Melissa Gorga

Melissa explains why things got so bad on the Lake George retreat.

on Jul 15, 20130

Joe and I were skeptical about the retreat from the start. I know that everyone wanted us to walk in, put on a happy face and say that everything would be okay, but that’s just not reality. There have been too many times when we put a band-aid on our issues with Teresa, and we would always fall back to the same negative place. We decided if we were going to go to this retreat, we weren’t going to be fake. We didn’t want to throw a blanket on the problems that were hurting our family.

It may have seemed harsh, but we were being real and we truly wanted to get to the bottom of the problem. That was obviously not going to be easy. When people don’t want to be honest and pretend they want to fix things you can never really move forward. There were so many ugly things being said about us and we just wanted it to stop.

Melissa you really showed your true colors on the retreat. I would be surprised if you didn't lose a lot of fans.

Hey! Here is an great product that Teresa doesn't have in her Product Lineup..JOE'S MANSPRAY FOR HAIR!!  Comes in black, brown, blond, silver, salt and pepper, and Ginger (redheads)...except need to work on the formula to make sure it doesn't come off on people like it did in the fight...

Melissa, I can totally see where you are coming from.  I would be very skeptical too if I were you.  Theresa has always said she wants the fighting to end but then she hangs around these loser women who say horrible untrue things about you.  Theresa is always there and so are the cameras.  But it seems Theresa has finally "hopfully" realized that trying to split you two up does not work and only creates misery.  You have forgiven her and been open to moving on many times in the past and Theresa has said she would like to move forward too.  But it always seems like she pulls a fast one.  Hoping this time it all works out for you.

Melissa you looked absolutely crazy during that whole retreat. first you go there determined not to fix anything and actually try make it worse then you do that whole dramatic thing on your knees?! you have serious issues. but your plan didn't work because as soon as you weren't there to whisper in joes ear, him and Teresa started get along and you looked pissed. that's why you got soo drunk because you didn't know what to do with yourself.

Melissa....this whole drama staerted because Your Joey could not spend quality time with his parents...it would have been a break for you to allow the kids some time with their DAAD and his parents...along with their aunt...and cousins..... what is it about this arrangement that bothers daughter in laws...you spend time like this with your mom and sisters all time,

Did anyone see what I seen right before the fight?? Melissa was setting in the window and looking out she never said anything about joe coming at the door very angry. Rich seen it and trie to warn Joe G. why didnt Melissa? I'll tell you why she wanted that to happen. And the whole bit with you getting on your knees that was done as a show for the camera and to make ur husband feel soory for you. I can not beleive he as not woke up and realized ur the problem!!! yes Teresa has done things wrong but you keep the hate going in your ur husband. And you can not blame Tereas for what people say to her about you. People kow your not getting along and thats why they coe to her. She didnt say the stuff. So stop adding fuel to the fire and let teresa and joe work it out. Your afraid they will and that you will be left out. It clear by the way ou wont let me talk without you. you have to be here to say ur 2 cents and not let them work it out. Get a life tere brotherand sister!!!!

OMG, I'm sorry I don't agree with most of you, I use to be on Theresa side, even bought her first book, but after the reunions, everytime there's a problem with Melissa and Joe, it's because Theresa is in it!!!! She's always talking about Melissa being a gold digger, being a stripper, not a good singer, etc., etc., Why is it that she just can't be happy for her brother, he loves his wife, he chose her, she's given him beautiful children, I only have two brothers, if I were her I would put my brother before her crazy, instigating friends (Kim D).......  I'm nolonger on Theresa side, she's crued, she's nasty and especially talking about her brothers situation in front of her kids.  She has no respect, respect is earned.   Just my take on it.  Melissa you are a good wife and mother, don't let anyone say you're not.

Whether you are doing it intentionally or not you are contributing toward harming Joe and Teresa's relationship. You need to stop talking about Teresa. You are defined by your behavior not hers.

Melissa, I agree with these comments.. Up until last epidose, I was siding with you, but now I see the true you and you are SAD.....Your a joke and a wanna be....Singing, writing books, gimme a break, you should stick to stipping, after all you only have a couple of yrs. before that all goes south too........Pathetic you are

melissa you are absolute disgusting. you are a DISGUSTING person. After watching the show, I think you are a horrible person.  If you were in my family, I would ruin you.

