First I want to send my prayers and thoughts to all the families that are devastated by 9/11. I can’t even begin to comprehend how difficult these past ten years have been, but it’s incredible to see how united everyone is and it really puts things into perspective on how precious life really is.
We were all away during the last episode so I didn’t get a chance to blog. I can’t believe how much damage Hurricane Irene created throughout New Jersey and the east coast. Roads are still closed in my town. I hope that everyone’s friends and family are safe.
I’m going to touch on the previous episode briefly because much of what happens in this episode between Joe Giudice and my husband stems from that episode. You have to understand that the problem that exists between our families is deep, and we still haven’t been able to get past it or agree on what the problem actually is. Teresa and I will always support our husbands and they will support their wives. When there is tension between any of us, it tends to build up and boil over like you’ve seen over the entire season. What I hope you understand is that this has been happening for years, way before the Housewives. The tension between the Joes has been around before I entered the picture, but I guess it’s easier for Teresa to point the finger at me because she doesn’t want to blame her husband or her only brother, which I can understand.
8 pages really. Don't think I will read it. But I wanted to post to say,, I hope you are standing my your husband and allowing his relationship with his family to blossoms.
Yeah, Melissa, I get chills too every time I hear you sing.....but for a different reason.....it's more like the chills I get from hearing fingernails scraping across a chalkboard!
melissa good blog i pray and hope that joe gorga and teresea do make up for good and stop all the nonsense going on with her husband joe.she needs to stop rehashing the past cause then what good is that going to do for anyone i just tell you to keep going strong confident and reaching for the stars cause ur song is good i like it,sounds really catchy love ya lots and i wish nothing but the best for u and for ur family
I just try so hard to like you, but afraid it just ain't happenin' Your nasty comments about Tre to her brother are no better than Tre's husbands comments to her about the two of you. And by the way, I'm not a big Teresa fan anymore. Just grow up! All of you! Kathy and Caroline are my fav's. Take some lesson's from them. They act like grown-ups.
Melissa, I totally get why you get defensive with Teresa.. it is her tone that gets you.. I don't like Teresa's tone and how stubborn she is..
Melissa, I'm sure Gia's song DID break your heart. It broke mine and made me cry. It IS a wake up call for changes to be made, but you're a fool if you think it's calling everyone BUT you and your husband.
Missed you last week. Great blog. You have the best perspective and handle tough situations with class and maturity.
Keep it up! xoxo
Well said Melissa and don't forget he also used the "F" word to describe Joe. Waiting to hear someone address that as well.
Please, please, please stop making excuses for bad behavior YOUR Joe was wrong at the book signing it was deplorable and you did not make it any easier Melissa YOU STIR THE POT ALOT...and AGAIN YOUR Joe started the argument that escalarted into a a free for all fist fight at YOUR Christening!
I love your blog this week. There is no negative there. I realy hope you and Joe can work things out with Theresa and her husband. If you guys cant see through Gias eyes the hurt that she is going through, then I do think you guys (You, Joe, Theresa, And Her husband) are selfish people who need to grow up. That seen made me CRY.
I just love you guys. You can tell how much you all love each other through good a and bad. Your kids playing together is my favorite, I just cant help but smile:)
I am willing to say that Teresa probably got into alot of fights in high school. I will be very shocked if I am wrong therefore, she continues the pattern of ME MYSELF AND I. Just an observation.
Great blog Melissa. I love the addition of you on the show. You are my new favorite housewife. Your husband seems like a fun funny guy too. All the best to your beautiful family
Watching you and Joe makes me laugh and smile, you seem to be such a fun couple. He really adores and respects you. I know it is hard but try to have a little empathy for Teressa. She hasn't been blessed with an honorable husband like you. Women in verbally and emotionally abusive relationships deserve some empathy even when they are lashes out at others.
I love you and your family Melissa, just know that hurt people hurt people. Theresa and her husband need to grow up.
I agree u r a pot stirrer. U certainly don't help things when u go running to Kathy telling her ur version of what Tre has said.
My name is Melissa too (great name), I have a an-unrelated Q. Where did you get your leopard animal hat from?!?!?!!?!? I've been looking ALL over the internet.. I loved it!!!
