Melissa Gorga

Melissa opens up about the Joe vs. Joe fight.

on Jul 22, 20130

Hi everyone. I hope you are enjoying your summer. I can’t believe we are almost half way through!  I know these last few episodes have been very dark, but we had to go through what you are seeing to get to a better place.
 
When Teresa went out and told her husband what her brother called her, Joe Guidice came flying into the ballroom yelling and aggressive. Ten years of hurt and anger in my husband just exploded. He had reached his breaking point. Joe Giudice immediately demanded an apology when his wife was called “scum.” I wonder how he would have reacted if his wife were called, say, “stripper,” “cheater,” “skank ass beotch,” or “horsey face.” How about if he were called “pussy whipped” or that he “took it up the a-- with a strap on?” Joe said one word -- one syllable -- to his sister, right to her face, not behind her back or using other people to speak for him, and look at what happened?
 
The fight was about anger, frustration, and resentment. We held it in for so long that eventually we just broke down and couldn’t take it anymore. What Joe was trying to explain to his family is that when you speak negatively about his wife, it is disrespecting him. From the past few seasons, I think it’s clear that neither Teresa nor her husband will ever understand that.

CdnViewer, you are so right with what you said about Melissa. All she and Joe do is complain about nothing. I call her husband a pussy whip man if he is fool enough to sell a house because his wife don't want to live close to his sister any longer. Really they all are out of touch with life on that show including Caroline. Every one on that show need to thank Teresa they get a extra pay check. I don't always agree with Teresa but if you hate her to that point have you ever thought about getting off the show [NO] that is a check all of you will miss. Thank about it.

You need to buy yourself a MIRROR & just sit in front of it until you recognize YOU are the problem. There are so many worse problems in the world & with families than what is going on in yours but you continually want people to feel sorry for you. You have a wonderful, loving husband, 3 beautiful children, a great home & by the looks of things via your sister in laws success found a path to get onto a hit show & create not just 1 but 2 new careers.

 

Just for a second play along with me & walk in your SIL's shoes: How about Bravo finds someone in your family who is willing to sell you down the river just to create a career for themselves as long as they just make a mockery of you on national TV & tear your family apart. NO?

 

Then how about you go back to that mirror I suggested & look deep inside your soul & be thankful for all the blessings you have in your life. How about you actually use some of the godliness you proclaim to be so committed to & look inside for WHAT YOU HAVE CONTRIBUTED to this problem. LOOK deeper still & accept that no one person is responsible for this mess & that YOU have contributed to it.

 

From an outsiders perspective YOU are the problem but I'll give you benefit of the doubt IF YOU ARE WILLING TO ACCEPT PARTIAL RESPONSIBILITY & finally make an effort to correct your mistakes.

 

I get that you were driven by fame & greed & I'm sure Teresa & her parents can forgive that but to continue with this ongoing wish to position yourself as some sort of saint who viewers should constantly feel sorry for just isn't cutting it with the masses. YES, you'll gain some fans but I'd personally take Teresa or even Rosie over you any day b/c at least what you see is what you get with them.

 

I have had my fair share of misfortune losing family very young, having health issues & overcome it all. HOW? By recognizing even in bad situations created by others there was ALWAYS something I did to either contribute or decisions I made that allowed it to happen. Only when you can get to a place of acceptance for your role in contributing to the bad will you ever to be in a place of good. Sometimes it's changing how you deal with a situation or by simply taking a deep breath.

 

BUT until I see you make an effort to do this I along with many viewers will see YOU as the one who wants to hurt your SIL, her family & ultimately your husband & family just so you can gain fame & money.

Teresa and Joe certainly aren't innocent! but your husband, clearly started that fight and you consistently lay the blame for everything that's said on Teresa!.. I sure don't see you excuse yourself when your supporters pay out on Teresa and Joe Giudice! At least Joe Giudice is real on camera, faults and all! .. You and your man? are a pair of hypocrites! You run to your dopey husband and whine in his ear because you really don't want to make peace with his sister. You sit in front of the camera, always playing the poor, innocent victim and your begging performance was as fake as it gets! I really wish that the viewers would wake up to the fact that you're a conniving, fake b#%ch!  "ALL THAT GLITTERS IS NOT GOLD"

Your husband rushed Joe Giudice. All he said was apologize. You can sugar coat it anyway you wanted but your husband started the physical brawl.

