There you have it. I don’t feel I need to waste my time and give you a blow-by-blow of what happened in this episode. I think there were far too many “kawinkydinks” and the writing is on the wall. I know by now you all know me, you know my family, and you know my values. I live my life by three words: trust, loyalty, and respect. I have forgiven and forgotten many things, but I will not let anyone, whether it is an aunt, cousin, sister, mother -- I don't care who it is -- ruin my family. I am a mother and a wife, and that comes first with me. I have to protect my family, and if that means staying away from negativity, then that's what I will do. I would do the same if it was my own sister.
At this point I think I only have one word to describe what has happened and what’s to come: D-E-L-U-S-I-O-N-A-L.
don't come between family. You married into Joe's family and you so far don't seem to understand the meaning of becoming part of his family. Get over yourself and grow up!!!!!!
Melissa and Joe! Just let ignorance enjoy their bliss. Theresa and Joe are so ignorant they actually compliment each other. You and Joey are great people. You cannot win with people like Joe and Theresa they don't hear anything but their own voices. I wish you happiness and love and that your music career takes off like fireworks. You are sweet, pretty a good mom and Melissa I LOVE SPRINKLE COOKIES...Good luck to you and Joey. He is so funny and love able. A damn good guy.
I think you guys did come on to hurt her because you talked to Danielle at a moment of hate (which you admitted) and you weren't talking when she came on the show. it's so obvious that you r hurt because she was ignoring you guys and didn't care for you after stuff built up but you came on to hurt her and you guys are all making her look bad by things she says and has always said as jokes. how the heck do you expect her to win if she acts like nothing than it's not bothering her and if she acts sad she's a victim. she can't win! you and joe are fun but you acted like victims. Joe is the one in the start of the first season to start the fight at the christening and then he started the second fight with the going to find someone else richer comment. you guys are fueling everything!
Don't pay any attention to Teresa's paid stalkers and her friends. You & the other ladies came off as normal people with beautiful families. Middle America saw through Teresa's lies & meanness. We didn't buy a lick of what she was trying to sell.
Melissa you and Joey need to sit down with your in laws(his mom and dad) and talk set the record straight with them for your kids and forget about teresa and her ass of a husband
Your selling or losing your house so your moving away? Yay move far, far away so your no longer a HWONJ!! You bore me with your flicking your hair, and wetting your lips like a cat in heat. T is no angel but your no innocent either. You made me wish Danelle was back last night.
I don't know how you've managed to do it, but you've made me like you and I really didn't think I would when you first started on the show. You and your family and Kathy and her family have been through a trial by fire if ever there was one, and I think you've all acted with class, humor and intelligence almost all the way. You're smart to keep your kids away from that nonsense. Your husband and yourself may have to tolerate some of it because you are adults and you are family, but your kids shouldn't have to get hit with that. It's bad enough that your nieces have to live with it. Keep your good heart and keep up the good work.
Not buying it, little Miss Innocent! No, it's not the Teresa Show. But honey you wouldn't have a blog to write if not for your connection to her. Ever hear the expression, don't bite the hand that feeds you???
I am AMAZED at how people are willing to "spin" the truth so that it favors Teresa. What gives??? I find so few redeeming qualities in her, I wouldn't buy anything she promotes if I needed it to save my life! If they REALLY listened to everything in all 3 reunions they could not possibly think that T didn't have as much to do with that set up as Kim did. Poor Kathy gets disrespected constantly by T & J; no one but Richie & Rosie stand up for her. T tells us the sky is green & the grass is purple and will not back down at any cost, no matter how many people show her the blue sky & green grass. It's frustrating to me - I won't watch if she's on next season. I'm sorry but I really think she's intelligently deficient or damaged somehow. She can't recognize reality.
Melissa, I watched you last night on "watch what happens live" with Andy. I must say that you looked very pretty. Not a ton of make-up on and very natural. You seemed totally different (from the reunion) you were happy and optimistic about Tre & Joey mending their relationship. I truly hope that happens.
I do want to say that you were hard to watch on th reunion. You were mean, you didn't defend your parents when Kathy insulted BOTH of them. You shoud have said something. You really are not the victim. I believe that someone set Teresa up. Jac and Car. could have just as easily told you what was going on with Angelo. And really who cares if this guy does know you? Or where you worked. You should have said "where DO I know you from" and he would have had to say, At club so & so remember you danced there, then YOU could have set him straight! Right there in front of all the women and America. Then all the drama could have been avoided. I hope you Tre. Joe & Joey can find a way to become a family again. I really enjoyed the scene's with you & Tre when you were getting along. However, Kathy needs to go. She looked ridiculous rolling her eyes and making snide remarks. She & Rosie were way out of line. Bravo needs to cut them loose.