Love you! You are beautiful and fun. You and your husband bring more lightheartedness to the show and it was definitely needed. All the best to you and your family!
Melissa, Joey was wrong with the text messages, he did start the name calling and at the Christening he was the one who took the swing. Both Joes are in the wrong. Joey should never have put it off on Teresa regarding the text messages. But, you need to quit stirring the pot, you need to stop talking about the Guidices behind their backs. Kathy as well needs to stop. You say that you want it to end for the children, lets see if you can actually do that although I dont believe that it will happen, you like the conflict too much. Last year Teresa was high strung but it was nothing like this. Be the bigger person and stop the cycle. Let Joey and Teresa have a relationship without you in it, let them be brother and sister.
BTW!! CALL RITCHIE OUT FOR CALLING JOE GUIDICE A GAY SLUR IN SPANISH. YEAH , DON'T HIDE THAT OUTSIDE THE PIZZA PLACE WHEN HE WAS JOEY GORGA
Love you, Melissa and I think you're just beautiful, body and soul. Your husband cracks me up; I love him and think your children are beautiful. Thank God you daughter hasn't picked up any of Milania's horrible, horrible traits. I'm not much of a fan of that type of music, but I love your song.
The one I feel sorriest for in all of this are the kids. Gia's heartbreak was so strong, you could feel it through the television. I have to admit that at the beginning of the season, I wasn't sure what to make of you, but as time goes by, you are being vindicated because you ARE trying to extend that olive branch over and over, and it appears that Teresa is the one having problems with just about everyone. Good luck, chica; it's tough being the one in the middle of family situations.
Don't listen to all these haters. I for one think you are the best singer of all the housewives.
If the problems between the families were so deep WHY WHY WHY would you come on the show in the first place!!! Your were not thinking about healing this family when you signed up. You and Kathy started this mess on the show so fix it even if it means biting your tongue when you don't want to!
Can you only see fault in Teresa and her husband ? Your sweet Joey is just as bad and along with Kathy wow ..gossip gossip .
I have had family problems just like everyone else, but what I do I ignore the mess. I have a family that is a lot bigger than yours, but it is only one person, my sister who seems to hate me. At the age of 40 I had my second child. My first child was 14 years old and was born with Down's Syndrome. I was a single mother (I am not bragging about being single). God gave me this beautiful gift and I love her so much. I got married, not to her father when she was 7 years old. I wanted to have another child after 8 miscarriages I had my last child who was born without complications, but I got sick. I found out that I had brain tumors for at least 9 years. I had surgery twice on my head and broke my back because of the amount of sterroids. My sister hates me, but I prayed for me not my sister and I am convinced that I have done nothing to her. After I got sick my husband left me and he brought up that my sister had said bad things about me, but I did not worry because I was convinced that if I stayed on the Lord's side he would fight my battles. Life has not be easy and my sister call my children names, but I keep them away from her. I have no strength to kick her butt. It really hurts and I hope that the whole family reads this email, because after coming out of recovery of my brain surgery, I died. Please make up and don't be sad like I am. It hurts
What is up with your husband telling Gregg to grope you?? The papers reported that you and Joey were swingers and that is part of the problem with the Guidices?? I didn't believe it, but now he tells another man to grope you, its o.k. What's up with that?
I love how Antonia and Milania seem to be so close. They're cousins, it should be nothing but closeness between them anyway.
Theresa is crying out for her brother to just push past all the barriers that she, her husband and even you have put up and wrap those sensitive, loving arms around her. Her actions as portrayed in the show this season have been horrible, but she is HURTING! Her life is imploding all around her and she is scrappily trying to survive it all. She is pretending things are happy - it is a front. You can read on her face how completely misearble she is. If someone just gave her permission to be weak she would fall apart and accept comfort. Her brother is probably the only person who can do that. You need to make it happen because he will always hold back unless you give him permission to share his strength with her.
PLEASE POST, BRAVO...
Am I the only who's noticed (since episode #1) that Melissa is a fake? She smirks when she brainwashed Joey Gorga into believing that Teresa is in the wrong! She seems evil, or at least trying to take Teresa away from her only brother. Not to mention, she DOES stir the pot to make Joey react the way he does and think what he does of his only sister. What a shame. I sure hope that her ONLY daughter is not turned away from one of her brothers, or both, when they get married. Remember this, Melissa. What a shame.
