Melissa Gorga

Melissa shares how difficult it was to write about her father.

on Jun 24, 20130

I’m so proud of Albie and Chris for opening their new restaurant Little Town, NJ! It’s sweet to see how Caroline and Albert’s boys have taken their parents’ restaurant talent and made it their own. I thought it was cute that Albert had to give his opinion on the menu. He’s a dad. He’s got to stay involved and try to help. And not for nothing, the Brownstone has been in business for over 20 years so he must be doing something right. I’ve been to Little Town and it has amazing food and an unbeatable view. If you’re ever in Hoboken, you’ve got to check it out

Thank God for Jacqueline with her angry Botox face. She made me laugh, which was much appreciated in a pretty heavy episode. Rosie killed me, too, when she said, “I’m not Amish.” She likes her scotch and smokes. You’ve got to love a woman who knows what she wants in life. Moonshine on, Rosie!

Just curious.... HOW are you suppose to be an authority on how to have the perfect marriage when you aren't able to have a relationship with your spouses ONLY SIBLING? Shouldn't part of being a "perfect wife" entail keeping the ENTIRE family united? Or at the very least working toward that end?

 

Watching all TRH franchise I've come to the conclusion there is a "storyline" each season & from what I've observed there is generally one specific person selected to receive the majority of the wrath &/or blindsides from the other wives. Am I bad for being anxious for YOUR TURN TO COME?

 

Regardless of what you say it's obvious you were jealous of your SIL's success & are reveling in making a mockery out of her. You came on the show to MAKE MONEY via your singing  & now you've added author to the list. Kathy is focused on the culinary side to gain her income. AND BOTH of you were more than willing to tear apart an already fragile family. Even though I think these shows are part reality part entertainment they ultimately are based on advertising revenue so I get it BUT I'll still enjoy seeing how you & Kathy cope with YOUR "storyline changing" which should be coming soon.

 

I have to say if I was your SIL I would have hired private detectives to turn up as much dirt as I could get on you, Jacqueline, Kathy & Caroline for the ill will you've sent Teresa's way. Is she perfect NO, not by a long shot BUT the fact you & Kathy were so willing to gang up on her just to turn a buck shows exactly WHO YOU REALLY ARE. If I were you, I'd be hoping my siblings, extended family & friends had no bones to pick with me OR didn't decide all of a sudden THEY wanted to get rich too b/c then you'll have to deal with turn around being fair play!!

 

I'll leave you with some my one of my favorite quotes ... DO WITH IT WHAT YOU WILL....

 

"In prosperity our friends know us. In ADVERSITY, we know our friends!"

Melissa, honestly the act is done.  Everywhere you turn people are seeing you for what you are.  You can't let your husband speak to his sister alone??  You even had an issue when Caroline wanted to speak to your husband alone.  Fact is you control that guy and you don't want anything coming in between that control.  No I don't think you're a cheater or any of the other things you're accused of but you ARE a control freak and you ARE one of the major reasons that family isn't together--whether you like it or not. Teresa may have done some shady things but so have you and your husband.  The fact is married people always have issues with other people where their spouses may not have those same issues.  You don't have to get along with Teresa BUT you do have to let her be your husband's sister and you do NOT do that.  The fact that Joe hasn't told you to butt out is further proof that you have too much control over him emotionally.  It's sad that this situation exists and you are all only blaming 1 person and no one is looking at themselves...or you because you are just as much to blame as anyone else.

Melissa and her little termite Joe are fake as hell and.  Joe Gorga's little kitty cat attack on Theresa's joe was ridiculous.  Melissa.  You are a straight up fake.  Why do you blame theresa because your weak-ass little girl husband attacked somebody?    Why don't the two of you stop trying to be Theresa and get new wheels for you house?  Get off of her show.  Every episode EVERYONE talks about theresa every conversation cuz she is the show!

