Let's Fix the Gorgas!

Melissa was happy to see Joe really try to work through his issues with Teresa.

Hi, Lovers! Hope you’re all enjoying this beautiful summer. The weather has been great and I’m so excited for the 4th of July this week. I like it being in middle of the week, because it’s an excuse to take the whole rest of the week to just relax in the sun! I already warned Joe, no working on Thursday and Friday. We will see if he keeps his promise!

I love to watch Jacqueline with her father. He seems so calm and sweet. They are a lot alike actually. Jacqueline is a really good listener, and he seems the same. By now you have all known Jacqueline for quite some time, and I think it’s obvious what a wonderful person she is. She cares and worries about everyone else’s feelings. She wants the best for everyone. I’ve grown to see how amazing she is and what a solid friend she truly is. I feel bad that she is drawn into our family issues. She has her own issues to worry about with Ashlee, and she has two little boys and husband to think about. It must be extremely frustrating for her to have to deal with all the extra drama. I feel for you, Jacqueline.

Let’s talk about Zia Maria. Kathy’s mother is amazing. She has truly been through so much in her life, and she never complains about anything. She is one of the sweetest, most kind-hearted women I know. She had an unfortunate experience as a child, and I could never imagine how it must have felt for her as a little girl. I love the way she never held a grudge against her siblings. I know she always calls my father-in-law to go to the market and to spend time together. She is a woman that never cared about having material things and just wanted to take care of her children. God bless her. I love her so much. I know Teresa tried to insinuate that Kathy is just here for Rosie now because of the show. I knew Kathy and Rosie way before the show and have always seen nothing but pure love and a great relationship between the two of them. The first time I met Kathy was ten years ago at Rosie’s house. They were all making dinner together. Kathy and Richie have accepted who Rosie is, and I don’t believe that Kathy would ever treat Rosie badly. Not for a minute. Do I think they used have arguments? Of course. Rosie is very impulsive and needed time to come to terms with her life and who she is. I’m sure that put her on edge at times and I’m sure they had their arguments as sisters. But who doesn’t? The important thing is that no matter what they will be there for each other and support each other. Siblings fight, that’s normal. But they don’t hold grudges, they make up after, and they always wish the best for one another. It is a beautiful thing to see a united family.

I called Joe before he went to therapy, because I just wanted him to approach it in a positive light rather than something he felt awkward doing. I wanted him to go in thinking, “This is it, we are going to fix this.” I thought he was so cute, like a little nervous boy waiting his turn to speak to the therapist. I loved to see him like that, because it showed that he really wants to make this better. I love when he said, “Let’s fix the Gorgas!” Teresa’s talk with the therapist didn’t surprise me too much. Of course it was all about me. She didn’t say one negative thing about herself or her brother. Just me. Yes, I’m used to it by now, and I really just don’t know what to say anymore. I think it is very obvious that I have never been the problem here. She makes me the problem and she constantly blames me for everything. I guess she doesn’t want the world to think that it’s her family or her relationship with her brother that is failing, but instead the problems are because of someone who is not part of the original family (like me). Well I know a lot of you are frustrated with it, and I am too. I am trying to stay positive and just remember what is really important.

I want to thank you so much for all your supportive tweets throughout the show last night. It really does mean a lot to me and Joe that you all see what’s going on, and your tweets just make me smile. Thank you!ROCKSTAR is on iTunes right now! Go and get it! Here’s the link:

I have the cutest “Wifey” and “Thank you Jesus” shirts on my website! All my appearances that are coming up are on my website too. Hope to meet you at one of them!

Dina: What am I Doing Here?

Dina Manzo explains what it's like to sit on the reunion couch.

Hi all, 

I kind of meant what I said on that couch -- this show is so f---ed up. As I sit and watch the reunion, I wonder what goes through people's head sometimes. Bobby literally spitting on me as he screams at a friend of 10 years, Jim whipping out his files and then of all things says I have a fat ass, LOL! For what? Fame? I literally sat there saying to myself time and time again, "What the hell am I doing here?" Again, not ever saying I'm too good, but just different. There is something really beautiful that came out of this though...I am seeing some real proof of my practices. Take a look

Sending you a ton of love for your support! 

Dina xoxo
