Hope that answers some of your questions. I'm really looking forward to this time off. My family needs it, and I truly believe time heals all wounds. Our family is not there yet. Joe and I still need some time to get over this. I don't know if I ever will, but for now I just need a break from all the craziness. I'm excited to get started working on some new projects that I can't wait to tell you about! I just booked a trip to Jamaica with Joe and the kids that I can't wait for! I'm sure you need a break from all of us too! I can't say thank you enough for all your support. I truly do love you all for it.
Make sure to check in with my website for upcoming appearances.
I Just Wanna (feat. Santino Noir) is on iTunes!
The music video is on VEVO.

Teresa is the highest paid because she is the MONKEY of the show! She is entertaining and we all laugh at her. But even if you get the monkey off the show, doesn’t mean the circus has left town!!!
Your beautiful have beautiful children and you are a great wife. Don't listen to T, the poor woman needs help, her family is messed up her husband doesn't respect her no wonder she acts like an ape!
Love you on the show, but T needs help, something is seriously wrong with her, I hope she gets help befor it effects her children more than it already has. Please take care of your family and have fun with the rest of the cast.
You really really are a loser. I said it last year and ill say it again. You had no business coming on the show. You have no talent or if you did by now you would be on the top charts? You came on to tear your husband away from his family and make a name for your no talented self. So if you had real talent why don't I hear you on radio? Because its something that you paid for and we will not pay to here. Stop blaming Teresa for you Being a loser with a bad voice and no talent. It's not her fault.
As far as I am concerned you should be on your hands and knees thanking Teresa for all your opportunities at Bravo!! Straight up!! You came on the scene dissing her!! When really you should have been thanking her..
I hope the good girls (Melissa, Jacki, & Caroline) have a good season. They need to just party on without Teresa. Let T film her own segments with her sleazy crowd of cows. Lets see some T-free gatherings of people actually telling the truth and being nice to one another while having fun.. Pulleeeze.
@rosyposy Ahhhhh.....seriously???? Take a look at the NEW picture of the NJ housewives above. Teresa is front and center. Not to mention the highest paid of the group....and you think Melissa, Jacqueline and Caroline will be partying/filming without the STAR of the show? They would have NO storyline. Really....wake up .... you're dreaming again.
I like teresajo1959. My guess is this is the year he/she was born. Mine is 1957...no matter. I like the cut of your jib. Terea is a narcissist a sociopathic individual with no thought of running over anyone in her way just to get what she BELIEVES IS HERS TO TAKE. I am sure BRAVO will keep her on the show because of her narcissim it keeps the ratngs high and the sponsors love being able to sell their wares to a large audience. I would not want to change places with Melissa for anything She (Melissa) is beautiful, funny, honest, loyal, married to a wonderful guy, a beautiful home, with cute little kids. The "fly in the ointment' is her sister-in-law. Theresa can't look at Melissa withou seeing red because Melissa is everything Theresa is not most importantly she shines with a glow of truth. Theresa talks about people on her side, where are we in the 6th grade??? Grammer school was where girls in particular counted the people on their side, those who liked them and hated the identified other side. I think Therea counts her friends like she counts her money. And while I am at it, Theresa G. is NO AUTHOR. She is just a glorified cook who took recipies from her mom and her cousins mom and put them in a book. There is no thought in writing her cookbook. AUTHOR MY BUTT. Dostoevsky, The Brothes Karamazov, Gerritson, Brown,Patterson and Grisham to name a few these are Authors but Theresa G shes no author. My life may not be in featured the spot light but I have a great guy and great grown-up kids. The things Thersa has done are unforgivable she really has problems and needs to take accountability for her actions. Will she, I doubt it but it would be nice to see her try to change if not for herself then for her daughters.
Please tell me it's not true.... Teresa is back???? Ugh... Really Bravo??? Not watching upcoming season if its true!
Melissa, I love you and Tre. Married 21 years hun. And my sister in law was a Tre all over. ALL OVER GIRL!
When my hubby and his sister used to fight (and her husband too), I always did the patching up. I was like you.
