Melissa Gorga

Melissa isn't afraid to call out Joe when he does something wrong.

on Sep 9, 20130

Hi, everyone! We finally moved to Franklin Lakes. I feel like I have been unpacking for days. I can’t rest until every single thing is in place. The kids were so nervous to start their first day at a new school today. It’s the little things in life that make you smile, and watching Gino go to his first day at kindergarten still has me smiling. I’m going to miss him so much during the day. I hope all of your children have a great school year!
 
We’re getting down to the home stretch of the season. This episode reminded me how much water has gone under the bridge in our family. We came a long way in Arizona with a long way yet to go.
 
The high wire was not for the weak of heart or calf muscle. As Rosie said, “It’s not about the wire.” Having to lean on Teresa was an exercise in trust. The high wire did force us to support each other at least in a physical sense. Teresa and I got farther than anyone else, so props to us.

We don't like you melissa all you talk about is teresa teresa teresa. When you try your hardest to make people believe that she is the devil or scum or that she even started the rumors its a LIE. Leave her alone nobody cares who started it. Why don't you spend the time with your family on some episodes instead of pushing everyone to believe your sister in law is the devil. Your a pig for treating your FAMILY like that. If teresa and your husbands parents don't like you there is a reason for that if your such a great person then they would love you lol your fake and we all see it. Please please please do america a favor and leave the show so I can enjoy everyone else :)

Not therapy ugh on your Birthday!! JOE Listen to what your wife wants, are ya kidding me...I would have been out of sorts too! Girl take a private holiday with your man and no one else!

Is it me or does Melissa show no real affection to Joe Gorga anymore. This episode she has be acting like she doesn't want to be near him. I really believe that she is getting sick of him...and if and when she gets her own MONEY she will probably leave him...and write a book about it...LOL!

Melissa,

You are very pretty and I love your shape after three babies. I think you and your hubby make a very nice couple seriously. You got it going on. You do....But sweetheart and I mean that in a really nice way. You can't sing. I think you you think you could but really, no you can't sing. I know I can't sing but you cannot sing. Or you could sing but it doesn't sound right. I feel bad for you and you may just need classes? I don't know? it may work? Try it. It may.  Sorry

:-(

Mellisa singing is not for you  I feel as you love the down fall of Teresa and never did want Teresa and her brother to

get back together. Joe your husband cannot see you for what you are a trouble maker. Your pass will get out.

I am in no way a Teresa fan. She really bugs me most of the time. You all bug me sometimes, but she the most. And I'm not "team" anyone because that's just ridiculous, BUT whether you like it or not your toast came off as a deliberate snub. Did you see your husbands face when you said "cheers"? He looked devastated. I could tell even he thought you snubbed Teresa and he looked very upset and didn't even really raise his glass. My brother and I are very very close and there are plenty girlfriends he had that I did not get along with, but for my brothers sake we were always civil towards one another. I can see in Joe's face how much he loves his sister but you are his wife and the mother of his children so of course he's going to have your back through anything but I think it's killing him that you all can't be close. And this season it seems like you are the one making the little snide comments on the side. Just throw all this shit away and get to being at least civil with Teresa for your husbands sake. It's really sad. You both have to stop the little comments here and there or you will NEVER get along. And I'm starting to wonder now if you even do want to get along with them. You can't keep your husband from his family, not saying that's what you want but it comes across that way at times. So why don't you just say "ya know what Joe I'm not comfortable with it but why don't you just go and have lunch/dinner/drinks whatever with your sister." Because that is what they need. It hurts me to see a brother and a sister that were so close be torn apart like this, because of the relationship I have with my brother I could not even imagine something like this happening to us. It truly is sad. I hope one day you guys can actually get to a genuine happy place with one another.

I have never gone to a venue that caters to children, (like Dylan's Candy Bar), and thrown back shots with my toddler sitting next to me.

 

That's just....I don't know what to call that. Hmmmmmm....

What did Joe Gorga mean by "a woman who looks like that"?  I thought she looked fine.

Melissa, you are absolutely my favorite singer. I think you are great! Right up there with Celine Dion and Streisand.. Ok, just kidding. Just wanted to see if everyone is awake and paying attention. Tee hee.

Sorry, Bravo but I turned the channel after watching Johnny Wright & Mel trying desperately to sing.  Just too painful.

Well, who is the bigger fool?  Joe Gorga or Johnny Wright?  Like Caroline, I'm going crazier by the minute.  Melissa, in your recording studio or at least I thought it was your bought & paid for by your husband studio, you really sounded just awful.  And we all know with the release of you performing at the radio station, that those "vocals coaches" didn't seem to help at all.  I will agree with Joe Gorga that maybe not looking like a thoroughbred, you sure in the heck sounded like one.  Johnny Wright.......well, Melissa thought she was like Michael Jackson, so now maybe Justin Timberlake?  If enough people say that you are dead, it's time to lie down. Holy crap even Danielle sings much better than "wanna be rock star Melissa".  I've heard alley cats carry a better tune.