Everyone was attacking Teresa for telling her husband what her brother said...yet no one mentioned how you called your husband at the fashion show to dredge up trouble for Teresa because some guy called you a stripper. Hypocrite. I honestly think you prefer your husband having issues with his family because then you come first and don;t have to share any of the attention. If you really loved him you would support anything it took for him to mend with his family.

Melissa, people are seeing just who you are. You are unforgiving, uncaring, selfish, arrogant, and deflect everything onto your sister-in-law, Teresa. The first thing you do after the breakthrough, a gift from God that Dr. V is, is get on a blog and rehash all your putrid, souless mind garbage. Get off social media. Dr.'s orders, and if you cannot help yourself, follow the golden rule. If you don't have something uplifting and encouraging to say about Teresa, don't say it at all. At first, you had us all fooled with your Madonna, can do no wrong, mother of the Christ attitude. Now, you are put on notice. We have seen INTO you. Not so pretty on the inside. Get a cleanse, meditate, see a priest, but for the sake of us viewers who mourned with Teresa and Joe Gorga, look into your heart and soul in a real, deep and scouring manner. I expect to see you apologize as much as you have demanded apologies. And that ridiculous kneeling on the ground saying I bow to the queen garbage, let me kiss your ring, you sunk much lower than you can ever know. Watch the episodes through our eyes, for a change. Learn something.

The show isn't worth all of this. Why would you agree to join? Bad decision... One day all the cameras will be gone and all you'll have is family. Writing a book and include your parents relationship? Bad call. STOP!

Melissa, Melissa, Melissa...... your true colors are starting to show and BOY are they ugly. You will take ANYTHING and I mean ANYTHING Teresa does and twist it and turn it to make it seem like she's horrible. She goes to get security because she knows a woman can't break up two grown men in a fight "OH TERESA RAN AWAY AND WOULDN'T HELP HER BROTHER (who by the way just called her scum).. SHE'S THE DEVIL". And then you're twittering and squawking in your husbands ear poisoning him against his own sister. And making snide remarks about her business endeavors. Yeah I know she's said stuff about your music but face it, your music career is a joke (literally). It's quite clear that you do NOT want your husband to have anything to do with his own sister. You will do anything to keep them from being together... I could see the look on your face when Dr. V said they should spend time together. Honestly I wouldn't be surprised at all if YOU were the one behind the scenes setting Teresa up. Seriously, Teresa and your husband are family.... so put on your big girl panties and deal with it. Eventually your husband will see what you are trying to do to his family, and he will resent you terribly. Have fun dealing with that.

Seriously Melissa? Joe Guidice is obviously not an ideal husband, but can you honestly say that it was wrong of him to demand an apology for his wife? What your husband said was completely out of line and absolutely immature and hurtful. First of all, no one had any business drinking during a counseling session! That's crazy. I used to be on your side in the whole theresa/joe fiasco, but things are starting to change. You seemed innocent and victimized in the beginning, but it's completely obvious now that you DON'T want your husband and Theresa to have a relationship. You completely overreacted after the fight. And you were just as violent as your husband...scratching and punching Joe Guidice in the face. And then proceeded to stomp around the hotel screaming about how crazy and trashy your in laws were. Are you blind? Did you not see that your trashy husband is always the one that gets physical and takes things too far. I'm not a Theresa fan, but the viewers could tell that she was really trying to help things with the retreat. She made an effort and while she has a hard time admitting to her faults, so do you. And you have a lot of them. Honestly, you're all trash. Kathy and Rosie are the only mature ones in the whole bunch. And did you not know your husband used spray on hair?? Lol

You seriously need to get over it.  Let Teresa and her brother have a relationship without your 2 cents.  You can make it or break it and you have tried everything to break it.  I am glad Teresa's persistence has won.  Now maybe you will realize that you need to get along and not get in the middle.  Joe loves you but he can love his sister too!!