When my sister in law used to screw me over, i got over it, real fast! I didn't let it consume too much time.
The part I most regret is both our Mums died while the 4 of us were fighting. And the kids suffered, not seeing each other.
As we've gotten older, they are so nice to be around. 10 YEARS ARGUMENT FREE! Woohoo!
We love getting together. And we laugh girl! Do we laugh! We are mid 40s now.
Older, wiser. Wasted years when we didn't talk. I want that for you guys, so bad.
All the best hun! We're praying for you all!
Team Joe & Melissa! Sorry for all the garbage in the media...but it's all just so cheesy you know that Teresa and that strip center budget shop operator...what's her name? Kim? are behind it......I just had to laugh.......Life & Syle should have reported "The Truth ...according to Teresa....it has her name written all over it......just smile and ignore....if they're alking aout you at least they have picked a good subject!
I love love you.. you may be very outspoken at times but i feel in my heart all things you do and say are coming from a good places you kept trying to mend things and never once blamed or played the victim ..HOLD YOUR HEAD HIGH xx
Hi, I am from Australia (over 60) and have watched this show for a few years now. I look at Teresa and she is not the sharpiest tool in he kit if you know what I mean. BUT having said that I look at her and see that he would not intentionally hurt anyone. She sometimes says words and doesn't even know what they mean. Why can't people give her some slack and see how she is. She really loves and misses her brother, and Melissa I can see how you DO like fame and fortune and can understand that may be the reason you went on the show. Teresa had it and you did not. What better way to get it and possible have a go at her at the same time because of jealousy. I also see the way you look at men sometimes and like the attention that they give you, fine there's nothing wrong with that but it could give of the wrong signals sometimes.
I hope that you can work things out with Teresa - each year see you all getting more and more hateful with her and that is so unkind.
@leonie . Sorry Leonie, I also am from Australia, and think you are way off the mark. Melissa and Joe, from what we have seen have never had any financial difficulties, as with Teresa and Joe. So to say Melissa was jealous, is ridiculous. I see Melissa as a lovely person who did her utmost to bring Joe and Teresa back together, without intervention, I don't think it would be possible.
Jjabg4 leonie You say Leonie saying Melissa was jealous of Teresa is ridiculous because she "never had financial difficulties".. Did you even read what Leonie wrote? She was talking about the fame and fortune that Teresa had and Melissa wanted. Don't call someones point ridiculous when you can't even grasp when they're talking about.
leonie I AM ALSO AUSSIE & MELISSA & JOE ARE A BEAUTIFUL COUPLE .TERESA IS A EVIL WITCH WHO THINKS SHE CAN DO WHATEVER SHE WANTS
I do hope you guys come back this season. I am Italian & know there is BS in every family. Teresa should watch the tapes of the shows just to see how she really is. Every family has a trouble maker & yours is Teresa. I love watching the show I can relate. Family is very important. I miss that since my parents are gone & so is most of the family of there generation.
there is BS in every family Italian or otherwise. I think that is what you are saying. the difference is that our BS is not broadcasted on an international platform.
Love reading your blogs! I know it's been been months since the show has aired, but have one question. I'd like to ask all the housewives and Andy Cohen. If they got rid of Jill Zarin for being "toxic" to the show, why are they keeping Teresa on for another season? She has to be the most "toxic" of all the housewives to ever be on camera. It's all just sad what fame and fortune has brought her. She treats most of the people around her so badly. I honestly have to turn the channel or mute my television when she is on. She is the sole reason I may not watch again. Mostly, I feel bad for her children. It's hard to believe Bravo and Teresa are going to put them through another season. If Bravo or Teresa has any true family values they would stop the insanity and release her from doing any more damage than she has already done. Although, I do believe what goes around comes around, and I think she has a lot coming to her for the things she has said and continues to do. You have brought so much fun to the show, I thank you and your family for that. You, Kathy, Caroline, and Jac make the show. I love your positive attitude and enjoyed watching the closeness of you, Joe and your children. I truly hope you and Joe are still a part of his parents life. That is probably the most tragic thing that happened on any season of any housewives show, period. I hope his parents know the truth and your family can spend as much time with his parents as possible. Family is everything, and I know that you realize that and have done everything humanly possible to mend it. Good luck to you and your family!
