Melissa Gorga

Melissa dishes on her new song, the beach house bash, and all the tabloid talk.

on Jun 12, 20120

This is what life is about, being with your closest friends and family. This is really who Joe and I are, just fun happy people who love life. I’m so glad you get to see how much we love being with our family. I love that you got to see my dad’s two brothers and his sister on this episode. You probably don’t know which ones they were, but they were there partying with us. I love them so much, and it just goes to show you how close my family is. My mother still hangs out with my dad’s sister every single day. They are best friends.
 
I want to thank all my family and my amazing fans for your support with my music. Do you love my new single ROCKSTAR?! When I wrote it I just wanted it to be about having fun, partying, dancing, and just forgetting about the stress. I hope you listen to it all summer long and just have a good time when you do! This is what makes me tick. I feel so blessed that I have an opportunity to share the love I have for music with all of you. Enjoy it!
 
ROCKSTAR is on iTunes right now! Go and get it! Here’s the link: http://bit.ly/LJXIdx.
 
I also posted a new blog on my website about The View appearance we did last week. All my other appearances that are coming up are on there too! I hope to meet you at one of them!
 
Follow me on Twitter @melissagorga and on Facebook for the scoop!
 
Lots of Love,
Melissa

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 had this whole response written that was just plain arrogant. I decided to take a step back and re-write. Who am I, a stranger, to write in as if I know what is truly going on in your lives. It's easy to get sucked in watching your show every week (which I love) and to pass judgments. But this I do know...I am a full-time working mother. I am a teacher and I make it a point in everyday, busy life to instill in my children, as well as my students, that respect and family values are key. This is inspiring to see in your imidiate family. It is sad to see that some people on the show have such trouble showing respect to their family let alone teaching their own children how to respect other family members/adults. We all know that we teachers aren't the richest people in the world....but I know that my children are rich with faith, love, and most of all respect! Like yours, Melissa & Joe...it takes values. That is something to write about and that is something that this RHONJ viewer enjoys watching.

You claim that you didn't come on the show to ruin Teresa but please explain why you and joe would make the decision to come on a show your sister in law is on and you kno you are feuding with if you had good intentions???? Bullshit!!!!! Your fake and so jealous of Teresa it's ridiculous. Instead of trying to win everyone over with your fake lies why don't you do what you say your trying to do and rally around Teresa and be there. But he'll, I'd I was her I would not accept your help either, she knew what you were up to coming on to the show and it's proved to be true because now you have ruined ten year friendships for her!!! I hope you all leave the show, I can't stand watching you

I think that all of you have come along way and now you all get along wonder why maybe because the person who was always causing division isn't coming between all of you.

Melissa - So there is your hubby Joe acting so innocent with Rich (while Rich eggs it on) saying I really want to work things out with my sister and she’s not responding to my request for therapy, blah blah blah, more acting. But before that he brings in the magazine to get everyone all stirred up and upset with Teresa. What a bunch of BS Joe is. He loves all the turmoil he stirs up in his real family, you and the Wakilies. That is his family. He is a total fraud when it comes to wanting to work things out with Teresa. It is just another ploy to try to make her look bad. Why is it that any of you believe tabloids??? Is everything they write true or have celebs been bringing lawsuits against them for years on end for twisting stories into lies. Face it, blaming Teresa for everything under the son is a hobby for all of you. You receive the gift of much support from each other. It is so shameful. Do you think you could have some integrity during the reunion and not be attacking and hurtful and blaming for hours. Can you look at yourself and correct what needs to be corrected and let Teresa be responsible for correcting her own issues. Told Bravo this is it for me. I will not watch another season of HATING. This show went into the ditch when your family and the Wakilies joined to do the job of attacking Teresa.

i hope bravo posts this because i agree with most of the viewers wherein melissa is so phony. I wish yall would just give tre her own show cuz i cannot watch this show anymore period but i will watch when tre is on. Melissa makes me cringe when she acts like she is so innocent! IF YOU READ HER BLOG SHE IS CONTRADICTING HERSELF ALL OVER THE PLACE! CAROLINE IS JUST MEAN MEAN MEAN SHE BLAMES TRE FOR HER TROUBLES WITH DINA. ....nope ive read numerous times from dina herself that tre had nothing to do but caroline does not want to take responsibility for anything she does. And jacqueline some friend u turn out to be. You are so two faced and such a caroline follower, to me u have ur own problems back off tre and you should be ashamed of yourself for going after gia like you did and u did it so underhanded by reading that book. She has gone through enough. And kathy omg tre is your freaking blood relative you should be supporting her instead of golddigger melissa. Definitely not the italian way like you say you are. And joe stop texting tre get out from your wife spike heel and go talk to her like A REal italian. I wish you guys would represent true sense of family instead of who has the nicest biggest whatever. Melissa we wnt to see less of you and more pf your cutie pie kids.