Oh you are such a fake.  You were hoping and trying to get Joe and T  to fight.  You try to look so angelic, but the audience is watching when you make a statement, you  hurry up to see if the camera is still on you.  And when Dr. V asked you if you could be cool and talk with her, your voice changed so quickly. but a minute before you said "oh I cant now cause She is here" when T walked in.  And you said it so mean.  And how you grabbed Joe's hat so quickly so the wax on his head wouldnt show.  What fakes!  You rallied when you found out T met the bald guy earlier and didnt say anything.

Melissa,

 

I feel so bad for you! Teresa is so so jealous of you and your beautiful family.  She sees what you have and she is so envious. She wishes she would have married someone like her brother and I think this is why you guys have such issues.  Joe Guidice is lazy, rude, and to top it off he's a criminal. She has had to deal with him calling her horrid names over national television. She has had to deal with him being in trouble all of the time, and also she has had to deal with him not being the best parent in the world.  The episode that showcased that is when Gia was questioning whether or not the tabloids about her father's infidelity were true or not. Overall, Teresa has seen all this fault in her husband for years. She tries to hide it and pretend like they're happy when it's obvious they're not. She sees her baby brother providing for you and your children and she gets so jealous.  That is why she is evil to you and your family. It's so sad to watch and my heart goes out to you.

 

Just know that people do see all that you have done to try to reconcile. Last season all you did was try to mend this family, and Teresa just kept hating and hating. I can tell this season you're fed up with all the drama and are finally done trying to extend the olive branch. I do not blame you what so ever.  Watching the show you can tell Teresa holds you and Joey to a higher standard.  You guys aren't allowed to bad mouth her in any way, yet her and her husband can constantly bash you on camera.  You and Joey are called animals by her in her blog? Yet she can flip tables, throw water on her brother and push Andy at reunion specials? She is such a hypocrite. And it saddens me that she constantly is finding new friends to do her dirty work and make up rumors about you. How pathetic! I really am so sorry that you and your family has to endure this. I hope she stops hurting you, stops being jealous, stops spreading vicious lies, and recognizes all the hurt she has caused.  I really hope you can all find peace and be a happy family. Best wishes! Keep your head up and always try to be the bigger person! (Even though it's hard).

I read the comments and hope that Melissa, you do not listen to any of the negative comments towards you or Joe and keep doing what you have been doing since you joined the show: remain the most real person, together with Joe, on it at the moment.  What I see time and again on the various seasons is something typical in society called Ganging Up On the one who is going to steal the limelight away from the others.  When jacqueline said on WWHL after the show aired that she makes up with Teresa, and would rather be on a desert island with her than you, I thought: Et tu, Jacqueline?  It seems pretty obvious to me, that if a woman who has heard Teresa insult her the way she has insulted Jacqueline, whose husband flat out insults autistic people (where in the world she gets that Joe understands they are intelligent is beyond me because he was completely disregarding autism, coming from someone who has an autistic cousin myself..) and then sides with Teresa has her own issues.  I loved Jacqueline all throughout... but after I saw her on WWHL defending Teresa and indirectly insulting you, she lost any respect I had for her except that I think she is misguided, sadly.  I would have absolutely acted the way you did after that fight: reluctant to open up to Teresa, reluctant to think there was any solution.  Caroline reached out to Joe, not you, and that must have hurt.  Caroline, as much as I have loved her and continue to, seems also to have caught the "bug" of wanting to make sure a "newer" housewife doesn't become the "star."  Teresa caught this bug a long time ago and from all of the insults and blame gaming she plays and will probably play all season and for the rest of her life, she is a crybaby, a jealous, conniving, sad individual and I do feel very sorry for you and your family.  She will hurt you all again, even if you make up.

You have to let this all this anger go I know how it feels to be in a family thats really bad. But you just gotta move on and try to forget the bullshit and at least admit your wrongs and lay it all on the table. Your husband needs you to do that so that he can feel like it's ok to go forward with his sister. I know Teresa is so messed up and has a warped point of view and takes no responsibility for anything she has done. But maybe this way you all can figure out why shes like that and work some stuff out. Those kids are going to see this later in life and wonder why you all were acting like that.

When your husband vents about his sister, right or wrong... Don't chime in. I'm sure he doesn't say a word about your sisters. I know they are not angels.

