Melissa gives her dating advice -- ask and you shall receive!

on Apr 30, 20120

That’s why I wrote How Many Times. Every word in it describes my relationship with Joe. I worked really hard on it in the studio with Corte for a couple weeks and couldn’t wait for Joe to hear it. It was the second song I ever wrote, and I wanted to write it to him. I loved watching our dinner together. We are so lucky to be able to play off one another the way we do. We have a relationship that is hard to find, and I thank Jesus for it every day! When I tell him I am living the life that I have always dreamed of, I mean that from the bottom of my heart. I’m in an incredible marriage with someone I love who is also my best friend. I have always wanted three children, and I have them. And not only do I have them, but they are all healthy and beautiful. The list goes on, but I’m just happy and proud of the life we have made together, and it was nice to be able to capture it in this song.

 



OK, I have to address the scenes that night at Jacqueline’s house when Teresa came in and apologized. I was happy that she was making an attempt to say that she was wrong. When I said, “We’ll take one for the team,” I meant exactly that. If she has to throw names and “jokes” in there to help the book sell, then so be it. I’m fine with it, happy to help, now let’s all move on. Honestly, I’m so over the cookbook drama. It’s just old news now, and it didn’t really bother me in the first place. I supported Fabulicious, tweeted about it, and wish her the best of luck with this book and all of her cookbooks. If it bothered me, I wouldn’t have gone to her book signing and bought ten copies with Joe. That was never my issue with Teresa nor was the question of if she was supporting my music. I am not even sure why she is apologizing publicly for not supporting my music, when that was NEVER an issue. The issue is what she says about my marriage and my loyalty to my husband. I have been clear about that, and you will see it addressed in next week’s episode.

I love your relationship with your husband! I admire your patience with your sister in law. And your song for Joe was very touching and genuine.

First off you are nothing more than Studio talent...give me a break..if you had to sing LIVE you would fall flat..secondly...why are you trying to act so innocent this season?..you should be ashamed of yourself in your treatment of your husbands sister..period..I look at the pictures of him and his family BEFORE you came along and they all look so happy..now they do not look happy at all. Yet somehow it is ALL her fault and not yours...LOL...and JOE, Kathy and Rosie, should be ASHAMED of themselves for talking so much crap about Theresa behind her back..THAT IS YOUR FAMILY PEOPLE..NOT AN INLAW..but BLOOD..Shame on all of you...

Do us all a favor and STOP singing!!! Just because you have a recording studio in your basement does not make you a GOOD singer.

When you sat down with Teresa to speak with her, you brought up "jail" and "bankruptcy." Again, you were being passive aggressive and knew that those issues would get a reaction. The "bankruptcy" comment was just another dig on her financial status. You love reminding her (and the all the viewers) that she has financial problems and you don't. I also noticed that you omitted the word "bankruptcy" from your description of your and Teresa's conversation when talking to Caroline and company. I'm not blaming you entirely for all the problems in the family. Teresa shouldn't have made the "gold-digger" comment, but you definitely contribute to it and you're no angel.

You are a very beautiful and intelligent lady. But, don't you think Teresa and yourself need to get over this issue. Yes, Teresa should have never said anything about your marriage. Don't you realize that the person your both hurting the most is your husband and the rest of your family.

I hope you and Teresa can work everything out and that you can realize that besides Kat, T and Dina....the rest of these women are jealous and miserable, especially Jacqueline. I would not shop at Posche if I had all the money in the world...hopefully Teresa sees that woman is as bad as Kim G.

I am SO happy you have joined the show! You and Joe remind me of my parents and it's so nice to see another amazing couple who have a solid relationship (my parents just celebrated their 29th wedding anniversary yesterday)! I love, love, love you and think you are one of the only intelligent housewives who can hold an argument, against a lunatic, no less. LOOOOVE! xx

I must say ...I am not a fan Melissa. I think you come across all sweet & innocent but I see right through that and so does Teresa and so do a lot of viewers. PLEASE as a catholic I am begging you to stop saying "Thank you Jesus"!!!!!! you are showy & in no way humble. Remember if it wasn't for Teresa you wouldn't be on this show & you would be nobody ...oh but you sing right?!??!

I totally love your relationship with Joe. Please do not let your 'twisted' sister in law bring you down. Your new friendship with Caroline is nice to see. I feel bad for Caroline because after all of these years she can see how bizarre Teresa truly is. I only watch this show because of you and Caroline. Keep being positive and I hope to see more family time with you, Joe, and your 3 beautiful children.

