I hope you all had a great 4th of July! I enjoyed it with my family at the shore. We're all so thankful that we live in this wonderful country, and a special thank you to all the veterans and service men and women and their families for helping keep it that way!
Omg. When Melissa was down on her knees begging you to stop, all you had to do is pull her up, hug her and say I'm sorry. That's it! Think of your brother and Melissa as one person. Be happy that joe is happy. Just stop the childish jealousy. Just follow this simple direction if what you feel is true, when or if there are problems between them, joe will come to you for support. Support his marriage now. It will only benefit all of you in the end.
I thought these blogs were about the show. Stop trying to sell us your books and start talking about your feelings on the show. This still shows that you take no accountability for anything!
ROFLMAO are you watching the same show!!! Jellous of Melissa. Think more protective of her brother. Why Jellous of that ugly 10head instead of a 4head. She knows Melissa better then us all. She loves her brother with all her heart. She does not want to see him hurt. If i herd the things about my brothers wife like she has. I would feel the same way. You will see in the end.
In no way did i see him trying to down Jako son. By any way. Come on. saying that lots of them go on to do great things. I thought was a complement. Joe is not the sharpest pencil in the box. So you could turn his ignorance into a negative thing. Truly to me his heart was trying to say the right thing.
Enough with Teresa already. Bravo makes soooo much money. Set aside all of the adults, doesn't anyone else see the price Teresa's kids are paying by her being on the show. Save her children and write her off the show. Teresa and her wanna be gangster, plump husband, need to focus on being good parents and take parenting classes. Not creating drama for ratings so everyone can make a buck.
Teresa my dear you need to zip your lip and own up to the damage you've done!! Quit blaming everyone else PLEASE!!!! You are so jealous of Melissa you can't hardly stand it. I had friends like you whom I am no longer friends with. Open your eyes!!!
Tre, I absolutely adore you and Joe! Joe can be a little abrasive but I have to respect his honesty! You are right, blood is thicker than water and in my opinion, I believe that Ro and Kathy will be your best allies when you've all hit rock bottom! Joey is WRONG for how he has treated you. He does need to let Melissa fight her own battles with you and stay out of the middle. Based on my own experiences, it's the only way the drama will stop. You did the right thing by going and getting security. Joey attacked your husband and Melissa expected you to help Joe after he called you scum... my mouth hit the floor. She can't have it both ways. I didn't like to see them fighting either however, we can't say we didn't see this coming. Tre, I respect that you keep your mouth shut and seemingly ignore those you are hanging with that trash Melissa. On the other hand, when she's with Jac and Jac decides to trash you she chimes right in... "disgusting". She can't have it both ways. She needs to practice what she preaches and stop blaming you for everything and of course stop playing victim! I hope you all find your way back to each other! Take Care!
I am very sorry that you were called scum by your brother. Melissa likes to play the victim but you actually put this together to try to mend fences. When Melissa heard Joe call you scum she should have said right then and there this isn't right. How would Melissa feel if one day her sons called Antonia scum? Her deplorable comments about your husband and your marriage in the party bus was completely hypocritical. To think she was just complaining you sit by while other malign her name. She was the one maligning your name in front ot the group on a bus. Which is worse, you sitting quietly or Melissa playing the role of the instigator. Also does she not realize Joes nieces will see these and hear her bash their mother? Please dont' give up on your brother, he will realize what she is truly about after her book tour haha. She wants your level of fame and notariaty and she will do anything to manufacture it.
I agree to disagree with most of all the characters on RHONJ Teresa being an example of what not to do or act.....it shows us how the 99% percent live and act......quite entertaining. In our circles such behavior is unheard of....then again it is a reality show
Unfortunately Teresa, I don't think your relationship with your brother will ever be what it was - Melissa will never allow that to happen. It's too bad but she has his ear ALL THE TIME! How can you compete with that - even when you try to talk to him alone, she has him so brainwashed at this point - I hope everyone has finally seen Melissa's true colors. If she really wanted you and Joe to be friends, she has the power to make it happen and let it happen but she is constantly in his ear with negative things about you. Maybe one day he will see the light, I hope so. Good luck!
I find you plain gorgeous, beautiful, breathtaking. Cool as cucumber - team T. all way in.
