Melissa Gorga

Melissa shares her excitement about her single release.

on Aug 15, 20110

I am really happy with how On Display came out! It was my first, it was my baby. It will always have a special place in my heart! I wrote this song as a way to empower people. It’s not about me being a “celebrity.” It’s about being on display when you enter a new family, when you try something different, when you start a new job. You are on display and people are looking at you, waiting for you to fall, but you aren’t going to let them see you sweat. This track is meant to make you feel confident and make you want to dance! The beat on the remix is sick, and I jam to it all the time!

I’m so grateful for everything that is happening with my music, and I’m grateful that it even got this far. This is more than I ever could have ever dreamed of. I’m proud of it, and I hope you all enjoy it! Roll your windows down and sing, baby! Antonia and Gino know every word! It’s so cute! They love it. They request it in the car every time we get in. We blast it, even baby Joey bobs his head when it’s on. I love the original and the remix is just off the charts (if you ask me). Let me know what you think! 

I’m so excited to be performing at Beatstock on Saturday in Long Island! It’s going to be a long week... I just flew in Cris Judd to work with me on the choreography! I hope you all can come out and see me! Here’s the link to On Display and the Remix on iTunes.

Congrats on your song, I have to say I was surprised...you have a great voice and loved the song you wrote for your husband! Keep up the good work :)

Either there are a lot of tone deaf people watching this show, or they aren't quite being truthful about Melissa's "talent". Let's face it, she can't sing very well, and for people to encourage her, I think it's way wrong. Now she's right up there with Kim from Atlanta and the Countess from NY. None of them have any talent in the singing department. I wish people around them would be honest enough to tell them the truth. Then you have her husband building her a sound studio....geez.

Melissa..i had my doubts about you in the beginning but soon realized you are a good person. As for that sister-in-law of yours..well my opinion of her has changed and let's just say not for the better. I do hope that you all can fix whatever is going on in your lives because family is what is important

HI! Melissa! I admire your eagerness to put the family together especially the children. I don't know how to go about this, but I liked the episode where you had a fundraiser for children. I was wondering if you we could join together to raise money for my rare genetic disorder, for research. I know there is no cure. but it would be nice to know what research is out there. I am 38 and an occupational therapist assistant working with children with special needs.

Your song is actually good! I believe the other hw songs are a joke, but you do have talent! I don't understand why I can't post on your fb. I have never said anything negative on your page? I guess b/c I am a Teresa fan. Let's get something clear..America nor Bravo would give a horses a&& about you or Kathy if Teresa wasn't so popular & loved! So you should thank Teresa for that! Also, the way you & Kathy came on the show without telling her, that is messed up & makes me question your motives! I believe what Danielle said b/c she made the comment about Teresa not acknowledging her own nephew, which is something straight from your mouth! I actually like you & Kathy, but it does appear you came on the show for 1 0f 2 reasons: 1-to get a singing/cooking career going or 2-to blind-side, hurt, suprise, embarrass Teresa! I would be angry & bitter if I were her too! I will say you seem like a great Mom/wife & fun person! I don't know why you would tell Kathy what Teresa said at your house though! Sometimes its better to keep your mouth shut! You would have more fans if you didn't block them from posting for no reason! My opinion! Don't forget to say thank you to Teresa!

Please Andy, No more Melissa and Kathy! They are RUINING the show. I am not that fond of Teresa but anything is better than Melissa and Kathy.

Loved you from day 1! Still love you..even more now! Your single is amazing..the only single from a housewife i've ever bought! Nevr leave the show I don't think I'll watch anymore unless you're on it.

I think its really sweet the way you are trying to make peace with Teresa for the sake of your husband and kids. But I think you would actually prefer that they just go away so that you can have only your famliy around. You're nice to Teresa's face, but then run back and twist everything she says to make things worse when you talk to Joey and Kathy. This makes a true reconcilliation impossible and I think thats how you really want things.

The song is OK.. better than the other housewives..but nothing more than that. Enjoy the 15 min of fame..it fades fast.

It takes two (or in this case FOUR) to tango. You are all behaving badly and need to accept your part in the family squabble. Grow up.

I do not get the going back and repeating what Teresa said to Kathy thing that you do every chance you get. If you are so happy with your life, why are you spending so much time talking about Teresa? Let it go. Of course Teresa feels anger toward you, I am now thinking maybe you had something to do with her and her brother feuding. You are certainly keeping a wedge between her and Kathy. As she stated why would you both seek out a friendship with Kim G. when you knew this woman does not like her.

Just listened to your new single....WOW. Many housewives who had never had a career in singing and even though they might have made i tunes or something they suck miserably. I have an ear for great music and you blew me away. Cannot wait to hear more!!

I dont know what people are talking about. RHONJ was the top on my list of housewives but because of the witch Melissa it all has changed. She has constant digs about Teresa and expects viewers to see past it. She is not a peacemaker, but always creates a wedge between her and Teressa. She puts poison in her husbands head and is a WITCH. She cant sing. Teressa has every reason to feel the way she does. I hope at the reunion people roast her #@$! Melissa is sooo not wanted back for another season.