@teejay246 Fame and fortune is what motivated Melissa to join a show and in the process destroy her husband's family with no remorse. Teresa had what Melissa so craved. Talk about TOXIC. The fame seekers arrived in season 3 and destroyed this once pleasant franchise of housewives. It's a shame.
melissa i like you on the show Ithink you and joe are a cute couple . hope to see you and joe back next season. i dont know what happened to teresa the show must have went to her head.she is not the same person as in season 1&2. hope you and joe dont change. teresa should go back and watch and see how much she has changed.
Let me start off by saying that regardless to what people are saying below, I think your AWESOME...drama or not. I have NEVER been a fan of anyone before because I never felt like anyone was worth modeling after. Then season 3 came and you & Joe blew me away. =) Your family dynamic is AMAZING and your relationship with Joe should have been written by Nicholas Sparks! <3 You're doing whatever you need to in order to keep your family together and going strong, and as a wife and mother that is exactly where your focus should be. If that means that the "Crazy Italiana" needs to come out every now and then, then hey so be it. As a Puerto Rican born and raised in NJ, I am no stranger to putting people in their place when the situation calls for it. I'm going to assume that most of your haters are young unmarried girls and so they cannot know the daily struggle of trying to keep a marriage happy when family (in-laws or blood) interject their opinions and negativity. I am 24 yrs old and I have been with my HS-sweetheart (now a Marine) for 10 years and we will be married 4 yrs come Dec. 31. I can MOST def relate to you (although we don't have kids yet) and I have to say that you inspire me to keep strong with my Hubby as everyone around us prays for our failure. With all these haters lining up to talk about you, you must be doing something right. ;-) Keep doing your thing doll!!!! XoXo...A Mini-Melissa<3
i'm anxious to see who's on the show next season and to see how things pan out. there are things from this past season that still don't make sense to me, which i hope will be clearer next season. i don't understand why you went along with the bald guy instead of saying, no offence but i don't remember where i know you from? it seems to me what he said must be true, which is okay, so why not just own it? that way no one can try and "set you up" again. or are you in the process of suing him now for lying about you on national tv?
anyway, all the best,
melsweet That was the part that was so silly. There was no set up, all the drama was created by Melissa, Caro and Jaco...if they had kept their mouths shut none of this would have even been noticed. It was their doing, to try to set up Tre to look like the bad guy.
i agree totally. but can you believe the two families have gone a year not speaking because of it? that melissa, i tell you.
Just_Saying melsweet MELISSA LOVED THE ATTENTION!! SHE'S NOTHING BUT A NARCISSIST! SHE'S THE ONE WHO SET HERSELF UP!!
Melissa, I have met people like you so many times in my life! You are sadly an attention getter!! You really cant be happy with your life unless all the attention is on you! Watching all the episodes it seems that you really dont want your husband to have his sister in his life. You act innocent but some people can see right through you! You have a beautiful family, you are set financially, you are a pretty girl is that not enough? Sooner or later I believe the other ladies will see your true identity!!!
@dixie1 . If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all. My parents taught me that, obviously yours forgot too.
Jjabg4 dixie1 "obviously yours forgot"... hmmm now that doesn't sound like a very nice thing to say. Kind of makes your statement a little bit redundant now doesn't it?