I wish Bravo would cut Melissa and Joe Gorga loose. If decency and karma prevailed, THAT would happen.....what horrible people.
no true emotion that is all I got about you cold to the core, OH unless it is for and about yourself then you come to life. You do love the kids no doubt about that. Joey seems to cry out for attention exposing himself , cross dressing, too much talk and you always brushing him away sometimes when you over talk about how great you and his relationship is , is more for tying to convince everyone and yourselves when it really isn't.
melissa I have to tell you that, i am on Tre's side. I understand thate she knew something was going down, however younever bothered to realize that he was actully protecting you and trying to keep a realationship with you and her brother. why else would she pull you aside and try to talk to you abou what happened. Also Jaqulyn knew wat was going to happen and sh did set Tre up. you had better watch how close you get to her she is trying to bring Tre down and willgo to no expnse to do so..Yes i dont like her husband, however it is her husnabd. I think that you are s full of it sometimes that you just ignore all of it so that Joe your husband won't hang out with her. I do think you are hiding a lot more than what you are wiling to say.
Tre is obviously jealous of you, but not because you are beautiful ( and you are) and not because of your money. She is jealous of the attention that she used to get from her brother that now goes to you. Not in a sick way. She just obviously misses that attention. IF her husband is cheating on her, and her brother always made her feel "special" then that girl is completely lost now.i I feel bad for her. I don't in any way condone any of the malicious things she has done to you and it is no way an excuse for her behavior, but some people are just not articulate and express their anger in actions of rebellion instead of words I believe Tre is one of them. So, hate her if you want, you are more than entitled for what she has done- but for the sake of your husband and your children maybe looking at her this way will help you to tolerate her and not trust her at the same time.
I don't think Melissa hates her, but she's angry with her, and rightfully so. Teresa will not say "I did this (or said this) and I'm sorry I hurt you." Instead she says "It was a joke" or "you weren't supposed to know."
I don't care if you and Tre call each other every name in the book and argue like 2 year olds, you are both adults so have at it. What I do care about is your claim to love family and your nieces more than anything....then you turn around and make the most disgusting comment about your nieces and how you are afraid they will bully your daughter at school? That was beyond reproach!
You have so much more class than Teresa, who has absolutely none. You are doing the right thing by moving and keeping your children away from toxic people.hope your Joe stays away from his sisterhe is no good for him.
I would put money that Kim D. was the one texting Jacqueline at the Poshe.. which proves Jac didn't know anything before those texts... if she did.. she would have told Melissa before the fashion show and that's why Kim D. DIDN'T tell Jacqueline beforehand.
You are a phoney balony. I can't believe your the same person that first came on this show, WOW have you changed!!! How come your no longer crossing your self and blowing kisses to Jesus and talkig about him all the time? Do you still believe? You even got the the Reality Housewives dress code down perfectly along with the Reality Housewives three pounds of make up, you changed so so fast, usually it takes a couple of years for that to take effect. Congatulations, your a real hosewife now!
looks like you are the only D-E-L-U-S-I-O-N-A-L one on this show. Your mad at Tre, Kim D clearly stated Tre didn't know what was about to go down only that something was going to go down. Kim D admitted that Jac and Caroline knew that you was the target. Why aren't you mad at them, only Tre, looks to me like its convenient. Instead of going on a victim tour you should go on an apology tour for accusing Tre. Your husband can apologize to Kim D for the way he treated her, but cant apologize to his sister for the name calling he did and stirring up the pot all season. You went on the show and destroyed your husbands family and Tre's friendship of many years, and for what 15 minutes of fame.
Making up stuff does not change the truth. Kim D actually said Teresa knew something was going to happen and she knew Melissa was the target. Caroline or maybe just Jacqueline only knew KIm D was annoyed with Melissa for promoting another salon. That is what Kim D said. Teresa's so called fans sound just like her. Hmmmm
1love1heart unique-mom @ exact........So why didnt they tell melissa, why isnt she mad at them? They knew and sat there waiting all excited, pretending they wasnt. Its all BS.
1love1heart Completely false. Kim D said Tre knew something was going to go down just like the rest of them but not what. The only ones that knew nothing was Melissa and Kathy. Watch the reunion again. The bald guy did an interview stating that Tre had nothing to do with the set up. Looks to me like Melissa owes Tre an apology, she has no proof to what she is accusing Tre of. Kim D and the bald guy both said Tre didn't know what was going to go down point plank.
unique-mom 1love1heart Thats why Melissa needs to watch her back because Caroline and Jac ARE NOT her friends...if they were they wouldnt of let her walk into the firing squad. I wouldnt want them as friends....They cant be trusted.....Not too mention Melissa jumped the gun and accused Tre to setting it up, which she clearly didnt. Yes she did know something was up and should of told Melissa that way if she choose not to go or at least be aware so she could be prepared. As far as Caroline & Jac are concerned I would not have them in my life if I were Melissa. They are two-faced and are not friends of Melissa at all.
