For the record, Joey comes to all of my appearances, not because he's insecure like his sister says, it's because we enjoy spending time together and having fun together. Again, that's what a partnership is. Teresa knows this, but still wants to insinuate to her brother and her friends that I would leave him for a richer man. Even after the paid tabloid apology for not supporting my music career, which I had to go to Shoprite to read, she is still trying to rationalize what she said in her blogs. Teresa obviously hasn’t learned her lesson because in last week’s blog she continues to talk about the rumors she hears about my marriage. Nothing has changed with her, she is just better at getting others to do and say what she can’t so she looks innocent. That might answer your question as to why we still aren’t speaking. She won’t let up and I don’t know how she can look at herself in the mirror at this point. This is her baby brother’s marriage. All I can do is pray for her, and when she is ready to let up, I will talk to her about it then without an audience.
In the meantime, we’ll keep sending our nieces presents, because we love them, and they can continue to throw them out.
And for those of you asking about how our relationship with Joe’s parents is going, let me give you the real answer instead what the ridiculous “sources” are saying on the blogs. Our relationship is great! We see them at least once a week for dinner at our house. I cook with my father-in-law, and Gino helps since he wants to be a cook now. Joe and his dad play cards for hours while my mother-in-law and I play with the kids. We don’t discuss Teresa or the show, we just choose to enjoy each other’s company, let the kids enjoy spending time with their grandparents, and have a nice meal together. And that’s that truth.
On a lighter note, watching Rosie babysit the cousins was the best! I swear I could watch the Jersey kids all day. They are definitely a handful, but they are so worth it! When I see Milania and Antonia together I just melt. They pay no attention to the cameras and have no idea they are even there. I was dying when I heard them talking about poop! You can’t help but love them. Rosie definitely looked like she needed a scotch and cig after a few hours with them!
LOL, you need to do the same thing Melissa! I can see clearly what you are doing and you need to stop playing your husband against his sister, put yourself in her shoes with your family, your sisters, wouldn't be soooo good for you would it.....You need to realize that YOU need to help your husband work it out with his family not keep instigating it....."Joey why did you tell me that, don't talk about it to anyone" then you go to Caroline and Jaqu and tell them...what are you doing???? You are just like the others DRAMA! At least Tre has not given up all the info on you or him as she could! Grow up!!! Get off the show and have some dignity for yourself, clearly I see you as a Fame Whore!
I love Melissa!!! She definitely tells the truth about all that is going on on R.H.O.N.J. I wish Teresa would just pause for a moment and take a good, hard & honest look at herself. I believe then & only then will she see the error of her ways.
Thank you for showing support for Lauren! She is a pretty young lady and it appauled me to see her brothers treating her that way. What they say to her scars and no one should ever treat anyone they love that way. There is no excuse. Loved ones build each other up, not tear them down.
Bravo...please please post my comment!
Melissa...you are awesome! I got tears reading about how much you love you family, your husband and you will stand up to anyone that tries to bring that down. Also got tears when you spoke so sweetly about Lauren Manzo. She is beautiful and us viewers all see that! We love her for how she is!
Thank you every week for being the voice of reason for Teresa. :) I sure hope she pulls her head out of her...at some point in time and starts to enjoy her family and what she has in life.
I was skeptical of you at the beginning of last season, but I just wanted to let you know that I have become a huge fan of yours and I wish you and your family the absolute best. You did a superb job of standing up for yourself in the argument with Teresa--the logic was so one-sided that I wanted to cringe in embarrassment for Teresa at some points. (And I say that not as a dig to Teresa, because I still think she is a good person who has just gotten caught up in negativity and all her problems). I hope at some point everyone can move on and be a happy family. Rooting for you, Joey, and your beautiful family in the meantime!
