Melissa Gorga

Melissa has had enough fighting and is hoping for some good times.

on Sep 20, 20110

I really had a great time bonding with the Manzos and Lauritas, they are both great families! They are very down to earth, easy going, straight forward people. That's what I look for in friends and in couples that Joe and I like to spend time with. It just makes life so much easier when you are with people who are like that. Poor Caroline had a booming migraine. I felt so bad for her, she missed a beautiful boat ride with her family. The kids kept mentioning how they felt bad that she missed it. It was sweet to see them thinking of their mother the whole day. 

How can you not love Greg? He is so funny, the things he comes out with are not planned, they just roll right off his tongue. He is harmless and he makes me laugh. We enjoy a lot of the same things, we just get along really well. He might be the only person I know who loves music more than I do! He's hilarious and he's a great friend to the Manzo family. Everyone loves when Greg is around! I enjoy people that love life and just want to have a good time.

I love the House Wives of New Jersy, but I haven't seen them regularly. I have been watching Bravo, but through out the day. Now I know when I can see them. Yay.

Melissa you have the most wonderful voice i have every heard in my life .i watch all of the seasons of housewives of new jersey.i dont like you and your family fighting and hurting each others feelings.someday you all will say to yourself where did all my family go.they went away because you all fought in the past and wanted nothing to do with you because they would not want to go through so much bull shit that all happened in the past so be thankful for who you have even if you are enemies.you also have wonderful children as well

OMG Melissa so sorry....Theresa!!! Is there a pre requisite for education on HW of NJ? At least a GED or some college credits. Did she ever get left back in school? Holy Shit. In addition she is gonna end up a fat hairy housewife from the hills in Italy. Melissa is 10x tter looking then her.

Melissa and Joe, I love you guys! Keep up the positive energy:)))

Now for all you miserable, low lives, negative energy, dry hating people, why even get on here with all that negativity. I know you are entitle to your opinions, but it's just that, opinions! Who the heck cares. You all sound like you got too much time on your hands anyway. Negative loves negative, so go on Teresa's blog with that negativity, I'm sure she can connect with you (no offense, Melissa & Joe)!!! It is what it is, so bloggers, find something better to do with your time!!! Love, not Hate

Have to give it to you - you did a great job in singing. I think what turns most people off on you is that you seemingly constantly instigate trouble. It's like you get off stirring the trouble pot - why? You have a loving husband and 3 beautiful children - you're not hurting for money - so why are you always bashing Teresa. If you don't want to be in her company, don't be. It would seem to most that if you love your husband that much you'd bend a little and get along with all the members of his family. But, instead you constantly attack and belittle Teresa - it's pathetic. You can't pull off the victim crap any longer - your true colors how brillantly.

I have to say, it took nerve to go up on stage and do what you did and you performed beautifully! Loved the performance. Congratulations! At first, I judged you based on Teresas comments, but now I see that she was so wrong about you. You and your husband just make me laugh all the time, because that's how I am with mine. It makes for such a happy home. Keep up the good work by staying out of the nasty drama!

MELISSA, I am not a fan of yours. I dont understand why you had to go over to Kathy after her argument with Teresa and stick your nose in it. Your husband had the right idea,, stay out of it and dont say a word. You need to stop instigating and if you cant be right in the middle, dont be the third wheel. I do believe that you and Kathy came on the show to start crap for Teresa but its getting old and viewers are not watching. I think all three of you ladies need some serious therapy. Also, why do you and your husband think we want to know about your sex life. I dont want to know how many times a night Joe tries to have sex with you or if you do i t in the shower, nor do I want to see his stuff, why does he ALWAYS try to pull out his junk. I think he is sick, he and Teresa talk about this stuff way too much. Makes a person wonder what went on in their home when they were kids. You all need to learn how to keep stuff private, your junk (private parts)and marriage bed should not be on TV.

You could tell that you weren't even singing. Anyone can lip sync. That doesn't make you a singer. Your song is nice but its fully autotuned. It just proves even more that anyone with money can be a singer.

I love the addition of Melissa and Joe to the show. They have good hearts and I wish them well. I wish Teresa would take the high road. Her attitude and self absorbtion is making her less and less likeable. Wake up Teresa! Your relationship with your brother will never get to where you want it the way you constantly disrespect Melissa.

Hi Melissa: I thought you did a fabulous job singing last night! I also know that over time, you will become very successful at it. But, please DO NOT FOCUS on the HATERS. Some are jealous and are supporters of Teresa. I also am so happy that you and Joey are on the show. You both are a wonderful couple and a great addition to the show. You both are good parents as well. When will your CD come out. Thanks.

