Melissa Gorga

Melissa thought that Gia's reaction wasn't out of the ordinary for a 10-year-old.

on May 21, 20120

Hi my Bravo friends! Was that a field day or what?! Jacqueline did not cut any corners. She had everything there! It stinks that you didn’t get to see the entire day. We really did have a blast. We were out there for like eight hours. It was nice to just go and have a good time. Joe and I just wanted to put everything behind us at this point and move on.

Did you hear me ask Joe outside Jacqueline’s house if my shorts were too short? He could have said yes! Geez! I keep thinking of the Nair commercial. Who wears short shorts? We wear short shorts! Ha. Yes, they were too short!

I thought Joe’s talk with Gia was so sweet. I love how he explained himself to her, because he loves her so much he wants her to hear it from him. Joe is amazing with children, and for some reason all the little girls love him. Yes, it bothers me a little the way she was saying her mom gets upset and her mom tries. I wish she didn’t know as much as she does about the whole situation, but I think Joe knows she is only getting to see one side and hear one side in her house, so he wanted to take the chance to tell her how much he loves her and her mother and that he is going to try and change it.

Melissa, would you feel any different about what Caroline and Jaclyn did if it were your daughter who threw the tantrum and if Carolin and Jaclyn took your daughter aside and began to lecture her about being a good sport? Or would you have also preferred that they had come to you and asked you to speak to your own daughter instead of taking things into their own hands?

I believe that Teresa is seriously jealous of not having her two favorite men in her life, her husband and her brother. It is difficult when Teresa and Joe were so close until he got married to Melissa. I don't think Melissa has done anything wrong, she is a victim here in this family war. I think it would be well worth the effort for Teresa and her brother to go to lunch but with serious guidelines such as no talking about family whatsoever. Not Mom, not Dad, not anyone. Just the two of them. Make it a very short lunch. No sitting and talking for hours, just maybe 45 minutes.

Sometimes people get their "needle stuck in the groove" and just keep repeating bad verbal behaviors. Yes, they can discuss with their respective spouses what was discussed if that is wanted. They are each married, they should share these things. Remember in conversation with Teresa and Joe Gorga, KISS. (Keep It Simple Stupid :-) )

Hello Melissa,

I just want to give you kudos for putting up with your sister-in-law. She is so out of control it is pathetic to think people like her exist. Keep doing what you do... because it is real and you are a beautiful woman.

I know just say " Thank You Jesus" for giving the strength to stay positive! I love you girl!!! Stay Real!

Teresa needs to get off that "People are saying wagon". Most people know who and what their relatives are really about. If I had to use the perception of the town's opinion of my family as the gauge of who and what they are about I would be misled. Teresa is tarnishing the image of her brother to her daughters just like a divorced couple. Let them love each other.

I'm sending this to your husband more so than to you, but you should probably be sensitive to this, too. I believe that Theresa is being abused by her husband. Anytime a husband pits his wife against her own family, that's a form of abusive control. The only reason she and "Joe don't fight," is because he is in complete control and she's clearly afraid of him. There are many, many forms of abuse. I've said many times that I thought she was crazy, but after just now seeing last week's episode, it's clear that she's just trying to walk a very fine line and make everyone happy. Please, please keep doing what you're doing. You're a great wife and mother AND sister-in-law. Please tell your husband, no matter what, don't give up on Theresa because blood is really thicker than water. She shows all the signs of an abused wife. Maybe she could get together with Taylor Armstrong from RHOBH and compare notes.

Teresa was starring in a show that Melissa had to beg, pester and sneak on through the back door. Teresa's life is the show because it takes over everything. Melissa wanted to be on it. Melissa wanted Teresa's life. How anyone can say Teresa is jealous of Melissa is one beer short of a six pack. Wow. Give Teresa her own show. Imagine Melissa on the show without Teresa. What would she do? What is there to Melissa, if it's not that she hates Teresa. Come one, be real folks.

Melissa, I believe you have a tremendous heart and I understand you are not going to support with what I'm going to say, but, I feel Teresa is a completely different person from season one and two. I used to love her, I don't know if she is acting like this because you are on the show or if it is because of the situations of her own home or maybe she feels that you took Joe away from her. She needs to accept the fact that Joe is MARRIED. You put your family first and you even stand by Teresa when you feel like she is in the wrong. God Bless. You are an amazing wife and mother and don't let other people convince you otherwise. Family is family at the end of the day, even if you are screaming at each other.