Melissa! I had my reservations about you but that sure changed after the fight with Theresa in the parking lot. You really let her have it! BRAVA! You were definitely sticking up for your marriage and I'm glad Theresa was blindsided by your boldness when you completely ripped into her for her actions. You're a class act...Team Melissa!

Melissa- keep being the good gal that you are- don't fight with teresa- it will get you nowhere- keep her out of your marriage- tell joe that anything she says in the future not to repeat to you- who needs it? better than that tell him to tell her- stop talking if you are going to say anything bad about my wife! then he doesn't need to hear it- by the way, your voice is sooo great- hope you get a hit soon- you are beautiful and fun- love the two of you on the show - ps teresa is soo jealous of you and joe- she should wear green dresses on the show! cause she is green with envy- that is what is pushing her bad behavior-

Melissa,

I know people have said on the internet and papers that you should stay out of a brother and sister relationship; however they forget husband and wife come FIRST above all things. So you and yours keep going. You and Joe have a great relationship and are great parents and I hope my husband and I can be just like you and Joe for years to come.

Melissa, You are a class act. The only issue I see is that you continue to try to communicate with Teresa who does NOTHING wrong. You and Joe are a cute couple and it shows how much you love each other. The only negative or stain on your relationship is Teresa. I know she is your brother's sister but sometimes you have to say ENOUGH.

TeamTeresa

In this one instance Teresa was wrong. However you seemed to take delight in bashing her with others. I have problems with my own sister-in-law but have learned to be nice and not complain about her because it's not worth it. I will say though that you are putting on an act. You are fake, not about your marriage, but about Teresa. If you guys got along before the wedding it makes sense that after you secured your husband you turned against his sister. You making Teresa out to be a horrible person will come back around. Karma.

Melissa - You can tell how much Joe and you are in love Ignore Teresa!!! She is jealous of Joe and your success. You have wonderful children that are well-behaved. You have great friends in Kathy, Jacqueline and Caroline plus your sisters. Stay positive even tho you have to hear the negative from Teresa. She is to into herself!

I think the viewers need to watch the first season and see how all you, Melissa did was talk bad about Teresa and bad mouth her non stop. Now you are the victim and so innocent. If you really want to make things better quit basking in the negativity with Caroline. It just makes you all look ugly.

Melissa, you have got to have only positive people in your life and lives of your children. I have had to remove family from my life who were toxic to my husband and he has had to do the same with his family. We have no drama in our life and I would not trade that for anything. Keep strong and walk away from negative energy. Love to you and the family. Beautiful children.

Teressa should be thankful Joe has you- You are a good wife and mother and a VERY patient sister-in-law- You do deserve an apology. However, you are not dealing with a rational person. It was very funny when T said you only look at things one way, while Teressa is the one who cannot see things from another perspective. Oy, keep trying to a certain point- But you know what, you can only do so much:)

Melissa - Luv you!! I'm so glad you're on the show. Stay away from Teresa - she's close to the edge and may become violent. She's very dumb and a big part of your problem with her is that she is not able to understand what you say to her. Just let her go on her way and keep her in your prayers.

I love you Melissa!!! You are so classy and diplomatic! I have to be honest when last season aired I didn't like you and Joe at all but now that all of America has had a chance to see the real Teresa...You rock! Love watching you guys on the tube! Can't wait for more drama!

You are such an amazing wife, mom, friend and all around person! You have the best sense of humor, and your very classy while having to deal with useless people. You have always been my favorite on the show and you've stolen the hearts of Kathy, Caroline, and Jacqueline now. They all see how crazy and delusional Terese is and how great of a person you are. I hope you and your family the absolute best, and the best of luck with your sister in law ;)

Oh my god... Are you and Joey 16 years old??... Seriously brothers and sisters talk smack all the time about spouses... Sisters and sisters talk smack all the time about spouses... Brothers and brothers talk smack all the time about spouses... Siblings are always the first friend, the first confidant, and yes the sounding board for each other when it comes to kids, spouses, jobs etc... If you think for one minute that you don't gripe to your sisters when you need an ear, then you are a liar... Difference here is your sisters aren't running back to Joey and telling him what you said... Joey cries back to you about what Teresa says may happen, which in reality happens alot.... Big whipty do you are married 7 years... People who have been married 30 years get fooled around on or fool around... Get a clue about the reality of life... As for Caroline, the woman is becoming a bigger and bigger trouble maker... She has always been the catalyst in fights and it is high time someone put her to the side...