Well copycat, you got your way... Your maliciousness and jealousy toward your sister-in-law has ruined this show... You were jealous that she had this show and you wanted a jumping off point for your pointless singing career... Let's be honest, you will be nothing more than a lounge singer... Heck your song hasn't even crossed the Delaware... The fact that YOU WERE the source for Danielle is more despicable than anything Teresa could possibly say or do... I also believe that you are the story behind the stories in the tabloids.... You may have duped Caroline and Jacqueline, but the truth always comes out...

Melissa, You really have no concerns where Teresa is concerned these people that post their little one liners about you joining the show to hurt her and that you went behind Teresa's back is just dumb and stupid, because it's crystal clear that neither was the case. They sound very insecure about the subject which in itself is stupid because they don't her, and they don't have any backup or proof of anything. Teresa surely doesn't want to know them which makes it to funny. If you wanted to hurt her as you said in your blog you could have a while ago, infact it is her that's trying to hurt you to the point that its really getting to funny as she keeps it up. It is she that has all the jealousy, you have a beautiful home family, great friends well behaved children a wonderful husband thats opposite of the loser she has, she has nothing but large law suits pending with large debt, if people are missing all those FACTS I feel bad for them. It's public knowledge people, maybe you should do some research if your brains can handle it.

Teresa said that she signed the contract the day the shooting of season 3 started which should say she knew you guys were coming on the show, it doesnt matter anyway because this is not the Teresa show.

You seem to be SO real and genuine,and I love to watch all the fun you have with your family and friends. I'd luv to hang at the shore house with you all!!! But why are you selling your gorgeous house????

And so, it seems that Teresa has the advantage, because, as she claims this is her show and she started it, regardless whether anyone else likes it or not and besides, as long as, she fishes "her fans" in by calling all of them her "baby dolls", they will support her....like her, "her fans" need to be loved by their "reality star" who has been on 25 covers with all of Hollywood wishing they were in that much demand. See...the thing is, no one else has as much drama in their life and no one else loves themself as much as Teresa loves Teresa and besides, the little munchkin man she is married to is the real reason that she is so popular...my goodness, not many men can get themself in that much trouble all by themself. So, no one is getting ahead of Teresa until she runs out of trouble or if she decides she doesn't like to be photographed anymore. That silly, silly woman.

I thought this was a blog about you the only thing you are doing is bashing Teresa you sound as if you are jelous of Teresa she go out and make her money and you depend on your husband she's a go getter you are not.

Please show this comment.

First, you and Joey (whether you want to admit it or not) used Teresa's comment to get a lot of air time. Joey was telling Teresa about how Joe was cheating on her and attacking Joe so Teresa came back with the comment about you could end up cheating to. Teresa has no control over Joe just like Joey has no control over you. People do and say what they will. It does seem like Joe controls Teresa, but that's her problem.

Second, you and Joe deliberately mentioned the comment to everyone. Why not just talk to Teresa about it one to one? Nope, instead you go through everyone else first to get the pot stirred up even more.

Third, relatives don't always know the full situation, so sometimes, they don't understand things. Instead of deliberately blurting out the comment on TV, he should have confronted Teresa about her comment right away. Maybe if he assured her that you aren't like that, she would have calmed down.

Forth, Teresa doesn't tell Joe what Joey says, because she doesn't want Joe to know how much people talk about him. She knows it will only upset him and make him feel bad. I guess Joey doesn't care if you're upset or feel bad. Joey just kept twisting her words all up and ended up accusing her of threatening him. It was such a deliberate play for drama on his end.

You're just using Teresa to get as much air time as you can. It's all about making headlines so you can promote your songs. Of course, you have to play victim, because no one would buy your songs if you didn't. Hope the money you get off of the songs is worth it.

You and Joe have such an amazing family. It shows how much you all love each other. Teresa has put you both through a lot that you don't deserve. She obviously is the one that is jealous, her marriage isn't anywhere near as loving and respectful as yours is. Good luck to you.

I was a huge Teresa fan and didn't warm up to you until this season when her true colors have shone through! Now I ADORE you and Joe and am TEAM MELISSA all the way!!! Teresa is unstable...I wish she would get help and dump the large lump of a loser who is dragging her down. Keep being real girlfriend!! Love you!!

Stop making mean comments about Teresa. You really aren't doing anything to help your family situation. Teresa doesn't make those mean comments about you but all you do is say nasty things about her (maybe without even realizing it!). In time you'll learn--and you'll be so upset how much of your nieces lives you missed!!!

No wonder Tre hates you. You admit you talked bad about her to Danielle. That is the lowest of lows. I would not like ya either after that. I don't blame her. And you make digs at her as well. Like at Cathy's, "oh Im easy" "Ill dink sangria." After Tre wanted something frozen. Melissa, that is a dig! You are sooooo fake!

It is the Teresa show. You made it that way. LOL!!! Plus Teresa never called it her show. The viewers did, because it's true. Hurts huh? LOL!!!

