Melissa Gorga

Melissa Gorga thinks the Napa trip helped bring her and Teresa closer than before.

on Aug 2, 20120

Teresa was killing me while we were talking to the neighbors! LOL! They were explaining to us that they live there all year round. They were not on vacation, they live in the RVs and wake up to that beautiful view every day. Teresa was just not having it! It’s kind of funny to sit back now and watch, I remember the conversation feeling so awkward!

The talk between me and Teresa on the beach was real and honest. She told me how she felt about the recipe situation with Kathy, and I told her how I felt about everything that was going on. I know she doesn’t have a sister to come in and give her advice on certain things, so I was trying to break down that wall and step in with what I thought was sisterly advice. I don’t sugar coat things -- I call it like I see it. I like when people are open and honest with me, so that’s what I was trying to do for her, hoping it could help mend her other relationships. I think she appreciated it and actually tried to listen to me. I felt good walking away from that conversation.



We are breaking ground here folks! Are you loving it?

We all know you and Teresa end this season on a positive note, just like these napa scenes before the ending. We know Jacqueline and she have an issue, that has way since been proven Terresa had no part of. The reason Jaq tweaks and doesn't show up at the reuion. It's going to be the finale---your ex employer (dancer) shows up at a salon you women are at and Jacqueline thinks Teresa set you up. The guys has given numerous interviews that he had never met Teresa before, and running into you women at the salon was a coincidence, and in fact, Teresa told him there to "leave her family alone". You told us "all you ever wanted from this show was to make your family better", and that "Joe was so happy at Napa when you guys were getting along" and "Your husband's happiness is ALL that matters" and the family getting back together has been your "sole purpose." SO then WHY did you show up at the reunion, that was filmed AFTER the end of this season we're waching, attacking Teresa, humilating Teresa by having her her family side with Caroline and attack Teresa in front of Caroline? You actually enjoyed it with Caroline and you thought you had Teresa in a lock hold. You wanted her flattened at that reunion which was AFTER this feel good time we're watching and HEARING from you about. I think this PROVES to anyone what your intentions have been, and what your "master-plan" has been. I don't need to "read" into anything, or even speculate. You did it.

Melissa, I so enjoyed seeing you and Theresa on the RV... you too are so funny together.  I wish your husband would take it down a notch with always showing his "assets"  off... he makes himself look ridiculous.  I can feel for you when he does this, he needs to reel it in!  By the way I enjoy you as a singer and I wish you the best!  I think that Caroline and the others need to stop the criticizing of Theresa ... maybe if they walked a mile in Theresa's shoes with the money problems they would realize what she might be going through.  I feel you are trying really hard to support Theresa without always bringing it up to her!  You are a good person!

Funniest part of the last episode...when Joe Guidice was chasing Joe Gorga and stepped on his wet suit!! I was laughing so hard I had to rewind it several times...now that's the kind of emotion I want to have watching these kinds of shows!!

Melissa, I saw the total fear on your face.  I get that irrational and crazy with bare feet under water.  The dirt, rock, bugs, algea, etc........I can't friggin stand it. I know that you were not faking.  Your hubby got annoyed.  Well, whatever.  I HATE canoeing and I knew your pain.  And thanks for really trying with Teresa.  She really loves her brother very much.  I think that you are being a great sister-in-law on these 2 past episodes.  Thank you for trying.

Melissa, a bunch of my friends watched this show together last night. One of them made a very astute statement. When you were running in the stream, screaming, and in a full blown state of dread, fear and panic over something attacking you under dark waters that you couldn't see, one of them said  "Now she knows exactly how Teresa has felt since the day she joined."  Pretty acurate I thought.

Melissa you were so funny it has been such a joy to watch you and I really think you and Joe are such a cute couple.....Teresa and Joe need to really spend more time with you both  maybe the good happy attitudes will rub off on them.....

Mellisa   love you...cuz you are a classy gal.  Im afraid to tell that your husband's behavior on camera is starting to ruin your brand...  if your brand is that we talk about being like a black condom or showing our junk on camera cuz we're proud   then I am sure 14 year old boys maybe your target audience.    Your husband used to seem like a pretty smart guy...his on camera conversations with the viewer are getting tackier and tackier.  He doesnt seem so smart any more.   Its important to be yourself for sure..but restraint is a word he may need to be come familiar with.  I can tell you know what Im talking about because of the way you edit Theresa

