What you will see if you pay attention is that Teresa is trying to take me down every chance she gets. She is attacking my character, my marriage, my looks. What she is claiming is happening to her is quite the opposite. There goes that projection again. Thankfully most of you can see that, and all we can do is pray for her and hope she opens her eyes and takes a look at what’s really important.
During this episode, I see my husband Joe doing nothing but putting his two feet forward and also trying to move on with his sister. He is trying his hardest to convince her that they need to do something to fix it. Everyone is trying to move on from the past. It’s funny how Teresa says to Jacqueline at the wedding that therapy brings up the past and she doesn’t want to bring up the past, she wants to start fresh. Well then please do it, Teresa! It’s time to move on. I also noticed she said to Jacqueline that she won’t go against her husband. Her exact words were, “It’s not going to happen.” Well then why do you get on your brother for siding with his wife? Everything is OK for Teresa, but not for anyone else. I wish I could let her know that constantly lying to try to convince everyone that I’m a bad person is only going to give her temporary satisfaction. In the long run actions speak louder than words or written words that someone else writes for you. I am trying to move on, but quite honestly she is making it impossible.
I would really like to hear your voice without all the noise. Or is it there to hide your real voice. I couldn't understand the words to your newest song but it was peppy. I truly think that Theresa is very jealous of you. I think she thinks because she's Joe's sister she should come first. What a shame. You and Joe just keep loving one another.
I guess your blog is not a lie if YOU believe it. Too bad most of us can see right through you!
PS - If you party like that in front of your kids good luck when they are teenagers.......
Also, did you read Teresa's blog? Hope that explains enough of that tabloid business for you, not that you didn't already get it and are just playing it up for us now.
Just admit that you were only asked to be a castmember of the show because you didn't get along with Teresa.
@pgh housewife Um she did. At the piano with her producers there before the studio Joe built in the house. And she sounded BANGING!
To borrow a phrase from Tamra Barney RHOC .... 'You can't argue with stupid!' You need to get over yourself. And fast!!
Love you Melissa!! This is your first "real" season please please don't turn into a fake biatch like Teresa!
Excellent blog Melissa. Glad you're standing up for yourself. You have a beautiful family and love you on the show!
Blah Blah Blah. Another whole blog about Teresa. Don't you have anything else going on in your life to talk about?
Melissa, all I can say is... happiness is the best revenge! Keep moving on and you and your family have fun!
Mel, You are blessed, dont let Tre get to you, she aint worth your time you have a wonderful family, and I do love you new song Best wishes Lixxie from Whittier CA
Melissa Rock on Rockstar, I love you and your family. Theres no denying that you and Joey and your kids are very happy, you can see it on your faces. Teresa is getting out of hand, I just can't stand her. Theres not one thing that I can say I like about her. I think that for me all the bad replaces any good she may have. Her vile husband is beyond sickening, he acts like he's drunk a lot and that's scary to me for their children. I agree with everything you said about her you hit the nail on the head. She absolutely hates you, thats what I see Melissa and I do hate saying that because you are a very nice person. I just don't understand, Caroline said it best your a younger better person than she is and that's her problem, the jealousy that she has for you is different, it's alittle scary because she does try to take you down. I've heard some details about what happened the night before the reunion that was so so bad if what I heard is true ! I guess will see when the fashion show happens. If what I heard happened then she sunk to a new low, to do what she did to you, there would be no forgiveness from me, it was just to much it was so low its hard to believe that she would really actually do it, thats what I told myself then but NOW she's very capable of doing something like that, with her side kick Kim D. of all people. This is just a reason why I think her jealousy is different, its getting so dark. I believe that she is just as bad as that nasty husband of hers with that foul mouth on him, he makes my skin crawl. She actually renews her vows with him. I think thats crazy I guess she likes being told to shut up and told that he'll leave her. I'd be holding the door open for him myself, I damn sure wouldn't be renewing anything with him. But see this