Melissa, no blog for the latest episode? You have even more material to blog about now--the "high powered" music producer came to your home studio and once again you proved that without AutoTune you are pitchier than any of those docile Arizona horses that terrified you two episodes ago. Here you had a perfectly good chance to BLAME TERESA but for unfathomable reasons you passed! Still all was not lost, because even though your husband admitted that Penny was a strange bird, not worthy of sharing the trust high wire activity, both of you STILL would rather believe this leathery hag with the over processed hair and mismatched halves of a face beautician over Teresa. Oh "I'm begging you on my knees, PLEASE PLEASE PEASE make it stop," Bravo, these tired story lines of your no-go singing career, your husband STILL letting his ever so sluggishly grinding mental gears convince him that "this just doesn't add up--it's GOT to be Teresa behind those mean tweets" about his "loyal wife," and those two haggard tar-and-nicotine-poisoned faced brassy blondes STILL trying to get on the show by creating molehills that YOU turn into mountains--"SEE, I have her NUMBER! Her house phone AND her cell phone number!" as if this proved Teresa's guilt in the rumors about you as well as all her 39 indictments.(Sorry, lisanash, Penny is aging like a woman who has smoked way too many cigarettes and spent way too many hours in the tanning bed, causing her to look 20 years older than she is.) You're the brains of the Gorga family, Melssa, and I'm begging you on my knees to let these tired plot lines die for good, get your husband's brain on something else (no, not Tarzan), convince all the wives to quit shopping at Posche, and cook up something new! I swear everyone can agree that the only part of the last episode that wasn't a snooze was watching Big Joe grill steaks and have some great laughs with Rosie

Read an article that you and Penny made up and you asked her to set Teresa up in exchange of boosting her salon image and sales....Melissa you have sold your soul to the devil....

You claim you want to put issues to rest. You were happy to spread rumors about Tre and her husband, you were happy to help Danielle. But you somehow want to blame your stripper rumors and cheating rumors on Tre. Jan didn't take your crap and you backed down; makes me think she might be telling the truth

Joe Gorga said something tonight that did not sit well with me. He was referring to the blonde chick with the crazy pony tail. He said something to the effect of "anyone that looks like that..." Looks like what? Looks like a normal middle aged woman? There was NOTHING wrong with the way this woman looked (unless you think faux pony tails are weird).  I just have a problem with men making flippant comments about how women look. In this case, a woman who clearly hasn't had any work done, but appeared to be aging like a normal middle aged woman. She didn't look bad, she didn't look awesome. Some women choose not to inject their cheeks, lips and whatever else until they look alien-like. Is Joe Gorga so used to this crazy look that he thinks it's normal and anything less is unattractive? Fake is not normal, or beautiful. Truly beautiful women don't use fillers. Truly beautiful women don't need it. There is something really beautiful, and natural about not being overly injected and with a truck load of makeup.

The show tonight is just BULL.... Again Teresa is being set up.  When will it stop?  It is getting boring.  And you should stop trying to sing.  You just don't have a voice but you do  have a family.

Please stop trying make people think you can sing. Maybe in the shower. You should get real with yourself instead of making excuses. Your conceit makes me ill. You are NOT all that. You and Theresa have similar ego's.

Melissa for your sake I hope this Sunday will end the rumors.  You did slight some during your toast like it or not.

You did....when a host toasts it should be for the intent to all at the table.  While I am not a Teresa fan the truth is what it is.  The show has become a dirty soap opera show and many are angry and fed up.  Bravo pay attention to the viewers. NJH has had it.

Must you lie about everything?  According to Richie, he and Kathy got the farthest.  In fact he tweeted you were delusional.

 

Time for Bravo to take out the Trash!

Just confront the rumors and move on.  Don't involve anyone else in it and shut these people down. If you and your husband find out things about his sister let him handle it.  He might choose to forgive if she is involved or just not speak to her again.  Let that be his choice. The four of you might just have to learn to act civil to each other for your family and your children when out in public.

Hey...what's the big "mystery" behind the source of the rumors??? Didn't Missy's bestie; Jan, tell Melissa, Joe and anyone else who would listen, about Missy's parking lot exploits? Mystery solved...right? I really don't get this story line. I mean, I get the overall intent, since its been the same dark & dysfunctional theme for the PAST THREE SEASONS... But WHYYYY??? I implore you, Bravo. Please lose this story line. It's whack as hell!!!

Your husband said that Teresa was trained by their parents to behave a certain way and Teresa was wrong to be that way. What a terrible thing to say about his parents parenting! He's why there is a wall up w his parents. I guess he's going to write the next Tell All Our Family's Business book like you did.

Make him apologize for throwing a glass towards her, calling her scum, calling her garbage, calling her a bi*** allowing people to talk about her to him... I could go on for days. Then you can start apologizing for taking about her to your sisters, your fake girlfriends, the other housewives... I could go on for days. But Danielle said that she wishes you would just tell the truth.

 @pamboo13 She was sick and sick of therapy, who want's to do that for their Birthday? Of course she was out of sorts, if she had said therapy for my birthday, we would be raging on her so give the girl a break...geesh!!

 @lisanash

 It's Joe & Melissa's world.  It's o.k. for Joe Gorga to make rude & disgusting comments about men & women, but an entirely different story if it is about his own wife.  Joe Gorga is the man & sets the standard for how to treat women.  "Like a queen" except if you don't quite fit his idea of what a queen should look like.

@joejoe_no1  Concerning Josephine's mentality, I'm convinced that all of the lights are on, but no one's home.  As long as I've been alive, I've never seen a man treat his sister so horrific, and discuss his parent's personal business to the world.  He even allows others to trash his sister in front of him, without saying a word; what's even worse, he joins in the trash talk!  No one would ever disrespect me in front ot my brother, because he would never stand for it!  Where I'm from, a brother is considered a protecter, a support system, a good listener, and a loyal friend; not someone who embarrasses you, takes a strangers word over yours, and someone who wants to see you fail. That's sick, and in my opinion, he's not worthy of the respect of a real man, because his tacky behavior proves he's far from one.   He's an angel sent from God alright....

 I have no idea - she's too old to play singer. If she would have been trying to break into the business from a young girl, I'd give her a break, BUT she's only been singing for 2 years. She's an affront to all talented singers who never got their shot. I don't know why he's wasting his time.

 No one will ever say anything to him or talk about his violent outbursts. If that was Juicy the whole crew would be screaming about what an animal he is and calling him a ticking time bomb. They probably would have called the police on him for almost taking someone's eye out.