You can sing and dance. I was pleasantly surprised. Even Juicy Joe had a few tears in his eyes for his sister in lawe . Dont listen to the negativity. If I didnt think your performance was good. I wouldnt say it was good. Out of all the singer housewives. You can actually sing. Dont listen to the haters. YOU CAN SING.You looked amazing.

Your husband is an exhibitionist!!!! I really don't care to see his bare butt and most certainly don't want to see his "front"!!! Get him to counseling!

Wow, you are either a love her or leave her kind of girl. Joe could be a real sweetheart IF he would take advantage of some of the viewer advice and keep the sexual things OFF camera. We get it. I still don't believe you about wanting the family to get together. You say one thing, then go running for the spoon to stir the pot. Come on, you could be an asset to the show IF you stop being so darned two faced and keep your sexual exploits to your own bedroom - NOT my living room! Thanks!

I think you did a great job singing. Don't let Jay Mohr or the haters bring you down.

P.S.: Please tell your husband to keep his pants on at least while the cameras are rolling!!

Really enjoyed watching and your husband on the show this season. Loved your perfomance last night... you rock girl.. Can't believe how jealous Theresa is of you, she is a very mean and unkind person, be careful of her.

You were fabulous last night as usual! You are young, gorgeous, kind, smart, talented, have a great family so just keep thanking God & Jesus for all and ignore all the haters. Like many others, I tune in to RHONJ because of you. Bravo next season make sure to film MORE of Melissa and less of Teresa as I am tired of watching Teresa argue with everyone. Thank you.

Hi Melissa ! Last night's episode was intresting. You rocked your performance! But it is getting pretty obvious that Teresa holds some jeloucy against you . She looked so fazed in the audience compared to everyone who was clapping and cheering you on! Your one of the most authentic housewives on the show ! - team melissa all the way !! ♥

So Sad!
So Sad!

Please leave the show if all you are going to do is cause trouble and drama for Teresa! It is sad to watch you trash her ever chance you get! Seriously not a pleasure to watch!

Unlike most of these comments I liked you from the beginning and more so as the show went on. I see how you are genuinely are trying to make peace with Teresa and I like that about you.. Don't change that EVER!

I also think you and your husband are so cute and funny, I like that you don't take each other to seriously. Both of you seem happy.

PS Good luck with your singing career, I think you'll do great!

Melissa I watched your performance and I have to say I didnt hear you sing! It was voiced over and you could tell! I hope you are serious about this singing career because it doesn't seem to me that you are really interested in putting any real work in... When you were told to keep singing so audio could be right you didn't want to indulge in it too much. A professional will keep singing & singing & singing until it gets right you are a newbie at this and you need to listen to the experts and do whatever they tell you to do for a good performance. You have to remember others people have they name on the line and you should give them respect in that they are there to help you become who you say you want to be which is a singer. I will be keeping an eye out for your progress and I wish you luck otherwise I see another 1 hit wonder celebrity!

i just watched the show tonight. u looked like u were lip syncing. and ur facial expressions wasnt all that great either. u looked mean. *lol*...nothing wrong with putting on a performance but u were over doing it. and besides that, i dont think ur all that great of a singer.

and if u were so religious, why do u have to make a contest out of everything with teresa?? dont get me wrong, teresa is the same way towards u. but u should be the bigger person and act like a GROWN UP!!!

Melissa, I have to say... I was apprehensive about you, yes bc at one point I thought your sister in law was so funny, to the point, and a good person.... But wow, was I wrong. I absoultly love you and your husband! I think you both know whats up! Your sister in law is so jealous of you! By no means do I think you have been a Saint in this situation, but the more and more we all watch and read, the more clear it is. You are totally comfortable in your life, and she can't handle it. As for people who say your sisters are causing problems.. Look, sisters are meant to vent to, they support you, and most times they have the same opinion as you do... Why wouldn't you talk to them! Anyway, you and Joe have moved up to the top of my list (right behing Caroline's family... they just make me smile and laugh) I think as sad as it may be for the kids, that you need to stay away from the posion that is your sister and brother in law..... Their sh*#ty karma, and horrid way of treating people is why they are where they are!