Team Tre all the way!
MELISSA HAS SHOWN GRACE AND CLASS AND IS THE ONE WHOSE TRIED TO BRING HER HUSBAND AND HIS SISTER BACK TOGETHER! ON THE OTHER HAND, TERESAS HUSBAND IS THE ONE COMING BETWEEN THEM DUE TO HIS JEALOUSY OF HIS BROTHER IN LAWS SUCCESS AND WONT OWE UP TO HIS OWN FAILURES! I THOUGHT THE ITALIANS PUT FAMILY FIRST? SO TERESA IS GOING TO LET THIS LITTLE PUNK OF A HUSBAND KEEP HER AND HER BROTHER APART? WHAT A DISFUNCTIONAL FAMILY THEY ARE!
Melissa, you are not fooling a lot of people and you must know that by now. I am not saying I dislike you, but if you think that the Manzo's magically just starting hating Teresa when she never said a bad word about them then you're wrong. That new best girlfriend of yours, Greg, is a nasty piece of work and all because you talk badly about Teresa to him. We don't need to see it on screen we are intelligent enough to read through the lines and put the puzzle pieces together.
You're also jealous of Gia, STOP IT, she's a little girl with a very smart head on her shoulders. She's hurting, you know it and you trying to say that you're going to stop now because you finally see how it affects Gia but you throw a dig at her mother for watching it all that time and not doing anything about it? Girlfriend PLEASE! This is what Teresa's been doing all along, but apparently YOU needed to see it with your own eyes.
PS, don't ever mention Teresa being late again, you and Joey are constantly late and you have an over abundance of help!
Melissa, I agree that you and Joey are a fun, loud, crazy couple with loads of money and cute kids. That doesn't mean you're NOT two-faced, back stabbing pot stirrers, though.
I cannot even read your blogs because you and they are so annoying. I saw you blasting Jay Mohr on Twitter, saying that he takes money out of peoples' mouths? First of all, why do you have money in your mouth and I'm pretty sure no one would go near that. It's nothing like you saying that Bravo should take his blog off or like you bashing your sister-in-law, right? That's not wrong but Jay Mohr, who is a COMEDIAN is wrong? Then you try to say it's a "joke" newsflash, a joke is something that is funny, you are not funny. You are fake and annoying and the fact that not many people like you should be a warning sign that you you need to change; don't blame it on editing, don't blame Jay Mohr or the viewers. If everyone else has a problem with you then YOU'RE THE PROBLEM. You have a beautiful family, an amazing husband, you say yourself that you have a life most girls dream of, so instead of acting like a witch and knit-picking other people, rise above and learn to be gracious and forgiving and kind. Go work at a soup kitchen for a day or take a ride through Camden, NJ and be thankful for what you have. It really makes the people of the world who are suffering and less fortunate SICK to see people like you always complaining when you have so much. AND PS - everyone noticed when you said to Joey "not at the birthday" when your niece said she wrote a song for her mom and brother. What a nasty person you are, God forbid the attention is not on you.
Melissa, why does it take you 8 pages to defend Joey and yourself. If you two really were as "innocent" as you claim you are...you wouldn't have to say anything at all... it would be obvious.
Melissa, good luck with everything... I hope all works out to bring your family together. You seem like you are trying to keep them together... I love watching you and Joey interact... Glad your on the show... I hope Teresa and Joey can reconcile; life is too short!
Melissa, there should not have been a dry eye in that room during Gia song....but the only person I saw with tears was Caroline husband and only him...Please rewrite your blog to state the correct facts. No it did not touch you... because if it did, You would have been all choked up like Caroline husband! And you were not shedding any tears!
You're awful , especially wanting Jay Mohr to bash Teresa in his blog you do it enough in your blogs . Thank goodness your sisters are no longer in the episodes seeing them fist pump last episode was enough and you call yourselves the next Kardashians... Woof a little dried up if you ask me .
Melissa, I am all about you this season! Seriously you are my new favorite housewife. I think you r making the right steps in moving forward with your family. All you can do is try to make the best out of these situations with Teressa and Joe, it sucks but in the long run you are making it better for those gorgeous kids of yours. Love you and your family and your song! God Bless