You and Joe are the most adorable, hottest couple on TV. Fire breathing Teresa is seething with jealousy; everything she accuses you of doing, her meatball of a husband is doing. She wishes she has your talent and your loving marriage. Teresa's husband looks more and more disinterested in their marriage and brood week by week. Jail is probably a break from the life sentence he has with Scary Italian. Keep the faith sister; and that song? Just beautiful.

Melissa,

I have really grown to respect you this season. You take a lot of cheap shots from Teresa. Last season it was difficult to know your angle- but it's clear you love your husband and you are being a bigger person than I would be in dealing with Teresa. And at the party you really handled yourself incredibly well. Teresa comes across as a vengeful, bumbling, idiot. You came across as a well-spoken, intelligent, logical, loving person who was stuck having a fight with an idiot. Good luck!

Melissa, I can't believe how you and your horrible husband seem to have everyone fooled in America. You, your husband ,and Kathy came on this show with one motive to destroy Theresa and her family. It's a disgrace how disloyal you all are. It's so obvious that you're all jealous of Theresa's success! I feel so bad for Theresa she really loves her brother and he really doesn't care one bit about her. Hopefully she cuts you all out of her life,with family like you no one needs enemies! I feel bad for the children, they seem to really love each other. I think you and Joe are horrible to the core and wish you never were put on the show!

Melissa, I just want to say that I have so much respect for you. You have so much more self control then I. I would have flipped on Teresa. She has some serious issue. I was rooting for you as I watched you standup for yourself and your family. You have taken enough abuse from her and her husband. You are just as good, if not better then them and you deserve respect. You have handled Teresa with kid gloves long enough. I know your trying to keep the peace beacuse of the kids and your husband, however that doesn't mean you have to sit back and be Teresa's punching in the mean time. She looked classless and she was going off on you for no reason. She 's pissed you dropped presents at her kids school? WTH your the only thinking of the kids. She didn't even make sense. I wish you, Joe and your family the best. Keep sticking up for your self and your family. The public is seeing what a witch Teresa really is.

Girl face it, Teresa is the breakout star. Like other housewives shows everyone of them have one. The housewives of ATL --Nene; New York --Bethany; Beverly Hills --Lisa, and New Jersey -- Tre. This is her show sweetheart, not yours. You came on HER show to bring her down. Shame on you. She will get further in this than you ever will. Know your place.

Your thirst for fame is so sad. You talk a ton of trash about Teresa and her family. Very uncool. Even you laughing at other people's joke about them only show that you don't care about Joe's family.

I wanted to say that I love Melissa and Joe's relationship! They are a very beautiful couple and their children are angels! Very well behaved and cute as can be. A bit of advise: Don't let your sister-in-law get under your skin, she's just a hater, and no matter what you do she will not change the way she feels about you, so you keep doing what you're doing, being a great wife and mother, and let her eat her heart out! Yes your husband her sister, but she should not be acting the way she does, she is also quick to call you a bitch, which is inappropriate. I'm glad that you don't let her see you sweat, if you did, she will feel like she's winning, but compared to you she will be a LOSER!

GOD Bless to you and your family!

Melissa, You are the sweetest and most beautiful person inside and out. Everyone who watches the show sees that in you. You are such a family woman and I know you want the family all together and happy, but sometimes you just need to just cut ties with certain toxic people. You are an amazing woman with an amazing husband and children. I'm always rooting for you girl!

Hi Melissa. Just wanted to say thank you to you and your beautiful family for letting us into your lives being on the show. Its sad that you have problems with your sister in law. I think you show alot of class with the way you deal with her. God bless you. Hopefully, she'll grow up and start taking responsiblity for her behavior. Continue to love your husband and children. Be their example. Praying for you.

