Melissa Gorga thinks the boat debacle was one of the scariest experiences of her life.

Hi lovers! I can't believe summer is almost over! It goes so fast. I'm having the best summer with Joe and the kids! So many exciting things are going on. I can't wait to share them all with you! I have an official release date for my new single I Just Wanna: September 9th! It's such an incredible dance track I know you will love it. I’m really proud of it. I also shot a video for it! I'm so excited for you to see it. I'm grateful.

How fun was this episode? I loved it! It was such a great time in Napa! I truly loved every second of it. I have no regrets! Sharing the RV went well. I'm really happy we did! I also loved spending so much time with Kathy, the Manzo crew, Jacqueline, and Chris! It was really going well. Oh and I can't forget my favorites. Vito and Greg! Love them!

Yes, we get it, Theresa is no angel. She can be snide, doesn't take responsibility for her behavior, and is not the sharpest tool in the box. I can even believe that she did her fair share to put you down when you married Joe. Despite all that, us Bravo viewers love her for her spunk, her personality, and her balls. She gets away with her faults because we don't take them to seriously, and she is a hoot to watch. Like Jay Mohr said once, "she had me at prostitution whore". But don't think we are falling for your "I love my family, i'll do whatever it takes, and as long as Joe has his sister I will put up with her" act. You and your husband came on this show behind her back, with guns blazing to take her down, and mooch from her fame.. Whatever history you may have had nobody calls his sister "garbage" on camera, on the first episode that is filmed, because she congratulated him twice (Gasp!) on his sons christening. Anybody in that situation, who says he loves his sister, and wants to stop the bickering would at least be cordial and say "thank you". You boohoo hooed about the tragedy at your sons christening... It was your husband who caused it. And you excused him by saying he was too drink too remember snd we don't know the history. We are not falling for the innocent act now, your intentions were too transparent. And now everybody on the show, except for Theresa, are your best friends, despite the fact that you and your husband get high on the attention, ham it up for the camera, and expose Tarzan (gross!) on a regular basis. My only theory is that everyone has some sort of anti-Theresa agenda and are happy to embrace you guys for giving that agenda some life. I don't know how Theresa could ever forgive you and Joe for putting her family drama in the public eye. No matter how many sweet blogs and interviews you do now, you can't deny your original intention and we the viewers are not going to forget what happened just two years ago.

Teresa is 100% correct, she has done nothing to Jac & Caroline! It's obvious that Caroline is mad b/c Teresa & Dina are still friends but Dina isn't speaking to her.  She made up a reason to be angry & got Jac on board by filling her head w/"Teresa is not a good friend" crap.  You & Kathy were already on board to make waves for Teresa b/c that is what you promised to do to get on the show & you wanted to make sure you stayed on the show by creating drama & also to get your camera time which we all know you & Joey love so much! Please go away or as you guys are always wanting T to do, own up & acknowledge all the crap you have done & started!

This show would be so much more enjoyable if you and Joey supported Teresa more.  When you four are having fun its really sweet and fun to warch. All of you are really funny in your own way and should be the strong family that sticks up for each other no matter what.

if you mean what you say and what you've been saying isn't an act (because of the overwhelming number of people who were hating you) then in this next episode you won't let Caroline eff everything up like she's been trying to do. let's see if you're real or no.

Melissa,

 

I am glad you are having a great time with everyone but, you better keep your good eye on Teresa.  I do not trust her and I know she will be spewing her poison very soon.  She's like a cancer she just doesn't ever stop or go away.  I liked how you finally stood up to her and shut her up.  I liked the fame whore comment because it's true.  It just seems funny how when she got into an argument with Jacqueline it was all about you and Joe. (A LITTLE FISHY)  You were hilarious in the water and I laughed my butt off.  Your purple shoes with the chains on them were sizzling hot!!!  I truly like you and your family (You Joe and your kids) You guys are beautiful!!  Tell Joe I said keep his shorts on and stop going to pee with Joe Guidice it's kinda gross.  Two grown men going to pee together ugh.  Keep Tarzan in the jungle and let it be for your eyes only!  Can't wait for the next episode....Love you guys

Melissa, I hope you see how incredibly immature you appear on camera sometimes. We canoe at the Russian River all the time and you can see to the bottom which is about 3 feet deep, and wearing shoes like most people do while boating would have eliminated some of your hysteria.  I've a feeling you had NO intention of trying to surf at Pillar Point either, but put your wetsuit on for show.  Newsflash, Half Moon Bay is pretty rugged in many areas and your "bedazzled" bikini was a big mistake for a self proclaimed fashionista.  Please relax.