Right on MsMissyH! I thought I was the only one who saw that! Melissa is definately a family-wedger! Bad, bad person! Oh, and yes! She does need to stop signing!!!!!!!! AAAACK!

You have a great voice> Finally a real housewife who can actually sing. The first few shows I was leary of you,but you have proved me wrong. So sorry Teresa is showing her true colors. I feel bad for Joe and you and the children you can see she pulls the strings when it comes to her parents. Good for you for giving Joe the support he needs.

Melissa you are actually the reason I watch the show this season, you seem to show more class than your in-laws. Good luck with everything and keep your head up!

Joe Gorgo, Ritchie and Al, Sr. are the BEST husbands on any of the housewives shows, hands-down!! I wish they had a spin-off show!!

Melissa, you are so funny and add a certain "something" to the dynamic of the group. I see you trying to make peace even though on the surface it doesn't look very successful but keep trying anyway. Good luck with your music career. If somebody paid good money for Kim Zolziak's song, baby you're going to be a platinum artist in a matter of days because Lord knows you can sing rings arond her! LOL

Melissa, I am so happy for you and your new single. Congrats girly!!! You remind me so much of me! My sister in-law is so nasty to me. She goes out of her way to make the rudest comments and even posts stuff on her page (rumors) about me that are so not true! I always told myself that "Success is the greatest Revenge" I applaud you for always having a good comeback when Theresa is trying to bash you. You and your husband are so blessed with such a beautiful family. Keep Rockin Girly!!

Melissa, sorry. Sorry because at first I thought you were a spoiled, materialistic girl who liked to start trouble. BUT, after watching episode 13 and 14 I see that you really just are not going to win. With someone in the family like Teresa you have no chance. I have a sister-in-law just like Teresa...I feel your pain! For some reason people like her always feel they are right and "we" have made them behaave the way they have. Really, I get it. So sorry Melissa. Keep doing what you are doing because as long as you and your husband love each other and your children that is all that really matters. Keep that smile on and keep trying, it may not work but at least when you go to sleep at night you will know that you did the right thing.

Melissa why do you always start so much crap. You are always saying you are done but on every episode you are talking trash about Teresa. STOP OBSESSING OVER TERESA! If you are going to be the bigger person STOP talking crap about her EVERY single chance that you get. Get a life! And honestly I know you think you can sing but honestly you don't sound any better than the other housewives...sorry please accept the truth.

You were not trying to get Teresa and Kathy back together. Did Jesus tell you to talk behind her back every chance you had. Did Jesus tell you to tell Kathy what Teresa said about her husband and bring Kathy's daughter into it.

I understand why Teresa feels the way she does.

Melissa:

I like you and I didn't think I would. I also think you are a natural performer and a great pop singer. You have all you need to skyrocket to the top. Stay focused. Let Theresa work out her life and try to be supportive. However, you don't need to keep getting beaten up. You can always excuse yourself, being the lady you are, and walk away. Set the example for your children. Theresa and Joe have made a mess out of their lives and are not good examples for their kids. Do better. Kathy and Caroline know how to live their best lives. Follow their examples and you'll be happy and successful. By the way, you are blessed with really beautiful kids and a husband that would die for you. It doesn't get any better than that.

I have to say...every episode I like you better and better. You are a tough cookie but you know how to choose your battles wisely. Some people mistake that for weakness...not the case...its just the smart way. Regardless of who did what in the past...it doesn't matter. What the public is seeing now is a very catty Teresa and a very confident Melissa. Your kids are beautiful and very well behaved. As for your husband, my friend and I were arguing, she thought he was annoying...I find him to be a hilarious guy that loves to poke fun at himself. I won't say I'm team anyone but you guys just floor me...in a good way!!!

Melissa I loved loved loved the song!!!! I even loved it when you played it with the guy that played the piano!!!! I think you are a million times better than Kim from RHOA and that hopefully next time you can do a single with Khandi from RHOA.I wish you and your family all the best. Hope you do fantastic with all your hopes and dreams and your children are such cuties!!!

Just couldn't resist posting - I believe the words from your song were put together based on your life???? Do you really feel the weight of the world pushing down on you??? I believe that there are unfortunate people in this world who can tell you what that would really feel like!!!! I don't think you have a clue.

Melissa!!! I think you are SO amazing, talented and beautiful! When this season first started, I wasn't sure how it would be adding on new cast mates, nonetheless family members of Teresa. I used to really like Teresa, but I think she shows her true colors in this season - she seems very jealous, angry and unhappy. I hate how she turns everything around and makes it about her. BUT, you are truly genuine and have tried SO hard with her. Keep it up girl!! She's gotta come around eventually! SING YOUR HEART OUT!!!!!!!! :)

I am sorry, but "this was a dream as a little girl" more like this is a dream ever since I became a NJHW and have the money and TV spotlight to pull it off...I tried and listened to the song, but it is just awful in every way. Seriously, but time in something else.