Jacqueline lied and said Teresa had asked to speak to you when she clearly had not asked to speak to you that night. I agree that what she (Teresa) said was hurtful. But it was highly suspect that your husband brought it up months later on camera. Even you said to him "Why are you telling me this?" That was his story line. All of youse now had a storyline and a "reason" to bash Teresa on camera. And of course, it gave you a reason to have drama and conflict. Your hubby baited you and you bit!!
Melissa, all i have to say is..You..and Joe..are the bomb.com! Continue to be the classy people that you are.
From what I can see your are such a great mom. Your kids are so well behaved. Don't let Teresa's nasty comments get to you. She is so jealous of your beauty and how well behaved your kids are and how much your husband loves you.
I'm sorry for your family troubles, but I cannot respect you because of your decision to come on the show. You said you were not getting along with Teresa before the show, so why come on to hang out with her and her friends? You never clarify that in any interview you give. Fans want to know. Do you own that?
Melissa, Wow... Get on your own Show... You deserve it.. Really... you do... see how far it will take you, without teresa... Not far... Everyone is riding on her Gravy train.. you should be thanking her... pppppppppppfttttttttt... So tired of this show.. and what it has become.. its painful to watch.. I haven't watched it since the first show... and i won't.. what it has done to family and friends.. is Just Scary.. What you women would do for a moment in time.. Was it worth it.. I think Not!!! Shannon
I dont even watch this Real Housewives because of all the drama on there. Melissa should stop involving everyone else in her problems and stop telling caroline everything. Grow up and deal with everything on your own!
Melissa I just read Teresa's blog post and there's such a huge difference in the tones. Your post seems so attacking while Teresa's seems to just clarify some things . You mentioned Teresa four times more than she mentioned you! I don't understand why you constantly try to push her under the bus. Teresa is going through something personal and why you feel the constant need to bring it up I don't understand. If she chooses to bring it up fine it's her life she has the right to do that( even though I would admit the going away thing was silly since she brought it up and you were answering). It seems like aside from the argument every episode even in the confessional you have a snide remark to make about her situation. It seems to me that ratings is more important to you at this point. I respect Teresa for telling her brother about you PRIVATELY. Of course it was a hurtful thing to hear but she did it privately, why would you and Joe decide to bring it up for the world to hear and judge? You guys don't even seem to respect your own privacy far more for Teresa's.
Let me just say....Teresa never wanted to talk to you about any of this but Rosie and Jacqueline were th instigators in that situation. Blame them!! Your husband should have had enough respect for you that he would not repeat that for fear it would hurt your feelings. Teresa should have never said that but for your husband to tell you is absurd. You are not blood to Teresa.....I think it best that you leave the show and the Guidices have nothing more to do with any of you. Life is too darn short for all this bad blood. "we try for the cousins/kids.". The kids do not need to be close or be involved with all this hostility.
Good for you for defending your marriage! Theresa talks in circles, and anyone with half a brain should be able to see that! Keep your head up!
Hi Melissa And Joe Gorga,
I just want to say that I still watch your show and I'm glad you're all back with new episodes. I like your new song "How Many Times". I was wondering what other genres of music do you or Joe listen to.
I wish you guys the best. :)
just live your life and be kind to others. No one can ever find fault with you as long as you are kind. Your kids are beautiful and always seem well behaved.
Love you Melissa. I hope Bravo Post this.
Bottom line: You have TWO SONS. Teresa said it best. She is jealous and feels deficient. You are young and you have her brother.
Move on, focus on your marriage and continue to love your husband and your children. Antonia is absolutely BEAUTIFUL. She looks just like you sprinkled with a little bit of Joey.
Live your life young lady and in time with enough rope, Teresa will hang herself...her llife is imploding...All you have to do is get the popcorn and watch the show.
Melissa, you are the mature one here. You hit the nail on the head with everything you said. It's obvious Teresa is jealous of you, wants to bring you down to bring herself up through her marriage, money and legal troubles, and envies your relationship with your husband - a close relationship that she no longer has with her brother or her own husband. You are in a no-win situation. You have to do what's best for your family and your sanity even if that means distancing yourself from your sister-in-law.
