I will say I got a sick feeling in my stomach when Caroline said she's been in the car with Teresa and heard Teresa bashing Joe and me to her mother. This is nothing we didn't know already, but to hear about it is just sad. Joe suffers all the time because of the wall Teresa tries to put up between him and his parents. Nothing hurts him more. When they are upset for no reason at all, my kids don't get to see their only grandfather. I think I understand why she lied and tried to poison everyone’s minds against us, but why his own parents? It takes a person with a very, very small conscience to do that. Then to tell Caroline that I was a copycat, a stripper, gold digger, whore, and wanted to be her? Wow. This blows my mind. Where does she get this from? Every one of those statements is false. It is terrible to go around and try to ruin someone's character. It's just not right. I'm not gonna lie, I really think it's disgusting and I wish she would stop. The sooner she stops trying to hurt other people, the sooner her own life will get better. It's not fair to do these things and lie to all of us constantly.
There is now proof that she gets paid for these articles and she was lying to us the whole time. I think her credibility is now completely gone. I tried everything I possibly could to fix the relationship between Teresa and me and Joe. It was going really well. I did this for family. I did this for my husband. It is now clear that she tried to poison all the ladies’ and the public’s minds against Kathy and me and got them to feel sorry for her. But now the truth is coming out.
Melissa you're a good person and beautiful. That bugs the sh## out of Tereasa. She's a compulsive liar and she have a green streak a mile long. You're right to concentrate on your family. Don't let Tereasa egg you on.
Melissa just count her loses of not being in YOUR family's life and move on! Teresa is to far gone to reason with her. Save your family and walk away!!!
nysportswoman I think you were set up by Kim. You have to realize that there are a lot of haters out there. You're gorgeous and people are jealous of that. I don't care what you did and when you did it. That bald guy was so shady. Just listening to him , you could tell how scummy he was. Hold your head up high. You've got a good husband, great kids, and you're beautiful. Let the haters hate. They're always going to be around.
Melissa I think you and Joe are cute. I sure hope you believe Tre on the whole part 1 of the finale. She was set up by Kim. Who could find this Angelo and then set Tre other than Kim. You were right to wonder abot her when she called you at the house. Is this the reason you haven't talked to Tre? Tre has done alot but in my research the quotes in all those articles can be traced to other castmates quotes. I do think however you should have just told the truth about itand Joe knew also and he should have just been honest. You want to be a singer and you will need to be true. I also think you should also fess up to what you told Daielle becasue this was some of the triggerson why Tre went after Danielle on reunion season 1. You lied to get on the show and you have lied to Joe regarding the reason for the feelings Tre has about you. However, she did get a licking this season and she really didn't deserve it. She is done with Jac and Caroline and they deserved that. I want to see your family mend and you and Tre looked so good together. Make it work. Im an italian mother and you could be my daughter and we italians always say to make it work and be honest and never let anyone get inbetween your family. Caroline told you what Tre said, which goes to show that she is no friend to just hurt others by telling bad things that others say. Tre told them to quit talking about you and stuck up for you at the Salon. Kim had a huge smile on her face while she continued this conversation with Angelo. I believe she really wants her family and for 2 seasons she has been trying and very supportive of your career. Its time for you guys t move forward. Tre has alot of explaining to do on some things but so do you. I do like you and I do believe you are behind the twitter stuff they say about Joe and Tre. Think of your kids and think about Jesus, who than each and everyday. What would they want you to do. Make us really believe you are smart and kind. I'm so proud that you advised Tre to stop the negative talk and I believe she is trying and is focused on her businesses. I haven't seen anything negative but if she is doing it direct us to the right articles. I am also proud of what you said to Caroline and if you noticed she wasn't happy with what you said. She will turn on just as fast. I believe the reason Dina doesn't talk to her is because of the whole Danielle and the book thing. Dina got accused and said she never said it and left the show but Caroline did past the book around but was a coward and never fessed up. I'm sure that is why Dina is pissed and they haven't talked since season 1. I want to support your career by purchasing your music but if you really want more support be honest and fix your family,
If you stripped or dances so what who really cares. We judge you for what you do now not then. Trust in your fans and listen and you will continue to go far. Stay away from anyone who knocks your family on both sides.
