First I have to tell you, from the bottom of my heart, how much I appreciate you all. I see your Tweets and messages and emails defending me and my family. (Unlike Melissa and Kathy I guess, I do read Twitter!) I love how smart and sweet and loyal and fair you all are. I love that my fans like @Team_Giudice say that they love Melissa because she's the mother of my niece and nephews even if they don't agree with her all the time. I feel the same way! Thank you all for seeing the bigger picture, for seeing through the hypocrisy, for calling out what you know is the truth, and for being kind and classy. I know you are because I have met you all over the country and my fans are always the same: AMAZING.
I have no idea why some of my own family members said the things they did on this episode. It's beyond hurtful. Kids are supposed to be off limits, but they talk about mine. Marriages are supposed to be off limits, but they talk about mine. As much as Melissa likes to talk to everyone about me trying to break up her marriage, I have never, ever done that and I never would. I've always said the opposite and I'll say it again: I hope they stay married for a hundred years because they're my family and parents of my niece and nephews.
Melissa knows I've never tried to, so instead she complains I sit and listen to people talking bad about her so instead she complains I sit and listen to people talking badly about her when she knew very well I had nothing to do with it. She claims she hears rumors about me doing things to hurt her, but when you go and talk to anyone in our town -- my friends, Kim D., Melissa's "old friends," even Melissa's ex-boss and ex-boyfriend -- they will tell you it's not true. I have nothing to do with digging up dirt on her. For one, I could care less about her past. For two, I am busy raising 4 daughters, writing 4 cookbooks, and running my Fabellini, Milania hair products, Skinny Italian Food, and Fabulicious dessert line! Busy!
Small correction to your story - you did in fact have your brother ' all to yourself' when you ran into him at the Gym. And what did you do ? What you always do . . . criticize his wife ! You don't see your brother for a year and the first thing out of your mouth is something stupid that his wife tweeted. You still don't get it, not sure you ever will. Your brother's priority is his wife and his family - not you. Your husband gets into a physical fight with Joe Gorga because of what he said to you - so how is this any different. And let's get real here, if you really wanted this to be about just YOU and your brother, why on earth did you invite everyone else. This situation will not be solved with everyone else sticking their noses in all the time. You need to stop talking about your brother's wife - simple as that ! And one more point - Kathy can talk about your parents if she wants ..they are related to her and she is entitled to her opinion. You say your parents have nothing to do with this, but in fact you have said 100';s times that you want to make amends with your brother - for your parents ! But I think the fact that your father does not talk to his own sister for years tells us all a lot in itself. Guess that apple didn't fall far from that tree !
Teresa I think you really put your all into that retreat and you are right it was obvious some people had no intentions on fixing any problems so why even go? I think you were way bigger person to apologize and not throw things back at Melissa and play the lil game she does because it would never end. I don't know but doesn't seem like things are all happy and good for all you but just keep being the bigger person, don't fall into the games and peoples true colors will come to light.
And your jealousy of Melissa is like a neon sign that only you cannot see. Seriously sad.
The RHONJ, with the exception of Caroline and Kathy, are ALL Jersey trash, but Teresa takes the crazy crown. It's been like watching a train wreck for the past couple of years, but it's reached a level of trashiness that I can no longer stomach. You need therapy, girl.
Agree w/your comment. The "crazy crown" brought much laughter...Appreciate that you visited that upon me. Some laughter..... every day, in any way, is a good thing!
I tried watching the show last year, but eventually stopped because everyone was so cruel and heartless toward you.
I started watching the show this year again, and glad to see you overcome what Melissa is trying to do to you. Good to see it :)
Dear dear Teresa, I hope you all are doing much better now...months have passed since the fight actually occurred between your brother and husband. You are so much fun and I really enjoy watching you. Sadly, I don't believe you haven't wanted your brother and Melissa to break up, and I believe everything Jacqueline says about you because she is clearly not the kind of person that would lie about such things. I do agree that she's acting a little crazy now, but I attribute that to the stress she's been under with her family, but also with the terrible way the relationship between the two of went down. I'm amazed that you have so much support on here, but look at me...I'm a fan of yours too, in spite of the role I believe you played in everything. But everyone shares some responsibility in the situation - EVERYONE. When it gets right down to it, we're all just people doing the best we can. I love watching you with your kids and thought it was very special the way Joe (your husband) spent some 1 on 1 time with you in the tub to try to make things better after such a horrible day. Take care, wishing you and your family much love and success.
Omg, I wish you could have seen the look on Melissa's face w.hen Dr. V asked to speak to you and Joe privately, sheer terror, Why is that???? Hummmmmmm.
OMG! That was so funny, Melissa cant stand even his family loving her husband she, has some kinda problem with wanting to be the only person in Joeys life...like in a little Melissa bubble...
Rosa@Maria r u guys watchin the same show. uuhhh i remember watching the very first shows and melissa was fine with teresa but teresa always had negative to say to other people about melissa she even said all this to caroline, kathy, and jaquline. why is it everyone has a problem with teresa. sorry but everyone needs to go back and watch from the beginning and you guys will see teresa has been the one that is trying cause all the drama with especially where melissa is concerened.
