Melissa Gorga

Melissa Gorga still feels bad that Antonia missed the bus on her first day of school.

on Sep 11, 20120

Hi!
 
Well, let me start by saying we filmed the reunion this past week, and boy oh boy words cannot even explain the craziness. That day is probably the hardest part of being a Housewife and being on Bravo. We got through it, and I am so glad it's over. It was pretty emotional and very intense, but it feels like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders.
 
Knowing what’s to come in the season finale, this episode makes me happy and sad at the same time. When I called a truce with Teresa, I meant it. I truly wanted to put all the past behind us and start with a clean slate. I wanted to forget about all the vindictive things that went on between us and move on for our children and our family. I was putting my two feet forward and giving the relationship my all. I didn't want to go back to where we were in the past. We made a promise to move forward, and that's exactly what I did. You will soon see that wasn’t the case for Teresa.
 
The play date with the cousins was so much fun. How gorgeous were Antonia, Gabriella, and Milania? They are all so precious. What a great day we had together! The girls loved it and loved being together. To be honest, Teresa is the reason we even live in Montville. Joe and I sold our house in Franklin Lakes so that we could move to a town that we would have family in and so our kids could go to school with their cousins. I grew up with so many cousins, and I wanted my children to have that bond. I wanted them to have those relatives that would support them up no matter what. That's how it should be.

I am all the way team Melissa, Kathy & Rosie!

Don't listen to these people Melissa. Teresa is a top notch  Narcissist!! If you don't know the definition look it up, really she fits every description. I do think she set you up it's very clear she did by her silly reactions.You are right as a sister in law she should have NEVER asked you because she knows the damn truth She has no clue what loyality means.what is even worse is that people stand up from here ugly ugly hateful behavior.  You and joe keep loving like you do . Screw everyone else you have a beautiful family and your both so lucky. God bless & Good luck with the new house.

I watched this show from Day #1 you were probably still in High School...Seriously your a joke!!!  Teresa was CLUELESS to this man and even Kim D. don't you watch facial expressions or are you too stupid?  Seriously, I can only PRAY that Bravo FIRES YOU JACQUELINE AND CAROLINE...you 3 deserve one another...3 trouble makers!

I'm gonna talk to you like your mom, you were wrong. Teresa actually had nothing to do with what happened at the fashion show and I hope when you saw the show you figured that out. I'm not a Teresa fan but anyone watching the last two shows knows she in this case was innocent. It saddens me that a brother and sister no longer are family and cousins have lost one another and for what? You were wrong and you  did not back Teresa  you let everyone attack her and I think it was you that said she should have stood up for you and in this case she did it was you that let her down, and Caroline and Jacklyn well they both made it all worse all the way around. If you have a brain in your head you will see what all viewers with a brain saw this time Teresa was not to blame.

Give up singing.  Acting is your Forte. Why did you say in the bathroom "I'm going to call your Brother"? I would think the first referrence you'd make is "I'm going to call my HUSBAND".  It is so obvious you knew exactly what was going to go down that night.  Your face expression is of a woman who can hardly contain herself.  You were ready to grin ear to ear.  You are loving this and soaking it up...... all the way to the bank.

 

You, my dear, are a master, master manipulator.

 

PS....note to anyone who invites Melissa to a party....DO NOT THROW AWAY HER SPRINKLE COOKIES.

Melissa, this was a set up and poor theresa is taking the blame. So what if you were a dancer no one cares, it's just melious gossip. If you watched you saw that Kim was the one who set this up. I really think Theresa is innocent. Give the woman a break! She is taking a lot from you girls this year. I don't see her as a bad person but a victim of circumstance.

Obviously Theresa was the focus of the set-up, not Melissa. True, Melissa was "outed" as a former stripper, but that information was going to get out someday. (How could she be so missed by her former clients, if none of them would recognize her?) No, what spoke volumes to me was that Angelo made it a point to look at Theresa and say hello. He was supposed to make sure that everybody at the table was aware that he had spoken to Theresa before. Of course, the automatic leap would be that Theresa set Melissa up, but that isn't factual. Somebody played all of them, rather well. I am stil wondering if Melissa didn't do it herself, before the (ahem, cough, gag) True Hollywood Story special she wants so badly dug it up.