is why I think she can be as nasty as him. My husband of 27 years would never speak to me like that, it;s not normal. She must like it, maybe you all should tell her to shut up once in a while and maybe the chip that could be in her brain will zap her to a happy place, just kidding. I can't help it I really dislike her very very much. Did you and Joe fall out of your chairs when she said that she was fine and didn't need the therapy, it's her opinion that Joey is having issues with you! LOL, I just had no words when she said that really I was speechless. I thought to myself that at that moment in time she was a crazy person that needs serious help and I'm being very serious. Of course her husband doesn't want her to go and try to get help, he's half of the freaking problem. The other half is that dark Jealousy she has for you as well as the hate, once again sorry to say hate but I'm being honest in what I see. One of the things that I hate most about her is that I never see her giving your kids any attention at all, she maybe says hi to them and thats all I see, down at the shore she told your daughter that she loved her at the beach, it sounded insincere but she did say it and told her not to forget it as if she was about to leave the country. Hopefully her and her husband does not take off like Bonnie and Clyde maybe they found that money tree at last. I'm just kidding sorry. And of course her come back responce to your brother when he mentions it is your wife she doesn't have anything to do with my kids, the camera turns to you and your picking her daughter up. That was lousy timeing for her to have made that remark which I know was a bunch of BS. Now the gifts that you give those children that they throw away makes me so sick, words can't describe how angry that makes me. More so there's children in the world that has nothing seriously nothing and they do this, it's so wrong in so many ways. I always wanted to know if the girls knew about the gifts that they threw away? What a waste. I always wondered what Joe actually use to do for a living I know she went to a office to see him season 1. I think he was in the flipping homes business construction something like that I don't remember. He's now a drinking housewife or househusband I suppose you could say, Here's the thing, When I hear him speak like he does I don't see a educated person there, so its very shocking to me that they even were able to pull off rebuilding a home seriously, I say that because of how he speaks it's not from a mouth of a person that is educated that you would expect, In other words he doesn't go with the home or the trips hopefully you know what I'm talking about. That mouth of his is dispicable.. One day he may just say something to the wrong person and those little short fat legs won't be much help, no matter how bad ass Teresa makes him sound. And for the record when you all went on vacation last year wasnt it determined that your husband was a bit taller? It doesnt mean anything its just Joe always refers to your husband as short, he is as short. Caroline said in a talking head interview that you and Joe may have to not try to have a relationship with Teresa and Joe for your stability. I have to agree with her because they both have issues and the two of them together can easily set the other off. I'm sure that its a very very hurtful thing to your brother and I know that you hate to see him hurting, but so many nasty things have been said by the two of them I don't kow how I could ever get past it. I know that I wouldnt allow my children around people like that. Besides Joe told Teresa he didnt want you and Joey in his house, which is so stupid and mean but you know what, I wouldnt never go back there. Oh Believe me, I am smart enough to see and know whats going on. I am not one of Teresa's pom pom waving cheerleader's, I'm sick of reading the same sad things from them all the time over and over the same things, like WOW look at your blog its all Teresa bashing, and then there's Teresa I just Love Love Love you and their just jealous that one makes me chuckle, seriously, I mean come on Melissa you know you want all her debt and her nasty husband and of course your jealous that he'll be going to jail ( away ) maybe and that he can't drive because he lost his license, your so jealous, and that he doesnt work and he's home all the time oh yes I can see what your jealous of now Melissa, and of course the drunk behavior and name calling your jealous of yep wow your jealous of her life. Dear god help them. Those are the stupid comments thats posted day after day after day. Oh and why did you wait to post your blog after she posted hers, thats another stupid one. But of course the all time favorite is you and kathy called producers to get on the show, you both did it to hurt Teresa and went behind her back to do it. OMG This one is