Teresa, has put her brother and sister in-law thru hell and then some, her trashy Husband doesn't help matters. She constantly says one thing and does another. She lies, like in the last episode where she claims she helped to get her husband off her brother when all she did is run away. Teresa gets the sister in-law from hell award!
ladybug2005 Ive said it before and I will say it again...I have a clear understanding of what Melissa suggestions are and I am well aware of how to look good and put out with out buying her book.
I also know I like my man to expect me to use my brain as much as my body, or more. I like him to accept me for who I am as I do him and build something more than just physical attraction. Been there, done that (a few times) and believe me my exs will tell you we had plenty of physical chemistry and were quite pleased with how I looked cleaning house, cooking them dinner and on their arm..
Now a book from someone who doesn't blame women when their spouse cheats, A DR, or someone married much longer than 10years I may consider taking marriage advice from. Better yet someone that treats their in laws with respect and not try to keep their husband at a distance. See most of us wives have the common sense to know that part of our husbands happiness is when we get along with their family. If you don't like your in laws you take the high road because he loves them it will make him (and even yourself) happy. Melissa can't even do that, so why the hell would I read anything else than what I can tolerate of her blog?
Everyone involved is responsible for the condition the family is in. Everyone needs to own their part or it can't be fixed.
i just bought the last 4 seasons and have watched every episode at least twice. if anyone doubts your sincerity, i suggest they watch them again. you always remain consistent throughout,NEVER any discrepancies in your storyline as in melissas. I can't stand the third and fourth reunion, as all they do is beat you up. but you still come out the believable one!
If you really wanted to mend things with your brother, you would not permit your husband to constantly call him and his wife names. I think you enjoy hearing gossip about Melissa and your husband calling both Melissa and your brother names. I also think Joe Gorga should stop Melissa whenever she starts bad-mouthing you, because she has, but not as much as your husband.
ceeacee I understand your point of view but keep in mind her husband is also tired of it and defensive of his wife. Understandably so. I know I am and I only seen fractions of it.
Why do you keep denying wanting to come between your brother and his wife. I think Dr. V hit the nail on the head when she said you don't think anyone is good enough for him so you just hate whoever he is with. I think you had some sort of weird relationship in the past with him that makes you jealous of his wife.
scoobydooby I don't understand how anyone thinks Teresa is jealous of Melissa. Why on earth would she be? There is much more to a person then a pretty face (if you find Melissa's to be pretty).
I do believe that Teresa thinks nobody is good enough for her brother, a lot of older siblings are that way including myself. After watching this play out and switching "teams" so to speak I don't think Melissa is a well rounded individual.
Honestly, I don't think she is jealous of Melissa's beauty (always in the eye of the beholder); she IS jealous of the fact that Joe has switched his attention from his sister to his wife, which is what he should do as a husband. Teresa should switch her thinking and be more of a "big sister" to Melissa - that would solve all their problems. She can still be the matriarch so to speak but needs to find a way to warm up to Melissa and stop trying to turn everyone against her. I think Melissa would become completely disarmed if she felt some love and loyalty from Teresa.
boston.mom erica8123 scoobydooby
why when dr v said Teresa and joe spend time alone did Teresa say she didn't want that and shed rather Melissa there if she was soo jealous and wanted ruin their relationship? she obviously doesn't think Melissa the best women period but clearly she knows in order to have relationship with her brother she had to try with Melissa. she def not jealous of melissa
scoobydooby Erica and Boston.mom.....are you serious?? Teresa is so jealous of Melissa, she can't see straight!! It is very very obvious.
scoobydooby LOL, actually, I think Theresa considers herself the family matriarch and resents that her little brother didn't ask her permission to marry
The black hairspray that Joe Gorga admitted to using was my favorite scene from this show. He does seem down to earth and friendly , he just need to tone it down a bit.
You are a delusional person. You have made horrible comments about Melissa and even your brother. Maybe you need to re-watch the last two years to see what has come out of your mouth. You told your brother she would leave him for a richer guy, isn't that a comment that is meant to break up their marriage, putting crap in your brother's head about his wife. You need to stay out of everyone's business, you have a mess of a marriage to concentrate on. From what I have watched you start screaming how everyone has wronged you mostly when you are caught in your own lies, DEFLECTION is what you do, never taking ownership of your own words or they way you encourage your friends to talk bad about Melissa. Tell them to shut the hell up!
KLCC I think she talks about them like that because she is on a tv show and they pay her to sit there.