I think Melissa is probably writing all the comments that support her and deride Teresa herself.  All seem to be in the same sort of vein and I would not put anything past Melissa - she is pure bile!

For goodness sake Amy.Bogert Melissa is fake, fake and more fake.  She was play acting for the camera and to make her husband split completely with his sister who she is not only jealous of but who she fears will get proof to expose what her stripping and cheating.  I cant see her writing a book because a0 nobody would buy it and b0 it would be one lie after another one - the only person who cant see that is her husband - I feel sorry for him!

Melissa...I see your side completely. This situation is a long build up of years of hurt and pain. It is obvious you have reached your breaking point, as can be expected. I have little sympathy for Teresa simply because she never seems to take responsibility for anything. I think you have tried to sit back in the past and encourage your husband to work things out with Teresa but it always seemed to backfire on you because she gets involved with people who are out to hurt you. It is a very sad  situation. But I give you credit for trying in past seasons and probably years before that. I am not saying you are without fault. But it is clear to me that you love your family and wish things would be different. But you cannot be a punching bag and continue to be knocked down by anyone, even if it is family. Good Luck to you

Melissa, you need to get on your knees again and ask Jesus for forgiveness. You destroyed a family and continue to do so. How dare you come between siblings? If they need to argue, let them. It's not your relationship - it belongs to them. Long before you. Let them own it. You are terribly insecure and if you watch yourself throughout all of the episodes, you will hopefully begin to understand that it's you that makes these two siblings hurt even more. Hopefully somebody, if not many, will put you in your place before this season ends. Let them be to resolve their problems. Don't be surprised in life if they argue with each other again at some point - that's family sometimes - don't involve yourself. Your in-laws have every right to be ashamed of you. You should be ashamed of yourself. And watch out - when you children see all of this someday, the karma of it all will be their shame for you also. What are you doing? Think about it all......

On a lighter note, good for JoeGo admitting in the talking head that the black substance was his spray and laughing about it.

 

The interview may have been at a later time when he had more perspective but I was chuckling along with him.

You did everything you could to keep your mini-man away from his family.  You played the victim, you lied about your famous sister in law, you constantly put things in your "man's" ear and you fought tooth and nail at every chance that it looked like they might be getting close.

 

When Dr. V asked you what your issues were......you had nothing to say. You know why? Because you couldn't say, "I'm an insecure, jealous, selfish woman with major Daddy issues."

 

After Teresa was crushed yet again by your mini-man, she still reached out to him to talk.  But you couldn't have that, right Messy?  You couldn't give her time alone with her ONLY brother because you wouldn't be in control of the conversation.  You couldn't pull his strings if you weren't next to him whispering in his ear.

Did anyone notice in Joe Gorgas one on one, he said he hated Joe Gudicie for 10 years? Then WHY would he come on the show? Oh I know why! Because him and his snake wife wanted to get famous like Tersa!!!1

Melissa is always in some way going to find a way to keep Teresa and her brother apart she needs to keep her mouth shut, but unfortunately as long as he is with Melissa, Teresa and her brother will never be close and that's a damn shame that Joey will let his gold digging wife Melissa get in between his family.

you are such a fake person and you are the poison so jealous of Teresa and wanting everything she has, I can't stand the level on which you have brought this show!!!   You need to stop your evil ways and stop being jealous Teresa because this episode shows just how much you really are...You are Poison

Last week at the end of the show when the fight began, Joe Gorga said to Joe Guidice during the fight, This is for Cheating on My sister, but it was edited out this week at the beginning of the show same fight and not a word of it during any one's conversation, why is that.

Quoting the lyrics from your song: "Everybody wanna see me fallEverybody wanna bring me downEverybody wanna steal my crownBut it's not going down...

Everybody got something to sayGo head and post it upOn the blog sites, put it up, on the headlinesIt dont matter what you say I'm still gonna shine

On Display, on display..."

 

If you say so...but truthfully, you brought your ownself down. Also, your are not shining in the most brightest of lights right now. Talk about being fully, "can't get any wider" (jejejej) ugly behavior exposed and put on display. [Singing in my Teresa voice]: On display, on display, each and everyday, everyday...