Items banned from my and my friends households, anything with:
Kardashian on it,
Marco = Gorga junior,
I am mortified for Teresa. You must be a lunatic thinking that her kids – going to public schools will not hear about this, or Senior Mr. Gorga does not hear about all this. I just hope they are strong enough to shake it off. My heart breaks for Giudice and Senior Gorga. Big hugs T.
Hmmmm you and your little brother sure have a hot temper and ignites instantly! How do you control that? Your husband and your brother will not get along as long as you tell your husband everything tha goes wrong with your brother. Haven't seen the show after the first day at the retreat ... but you need to work on being calm and not a hot head.
why3cats Grammies28 Wrong! It's called a little boy shouting petty and mean insults to someone he knows won't smack them.
I don't know what's going on in here. But anyway, Teresa I see you now very clearly. You say you want to have a relationship with your brother, that you love him very much but your goal is to destroy his marriage. You had been extremely jealous of Melissa and is also clear that you want to destroy her reputation. So stop trying to show us you are the pacemaker because your behavior says all the opposite. You told your husband that Joe said you were a "scum" and you know your husband very, very well. You knew he was going to confront your brother. in an explosive way. There it go. You had it. Now don't try to cry over this. You are responsible for what happened.
Theresa I love you. I think you are adorable genuine real and just a good person over all. Missy is not a real person. she is a phony and I don't know how you ever tolerated her but its sad your brother does not see through her just yet. She is a gold digger. I know one when I see one. She step into a lucky situation and is acting like she is the queen of England. we all know what a tramp she was and is and used her sexual ways to get your brother. She is a good actress. Your brother fell for her phony nonsense in the sack. He will wake up one day and realize she is out for the money. just about everyone I talk to that watches the show sees right through her. Theresa ....................I am on your side. You are a good soul.
Joe's comments regarding Nicholas offended me as a person diagnosed with autism. If you know nothing (which was obvious), say nothing. You both were blessed with four beautiful daughters. How DARE he minimize what the Lauritas are going through in raising their son. He faces so many struggles in his life, and no matter how hard they all work, those struggles will never completely go away. SHAME ON JOE!
Though don't believe Joe was offending Nicholas specifically, he obviously is ignorant on the topic. Like you commented, he should have said nothing. That he allowed his dislike for Jac to then engage & unfairly connect w/his uneducated rant to include autism, was offensive.
Informative contributing post michelle.nicholas.77......
Watching you on this show is so sad. You play victim in every situation and have NEVER taken ownership. Your brother seems to be the only one hurt. I hope you guys stop acting like this and grow up. Its people like you that make me glad we are not rich. Watching what the show, money and fame did to you makes me thankful for my family. We may not have it all but we have each other.
The "Retreat" -- Rules of Engagement
Did no one notice that guests barely made it in the door before Teresa started gossiping about Jacqueline who wasn't even there?
For being the self-proclaimed "bigger-person" wouldn't the more pressing concern be to get agreement on ground rules for how everyone will interact? -No yelling, name calling, interrupting, ... and then demonstrating leadership by role modeling those behaviors?
With a couple of exceptions, the cast acts as if they were raised by wolves. -Even wolves adhere to a code of conduct.
Teresa, just say sorry, shame on you, just sitting there and listening to someone bad mouth your sister in law.
Teresa is so fake an boring on TV. She restricts what she says to try and look like the one who tries and yet she calculates every move. It is ridiculous she can't admit to anything she does and says.
Thersa needs to take ownership in her part that's what everyone wants but she blames everyone else it's all their falt she never liked Melissa and poor joe has had to hear about his wife from Thersa over and over again he's sticking up for his wife and Thersa needs to accept that she not #1 in his life his wife's is like it should be Thersa keep your mouth shut!!!!!!! Learn to like your family instead of tearing them apart !!!!!!!
Keep your head up Teresa! I hope you and your family are able to reconcile. Also hoping you get your own spin off without Melissa.
I feel that everyone, EVERYONE is to blamed. Instead of pointing fingers at everyone, point fingers at yourself: Melissa, Joe Gorga, Joe Guidice, yourself. There are people out here in this world who lost love ones case in point the Treyvon Martin case. You guys really needs to look up the word "family" in the dictionary all of you guys.
And I hope you guys work it out.
Why do you always run away when you are confronted with the "truth?" Can't you face up to the problems that are going on in your family? You are not innocent in all of this, everybody is at fault but you want people to believe that you did nothing wrong. You told your brother to "grow some balls" but you need to learn how to accept responsibility! You set up this whole thing and then you call Melissa a "witch" saying that maybe she would get along if there was a ghost there. How can you say you want things to be better and yet you constantly call her names and say things about her? That's a bit of a contradiction, don't you think Teresa? You're not being GENUINE!!