Bostongurl unique-mom 1love1heart
I think they beat Teresa to the punch. Caroline and Jacqueline had been good friends to her, and she turned around and said nasty things about Caroline and her family in her cookbook. Jac was going through a lot between her little guy, Nick, and Ashley being a waste case for a year, but Teresa never showed any concern for that. True friends can tell when something is bothering you, and they actually look, and ask what and how they can help. Teresa didn't do that. It was all about her.
unique-mom so true. And in the bathroom, she wouldnt even listen to Tre, she was to fast to call her husband, she didnt want to hear what Tre said, she wanted to cause drama, and she did. She hates Tre, because Tre steals the show, she wants to be #1....If so many people are accusing you of being a stripper then there is something to it. And nobody cares if you was. I could not care less....But stop making people out to be liers if they are not. The truth will come out with proof, one way or the other. And as for your husband, if I was Tre, I would never speak to him again. He never wants to hear her side of the story, he likes his fairy book life...
You are dumb and blind to believe that Teresa set you up, if anything, it is the one who you think are your friends that actually could have warned you but didn't, that would be Caroline and Jackie, don't you watch the show? it is so obvious that they were forewarned but they were going to work it to make Teresa look like the bad one. Honestly, I think that you are jealous of Teresa and because she is so crazy to react to all the trivial stuff, you will do every and anything to keep her and her brother at war. You said that you will work hard to keep the relationship and one incident where she was actually trying to protect you, you turned on her and kept her brother away from her. shame on you. If you really want to protect your marriage, as you said, you would get Jackie, Caroline and Kathy out of your ear, stop talking about Teresa and try to mend the broken fences. You swore her off, wow, shame on you, that was really mean and immature.
valjem Agreed,,,,Caroline & Jac could have warned her but didnt...that speaks volumes. Melissa needs to stay away from both of them
Melissa, all you had to do was go back to your seat at the fashion show and keep your mouth shut. End of "set up", and total "plot" failure. But you were too eager to create a permanent wedge between your husband and Teresa to do the smart thing. Really think about who was setting up who. Why didn't your new best bud Jacqueline warn you if she was getting these mysterious texts from her secret source?
oldtimer She actually did. She didn't make a big deal of the bald guy at all until Teresa approached her about him. Melissa really didn't seem to be bothered by him at all. She said she recognized him but didn't remember him and sat down for dinner with everyone else. It was Teresa who kept pushing the issue.
I don't think you're very bright and I do think you whisper many, many nasty things about Teresa in your husband's ear. We all heard you do it on the last episode of the season. Caroline and Jacqueline knew Kim was going to do something, too, but you let them get away with it because of your hatred for Teresa.
You wanted a reason to start a fight with Theresa. I feel sorry for your husband Joe. Because of your actions he not only lost his sister but also his parents!
They need to start a new series...The Narcissistic Housewives. They have Vicki from OC, Teresa, Jill Z, NeNe and Adrianna from Miami.
Mel, I respect this blog. This being said 1. You did hurt T with the whole Danielle incident. After this you ,joe and T seemed to finally being able to put all hurt behind you and seemed to have a true family relationship. I was so happy seeing this because I feel family and true good friends are what get you through this world. Now the night of the posh show, Kim D said everyone jac, Caroline and T knew something was going to happen. She also said T didn't have any idea what. Jac was getting texted the whole show. She has never said who told her what. Caroline also knew something was going down. THEY ALL KNEW yet you talk to jac, Caroline. You chose to believe T. Knew more then she did. You seem and maybe I wrong to want to believe the worst in T. In the reunion you could see the husband you love so much want his sister back. You also could see it in T. I just can't understand how T took all the blame and it was jac who told you it was her. She forgave you about Danielle. Don't you think you at least owe her a sit down with just you. I have 5 sisterinlaw's we have had plenty of fights but when all is said and done we sit down and talk. Family and friends are what makes life worth living. Not money. Your husband has 1 sister and if you love him as much as you seem to do. Relive Kim D set you up other then Kathy they all knew something was going down but not what exactly. Talk to T and help her and joe because you do seem to care about family and life is to short. We loss someone this year suddenly, I thank god I made peace with this person. Other family members didn't and they live with regret again life is to short. I hope you will take his to heart and relive everyone this season see to hurt someone on the show. It's a show your family is real.