Melissa: I believe Teresa does want a relationship with you, and she has put forth effort! Of course she wants a good relationship with her brother!!!!! Who doesnt want tobe close to their family!? As far as the thing with the "bald man" that said you danced for him. It is obvious by watching the show, that Teresa held up for you at the salon and also waited to get you alone to address the situation with you, out of respect! I dont believe she knew anything about how that man was going to address you, because she made herself clear she didnt want to talk about her family and didnt want to hear anyone else talking about them! Kim is a bitch and it would not surprise me if she wasnt working with Caroline to try and create problems for Teresa! She blames Teresa for everything bad that happens and wants everyone to hate her also! It is easy to see how Caroline is very good at manipulating and creating trouble! Be a prideful woman and stand your ground, and dont believe the whispers in your ear! Create a happy life for your family...with your childen, your husband, Teresa, Joe, and her children! Family is important! Caroline wants to destroy Teresa's family because her own family has problems! Misery loves company, let Caroline find other company!!!!!
Teresa does not want a relationship with you, Melissa. She just wants a relationship with her brother Joe. Just watch the show and listen to what she is saying. I have never heard her say rebuild a relationship with you, it is always rebuild a relationship with her brother Joe. Teresa is two face. Plus she is very jealous of you. As far as I am concern Caroline is correct about Teresa...she won't be happy until she gets you out of the picture. So watch your back! Good luck with your singing career ~ :-)
Melissa, I strongly suggest that you go back and watch seasons 1 - 3 and carefully watch Caroline. I discovered RHONJ midway through season 2, so I bought the first 2 seasons to see what I missed. I was very surprised that my opinion of Caroline completely changed once I was able to see how she's been acting and manipulating everyone since season 1. Please, please, I know Teresa is not perfect, but Caroline is a troublemaker with a capital T. Don't let it ruin what you and your brother have worked so hard to mend. . . I'm just sayin'.
I think everyone should stay out of everyone's business and quit trying to make amends with each person's issues.
I love you Melissa, having to deal with all this family is just so stressful. I think you really try to get the family to get along but dealing with Teresa and Joe is just torture. Teresa can never let anyone shine she always has to be the center of attention at any cost to anyone, i think your a wonderful mother and wife.
Just Love your honesty Caroline. Shame on your Sister Dina for choosing friendship over Family. After yesterdays show I clearly see who Teresa really is, good move getting her out of your life. Teresa and Dina belong together....a perfect potion of poison
Melissa, last night I liked you. The way you told Caroline she can't be the 'victim' and the look in Caroline's face, like she was biting her tongue, was priceless! Had she not needed you to destroy Teresa, I think she might have had some mighty choice words for you at that moment. It was awesome to see you stand up to her like that. I know all this was a year ago and there probably is more yet to be seen by us viewers, but if you could be that Melissa we saw last night, you could be the new favorite NJ housewife. Time will tell though.
Housewife_watcher I completely agree with you, Housewife watcher! And another thing, Melissa, you need to realize Teresa did NOT start the dancer comments comming up in the next episode. Watch carefully - she tried to defend you!
The sunglasses you wore to pickup Teresa's kids, were gorgeous, can you please tell me who they are made by, or where I can pruchase them?
I think it's a shame that you automatically believe everything you read in magazines and from Caroline. So much for letting the past be the past and moving on! I would never let my relationships with my siblings or their spouses get to this level. Guess you didn't really mean it when you said you were going to support Teresa since you choose instead to believe what Caroline said. I thought Caroline was the one who said she would never tear a family apart. Surprise, surprise! There's a line you don't cross even if you are no longer friends. Whether it was true or not, Caroline should have minded her own business.