"jerz902" : I think it was very big of you to aplogize for calling a viewer something unkind, I really do. You rarely see that and I am impressed with that part of your blog. You seem like a nice person. However, you are assuming motives too. You assumed that anyone who questions Melissa is a Teresa supporter. I'm not "Team Teresa." I think Teresa can be too quick to speak, she doesn't think first; and can be very rough around the edges and inappropriate. But I do question Melissa's motives, no wait, I don't "question" them, I can comment on facts. That's the problem with your assessment. I believe from what I have seen with my own eyes, that she manipulated her way through this show with one sole purpose: to turn anyone she can against Teresa to make a name for herself on a reality show. What makes it disgusting to me, is that it has affected her own nieces horribly, and there is no way she didnt see that coming. Look at these blogs! People are writing nast names about her nieces, and that's a positive blog for Melissa because she's winning with that viewer. Have you all lost your minds and don't see that it's exactly what Aunt Melissa has set up? It's LUDICROUSLY obvious to me, everything she has done to be famous on a reality show. Combine that with her husband climbing on board with the same goal, well, it makes them tough to stomach. I believe she's fame at all costs. WHY IS IT Melissa can manipulate and TALK behind Teresa's back for two seasons, voice her opinions on Teresa's motives, rip apart Teresa's motivations with actual words, but when a fan questions Melissa's, you "just can't believe someone would do that." It doesn't make sense, and we're not questionig Melissa's motives, we're commenting on what we have seen. You are never going to win the argument "no one should criticize Melissa", when that is ALL she has done on camera to Teresa for two seasons.

Melissa has set up a season to have her nieces SLAMMED on blogs across the nation. To support Melissa, her fans write about how terrible Teresa's kids are. And that's considered a "win" blog for Melissa. Nice. You may have fame Melissa, but if you care, you will never have your nieces love. Though I suppose, seeing you AND Joe in action with the cameras, you guys are MORE than willing to make that trade. OMG, who does Melissa get to write in these nice blogs about she and Joe trying to keep the peace? I must admit, it gave my friends and I a good chuckle this morning when we were perusing these sites. Serously? He set his sister up telling the nation what she said in private, and he's trying to "keep the peace?" That wasn't a little things folks, he purposefully set her up, with cameras ROLLING-to fall hard with a PRIVATE conversation regarding what everyone was saying around town. How can ANYONE not find that simply vile, or are you just Teresa haters? I think the latter is true, fortunately, you're a small majority. Any fan that would write in to bash another woman's children on here is someone I wouldn't want to know in real life. ! It shows you who Melissa's fans are. Teresa lets us in her life and shows the real scenes with family life with four children. They are adorable and full of life and learning to be honest, not manipulative, and they are accepted for who they are. Teresa allows them to be who they are on camera, and they are rockstars. Melissa shows us contrived scenes she wants us to see. It is so painfully obvious now, and its out there for everyone to read, how Melissa and Joe came on this show to take Teresa down so they could have fame. It's hard to fathom, coming from a family who would never even THINK about doing that to one another for "reality" fame. Yikes. That's why we "Moms" are just flaberrgasted at the people who haven't caught on yet. It makes good television though! We particularly liked viewer "Rozzzz"'s comment "It's a shame Teresa won't accept Joe's willingness to have peace among the families" LOL,LOL, sorry, again, "Joe's willingnees to have peace"". Oh my god, stop, crying laughing. Really? Was that a serious blog? If you go to Teresa's blogs, she receives nice blogs from fans who lavish her with kudos on overcoming a public execution. On MELISSA'S site, you see viewer's slamming Teresa to build Melissa up. All Melissa is, is tied in with hating Teresa. Great dynamics for your career. Melissa is in Teresa's shadow and she always will be and THAT.... is the whole problem. It couldn't BE any more black n white: The Melissa "kind" letters are the slamming of Teresa. BINGO! O.k, one more time:"It's a shame Teresa won't accept Joe's willingness to have peace among the families" Sorry, I just had to write it again.

I absolutely love you & you're family. In contrast to Teresa's. You & Joe get along so well & your children have manners. In watching the show, it's obvious that Teresa is extremely jelous of everything about you, & also of how well everthing is going for you & Joe. It's a shame she won't accept Joe's willingness to have peace among the families, because it's so very important. As an adult with two grown adult children, I've had more experience with family members not getting along. If Teresa isn't willing to make peave, you have to go on with your life continue with what makes you both happy. I'll keep on watching to see what happens & best of luck with your music!!!

