Melissa Gorga

Melissa shares her thoughts on what Penny had to say.

on Sep 16, 20130

One last thing in this episode: the talk with Penny. Joe and I thought we were going out to a nice dinner. I had no idea she’d be there. We were just as surprised as you were to see her sitting at the bar.

During our talk, I tried to act like a lady. I don’t come at anyone guns blazing. That’s not how you get anywhere in life. Penny was pretty open with us about who she’d been talking to about me, but she is hardly a reliable source. As you can see I was very skeptical about her. I asked my questions and she gave me her answers. Whether those answers were just another flat out lie, we didn’t know. There was Penny’s side and Teresa’s side. The truth was probably somewhere in the middle.

Penny’s news that night wasn’t earth-shattering for Joe and me. When I decided I was going to let go of the past issues with Teresa, I pretty much knew what I was moving on from.

Please stop attempting to sing.  You have no vocal talent and I'm sorry, but you are far too old to be a pop star.  It is painful and embarrassing to watch you try to sing...it physically hurts.

These comments are comedy!! I don't know how adults constantly get involve with someone else's life when they don't even like them or know them. The fact that people are bashing Melissa on this blog, but is reading her book at the same time is beyond me. Maybe it is therapy for some people to just come on here and bash her every week to escape from their own lives. If you don't care for these women don't even bother spending time out of your day to give them attention. A lot of these people on here is just as bad as Penny, Jan, and Kim D. Pathetic!!!

If  may say, Penny seemed to directly answer questions, when you asked.   And, there is a pattern of behavior that has emerged over the seasons that leads to a common denominator--Teresa.  Perhaps the Bigger question is not what was said, but why?   Why does this keep happening time after time?  Why does this keep happening to all of you, over and over again, with one common denominator?

 

What is the motivation?  Is it fear?  Is it anger?  Is it jealousy?  Is it a push for more camera time?  Is it the need to be the only focus on the show?  Beats me.  There is no hate involved in any of these comments, just more questions.

Melissa i got to say you are my favorite housewife out of all of them! You are so pretty and Joe is so handsome, a perfect match you also have beautiful children. I am so proud of you with your book and your singing career I love all your songs. As for Jan shes just really jealous of you! Karma will get her just sit back and watch! You keep doing what makes you happy and let the haters hate! You have a very nice life that alot of people dont have! I have a good marriage and a nice home to and im very happy.People are very jealous so they want to make drama and make you miserable because they are not happy with theirselfs. Keep being your beautiful self and enjoy life its to short! Lots of love xoxoxo

Melissa - I wil start by saying I have never liked you.  But I just read excepts from your book and now I really, really feel sorry for you.  It is just so sad that you think this treatment by your husband is a good thing.  If what you wrote is the truth, you should try to find a counselor who deals with spousal abuse.  If it is made up, I have to wonder if you are laying the grounds for divorce.  Really, in that big house you go to Burger KIng to poop?   Noone should take marriage advice from you especially young women.

Melissa, It was very hard to watch you sing live.  I could tell you were very uncomfortable when you were performing.  Perhaps you should have taken singing lessons when you were a child and your voice would have developed.  It must be hard for a coach to help a grown adult develop their voices if they can't carry those notes.  Just saying.

Melissa Gorga I do have to say your a genius!! Queen of deflection!! Brilliantly done!! You have managed to deflect the cheating rumors so well that we almost forgot that it was actually your BEST FRIEND that went on national television and accused you of being a cheater!! with specifics!   I guess you thought we would forget about that?!! Nice try though!

I think you are a beautiful lady with many great qualities, however, singing isn't one  them.   I realize it is a passion/dream of your but lets be realistic.  When producers ad techno when someone signs, just about anyone can sound halfway decent.I actually have such a hard time watching and listening to you when you perform on TV.  I feel embarrassed for you.  Your hubby is amazing how he supports you but he also needs to be brutally honest with you too.    Sorry Melissa....I still like you and wish you well.

I think Nicholas's teacher is the true singer on the show.  She has a lovely voice.

 

I think Melissa has the start of a singing voice, but the natural talent is lacking, and she does need some vocal coaching.  Melissa, just because your proud daddy filmed you singing when you were five does not make you Beyonce, let's face it.  But with some work - I do wish you the best!

i'm sorry but why aren't you confronting your own friend jan? oh yeah, you won't dare. lol

 

It's so sad to watch that Every conversation you and you husband have is about teresa! no wonder you say you and joe fought a lot for  the first 5 yrs of marriage, then you joiin the show and finally agree on one thiing: Destroy teresa and make her the villain

Just heard your song, "Never Let Me Go." I was surprised. It was good, and I liked it. A lot of auto-tune, but almost every song I hear now uses it. Who knew?