If you care about fixing your family so much, why did you decide to bring this up on camera, months after it was said?
Melissa, You are a class act! You may have to sever ties between you and Teresa, be cordial and only interact with them when it is necessary, like holidays and parties. She will never TRULY own the problems that she causes others. You and Joe are a great family and you should continue to keep your relationship strong. She doesn't want to look like the bad person anymore and now that Caroline and Jacqueline have seen her for who she truly is, she feels bad! Had Caroline and Jacqueline supported her efforts to make you miserable, she wouldn't have stopped. She will NEVER get it. She and her husband are rude and mean! The way to curtail all of the back and forth is to deal with her when you HAVE to. The rest of the cast is the voice of reason... Everyone isn't wrong. Theresa needs to handle her own issues and leave you all alone. Now, she isn't the most popular one and she doesn't like it. Any sane person can tell that you and your husband truly love each other and aren't trying to step out on each other. The analogy that you made about Teresa at the book signings made perfect sense...(You don't have to be in a club to cheat; it can happen any and everywhere!) Keep your head up and continue to nourish your relationship! You rock!
You do seem like the type to leave your husband if someone better were to come around - and I think he knows it. He even said you don't get a building when you were talking about the future and your children - he said you just get him. I also think he would leave you if you got fat - so at least you are the same.
Melissa takes an obvious delight in picking at Teresa. She seemed to almost be salivating behind a sly smile when she made the comment about Joe going to jail. Teresa looked stressed out and beaten down from the stress she's endured during the past year. It's horrible to watch Melissa play to the cameras with her faux outrage. Perhaps it would be slightly believable if she could keep her stories straight. Did Joe Gorga really come home crying over the comment or did he tell her calmly (and to the cameras) in the scene we all saw? It's really hard to believe that being relevant on a television show is worth crushing a person who has already endured so much. Joe seemed to the the innocent - fooled by his manipulative wife - during last season, but it seems now that he will do or say anything for more camera time. Disgusting.
Mellisa, I have become such a big fan over the last few seasons!! I love the classy lady you are and the way you love your husband is an inspiration to all woman. I hope for the best for your husband and his sister. It would be great for you all to work it out. Iv always been a fan of her but she seems to be changing, anyways, it seems like she's torn between her husband and Joe an it hurts her deeply. Idk what can be done. It's sad. You just keep on like you are, a lady who carries herself "100%perfection" you always come out looking right, it's nice to watch someone hold themselves with respect and be a lady in the face of such drama! Great job Mellisa!
I don't believe ANYTHING that comes out of your mouth. I think you seek out and crave the opportunity to try to destroy your sister-in-law. If you privately with no cameras told 1 of your nasty sisters about a concern you had with their husbands, right or wrong, I doubt you would expect them to go running to thas spouse just to cause more drama. YOUR husband was wrong too and you couldn't wait to air it on the show. You are a trouble maker and attention seeker, who was so jealous that Teresa landed this gig on RHNJ to begin with, you couldn't wait for the opportunity to ruin her.....why else would you have ever been in contact with Danielle????
something very wrong with u ,from the moment u join the show all u do is talking trash about T,u saing she writing in her blogs about u but THAT'S not true,u need to leave the show ,people can clearly see what u and Manzo trying to do,after seing prevew for nxt week the question is How is your HUSband looking at a mirrow and sleep.to tell her sister that hee'Angel from haven'and she is a bith ,while she is crying(and that was real tears),he is THE meanest brother .but the thing is u not gonna bring T down she is too storng for all of u.SHAME
I applaud you for your honest and no holds barred blog this week - it was certainly coming for awhile I suspect.
I too feel sad for you and this situation with your sister-in-law and think you've hit the nail on the head here. Honestly, most viewers (or those with some common sense) have seen how delusional and selfish she is from the start, but again, its sad to see the situation unravel as it has this season.