You seriously spoke to Daniell about your sister in law when you knew they were at odds with each other. You gave her info that she brought up at the reunion. We had no idea there were all these family issues until the first episode you and your husband was on the show (the Christening party). Theresa was very successful in trying to keep her family issues private and you all did exactly the opposite. Just you speaking to Daniell of all people (someone who was not even in your circle of friends) about family business speaks volumes.

You and those Christmas cookies - the ones that Teresa threw out. I know, (as you said on the reunion), you brought the sprinkle cookies, you were pregnant and she threw them out. Boohoo. You have since said you were not on the best of terms. You go to her home on Christmas Eve, someone who takes pride in their holiday and the food she serves and you - who are on bad terms - bring a container of 2.99 cookies - on purpose. Your message is clear - you do not value her, her home or what she and her family is used to and enjoys. She throws them out. Her message is clear. She's not turning the other cheek at the insult. The hell with you and those cheap cookies you brought purposely to diminish her holiday. Sounds like a fair reaction to me. Don't think any Italian person doesn't know exactly what kind of cookie you brought. Enough of that cookie story - you seriously posted the incident on Facebook?. The only thing I would have done differently is throw them to the birds.

It IS the Teresa Show!!! That is why 75% of your blog is about Teresa. And I highly doubt you would have been asked to join the show if it wasn't for Teresa. Bravo knew all about your relationship and just added you to fuel the fire. Get over yourself.

Did you and Teresa's brother send an audition tape to bravo, saying that you would destroy Teresa? Who would do that to their sister? :(

What show are you nall watching? Teresa is a train wreck and she is making her children crash with her. She won't go against what her husband says to do? That is obvious, but unfortunately for her, her husband is a mean-spirited, criminal caveman with the IQ of a turnip. Wait, come to think of it, they are perfect for each other. Keep listening Teresa and Melissa and Joey, keep doing whatever you can to stay away or you, too, will crash when she inevitably does.

Melissa, I really love watching you and your adorable family on the show. I think you guys are great. The only thing that worries me is how you guys party/drink in front of your kids. Your husband pushed Richie in the pool and he almsot landed on your daughter. It just doesn't seem like you guys are that responsible when you get together. It's sad that the kids have to see all this.

Melissa, I feel for you and Joe. It is obvious to me that Theresa has been unraveling since the table flip in season one. It looks to me like she is resentful and jealous of you. You have substance, youth, happiness and her baby brother. Glad you are on the show. Your family seems so sweet. Love your songs!

Melissa, continued success hon.... you have an amazing life family and now career. Take a back seat to the Teresa drama....let her continue to make her bed. I prefer YOU now that you aren't being snarky snappy and lets say playing the "beatch role!" LOL personally i really do not see why anyone woul dhave to be jealous of anyone. you al have wonderful lives. and you are right, why she does not go to therapy to repair her relationship with her brother is ridiculous. he isn't have matrimonial issues, so he doesnt have to taake you. What he would and should include you is AFTER he and his sister have made peace and amends. But, i dont know.....it is pretty backwards and half assed with them. sad, very sad. good luck....

Really everyone? Melissa is writing about Teresa because the assignment is to write your thoughts after each episode, ABOUT that episode. Each episode happens to be about that specific housewife because she is the one creating the most dramatic story line. Melissa, you are great. Don't let any of these people hiding behind their computer screens get you down. Fans only on here, please. If you do not agree with what Melissa has to say, then don't you feel silly that you just read her every word. Also? Let's learn to spell. Next week? Punctuation.

Holla...This is the Teresa Show..now we just need her coat tail riding family to go back to the shore. Viewers want to see some class..not whip cream and fake auto tune garbage. Grown men gossiping and playing to the camera..Its all a front.

i think that instead of bashing theresa her friends and family should be gathering together and helping her. she is a lost soul screaming for help and no one is listening just hurting her by your foul words and hateful gestures. come together and help her.

The Rosie thing was last week. Your just trying to win people over. the reason I don't care for you is: You seem fake. I can't put my finger on it but something about you and your husband dose not ring true to me. btw Joe spends way to much energy on trying to be front and center of the camera. You guys just seem "STAGED" to me. try to be yourself maybe people will like you.

This is too tedious to even comment on . The fact that yoiu even wrote the above thinking we would buy any of it is ridiculous and tiring. The irony of you projecting that Teres prjects is just too dang funny. You have been a snake. BRAVO- Please do NOT bring Melissa back. For the love of God. Lose the dead weight. We want to like this show again. Yeesh.

HI Melissa! So glad you are telling your side of the story. I believe you 110%! Joe and you are adorable! Some posters seem to have a problem with you and others writing about the show. I guess they want you to write about the weather. Ignore them! Teresa is a head case and I'm so sorry you have to deal with her insecurities and childishness. Its time Teresa realizes that the world does not revolve around her. Just keep living your happy lives and ignore the negativity. You are beautiful and such a sweetheart.
