Thank you all so much for your support! It means the world to me!
Andy, Please stop this storyline - it's become painful to watch and think of their kids !!! Melissa and Theresa will never like each other and we are truly sick of the entire NJ cast - the only person worth a mention is Rosie. !! hooray for her !!
Has anyone figured out that maybe just maybe, Teresa is confiding in her friend Kim D and Kim D is the one spreading the rumors, she is always in the middle of everything..and its easier to blame Teresa, because everyone is so easy to believe that Teresa did everything. I honestly think Kim D is being the snake by betraying Teresa, its like she wants Teresa to be at odds with her fam..Teresa needs to leave that woman alone
ileiaP6 I agree totally!! I think it may be Teresa confided a little bit and I also believe Kim D watched Teresa's family drag her through the mud on national television and it pissed her off. and I don't blame her for having Teresa's back! but in reality she may have caused more drama!! But lets all keep in mind that is was actually Melissa's former best friend Jan that spilled the beans about the whole cheating rumor!! And Melissa was the one who actually introduced Jan to the show! So that she could talk about Teresa.... Kind of ironic...
Teresa keep your head up and dont let anybody get inide your head. Focus, focus, focus only on your family and not a bunch of meatheads! TO MANY HATERS IN THIS WORLD.
I just wish Teresa was a little bit smarter. Because Melissa went to college she is able to put three coherent sentences together, so she gets the best of Teresa every time. Does not mean that Melissa is right, just easier to understand. Did Teresa even finish high school? Her speech pattern is horrible, and she does have a speech impediment, her thinking processes is that of a thirteen old. Teresa does not pick up on social clues, even having money in the past, she didn't learn anything. When you have a little money, you go to better places, can wear nice clothes, may have friends that are educated, and learn a few things. Teresa's cloths are nothing special, her friends are not smart, her children are undisciplined, and because she is lacking in education, no global learning, immature, self centered, insecure, Teresa will always be a victim of something. I did like Teresa a few seasons back, but not anymore..she lies way to much. And another thing, she is stupid, and there is no cure for stupidity.
Teresa, this is becoming such a broken record. TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR ACTIONS. Everyone know you are lying and that you were not only behind all the bad stuff, but you encouraged others. You are facing a difficult time in your life and you need support from others. Make it easier for them to support you!
Why does Teresa always have to be the one to say she is sorry when everyone one the show has talked about her and her husband!! Everyone thinks she is so bad they need to look at themselves including her clueless brother and his fake ass wife. You hang in there Teresa you are why I even watch this show I love you and your husband if you are not on the show I will not watch it anymore.
When Penny answered the questions put to her by Melissa and Joe, she supported it by showing them her cell phone which contained Teresa's private telephone numbers. She also asked the question on the ast program before the finale, "Then how did I know?" How indeed?
Seriously? Anyone that had Tre's number could have given it to that five minutes of fame Penny! I mean really? That doesn't prove anything!
Why does everybody think you are behind the different rumor about people on the show? Because you are the only common denominator.
It's funny how Theresa now thinks they should be a united front against the strangers,.. Its so very obvious that she played a part in it. She is pathetic at this point!
While all of the HW's have said/done nasty things to one another, my issue w/Tre is that she never wants to acknowledge her own faults. However, she is super quick to point out the wrongdoings (either real or perceived) of others.
I loved the scenes where Tre was at Jac's house playing w/Nicholas and helping Jac w/her speech. Tre then spoiled it, though, by saying in her aside to the camera that she/Jac had worked out their issues & Jac had "apologized for what she's done"...Um, did Tre apologize??? Why is it always the other person who is supposed to come begging her forgiveness? Why not just admit they BOTH contributed to the problems?
Tre holds herself up as Miss 'Love Love Love' who never hurts anyone & never holds a grudge. That's simply unbelievable and clearly not true. We've seen/heard her snippy comments about the others in her asides...mocking Mel's singing (she even laughs along as her daughters make fun of their aunt), putting down Kathy's endeavors ("did I roll my eyes too much") & Kathy's personality in general. The worst comment came after Mel said she hoped her sons grew up to be as close as the Manzo brothers. Tre shot back that they'd be close until they married b/c the wives would ruin everything--ouch! A clear dig at Mel.
