that her brother's married and learn to welcome people into the Gorga family. There are a lot of wonderful people out there that are not Gorgas! Also, was I really dressed inappropriately? I had leggings on, geez! I like to dress festively for the holidays! I do every year!
There is no denying that Teresa is hard to please, but come on, I'm really trying here! I wanted everyone to be happy, I wanted them to see that I'm not the reason Joe and Teresa aren't getting along. I'm pushing for them to be together. But maybe you can understand why Joe doesn't want to be around his sister's husband and his family when he says horrible things about his wife.
I'm completely in shock with Joe Giudice's behavior. I had absolutely no idea he was saying those things about me that night. I think it is disgusting and definitely not normal behavior for a 41-year-old man to speak about a lady like that, on Christmas no less. He's watching me happily take pictures of the kids and talking behind my back. Calling me a “witch” and saying that my husband and I are “animals.” Not cool! Joe and I are trying really hard to fix this, why is he doing that? Why is he saying that? I think those are really mean words, and I'm really upset he feels that way.
Just for the record, I have done nothing to hurt Joe Giudice or his family. I have no idea what his problem is with me. Joe and I were really taken aback by his comments. It's funny how my Joe says in his interview that he always hears how the Giudices and Joe talk behind our back and then Joe Giudice goes and proves it. He says who would want to be her, well Joe Giudice, I happen to be very grateful for everything in my life and I think I live a great life, so please stop analyzing it and just worry about your own. He is Antonia's godfather, I chose him over my other brother-in-laws, shame on him. I see he says something really nasty in the preview for next week's episode and it makes me sick. I hope Teresa puts him in his place like she always tells her brother to do. With that said, I really hope we can stay as happy as we all are right now, because I'm really loving this and Joe and the kids are so happy. Time will tell.
Melissa, there is something i dont trust about kathy. I think she is jealous of your relationship with teresa. what do you think?
Melinda, I think you have some good intentions but Family is first. Why are you outting your familys dirty laundry? its so hard to watch and I have watched this show wayy befoer you are on it and now it makes me sad. You obviously were recruited for the show because they knew you would start drama with your family and thats just wrong. Kim G was friends with Danielle.... I think that says enough about her. Stay real!! love and light
You don't like Teresa and Teresa doesn't like you, why not leave it at that and tell your husband to quit pushing the issue. You guys will never be a family or friends and although it makes for good TV, the situation is not good for either family. If he wants to visit his sister, let him, tell him you're busy. Find excuses. The smart comments aren't helping anything. If the kids are meant to be close when they get older, they will be. You or your husband will have nothing to do with that. My whole Italian family was just like what is going on in the show and my mother never got along with some of her sister in laws. So what? My cousins and me and my sisters got along, that was good enough for me. Tell Joe to leave it alone. You will be better off.
Melissa, you are a lucky lady to have such a kind husband. Joe seems to be all about family and he seems to wear his heart on his sleeve. I hope that he and his family will be able to rekindle their relationship. Life is short, and having just lost my darling mother, I can tell you that he should enjoy every moment that he can with his parents. You guys should try to forget the past. I wish that you would stop making jabs at Teresa. I am no fan of here, but it makes you look bad when you are nice to her face, and when she is not around you make snide comments. Not nice and definitely not constructive. Help your husband to heal the wounds with his family, and try not to add salt to the wound. You will be happier then. Also, please try to be a little less materialistic and bombastic. It is not very lady-like. All of you should look to Caroline to see what a real lady is like. I would be her friend any day, and her kids should be very thankful to have a mother like her. She is a solid lady....you can be too if you let yourself grow up a little more. You do have a good core.
You are so jealous of Teresa... It seems like you are mad at her because she didn't have to marry into money and you did!!! I don't understand how you can talk about her but claim you want everyone to be Family!!! You are a joke and the way you play your husband against his sister is just insane!!! I hope you get yourself together and realize your real sisters don't have the same life style and you are goning to let your family bring you back down to their level because your sisters and their husbands are bigger jokes then you!!!