Hi Melissa......... I just wanted to say how awesome you and Joe are! He is absolutely hilarious and I love how "normal" you guys are. I have never enjoyed TRHONJ so much! P.S I agree The Manzos are an amazing family! :) Love and blessings from Australia xo

Melissa I don't think your past matters very much but on each show you are always alone with your husband and where are your children? You are a young ladie but really dress like a lady and a mother. Hanging out with single people drinking is not becoming of a women with small children. You can buy your kids all the things the world can offer but you can't buy back the time you don't give them. Before you know it they will be grown up.

Ditch Kathy and become the woman that you are trying so hard to be. You are the complete package, I am cheering you on!! Stop making the little jabs regarding Teresa "off camera" and be the peacemaker that you are when you are talking to Joe. Authenticity goes a long way, and I truly believe you have a good spirit, but have been misguided by some insecurities and bad examples (Kathy). Kathy's agenda is to keep you and Teresa apart...where would she be if the two of your were friends AND family? Do the right thing regardless of the situation. You've got this!!

Hold your head UP high. You have nothing to be ashamed of from your past. You have a wonderful marriage and are a young woman with a bright future and wonderful family. Do NOT let this show ruin your life, it is NOT worth it.

melissa- I have always watched the RHNJ from the beginning and never have posted before but I wanted to let you know how after every show, I begin to like you so much more. I am sorry to say, but at the beginning i was always team teresa (loved her the last few seasons and still do) and didnt like u and cathy. But now, I am taking back my words and think you have tried to take the high road. You and Joe and SOO FUNNY and you are a great mom/aunt. I hope all the family issues go away and continue to remember that you have be work it out for the kids to have a healthy relationship!! God Bless and good luck with everything!!

Hi Mellisa, hope everything is going good for you and the rest of the Housewives. On one your episodes you mention how you had open Heart surgery and how you were the second female to have it. Well I don't think that's correct. My daughter had the same surgery when she was 4 yrs old and happy to say she is 31yrs old today. So 26 yrs ago she was not the first to have this surgery under her arm pit going towards her back. It was done in NYU Hospital in Manhattan.

Kudos to you and your adorable husband for turning the other cheek SO MANY TIMES where Teresa and her husband are involved. There are times when I don't know HOW you've done it but you have. What class! Teresa needs to STOP trying to compete with you - she can't. Although she is a beautiful woman and her children are absolutely gorgeous, she needs to realize there are a number of years difference in your age and hers and accept it. For her age and the number of children she has had she looks incredible - I'm not taking anything away from her at all. And you are gorgeous and have taken very good care of yourself after having your babies. I wish you HUGE success with your singing career.

"FaiyhNLove" just summed it up for me and all of my friends who watch this show as a guilty pleasure, all the while protecting and loving our families (even if we don't particularrly aways get along with our sister-in-law), not sabotaging them. I would never do what you two (M&K) did to Teresa and her, yes her show. Thanks FaithnLove, you summed up all of our feelings beautifully, especially the last part!!!!!!!

You are so cute. I didn't like you at first, but I do now. I think you and your hubby are the cutest things together. I can see both of you on your own show, showing couples how to keep their marriage spicy, fun and interesting. Good luck on your singing career.

You claim to want to make peace between the two families yet you continually talk trash about Teresa and run to Kathy with drama, as long as you continue to do this there will never be peace. You need to honest with Teresa and tell her that you are on Kathy's side. Teresa has her faults too, but you play the victim, as if you are innocent in this whole mess and that is clearly not the case. I hope you're not on the show next season. I am over you and your drama.

I wish you and your husband would leave Teresa alone! I'm so sick of you causing problems for her. You and the rest of the castmates are huge bullies. Get a life and stop picking on Teresa. It's sickening

As a viewer, the sexual references (most of which are crude and nasty), the constantly flowing testostrone, caps - hats - and bandanas are getting very old. Please tell your Joe that a gentleman never wears a hat at the dinner table - ops - not a gentleman.

What is going on with your husband's twitter? It's a firestorm of negative retweets about Teresa and positive RTs about you and him. What happened and how do so many random twitter people who are all likely not involved in current filming know inside information? This show is bordering on disaster- everyone seems incredibly fake but the public wants some genuine transparency. Jac seems to be ready to jump ship- her recent tweets and last missing blog indicate she wants to leave. Who are the "shitty lowlife people" she is referring to in her tweets? In any case, I'm very curious to see the reunion now even though the cowardly Lion Jac tweets she will not attend.

Melissa just want to say that you and Joe are just the cutest and funniest couple on the show! I really love it when Joe expresses his feelings towards you. This is the definition of a true "REALITY" show !