Every season someone's true colors come out and this season it's you. I feel like you stir up the drama and add fuel to the flames. One thing became crystal clear, this family fight is not about joe and Teresa, it's about you and Teresa. The focus on repair needs to horn between the two of you and joe and Teresa will be fine. It's obvious there is a lot of love between them.. 1. You blame Teresa for setting up the stripper and unfaithful sciences with her friends. To me it's obvious that Teresa is the one being set up. Kim D knows she gets no airtime on her own but if she meets with you and throws out something scandalous, her 15 minutes continue. Stop blaming Teresa for these and see that it's Kim D. 2. Stop trashing Teresa to Joe. You are not helping the healing. I also lost respect for you when you wouldn't leave the room to let Teresa and Joe talk alone. 3. Teresa running away and you staying during the fight means nothing and you've made a big deal about it. This was an intense situation and people react in different ways. It doesn't mean she doesn't care. Fight or flight. 4. I do believe you are very protective of joe. One of the strangest proofs of this was when you ran to put his hat on when the fight split. It was such an odd priority. I know you were protecting him from the cameras but what were you protecting him from? Did his thinning hair show or was the black spray smeared? I saw him on WWHL and he looks great with the shaved head! 5. Everyone wants the other to accept blame. You ALL need to accept your share. You are equally responsible for the problems in the family. I wish you all the best. There is love between joe and Teresa and I hope they can repair it. Imagine if it was you and your sisters.

I couldn't believe that you were on your knees begging her to stop hurting you guys and she couldn't do it. You didn't even ask for any apology for all of the hurting she has done, but Teresa doesn't know how to say the words, "i'm sorry." I felt so sorry for Joe Gorga. I hope you two keep strong and don't let that "Scum" ruin or come between what YOU DO HAVE.

Hello Ms. Gorga,

 

I feel bad for you and your husband's family.  All of you have created a serious problem between you and it will take the will and effort of all of you, plus Our Father God, to resolve it and replace it with the love, respect, and affection that was/is in His plan when He created this family.

 

I know you felt hurt and blindsided by Teresa's comments from last week that made you feel like she was "threatening" you.  But did you take a moment to think about what brought that on?  Just think about how you would have felt if after all of this time of working on healing your relationship, you have to see with the world that your brother and sister-in-law was dogging out your marriage on a bus full of cameras.  For it to be happening at all has to be hurtful enough.  But to hear you doing it in front of the world must have been devastating-- ergo the lashing out.  How could she not be shocked and hurt?  Perhaps if you all had warned her that it was coming and talked it out, she could have been properly braced and just lightly stung once she saw/heard it for herself.  The reality is that all of the things you and your husband said about her and/or her husband have been pretty harsh.  They did that to you all in previous seasons so I can see the tit for tat.  They are not blameless.  BUT, they are growing because it is truly little-to-none of that in this season coming from Teresa at least.  When the "rumor" was told by your best friend, she could have went in on you.  Instead, in the side-bar she said she heard it before and already addressed it with you so she wasn't taking it in.  She was clearly surprised that your best friend was doing that. 

 

As for the fight, I understand your perspective from when you were in it.  But after watching it, even if you don't want to acknowledge it, why can't you see that your sister-in-law ran for help initially and then when she came back, she was the main one to accomplish separation.  I think you all initially tried to stop the fight, but all the rest of you turned and was attacking Mr. Giudice.  At least you and Richie were.  I don't know what Kathy was doing.  lol  Why mock your sister-in-law for what was apparent to millions of viewers?  It's on film.  It's no longer she-said-she-said.  You're not making yourself look good here.Please think about these things.  Time to be a positive rather than a negative.  I know you're tired.  I know you're frustrated.  But you need to ask for strength and grace in times of struggle.  He will bless you with them.  And as you handle all situations-- good, bad, and ugly- in a way that reflects the Almighty God we serve, you will see His grace unfold in the situations you are a part of.  You can only control yourself.  You can pray for yourself and others, but you are responsible for you.  Splitting your husband's family up because it's "easier" and you can't "deal" anymore is not a part of the solution.  It will only grow the problem.  Be a blessing, not a curse.  It's a choice.  Sometimes it's a very tough choice.  But in His will, you will all be better for it.Good luck!