Just want to say to Melissa u r a gorgeous woman but besides that u have a HEART!:) I can see u r real and I luv u for that!!
Melissa, you have a very beautiful family and you and your husband are very genuine people. And unforunately, your sisterinlaw and brother inlaw need to take some lessons on what it takes to make a marriage work. I liked Theresa last season, not so much this season. She needs to run her own household not yours...that's her problem. Jealousy. Keep up the good work and great attitude.
I was wrong the first time I posted something to you. I see now that Theresa has an issue with you. It's a jealousy issue. Perhaps because you're younger etc. but mainly because you are the one her brother is in love with. It's obvious that this is a bitter pill for her to swallow. Her husband says some really gross douchey things about you. I think he desires you and is covering up by saying awful things. It's becoming more and more obvious as the weeks go by that you and Joe are sweethearts and the life of the party. This could cause majoy envy especially from Theresa who likes to be the center of attention. I don't think she's ever been used to sharing the spotlight. Hopefully she'll learn to just enjoy her sister in law and brother! Your kids are so adorable especially little Antionia!
Melissa, at first I thought you were mean and fake. Now I think you're a nice woman just a little misunderstood. You seem to try with your sister in law and she picks at you. Please don't take it personal, they say people that are hurting will hurt people. Try to be understanding that Teresa is not as blessed as you and your family, just love her and be there for her. It seems like the rude comments she makes towards you is only a defense mechanism because she is a vulnerable and hurt person. Keep on doing you, you're beautiful!
MELISSA, AT FIRST I WAS NOT INTO YOUR WAYS, BUT AFTER DOING THAT FOR SOMEONE WHO WAS UNCOMFORTABLE, I THINK YOUR ALRIGHT. IN MY BOOK
MELISSA, I THINK YOU DID A GREAT JOB, AND TERESA SHOULD OF BEEN HAPPY WITH THAT. TERESA NEEDS TO KNOW THAT THINGS CAN ONLY GO SO FAR. AND AT THE END. KIM-G WAS PUT OUT, FOR HER ONLY REASONS. JUST WATCH OUT, SHE'S TROUBLE. AND FOR HER AGE SHE NEEDS TO STOP WITH THE DRAMA.
Melissa, you are a wonderful addition to this show! You bring the "fun" back to the New Jersy Housewives!
Melissa, best of luck with the inlaw drama. My hat goes off to you. You seem to have done a lot right by your inlaws (naming your kids after tem, following traditions etc.), so hang in there. A lot of us have had to put up with sister in laws who simply can not accept the fact that their brother now has a wife who comes first. This is clearly Teresa's issue with you, so stand your ground. My only objection to you would be your tremendous spending. Hopefully this will not catch up with you, take Teresa as an example on this topic.
If you READ Teresa's blog again she said Joe's comments were in reference to how the fight at the baptism. You and Joe made that fight happen. No one else! Hopefully this can be fixed but stop pushing Kathy and her together. I think that it is one thing to stand by your partner but not when family is right. People manipulate one another and if it is causing problems and it's the wife... Toss her in therapy to find out why!