I understand what it feels like to have a crazy family. In reality do you really think that the crazy Guidice's won't start something again? There are times that you have to step back and take a second look at what they have done.
First of all I would not believe a word out of Caroline's mouth, especially when she said that Teresa never wanted to make up with her brother, when all last season that was the focus. Do you think for one single moment that if Teresa had said any of that, that the Queen pot stirrer would not have called her out then, but waits until the reunion when she now has a beef with Teresa. And in all the season's I have been watching I have never once seen Caroline and Teresa in the same vehicle except in Italy. Please stop with the innocent act when you bash and trash talk Teresa and Joe all the time so isn't a little like the pot calling the kettle black. So what if she is getting paid by the tabloids who cares, everyone knows they twist what you say to them or is it just that you are jealous it is her face on the cover and not yours, what they have printed are quotes that you and the others have in fact said on the show.
Since I'm not an italian, I don't feel the need to be around family members that I don't like.
You are really trying to rise above it all....I am saddened to see next weeks' promo. I think enough is enough about your past! I hope it isn't as dramatic as it looks!
i was happy to see that you were there for Teresa. But after reading your blog i can truly say you are fake. You want people to think you put family first and you are the good one and Teresa is bad. If you were smart you would stand beside your family and make a power house. But you're too busy trying to be in compete with someone you have no business competing against. The Manzos and Lauritas are not good people or good friends because as soon as things did not make them the star of the show it became an issue with them and Teresa.
Melissa-you, Kathy, Caroline, and Jacquline just need to continue taking care of your families and just stay away from Teresa. You'll all be there to support her when she takes a "fall"--and that "fall" will come sooner or later.
We all know from the "tease" for next week's episode that Teresa is involved with the "dancer" issue.
@Alycat9705: I know and i can't wait... Although i'm more 4 Melissa i do believe she's no angel now or ever was....
I want to like you Melissa, I really do, but you are such a contradiction. Everything you say, you don't do and everything you do, you lie about. Just be real, like your husband. He keeps it 100 and if you do that, your life will be far less dramatic. You are young, so there is still time for change, unlike your friend Caroline who is damaged beyond help!
I agree except for the part about Joey, he needs to get over his "angel of God" belief & support his sister more.
Melissa - you are a wonderful aunt and mother. Wish my babysitter took me for manicures and pedicures. Watching you run up the driveway after your daughter missed the bus was soooo funny.
On a serious note - what someone did in their past does not define who they are today. All I can say is that your devotion to your husband and your ability to be such a wonderful mother outweighs anything from the past. Don't sweat it - if Bill Clinton can admit to smoking pot in his past and he became President - you'll be just fine.
thank you for letting me know me know it's a lie, OMG - that's even a worse situation for her.
Melissa.....these people who bring up your past.....and disquise themselves as your friends.....SHAME ON THEM! Your past is your past for a reason...to those who bring it up....LOOK OUT...your dirt will come out! That being said...Melissa......didn't like that you and Teresa were fighting.....but...with that being said......to those clowns who invited you to a event only to humiliate you....pray for them....they are sodomites. Remember Melissa ....70 x 7.....and remember Melissa...you and your husband and your children are LOVED! I wonder if those people who attacked your past realize they attacked you ..your husband....and...and....YOUR CHILDREN WHO ARE ALSO OUR FATHER IN HEAVENS CHILDREN! Beware those who have done this and repent...because if you don't......YOU JUST MAY BE TOUCHED BY AN ANGEL....and you won't like what you see and feel.
Teresa is jealous of you & always will be! You & Joe have tried everything to work things out with her, but see where it gets you? I'll bet she & Kim are the people behind the whole "dancer" drama! You should stic with Kathy, Caroliine & Jacqeline! They are real peoplewho tell the truth! Good luck & best wishes!