Yes, I know that the others make fun of Tre (her style of speaking, her pronunciations, etc) but the others don't try to present themselves as pillars of perfection the way Tre does and the others have apologized. Mel said she was sorry for giving info. to Danielle, Jac said she was sorry for their estrangement, Kathy/Caroline have expressed remorse for things said....what about Tre?
After the Posche show/Angelo fiasco, Tre blamed Jac for ruining her family (as if Joey wouldn't have suspected Tre anyway???) and also blamed the Gorgas for believing the worst about her. In the most recent episode, she's saying that Joe/Mel will ruin the family if they believe Penny's claims about Tre's involvement in the rumors/tweeting. Tre hasn't proven herself trustworthy (remember how she made up w/Jac in Napa & then Jac overheard Tre ranting that she hated Jac & her "effing" face). Tre puts herself in situations w/these hangers-on that make her look guilty....and she did herself no favors by looming over Mel/Penny/Jan at the Milania party, monitoring every word and loudly interjecting, "We're not friends, RIGHT? I didn't know Angelo, RIGHT?" It was all about covering her behind.....if she wasn't guilty, she certainly made herself look to be so!!
Next week's show seems to have Tre admitting to Joey that she was in a bad place about Mel & that she enjoyed hearing others speak ill of her.....hopefully the siblings will clear the air & move on. Another season of this "who started the rumors" is too much to bear! As Jac said, Tre probably trash-talked Mel in anger & the hangers-on took it too far. And as Mel stated, the truth is probably somewhere b/w Tre & Penny's versions of events.
Teresa, it's so obvious that Kim D. is jealous, and out to frame YOU! If she can get you or Melissa off the show, she thinks she can get a perm. role, and bring her buddy Penny with her. Do NOT let them get away with it. Call her out - don't shop there, don't talk to her, stay away and spend your time with your family, Melissa and her family, and Jacqueline and family. Leave those gossipy, jealous, mean ugly hags in your dust. Kim D. would most certainly give Penny your private numbers, I have no doubt about that. She is the instigator - cut her out of your life and out of ours please!!
I think there is something suspect about Penny - she claims no one pulls her strings or tells her what to do and yet she seems to be acting as someones puppet and then claims she was mandated and forced to go to events, doesn't add up and I think I would take what comes out of her mouth with a pinch of salt. And now I think she is trying to take down the show and everyone in it because she can't get a full part and let's face it she is nearly getting as much blog space as Teresa lately. She has accused the producers of chopping and editing but she said on camera in one sentence "she asked me if I knew who B****** was and she asked me to confront her brother" so she is clearly admitting someone put her up to it and if that isn't acting as a puppet then I don't know what is. I agree that Teresa may well have started this some time ago when she was in an ugly place with Melissa and wished she hadn't and possibly didn't think it would blow up quite like it did. Kim D and Penny remind me of two hyenas waiting to feed off the scraps of the big cats kill.
NettiSpaghetti I think there is something suspect about Penny, her husband AND Kim D.!! Teresa would have avoided alot of issues w/ her family if these people had minded their own business.
krayne I agree - I saw some tweets from Johnny last season when they first appeared and he seemed pretty consumed with getting at Melissa and Joey. For someone who is calling the show BS himself and his wife spend an awful lot of time sticking their noses in to it.
NettiSpaghetti Melissa and Kathy remind me of two hyenas trying to feed of of Teresa's scraps...
Theresa, you try to come off as an innocent person with that deer in the headlight look...but that is the look that shows guilt. It's been your look since season 1. The first round of conversation you had with Penny -- the phrase "the best defense is an offense" - comes to mind. You were very vocal about getting her to say you weren't behind any of the gossip -- practically forcing her and you would have stuffed the words in her mouth if you could have. I truly believe you have jealousy issues with Melissa (and others to a degree). She's got what you want and it's with your brother. Even when you give a compliment it's back-handed. You fingerpoint so much about others being jealous of your so-called success but at the end of the day, when you make a point to prove to the masses that you do support everyone in their aspirations, there is always a snide undertone to it. It is you that does not want to see anyone else succeed. You can never just give a compliment and leave it at that. It's time to come clean, admit your actions and I'm sure they will forgive you like always. Believe me, with what you have going on now, you need your brother in your corner more than ever!