Melissa you have done 360 on how you handle and carry yourself. I like it. good girl. You are blessed and family is important. It seems to be more than challenging to bring to teresa to the light. She doesn't want to be responsible for anything. She feels that it is the world against her, and that surely is not the case. Sad that she feels that she doesnt need therapy. That she twists everything around to her benefit that she doesn't credit the people who do love her and care for her....her toast to the family...(joe and you) and NOT include kathy and rest was pathetic. shows she is wallowing in the delussional world of Teresa. one thing i give your husband is that he is HONEST and STRAIGHT when he says what he says about his sister. Thats his sister but he isn't blind. No one should walk on eggshells with her. She needs that reality check and it is horrible how you seem to find yourselves catering to her demented form of thinking. Karma is  Bitch adn it is at her door for a reason...She may do the best she can for her family but she doesn't realize all she takes down and her own personal insecurities that come through clearly when she hurts others. Carolines prediction is more than real, and I dont doubt at all that Joe will end up divorced. Not to say that he is justified in his personal actions of infidelities...because he is a sly one...he is...he is very down to earth but that attitude of his is what gets him through all the other stuff. Continued success in your career you do have a voice.....!!!! If the viewers can HEAR your voice, why can't the idiot of Teresa hear it..... uuuuuuuuuuuuuurgh!

Your husband really crossed the line, enough of this, its not funny or cute. Exposing yourself in front of your sister? Absolutly disgusting! Cmon bravo enough is enough with some of these cast members!O.k. I

I just want to say that I think you are a beautiful young girl.  I have kind of been on the fence with you at times.  Although I believed that you were definitely not the cause of the problem between you and Teresa and also felt bad for you that some commenters were vicious in their remarks to you, I was not sure how much of you was real and how much was for show.  The more I see of you, the more I lean toward that while your behavior has not always been perfect, you basically are a good person who wants good things for others, and more specifically your husband.  Also, I commend you on being big enough to not only be cordial but make an effort with Joe Guidice as he has been so ugly in his remarks to you with no reason.  Hats off!

The ONLY thing I find more appalling than Joe's language and the implications of his phone call (that Bravo posted, of course), is the fact that Melissa and "friends" will be home smiling, and smug in the fact that her "plan" to remove Teresa from graces, with the joyous sidenote of getting famous has been seen to fruition. This show is by far the most stomach turning example of jealousy and greed, and what one woman will do to family to achieve "hers." Joe had to excuse himself from a table of people who are actually documenting the demise of his wife and family----I don't know how he went the week with lambasting ONLY Teresa, I should think the crew would have been fair game. I'm disgusted, I know I should be at Joe, but I think we've all been at the place where we lash out at the closest person to us, when the pain is unbearable, and the people causing it are off limits. The Gorgas for me are stomach turning, and the thought of the happiness and satisfaction in their hearts knowing America will see that scene must be unbearable to Teresa. Her own brother,,,wow. You would have to torture me slowly to have me download ONE of Melissa's songs and give her any reward for all she has done.

I think you did a good job being fair in Katie/Theresa's situation. Remember to do the same when other people talk to you about Theresa and she is not around. You should have her back more than any other ladies in this show. I hate to blame you but I think you all play part in the family problem you included. You should all participate into reparation so good job here for you for now.

Melissa just keep being you,, please do not drink the cool-aid and pretend everything is prefect.. your not doing that now so don't start.... and no you don't have to milk your fan's into gaining any sympathy, because your not out there putting your stuff out there, like tre is and that is way everyone talks about it, because tre is the one who put it all out there then blames other,,,

hi Melissa!!!

thank you for the fun & light attitude!! just what I wanted.  My life is very full so I tune in for girl fun & i have almost stopped watching the show...too much bashing.  Teresa is sassy and says all the wrong things but I think she is wonderful

She seems defensive and stressed.  She also seems like she likes her privacy.  She enjoys being on the show for the exposure but some people go to far.  I don't care about the money, drama, fighting....I really just enjoyed this FUN episode 

you were a very good sister-in-law this show except when you tried to "fix" her; stop already and the world will enjoy you more...i do

I really don't mind Melissa. She may talk some smack behind her sister in laws back, but we should be able to let off some steam to get over some things. Not everyone can handle reality.

Please clarify; was Teresa telling the truth when she said that her father was kept in the dark and they don't allow him to watch the show  because he would flip out if he knew, particularly about the garbage remark.  Does anyone have a source for the fact that the Gorga's Sr do not spend any time with Joe and Melissa's family?  If so, how sad; there are three little children who are losing grandparents; what an unfortunate choice to make, regardless of anything else.

I agree. Get Melissa off the show and bring Danielle back. Melissa is nothing but a fake person. If she truly wanted to get your husbands side of the family together she should stop talking behind their back constantly. You are a Hippocrate!!!! She wants to make viewers believe all the lies she says about Theresa but it's pretty clear that you just want all the attention and success she has and built on her own. We don't see Melissa as family oriented as Theresa!! Again she wants us to believes she is someone she is not.

Why does this season seem like a long drawn out infommercial for blk and cafface (both awful names IMO), a painful public audition by Melissa to convince viewers that she can sing (I'm not convinced), and Kathy trying desperately to fly on the same cookbook trajectory as Teresa.

