Happy 4th of July week! Happy summer! I'm not gonna lie, I'm so happy right now. Things are so so good. (Maybe it's because I finally got a taste of my own medicine. Had no idea I needed that so badly. Yum!) Seriously though, we are all in a good place now, and you'll soon see how we got there. I'm sure we'll still use our blogs to explain things on each episode and defend ourselves, but that was months ago and this is now. And right now, we're all pretty happy. At least I am.
I'm headed down to the shore with my family this week and we'll be grilling up every meal like we always do. To help you with your holiday grilling, I decided to give you an excerpt from my new cookbook Fabulicious!: On The Grill, Teresa's Smoking Hot Backyard Recipes this week as well as two of my favorite recipes. Enjoy!
Everything about Italy is hot: the climate, the people, the fashion, even the shape of the country—how much hotter can you get than a tall boot with a high heel?
Everything about Italians is hot, too -- and not just on the outside. We’re hot blooded. We are famous for our passion and our tempers, for our love and our loyalty. And when it comes down to it, we just like things hot. We like our partners hot; we like our weather hot; and we love our food hot.
Next season get all Teresa's relatives off the show and start with new faces and friends. I'm sick to death of watching them try to destroy Teresa. The only one I really like is Rosie, she is a charictar ! Love watching her.
I am getting sick of Melissa and Joe, on the other hand, Im enjoying Teresa's part on the show more this season. Jaqueline is acting psycho, and Caroline is sooo irrelevant. I also like Kathy and her cooking.
We love you TRE!! Keep putting out your cookbooks. They are brilliant! The only reason Joe n Melissa have said you cant cook it because they are bitter about Melissas singing career not taking off. They want to sabotage your endeavors which isn't working because you are always on the best sellers list! And now they are trying to promote her "marriage" book. PAAH-LEASE!!
If you concentrated on your marriage instead of Melissa and Joe I think the show would be ok again. Tired of you obsession with your brother.....remember.....he isn't your husband!
@DawnfromMinneapolis I think u need to watch the s how more so you can see what REALLY is going on.
#TeamTeresa since day 1! Teresa, what Melissa doesn't understand is that you came on the show just for fun. You were funny and gorgeous with a fun family and America fell in love with you. You didn't force it down our throats like Melissa has tried to do with her "singing" and now a love book? This is why you have an ARMY of fans behind you. Yes, you have had some financial and maybe marriage issues but that's real. You don't hide it from the cameras. That's why we love you. The other cast always wants to pick at your troubles which is so cruel and evil. Melissa trying so hard to come off as perfect, just isn't cutting it. No one believes it. Her and Joe try to hard to be a "sexy couple." Keep selling you amazing cookbooks. Everything you out your name on sells! Can't say the same for Melissa. She blames you for eeeeverything even when it has nothing to do with you. Then she runs back to Caroline and Kathy to talk smack about you. I literally watch the show to see you!
dollieW No one believes it? I think it is the other way around. Teresa is jealous of Melissa. Teresa feels Melissa took her brother away when he married her because then Teresa was no longer the center of her brother's world. Teresa has some denial issues and she needs to hang around some better people (Kim G comes to mind, get away from trash) and start sticking up for her family. ALL of her family, Melissa included. Melissa IS her family now and has been for quite awhile. She even lets strangers (like you) trash talk her family and doesn't say anything except hand out recipes.
Team Tee. Melissa could never measure up to you, women to women she is jealous of you, keep being true to yourself and family us viewer can see who's the problem and it ain't you.
I Would't Eat A Thing Teresa Ever put out in a Book She Can't even cook And to Watch Her Dad Doing more work Tonight then she Just After getting out of the Hospital Was Sick to watch She Should of waiting on him On her Knees But Not feeding him anything she Made or say's she Made Put She did Look Like she Knew what she was doing giving a Hand Job To That Casing for the Sausage What do you think?She"s so Fake And I do No Understand why she's still on the show And get rid of Kim D. Do we Really need them to make the show Great?
if you really wanted to make your brother feel better...and make your parents happy...you would not associate yourself with Kim G....that simple...You guilty because you participate in destroying your brother life. I would not believe for a second that you did not know what the lunch should be about knowing that Melissa friend is coming and Kim knows all well why...You are the worst sister the earth can sustain. You vaguely commented that you knew about the rumors ...yet you sat there saying nothing during lunch as if you swallowed your tong. You don't want your parents to like your brother...You want to push him away...There is not a millimeter in your heart to feel your brother pain.