My theory on the Gorga/Juicy fight. SloJoe charged Juicy out of panic and fear of what Juicy might say not hate. He knows Teresa will keep her mouth shut about him because she is loyal and won’t shame her parents. Juicy is a loose cannon and has no reason other than Teresa to keep his mouth shut. When Juicy came in SloJoe looked scared not angry. He took an ass whuppin’ to keep Juicy’s mouth closed. It wasn't mama bear mode, it self preservation. The goal was to make sure Juicy didn't let any truths slip out. That's why she helped attack Juicy. It wasn't 10 years of anger but years of fear that the House of Marco was gonna come tumbling down because Juicy has only kept quiet out of respect for his wife and the elder Gorgas...but that isn't gonna last. Juicy is at his break point and Messy and SloJoe know it.

Melissa, I think you mean well,but i think you don't want Teresa and your husband/ her brother Joey to come together.You want to be the only woman in his life and you know that he really loves his sister at the end of it all,let them be happy, and Teresa is just telling you what people are saying....Its "OK" to share our husbands with their family its family your family too...Your only making yourself look bad and the children need their family,I hope you don't take this in a bad way but blood should be thicker then water,you could always change the way you feel about a husband/wife but family loves you for life..."Just Saying"

Melissa, please, take a step back, take a breath and then "disconnect".  You will have more impact on your SIL and her husband and your husband's situation if you take the higher road and stop the negative comments across the board. Don't blog negativity, don't tweet veiled and implied tweets about expensive purchases and bankruptcies.  It's a waste of time and energy.  Take the high road and be the bigger person.  Let your SIL rant and rave and blame.  Just simply shake your head and accept the fact that people don't change.  Let people say whatever they want about you, you know the truth and that's all that matters.  Even your so called "friend" that spread rumors about you in order to try to secure a position on the show, is not worth the energy it takes to even think about her.  I realize the Producers of the show want you to keep the comments coming so that it fuels the drama, but at some point you have to consider your family, your husband and your children above the needs and desires of the Producers, the network and viewers.  It's not worth it.

Feel badly for Melissa all you viewers.  According to her, it's the fans who are fickle & quick to judge.  She seems to think that viewers & fans "flip-flop" on whether they like her or her actions.  One day they love her, the next day not so much and oh my, this is rich, depending on what episode the viewers watch.  Is it just me, or is "Miss Little Everything" beginning to sound like Jill Zarin?  Sounds to me like Melissa doesn't want to take responsibility for her own words and actions and place the blame anywhere but on her shoulders.  Truth of the matter is, I believe many viewers made their "fickle" decision with your first appearance on the Real Housewives of New Jersey Show.  I know I did.

Viewers have watched you play your husband episode after episode. You drove a wedge between you husband and his family because they likely didn't approve of you. You know what you are and what you have done in your past and then blame Teresa for it? Sadly, your husband's family would have accepted you and given you the respect the mother of their son's children is due. You blew it big time!

Wow... How easily the tables turn. I just think Melissa needs to respect Joe's and Teresa relationship as siblings. Yes, Melissa deserves respect from her in laws but you can't make people respect you. Joe's first obligation is to his wife Melissa.  As adults we leave the nest and created our own family which comes first over parents and siblings. That's how God intended a union of marriage to be and that what makes a family. I feel that if Melissa has a disagreement she should let Joe handle it as they are brother and sister and keep out. If she keeps out of confronting Teresa when not pleased with her, she keeps her hands clean. 

 

Honestly, I think it was a mistake for Melissa to have join the show. She know that things wouldn't get fix by airing it out for the nation to watch. They got what they wanted fame but is and won't  fix anything. Sad. Well....I like Joe he is very likable.

Melissa...DENIAL is a side-effect of cowardice...Our consciousness requires courage....when we are afraid to deal with our own behavior...we spin lies....we boast about ourselves and make the other person look bad....we justify....we put up a false façade...we deny...You have been in denial for a long time...spinning your stories...and changing your stories like you change clothes...But one day, according to an ancient prophecy, the lion will lie down with the lamb. Swords will be turned into ploughshares...there will be peace on earth for all...Well, almost all...Some folk, like yourself like to moan and grumble, spin stories, enjoy drama and seem to despise peace and are in denial...and there are some people who believe they will benefit from conflict and will shun peace....in order to be in control....an old drama may be coming to an end...but a new drama will soon take its place...you need to learn to have a little more willingness to accept the validity of differing viewpoint.....such as your famous sister in law Teresa view point...you can decide to get into a negative or positive emotion.....you need to get to the very heart of what is causing your fear of losing your husband to Teresa and his parents...Is it because of your childhood? If so, then seek professional help...you have taken advantage of Teresa generousity....she has kept quiet about your dirty little secrets...she has kept quiet about your marriage and about you...and she does not want to blow your cover because she loves her only brother and she is very protective of him...and you know she is protective of him and of you because of him...so you ramble on about her...while she sits quietly..Shame on you....but your day is coming..what goes around does come around...and I have seen people like yourself pay for their misdeeds...