Teresa may have heard rumblings about something but until it actually materialzed that day, she may have not known anything about it or have been involved. People talk. They say they are going to do things all the time and never do. Kim D. may have discussed this with her in passing but Teresa may have blown it off as nothing, just talk. When she was actually sitting there and it was happening, then, I'm sure she knew what was about to happen. However, this is different from you actually seeking Danielle out to destroy your sister-in-law. That as pure evil. She confronted you on it, you confessed and she forgave you. Maybe you should confront her. If she says she had nothing to do with it, then, believe her and move on. Stop tyring to imput bad motives. To take the high road means that you do just that, take the high road. Believe her and move on. However, with that said, do you think it could be pride on your part for not wanting to accept what she is saying and move on? She didn't accept you when her brother married you. You have felt that and known that so maybe, this is your way of paying her back, by trying to expose her in such a negative way. Everytime she messes up you are right there with spotlight in hand. Believe me, we all have faults, but nobody likes the light being shined on their faults 24-7, not even your sister-in-law. Can you not see that this only further leads to disunity in your family? And, I'm sure each one of you is hoping the other will humble themselves and give but neither one of you is buging- too much pride. I truly belive that you and Teresa should be in therapy, not Teresa and Joe. Once your relatioship is good, theirs will fall into place. Humble yoursef and think about fixing, not destroying things. And, don't say that she isn't worth it because when you do, it again, putting yourself on a pedastal and her beneath you.
So... No we have seen Kim D on the couch with all of you. Now you have heard Kim D say that she and old baldy cooked up the whole thing to get at you. Are you STILL blaming Teresa for this set-up? I know Teresa isnt your favorite person in the world, but she had nothing to do with it at all. You and your hubby Joe need to acknowledge that Teresa was not involved and try to get back to the place you were on the Napa trip. Family is family, Melissa. The tighter you all are, the harder it is for bullies like Kim D to cause this devastating level of destruction.
Watch a rerun and pay attention this time. Kim said straight out that Teresa knew of the set up. She did not say the depth of Teresa's involvement, but it is crystal clear to those of us with brains that Teresa was right in the middle of it. Anyway....it is all history. The set up completely failed. Joe Gorga has no lingering doubts about his manipulative sister. He has moved his lovely family away from the neighborhood so his children will not become tainted with Teresa's sick hate, lies, and manipulations (as HERS have). It is over. It failed. Time to move on.
but what really happened with the "set up?" some random bald dude came up and made an accusation, which if you think of it, must be true or else wouldn't the gorga's be suing for libel? the man said this on national tv and yet they aren't suing? strange. but you need to do your homework before you take sides. the gorga's are moving because they have to. that lovely home they're in is a spec house and is not their permanent residence, they are late on payments and have to go. there are scanned copies of the legal documents online for all to see. so think about what kind of people would blame their little nieces, for fear they will be bullies one day, and use that as a reason to move? it doesn't get lower or dirtier than that in my book. blaming teresa became the excuse for everyone on the show and so they just went with it when their own problems came to light. that's why joe guidice was telling them to pay their bills on the reunion show. they are living beyond their means just like the guidices' were, for the cameras, but teresa got out there and hustled and they were able to keep their home. the two families have a lot more in common than you might think. i'm sure melissa is really glad about the set up, now she has a great excuse to blame teresa for everything and never allow her husband to make amends with his sister. joe gorga is blinded, which is to be expected, but still he needs to open his eyes to what his wife is really all about.
murphy1 melsweet Yes! And I bet one of the piranhas will insist that melsweet must be Teresa.
Why is it ignored that teresa pulled melissa aside in the bathroom to warn her she knew something was going to happen? And why is it that noone else sees that melissa is a fake! She pretends to be nice but you can tell she enjoys the fighting she pretends to want to help them get closer but seems to play a big role in the problems. Also I'm not buying it that caroline was so devestated at teresas comments in her book she likes being in control of the under dog and teresa stopped fitting that role so she jumped to the other girls.she has a need to be the leder of the group so she went toward the weaker girls that will follow her and desire her approval! And jaquline grow up when a friend is going through hard times you should just know that and it should be obvious what she is feeling,why does she have to break down to you for you to be her friend its rediculous! And your daughter its pathetic how little you help her,yes we know you did it on your own and was poor well she isn't and shouldn't have to you'd think you'd watch how caroline backs her kids even when they had the idea of the naked car washwhich is not a mothers dream but she backed them. You bash your daughter and make her feel incompetant and steal any self esteem or drive she has but I think its because you aren't happy with you and since you can't stand up to your peers it makes you feel powerful to be able push her down.