One of the best moments of the season was when you and Teresa were dancing together at your Christmas party. It looked like genuine enjoyment. but in the video clips between you were making remarks about Teresa. I thought things were going to get resolved finally, but both you and Teresa continued making critical remarks about the other. I am very disappointed in Joe Guidice for the things he said about you at their Christmas Eve dinner. I have not liked the way you and Kathy have treated Teresa since the beginning and have hoped they would eliminate your roles from the show next season because I see no compassion for the difficulties in Teresa's life from either of you and pretty much the same with your husband. Joe (your husband) is more influenced by your feelings about Teresa than his own. That is why trouble continues. I have to say he handled things graciously at Teresa's on Christmas Eve. I appreciate how kind he was to her when she felt disappointed about your family leaving. I hope on the reunion show both of the Joe's will be invited and instead of arguing, will apologize for the things they have said and done to each other and to each other's wives. I can't see anything with you and Kathy other than just sticking together to hurt Teresa. It should end ,and can, when you no longer find value in it. When it no longer feels good to get together with Kathy to say hurtful things about Teresa, you will stop. I find the attitudes among all of you to be less than mature. You have so much going for you in your lives that I wonder why isn't it enough to cause you to be happy and peaceful. I am in my 50's, widowed, lost my job a year and a half ago and really struggle to meet a financial responsibility of $1800.00 a month as I slowly go broke and can't find work. I have a one year old grandson I would love to buy things for and can do very little in that area, and yet I don't argue with anyone in my life. I am currently giving about 50% of my time to a close relative who needs help who has been the most hurtful person in my life. I help in her struggle, knowing I am doing the right thing, even though she has an ungrateful nature. I don’t' argue with her and I tend to my life, trying to find work, caring for my Grandson and doing the best I can. Can't you find it somewhere in your heart to show love and compassion to Teresa, not for a day, but always. When you can do it, so will Kathy. There will be no more joy in separation and war. Your husband Joe will be free to do the same and rejoin his family. Take the high road (but don't say you did) and allow Teresa's family to have the love and peace they deserve. It is all with you. It always has been.
Melissa- I loved how beautiful your home was for Christmas and your party. That's what it's all about....fun, family, friends and giving back. I can totally relate to in-law issues. It's so hard on everyone involved and unfortunately everyone gets involved. You and Joe have totally stepped up and proven what good people you are and that you "genuinely" want to be a big happy family. Jealousy and selfishness are horrible demons to have. They drive wedges of great porportions. That is what I deal with as well. Just know that you and Joe are coming from a place of love and keep sending out positive energy and the Universe will continue to cater to that love. I wish you the best, Gorgeous Gorgas! P.S. Your kiddos are so freaking adorable!
Melissa, although I have been a Teresa fan since the show first started, I have changed my mind and you are now my favorite. Joe is a scum bag!
Texas for Melissa
Nothing is quite what it seems. But Teresa is jealous of you with her brother. She makes these quipy comments and acts like she is being nice. Best of luck to you and your family. Fame has changed Teresa, hope it does not effect you the same way.
OH MELISSA MELISSA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have to admit, i wasnt a fan of yours at the beginning. Although with every episode coming i love you more and more- and your husband Joe- just cant get enough of him, he totally cracks me up. Even my husband started watching the show!!!!!! I do love Theresa but it seems like you and Joe come up with all this effort to finally make up and bring the family together but cant say the same about Theresa and especially her husband, who's comments about you in his house were completely inappropriate and out of line. it seems like he doesnt want Theresa to be close with her brother and his family. I think JELOUSY(BIG TIME) plays a big role with him. I wish you all the best. Stay sweet and beautiful!!!
Melissa, It appears to me that you are a Master Manipulator! You are very good at manipulating situations to make it appear that you are "trying" or that you are the "victim" ...give it up! We can see right through you! You were jealous of a brother/sister relationship and you broke apart years of love and trust. Nice job, Jesus Lover!
I would just like to let you know after seeing the actual xmas episode. I hate yyou more but in the best way posssible. You and Joe are amazing I am so jealous of you too and your relationship and lifestyle. You have a great husband girl. I am sure vice versa for you as a wife. I am just not the jealous type but I am of you and your life. Your kids,home,husband, you and lifestyle is unbelieveable. Watching you guys makes me so happy. Keep doing your thing! God knows if I had it like you I would be doing it up the same.
Melissa-I think u handled this whole situation with Teresa perfectly. U r my fav housewife and I love u!!
Melissa, I think that your family is really trying to make things better. They wanted to get upset because yall left to spend time with Kathy, but who would want to stay there and hear those nasty comments. Theresa's husband is poison with no compassion. It is obvious that he is truly unhappy with his life. Like they say misery loves company. Best wishes:)
I just saw photos of your home on bravotv.com. You and Joe have excellent taste. Your home is large but done very tastfully and not over the top. Maybe you should give some decorating tips to your sister-in-law! I find Teresa's home to be obnoxious and horrible.
