Happy Birthday, Antonia! My beautiful baby girl turned 6! I am so blessed to have such a beautiful, smart, and good little girl in my life. She really is the sweetest little thing inside and out. I’ve always thrown her beautiful birthday parties; it’s what I love to do! It’s one of the reasons I love being a mom. For as long as I can remember I’ve just always wanted to have babies and do all the beautiful things mommies do! I only have one little girl, so I love to give her everything I can and enjoy these precious baby years for as long as she will let me. I know she won’t let me dress her in the frilly outfits with the big headbands and feather hats forever. But for now she loves it, so I’m not going to stop until she makes me! The party was so much fun and all the kids had such an incredible time. This is what’s important in life, watching the kids smile and just enjoying life together!
For those asking why I had my makeup done for the birthday, well, hello! I wanted to look nice! To be honest I hired a professional photographer to capture the day -- memories, memories, memories! So if figured I’d get my makeup done so I could have some great pictures from the day. I know I’ve said this before, but I have a picture obsession! I will post some of them from the party on my website today, so be sure to go check them out!
It was great to see Teresa and Joe getting along at the party. See how easy it is? Just enjoy each other! Joe mentioned how the therapist said a Sunday dinner would be great for us. I really thought it was a great idea and immediately invited everyone to my house. I loved being able to play with Teresa about the sprinkle cookies! That’s how sister-in-laws should be. They should be able to play with one another. That is all I want. I just want a happy, normal relationship with her so that we can get our families together. Is that so hard? It’s not for me! I’m happy Teresa is getting to the point where she is realizing that life is too short to worry about the petty things. I hope she is going to start having a more positive attitude about my marriage, my music, and my kids, and just stop overanalyzing me and everything I do. It must be draining for her to worry about me all day and worry about how we are living our life.
Melissa, we are NOT your lovers, so STOP STOP STOP with that...it is getting old and trite Also. just because Chris Judd was HIRED to teach you to dance, does not make you the next Jennifer Lopez. And what is with the hat, Lady Gorga? When are you going to be YOURSELF, rather than impersonating celebrities. I am sure they are getting fed up. Lady Gaga and Jennifer Lopez WORKED to get to where they are. Not only do you COPY off your SIL, you copy off of celebrities. See, the people you copy from have their own style...you do not have your own identity...that is what made THEM stand out and you will stand ASIDE-IN THE BACK. Neither became a sensation overnight...as your husband is funding all your ahh hemm...whatever you want to call it. All the famous singers: Lady Gaga, JLo, Kati Perry, etc. have THEIR OWN STYLE - you my dear lack creativity.
Many talk about Teresa Joe and their kids about their behavior. OMG really.. Before u sit there and point ur finger realize how many fingers r pointed at u.. So get a life and move on and understand that blood is thicker than water...!!!! No sibling should pick their spouse over their blood.. Yes love ur spouse but remember who has always been there for u from the beginning..
I love you Melissa and you bring a lot of fun and youth to the Houswives brand but when you bought up the sprinkle cookies to Teresa i don't think it was all in fun. I noticed during that show that you threw a lot of jabs at Teresa and it was uncalled for considering her and Joe had went to therapy to resolve a lot of these issues. And since Teresa's issues have to do with you the last thing you should do is add fuel to the fire. That therapist they went to really sucked. I was hoping he was going to be more helpful because I want Joe and Teresa to be family again. I have to agree with Teresa especially after reading this blog I believe growing up materialistic things are very important to you. Not once in the first paragraph did you say you love your daughter. All you mentioned is what you love to do for them. Even on the show I don't see any affection from either you or Joe towards your children. You and Joe constantly show affection towards each other while your children just watch from the background. I have never seen you show any affection towards any of your children, not a hug, not a kiss, nothing. And that seems very strange to me. It just seems all about you. Did you come on the show to start a career. Yes. Did you come on this show to bring things to light about Teresa. Yes. Is it wrong to use this avenue to start a new venture, absolutely not. You would be dumb not to. But was it wrong to use this venue to sabatoug Teresa, yes it was. I don't think Teressa would have said anything about her family on the show until you guys came on with guns loaded letting America see that this person they loved was a vicious person Enough about that. I love your song Rock Star, it is great. I love to see the love that Joe has for you.I wish you alot of luck with everything but I think you really need to look at what you have done and the role you play to make things the way they are. I noticed a different side of you during your daughter's party and i am not a Teresa fan by any means but you make me question you.