You don't have to justify your marriage or love for your husband and family as its very apparent. You are truly blessed and should not have to explain yourself the way you have been forced to. Hope you enjoy some time off from filming and the summer at the shore!
Are you trying to say that your sisters have never said anything bad about your husband, and that if they did you told Joe?!? Come on, no way do we believe that. It is the rule of siblings that siblings get to lay down the raw deal to each other deal no matter what and no matter who else has joined the family - that is why they say that family keeps us grounded and level. They will bluntly tell you what others will not.
Having said that, Teresa was clearly the stooge in this one because once it became clear that her brother Joe violated the sibling rule - she should have just eaten it and said a quick sorry to you move on from that mea culpa.
Teresa was wrong not to apologize to you, but you were definitely wrong to raise it to Caroline and Jacqueline, and they were wrong to entertain your thoughts about it. You should have saved your comments and hurt feelings about Teresaand kept it in your family (why don't you just call your sisters and complain like we know you already do). STOP AIRING OUT FAMILY ISSUES! When will get you it already???
Melissa if you want to save your family from negativity and work out the issues why don't you leave the show? It might be easier to fix things if you had never come on the show. Just sayin... You knew exactly what you were doing. You are very fake and always playing the victim card. Your as clear as glass and people can see right through you baby doll!
Well I balme Rosie for what happened. She had no right to confront Teresa. If you had a problem you could have at your own time and place discussed it. This would not have taken place if Rosie would have mind her business. Jacquelin I feel for, as she was put on the spot by Teresa. She did nothing wrong. For Teresa to say something like taht to her brother and think that he would not tell his wife is crazy. She tells her husband everything that is said about him.
Melissa, you are my FAVORITE housewife. You've got it all. Don't let any person bring you down. Keep fighting for your dreams and enjoy your beautiful family. Teresa is self-destructing and wants to take you down with her. Stay away from her.
You aren't fooling anyone. Stop ganging up on Tre. I really tried to like you last season. But I just can't...
Bravo on this weeks blog. Teresa is jealous of you and the wonderful marriage that you and Joey have. Watching her these last couple of episodes is exhausting at how she lies and spins everything to make herself look like a victim. The bottom line is she will never let it end she WANTS what you have a great marriage, a great family, and you are everything she wants to be..Beautiful inside and out, talented, and smart, with a great personality.
Your husband has started a lot of drama on this show. Does he want to be a Housewife? Joe and Theresa both said that she made that comment to him months ago, but he brings it up to you ON camera? Interesting. You and Joe both then and go to the other Housewives with it. You are a terrible actress. If you were so upset about the comment, you should have talked to Theresa privately. You have used your sister-in-law to advance your career. Shameful.
Do you ever admit to any wrongdoing at all? Your delusional if you think that you've never said anything that was completely wrong to say about Theresa but you never apologize. Theresa apologizes ALL the time! I don't always agree with Theresa but the difference between you and Theresa is she can apologize, and she can stand alone and fight her own battles and not turn people against eachother like you have seem to do. And don't lie your husband and you did bring up Joe Guidice cheating on Theresa on camera! It was the first episode of the season and your husband was talking about Joe cheating on his sister. Your little I'm perfect act and Theresa is a monster is getting old. Come on you wanted to let the comment go that she made about your marriage then why did you decide to talk about it to Jaqueline and Caroline(who you said that you were keeping at an arms distance) thats a pretty personal thing to discuss with people who you don't consider close friends. I think Theresa has been very nice in her blogs a lot nicer than you have been but of course you can bash her in your blogs all you want and if she says one negative thing about you your going to blow it out of proportion. The thing is I don't always agree with Theresa and I think she can say really stupid things but its frustrating because you play the victim constantly and you say some pretty harsh things as well about Theresa and your husband does to. You think you can just give insults and not expect to get some back? Theresa's a strong women and she has taken a lot of insults from you and her so called friends this season and she never plays the victim.