Everyone is running around saying ADMIT THIS, ADMIT YOUR PART IN THAT, Teresa's entire problem with y'all is because you want to do everything short of cleaning your tail after you poop on national .TV. FAMILY issues should be private! As usual you and Little Joe are missing the point. IT'S CALLED CLASS AND MANNERS! You put on a smile and be polite adults in public. Throw your 2year old fits behind closed doors. Y'all are on the show but it gives you NO right to use and rip apart your husbands family to be there. That's the problem Teresa has. You've used her and the parents she loves dearly to get your 15 minutes. There's a special place for people like you and one day you'll be there. P.S. bring a fan.

I just read, that due to some very poor decisions Baby Joey made, the Sr Gorga's  were served foreclosure papers on their home and knew nothing about it. This (and things like it) is probably getting more to the root of the problem between Baby Joey and his parents. This is probably also why Juicy Joe was building  garage apartment above his garage for Tre's parents. Much more back story on this (very shady) sad ordeal...just google it!

 @knd1085 Great post! I recall their first season on, that's when you could see Caroline and Jacqueline getting frustrated with Teresa because no matter what, Teresa had something negative, hateful and hurtful to say. No matter how positive everyone else tried to be. I saw a bit of Teresa's true colors season 2 with Danielle at the country club and having people who really know you on means you can't hide as you were doing before. Caroline and Jac started seeing a different side of her that she couldn't tuck away or use lame excuses for.

 @rhoffw Melissa, it is clear you are showing up live and wearing your true colors. Do you realize America was traumatized by your behavior and the threat you posed to a sister and brother's relationship and their relationship to their aging parents? Do you realized we were crying for Teresa and Joe and their parents and that we saw you as the person who could repair or destroy forever? Like Kali, the goddess of destruction. Develop the Jesus side of yourself and we will forgive you and maybe even look up to you.

 @RC333 good for you!! This is so true. Iam not a Melissa fan, but have pretty much given up on what used to be a good show! I hate the bully mentality, and the ganging up stinks. Iagree, they should all go to church, give up the hate, petty gossip, slandering each other, and either go seperate ways or truly forgive, heal and move on as a stronger family unit.

 @censorblue The Bible instructs us that the tongue is potentially the most evil organ of the body. Gossip, innuendo, maliciousness come from the unfiltered, undisciplined, self absorbed mind, and makes its ill way to the tongue. God help us all, but we aren't on TV. So grow up in front of America. PLEASE. For a family's sake.

@kristyk , I've been seeing these stories also. Teresa and Juicy are protective of the Sr Gorgas for good reason.!! But even if there wasn't a "reason" , as a parent myself its so nice watching the love and respect Juicy & Teresa have for their parents. Teresa is good to his parents also.

 @kristyk And there it is.  I read the same thing.   Makes sense to me now, because I never understood what could cause such a rift between parents and their only son.  Now I get it.

 

The Senior Gorgas living situation was briefly on the show last season but dropped and somewhat quickly.  I remember thinking at the time that there was something "off" about it.

 

Now that this is out there, I am guessing that Joe Gorgas problems with Teresa and Joe Guidice stem from this.  Joe Gorga probably made up some story to explain things to his parents.  Guessing Joe Guidice got to the bottom of it and filled the Senior Gorgas in.

@kristyk I've also read this & it's actually not suprising either

 @TiaGia  @RC333 If everyone in this family made a sacred vow never, ever to talk behind each other's backs, all would work out. And stay off twitter, I agree with Dr. V. The bashing broke America's heart, Watching a family self destruct, a REAL family, right before our eyes, well, for me, it was more than I could bear.