Best Wishes with your music career!

I had been watching reruns today and had to laugh at the priceless visit with the kids on their play date. Hearing Gia want more of your chicken cutlets made me laugh as her mother was just bashing you for never or not knowing how to cook!! I bet it really got under Teresa's skin.

I am in no way against your sister-in-law. I just do not agree with her and especially her husbands behavior towards yourself and your sweet hubby Joe. I ado not understand her aggressive nasty behavior directed towards any of you or Kathy either. You all have been so blessed with so much and such beautiful family and children. Its a shame that she insists on keeping a wedge between you over what appears to be plain jealousy. xo

I must admit I wasn't a fan of yours when you first came on the show. However I think it is great you are taking the high road and not handling thing immaturely like Teresa and Joe (which I use to be fans of)

I wish the best of luck and success to you and your family.

When is Bravo going to give you and your sisters a spin off! It would be awesome. If you don't have sisters you don't get that bond, the love, and having a best friend on a whole new level! The good the bad and the consistent roller coaster of emotions! Congrats on your song I bet your dad is very proud of you!

Melissa, you and your husband are such loving, caring and fun people. I've seen the 2 of you take the high road w/ Teresa and her husband. I've come to realize that you're both beating your heads against a wall. I applaud the both of you. You're both clearly the best of the best. I'm astounded by their attitudes toward your efforts to embrace them. I don't think anybody can win w/ these two. They are pushing away their closest friends w/ their horrible attitudes where you and your Joe are concerned. Joe G.'s has proven himself to be the worst of the worst. God bless you and your family. I truly hope Teresa and Joe G. will come around. Everybody see's you and your husband have clearly made the effort.

You are awesome, Melissa! Rock on! Teresa needs to chill and be happy for other people. She is clearly envious of you and your relationship with Kathy.

melissa all i got to say is you are so better than me cause i would so be over the crap teresa says to you and about her cousin i so wish you would say enough is enough and unload on her cause she so needs to be put in her place and your husband should so lay hers out !lol i love all you ladies but it would be good if they just boot teresa off - don't mind all the haters you do you and keep up the music you do a good job i hope all the best for you and your familia you have a good husband and your children are to cute

This is for ama315- Just for your information, it is NOT an ACCENT- it is a "mispronunciation"!

i am all for peolpe going for their dreams.. and girl if my husband had the money, he would buld me a studio too. so blessings to you, i think sometimes no matter what race you are, we all have that family member that gets on our last nerve. And your sister in law is one of them. Just worry about your family unit you have with your husband, nothing you can do about ignorance. Your husband is so cool and supportive, loving the way you guys raise the kids and take charge of your lifes and dont worry with the rest..

I think you've been a wonderful addition to the Jersey housewives. I also see you as very sincere. Teresa has changed from her first season. She didn't seem so snooty. I know they have financial issues but she just seems kind of mean and insincere. I think it's wonderful how you have been trying to make the relationship work for your husband. You look like a great couple and family. Your kids are absolutely gorgeous!

Hey Melissa, I love your style and personality. You are truly a beautiful woman, mother and wife. It saddens me though the continued bickering with Teresa. Life is too short to harbor such bitterness. Forgiveness is the biggest blessing to mankind from God! Here's hoping Teresa will find it in her heart to do the same. Toodles and take care! Keep up the good work!

Melissa your family is beautiful! I also wanted to say you are very smart, beautiful and extremely talented young woman. Your heart is in the right place and that the way Joe and you support each other is wonderful to see. I hope you stay the same and not change, and that your marriage doesn't suffer because of the show. Theresa was one of my favorite girls but lately she is just so stubborn and so harsh, I know they have been through a lot, but she just doesn't want to hear what I know is in her heart. Wish you all the luck and patience in the world, the kids truly want to be with their cousins. Best of everything for all of your family.

I dno't like the song, and I don't like you, mind your own business, let Teresa and Kathy work it out for themselves. And you certainly can't stand Teresa, you bash her at every turn, especially with you wonderful?????sisters! If you have a degree in education I'd really be shocked.

divadarlene73

I really like you,but Teresa is not worth it. She is so jealous of you it shows it big time. Teresa has so many issues,stop trying to reach out to her, she thinks that the world revolves around her.

Melissa equals drama!! all she does is gossip about Teresa! tired of it! the song is not good! if it was always your dream to be a singer, why not audition for american idol, or americas got talent! ther are a tons of ways you can become a singer these days. but you chose RHWONJ! ITS SO SAD TO SEE YOUR HUSBANDS FAMILY BEING THROWN UNDER A BUS FOR YOUR OWN SELFISH NEEDS!!:(

Lady you are really thirsty,if i was Teresa i wouldn't evan be in the same room with you you a very manipulative person,your a lier, that's not of god,good thing you reap what you sow,cause sooner or later you will.