@jessica.schulatz Very well said. Viewers forget that Teresa had to hear her family and her friends bash her on national television for two seasons. That was the show for two years and when she gets defensive on the reunion show or tries to give them a taste of there own medicine, they call her crazy. Right or wrong, Teresa took hits from every side. Her brother is the most disappointing. He should of stuck up for her like Rosie does for Kathy, Caroline does for Jacko and the Marco sisters do for Melissa. I hope karma pays them a visit next season.
hahaha Priscilla is on the show and we know you hate that!!! HAHAHA!! now you will get what you deserve!! AND she will tell the truth about you!
what? for real? is priscilla one of the evil sisters? oooohhh, this is going to be soooo good. can't wait!
Hi Melissa. I just want to say first and foremost I really do enjoy watching you and your beautiful kids on the NJ Housewives. I've been a faithful, loyal fan since DAY 1. I guess in order for BRAVO to keep you guys on, there HAS to be some drama. We don't know all that has gone on, we don't have all the details, and frankly who are we? Other than fans getting a glimpse of all of your lives. NO ONE is perfect by far and ALL of you played a part in this seasons horrific actions against eachother. You are ALL intimidated by eachothers successes. I don't want to use the word jealous, because really how old are we? and this whole "SET-UP" nonsense! It's beyond stupid! Who even "sets" anyone up? Think about it, think about how lame that sounds. And to think you guys have been arguing about this on national TV and blogging about it. Besides that psycho Jacqueline is the one that threw that word out? A "Set-up"....Really??!! I really hope all of you work things out, because when you get along it seems like you all have a great time, one big happy family. People, friends AND family are going to say and do things we don't always agree with, but ultimately who cares? It's just you and your immediate family that matters, that's it! Be safe and I hope you and your family are doing well after the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. Wishing you many Thanksgiving Blessings!
Hi, I can relate to your story as my sister and I have the same kind of thing going on. We dont speak and Gotta say I am glad we dont have to do a show . Keep your head up -its all you can do and if you have to just be with your family to avoid the toxic behavior well so be it. At any rate good luck with all this. Maybe one day it wlll be better with teresa I just dont think its gonna be anytime soon.
Melissa, we welcome you to our native Island, our warm and friendly people and beautiful beaches awaits you and your family. Ensure you try our Jerk products and our lovely Jamaican Dishes. xoxo
Melissa, ok i wish i could just call you on the phone and talk about all the Teresa B.S. Just bc it is so obvious that she is soooo JEALOUS of you and your family. It is so ridiculous to watch the person she has become. People can clearly see that you go out of your way to be nice and try to get a long with her and her family. I'm glad you moved away to better yourself. Even though i LOVED your house. I think you should keep doing what you are doing it seems to be working for you.
Melissa,it's pretty obvious that u and the other "manger dogs" are not going to believe Teresa because u don't want to. I don't want Teresa to leave the show, because where would we be w/out her? Most particulary U,Kathi and Caroline. I believe u sense that teresa is not very fooled by your "wide mouthed and innocent act" Joe Gorga is crude, but it is so obvious that he loves u dearly. You are inflicting the cruelest punishment on him by working overtime to alienat him from his family. Melissa, You nearly have it all. If u read any better than u enunciate, take a little time for some attitude adustment books. Looksfade away. Children grow up,friends come and go, fame can be very fleeting. Your husband is a keeper.
@straykt I'm glad someone else sees beyond the pretend innocence act...you say you want your husband to have his family how about he takes his children and goes and visits and spends time with his mother,father, sister and neices and you back off... I bet they would all gain so much from that. He obviously needs his family its cruel to make him choose. His parents won't always be around and when he realizes teresa is the same sister he always accepted her as and loved her as.he will resent you. But it will be too late for you to fix.
You have stayed really strong and it's too bad Teresa has to hate on you. It has nothing to do with no evidence.. she made comments in previous seasons that were bad about you. It only serves to make her look bad. The more she tries to tear you down.. the worse she looks. You have an amazing voice and a great mom and wife. Hope all the best.