Your husband needs anger management!!!! Over and over he blows up and physically accosts someone. Is he 12????? He has no self control. Maybe he should take some lessons in self control from Joe G. HE has a handle on better social behavior than your maniac of a husband does.

NEWS FLASH: YOU CAN'T SING! YOU'RE OFF PITCH ALL THE TIME. Someone needs to tell you so you'll stop making a fool of yourself. Please, get another hobby.

Melissa needs a LOT of voice lessons.  She is off-pitch more than she is on, and it's really hard to listen to. 

Right after her radio show scene, I heard a beautiful voice, just 3 notes, but they were clear and pitch perfect.  For a second I thought it was Melissa, but then the camera jumped to Nicolous' teacher. (Jenny?)  Now, SHE has a voice!

And God bless her for the fabulous workshe does!

As much as all of you follow tweeter and gossip trains you have to watch yourselves on the show??? SOOO instead of making a seen and causing more DRAMA watch the show and YOU'LL SEE WHO'S LIEING AND SPREADING TRASH TALK instead of attacking Teresa  Its like you want to destroy any ties between your husband and his family.YOUR HIS WIFE THEN REALLY ACT LIKE IT INSTEAD OF HURTING HIM Bye causing DRAMA. Family should stick together NOT TRY AND TARE EACH OTHER APART!!! Everyone makes mistakes everyone gossips everyone lies Take responsibility for your part in all this. Cause you look like your the one Out to get your SISTER IN LAW bye acting like your such a victim and blaming Teresa for everything so you can have more tv time and your only HURTING JOE AND YOUR KIDS acting that way. your awesome when everythings about you and that's very very sad. You attack Teresa every chance you get and shes trying to be a family no matter what she dose you tare her down and gossip about her and blame her for everything GROW UP. And acting the way you do isn't gonna help your career just make people hate you.

Melissa Gorga is a shady rat who cannot sing.  When is someone in her family going to tell her to stop making an idiot of herself and just go away.  No one wants to read her trash book.  It is really ridiculous that she even has a fan.  She is nothing more than an opportunistic wanna be that has caused such pain to her husband's parents and continues to make such a fool out of her blinded, moronic husband.  The fact that the Manzo's and the Laurita's continue to give Melissa, Joe, Kathy and Richie a pass for being such desperate crumb chasers makes me have zero respect for them.

Sick of the BS....... Kim D is friends with all of them. She hates Melissa. She tries to be a friend to Teresa but she LOVES her business and any chance she gets she is going to PULL attention to Poshce., including staging a fight where Melissa can try to be an actress and hurt Teresa. Sadly Melissa is not a good actress. Some of us can see right through you. Go on the TV show, THE TEST or Steve Wilkco. Let's find out who's lying by using a lie detector test. IT MEDIA EXSPOSURE!!!

I too believe Melissa and Joe need to look at the big picture and also realize with the fame they signed up for and collect the money for comes gossip.    If you want a singing career.. fasten your seat belt... this is mild compared to all the tabloids comments on truly famous people.   I do not know how Teresa has lived through this year with all their personal stress, and family stress on top of it.  Who could blame her for just listening when people said things and not wanting to fight over it.   Maybe a large can of understanding and love could be delivered to your home......

Melissa and Joe, please take a look at the big picture here - Kim D. is the manipulator, she is playing you against Teresa and Joe, for some reason. I believe she is trying to get you guys fighting to the point that one quits or is asked to leave, giving her a shot at a permanent role, and she is using Penny and her husband to get it done. She doesn't care at all about Teresa, in fact, she is out for blood with her. If you guys would just stick together, form a barrier against these small-town gossips, you will be fine. I live in a small town and know all about those gossipy hateful witches, can spot one a mile away, Kim D and Penny both fit that bill. Don't let them get away with it!!

 Caveman style? I didn't get that out of the book.  People have different types of relationships why call someone phony just because of theirs?  She actually said that this is what works for them and made reference on Bethanny that everyone has their own type of relationship.  She's no shrink, marriage advisor or anything like that but she's got a point.  Let's face it if we like her character we will agree with her if we don't like her there is nothing good we will say about her an that goes for anybody else we follow from this new "Great Reality TV" world.  She's got guts gotta give her that.