From the previews coming up, I'm guessing that there is some things coming to light that you would rather stay in the dark. We all have a past and those who don't wish it to become public shouldn't go on reality TV, so don't be shocked or outraged that the information is coming out and don't blame it on your sister in law. She didn't make you do it. Just say "yep, it happened, I was young and stupid, but I'm older and wiser now".
Melissa, you are a doll. Your sister and brother-in-law are toxic and vile people. I wish you luck in dealing with these treacherous vipers. Sometimes, you have to walk away from family, this is one of those cases.
Im sorry, i dont get you. On this blog you criticize teresa but in laat nights episode you criticize caroline. Right is right. Wrong is wrong. Its not about family. Its not about backing family. You still sacrifice your integrity and set a bad example when backing family who's wrong. True family dosnt lit you in that position. Youre going to have to choose soon. You cant stay in the middle for ever. For you and you're family i hope you are strong enough to choose whats right.
I think Teresa does feel a rivalry with Melissa but she is not the anti-Christ everyone makes her out to be. I think she just has an issue owning up to her own bad behavior and appears to be distant and cold at times. I think she's just stubborn. It sounds horrible the way ppl on the show make it sound like, using words like "poison" "evil" but this sounds like everyday family drama.
The ONLY thing I don't get is why Caroline and Jacqueline hate Teresa? I get that Teresa takes digs at her friends (i.e. the book, mags) to get money, but I don't think its for the attn so much. That women is deep in debt with a dumb husband, its clear she is the primary breadwinner and her kids gotta eat. I think Teresa is at worst a bad friend, but I also think these women are being a tad bit dramatic.
I think that Teresa being deep in debt and trying to make money is the cause behind all this drama, and she is doing it by selling stories in magazines by making "funny" remarks like "ha ha" about the other women and they don't like it. Teresa may think that these "funny" things are nothing to be upset about because Teresa told Jacqueline that "it's just business". Now, these "funny" things and other things coming out of Teresa's mouth are getting traction from her fans because they are repeating this stuff, like saying Kathy and Melissa came on the show to TAKE HER DOWN. Teresa started that and I have yet to know what that means. And making comments that Caroline said they didn't make, like saying the women were fun of her bankruptcy. It has been Teresa taking shots at Kathy and Melissa and Caroline admitted the things Teresa told her about them. I began to notice it at Kathy's party where she served some of her goodies that Caroline apologized for not giving her a chance. At this same party, Teresa kept making digs at Kathy's cooking. So sometimes we say and do things that may be trivia and funny, but if the receipient(s) of that action do not like it and want you to stop it; then stop it.
Where do I find the song download for Melissa. Love the song and the video and Perez Hilton is full of it . He wouldn't know a good look if it was shaving his face!! Congrats o alaysbeing a good role model on this show.
@jbethallen Perez Hilton is right on the money. The only thing he failed to mention was that her songs are computer enhanced to make her appear to have any talent whatsoever ( other than playing to the camera. She gets a A+ for that talent).
jbethallen actually, perez hilton was right on the money...melissa was trying to distract everyone from her singing with her inaapropiate attire. Didn't work.
I'm a Tre-Hugger and proud of it! I cannot stand the Manzo's anymore! Joe and Melissa's only purpose to come on the show was to take Teresa down out of jealousy! Jacqueline is a two faced puppet. As for Kathy, she should just give up the holier than thou act altogether!
Teresa we love, love, love you!
Ignore the negative comments...it's seems they think if they write enough of them everyone blog that it somehow makes Teresa look like a Saint...Not. Most ppl who come to the blog actually watch the show and form their own opinions and I think you and your family are enjoyable to watch when you're free of the Teresa drama. Good Luck on your music and your family.
Anything Teresa could have possibly said bad about any of them doesn't even come close to all the bad things they have all said about her behind he back!!! So all of them should get over it and move on to better fights.