Melissa, you and Joe have done everything you could do to try and mend issues with Teresa. When one person can manipulate ones parents like teresa has your Joe's, he is fighting a loosing battle. I can only pray for Gia, Audrianna and Gabriella. I hope they can know how they were loved by you and their uncle joe. You two take the high road and with the history of these Bravo shows breaking up marriages, please don't fall victim to it. You have a great family. P.S. Stay away from Kim D.
Can you and your fans and your family explain to me how an ex-coworker or boss coming up to you and asking "hey do you remember me" cause all of this? Whether you served drinks in a bikini or danced a curtsy while serving drinks in a bikini does not warrant someone setting you up. If any of your ex-coworkers come and speak you should be happy, I can only assume your only job sense you've married is being a housewife. For the life of me I can't see why that has brought out so much drama. I am thinking its because you want to make Teresa look bad. If my ex-coworker/boss came up to me I would simply say Hi, yes how are you doing and keep it pushing really you make yourself look guilty.
Hi Melissa! I agree with "methinks" for my mother was the same way with her brother's wife.You can never win with that kind of sickness. It's too twisted and wierd, and so beyond what you could comprehend, it could only be understood by the likes of Dr. Phil and his TEAM.
Move on with your life and family, and move far, far away.
I worry for her children tho, for between her and Joe DOUCHBAG they don't stand a chance!
Her time will come, you can be sure, and don't you DARE be there to pick her up! She didn't even appreciate (nor recognize) that you left with her and douchbag after that big fight!
She is a narcissistic, self-absorbed sociopath, and is hell bent on her own distruction. Don't you let her bring you down with her, for she will surely try, then stab you in the back again after that.
She is not worthy of your friendship, love, or loyalty. People like her only see other potentional acquaintances as new targets or new Patsys that she can manipulate until she tires of them.
If she doesn't wind up in prison, or the looney bin, she will someday be a lonely old lady, and THEN who will she make fun of their imperfections to, when she's old, ugly, and wrinkly? Old age doesn't play favorites, it will catch up with her (if she lives that long). and for all of the digs she's made at people for having ANY kind of work done, she will then be playing a hypocrites' role if she ever has anything done.
You keep going girl, fly high and proud for you have risen like a phoenix in this mess and always remained poised and lady-like. Your dad would be proud!
Melissa you and your husband have been a great addition to the show. I really hope that Teresa doesn't come back next season, but OH WELL… Bravo won't let go of the dram and train wreck that is TERESA. =/ You are an awesome lady and keep your head held high. The best to your family and in your career journey. Unfortunately, like Caroline so eloquently put it… you can't walk away, no matter how far you move SHE will always be part of your life. A word of advice… Remain the better person, learn to tolerate but always keep your guard up!
Loved watching you Melissa!! Hope that you will continue to be blessed with that awesome husband, adorable children and all that is precious to you!! Hope to see you next season!! Keep on singing!!
Why aren't you mad at Jacqueline and Caroline? they knew just as much as Theresa did! Kim told everyone. It's soooo funny how you all said wait for the reunion and you will see what Theresa did, but it only proved that if Theresa set you up, so was Jacqueline and Caroline.
You are a fabulous LADY! Stick with jacqueline, Caroline and Kathy...you guys are REFRESHINGLY WONDERFUL TO WATCH.
Lynden did you watch the reunion????? Caroline & Jac KNEW something was going down and Mel was the target....THEY ARENT HER FRIENDS...WAKE UP PEOPLE. Im also beginning to think Melissa isnt the perfect little angel...shes very motivated by MONEY...and if someone hotter/more money came along...she may kick Joey to the curb...just saying
You and your husband are the best!!! If you guys EVER come to the San Francisco area again I invite you guys to my home for an awesome home cooked Italian meal. My husband would love to party with Joe!!
Take care and hope you are back next season!!!
I'm actually beginning to think Teresa has abnormal feelings for your husband, and is incensed at the idea of him loving another woman, period.
It's clear she loves him, but she doesn't seem to be able to accept that he has his own family, and they take precedence over her.
That being said, you'll never be able to win with her, because Teresa sees you as "the competition". If she doesn't get professional help, she'll never be able to refrain from doing everything she can to push you out of her brother's life. And as a result, her husband, probably sensing her abnormal feelings for her brother, will never be able to stop belittling him.
It won't ever get better, for any length of time.
You and Joe need to move on with your lives, and keep you distance from Teresa's family. Nothing good will ever come of it.
I know my suggestion seems outrageous. But, it would explain her inability to adequately explain how her brother has hurt her, and why she can't accept you and the marriage. It would also explain why her husband hates your husband, in multiple ways.
Obviously, Jackie knew about what will happen at the Posch party. So, if she is Melissa's friend, then why not alert Melissa to what will happen instead of continuously texting. The same applies to Caroline.
Melissa, these are not your friends. just opportunists who are after the limelight just like your sister-in-law!