Melissa...sometimes when we live in darkness...anything and everything...even snails would terrify us...that is why we get into such a panic over the smallest things...because when you are not living your life right...then we live in fear all the time...so get out of the darkness and into the light...and make Jesus smile.

and those were ducks...not swans you silly goose

What is the matter with you guys?  Who gives a crap how or why Melissa and Kathy got on the show?  They got on the exact same way Caroline, Jacqueline and Theresa got on. Next season a friend of Kathy's ex friend of Melissa's is coming on are you going to dog her the way your dogging Melissa. If all you go off of is what Theresa says I would HIGHLY suggest to rethink that. Theresa is a pathalogical liar and you can watch ANY episode and catch her in at least 5 lies per.  Melissa and Joe are WAY more fun to watch then Theresa and her felon. They are good hardworking folks.. And remember EVERYONE has family issues.

I totally get the water thing. Ick. Who knows what things can crawl who knows where. I don't know why you are surprised about Teresa telling Jac to go against you. You told your husband, sisters and friends to go against her right? You never assumed your place in Teresa's family. You went in gang busting and you know it. That is not the real Italian way. You could have been a great sister to her but you weren't. But now you are at least trying or so it seems. Be good to her and take your place. And the last thing is that your husband is disgusting. How do you take it?

Melissa and Kathy have BOTH explained how, and when they were approached to be on the show, once again Teresa fiips the information to go HER way by telling half truths and changing her story along the way!  Why are people mad at Melissa and Kathy for doing what Teresa and every other Housewife including Bethany, the OC ladies etc.... have done since the beginning of time!!  Back off.  Melissa and Kathy did not just wake up one day last year and say I want to sing, I want to make fantastic deserts, neither did Teresa, who by the way talks more about her "Brand" then she does her family.  Oh and I love her explanation that her daughters have real cash "to play with" because their "business women" that's why they don't use Monopoly Money.  BULL!  Teresa wants her own show, it won't work unless she moves.

Teresa was actually trying to move forward from the past.  She wasn't negative, she didn't speak behind anybody's back.  She took people aside and voiced concern.  It was Jac who brought up (while the cameras were there) Tre's issues with you in the past.

Ok here goes....Melissa...if you don't come clean at the Reunion regarding how you & Kathy came on this show you will most certainly face the wrath of many, many viewers!  YOU OWE Teresa & her family an apology.  YOU OWE YOUR husband the truth...or are you afraid...afraid he will leave you for the ugliness you have put his family through??

Are you people for real?  So Melissa freaked in the water  who cares it was funny!  It doesnt matter how she got on RHONJ , get over it!  It is not the Teresa and Joe show.....Melissa and Kathy are a breath of fresh air!  Teresa has changed over the years and has caused ALOT of drama both off and on camera.  Melissa constantly tries with Teresa  and  at some point she will have to just shrug her shoulders  and give up. Melissa you rock!!!!Love Love Love you and joe!!!!

I would just like to know when are you guys going to actually "move forward." This phrase is used over and over but you all can't seem to do it completely. "move forward" should be the drinking phrase on Andy Cohen's show!

Is it any wonder why you and Teresa can't get along?! You both need to be the center of attention and try to see who can dress flashier. You are in constant competition. The only difference is that you are just an attention seeker and Teresa is a mean, spiteful, backstabbing attention addict. Please tell your husband he needs to grow up and quit trying to show his wiener all the time. And all the constant sex talk is disturbing. He needs a lot of attention too which must be another reason he and Teresa can't get along. I think all of you would find life easier if you weren't battling for airtime so much.

The water scene was the funniest I've seen in while. Reality TV doesn't produce many truly memorable comical moments but this is definitely one I'll remember. True fear is unmistakable, and to see the decision making process one goes through while enduring a frightening situation is what makes it so funny – granted only if the outcome is harmless.

Goal – Don’t let feet touch river bottom

Find Joe – he’ll save me

Realize - Joe is laughing at me

Give him a little shove for laughing & he starts floating away

Realize – wait - I need him

Run after Joe – must catch him

Question self – Is he trying to get away from me?

Caught him – now climb on his back

Realize – I should have taken those surf lessons

Realize you’re standing on a person – drown him or not?

Not

It’s my husband – rethink drown him or not?