Yes! Teresa write your book that would be awesome . I love your family .. & Joe is so hilarious love him !!!! <3 xx <3
Teresa followers, please advise her to step back, heal her family, (that being her marriage and four daughters) and resume a normal life. I fear that this show has had such an egregious effect on her. When it first aired, she was secure, cute, a little ditsy but in an endearing way. This shrill, manipulative and almost manic woman is no fun to watch. She is in denial about her husband. Her oldest child looks miserable. He next to youngest daughter has a foul mouth and her parents look exhausted because of the drama. Please stop feeding into her rabid behavior and help her seek the peace that she so desperately needs, even if she doesn't even know it. Her brother and his family are not the problem, but they do escalate it.
I can't even believe I'm reading all these ridiculous comments. Has everyone just started watching the show or are most of you blind??? Teresa is behind all the lies and manipulation. She's so good that she's got all of you guys believing her. Shes a joke and a disgrace. She can't take accountability for any of her actions instead she blames it on Jaquelin or Melissa or Kathy. Always someone else. She can never say she was wrong and just apologize. If everyone on the show, that knows her personally not just threw a TV, has a problem with her than guess what maybe she's not the greatest person.
If everyone around you has a problem with you then maybe it's not everyone else with the problem.....maybe it's you!
Teresa - you were brave to put this together and not surprising, Melissa is doing everything she can to destroy any reconciliation. My brother is autistic plus other problems and I truly understand the exhaustive time it takes. He is now in his later 40's and can't work etc. I DID NOT FIND your husbands comments unkind. Although any pain of any kind is personal and tough on the parents and siblings, it isn't a death sentence and Jac uses it to an extreme. I do like the information she passes on, but I have always found her unstable and immature. I also will say her response as decent on this issue.
Jac needs to move on. She raised her daughter to respond in the same way and that got Ashley put in court. Like mother like daughter. She is probably still on for attention and using autism as an excuse to be relevant. The way she took the phone from Kathy was nuts and going off on Teresa just showed how nuts she is. She and Chris should worry about the law suites pending on them and get off the show. Do a special on Autism and get off the show.
Melissa needs to get out of the way of her husband and Teresa. Teresa and Joe should have gone on the retreat by themselves than do another retreat with the spouses in the future. Bet that would have been much more productive.
Good luck Teresa - remember we love you that is why you are the second highest paid housewife - because you are awesome even with your craziness too! Love Love Love you.
TexasThoughts Maybe if you had a child with autism and not a brother you would feel differently. Raising a child with autism is a tad bit more challenging than being a sibling - just sayin'.
Melissa set Teresa up!!! Using her best friend to talk about her So she would have more AMO before leaving for there trip!!! So obvious. Obviously Last thing Teresa wanted she new dam well they would blame her. Wake up Teresa!!!!!! Shes Good at sceeming!! Call her out!! They acuse with out proof so go for it
I watched Melissa's so-called friends at her lunch/dinner when she was speaking about her book. Her two "friends" were darting their eyes at each other as if they had their own negative opinions about Melissa and were not "fealing what she was saying". Then in the episode you see them with Theresa and they were bashing Melissa. Obviously they WERE not feeling Melissa and were ready to gossip about her. M DID NOT set that up, she was blindslided by her friends and I bet when she saw the episode she saw what was on their faces and how they were darting their eyes.
I believe Kim D and Theresa, et.al. have decided that being mean to people is fun and "makes good TV", especially mean to Melissa. It probably does but there are children and feelings involved and they should all be ashamed of themselves.
Some of the things that Teresa has said really hits home that she is against Melissa because she feels jealous of her. Some comments sound like she forgets he is her brother and acts like Melissa is the other woman and her brother is someone else. If she wants to have her brother in her life she needs to treat her sister-in-law better and her other family better and stop fighting and stop back-stabbing them. Maybe the fame has gotten to her or maybe she is protrayed that way on the show, etc. It is hard to tell. We should all take everything with a grain of salt since it is Tabloid and TV drama. I hope if it was something said about me that people would give me the benefit of seeing for themselves not in the "press". Keep the fighting on the show and away from me, I HATE CONFRONTATION. I just want to get along with everyone.