Please post bravo....ugh after that please get melissa off the show. It's really hard to watch a family like this. I don't like a lot of people but I sit next to them at work, sit near them at my kids sporting events but I would never, ever even think of treating them as horribly as Melissa and her husband great their own family.

I noticed that this sunday you are showing Joe Guidice a raccon stuff animal.  Are you trying to start something or are you making fun of Kathy because you know he said she looked liked a racoon.  Your claws are showing!!!  Your making everything Teresa said about you true.

beantownviewer

First before I get slammed, I am not a Teresa bigot or major fan of anyone on this show right now.  I have watched for the last two seasons and listened to Teresa say Melissa throws the digs and isnt that innocent.  This season I waited and waited for Teresa's capital crime to be unveiled, still waiting.... Melissa seems to be more savy then the rest and is reading what the viewers have said about  everyone ganging up on Teresa and is trying to appear kinder.  

 

Turns out Teresa is right,  in this blog where Melissa is full of love and so glad they shared the RV she had to put the DIG in about her Joe having to do all the driving.  We get it, Teresa's Joe doesn't have a license, no need to remind us.  Also in the episode at the Walike's pool party, Teresa asked for a drink that Kathy didn't have prepared, Melissa snidely replied she was drinking what was offered.  Very subtle harmless digs but I am sure after 5+ years they must get gratting and tiring. 

 

So you don't like each other, we get it, but that doesn't mean the person you don't like is evil, you just don't "mesh", leave it alone will you

 Don't you see that ship has sailed...? Melissa went on the last "bloodbath" reunion AFTER this season ended. She just told us "she and Teresa were getting along better", and that "that makes her husband so happy because after all "It's the only thing I care about, my husband's happiness, getting our family back together is ALL we ever wanted" Then WHY did she come on that reunion helping Caroline slaughter Tresa. In fact, she enjoyed it.  They both have told us that they end this season in the next few weeks in a good place. I think what she did at the reunion tells everybody everything they need to know about Melissa's agenda. Black n White.

Are you kidding? Did you hear the way JoGo spoke to Melissa in the boat? Something tells me that is his usual attitude with her when there is no audience to impress.

 @Bad2Bone I agree with you. From what I have noticed is that as soon as her husband got on a better relationship with Theresa, all of a sudden his behavior changed. I am not sure why though. Didn't like when he was telling Mellisa to shut the F.....off, when she was telling him the canoe was sinking. Totally not OK to talk that way.

 Yea, if you think orchestarting a family's destruction for the trade-off for fame is "entertaining and fun"---and I absolutely mean to imply that Joe Guidice's demise is the culmination of all of their "work" coming to a head. Absolutely.

 @coloitalian I think Teresa was telling the truth about the family trying to Gorga senior in the dark about the show; because, of his poor health.  Teresa has said that Her and Joey's mother watches the show.  Melissa has said that her kids see-visit with their grandparents at least once a week.  There was a picture floating around of the grandparents Gorga with Melissa and Joey's kids.  I think the whole family is trying to protect the Senior Gorga's from all the drama.

 @beantownviewer your not a teresa fan? i will remind you how teresa tried to hurt her own brother by planting a seed in his mind about his wife,, so he would shut her down , that was teresa motive that's why she said it off camera, because she didnt want her friends to see once again her sneaking lies.. so glad her brother is closer to his wife and not tre, i get the feeling tre's joe and her aren't that  close because she assumed he would not tell his wife.. in which in should have and did.. just saying

 @FIFY@MeganNYC @gessie 

 You guys are right and I think it all stamps down to jealousy.

I saw a clip of Teresa's housewarming  party when she first moved in  and she was in the front thanking the guest and she ackhnoledged joey (cant remember exactly but she mentioned something like don't we look alike) and Melissa shouted out something out loud from where the guest was standing. So the relationship was there, it may not have been the greatest but it was there ( and with all this Melissa was contacting Danielle!). Joey and Melissa weren't filmed on camera which looking at them loving the camera time I would imagine it would have eaten them up. Tre's parents were filmed.

 @FIFY Bravo has shown footage that they were at every major event.  However, Bravo had no reason to air the footage at the time as they were not on the show.  Bravo did, however discredit their claim that :teresa never included them in the important" events in her life" as baseless.

MeganNYC

 @FIFY

 

FIFY, I agree with most of what you said but this, " I think Melissa and Joe were very angry Tre had never included them in the years she was on." 

 

They were at every party Teresa had.  To prove that point Bravo even showed her housewarming when Teresa introduced her brother to everyone.  Telling then how much she loved him and that they looked like twin.  Melissa was just standing there with a smirk on her face.

 

Then again at one of the baptisims.  They showed them at the table.  So, they were invited it was just that Bravo didn't want to film them and I think you're right, that just ate them up.  The fact that she was on this show and they weren't.  That's when the jealousy started.  They wanted the fame and Teresa had it.