I was reading your blog and going over on some of the comments like for real lol! You are going to make it to the top i can just see it and see you just picture it for real! Teresa is not on my top 5 nor on my top 10 no more she has alot of hate and negativity. Sure she is doing good in life with her books and the pizzeria but when it comes to family she shouldnt be like that or act like this at all. All you other housewives are totally of da hook ossum for real! And greg omg he is so funny and very cute lol! I like you and and your hubby like alot. and kathy and richie to . and jacqueline with her husband. and lauren with vito they make a cute item. and caroline with albert to. god bless!

I cannot imagine what Melissa or Kathy could do that would change my opinion of them. They came on the show to stir trouble with Teresa...their own kin. My opinion of them was decided right there. Almost everything I've seen since has supported my opinion. Snakes in the grass...the two of them. If they would see a gain on stepping on their fans...or Bravo...they would do it in a heart beat. So...you won't see me signing up for their fan club any time soon.

One other thing...consider how "class-less" one must be to choose to take this road...with only the hope that it will lead to fame and fortune. Uggggh!

You Melissa, will never shoot to stardom and only be fodder for cable jokes re: middle age reality stars for one reason. Your intent. Teresa came on the show not knowing what the heck she was in for. The initial group signed up for the unknown. You watched Teresa get stardom, celebrity status, a career that took off (cook books), and most of all paparazzi following her. You deserved fame and paparazzi more than HER and you were getting on no matter what. You took a storyline that exposed your HUSBAND’S (not yours) immediate family, crushing all involved. They will Never forget that, and of course they are ON to you. We all are now. Teresa, her brother and parents will never be the same, ever.Even if at the moment you are getting along months after the taping took place. Short lived. WHO could forget the mean things said and the cruel means by which you put her (or tried) in a horrible light and tried to turn her fans, friends and family against her. It must KILL you that the plan didn’t work. Why oh why is everyone still Teresa fans? I look hot and this manipulation things has always worked on my husband and was working on the viewers.—The problem Melissa is, you can only fool everyone for so long. We have seen through it and you’re essence has exposed you into the “real” light. We all heard your call to her at Jac’s when you thought we couldn’t hear you screaming and puleaase, your ‘On Display’ song was written before you even had that “fake” scene birthing the idea with Joe to be a singer. Like you had never thought of it before. Please don’t insult us. It’s there on tape, did you rehearse those lines before you sang Amazing Grace? What me, sing? Uhg. Teresa has never staged a scene. Her grocery trips and home life alone should show you that. She’s real and decent and we love HER Melissa. Time Wounds All Heels and it’s your time. Teresa was ambushed by her own family and her brother is so snowed by you I feel sorry for him the most. You must spend a lot of time getting your stories straight and following the blogs to see who everyone thinks you should blame next. You are a one hit wonder (if it was a hit), you’re done because you went about it cruelly and no regard for everyone you hurt. You wouldn’t be scouring these blogs and be so unhappy in this newfound (however short lived) fame if you didn’t know deep inside I’m dead on. We ALL know it. For some reason, these blogs never get posted, only the negative ones re: Kathy and everyone I know wishes you hadn’t manipulated yourself on RHONJ and none of their blogs get published. It’s a running joke. I’m sure this one will only see the cutting room, Celebrity G floor. I hope one song was worth it, You hurt many lives (for now) but your career forever. Karma…..

Dear Melissa,

I agree with Patra down below ....If you really want things to work out with Teresa and Joe be for real. Don't act like you care and want things to work if you your gonna run to Kathy side all t he time and abandon Teresa. After all you wouldn't even be on this show if it wasn't for her!!! Your pretty and you sing good but your not any better than anyone else on the show so quit acting like your hands are so clean and your so innocent. Stay real and things will work out. Teresa isn't upset at Kathy for nothing and in case you didn't watchh that episode let me inform you....Teresa was not the only one that left her kids unattended!!!!! So yes I would be upset with Kathys bullshit always saying "Teresa left her kids unattended" but so gracefully forgot about how you left yours unattended too!! God Bless and I hope you take this as constructive critisism and not as anything else. I just think you need to be told what is really going on instead of what you think is going on.

Till next time = )

I too thought of you as a horrible mean person but you truly are a nice and forgiving person!! Theresa is the one who is jealous of you and all that you have and she is the cause of all the family problems and downs!! I hope you guys have more ups and may you have good things coming to you next month!! I love fall and I love the month of October!!