Melissa:  I am not completely convinced that you did put your "two feet forward" for a truce.  You came on to this show KNOWING FULL WELL that you were stepping on Teresa's toes. How did you expect that to go??

 

Now, Caroline has decided that this season Teresa will be her kicking post and she is quickly converting the rest of the Housewives to do the same.  If you truly were putting your issues aside, you should have shut Caroline down when the fight started in the hot tub.  Just told her to back off and have the conversation privately.  To be attacked in front of a crowd is humiliating and demeaning.  Teresa sat there and took it - she shot back when she was backed into a corner, but she did not run.

 

Okay, so you may or may not have been a stripper - WHO CARES??  You now have a husband that loves you and three lovely children.  Put it behind you and move in.  You just HAD to drag Joe and the other women into your tempertantrum.

 

I want so badly to like you, however, you make it very difficult.  Your ego is huge, you throw digs, and your loyalty is certainly questionable.

 

If you want to make things right with your sister in law, put it all aside and tell Caroline where

to get off along with her Mob.  Caroline brought Lauren to the show after Lauren jumped into the fight in CA.  Caroline had to be sure she out numbered Teresa.

Melissa.......I'm definitely Team Melissa & Team Kathy, but I have to take Teresa's side as Kim D.  orchestrated that whole set-up like a Pro to embarrass you & Joey, & I could tell that Teresa was totally blind-sided & being set-up!!!! Kim D. invited that sleezy guy to be @ the salon & fashion show to try & cause havoc on your life, by bringing-up your past. Kim D. is bad news & she used Teresa to do her dirty work!!!!!

From Beau Beau's corner:

Melissa,

I LOVE LOVE LOVE you girl!! Keep on keeping on as they say! Kim D set this one up. She is making a fool of herself. No one likes her. She always starts drama. She needs to cut her hair.it looks horrible! She's trying to look your age and she cant pull it off girl no way. If you did dance, do not feel bad aout it. I danced for a long time and loved it. Jesus knows what's in your heart sister. He knows we were making a living. Some peple are illiterate, and dont understand the industry. Be proud girl. You're talented, and God put that talent in your heart,the same as he put dancing and witing in my heart. We should be proud. Also, to the peplewo know nothing about dancing, we didn't prostitute, we danced! Entertained is what it's called.

Much Love from the south girl!

Melissa if Kim D. did set you up, it is probably because of what you did to her. Hiring her ex PR rep. and started the rampage about her and messing with her business according to Kim's story on Rumorfix. If you are going to attack someone's livelihood then you have to suffer the consequences. Rumorfix has the whole story including your tweets along with your nasty sister's. Stop trying to use this against Teresa. I don't think people really know you, you do put on quite a act!

I have never posted on any site & I signed up just for this. I am not sure you even read these blogs. It is such a shame to watch this latest show & know you & your husband are not talking to Teresa. It was obvious she did not set you up. She might not see that this entire situation was a set up but it was not from her end. She loves her brother, maybe not you so much, but definitely her brother. After your "makeup" she was very happy. Stay far away from sour grapes, Caroline - there is a reason so many have turned from her. Jaqueline doesn't have a clue to her own thoughts & Kathy is too insecure about being left out to know right from wrong. Let Teresa & her brother have a relationship....they are the only blood siblings in their family & life is too short. You all belong as a family at the end of it all no matter what outside influences try to do to you.

There is nothing you can do but stay away from Teresa you don't need her. She will ruin your life if you let her in.

The show started out with Kim calling you apologizing for her gossiping about your husband.  Than Caroline and Jackelyn are gossiping about you and Theresa in Kim's store in front of her.  WHY?  If there was a setup, Caroline and Jackelyn made it all happen in my opinion.  Time will tell.

Melissa - even though this was filmed a while ago and you say you haven't seen Teresa in a year, it can't be easy to rehash all this.  Bottom line - whoever outed the info is vindicitve and horrible.  I feel sorry for your kids and Teresa's kids - what happens in school and in your home town?- that's the sad part.  Keep your head up - no matter what you are a wonderful mother and wife.