the one I think is as stupid as any of them. Here's what I have to say about that WHO the hell is Teresa she's not the star of this show as much as people would like to think she is. She's the one that has the most trouble on the show. If Bravo contacted you and pitched this project to you and Kathy why not go for it why not get some of the opportunties that this show can give you and offer you, your proud of your life. I don't know who she thinks she is. Look if she doesnt like you and Kathy on the show and I know she doesnt lets just be honest she needs to LEAVE then, seriously I'm so sick of her thinking she entitled. She doesnt think that anyone else can get a cover of a magazine, well I believe you've been on a few and as for the other ladies she has no knowledge of everything about Caroline and Jac. they don't tell her everything I'm sure. The difference is they like to keep some of their lifes private which would make sense to the normal average person. I don't think they would speak to a magazine and talk about cast members, if they did, it would be in more of a positive way. Melissa you've gone beyond what other women would in order to try and get the relationship good again and it doesnt appear to be working. I think at some point you'll have to chalk it up as look we've put in a lot of effort in to try and get a relationship back and theres been no effort on their part. It's their loss. Gia will understand one day soon as she gets older I know she and Joey have a special bond and thats the very sad part I just don't feel that she knows how hard he has tried, you know the parents arent saying anything positive around her. It's a shame those little girls have to hear the way they speak. You have to continue to focus on what makes you and your family happy. Continue those dinners with Joeys Mom and Dad as long as your husband has them and you and the kids in his life he'll be just fine, he'd also got Rich and Kathy and your sisters and their families and many friends. Life is good don't let her or her husband bring you down. I'm sure you've exhausted all efforts and I'm sorry it didnt work out. But you have this show and people love watching you.
Bought your Rockstar song Sunday for my daughters Graduation Party!! Everyone wants to know "who is that"!!
Kudos to you and your husband for trying to stay loyal to difficult relatives, even when their words and actions resist reality. I don't know how you manage to do it, while remaining a loving caring mother and wife. Keep taking the high road - I admire your efforts to remain aligned with things that really matter.
Melissa I love you! You are a rock star and a great wife and mother, maybe that is why Teresa is so jealous of you. Your children look so happy and loved and the love between you and Joe seems genuine and real.
I love watching you and your family on the show. I also love your song! I think you need to stay away from toxic Teresa, she will never be normal at this point.
I hope you enjoy your summer with your husband and children, God bless!
Melissa I LOVE your beach house! What a beautiful summer home!! You all look like you had so much fun at the party, I'm so glad to see everyone happy and having fun. Is it coincidence that you all had a blast and that Teresa wasn't there? Just sayin'. Keep your chin up and stay classy and don't let Teresa and her nonsense get you down.
Love your new song! I just DL'd it on itunes! Keep cranking out the songs girl you ROCK!
PS: would you consider doing any rock songs? I think you would sound awesome! Peace and love!!! xoxoxo
Rock star...try singing a capella, we all know what a disaster that would be. You really should watch and listen to yourself. If your husband had half a brain he would see right through you. You are not a very nice person. Neither are the friends you align yourself with and we know what happens to women who won't kiss their a$$es.
It's clear that Teresa harps against you continually, and it's boring. Teresa isn't all there, IMO, as her husband yells at her and she is coy.
It's great that Joey is reaching out to get therapy with his sister. Everyone needs some help, at one time or another, from someone who's a pro. Teresa is living in the Victorian Era (in Italy) refusing to acknowledge that she needs professional help!
Rock up girl!
You and your husband came on the show to make Teresa look as bad as possible. That was and is you motive. I feel sorry for the people who can't see through you. If is soooo obvious. Your bad acting skills can't hide it. You and your sisters have this as your purpose. We saw it in the first episode. You want what Teresa has as far as celebrity and that is what you came of the show for period.
Dont ever change who you are and keep the kids away from the drama and in a happy place, its the best thing you can do for them. Have an awesome summer! I know I will ...