YOU are the reason for trouble between Joe and Teresa, but you better remember that you have kids and Karma will come around to get you. I can't believe that so many people on this blog can't see through your ugliness. The show was a great show until you came on...now it's filled with hatred because of you. Who needs it ?  Not me.  They need to get rid of you.

I would be in your shoes. It was my mother who cheated on my father. BUT my father end up bring a drug dealer. Life with both my parents was pretty bad. Even after my mother married her 3 husband. That Step so called father cheated the first year he was with my mom. I was 8 yrs old and see him having sex with the lady Next door to our house. sick I SAY.When your book comes out. I can't wait to read it. Stay true to yourself and family.Blessings for you and your beautiful family.Love you and your family the most. your always true LADY. HUGS to ROSIE she is so funny. ROCK ON ROSIE

With all do respect, a man who goes to get milk and doesnt come home for a couple days isn't really a great father. Did he think about leaving his children? About whether they need stability or structure? What kind of example he was providing for them? How he would feel if another man did that to his daughters? Seems unlikely. So while I respect your love for your father, perhaps it is time you take him down from the pedestal you placed him on, and see him for the man he truly was, which was neither a perfect husband nor father.

I feel bad for Melissa's mother....your daughter insinuated that her father strayed because you didn't keep him happy at home...that is total bullshit...she isn't old enough to know better..and it is sad that she has elected to tell people how to have a happy marriage.  All the while dissing her mother and saying that she could have kept him home if she would have sex with him more.  The women who have had men like this know....you can have sex daily...and these guys just like strange...it doesn't matter how many times you have sex..they still want variety, they get their self esteem from flirting and being with other women...period..there is nothing a woman can do with this type of man

You can  choose your friends, you can't choose your family. Your family is the type that should get together for weddings & funerals and leave it at that.

How you and Joe are not knocking your heads against the wall wondering who in the Guidice' family has custody of the only two functioning brain cells I'll never know. I would love to live in their world where reality is what they decide at the moment they need to prove a point

I loved when Joey dished it right back to Teresa.  As you said, if Teresa's can't take it she better not be dishing it out!  Loved it!

 Mellissa- You should really write a cooking book and a home decorating book, you house is so beautiful. There is plenty of room for another Italian cookbook, I'd buy it, I love Italian and I don't even know how to make meatballs or sauce of lasagna  or Italian dressing or salads .

Getting hungry just thinking about Italian food..

Melissa you can't fight fire with fire, two wrongs don't make a right & I think you may enjoy this fight with Theresa a bit. It's like a cat & mouse game which never seems to end. None of you are perfect, you all have your traits & issues which keep on adding fuel to the fire. Not cool at all cause there are many ppl hurting over this, not just you & joe or Theresa & joe but the whole family & that is so sad to watch. You talk in front of your kids about their aunt but you act like you are trying to shield them for it. They know exactly what's going on & they hear everything you are saying about Theresa. Theresa has been doing the same, so I'm not just saying that you only do it, but in either case it's not right. You kept saying you don't want to drag joe into your problems with his sister but every time something happens you run & tell him. That's getting him involved & upset to the point where he is caught in the middle of the two of you. Can the problems between you & Theresa not be put aside for the sake of the whole family? It's mainly between you & Theresa & the whole family has to suffer over two ppl who can't get it together. That is so wrong on so many levels & god forbid something bad happens to any parent, you guys will carry guilt & blame around with you for the rest of your lives. Do you want that? Don't think you do! As a woman of god you should practice unconditional love & forgiveness no matter how long it takes to forget. We only pick & choose our spouses but we can't pick & choose the family each one brings along. You have to learn to make it work for all involved, not just for you or Theresa. That would be selfish & cheating others out of the whole family experience they deserve. Your family wasn't too happy about you writing about your father even tho they gave their ok. You should respect & honor their true wishes & just leave out the dirty laundry about your father who isn't around to defend himself anymore. If you write about yourself the do just that, but I know dirty dish makes the big bucks. I just don't think it's right to throw your family under the bus in order to sell a book. Just stick with the rhw & your singing career instead. Wish you & the family all the best & will keep you all in my thoughts & prayers,

I must say I am confused. I was under the impression you were all in a much better place but you  are here using your blog to paint a picture of yourself again as a victim. I am sorry but your not very convincing since we are all watching the same show. I think you may be a little delusional here in thinking you are innocent. You were seen gossiping always about Teresa and you are still doing it here in your blog. And why are you suggesting Teresa's boobies are always exposed? Right your a innocent victim ...not buying it over here.