I wouldn't be surprise if Caroline and Jacqueline set this whole thing up in the first place; remember they went to Kim d boutique first who knows what exactly was said to Kim d about Teresa. But its obvious Teresa was set up by Kim so everybody can be against her. I'm sure Caroline is having a blast on this episode. As for Melissa, Caroline doesn't care about you. she just wants you and Teresa to be enemies and everybody to be against her. Caroline is an old bitch. Remember Teresa its part of your family and the others are not they don't care.

Oh please, Teresa set you up? No, that's YOUR game. Teresa handled it way better than I would have after everything you're "tried" to do to her. She told him to stop, and where have YOU been for two seasons when Teresa has been ripped apart in EVERY SCENE YOU'VE been a part of (when you aren't singing, uhg) You sure weren't stopping anyone. Hmm, where were you,,,oh yea, you were the one RIPPING HER APART. What nerve you have. And you've been proven to be the one who set up Teresa with Danielle. I really hope you enjoyed your fifteen minuets because you've single handedly (well, with your husband) ruined this show,. Your attempts to ruin Teresa and slip into her life did not work. Everytime I see you all I want to do is support Teresa more. In fact, on Teresa's page a woman was raving about Teresa's new hairline products and we're going to order from the facebook page (Milania Haircare) on the day of the reunion. Thoie sales are on you, cha ching. I'd really like to write exactly what I think of you and yoru husband but I'm going to bite my tongue. Not to mention I hear your sisters are ruthless with your career and may just track me down. Lol. Thank god they can't touch Teresa's fans. You and your husband will not detour us. What you've done from the gate has been so disgusting, I cannot watch next year with you on. I just can't. You two stay so angry and ready to battle because you know you've lost. When you lie down at night, you know exactly what you've done...we all do.

Melissa, Don't be bamboozled! When Teresa tries to keep you from calling your husband next week, that is all I need to see.  We all saw it.  Teresa set you up to embarrass you; it is that simple.  We love you just the way you are and you are GREAT!

 

When you began to rise as a star, with the singing, loving husband, all on display, it was the straw that broke Teresa.  She cannot handle it.  Act as Betheney Frankel and silence is best.  Teresa tried to get Frankel to go back and forth over the so called "diety" remark for press.  But multi-milliionaire Frankel ignored Teresa.  Frankel's Skinnygirl brand is a mega-hit and Teresa's VIP's at the so called "launch party" include Juicy's brother and Dina Manzo.  Melissa, you are meeting with Ryan Seacrest on his radio show and Teresa is meeting with a judge to keep her "loving" husband out of JAIL!   You and Joe Gorga need to cut the losses to  your family and dump his sister from your lives and the lives of your children.  I hope you leave the toxic waste at the curb and live, love and enjoy!

If anyone watched the tape of the show they can see Teresa was set up. She was very respectful and even left the room rather than gossip about her sister in law. Melissa, no one cares what you did before, get over yourself. Maybe the other ladies should use some of the names that they called Teresa on themselves. She behaved well, no one else did.

Melissa dont you find it strange, one that Caroline is sitting at the table with Teresa in the first place, when she wouldnt even sit at the same table with her at the summer soltice party. Two that the first man who approached the table, Caroline immediatly turns to you and ask who that is, and then the second this guy comes to the table Caroline turns her body, starts a fake conversation with Lauren, and never acknowledges or appears to see this Angelo guy once? Then on top of it appears on WWHL and is asked where her dress came from and says Posche. That tells me she is still friends with Kim. This huge set up theory and all this anger towards Teresa, and nothing towards Kim D? I smell a rat, and its got red hair, and is so desperate to keep Teresa the villan, and Jaq as far away as possible from Teresa, she will go to any lengths....think about it...

Well watching the events that happened Sunday Night, Teresa didnt want to hear or know about it. Kim D obviously set her up by having the guy come to the table and say Hi to Melissa.After she said she promised no drama, they should have all known something was up when Kim D said that. Melissa you were right dont trust the Kim's they just want to be on the show. "Losers". Teresa flat out said dont talk about my family and left the room when Kim D asked questions. WTF? what was the smerk on Kim D's face.  Hope Teresa conforts Kim D and FYI, Jac should have minded her own business no need to get involved or make comments you dont see their cousin getting involved and she is family. SMH .

Not a huge fan of Teresa but it is obvious she was set up. It would be a shame that all the hard work put into your families reconnecting goes to waste because of this.

