Melissa Gorga

Melissa thinks everything is fine with Teresa.

on Jun 18, 20120

Hi, everyone! Let me start by saying thank you all so much for your support with Rockstar. I’m so glad so many of you are loving it. You only got to see a little taste of it last week, but there is much more of Rockstar to come. You will see me do choreography for it with Cris Judd who is amazing. I can’t wait for you to see it! I also just got some really great news about working with some new, amazing people. I can’t share it yet, but I’m blessed to be doing something I love. I’m writing some new songs now that I can’t wait for you to hear!

Onto the episode…Well it starts with the construction going on at Teresa’s house. How beautiful is Audriana? I love her and miss those kids so much. I’m happy they are in a place where they can add on to the house and make it even more of their dream home. I also think it’s fair to say Teresa is wearing Milania’s shorts in this scene! LOL!

Some of you have asked if it bothers me when the framer tells my husband that Teresa wants to put the same carport on her house that we have. It doesn’t bother me at all. I know it would bother her if I was making a replica of hers, but I’m not like that. Joe is a little taken aback when he is told that Teresa is building a garage for her parents. Joe’s parents have been living in a house he owns for over 10 years. We sold it last year, but they will live there until Joe finds a perfect spot to build them a new one. Joe is the king of flipping houses. He buys and sells, buys and sells. This is what he does. Joe’s parents still live in that house, so I don’t think the garage Teresa was building was for her parents. I think the framer was confused. Teresa told me they were building a room for a nanny or an au pair, but I’m not really sure what they ended up doing with it.

As you claimed at the start of the show that you and Teressa are not in speaking terms why do you guys keep complaining that she doesn't tell you about about her finances. That will make sense your relationship isn't at the level. I certainly wouldn't.

Shame on you and shame on Joe. What he did to his parents is unforgivable.

teresa may never like you but she will accept you because you married in...that should be OK.  you two only have family in common.  i think you tell your sisters and all people stories about Teresa and beat her down and then wonder why doesn't she like me?   daaaah

The four of you need to go to counselling together.  There will always be issues between the two Joes, the two girls, and criss-crossed all the way around.  That's the only way to resolve it, if it can be at all.  Teresa is being an immature brat for wanting her brother to "be there" all the time.  Grow up.  You're not kids anymore. 

Does Teresa really expect her brother to visit her daily???  Ludicrous, and a bit odd and scarey. Kinda weird. Perhaps she is just afraid Joe G will leave her in one shape or form (going away or...) and she will need someone to fall on, because goodness knows she could never survive on her own.. 

Melissa and Joe seem to have a solid relationship, but Joe, tone it down a bit with the sex stuff, it makes you look cheap.  That is something for behind closed doors and he who brags so much has nothing to brag about.


But seriously, the four of you should all do cuunselling TOGETHER.  There's a lot there and just changing one tire on a car with four flat tires doesn't make the other three all better.  Many, many issues.  Teresa needs to get over being a big girl, did she expect her brother to sleep in the spare room after she got married or what???  Too bad for the Guidice parents, Joe and Teresa should be ashamed of themselves for causing them pain at their age.  Grow up everyone!!!

Melissa, you and your beautiful family are sweethearts.  Keep doing what you are doing!  Ignore the negative!  I don't blame you for protecting your marriage and family.  As far as being on the show, you are an adult and do not need Teresa's permission to do so.  This show is called the Housewives of New Jersey not the Teresa show.  I would say I'm sorry about Teresa's financial situation but I'm not.  Joe and Teresa brought the situation on theirself and its obvious they have not learned from it.  I wish you all the best and congrats on 'Rockstar'.  Catch ya Sunday night!

I can't believe all these "bad girl Teresa lovers." Don't let them get to you Melissa. You and Kathy and Jacqueline and Caroline have more class than she does. Teresa is "batz" LOL

Yu make fun of Teresa every chance you get...from the start, your husband her brother calling her "garbage".  I will never forget that, and really teresa is a person who can forgive and she has because he is her brother...you should stop trying to make trouble!  Your husband is such a baby and I do mean baby, I have never seen a guy behave as he does.  I do think he is jealous of his sister and I do think and I am sorry to say this, he wishes he had a wife like her. Look how she took control and is working so hard to support and take care of her family.  I went to one of her book signing's there were 300 people there. She ws only to be there for 2 hrs. She stayed till 11:30 and was graceious as ever to everyone. So you see she cares about people and she cares about her family most of all...but you keep shooting her down...please grow up, your family needs an adult , god knows they have none yet.

