Hi everyone! Hope you are having a great summer. I had the best weekend down on the shore with my family. What a great time!
Is this the longest Christmas ever? Geez! I feel like we have been watching Christmas forever. But who doesn't love it, so I guess there can never be too much.
So back to Christmas Eve at Teresa's house. Like I said before, what a wonderful time the kids had, I loved watching them together. Joe and I wanted to do the right thing and make sure we went to both Teresa and Kathy's houses. It was only right. Kathy had asked us when we had no plans for Christmas Eve and of course we said yes. We always go to Joe's family on Christmas Eve and my family on Christmas day. I do know Kathy had every intention of inviting Teresa too. That's why she kept persisting on talking to her at my party. Teresa just isn't ready I guess. I wish instead of pulling her brother aside and talking about the couple hours we were not going to spend there, she would have just cherished all the hours that we were there and be happy that we are all taking the steps to work this out. Her parents were happy, the kids were happy, and we all really enjoyed each other's company. Why always look for the negative? What about all the good that just happened? I felt bad for my husband because he was put on the spot, but he's a big boy and he handled it the right way. Of course Antonia didn't want to leave her cousins, but when she got to Kathy's house she was very happy to play with her other cousins Victoria and Joey! They treat her like a little doll, she had the best time at both houses!
Melissa-youve made me do a complete 180 on my feelings for you-and noone can say it's because you've read the comments and changed because the comments are after the filming. You really do seem to be trying with Teresa now joe should be ashamed for saying those things about you and keep out of it. He is going through alot and you can tell the stress is taking it's toll on them both. PS-I'd do your husband 2x's a day-he is sooooo hot.
I maybe wrong but they were dinning on the floor celebrating their anniversary . It was a romantic gesture, they do have a dining room table . Stay positive and dont follow Teresa's husband negativity.
Melissa, I love that you can laugh at mean comments made about you. I think you and Joe(y) are a wonderful couple. I pray for your whole family to be reunited with love and forgiveness. God bless you all!
Nice move MElissa,
Guess your PR people advised you to tone down the Teresa bashing on your blog. Although you have soften your approach as of late...you are still pretty transparent to me. I am no fan of Teresa, but for some reason i am just turned off by you. YOu are an awesome manipulator and you are very calculating....one day this show will end and your famewhoring will slowly die down. You will have to ask yourself this....was it all worth it?
I think you are okay. At first I thought you would be a trouble maker, but you are really cool. Keep trying to keep the "family" stable. Don't let Teresa throw you off. Stay reasonable.
Melissa Your babies are GEORGEOUS...Antonia looks exactly like you. Congratulations on such a beautiful family
I am dying to know where you got your robe/mask/slippers you wore Christmas morning. I've been looking for that exact out fit for 2 years now and cannot find it anywhere!!!! If anyone else knows - please tell me!!! :)
Love you and Joe! I think Theresa is never happy unless EVERYONE is dancing to her tune. Good luck, just do your best.
Your Christmas Eve outfit was adorable. I think you and Teresa are both fighting to be the most fabulous, but you need to both appreciate what you have and be comfortable with yourselves.
"I'm happy that Joe and Teresa are in a good place and can give their children everything they ask for." "A couple of weeks ago they were dining on the floor and now she has a hugh dining room table big enough for twenty people." Really? Only you know the intent you typed that with but it sounded pretty snarky to me. I think Joe fixed dinner for Teresa and they were eating on the floor by choice. Not because they didn't have a table. As for Christmas, Teresa said they had to scale down this year. Looks to me like all the children on the show did pretty well.
I don't get you in interview you say at Teresa's you and Joe didn't feel comfortable that it wasn't easy being there. But at Kathy's you said it was great and even in your blog you said everyone had a great time! So, which is it?! I still think that you are fake! Like when you were leaving Teresa's with a big fake grin on your facing telling G-IA, I hope you get everything like you knew that wasn't going to happen! I don't care I still say your fake. All those expensive gifts your husband bought you and we didn't see you give him anything! Selfish!!
You are so adorable!!! I love your kids and Joe. You're very blessed to have such a beautiful family. Embrace it! As for Teresa, I believe she has her own agenda and perhaps is very jealous of you. She contradicts everything she says and it's, quite frankly, frustrating listening to her. I'm so impressed with how you've been handling everything.
Now Melissa knows how it feels to get a taste of her own medicine. First Teresa was being nothing but nice and Melissa was relentlessly bashing her, and now Melissa is being nice, but apparently Joe's done with Melissa because of Melissa and her family's past behavior. AT LEAST HE DIDN"T CALL MELISSA "GARBAGE."
Melissa, I have to tell you that your kids are absolutely beautiful. Antonia melts my heart she is sooo adorable and you are right she is a mini version of you.
I love you more and more every episode. I have been following this show since it came on and I have always loved Teresa, but this season has really shed a new light on things. I think your'e a beautiful person on the inside and out! xoxo*
Melissa, I love love love you. Your a great mother and wife. And because of you we see the real side of Teresa. Team Melissa!
TEAM GORGA! You, Joe, Kathy and Richie have been a shot of adrenaline this show needed. Love all of you!
Melissa, I love how you take the high road. You are an inspiration to all, and some of the other housewives on other cities should take note. I hope the family troubles pass in time.
Your children are absolutely adorable. You've been blessed, thank you Jesus! You and Kathy are really great additions to this show. Looks like Theresa is taking over Danielle's role. Her personality has changed so much she just isn't likeable anymore. I'm TEAM MELISSA AND KATHY!!!!