Man you haters are really something else.Get a life!
Go back to Teresa"s blog and pump her ego some more!
Have an opinion,but whats with the hate?
Melissa Gorga took the stage to lip sync her latest “hit”. It’s a song that really reflects her life as the mother of three small children. It’s about going out, getting drunk, dancing on tables, and partying until the sun comes up. You are a HYPOCRITE and your blog shows it. Your so happy you n Tre are getting along...yet you make more digs at her!
"I’m happy Teresa is getting to the point where she is realizing that life is too short to worry about the petty things. I hope she is going to start having a more positive attitude about my marriage, my music, and my kids, and just stop overanalyzing me and everything I do. It must be draining for her to worry about me all day and worry about how we are living our life."
Wow. It is YOU who is over analyzing ( 2 words by the way hun) her. If your so true to your family...then why don't you leave the show?
"Teresa has always wanted her to be in the spotlight, and so here she is!" Wow, nice comment from loving Aunt Melissa. Way to support Gia.
You and your husband are such a cute couple!! People qho hate on you are just jealous of you and of your great marriage. Keep you're head up and stay strong.
You did great on the performance, never give up. You will keep getting better and better!
The fact that you lip synched? Not a good choice and you had to know that you'd be lambasted for that. Just because you were dancing is no excuse. My son is a singer / performer, so I know that it does take practice and stamina to do both at once. I also know his fans would be very unhappy if he lip synched at a show. I have no idea if you are really serious about this career as a performer or if you're even talented - can't tell. If you are, you need to try a lot harder. Hard work and talent is what will take you there, not the fact that you're on some reality show and therefore feel like you deserve it.
I think you did great Melissa...Congrats! Keep being who you are, and please...please...please don't listen to these Tre-bots!
btw you husband comes off very kind and caring. i dont know why others would say otherwise. he seems to be exhausted of dealing with his sisters mental problems
Melissa i just seen you dancing at the concert you were great ,to do that takes courage, i seen how proud your sisters were of you and of course Joe,youre a very lucky women with a husband that clearly thinks the world of you ,and your sisters that love you dearly.Ignore the haters : ) best of luck in the future from down under....
When I see you & your sisters...all I can think about is the wicked witches stirring the black kettle while they hackle & cackle & make their evil spells!
I am so glad you, and your husband are not my family. Joe hates his sister, I would hate a bro like Joe.
Melissa you have grown to become one of my favorite characters on this show, and before anyone asks yes I have watched every episode. Ignore the teresa fans that take pleasure in bashing you, they are as delusional as the woman they idolize. Keep doing what your doing because you are fabulous!
Melissa, you cannot say you "performed" at Beatstock? You DANCED and LIP-SYNCED to your song. Are you EVER going to sing live? You were off a few times.
Watching your sisters cry and your new friends (Teresa's family) support you only supported the memories of how you got there. Telling Teresa, "yea they keep texting me" was so classic Melissa. You could barely concentrate on Teresa because you were too worried about your fans in the background. Melissa, it wasn't a concert, it was a local small town carnival feel. What a joke! For GIA, it was a big deal, but you looked ridiculous glowing and jumping around afterward, "diva-ing" or strutting or whatever you called it. This may sound mean spirited, but it PALES in comparison to what you have tried to do to your sil. It's what you created. The whole thing rung "disturbing" because we know who you stepped on and who you wanted to ruin to get there--Teresa and her immediate family. The show was boring focused around you and I'm sure the producers now see that. I mean you only have so many toes, gonna be a LONG next season with you on.
But Joe Guidice has been there for his wife more than her own brother. Her own brother and his wife dug the family's dirty laundry out in public. We ALL have family issues but we know to keep them private, and so does Teresa. Joe Gorga screwed his family. It is terribly sad. I feel for Teresa.
@Noodlebomb13 You mean 99% of the viewers?