Teresa is out of line when she tells her brother "why does he tell you everything?" Your brother's answer should be that his spouse comes before her. God says that your spouse comes first even before your children. She is jealous because she is not number one in his life anymore and she should not be number one over you. She needs to get over it and he needs to tell her that! YOUR SPOUSE COMES FIRST.

Melissa - you are a beautiful and very fortunate woman. You have a loving husband and adorable, well behaved children. I hope you are successful in your life's ventures. I also hope that you become too busy to remain on the show. I observe you to be as confusing as Teresa is, just in a different way. You are behind much of the angst and distance between Joe and Teresa, What you did to Teresa during this season was pretty nasty. You make nasty little comments, you flaunt your relationship with Joe. You tease your husband, then act as if he's just an animal. You jab at Teresa, then act as if you don't know what her problem is. One difference is that some of your success with Teresa is hurting someone. Joe is perfect for you because you can so easily control him, you're perfect for him because you are beautiful. So where does Teresa fit in there? (if your first thought was "nowhere", that says it all) Nobody can deny that she has issues. The woman is utterly delusional. I'd like your new atittude, if it was sincere. But I think you don't want to talk about it because it was taking away from you. That's fine. If she gets help, she can get herself under control. If she doesn't, she won't. Either way, if you both don't come to terms with yourselves, you're both going to be bitter, angry old women. My last reminder/thought is this -- we can actually see and hear you when you're on TV. Whether it's editing or not, there's a lot of nastiness there.

Forget the masses and stay true to yourself, Joe and your children.  Just ignore Teresa and the hateful followers.  Keep doing you.  I like you and Joe.

No, no, no.  Actually, the four of you should go for some family therapy.  Wouldn't that make sense?  There are issues between the girls and the men as well.  Get it together and get it all out.  Until the four of you can resolve your differences, there will be no resolution.  Even if the girls work it out, or the brother/sister thing, the others are lurking in the background waiting to sabotauge.  Go together as a foursome, and all will be well.

I, honestly don't think you realize that we, mature viewers see just as transparent you really are. Between, all the interviews (too many to even mention) bashing Teresa on TV AND in tabloids, you are worse than Teresa! Your husband should be ashamed about airing out NOT only his sister's private business, but mostly his parents. Who does that? RE: Teresa's shorts at HER HOME, she was at home, not a family/friend party with lots of other married men. Stop, please.

Melissa,    Just watched a rerun of  the reunion show.    Interesting, when Andy jokingly mentioned that you sang "wench" like me, not "wretch"  (singing Amazing Grace), Teresa said she thought it was cute.     She perceived him to be making fun of you - which he was, all of you -  and she defended you.      Coming from an American-Italian family, I feel the only way to end this type of disagreement between relatives is just to go forward without even trying to make sense of the past.    Isn't this exhausting for all of you.    She may not be blameless but neither are you.

Melissa, let me first say... always be true to God, your family and to yourself most of all. I have really enjoyed seeing you, Joey and your kids; your family has been a wonderful addition to the RHONJ series. Hope to keep seeing you and your beautiful family each season.

 

I believe both Teresa and Joey need to sit perhaps with their parents and really talk about things thoroughly. From what has been privy to us viewers, the problem lies mainly within Teresa's denial of HER role in all the (Gorga) family drama and animosities. True, she has been going through a lot but honestly she is in great denial of what she has done to keep the feud going on and on... little does she realize it has a lot to do with her husband, Joe as well. Joe feeds her flames. Let's be real, he does!  She blames you a lot for the distance between she and Joey, she resents you for coming in between their once perfect relationship. Teresa needs to come to terms that you and your children are Joey's top #1 priority, not her anymore. Maybe some day she will get it. Teresa isn't a bad person, but just really detached from the truth. I seriously hope for the sake of your children and parents that you all are able to work through this someday, and soon. 

 

Keep being supportive and encouraging. Keep an open heart, always keep your head up and be that Rockstar that you are girl. ;) 

 

All the best.