I don't know if this has ever crossed your mind, but I feel the real bone of contention between the 2 families is the fact that you have 2 sons. One of them named Joe. Isn't it true in Italian culture boys are a really big deal, and you have 2. This is what drives Joe Gudice's anger and jealousy and his wife as well. I;d  give it some thought.

Joe and Melissa are about as real as a Chanel bag from Canal street. They are broker then Teresa and Joe which is hilarious... What most people don't realize is the house they live in is a facade to show their imaginary wealth. They were only able to live there because of their interest free loan. Now that 0%apr has expired and they CAN'T afford to live there hahahahahah. Instead of owning that they make it about now wanted to live near Teresa, who btw they don't see!? What phonies

Wash your hands of Joe & Theresa. Just forget about trying to have a relationship with them and focus on your husband and kids. All of this drama is not healthy for both sides. Some people just don't mix.

Piece of advice from a woman married for near thirty years. A wife who cares about her husband would never alienate him from his family. Like them or don't, you find a way to have peace with them. If you think a marriage is based on sex, and being sexy, your marriage is time stamped already. If chemistry isn't there, it goes nowhere, but that is not what a marriage is based on. To be frank I don't see that chemistry between the two of you either, kinda funny.

I usually just read these things, but now I wanna add my two cents in. I haven't liked Melissa since day one, I thought she was fake as a 3 dollar bill, but boy oh boy, she's gotten worse. Besides the fact that I can't stand hearing her voice or looking at her banana-face (and just to beat you to the punch, I know I ain't no beauty queen myself), it makes me feel worse and worse for poor Teresa after the way this witch talks about her. Yes, maybe Teresa is at fault, but WHY did Joe and Melissa need to come on the show and put it all out there????? WHYYYYY? The first two seasons were so entertaining, gallivanting, shopping, gossiping... now it's nothing but depressing drama and all of it is coming from J and M.

I agree with whoever posted on here saying that Teresa being famous was eating at Melissa so bad that she probably ate Joe alive till he had to show his Tarzan with a few ppl to get her a spot on the show. #TeamTeresa

I can't figure out why you would join the show if Teresa was on it? Why hang out with her

friends and go to the places she frequents? You need to get your own life!

Still the same Melissa as last season. I was hoping you would grow up a little. I love the fact u r writing a book. It just proves how much of a copycat u r . By the way " thank you Jesus " that u r not subjecting us to anymore of your singing.

no offense but Joey is a dumb A$$... Melissa worked at Lookers & she is no saint. He brags so much about how hard Melissa worked & had so many jobs thru college. Well no SH*T we all work our butts off but that dosent mean im going to work at a gentlemen's club when theres many other decent jobs out there (and i mean no offense to anybody) I am a full time student trying to get my bachelors degree and i work 2 jobs & trust me its not at a gentle mens club . My point here is that Joey is wrong for talking about his own blood & letting everybody & there moma talk bad about her.... You can replace a spouse, but u can never replace a Sister.  Melissa your a wolf dressed up as a sheep ! YOu already got your 15 mnts of fame. Get over yourself and stop trying to act like your J-LO! You may fool other people but you sure dont fool me..God bless

What I find interesting is that in this comment section, the comments supporting Melissa have single digit "Like'.  The comments supporting Teresa have double digit "Likes",  Yet people comment that no one likes Teresa.  Numbers don't lie unless it is one of Andy's  polls.

Poor little Melissa. Always the little victim. 