Teresa I have been a fan of yours since season one and I will continue to be a fan of yours until the end. Keep your head up Teresa let the haters hates I truly think you are misunderstood and I think people are just cruel and I wish Melissa and your brother would just go away I think they came on this show to bash you and your family to turn you against everybody it is so sad how Bravo has let your family come on the show. I know you are going through things right now but this to shall pass. Good Luck Teresa and God Bless You and your Family.
Theresa, I really liked you the first two seasons..but since then it appears the only storyline you have is bashing your family and promoting your 'products'...over it. I would like to see a new housewives line up. I think you and Melissa have become too toxic.
Melissa is another self centered woman. I don't like her, and wish she would leave the show. Melissa thinks she is pretty, not so much. And the clothes she wears maybe expensive, but are really ugly. Melissa has been on other (talk) shows and this has given her a false sense of being something special. Not.. I don't like her or her husband.
Well Teresa,you got caught,once again.I wish,just this once,you would admit it..Melissa and Joey have forgiven you before,they'll forgive you again if you just own up to what you've done.Even though I'm NOT a fan of yours,I truly believe you just got caught up in wanting to get back at Melissa (who'snot been innocent in all of this,either)and things got out of hand.I DO believe that you and Mel & Joey were in a better place and you want to stay that way.JUST OWN YOUR PART, WANT TO BE ABLE TO LIKE YOU AGAIN.
judy@london Actually, in the scene that is showed, Penny isn't pointing fingers at Teresa. She is pointing at Kim D. Bravo chopped it up. Please google Penny Drossos blog and educate yourself. Thank you.
jennifer.gilson judy@london london I can only find a redacted blog - do you have the address for the whole blog? Thanks.
krayne jennifer.gilson judy@london london
Yes krayne - with you. Now that additional shows have been played....it certainly looks like the education shown (without Bravo chopping it up) clearly shows Penny pointing the finger directly at Teresa. What did I miss?
judy@london I agree. I think she mentioned something to Penny, Kim D. out of anger when she was fighting with Melissa. Penny, Kim D., etc. ran with it and blew it all up out of proportion. If she would just admit to Melissa/Joe that she said some things out of anger way back when, it would make things so much better.
Teresa you have no filter and your tongue can be sharp. You grew emotionally and apologize now when needed. I love you to death but in the manipulation department Mellissa has you beat. The cheating rumors will destroy her book success and marriage if its true. She will do anything to silence this. Stay calm and let the cards fall. As Mellissa gets more fame and money she will be kinder to you. Karma will make things right
murphy1 sweetradish he is holding on to his marriage pretty much the same as Teresa holds on to hers. I think they are both very similar and probably very loyal people to their partners - which is no bad thing.
This last episode was poorly edited. It was only half a show IMO. I want to see the whole thing. I will not rag on you today, because I really want to see how the confrontation plays out. My gut feeling is that we are seeing a gang of conspirators fall apart and begin to point the finger at each other (you, Penny and her cowardly husband, and the other nothing hag that was supposed to be Melissa's friend). But, like I said, I will wait till I see the rest of it.
@murphy1 @rosyposy ....because no one lies or doctor's video on the Internet? At the end of the day Teresa loses, not viewers or rosyposy's "foolish cohorts"' , bc she needs her family more than ever now. She just needs to come clean even if she had minimal involvement that grew out of control ,and dump Kim D. That wench is always smirking in the background loving it. Real shady Bravo if that's true!
I don't believe that Joey & Melissa are "angels of god",they are at fault,too.My thing is,Teesa just never seems to LEARN from her mistakes,at all.Also,she continues to hang out with the WORST people,honestly...I don't ever condone physical violence,but I wish someone would just slap Kim D., she's always lurking and smirking.