Belle

After reading everyone's comments on here, it doesn't appear you have many fans. hmmmmm, wonder why? I can't imagine anyone buying into your little fake number you protray in your single interviews. Trust me, everyone sees right through you. You'll be here today and gone tomorrow. It's not if, but when. You worked your way into RHNJ for one reason only.......to try your best to show Tre up, but sadly it's backfired on YOU!! Tre will always come out the winner and you the loser.

I never even liked Teresa, but because of you I really am starting to feel sorry for her being ganged up on like this.  You're supposed to be her family.  #TotallyTransparent

Italian families are tough to say the least to marry into.......Teresa seems to be jealous of you and not really knowing it.  From the beginning.  It is like those mothers that view nobody is good enough for their sons.  I had a very close relationship with my only brother and when he got married I felt abandoned in a way because wife who was friendly when they were dating, became distant and kept my brother it seemed away from the whole family.  As I grew older and had family my own I realized that my brother played big role in not coming around and well, it was petty and childish of me to make his wife the bad guy.   In the long run Teresa is going through allot that she does not really understand I believe and denial of her own culpability in the fighting going on.  It seems sad to me because life is short, and no one is remembered by the money they had, the homes they lived in, etc.  People are remembered by their hyphen in life....born../....   .-    died......./.  What they stood for, the countless un-nameless acts and what they did when no one was looking.   They don't put pockets in caskets.    Leaving it for loved ones seems to cause families to break up... trust me I am a nurse and have seen this occur when loved on dies.  Keep singing, maybe write something for Teresa and her brother, couldn't hurt and it would be something to leave behind positive for your children and family.....Sincerely, Jill

All I can say is your sure know how to stoke a fire and run away. As far as I'm concerned , all your suscess you OWE to Teresa. If she wasn't on this show first, you wouldn't be where you are today. You goated all the women into being against Teresa and now you're trying to take the high road. Kinda sucks Melissa.

Melissa u r something else. U did start the season with comments like "we pay our bill". That right there was wrong. Then u say "Thank u Jesus" any chance u get. Ur actions really don't reflect that of a practicing Catholic. I was never team ANYONE. But all ur actions have changed my mind. I don't think Tre is always right, she is a flawed human being, like we ALL are. But I seem to want to route 4 her because of all the constant bashing, hate, staged conversations. Who has a compact available to primp while sitting in front of their porch, so not believable. U seem to want to b distracted from the real emotion of the conversation, so yeah ur over IT, just like u said. I just cringed when u commented about having life insurance on Joe in the bad acting warehouse scene. I don't believe u were actuallly jealous of Tre personally, but I think u wanted part of her experiences. So u did copy, a lot. That is not bad but at times it can b annoying. The whole gloss over/denial of the Danielle contact at the S3 reunion, WOW.... I have to believe that a TAPE does exist!! I do understand u don't owe anybody the TRUTH, but one day u will have to answer to the ONLY person in the world that matters, our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ... I will end and say that I will pray for u and ALL ur family!

I think your all completely ignorant and it is mind blowing that your all millionaires.Teresa is never gonna get it b/c she is simply to dumb to. As in she is not smart. You and your husband are obnoxious and self absorbed. I hope this was all worth it so you could be on TV. I am so bored with this family fued because it is really stupid. Your all pissed off at eachother but I still have no idea why

I can't believe Joe told the entire world his parents business...Also your heading was everything is fine I have to wonder if it wasn't Teresa would you have condoned what happened to her with Jaqueline and Caroline??

if my husband was paying for his parents' accommodation, neither he and never me would even mention that to friends leave alone on national TV.....i hope his parents get to brag about the sacrifices they made to raise Joe up ...Bravo owes this to them for airing it...also, I never gossip with my helps (people whom I am paying to do jobs for me) more so about my family.......and also could you sing one song without the auto mode on? its disrespectful towards a lot of people who can actually sing

Melissa,

   I hate that your family has to endure the rift with your husband's sister.  Families should be there for one another and not run each other down but, I know it happens to a lot of families.  Even the closest of families can find themselves torn apart with misunderstandings but, your's seems to be torn apart by jealousy.  Teresa is so jealous of you and your relationship with Joe.  I'm not sure why that is.  She should just be happy that her brother found someone who loves him the way you do.  She should want to get along with you if nothing else but for your children and her children.  Maybe someday she'll open her eyes.  I sure hope so!