 

No comments on Rosie's behavior?  If Theresa had acted that way, you'd be all over it.

 

The bottom line is you need Theresa more than she needs you.  You need her to stay relevant  on this show.  With 4 cookbooks, hair care line, food line, speaking engagements, I'd say Theresa is doing just fine. 

 

Ouch, right. 

 

Let's see how well your book does, shall we?

What does anyone care if and when you visited your father-in-law? Everything TG does is outside show.  I wouldn't give her the satisfaction of even responding to her remarks.  The woman is trying to stay relevant by using her extended family.  Her reasons for not speaking to you & Kathy are as childish as they come, I don't know why you girls feed into her nonsense.  Just think about what her "story line" would be if she were not feuding with you & Kathy's family.  She pretty limited - very limited. Hopefully, next season you & Kathy will develop a game plan to ignore her and her antics.

Melissa,

Hang in there!  Joe chose you as his wife and the mother of his children.  You and he love each other and have a wonderful family.  You love your husband and family enough to fight for peace with Teresa yet she uses every opportunity to ruin it.  Keep your family close to you; especially the little ones; they don't understand the viciousness.

Being a working (part time) housewife, I have to wonder if the reason these women get into so much controversy is because they simply have too much time on their hands. With the exception of those that helped out the Sandy victims, what is there to do, but sit around and cut the other wives to shreds?

While I believe in the right to make money however you can I do not believe it is anyone's right to walk all over someone to "elevate" themselves.  You've shown me over the last couple years you are garbage and so is your husband. 

 

So while I can say good job on getting a book, I can adamantly say I will NOT ever be purchasing it or reading it.  You walked over too many people to get it.

You do not want to reveal to much in the book, yet you blab it to the whole world on television, more contradictions from you every show.  Without Teresa you, Kathy, Wacko Jacko and Caroline would have nothing to talk about.

Your memories give much insight not only to how you are with men but also with women. It explains why you are such a manipulator. However, it's time to grow up! You're not a little girl living in mommy's house any more! Take responsibility for your own actions and stop the game playing! You come across like you amoral.

 @ladyfromthebay She most certainly does NOT come off as amoral.  She loves her husband and family and is caught in the middle of a very bizarre brother/sister relationship dynamic.  Quit being a hater and go over to Theresa's blog so you can kiss her butt, like most of her whacked out fans do.

 @nethead475 Here is the most annoying thing. They film about 80+ hours for each episode. Now I'm fairly certain that Teresa, Joe and Kim aren't talking about Melissa and Joe (because in every scene that is what they are doing) every minute that they are filming just like I don't think that Melissa et al. are constantly talking about Teresa. They do film other things. They just get edited out and we watch this stupid family drivel...

@nethead475 Because without Theresa no one would be interested in Melissa. The attention Melissa gets through this show is worth tearing her husband's family apart, at least to her.

 @murphy1  @chichilove It's actually not that stupid.  I had three boys and never felt any sense of pride that I had boys instead of girls.  But I'll never forget what my father said to me one day.  He's old-world and it was very offensive to me, being female.  He said, "Look at your husband with those boys.  He must be so proud having three sons.  Your sister-in-laws must hate you.  They have all those girls."  So, as "stupid" as that mind set is to you and I, it's not so stupid for small minded people, like Joe Gudice.

 @michelle.nicholas.77 Now, that's an immature comment! I'm not a "hater!" I don't hate anyone, but I do NOT like Melissa and yes she is amoral. She started this entire drama because she wanted attention.

 Joe Go is consumed with his BIL-he said at the gym that if he could go back he won't allow him to marry Tre' so apparently he doesn't like him since before any children were involved.  I'm sure he would like a son but to think that he's jealous of that is stupid!  Joe Go needs to grow some coglionis lol

  @michelle.nicholas.77 

I think Melissa's true colors are coming out.  She threw her mother under the bus and blames her for the father's cheating ways!  or maybe this is a way to create drama so the sisters can get on?  drama sells.