Tre-bots..LOL...Good One. Pretty funny coming from someone that must be deaf and blind. I understand that it's hard for you to comprehend this show and Melissa's performance not being able to see and hear. Thank goodness you are not one of my friends or family if you feel this is proper behavior.
He comes off as a first class 100% BSer.
Well he is responsible for Teresa's misery
Teresa is not the only one who wants to hear Melissa sing live. It is not secret Melissa lip syncs!! DUH!!!! And you refer to Teresa as stupid?!
no kidding, if he was hot maybe it would be tolerable, but after knowing what's in his heart, the thought of his touch really creeps me out.
I totally agree! But Richie is a very close second!
@amorenomore hahaha!! So do I!
I have noticed a patter with Melissa fans.. Most have one post here and they all seem to say the same word in describing Teresa fans.. lol Give it up.
She has on the shoe before without any music. Do we all remember Christmas and decorating. She has a beautiful voice.
well not surprsingly Jaqueline has rushed to Melissa's defense on her twitter account an said Melissa did not lip sync.. even tho she wasn't even there. lol Melissa did not sing that song live. Period. She lip synced. At certain times she even moved the microphone away from her mouth while she was supposed to be singing. She was off the beat with the other dancers too, but the dancing was definitely a lot better than the lip sync performance. Good Lord, why is getting the truth out of these people like pulling teeth!
I didnt even see any dancing, just a few poses. I would think that IF she was a good dancer, they would have shown some good parts. That was some sorry dancing...seriously it was a joke. I really expected her to do better
@Annie003 Yes! It was definitely a joke directed at the Karaoke Queen.
Are you saying you approve of Teresa and her girls and the way they talk to and about Melissa and their uncle? Please I would take Melissa and all her family of Teresa and hers any day. Melissa and Joe have tried over and over and Teresa and her family are the ones that keep acting poorly.
Hmmmm and Jacqueline claims she sees Teresa for who she is. I got she is blind as a bat if she cannot see Melissa for who she is. Even Stevie Wonder/Ray Charles can see what a piece of work the Gorgas are.
@keepITreal210 because they tell so many lies they start to confuse themselves. lol
without auto tune she does not have a good voice. And you are wrong about real singers. Of course they sing live. You think every singer that has become famous only sings to record their records? Not so. If you want to hear Melissa sing live watch the old Bravo clip wench like me. It really is bad. You can't become a famous singer lip syncing and refusing to sing live. It doesn't work like that.
@maderma Noone is trying to make it a contest. Everyone is tired of Melissa claiming she can sing but she lip syncs. Every chance she gets, she put on her ipod and gets on tables and has the same moves. She performs in all the gay clubs. If she was such a great singer, one would have thought her husband would have built her the studio BEFORE coming on the show. Melissa is so fake. I absolutely LOVE all forms of REAL music (except rap). Many singers before becoming famous went to clubs and performed LIVE. ANYONE KNOWS THAT. Famous singers did NOT become a sensation overnight...it took time!! They went to bars performing LIVE. Some loved them, some hated them. But they did not give up. All Melissa will be remembered by is a two hit wonder. Her music is only played n clubs on HER itunes/ipod. These episodes occured many months before the viewers see it. Why is it by now her music is not on the radio? She will never be compared or come close to singers whose music has been around for years.
I think you're wrong - famous singers DO sing live or else they get beat up about it in the tabloids!!
well get ready for her blog people. lol her excuse is she sings to a track (which she didn't, she lip synced JUST admit it already, good God!) when she does a lot of dancing... so what happened at beatstock then because that wasn't a lot of dancing.
@TanyaFrmNJ that is very true. Some of the biggest stars today struggled for years playing for nothing in small out of the way places and they did not lip SYNC
@Hulali Or Mli Vamilli (however it was spelled).
@keepITreal210 LOL! These comment threads are better than the show!
@Annie003 Poor Chris just looks like, "is this what my career has come to? Teaching a housewife to dance?!"
I agree with you 100 percent. I don't know how much money he paid to teach her to dance but if it was just to teach her dance it was waste. If it was to a marketing ploy I guess it worked because everyone knows he hired Chris Judd to teach his wife to dance.