Melissa, I waited way to long to post my comments about you, your goreous hunband and the sister-inlaw- from hell! I just wanted to express my feelings. I watched Teresa & Joe long before you were on the show. Teresa was a different person until she realized all the money was gone. She became such a different person, mean, jealous, envious, cruel comments, and what I think is she realized her "false pretentious world had come to an end"! I memember the first re-union show when she attacked Danielle, Danielle came back with how she knew Teresa did not actknowledge the birth of her nephew as a family member is expected to react & behave. From that comment she went ballistic and she became loud, used foul language, even callling Danielle the "c" word!! Carolyn had to intervene. That was the first time I saw Teresa for the person she really was! All I feel is Teresa has such unhealthy feelings for her brother, she is so so jealous of you and will never accept you as the number one woman in her brothers life! She cannot get past the many years that have gone by and accept that her brother now has you and you are his everthing. Teresa has some serious issues, her husband should realize Teresa needs professional help, yet she continues to fuel the fire by making sure to akways make herself the victum (which is so un-true) to her brother in the wrong way to her husband who inturn reacts so negatively. You sweet Mellissa are my hero..

Seriously these blogs are too much! I wrote primarily because I just think it is ridiculous that Teresa's supporters are so mean to Melissa and basically everyone else on the show. We see only a glimpse of their lives. It frustrates me that people can assume the motives of these women. I was wrong to call the viewers names, and for that I apologize.

PS KerryD55 I have a BA in Psychology along with two more degrees. That in no way qualifies me to determine why Melissa, Teresa, or anybody else makes the decisions that they make.

If this is true that you and Joe contacted Bravo several years ago about coming onto the show for the specific reason of "Taking Teresa Down", then shame on BOTH of you!

Hope it was worth all the pain you two have caused, ALL for fame and money.

Teresa is very jealous of you. You have what she wants...a husband that adores you and fantastic children. Joe treats you with respect and shows you 100% love. Teresa's husband is just ruining her life with failed businesses, bankruptcy, cheating accusations, and no respect for her family what so ever. Let her continue to be miserable, but keep being you!!!

Melissa, you & Joe are such a great couple! I love your outlook and you being the "bigger person" in this entire situation...I have to ask though, how do you seperate being a great Mom and a hot wife? I am a new mom and I feel guilty about wanting to look good..as if, I am a Mom nnow and it's not appropriate. You pull it off so well! How do you do it?

"DebbieInMissouri" I am sorry you were bullied on here. "jerz902" was very unkind, and must be a miserable person. Since Melissa has joined, that is exactly what this show has come to. Since it's out now, how Melissa joined the show, people who have supported her are getting desperate. Meanwhile, Teresa who never really did anything to anyone, has risen above the men spirited chaos, and simply pumped out another bestseller. Even Dina Manzo on her personal site, says in her own words, that Teresa had absoultely nothing to do with the fact that they she isn't speaking to Caroline. People can read on-line the inner workings of this feud. Dina's home page... excellent site to follow the maneuvers that have built the show to this ugly level.

TO: "jerz902: OMG, Teresa's fans are not uneducated. Yeesh. I happen to have my masters in child psychology...what do you have? The Teresa fans are just tired of Melissa's manipulations, and every now and then she slips, and we see the real Melissa on camera. However they are "out there" now. Let her have her twitter fans, please, I hope she enjoys the heck out of her reality show fame. But don't think for one minute, that the educated, perceptive fans, haven't seen exactly what Melissa has done to achievethis. Look how she's turned this show into fan bashing fan. You came on a blog to call a viewer "uneducated." It's crystal clear that Melissa came on the show to construct an "us" versus "them" mentality. Bravo, we want our old show back. Please give Melissa her own show. I would LOVE to see how long THAT lasts.

There was nothing wrong with what you were wearing at all. If you have it, own it. Of course Teresa would make a big deal out of it...she is the one that is jealous. THe more you and Joe go out of your way to make things better, them come along and screw things up. You have a great family, wonderful husband and family, don't bother with her anymore, you try and get slapped in the face.