 @mountainclimber Did she really say that???  That she actually goes to Burger King to poop????    Melissa----you should buy some of that stuff that keeps the smell of the poo in the terlet........   it really works !!!    It could open up a whole new world for you girl !!!

 @piperbeau

 not to mention the deflection of conspiring with Danielle to get on the show to begin with.  How you manage to turn this entire thing around that Teresa is trying to bring you down, it has been your desire to take her down and make the show yours. I wouldn't put it past you that you actually were the ones to turn her in to the Feds, hoping she would go to prison and then you would really have the show without competing with her.  You are actually even doing that squeal she does.  I was watching reruns today (blonde drops a bombshell) where you do that squeal in at least 2 scenes.

 

How come Teresa's financial problems are everyones business, but nothing can be said about your personal lives?  you are on a reality show, every negative thing that comes out about you doesn't have to be blamed on Teresa, what about Jan, your best friend???

 @piperbeau YES, YES, YES!!!!!!!  She's going after Penny, when it was her best friend who TOLD HER SHE CHEATED TO HER FACE!  I just don't get what Penny and Teresa have to do with WHAT JAN SAID!  Melissa think we are fools!

 @Sjomohr She HAS to know how bad she is----she had all the videos of her REAL voice taken down as fast as she could....... BUT she STILL continues to get up there and make a complete fool of herself and continues to ask everyone to buy her music and come to her shows WHERE SHE EMBARRASSES HERSELF over and over and over.  Doesn't she know that most everyone just comes to see her make an idiot of herself?  Sure there are a few people that like her and cheer her on, but most just come to laugh at her.  I don't get why she needs this attention so badly........  What the girl needs is a helluva lot of good therapy.  Intense one on one therapy.

 Newly released version has her sounded more on tune - modern technology & auto-tune has erased all the bad sounds coming out of her mouth during that appearance at the radio station.  Guess, if JW can auto-tune Melissa Gorga's horrible voice, have to wonder about his other performers.  What a scam.

 @Oahustacey

 I agree that Melissa's singing is worthy of the shower, the car or around the house, not the pop charts.  You have to give her credit for trying to do something she's always wanted to do.  It's up to the music executives to tell her she isn't the next Britanny Spears.  As for her husband, I think he has a good heart and loves her dearly.  They are both very immature and Joe seems to have some self-esteem and anger issues to work on.   I'm not a fan of either one of them, and, if what you believe of them to be true, that truth will eventually come out.

@Ksfan exactly!!! I don't understand what Jacqueline and the others are not seeing. I thought I must be missing something but it is definitely kim d who is doing the manipulating. Melissa, Joe and Jacqueline always say Teresa is always around when there is a rumor. Newsflash!!! So is kim d!! Also I believe Teresa believes kim d is her true friend so Teresa told kim d Melissa didn't visit her father in the hospital and kim d is the one that told penny about it... I could be missing something and if I am, please someone help me to see it otherwise.

"Oh boy, Teresa's dog pound is busy working a number on Melissa!!!"

 

Wow.

 

Teresa's dog pound, at least it's a new insult. 

 

Working a number......if by working a number you mean stating our opinions on a message board about a Jersey Shore reject.....ok.

 

I'm pretty sure that's what these things are set up for.

 @Twitterbee  @murphy1 I disagree. My man is not less than  any other men if he change our kids diapers, cook me a meal or take care of the house. Also he does not take me with force and respect me and my decision if I say not to sex sometimes. I have been married 18 years . I feel sad for melissa and her marriage.

 @Glimmer88  @mountainclimber Another quote from her book - 

"Every girl wants to get her hair pulled once in a while. If your wife says "no," turn her around, and rip her clothes off. She wants to be dominated."

 

You can't make this stuff up.  Shocking.

 What cruel & means things have been said that "are simply not true"?  That she can't sing, that she is a fake & phony, her husband is a jerk and needs anger management.  We are tired of their façade.  The girl cannot sing & it's a waste of time trying to convince people so they can achieve some type of fame.  In the future, maybe I and some others will only post on Melissa's "Love me, adore me" blog - you know the one that exists in her fantasy world.

 @ToniTX  @Rdy4MyCloseUp How do you know the things people are saying aren't true.  Are you one of the cast or crew?  The premise of reality television and blogs is for the audience to give their opinions and feed back to one or more of the cast.  You can't control what someone wants to write, good or bad.  You need to relax and let things shake out how they will.  The truth always comes out.