Still Not

Find closest object – boat - climb on top

Tried but it’s starting to tip

Swim – the water isn't deep enough

Find closest object – Juicy Joe - climb on his back

Harder than I thought

Land located – Realize – I can do it

Run - Finally Safe on Land – fall to the ground - Thankful

Realize – Everyone is laughing at me & I DON’T CARE.

 

Just so you know you’re not alone – I pulled into a fast food drive thru one night, as I ordered a bug flew in my car. I thought it was moth, so I rolled all the windows down so it would fly out. It wasn’t – it was a big 3” flying water/tree roach. (If you don't know what these are - imagine one of those big hissing roaches that can fly. They are impossible to kill - you can smash them with a shoe and by the time you go get a paper towel to dispose of them they've recouped and relocated. Spray them and they'll run straight for you.)  I will hurt myself trying to get away from these monsters. As I stopped at the window to pay – it crawled on me! I’m flailing around, trying both to get it off of me and undo my seat belt. Finally, I manage to knock the roach to the passenger side of the car. Determined to get out – I must have tried to open the door 10 times before I realized it’s only opening about 8 inches - why - because I’m at the pay window. Unable to escape, I climb into the back seat and again try to get out but that door isn’t opening far enough either. Thinking my only escape and the roach are both on the passenger side of the car I suddenly realize the windows are down. So here’s this grown woman trying to pull off a Dukes of Hazard move, climbing out the window, onto the top and down the back of her own car, while in the drive thru lane, screaming and crying and no one knows what’s wrong with me. Long story short, there was a crowd and my explaination was far from acceptable for interrupting and delaying so many, but a kind stranger moved my car, removed the roach. I didn't get my meal but I did get a hefty repair bill for the damage I did to my car doors.

I guess it's only funny when it isn't happening to you.

 @IMALOSER Since Teresa got caught in at least 5 lies in each episode pls name the 5. It does matter because bravo do not just pick anyone to be on their show, they scan people to see if there is something they can offer.Knowing how Melissa and Joe threw a fit at their christening and then bad mouth Teresa throughout the show Danielle becomes even more relevant because it shows the extent she will go to get on the show and hurt someone. You may call them fun I call them fake.

 @bfair

 WRONG, Melissa and Kathy DID just get up one day and say "I want to get on this show NO MATTER what to peddle my singing and baking on this show." They did because this show was already THERE and they had grown to be almsot paralyzed in envy for those 3 yrs Teresa had it without them. Teresa DID NOT wake up and say I wanna write cookbooks for this show I got casted on ON MY OWN ACCORD, because the women at that point weren't peddling products yet. Look up the time frame, Bethenny wasn't! When Teresa started no one was doing anything significant from their shows yet, The fans directed and pushed Teresa to the cookbooks, She came on it organically. Melissa and Kathy waited in the dark sidelines, hating Teresa in the limelight, and they waited for their chance to POUNCE on Teresa because she had it coming----she was famous, and they were not! Your blog was very deceiptful and just plain wrong.

 @bfair Do you honestly think that "this" has anything to do with what any of these women may want to gain by way of "wares" or careers? We could care less about Melissa wanting to sing or Kathy wanting to bake, or Caroline wanting to do a cookbook etc. etc. People are upset primarily over the "gang mentality" coupled by the enormous "Hypocrisy." Not one of these housewives/househusbands should ever have singled Teresa out & repeatedly pointed a finger at Teresa over & over again, without expecting America to point TWO fingers back at them! I could go on & on, but honestly I'm not sure if your truly uninformed or if your just missing the point.

 @HW84

 No, Teresa just lied about what she was doing behind everyone's back because she is a pretty good manipulator of the public.  I guess she did learn a lesson from bullying Danielle and then telling the viewers FU on twitter.  Do your dirty deeds away from the camera and pretend that you love the viewers like family.  Much easier to suck the money from the simple that way.

 melissa has ben saying REALLY bad things online about Teresa since 2008 and I'm sure Teresa knew the worst was yet to come when she joined the show, so I'm actually amazed that she has been a cordial as she has been.  Check out oncommongrounf.com and you check it out for yourself and then understand why she was so defensice when Melissa joined the show. Joey should be ashamed of himself for tolerating this kind of public attack on his sister.

kat.bostonsteines

 @amorenomore The truth is that in order to be on this show or any other show is that you have to be approached by network. Some times you even have to try out for it(depending on the network and show). Theresa has NO say so or influence with the decision making, nor does Melissa and Kathy. It really doesnt matter how they got on tho, just that they are. If Theresa and her Train wrecked soldiers have a problem with it then remove yourselves from it.