I undersatnd the inner workings of this feud, as I've watched from the very beginning. ALL of the women in this office go crazy over this show, and I waited until now to voice my opinion because I don't jump to harsh decisions, or believe anything I read in "rag" mag's or blogs. For what it's worth to any readers, good or bad, I knew exactly who Melissa and Joe Gorga were after the reunion aired. That reunion was a spectacle with Teresa that made me embarrassed to say I watch this show. Even if Teresa was in the wrong, let's just say she was, the way she took a very personal, bully-beating was just vile, and those women should have been embarrassed beyond belief. Especially Melissa, who sat passive aggressively enjoying it, while every argument those women had against her family member, was the fruition of one of Melissa's intros into this show. Immediately following, The Andy Club House was on live, and Kelly Ripa happened to be the guest. Obviously the shocked clubhouse was talking about Teresa and Melissa, and Kelli sang a few bars of Melissa's song "On Display." I was still reeling from what I had just witnessed, for Teresa was absolutely publically crucified and the personal manner of which it was delivered from those women was just stomach turning. Even if her own brother thought she was wrong, a brother would have felt just devastated and sick for his sister, EVEN if he thought she was in the wrong, because the beating we witnessed ripped his big sister apart and she stood alone. I couldn't eat for an hour, I can't imagine her own brother. Well that wasn't the case. Joe Gorga called and tweeted "live" into The Andy's Show all happy and energized because Kelly Ripa sang a few bars of Melissa's song. He wanted to be heard on the live show and he was practically giddy with happiness. RIGHT after he saw his sister massacred. I knew then that it was a war. Us against THEM for the fan's spot on a reality show.The goal was to alienate and destroy a fan base on a very personal level. Joe and Melissa came in with a plan and carried it out to fruition. Teresa's children have been affected terribly. The other adults on the show who say Gia has seen too much, are the ones fueling the fire out of jealousy. I am so glad the story has come out about Melissa and Joe's entrance on this show. It's all on the Gorga's webpage. Those two will have many years to sit in this. The manipulations and ill will are beyond my thinking. They have hurt their nieces beyond repair. They should be completely cut from their lives and I do not hesitate in writng that for one second. My heart goes out to The Gorga Sr's for having such a son and daughter-in-law. They will never recover. I will support Teresa in whatever she does. I will never support Melissa and Joe or The Manzos. This was too much.

OMG Teresa's fans are so uneducated and ridiculous. Melissa wasn't sticking her tongue out directed toward Gia; she was being playful and it was towards the other team collectively!! I can not even stand Teresa's fans anymore, they spell every other word incorrectly and only parrot exactly what she has already said like it is some revelation. I love you Melissa, you are fantastic and your family is amazing!

Melissa...I saw the episode where you stuck the tongue out at Gia with so much premediated arrogant fierce...she is your niece and is only 10 yrs old...and then your hubby Joe Gorga pulled his niece and 10 yr old aside to discuss adult matters and to taint Gia view towards her mom...very immature, calculating, and sad to watch...2 desperate grown adults behave like 2 juveniles... Oh I have a question for you. At the solitice party when you told Teresa to run away coward like you always do...Then Teresa came back like a roaring lion and a fierce ram about to bulldoze you over...you moved back in fear...Where you afraid? Is that why you moved back in fear ?...I saw the fear in your eyes and in your actions... I said all of that to say this...in the process of you and Joe Gorga trying so desperately to make Teresa look bad...and trying to take her down...it is only hurting you and Joe Gorga because...sadly to say...you and Joe Gorga are the ones looking very bad...You and Joe Gorga are making some terrible mistakes...I mention all of this because I dont want you to think that I am giving you advice in some thoughtless or offhand manner...When I say something in your world can change dramatically for the better..it can...if you would only let it go and move on and move forward and treat everyone with the same respect and love that you so desire.. Walk in Love. Try it. It wont hurt you. It can only enrich your life.

Hi Melissa, I think that you are just a wonderful person, continue to concentrate on the positive people and things in your life. For someone who is always been bashed by your so-called- sister-in-law, you have always tried to see the positive. As far as Gia is concern, she has a lot of growing up to do, and Teresa should always let her daughter know when she is out of line. I just love you and your hubby!!! I will continue to pray for you and your family...

Yes your shorts were short...but you can wear them and get away with it. They looked great on you - so don't worry. In a decade you will not be able to wear them (only because of age). You are such a lucky young woman. You have a husband who is doing well, loves you like crazy and desires you. You have the most beautiful children who are the sweetest also. Your husband adores you and certainly places you on his pedestal. It is obvious Teresa can't stand that her brother loves you. You will never have love and peace with her. She wants what you have.....she wants her husband to be like her brother. It is so sad and twisted for her.