You are a class act Melissa! Theresa is clearly jealous of you and your marriage! She is a miserable person and what's the old saying, misery lives company! She is the root of all the problems. Keep it classy girl! :)
PLEASE Bravo, let my "masses" speak: OK, bear with me, LONG, but I’m speaking for a group of women. Seriously people? Absolutely Melissa won this week as far as the”polls” go. Teresa was off base, made a remark that was unkind and she couldn’t defend it. However, she couldn’t really defend what was happening on the show could she? She had to argue the “fight at hand.” We aren’t stupid, we get it. Teresa couldn’t say, “Melissa, you slithered onto this show in the back door, and have spent the last year without mercy manipulating and conniving to get you face out there so you could have a singing career using the vehicle I was blessed enough to land which is this show” now could she? Nope. Teresa doesn’t have to. We all know the fight wasn’t about what Teresa said, which by the way, humorously now isn’t true. Melissa is stuck with Joe Gorga for all eternity whether she likes it or not (come on) let’s be real. She’s a user and an opportunist. She had no problem throwing Teresa under the bus, actually, under the bus isn’t even fitting now is it? She basically tried to banish her through alienation from her own life through passive aggressive, mean spirited gossip, heartless alienation and maneuvers with her “show friends,” and most important audience. Melissa was brilliant because Teresa was blind sighted. It was amazing watching the light bulb actually spark to life in Melissa’s kitchen when she told her she sang. Here Melissa had been doing everything in her power to passive aggressively, and manipulatively ruin Teresa’s every essence including her relationship with her brother, and acted upset and brilliantly acted being upset Teresa wasn’t happy for her. Come on people. Teresa has seen her in action for years and knew exactly what she was doing. She was already feeling the tide turning with friends and her cousin. Plain old jealousy. The fact that Melissa couldn’t come in the show without stirring shows she doesn’t have a storyline without Teresa, her voice can’t hold the story, be real. Melissa has honed this skill, I’ll give her props but she’s a bad person. Yup, I went there. Look, the audience knows what’s up, not the bloggers on here who are obsessed. America speaks, and I’d say we see who they support. I, as a normal human, have just reached my tolerance level. I was at a fundraiser last night, and the topic of this show came up. The women were tangibly hateful towards Melissa. They couldn’t believe she was supported on blogs and basically asked me to write in for “them”. There were about 30 of them and they didn’t even know these blogs existed. These blogs and silly clubhouse polls do not depict the general feel or Melissa would be in LA with a huge record deal. Teresa is on celeb apprentice and will continue to soar. Melissa will stay the villain on this show.
Teresa’s problem is she had no idea Melissa was using every chance, scene, acquaintance and happenstance to gossip negatively to the world about her sister-in-laws money problems, court issues, parenting, husband’s behavior, the way she smiles through bad days, private conversations, hair and make-up, articles in magazines, past quotes by Teresa, past conversations with Teresa, legal battles, blabbing everything to her brother and cousin everything Teresa has said or written and twisting it to embarrass and anger her friends, family and the viewers.. It was emotional torture and Melissa’s good. We saw you. Anything and everything about Teresa, and then they get upset when Teresa writes a couple of harmless jokes. Come on! she could to embarrass and worse, make her friends and VIEWERS angry at her. It was emotional torture and Melissa’s good. On behalf of the 30 women last night Melissa, you caused immense pain to a family for fame. The fact that it was your brother’s sister is unfathomable to us normal women. Melissa knows darn well Teresa reacts and sat back and watched it explode at the reunion and through to this currents season with an eerie smile. Your comment “go ahead, touch me, it will go down in Bravo History” was classic Melissa. We watched sweetheart, stop saying you didn’t do all of this. You did. We saw you. If you spent half the energies you spend on ruining Teresa with anyone who will listen, on your singing voice, you may just be able to sing live on the appearances you’re requested to, and turn down. Teresa (right now in the current season we are watching) is just having her eyes opened to what’s been going on and how Melissa had the “perfect storm” with the rest of the miserable cast to launch her “Teresa