It's so obvious that Melissa is the problem. She can act all sweet and innocent but the only people that will fall for that are idiots. Don't worry, karma will come knocking at her door. In the mean time, I would ignore both of them. He may be your brother, but if he considers you scum, he's not worth pursuing a relationship with anymore, at least not now.
luckyx3 Mellisa went after Teresa's endorsement deals and that was really low. Mellisa knew she was being filmed- she was not playing fair.
what about Teresa and the lip syncing? She said that seasons ago and continues to say it. Heck she supports her children saying it on camera also.
boston.mom luckyx3 she was lip syncing and she called her out. why are all these creepy people saying tings about. Mel knew some scuzzy people who all seem to bw willing to rat her out on tv
boston.mom ladybug2005 luckyx3 Um Melissa does lip sync so I don't understand the problem. She wasn't insulting her, she is stating a fact. She didn't say anything as bad as implying Teresa's cookbooks aren't real books unlike her if your husband cheats it is because you don't blow him enough books....or many other things that Melissa repeatedly says.
Tre I can see how you can celebrated with your husband for fighting your brother, now that's sick. If you wanted to make up with your brother you would of did it before filming the show.
I noticed that too why would she celebrate with her husband in the hot tub, after that drag out fight that just happened between the two Joes. Teresa is all about herself, she's jealous of what Melissa and Joe have.
MsRachel She took a romantic bath with her husband to unwind. Yes, how awful after such a stressful day. God knows none of us would have done something with our husbands, while we were kid free to unwind after a bad day. I didn't see a lot of celebrating as much as quality time spending while they were away from their children.
Besides they probably had it planned ahead of time. I guess next time my brother and husband disagree I better make sure he understands sex is out for the next day or two just to make sure I am not celebrating in a creepy manner. Let's make sure this rule is told to Joe Gorga who admits that when him and Teresa have a fight he comes and has sex with Melissa. Now that is more disgusting than Joe and Teresa having some rare one on one time together. Just because all that drama went down, their life isn't on hold and doesn't mean they are celebrating.
Teresa I'm one of your biggest fans! I used to be one of Melissa's fans as well but she's a S ##T starter. What kind of wife would want her husband not talking to his parents & sister? I would NEVER allow my husband not to speak to his family! I'm so glad you kept pushing the issue to get all this drama resolved. All I will say is Kim G is NOT your friend ! Remember this keep your friends close keep your enemies closer! Caroline is a true friends!
I actually never post blogs. However, after this episode, it is completely clear how hypocritical and selfish Theresa is about everything. She says she doesn't talk about Melissa, then how is her own daughters saying mean things about their aunt. Theresa says her father would die if he knew Joe called her scum. Wait! What did her own husband call her? She has not taken responsibility for anything. Anytime Richie, Melissa, Joe, or anyone else tries to have Theresa take ownership, then she is playing this poor pitiful me game. Oh me, Oh my! Poor pitiful me! I have watched this season, and Theresa acts like she is 5 years old. Always the blame game. Grow up and put your big girl panties on!
if I were Teresa, I wouldn't take ownership of things I didn't do either. Melissa is a trouble maker, it's so obvious. Her laying on the floor begging for whatever was the ultimate proof. What was that supposed to accomplish? It was mean and self serving. She should have made her husband apologize to Teresa immediately when he called her scum. And it was her Joe who attacked Teresa's Joe. Then Melissa tries to break up a fight that she basically started and tries to blame Teresa for not intervening. I guess Joe Gorga shouldn't have started something he couldn't finish.
SweetPea0920 I totally agree SweetPea and anything Teresa has said about Melissa is either in defense or made into something it clearly wasn't. Like congrats to Melissa on her book deal, Melissa found as an insult. LOL Melissa is the one that needs to grow up
i hope it works out for you teresa by the end of the season! ive always been in your corner, i have a sister in law from hell too!! green with envy!!
I am so sick of you acting like victim.. oh poor me, look at what people are saying about me.. I don't say nothing, boo hooo. One of these days I'm going to record you saying you don't do stuff and right after record the part where you do, do things to other people. You are mean to Kathy and she has nothing but been patient with you and tried to help you but you don't see it that way because she is not agreeing with you and all the stuff you pull out of your crazy purse. Grow up and stop nagging about things. It's obvious you don't want to fix things, if you did, you would stop with all this pettiness.
You need to walk away from Joe and Melissa. Clearly, they are both animals. Live your life. I know that is hard since Melissa hijacked yours.
I can't get my hands o any Fabellini! I guess I have to drive to Jersey. I am a Tre fan. I have been trying to figure out what terrible things you have done these past few years. Caroline implies you always said mean things bout Mel and so does Jac. So you don't like her, some things do not need to be repeated and never are by true friends and ladies. Maybe some true friends will happen along. We all say things we shouldn't don't beat yourself up.
That seems to be the extent of your faults...some friends.
Can't they find a chich we can enjoy on the show. Several episodes ago they beat up on your friend at the gym. Sweet Kathy just kept calling her skinny bit--. rude. the wisper ladies are the ones you have to watch for. I want to like her, i really do but she comes across as fake and wanting your friends.
Wow malissa Gorga is truly a trouble maker.I feel for you. I cant emagine being ganged up on the way you have been. I hope your Brother and family catch on to Malissa here soon. Karma has a way of coming back but I do think
it does not come back untill the person has finished doing the harm. The reason of that is so they get the full amount coming. Take a deep breath sit back and let Malissa show her true colors.