Joe Giudice was speaking about you siter Lysa. It has been explainedand makes sense.
Why do you keep blaming the Giudices for ruining you son's Christening? It is all on tape Melissa, you and Joey should watch again..Btw when did he ever apologize for calling his sister those awful names in front of her daughter, and screaming at his his parents?
Hey Melissa, love love love you and Joe. You should not get Joe Guidice's comments get to you I'm pretty sure it is out of jealousy and insecurity. I do think your brother in law was very rude asking Joe Guidice about the money he owes him. It's Christmas and it was not the right time or place to have that conversation with him. And your sisters should try to stay out your business when it comes to your relationship with Teresa because your guys are still trying to work things out. I just didn't like the fact that one of your sister had the audacity to question why you kicked out Kim G's friend. It's none of her business it was your house and party. Love your party because it incorporated giving to the less fortunate. Love those kids being together on Christmas Eve.
You have such beautiful children! I honestly can't get over how adorable they are! btw I really respect you for trying so hard with Theresa. God Bless!
Oh, and you DIDN'T drag Teresa on the dancefloor. We saw that you were already dancing and Teresa came on the dancefloor and said, "I want to dance with my sister in law...." Don't get it twisted.
Loved How U Wanted Things To Be Better; Sometimes People Take Kindness For Weakness & Its Tough To Be The Better Person! Stay Positive :)
Melissa, you are a great PLUS on the show, you keep it real. Teressa and Joe are haters and fake people pretending and failing to have class. you handled the situation with Kim and Monica with real class.
Melissa, let me first start by apologizing to you for the misjudgment on my part. It has become so obvious that you have bent over backwards to make peace with everyone. My heart broke to hear Joe Guidice making those comments behind your back at Christmas, a time for peace and love! Teresa and Joe really showed themselves to be classless for all they said that night. Honey it has become obvious that you are not only a beautiful person on the outside but as well as on the inside you have a heart of gold. As many of the comments have said keep your head high....well girl keep it high!!! Your so blessed and you are greatful for all the blessings that you have and that says alot for your character. May your family continue to be blessed and happy!!!
Melissa I was so sad to hear Joe G. comments about you, deplorable. It must be awful for you to see, as well, seeing what you and Joe Go. look like always trashing your family. I honestly want to know if it is a NJ thing that no one is raised w/ any class.
Wow melissa, you seemed to have us fooled when you stated you were trying to reconcile with your sister in law.. Clearly that is not true, if it was I dont understand why you put be on the show she is in, knowing that would cause friction and I went to your website and all it does is bash Teresa. Its disgusting.
You looked beautiful at the christmas party...don't take what Joe Giu said to heart...I think he caught a reflection of himself off the table and decided to describe what he saw.
Your children looked beautiful!
I think you are being the biggest person trying to make your relationship work with Teresa and your husband. Its sad to see that you guys are family and none of you get along. I love love love Teresa but I have to admit that some comments are inappropriate! And Joe Guidice shoould stop with the comments if he really loved his wife. I agree that Teresa needs to step up and shut him up because believe me...if my husband would make so much as a stupid comment playing around...I would put him on check and maybe even knock him around a couple of times! I wish you luck and I hope your family situation gets better because the kids are the ones to suffer. You are beautiful and have an amazing voice so keep pursuing your career and stay positive!
Your party looked like it turned out very well even with the drama. You and Joe did a nice thing by providing gifts for sick children as well. You have quickly become my favorite housewife from Jersey. You are trying to mend fences with your sister and brother-in-law and taking the high road. It surly can't be easy! Hang in there and be yourself. You're first class all the way.
You are cute as a button. I didn't like you at first, was on the T Train. But I see that you are trying to make things better. You keep doing you. You have a beautiful family and you and Joe seem to be very much in love and have fun. You did the right thing at the party. Teresa has to handle her own wars, in fact, not make everything a war. She could have shown Kim G that she doesn't aeffect her and just have a good time at the party. That would have bothered Kim G more. Teresa has a lot of growing up to do, or maybe she needs to go through anger management.
