Jan and Penny's Ridiculous Rumors

Melissa shares her thoughts on the confrontation at the Milania Hair Care event.

Thank you all so much! I’m overwhelmed. It’s such a huge honor to be here. First of all, I’d like to thank the Academy for giving me this incredible award. Thanks to my co-stars. You make me look good! Special thanks to all of the back-stabbers, trouble makers, gossipers, and sh-- stirrers out there! You’ve made me what I am today! Truly!



LOL! I would love to be as great an actress as my former friend claims. Actually as far as you’re concerned Martin Scorsese, I am! Well, that was a bizarre and confusing night. I’m sure you are just as dizzy as I am. Teresa and I had already talked about the rumors and she told me to just “ignore it.” So I was surprised when she called and suggested that her launch party would be the “perfect time” to confront the people that have been spreading these lies about me. It was a long time since we’ve been together as a family and supporting one another. I knew it was going to be a big night for her and I didn’t understand why she even allowed them to come in the first place.


As you can see I don’t like to be confrontational. I’ve learned to step around the pit when the snakes are hungry. But I couldn’t avoid a confrontation this time. The magazine cover. The rumors. I had to deal with it head on to make it stop. Like Teresa said, we need to do what Dr. V. suggested and be a united front and back each other up.  In that regard, it was a missed opportunity. I would have loved it if Teresa said something to back me up. Then again, she didn’t have to. No one had to. I could have just stood there silently, nodding along as Jan and Penny revealed themselves to be exactly what they are. Their stories had more holes than a punchboard. Why would “people” ask questions about me to someone I’d never met? It just doesn’t add up.


Didn’t you love Joe’s expression during that whole conversation? It was priceless. He was on the verge of laughing in their faces. The whole thing was a joke! When we were watching the episode, it was like Comedy Night at the Improv.  Joe is my united front. He always backs me up!Jan and I, along with a lot of other people, hung out when we were young. We partied and went to clubs. I got married at 25 and had my baby girl at 26. My partying days were behind me and a lot of my old friendships faded. It happens.

Accusing me of having “skeletons under my bed” is just ridiculous. Like what? When I was a teenager, I went to clubs? I kissed a boy before Joe? Stop the freakin’ presses.

It’s all true. Once upon a time, I was young and had fun. You got me! Now I’m older and I have another kind of fun with my husband and three children. Yes, I’ve changed! As bad as I am at counting, I know there’s a difference between 21 and 34.

The bottom line: Jan and I were friends for five minutes, a million years ago. We grew apart. She chose to lie about me for 15 minutes. Whatever. I wish her well and God bless.To see the gorgeous back cover shot of Joe on Love Italian Style, check out my Instagram and Twitter. For my book tour schedule and events, go to my website. I’m so excited that my book will be out in less than a month! You can preorder order it now! There are lots of sexy secrets, including how to text in five different positions without typos (just kidding).

XOXO,
Melissa

Teresa: We Love Hard, We Fight Hard

Teresa Aprea shares her thoughts on the finale and this season.

Hi loves,

I must say this was another hard one to watch. Sometimes we do things in life out of anger that we regret later, and this episode was one of those times. As far as Teresa goes, this episode was devastating. To see the sentencing being announced and reactions from cast mates was really sad. Our hearts go out to Teresa, Joe, the kids, and their family! 

The Ladybug event was so much fun to work on with the girls. It's such a great charity and Dina has worked so hard on it for years. I loved seeing the kids walking down the runway and of course my Giovanni looked so gorgeous with his little Ladybug slippers on. I am happy that Teresa and I are in a good place now and she knows that I am here for her if she needs anything. Sometimes the best thing to do is put the past in the past and move forward. You can't change people. Some people apologize and move on and with some people you know that they never meant to intentionally hurt you, so you move on together. My husband and Joe Guidice get along great as well. We all have to support one and other and I am grateful that we are all in a good place.

Watching Amber cut her hair and move forward from one of the hardest times in her life was so beautiful, especially sharing that moment with Jim, her kids, and her mom. I love my husband so much. Watching him and Amber talk just shows the heart my husband has and I appreciate Amber calling him over to squash any issues. My husband is a good man and that's why he and I could never be apart for long, because anyone that knows him, knows how good he is.

This season was a great experience. There were some great moments and some moments that I would never want to relive. As I have said this season, we love hard and we fight hard, and in the end, everything always comes together. Nicole and I were happy to have the opportunity to clear some things up on WWHL last night. Happy to put things to rest and move on to bigger and better moments together.Nicole and I worked with stylist Jennifer Dayan from IFoundASecret.com and we loved the pieces that she chose for us last night! 

We have so many exciting projects coming up! Our new website should be launching soon, you can check it out at http://www.nicoleandteresa.com/. Like us on our Facebook fan page: https://www.facebook.com/NicoleandTeresa or follow me on Instagram @TeresaAprea or on Twitter @TeresaA_RHONJ.

On behalf of me and my family, we thank you for welcoming us both for our first season of RHONJ and stay tuned for the upcoming reunion!

Ciao babies, 

Teresa