replacement tour.” Caroline, Kathy and the piece de le resistance, (Jacqueline with there failure of Black water) were so envious, and so jealous “raw” over Teresa’s huge success and book tours, signings, etc, we practically watched them morph into that Jr High group of friends each of us had that still causes nightmares and night sweats. Melissa’s problem is we saw it, and while she may have won what seemed like the battle since the reunion, (what I like to call “the crucifixion” ) everyone, down deep, even Melissa understands what she and her husband did to his only sister for Fame. It was repulsive, disgusting, just plain sad, and worst of all—unforgivable. The masses get it too, I’m team nobody. I find Teresa, brass, rough around the edges and sometimes a snob. However, I believe her heart is immense, and she has the “it” factor. Thank god, you Melissa, do not. That is your karma. I believe while she has always known what Melissa was about, I believe she didn’t know she would sink to the depth she did, while she was in a personal horrific nightmare with Joe problems, and worse yet, that her brother would help her do it. We watched it in real time so we saw the gossiping and the manipulation (brilliant btw Melissa) with Teresa’s friends. Every chance you got, you would coyly bring up Teresa’s problems then start the angst churning. Every bloody chance. But Teresa thought it was just Melissa, once again stalking her life and trying to replace her which has been her obvious pattern.
The one thing that’s Melissa can’t win is her in laws. She “aint gonna” manipulate them. Look, obviously they love both their kids the SAME, but they know what’s up. Why do you think the first episode (baptism) Joe was at his father’s feet screaming and crying to recognize him. The show’s gossip and tear Teresa apart hadn’t started yet. They already held Melissa in contempt and didn’t wanna be around her folks. We saw it at the gym too. As obvious as the nose on your face. Oh and it’s killing her not to be able to manipulate them and talk trash about them too. If Melissa could, she would rip them apart for that, gossip on the show, tell her mignons, get everybody worked up incl her husband, Kathy, Caroline, etc, but even SHE knows that’s too far with us and her husband. She just pretends it isn’t there and demurely says in interviews “they come over once a week”. No TERESA could pound this fact out, using ANYTHING to make Melissa look bad, like Melissa has done to Teresa without MERCY, but she doesn’t. Teresa doesn’t. The good guys always win in the end, and Melissa and Joe won’t win. Teresa will survive and I for one will support anything she does. The self centeredness and cruelty Melissa was willing to dish out for fame was without mercy. Her husband joined her and if I were Teresa I wouldn’t forgive them. Melissa now talks about her kids as Teresa’s nieces and she should feel bad? That is a JOKE, what do you think she’s been trying to do to her nieces Mommy since the day they faked the scene about coming up with the idea to have a singing career in her closet? This will eat at them slowly and hopefully God forgives Melissa and Joe. This last stunt Joe pulled with waiting for the cameras crew to SHOW UP in his house to tell Melissa “you know what my sister said to me the other day? And Melissa said back “no, what” Another blogger astutely pointed this out- she already knew! She said the night Teresa said it to her brother, he came home and cried. So they actually set that scene up with Melissa already knowing and Joe said, “you know what Teresa said THE OTHER DAY?” Melissa said shyly “noo, what??” They actually must have had the conversation to reenact it.! That was past the point of human decency and for what point? To make his sister look bad. All for fame and her stupid singing career. Melissa asked “why do you have to belittle it?” Is she serious, ok Melissa dear, how about because you tried to put Teresa face down in the dirt for that middle aged pop star career. Not gonna happen. I never thought I would say this in a million years, & quite frankly, I have never even thought this about anyone, but I will enjoy watching karma catch up with you. You rustled up The Teresa haters, but all real celebs have them..Have you read Bethenny’s hate mail? Wow….The pain Melissa has caused to her nieces is past the point of return, Melissa wants to play nice now because she’s finished. She did it, and now she sees her husband without his family. Too late Melissa, we won’t forget and I hope Teresa does NOT forgive. The only decent one in the bunch is Jaqueline,,,you even managed to engulf her. YOU were pulling the strings, you! Caroline & thugs (all failing) and Kathy not taking off with a bakery empire were your perfect storm.