You are the best housewife! If you leave the show, most people would stop watching it! Your brother is so dumb not to see how Melissa manipulates him and how she's always playing the victim! If she wasn't a stripper, then why did she get so nervous when the bald guy came up to her at the fashion show last season?! If it wasn't for you, she wouldn't even be on the show! Btw.. who is she you to write a book on advice about marriage?? She can't even get along with her husband's sister to make him happy... Btw.. I think Milania is hilarious!!
Show wrap-up by me! 1) Melissa never denied cheating; she just immediately deflected to Teresa! Too effin funny. Guilty! 2) Cryoline is getting some respect this season from me, just because she made some very obvious changes to herself. I'm sure all the negative chatter on the web about her contributed to her turn around. 4) Jacqueline really doesn't know how to recover from her foot-in-mouth disease. She needs to apologize to Teresa for opening her mouth last season, and be done with it. Every time she continues to try and defend herself for her actions last season, she loses more and more credibility. Just apologize already and be done!! 5) Rosie's stock is going up, slowly. 6) Joe Gorga is still brainless, and he isn't half the man his sister is! You go girl! Can't wait to see Juicy Joe put him in his place...
Listen Tre....my best friend always says "siblings are genetic accidents" but your brother blew it with his idiot wife. Can we PLEASE get rid of the boring manzo's, and jack. what a waste of time. i have to fast forward whenever they come on.
This show would be off the air w/out you... Keep doing what you do, you and Joe hang in there, your daughters are straight comedy I love them, I have no idea how you and Joe do it (they are high strung little ladies) but you are making it work and I salute you both... Blessings!
Teresa, I really enjoy watching you, your hubby and precious daughters. What a beautiful family you have and what a wonderful Mom you've shown to be. You're why I watch the show!
I can't believe you hang out with those miserable women like Kim D and all the rest you had dinner with on tonight's episode. They are there to start trouble with you and your Melissa and your brother. How could you even want to be around them? You are NOT helping the situation by going ANYWHERE with them or even TALKING to them. If you have any class dump them for good.
@BlueSky7 I agree I swear that chic has selective hearing. Everyone runs back and talks about what these said or did. This ladies are living their lives around Theresa. They need to get a life and fast
Team Theresa for sure...I really think all of the other NJ housewives are jealous of you....... keep doing what you're doing
Teresa....after seeing how you hunt and peck the keyboard, I wonder how you are putting out these blogs, not to mention...a cookbook?
ALSO TERESA,I WOULD LOVE FOR YOU TO DO SOMETHING LIKE FASHION CREATIONS FOR YOUR KIDS INSPIRED BY YOUR KIDS LETS DO IT SISTA!!
YOU GOT THIS,AND LET THE HATERS HATE GIRL,
I watched a marathon. Couldn't be more of a fan now in hindsight. When Melissa and Joe wanted you ruined on the show, you weren't playing back. You wouldn't react. So your baby brother took the only thing he had, the private conversation he had with you, and re-created telling his wife so they could get it on air. That arced the storyline that season. If that's not malice and plotting that's unforgivable, I don't know what is. The truth always comes out and the truth is they tried to ruin you on this show. No Mt retreat could ever fix that. They should be ashamed. And the Wkilies did everything in their power to help them, The phone messages, conversations around the table, everything was so planned to hurt you. Plain as rain and all because they wanted to have what you had, and wanted you NOT to have it. Wow.
louise123 Exactly. They deliberately went on this show mainly to ruin Teresa. Jealousy is a terrible thing.