 @freepour If it's not the Teresa and Joe show than somebody needs to tell the Manzos, Gorgas, Lauritas and Wakilis not to talk about Tree 24-7 because you could've fooled me. Judging by the amount of trash talking about the Giudices it sure does look like Teresa's show. Totally.

 Read Melissa's comments about Teresa when she first joined the show.  They are horrible! go to oncommonground.com and read them for yourself and then maybe you can understand Teresa's distress when they were asked to join the show.

 @Calypso I enjoyed your bug story Calypso, I'm sure most of us have had a similar experience. I just don't buy Melissa's reaction. On another note...I just had to post to you, to say thank you for your, REAL ACTOR vs. Reality star, analogy in your last post. LOVED it!  I thanked you at the time, but like so many posts, it wasn't printed.  Johnny Depp....is truly gifted! You have a natural flow to your writing, and I enjoy it.

 @FanViewerNJ Hi FanViewerNJ, I just wanted you to know that my post may have been a bit vague. I agree with you on the intentions, the jealousy, of Kathy & Melissa. Sometimes when I'm in the moment...when I  write, I forget that, not everybody realizes where I'm coming from. You & I have been on this site for a long time and were, basically, on the same page. Almost every post I've written that gets into the nitty- gritty of things, BLK, deceit & betrayal, etc., ends up in cyber space! I just hope you know that my point to bfair was that all the "other" housewives chose (as a group) to throw Teresa to the wolves. They thought they could point to every flaw she had, and America would fall in line with THEM. Their obsession with tabloids, legal matters, marriage issues, family matters, left me wondering who was really hiding what, and who was really talking to whom, and why? The HYPOCRISY of it all! I was already upset by the obvious "gang mentality." I've come to realize I have to tip-toe around certain things that I believe, or bravo won't print what I write! It's why I often will write, etc. etc., or, on & on!

kat.bostonsteines
kat.bostonsteines

 @kat44 It primarily has everything to do with "this". Theresa TOLD the other ladies not to tape or befriend Melissa or Kathy. She has(Theresa) has admitted it herself. Theresa singled herself out by doing the tabloids. If you are going to make public what you swear is private then expect back lash from it. Theresa needs more than one session of therapy and we ALL know it. 

Hulali

 @kat.bostonsteines

 The problem I have (and many others) is that Melissa and Kathy were choosen for the show BECAUSE they ahd issues with Teresa.  From the begginning (2008) Melissa has been posting public comments that were very nasty about Teresa being on the show in the first place.  Bravo didn't choose them because they were housewives that lived in the same community but because they wanted to showcase a bitter family dispute and thats just not cool!

Thanks to all for being so kind. Who am I?

 @kat.bostonsteines

 Wrong, "kat.bostonsteines"- you stated a lie. When Caroline was at the deck ambush and hinted around the implication that Teresa had told she and Jacqueline to not like Melissa, Teresa asked in shock: "I TOLD you to not like Melissa?" Caroline retracted on camera and said "No, but you implied it with your actions". That was such an "a ha" moment, and here you are, writing a lie on here, as if it's a fact. A lie that even Caroline didn't have the nerve to state as fact,tsk,tsk.

kat44
kat44

 @kat.bostonsteines Sorry, but Teresa did NOT single herself out. Your missing the big picture here. Melissa was pissed off from day one, meaning Bravo asked Teresa to be a rhonj, and NOT her. Jealousy & mean spirited attacks, blogs, twitters went on for 2 years behind Teresa's back, etc. Caroline & Jax are all about BLK (comments are being limited), and Caro. wanting to believe Teresa is too blame for Dina...again NOT true. When I wrote "this" my point was,viewers are primarily upset by the "Hypocrisy" & "gang mentality" that has occurred on the show.  There is NOT #1 accusation the "other" housewives can point to, regarding Teresa, that WE can not ourselves point a finger back at them. Viewers most likely would not have made a big deal about the "ventures & or issues" surrounding the "other" housewives, had THEY not of been so hell bent on taking Teresa down & or making her look like a villain, when they singled her out! The reaction on these blogs, is America...taking a stance.  If your going to dish it out, and gang up on ONE person, you should be prepared for those of us who will NOT sit back and quietly watch! The most important lesson I ever learned in history was.....Remember!   

kat44

 @Hulali I have to believe the only ones that refuse to understand the obvious deceit, and jealousy by the "other" housewives are either a part of the Manzo/Laurita clan & or the Marco-Gora/Wakile clan, or viewers who are taking part...late in the game.