Why didn't you address the guy that came to the table? Who is he? Maybe it will be explained next epi but he came on this epi and no mention of him?

A lil ironic that Theresa has been accusing u of stripping the during the beginning of the season and yet she acts as though she's clueless through out this ordeal. I would be shocked if she did not have anything to do w/all this, but what is even more shocking is that she is willing to risk the family bond..........oh well, too bad for her.......move on GF cause u sure got it going on without even having to strip..........show them how it done SIsta.......looks like ur an awesome mom I only wish ur able to continue being there for the nieces...

you were wrong and you need to admitt it..did you not watch the show? tre was set up by kim d and did everything she could to stop it and protect you. i understand you thinking it was her from the history, but you saw what happened now, and need to 'woman' up and say your sorry. shame on you. and never thought i would be taking up for tre, ever, but this time, it was not her

 Who works ANYWHERE and forgets who their boss is?  REALLY?  And how dumb can you be going on national TV and never expecting it to come out?  Its pretty clear by Theresas reaction that she didnt know about this guy.  She is a lot of things, but one thing she is NOT is a good actress!  lol

Well Melissa, it can't be as bad as what you did to Teresa at the reunion last year, nor your connections with the mob what's her name - and you texting with her.

Come on Melissa, you've been pretty bad.

 

If it were my family member - I would have done what Teresa did. Keep my mouth shut and hope this idiot man never comes near her again. Wow! I hope this show doesn't end with you once again not siding with Teresa.

 

Outside of that, I think you guys have been doing pretty good. It was really fun to see. There's alot of scars to clear up, but considering Teresa being attacked by everyone - I think she should be allowed to take awhile longer to heal.

Don't you?

 

Hang in there and don't give up. Hopefully what we saw of Teresa regarding this ridiculous job you had in the past and Teresa not wanting to discuss to another person about her family -, you have seen as well.

It is not like you sat there and stuck up for Teresa when Carol was constantly putting Teresa down. You sat there. You may have not liked it - but you sat there and let it happen.

 

At the last reunion - you were encouraged by Carol and you encouraged Carol and Kathy etc.

Be nice Melissa - Teresa has alot more reason to be upset than any of you.

Keep your head up...it doesn't really matter what you did or did not do in the past.  All we see on the screen is an attentive mother and wife.  Obviously something else is going to happen in the final episodes to explain why you and Teresa are now on opposite sides again.  Sometimes you can't fix something that is broken.

I don't really care what you did in the past, the reason it's the past is because it's over, done! Who cares? But, I wish you just would have told Mr. Sleeze where   he could go and what to do when he gets there! For whatever reason, Kim D has it in for you, you really didn't like it when she called to invite you so that should be your first clue, she is toxic!

 @diane.siconolfigaugler I did watch facial expressions and Kim D knew AND set it up.. The guy was only hired at that salon where Kim D took her for ONLY ONE day. Those are the words that came out of the salon owners mouth.. Meanwhile the words that came out of the bald guys mouth he was THERE to set her up.. PERIOD, Melissa is a trouble maker for getting back stabber seriously?

 @akellim She did not do everything. Shecould have called Melissa before the fashion show to give her the heads-up about that snake Kim D for Devil., so Melissa could make her own decision to walk into Kim's snare.

 @ALasVegasHousewife  @valgal62 This set up has all of their names on it.  Imagine so much hate for another woman that they'd stoop to the level they have.  BTW... the Poshe Fashion Show is at the Brownstone this year.

@Nic01 @SunnyAZ_1 @ALasVegasHousewife @valgal62 There is an ongoing feud between the two stores. Apparently, Kim D's store is really the original Posche and yes, Melissa started promoting the other store only after Kim D fired her (Kim D's) PR person. It seems the fired PR person went on to represent the newer Posh as well as MELISSA! Small world, isn't it! Also, let's not forget the hair salon manager introduced Angelo as his salons PR Director. So, who do you think orchestrated the visit by Angelo to Melissa's table?? Sounds like Kim D!!

 @SunnyAZ_1  @ALasVegasHousewife  @valgal62  I've read that there is two store with similar names, Kim D. (Posche Boutique) and the other is called (Posh Boutique),which they refer to themselves as the real posh which Melissa promotes and there lye's the reason for the real reason for  the nastiness between Melissa and Kim.