Although, might I add that based on what I "see" I like Jacqueline and Melissa and Kathy and Caroline more than Teresa. I liked Teresa much better when she was on Celebrity Apprentice and was rooting for her then. Not so much when she is fighting with her poor family, friends.
Good luck everyone on the show.
Teresa, I have seen this show since Season 1 and since then I have always disliked your husband. He thinks he is all that and a bag of chips. You are turning into your husband and that has sadden me a lot, because you where so fun at first. Own up to what you do and you will live better with yourself. Stop talking, keep your mouth shut and you will see your problems disappear. There is a mexican saying "You get what you crop", example... if you are creating a building garden and you are planting flowers, if they don't turn up as you expected it's because of how you have taken care of it. If you are not feeding it love then don't expect love back. Stop wanting other people to forgive, change or accept mistakes. CHANGE YOURSELF FIRST!!! Do it for you and your kids. Stop with all this madness. It's up to you to stop everything. Live your life and if you hear gossip, stop it right away, walk away and go about your life. Stop trying to live others!! Thank you.
Praying for you every day.. GOD will hear my pray for your change. I want you to be happy and this is what I will do for you. Move on!!
To get up and walk away and not listen is all about doing it with Class. Just because they want you to sit and fight there battles and get into confrontaion on there behalf is STUPID. Thats there way of doing things not yours. They have no class. You dont need to fight there battles!!!
This "Battle"?......Not individual, rather a 'Family Battle'. Deal w/it together!
Teresa, instigated and engaged this 'intervention'. I applaud that effort. So stick it out. No need to walk out because you don't agree. Whether thought(s) or (un-necessary disgusting) name-calling that both need to own.
Teresa, I have always thought you were hilarious and cute - even with your temper in past seasons. I hated seeing Joe and Joey fight! It's getting hard to watch the show now. It's just too much bad blood. You are not scum, you are a lovely Italian mother and wife. I can't believe Bravo didn't break up the fight earlier - shame on them for profiting on physical abuse! I wish you would stay away from the rest of the boring cast and get your own show. I wish Melissa would leave the show - she makes everything about her silly drama. She's toxic, manipulative, selfish and acts like a child. Good luck and wish you all the best!
There is no doubt that Juicy's comments about Jacq's son were insensitive and unnecessary. Only Jacq and Chris know the challenges of raising their son. However, his comment was not completely ignorant that there is a wide range of functioning levels on the autism spectrum. Although some individuals with this diagnoses face severe challenges, there are those on the lower end of the spectrum that do excel at careers in engineering and other math and science related fields. I work professionally in the developmental/intellectual disability field and have worked with examples at both ends of the spectrum. Juicy is no word-smith, but it seemed he was actually speaking of the capability and potential that many with the autism diagnosis have. Some major companies have created special recruitment departments to target individuals with autism as it is now being recognized that the differences those with autism have in processing information can be of benefit to certain fields. Temple Grandin, one of the most well known individuals with autism, is one of the most sought after specialists in her field of animal science.
kj1217 He meant know harm!! and ya know it... And what are we watching Lifetime or the tlc channel that you write three paragraphs about autism?! No offense but this isn't really the type of show you would want to use as a platform for autism! Lets just keep it real...
kj1217 No sane person (professional or not) would defend Joe's ignorance. I'm not talking about his ignorance regarding autism itself, because many still have no clue what this diagnosis entails. The man is a neanderthal because he pretends to know what the Lauritas are or are not going through, and he actually insults them by implying that their son's diagnosis didn't rip their hearts out of their chest. The man's behavior is simply sickening.
kj1217 And BTW-I'm someone who is diagnosed with autism AND I support others with this disorder. I was highly offended by Joe's remarks. While I am highly intelligent in some areas, there are others where I am severely lacking. That's what makes it a disorder! Don't try to minimize what myself and others like me have to deal with on a daily basis. I would rather be "normal" than be headhunted by companies looking for my unique take on the world.
The kid just(June 9-th) turned 4 years old:
Jacqueline Laurita @JacLaurita 12h Nick took his alphabet magnets the other day and spelled by himself…”Friend” “play” “train” “dog” “spider” “social” “One” “the” “you”. ..
Reading a tweet like this, makes me think, he may be ahead the game. I thought Joe was very positive with his comment. I do not understand and do not see where he was insensitive or offensive.