I give you credit for owning up to your stuff with Theresa. You were not nice about her in the past, nor was your husband. At least, you owned up to it and settled it with Theresa. The bad things that were said were not nice or easy to deal with. However, if she apologizes, you need to let it go and move forward. If it doesn't stop and you don't get an apology, move on from her. Sometimes blood is not thicker than water.
i like the cousin of melissa shes the lady who says shes old school. you know ill tell you this . . . .life is short love one another, i see alot of catholic symbols do any of u go to church???god says love thy neighbour as thy self . . .turn the other cheek, to err is human to forgive devine sometimes we all need to b devine. when u marry someone, u marry their family . . . teresa is in a hard place right now stop picking on her or she could have a nervous break down. teresa if u read this or your friends do let me tell u something, when u see trash u dont like write about it on paper . .then throw it away in the garbage before bed (: its goneteresa that moment is gone . .every day is anew start you are not defined by your past actions but by your present actions. all that counts is the present lady love. melissa give her this advice and u too follow it. i loved your songs i wonder if you sing in church, you have a great voice but my god you could b settin gyourself up fpr failure all those people who try out for american idol??? i bellieve in fllowing your dreams so melissa write down what u wannt on paper put it on your mirror and read it every day pray a bout it actualize it anf visualize it. mellissa please please please forgive teresa and what she says shes jealous and wants her big brother back to spoil her i kno wits not right but she has an agressive husband ignore him just as u must ignore the old school guy with the mouth on him, i love his wife but not him he stirrs up crap. its wonderful when people stand by you but honey put yourself out of the box for a minute and think and put yourself in teresas shoes visualize her with that man . . . shes changed hasnt she??? its cus of him he is controlling i was with a man just like him please i beg u melissa LOVE TERESA GIVE HER ALL THE LOVE SHE NEEDS SHES BEGGING FOR IT. don tellyour husband anything she says to you, i never tell mine what my pig of a sister in law says that would hurt him. who cares. in the end u regret the things u didnt do, maybe you could lov emore beautiful girl just pray for the strength and courage to love more it will come an dsoon your heart will b filled with lov eonly you have to learn and go to church and see a minister. loveis the answer not harsh words let your man read this he needs to his sisteris hurting like a little wounded mink, ie we have 4 ferrets lol andi love them sorry but they rcute, and so r u both. love is the answer you dont need to discuss past crap its OVER i dont want to watch u al fight i want to watch u love one another i have watched from the beginning and i miss th eold days where people loved one another i was happy you were added but the singing i dontcare for cus i am worried you will b let down, i want your heart to b full of love write a childrens book, get your kids to draw the pics :) the singing is so self promoting its what every one does but i know u can sing its just the show is not the place for that go to american idol where it will b treated with respect i feel ur singing is like an afterthought on this show andi want it to b front and centre, daddy loves u little girl remember he is but a whisper away in the spirrit world and he would say sing my songbird i know hes so proudof you and want s u to love open your heart u will get hurt but you are in ah appy place and teresa isnt. remember the good old days remember the love u all had remember for teresa to leave a bad situation if there isone she needs love and support i stayed with an abusive spouse cus my family wasnt there for me u are her sister love her please. to err is human to forgive divine you have the capasity to b divine. love to u melissa
I agree with you about some things, but not about loving Teresa. She won't allow any of them to love her. Sometimes GOD shows us we have to move away from some people, or they may bring out the worse in ourselves too. And Teresa could be that kind of person. I still think melissa and Joe may have to back away from her one day.
I agree. She has done nothing else but back stab everyone on the show---then she denies it. Hello it's on national TV. If you do it--You have to atleast own it. She has spoken ill about Caroline Manzo and her family, Jacueline, her cousin Kathy & her husband, sister in-law, she's even spoke poorly of her brother Joe. This all on national TV. And last night on "Watch what happens Live" with Andy Cohen--she made a statement that she misses Danielle. Come on Teresa has some serious issues. I like Caroline just cut people like that out of my life. Don't need it in my life.