I watch regularly and I just wanted to say that; Melissa, you have every right to defend your marriage. I have seen relationships be torn apart by siblings, and it is clear that your sister-in-law's intentions are cruel. If she was half the woman you are, half the wife you are, she would have no issue with your marriage to her brother. Anyway, everyone who watches the show can see how much Joe loves you. You are an awesome mom and an amazing wife. Keep your head up and that smile on your face. :)

Mellisa keep focusing on your career and family and let the others hate you if they want to... that means they wish to have what you have. Do not bother about Teresa she is all drama and because her life is all messed up she can not deal with the idea that other people do have control of their lives and that they do appreciate what friends and family can do. I think she hates you because she would like to live just like you and have a husband like your because to be honest her husband is not sociable, thinks he knows it all and do not give her the respect she deserves as a woman. Again stay real and keep loving others. One last thing.... about the shorts yes I do think those were way toooooooo short. you have a great body but when you're going to a family event it is kind of disrespectful to wear something like that. You have an awesome body and a great personality and there is not need for you to show off that much when there are family and friends around. xoxo

I think that you were jealous of your husband's and Gia's relationship at one point or anyone else that he was close to on his side of the family. Well I guess you don't have to worry about that anymore. Maybe you think you're winning for now on some level, but my Aunt had a son just like your husband who married someone like you. The woman that fit into the family that he had before the one that he married he did not want. He wanted the one that caused drama all the time and pulled constantly at my Aunt'e heart strings until 25 years later when the family was so sick and tire of his wife's ways, they no longer cared what she did, when they were no longer the center of our family's dinner conversation with their drama, he shocked everyone by divorcing her for someone else. See, my aunt's son always had the be the center of attention and he got it by creating drama and shock value by marrying a woman that everyone actually ended up liking 25 years later and when that started to happen and there was no more drama left to create, he ended up leaving her for someone else after his kids were grown and out of the house.

I love the way you and Joe are so in love and united, its a beautiful thing. I think Teresa is a truly lost cause and cannot and will never get along with anyone, she has too much anger and bitterness to soften and be kind. I say stay far away....she is one scary woman.

I think u are great Melissa!! I dont know what show others watch but Teresa is just a big crazy mess. She hates Melissa for no other reason but marring her brother. She thinks he was taken away from her not that she gained a sister and three great children in her life. If ppl can not see that she has nothing to do with Joe and Melissa"s children. She thinks her children should be treated by her brother better than his kids. When Rich said do you beleive that Teresa really thinks of them as her family and the answer is NO. She has no use for the kids or Melissa so people wake up and watch the show!!!

I'm not a fan of you or Teresa. She lies and you run after the fame and the money. You did not have to join this show and shouldn't have. All you keep talking about is "love in the family" yet you made it worse by coming on this show.

Melissa,

During the car ride to field day a Jacquelines your husband showed you a text he sent to Teresa and said "SHE HASN'T TEXTED ME BACK YET!" clearly she wasn't lieing to Jacqueline when she asked Teresa (as Jacqueline and Carolone state) if her brother had reached out to her. Now Jacquelines says she was shown the text and Teresas response and mouths "why would Teresa lie about that". Well obviously she wasn't since it's on camera out of Joeys mouth that he hadn't got a response yet!

If your hubby is such a saint to his one and only sister why would either of you even show Jacqueline the text. If you are coming from a place of good and truely want the family back togetther then why do you both keep adding more fuel to the fire and keep giving false ammunition to Jacqueline and Caroline?

I had you pegged from the beginning. You are the mean girl from High School. You are the type that would take a new girl under your wing to learn everything there is about her and then throw her to the wolves. You my dear are a Master Manipulator". You know it and love it!

Melissa, I believe that your an amazing mother and a genuinely sincere person and mean the best. I think your almost too nice and forgiving for your own good when it comes to Teresa. Every time you try to be the classy person you are, Teresa has to attack. Its sad. Your husband and you deserve better. And no matter how much you defend Gia, it was inappropriate how she acted to the adults and during the games. It was supposed to be fun and there was no need for crying and screaming. I am so glad you stood up to Teresa! Way to go! Keep it up! You tried to keep the peace, it didn't work so let her have it now.

What difference does it make if you asked Joe at Jac's front door if your shorts were too short? Were you going to change right there on the front steps? You said you liked your short shorts. They were inappropriate at a family outing. Your husband cheats at games and you stick your tongue out at a 10 year old when you win....really poor sportsmanship. Poor Gia, going through changes, the possibility of her dad going to jail, having a mom like Teresa, the fact that you, Joe and Teresa cannot get along...she is having a hard time right now. Try a little kindness with her.