Teresa, if you are reading, most of us see through Melissa and what she has done. The shock bloggers on here, just ignore, you actually need them kid. Let em write it away, that’s what is gonna spin you off to your own show. Leave Melissa and your good for nothing, little man brother (the wanna be) in the dust. They lost the right to call you family. Get through this stupid season and leave the women who were so jealous of you they couldn’t breathe in your history. Jac is trapped in The Manzo family, bitter, bitter, fester, fester,,,Melissa has enjoyed your pain. I think those 3 years you were a star and she was just sitting there with no one looking at her, she worked herself into a jealous monster. Keep your children away; she is capable of most anything manipulatively. The areas get gray and she’ll stop at nothing with your brother for fame and to drop more very mediocre songs. As my husband said, your brother is despicable, and a woos.
This show is so mean this year. There's Teresa who is obviously about to have some kind of breakdown because of all the stress she's under (a la Camille Grammer, season 1 of RHOBH) and a bunch of nasty cows gossiping away, trying to get her even more worked up. Melissa, you really do seem like a nice enough person but just going on the show in the first place shows that fame is your top priority. On a different show perhaps I would have liked you. Teresa is awful to you but I just can't get past your whole fame chasing behavior.
So when your sisters have an opinion or something to say about Joe do you run back and tell him? Bottom line he started this brawl, if he really wants a happy family he would have kept his mouth shut and just ignored what she said. But happy families don't get good ratings, and I'm sure you both know that...
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 18 out of 21 of my friends who watch absolutely hate her, that it's not the norm. Stats have it. The Bravo poll lthe other 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: 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 daughter 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 want to everyone to move on NOW, after you worked your manipuklation and put your brotehr's wife through hell and you showed no mercy. Well it doesn't work that way. I will never support anything you do. Let the Teresa haters write whatever they want. The real people (the consumers) obviosuly show what they want and who they want. You young lady have hurt someone in your family for sport, because you wanted to be a star, and yoou 'act" at the reunion shows us all exactly who you are. You may reach somewhere high in the charts the week yous et up a stupid dinner scene with you scrawny, asinine, little man husband, but it's not longevity. The bad guys never win and YOU my dear, are teh bad guys. Your husband's family will never be the same and both of you have a lot of years to sit in it after the Gorga Sr's are gone.
Melissa, it is so obvious that Teresa is jealous of you. She is jealous of your marriage too but I think she is more jealous of you. I like how she tried to blame Richie for Joe's black eye. Joe tried to grab his balls. It looks like nobody can talk to those two because they think they are above everyone. How sad for them. At this point, I do believe you gave her more chances than you should have. Family does not make up rumors about family. That is exactly what she does and she always tried to wiggle her way out of it blaming someone else. Take care and glad to hear that you have a great relationship with your in-laws!!! I'm sure it infuriates Teresa.
The wonderful thing about being on a reality TV show is that eventually everyone's true colors show. Melissa, you are a class act!!
All I needed to hear was what you said on WWHL Sunday night when asked how your relationship was with Teresa before joining RHWNJ and you gave the million dollar answer... You said your relationship was bad before coming on the show. Who in their right mind would come on a reality television show with a family member that they were and have been having problems with other than to cause more problems. Please don't get me wrong I understand you guys are human and we should be careful to judge but honey YOU did this to yourself and your family. If your relationship was so bad maybe you should have concentrated on working on it without the cameras but what fun would that have been, right?