Week after week you are improving but you let your sisters do what they do and it makes you look really bad. They are famewhores and give you a really bad name. Joe Giudice should have said those things about your sister and in reality you should be sticking up for Joe and Teresa to them too and then Joe wouldn't have to feel like he has to defend his family to them. This was xmas - months ago - let it go. Daily your sisters keep bringing it up and stirring the pot on facebook. It's the Marco Sisters which means you're involved as well. All three of you need to grow up. Your sisters are the problem. No one else. You're talking the talk now walk the walk to Teresa's face AND behind her back. Be Consistent and Make Peace!
You have definitely made me change my opinion about you. I started out thinking you were full of yourself and the root of the problems in the family. However, with every new episode it is apparent how much of a nice person you are and how you are trying to keep the family together. Keep up the good work at mending the ties and continue maintaining your faith. It's wonderful to hear someone on TV mention Jesus and thanking him. -Jeanette Monmouth County NJ housewife
Melissa, I really like you on the show but I have to admit that I was horrified when I noticed your nanny in the car on Christmas eve! Doesn't she want to be with her family or friends? I don't believe anyone should work on Jesus' birthday.
I dont think Joe said those things about you and if he did... get over it he is obviously going through some things! I honestly feel bad for him he just seems upset and I think Teresa is trying really hard to be there for him! He should not have said what he did about anyone whether it be you or who ever but he's just going through rough times and this is all on camera, be the gracious person I think you are a forgive him and continue to kill him with kindness!!
HI MELISSA! Im starting to like you, but I have to say you have talked so much crap this season about teresa, & her husbands family! you get so offended wen they talk about you and your family! I gotta say im not buying it!! I want to like you not felel sorry for you! Your sister lisa is a trouble maker! both your sisters and kathy were sucking up to Kim G. they acted like you all were best friends! joe was talking about lisa! not you, lisa pulled an elderly ladies hair, who does that!
Melissa, I am a middle age man who never saw women act this way towards each other, I am on your side, and for Teressa the reason I think your sister in law and brother were so mad at the christening, you were late, your husband did not come, but he came for the food, he is a bully and it seems a very mean stubborn guy, you have a wonderful family, never lose that, if you do you will regret the rest of your life, you also Teressa you are not the nicest person in the world, melissa is trying, why aren't you.
I try to fair between you and Teresa. I must write that I didn't agree with the dress at your son's Christening but the Christmas outfit was fine. Even my son said after Teresa comment, "What's wrong with her outfit?" I reply, nothing. You had your legs covered and your breast wasn't even showing much if at all. YThe girls in my family have a nice serving size of breast so even on Christmas something on somebody is showing. And the comments made by Mr. Guidice. Damn! Really, why even go there on Christmas. Caroline made a comment that he is going through a lot but that didn't fly with me. It was just simply not called for.
I enjoy your show very much. Joe's comments were out of line, I think you are making an honest effort to get along and he should as well.
Melissa, Joe disrespecting you was his opinion and his alone. It was not a appropriate time or place to express that type of opinion, just as your husband had his opinion of his sister at the Christening. I don't agree with either Joe or Joey, but you cannot control what comes out of a person’s mouth. Let's not forget your evil sisters and disrespectful brother in-law that went after Joe at the Christmas party. I always say you do not have to like each other but you do have to respect each other.
I love the Manzo’s but why are you & Joey acting like they are the King & Queen of NJ. The whole kissing of Al’s hand was a bit too much. Stop trying so hard, if you become friends it will happen naturally. I have friends and I have associates, let what happens happen or you may push them away.
Melissa you guys are great - I love Theresa but she needs to grow up. You have shown so much class and I really feel like you are showing you are the better person. Theresa's Joe is so rude and is so disresfectful - Theresa has no problem with him purposely being late to all of your events - She makes excuses. He really is part of the problem. He really is jealous because of your husbands success. Be strong Melissa ~ You are the woman!