   I do have one problem with the last episode.  When you guys were all sitting on the steps and Kathy was talking about Teresa and the issues at hand, you ignored her.  You have to remember that Kathy doesn't have but a handful of people she can talk to about it.  She's in the same boat as you.  Just let her talk and get it off her chest because, she's done the same for you!  Good luck with everything!

Sorry "Savannah Nichole" viewer, you just can't mislead everyone and expect no one to rebuttal! Yes, Bravo called Melissa to be on the show but that's a play on words like all of Melissa's suspicious maneuvers joining the show. No side denies that Melissa sent in MANY times and ways to Bravo to get on the show. She was relentless. YES, they did contact her to be on, but after TONS of her correspondence trying to get on. Of course the call to "bring her in to be interviewed" would come from them! Even Melissa doesn't rebuke that because she can't, it's out there. And as for she contacting Teresa right away after she joined, another play on words. When you are being hired, you go through weeks of correspondence, weeks of interviews, and re-interviews and they bring you in a lot to see if you are a match for the show before you SIGN the contract. Both sides have confirmed that. Melissa didn't contact Teresa at all during the weeks of negotiatings. Yes she called Teresa shorty after she SIGNED the CONTRACT- get it. All that time went by in negotiations where Melissa never told Teresa she had finally gotten the call from Bravo, c'mon! That's just crazy and very telling if you are honest with yourself. And yes, Teresa already knew, through Bravo/Andy. Teresa even said that herself so all of your points were ludicroius and didn't tell us anything we didn't know, but they mislead for intent. None of it matters, I agree Melissa doesn't have to tell Teresa anything she is doing in her life. But I think any reasonable person thinks it odd for Melissa not to contact her sister in law during those weeks she was in talks with joining a show she was already on. That right there speaks volumes, and I couldn't disagree more, Melissa has done nothing but create,stir, and nurture all of this mess we see today. She has absolutely ruined the last years of The Gorga Sr's lives, and that is where my empathy lies...with them.She and joe Gorga might as well have buried his parents,,,all for fame. Shame on them both. And airing their monies this week for "show". Doesn't surprise me. When they are gone, they are going to have a lot of years left together, absolutely sitting in what they did to his parents and his sister.

 @houseofmirrors

 I like your post. I think, that's what happened here. Teresa was close to Joe so when he got married and had a family of his own she didn't like it. You can really see that. She says Melissa is jealous, of what I want to know. Teresa can't see past her own thoughts. She also strikes me as the type who will only befriend someone who agrees with her.

RDaniels

 @JanicePrado

 I agree and disagree, yes Melissa may not be on the show if it weren't for Teresa but in the same thought, I don't think Teresa helped her cause she didn't want her on the show so how do we really know if Melissa would've made it or not? As far as Melissa goating the girls into being against Teresa, don't think so. Caroline doesn't strike me as the type that lets anyone tell her who to like and we've seen Jacqueline in the past be true to her friends when no one else liked them. So, I think things have happened that we don't know and Teresa has dug herself into her own whole. Personally, I wish they would move on, This show has become the Guidice and Gorga show instead of RHONJ

 You said it! However, I don't think they are all millionaires. I think they are in debt and alot of it. I'm bored too. I couldn't careless who brought sprinkle cookies or whose house is bigger or who copied what. Who cares. All I know is they are a bunch of bored people who need to get over themselves. I think, New Jersey is about in need of a full clean up like the New York girls got.

 @louise123  You said It Girl Did you watch WWHL when Andy said it took eleven months for Teresa to finally agree to be on the show?? He said she was in she was out back and forth...which means we know it took atleast that long for that contract..of course Melissa didn't go back and forth she wanted on!! She had no worries on what it would do to her family or Joey's!

 I know hon, the people I feel the most sorry for out of all of this are The Gorga Sr's. Melissa's husband normally would have been the oneperson to stop this from happening to his own parents, but unfortunately, Joe Gorga wants fame as bad as she does, and had no problem setting Teresa up to a he said "fall" so he could get his. In fact, he's enjoying it. No wonder his father doesn't respect him, oh wait, Joe pays for their house. What a low life for saying that. I'm glas Teresa called him out on that in her blog. I'm sure she's not surprised though.  He has a lot of years to sit in this in the future. I feel awful for The Gorga Sr's.