I don't want to get involved in the drama between you and Teresa.. all I can say is.. this is what happens when a brother and sister are close and the brother brings another woman into the picture.. its a normal situation, while not a healthy one, it does happen.. the only comment I would like to make in relation to you is.. please stop putting your sisters and their spouses on tv to give them their 5 minutes of fame.. I cringe whenever I see them agreeing with you and putting Teresa down.. they should stick to being well.. just them and the old you before money came into your life..
Both you and Teresa are so much alike! Yep, you both love attention and being the center of attention as well. I think that is why your hubby was so attracted to you because you reminded him of his sister. That is really a compliment. My younger brother was first attracted to his wife to be because she had many traits like me. Of course we are not that much alike but I thought that was sweet. IF you and Teresa could only be happy to be family. Accept eachother and enjoy family life. Your children and Teresa's children will benefit having close relationships. Nothing worse than a disfunctional family and that is what you all are becoming. Airing your laundry in public is so distasteful. I think you try but try harder. Hopefully Teresa will wake up.
Melissa, I've loved you from the first day I saw you on the show! You have a beautiful family and your music talent is undeniable. You and Theresa do have one thing in common - you are both strong ladies - that's a good thing. Theresa is used to getting her way, she is a bully, and I'm glad to see you stand up for yourself and your family. I see all these comments on the website that Theresa should get her own show. NOPE - you should have your own show! Let me know who I need to talk to! :)
I think the dog was real and not fake as you mentioned in your blog. No fake dogs to be seen anywheres.
i like you...you love your family and that's all that matters. i have a sister that is a Teresa...she needs attention and i can only take her in small doses. she used to try and make me seem like the bad guy. What i did was ignore her. If people come back to me, i just tell them 'stop. i know what she says so you decide if i'm what she says i am.'. people like Teresa and my sister ARE narcissistic and they are jealous of any success anyone else might have, especially a sibling or relative. At the end of the day, it's them not us that has the issue. I still visit my sister but i take her in small doses...everyone at some point has been burned by her. i believe unless Teresa changes her tune, she will burn every bridge behind her. you just have to ignore her and the comments she makes. she's trying very hard to get your attention. if she gets to you, just walk away. BUT if she goes after your children, then that's a different story.
Melissa, I am so glad you are on the show! Your are funny, smart, a great wife, mother and role model. Plus you are one sexxxxxay milf :) I used to like Teresa but it seems that in the last 2 seasons, the fame and $$ has taken its toll on her. Some people get affected by the fame, and some people stay grounded. You and Jacqueline are the ones that seem to stay grounded despite the drama and despite the fame! I'm sure you both could sell tons of magazine covers, but its obvious that hurting your friends and family has a price that you aren't willing to sell for. Too bad Teresa sold to the highest bidder.
Teresa reminds me so much of my brother in law it's freaky....At one point or another there comes a point in time, when their issues are their problems...In the end anger breeds hate and hate only leads to poor behavior.
I totally agree that Teresa would have wanted to join the show if you had been on it first. That is the problem! You are both very much alike! You wanted to join the show to claim your own 15 mins of fame regardless of what Teresa's reaction was. You knew that it would not be good for the family dynamics but you didn't care! Now the once funny show has turned into a train wreck. I really don't enjoy it any more. I still watch it but only in the way I would a car accident... In utter horror! None of you in the entire cast are of interest ...only a bunch of ugly acting people trying to outdo the other and pat yourselves on the back for being the one who is above it all!
why did you feel bad for Danielle b/c Teresa was going after her? Your new friends, Jac and the Manzos were the ones that really went after her. Please. You all just look for reasons/excuses to bash Teresa...but when you or other cast member do the same thing, there is no problem.
Oh and the show didn't come to you, sweetheart.
YOU and your miniman begged to be on the show. Stop with all the lies already. Your nose will look even bigger soon. *w*
I know you hate it but nobody would know your name if it wasn't for your sister in law. Nobody was putting you or your sisters on any show without Teresa, right?? Suck it up already.