Listen Melissa, you can win all the BRAVO polls you like, it’s proven the guest who is on AndyLIVE always wins the poll, (Bravo does this, )Danielle won for crying out loud, PLUS, NBC s/t did a follow up poll and Teresa won by a landslide 82 percent last night! Melissa, you have single handedly ruined this show with your manipulation. LAST night you were transparent, and here's why, if anyone can prove different, I will write an apology letter, but good luck! Here it is: Melissa and Joe, the couple that said they would never be "fakers" and that he loved his sister set this latest “Teresa bash” up! Last night told the real story, all you need to know about these two. OK, we know Teresa heard rumors and said a hurtful comment to her brother in confidence but HERE'S the real issue and what proves Melissa and Joe are envy driven and completely well, “cruel” is the nicest word I can write- Last night MELISSA said to Teresa: "Joe came home and CRIED that night after you said what you did” WELLLL, we watched their scene in the middle of the day in their bedroom where Joe said (AND I QUOTE) "You know what Teresa said to me the other day?"...and THEN he proceeds to tell Melissa what Teresa said. So Joe told Melissa the night Teresa said it, , and THEN they set it up again in their bedroom. That was PRICELESS and really defined who Melissa is when Joe said (in front of the cameras), after she already knew, "Do you know what she said to me the other day?" Melissa replied "No, what did she say" with an innocence that was oscar worthy in lying. She already KNEW!!! THEY ACTUALLY MUST HAVE HAD THE DISCUSSION: "I'll bring it up in front of the cameras and you act surprised." Absolutely disgusting. To his own sister. Last night showed us exactly who you guys are pulling these strings. Karma will handle it. You or "we" don't have to.

Yes"iamelh62" in answer to your question, I can see through Melissa. So can everyone I know that watches. Weird, they only print the tweens and vapid folks who can't. There is no way when 31 out of 33 of my friends who watch absolutely hate her, that it's not the norm. Stats have it. The Bravo poll last night always favors the one in the seat with Andy. Even Danielle won when she was on. NBC LG/NT did a follow up poll last night and Teresa won by a landslide. 86%.Here's the really sick part follow me here: One of my friends last ni9ght pointed this out, and I couldn't believe it. She was right- what a snakwe you are Melissa: LAST NIGHT, Melissa said to Teresa, "when Joe came home after you told him I could leave for a richer man, he CRIED". Okay, so Joe came home that night, told his wife and he cried. Uh huu, well then WHY did we see a scene DAYS LATER where Joe said, and I quote, "Do you know what Teresa said to me the other day?" and Melissa coyly said "Nooo, what?" And then Joe proceeded to tell her. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out the despicable...Melissa and Joe already had the conversation the night he came home. They then REINACTED it for the television cameras . They actually had to have the conversation where Joe said, "OK, lets say it again, only you act surprised when I tell you." That is absolutely disgusting beyond reproach. Listen Joe Gorga, if you have the B**ls to do the talking heads during the interviews to malign your sister every chance you get like you're a housewife, then have the b**ls to get a blog on here. You are a wimp of a man and a brother. Shame on you. No wonder your father is ashamed of you. I would be too. Can't believe you set that scene up. Melissa is everything I hope my dusghter does not grow up to be. She has ruined The Gorga Sr’s last years on earth. All because she was jealous Teresa had a show she wasn’t on.

You are a wolf in sheeps clothing. Who cares what you think or say? Youre singing "career" is a joke. You have zero talent sweetie....stick to being a good mom and wife. You clearly want the spotlight on you, and play innocent in front of the cameras. Guess what...we re on to you. Grow up, get a hobby (and please jesus no more singing), and stop trying to tare apart your family. Shame on you. Teresa is your family, and she happens to be the only reason ppl tune in or know anything about you. So maybe some mighty big thanks are in order. What would you even have to talk about if not for her?? Thats all you people ever talk about....Get a life...fast!

First of all .. Congratulations on your singing career! I loved the song you wrote and sang for your husband, it was really good! Now, I think that your husband shouldn't of told you what he and his sister spoke about in private! I feel he is worried about losing you, and it shows when he constantly has to talk about "sex"! I feel you handle that situation pretty well, and I do feel you show how much you love him and your family! Joe seems to be insecure about you, and even himself! But, that is his issue and really not yours! You really do just to keep peace with Teresa, but she has a hot temper and is also as insecure as her brother! By the way, you are my absolutely favorite on the show!

Sandi

Melissa, I use to love Teresa and now... she has no clue as to how much trouble she starts just by opening her mouth! Why she had to make the comment about you leaving your husband, if you ever met a richer guy ...was really out there! How would she like it, if you said the same thing! She lives in a "glass-house" and should shut her mouth! I also, have to tell you that I so enjoyed the song you wrote and sang for your husband! You have a really nice voice and I enjoy your music, congratulations on your upcoming singing career! Teresa really needs to see a shrink, she lives in Na-Na land!