I have not watched this season - not one episode when I saw we were going on this merry-go-round again. But if they genuinely want to get to it both sides need to be honest for a change and then stop going back there. But Theresa will never own her part and Melissa will never admit to hers they are both to busy posing for the camera. Maybe when their 15 minutes are up.
Hi Teresa, I hope you take the time to read the supportive and encouraging messages posted here, b/c as hard as Bravo and Melissa and all the Hateful people try, they cannot break your strength. Keep your head up, and be patient. You will eventually see the masks fall off these clowns. SMH! Its crazy how Chris tells Jac, this guy has been talking ish about us for a year, just said something about our son's autism, and instantly, Jac's first thought is, Teresa must be behind this. Like, wow! Teresa you must be the biggest and most cleverest puppetmaster out there to plot all these multiple schemes and get people to do as you tell them just to bring down Melissa. Just madness!
Looking forward to your food line!
Teresa....you have been set up again....by the master player....Melissa....give it up....Melissa is a street thug that can out play anyone....even you...I see why you hate her...there is really nothing to love when she is so malicious...but remember this....Melissa comes from a broken home and has hide from public view her shattered heart....that consist of so much darkness...not even a counselor could begin to help her heal...love her from a distance and do not confide in her....she is broken and only Jesus can heal her brokenness...but Jesus can only heal her dark heart if Melissa would let him in.....but Melissa has refused to let Jesus in....because of your beautiful heart.....she out played you....
I may be way off but the puppetmaster I believe is the Manzo's Caroline and misery Loran .. They are desperate for a show of their own and thought Theresa was getting too close.Good luck "T" my prayers are with you.
LQQKIN215 Debbieinmissouricitytx Well, newsflash...The Manzo's are getting their own spin-off on Bravo. Teresa is not as innocent as everyone thinks she is. I'm so tired of her always being around these people and you can't tell me that she did no wrong. Sorry, this is my opinion and we are all entitled to one. I really don't believe a word that comes out of her mouth!! Just saying....
Wow,you're really reaching now...Melissa's a "street thug"?Just admit it,Teresa got caught,once again,in her scheme of lies and deception.In the words of Ms.Nene Leakes: "You can never win when you're dirty,honey".
..”Wow” is right!!…reduced to quoting Nene??...let’s just ALL back away from our keyboards and TV’s slowly…LOL!!
are you some kind of expert in what makes someone a street thug? The way you are describing Melissa makes it sound like Teresa is dealing with the devil and the devil is winning. I know you are entitled to your opinion but isn't that taking it a bit to the extreme to label someone a street thug. And since you invoked Jesus's name into your post, you must be a believer in him. If so this post is not very Jesus-like at all.
Its laughable that that the phrases "destroy you", "destroy me", "destroy her" keep getting thrown around. These aren't top political leaders or NASA scientists we're talking about. I think "destroy" in these cases just means I'm going to steal your friends and make you the topic of gossip.
I'm liking Teresa a little more these days - I originally thought she had been a part of some stuff, but now its starting to look pretty obvious what happened here - Teresa probably confided in Kim D. and Penny when she and Melissa were fighting, then those two (Kim D. and Penny, including Penny's husband) ran with it - publically. I don't think Teresa intended things to get as far as they did, but as despicable (and loudmouth) as I think Kim D. and Penny are, Teresa did start this. I think if she just tells Melissa&Joe that in moments of anger she said things she shouldn't have, that it might help. I've said it before - she needs to dump Kim D. and Penny.
krayne Who can blame T for anything she says about Melissa???? Do you know all about what Melissa tried to do to Teresa with Danielle wayyyyy before she was even on the show??? IF you don't I will be glad to tell you ! : )
Glimmer88 That's an excellent point - the difference is Melissa admitted she communicated with Danielle out of anger and apologized for it. Here, it looks like Teresa did the same thing - she said a few things out of anger - and those Nosy Nellies ran with it.
Teresa you are the BEST!!! There is a reason you were voted #1 housewife! :) we love love love you