Ooops.  I meant "I'm not saying most of the others HAVEN'T done a few of the following." 

 

And, one more thing:  Teresa always runs away after ramping up the conflict.  Isn't that another indictment of her?  Stay and face the music and get things resolved.  But no.  She can't stand the heat.  Because she can't be held accountable.

Melissa needs to have Joe Gorga divided from his family b/c that's the only way she can continue to put all that garbage in his head about his family.....She is nothing but an instigator and unhappy about her own life and issues with her childhood so she gets joy out of making sure others around her are unhappy.......Please go spray pant your husbands head and just be quiet.

Did anyone else notice Joe shove/push Mellisa out of the way to have another go at Joe G!? that is a great example of a happy marriage....smh...in addition, all mellisa wanted to do was high tail it out of there the whole time to hold on and further the divide between the siblings because she has more of an issue with Tre than she pretends not to have...she was mean muggign Dr.V the whole time bc she DOES not want to move forward...any Mellisa fans have got to admit after this past episode that Mellisa is more of an issue than any one else from getting on her hands and knees to spouting off like a baby her last name is Gorga...hitting Joe G in the face....calling Tre names....cmon...you have got to be blind not to see that!

You are so jealous (and so is your husband) that you match Teresa's green gown.  You have brought this show to the lowest point ever and you are disgusting.   I hope Bravo cans you along with Richie Wakile.

Gosh it was so hard to watch last nights episode & I believe you need to step away & let Theresa & your hubby work it out together. I just wrote on Theresa's blog that you & her hubby are holding the two back on mending their relationship. They are the main source & they should've went on that retreat alone first where nobody would've been able to meddle in their relationship. As far as Theresa walking away for the fight I think was ok & ppl handle stress situations differently & after your hubby charged & started attacking her hubby you can't just point the finger at anyone for not reacting the way you think she should've. Removing yourself from a physical fight between men is the right thing to do for a woman. You just made it so much more dramatic egging them on & just added more fuel to fire. You never said to Theresa help your husband you just said help your brother & later you claimed you said help your husband. You was just worried about your hubby & could've cared less about Theresa's. then when they wanted to do what they should've done in the first place (talk alone) you refused to leave the room. Don't you get it? Step away & stop holding them back! Theresa wouldn't have hurt or killed joe she was no threat to him & they needed to be alone in the first place. You say all Theresa cares about is writing books & making money, but you are doing the same. First your singing career now I think two books, so what does that say about you? You can't point the finger when you are doing the exact same thing. It's just so sad that you & Theresa's hubby are holding them back from working things out as brother & sister. Back off!

Teresa's sister-in-law (because that's all you really are), I hope you are cringing at home, knowing last nights episode aired.  Even Caroline gave you a look when you said there was no hope of Teresa and Joe reconciling, all the while they were hugging in the other room, and you weren't there to intervene!!!!! The gig is up.  Your true intentions have been exposed and there's no more blame shifting onto Teresa. If you had half a brain, you would of befriended her a long time ago.  Epic fail on your plan.

 If she was in my family she wouldn't have any teeth left! She is the most manipulative piece of trash I have ever seen! She is still complaining about stripper gate but she is the one who came on the show. She wanted fame & she got it, & everything that comes with it. Including your past being revealed!!

 @lakehouse214 What??? Why the hell should Tre stay and listen to her brother trash her? Her brother does not have to call her names to resolve things! If he would talk like a civilized human being, then she would stay and listen! But when the humiliating name callings starts, she is done! As she should be!

 @lakehouse214 Is she supposed to stand there while her idiot brother calls her scum?  He always does that - he makes disgusting comments to her and then when she leaves, he says "Yeah, that's right , leave".  I guess he thinks she's supposed to just stand there silently while he trashes her.

 I'm saying it to LuvBravo because of what SHE wrote. She was condoning physically fighting and to me that is NEVER acceptable. That's my opinion. 

@ LuvBravo, Teresa has dished out her portion also  I'm  not going for that I'm innocent bit.  I have eyes and ears and have seen her dish it out from season one to now.  Melissa is just the target for now.  Not that Melissa is innocent but it goes both ways with those two.