Teresa, good lord you area survivor. Listen, the only valid points in all these arguments after the dust has settled is that you didn't want your family on the show. You didn't. But now we see why. It's very clear to me now. It cracks me up when people say you are jealous of Melissa. Here you were on a hit reality show in pop culture, making your way haphazardly to being the break out star with your quirky ways and big personalities in your house, and you had vultures circling,and circling waiting to get theirs. Melissa had to have your life on this show, and you're jealous of HER?? She wanted to have YOUR LIFE! You were leaving her alone and come hell or high water, she was going to be on your existing show. They knew you wouldn't want them on because you knew what they would do--and they did it. When there's so much coveting, and internal jealous that's consuming them, it makes people do crazy things, especially when the money stakes are so high. And boy did they come on swinging. You've just been playing offense with your own family and it's sick. Melissa wants fame so bad, she invaded your friends and fans with malice. Unfortunately, everyone on the show hated that you were the break out star so they teamed up nd you didn't stand a chance. Fortuntely we saw through it. Listen, your stuff sells, if they had won you wouldn't sell a book and that's what they hate! They couldn't even come up with good reasons for the attack, so promised us it was coming. Never came. They are now sitting in the ludicrousness and vileness of their actions. I hear you make up with Melissa but it will be short lived. The jealousy is too deep, and your brother will only be happy if you fall flat on your face in front of the world and your parents. That's been the goal from the beginning. I wish you'd forget them. Every Gorga ancestor must have rolled over in their graves the minute Melissa said 'I do." Now she's working on selling out her own family for a blessed buck. I wish I could have been a fly on the wall for that thought process when she knew the pop star wasn't working, and needed her next sensationalized gimmick. She 's desperately trying to hit with something and its not gonna work. She contrives every scene and you never have.
You are amazing. the entire show revolves around you. What would Rich have to say otherwise? also can we get him off the show. IM tired of him
FlowerGirl1 Amen to that!!! Let's get Rich off the show. He is the biggest instigator of them all. If he were a true friend to Joe Gorga he would be trying to help Joe mend his relationship with Teresa instead of egging him on saying bad things about her.
I feel so sorry for you that you have let the greed of money rule your world you deserve all that you get. you aren't the same person you were in the beginning. it's like you sold your soul to the devil for fame and money,
My first time posting a reply to any of the cast blogs. Not the type but I just had to reply......i've been watching the show since the first season and it seems that you have been through so many changes. My heart breaks for you and your brother. I was estranged from my younger sister for several years and God has finally answered my prayers and we are back in each others lives. Our parents are passed now and we are all each other has.........i just wanted to say Im happy to hear you have made things right with your brother. We Italians are proud, to a fault sometimes but it shouldnt cost us our family. God bless and thank you for sharing your life with us.
Teresa, i've said this before. i'll say it again. Tell bravo tv you want nothing more to do with joe and stupid Melissa and they have to go. don't you see they constantly make up with you to stay in the show. call some shots and make jealous Melissa go. WE DON'T LOVE HER, KATHY, ROSIE, CAROLINE OR RECENTLY JACQUELINE. LEAVE!!! you're famous already.
How come your daughter Gabby isn't featured more. It all about Milania and Gia. Your daughter Gabby has some insight not being featured......
I don't think you will ever have a relationship with your brother. The reason is because you take no personal responsibility and you are very very jealous of his wife. You are a very immature woman and your children are a reflection of you...wild and out of control. You are an embarrassment.
Hey T, after watching you and your tribulations over the years, I've decided your crap is almost as important as national security.
It's important enough for you to watch, sign in and comment on her blog. Love, love, love!
Sometimes you just have to let things go. Your brother is an adult and if he has made a mistake, then it's his mistake and you need to let it go. Let him live his own life. He may or may not see things your way but as long as he thinks that he's happy, you should be happy for him. Live and let live.
to change the subject of your cookbooks that you sell............. do you ever take the blame for anything???? I've always heard you tell others that it is somebody else's fault for all the problems surrounding you, because you say it's definitely not my fault? Who are you kidding? The viewers are smarter than you realize
gasalgal SOOO true! Some people always feel it's the other persons fault. No wonder the Giudice's & Gorga's keep going in circles! Yikes!
I made both of your recipes yesterday and they were a such a hit. Several people asked for them and I was happy to past them along and told them to try your cook books. Thanks again for posting them can't wait until your cook book arrives so I can try some more. You should be proud your books sell as for Melissa her book will bomb and will be sold in the fiction section. Keep your head up and a smile on your face.
Greetings from Illinois! I have not as yet looked at your cook books. But you just tempted me and I think I will purchase the latest! I enjoy you on the show Teresa. Keep it real girl! Ann
I don't think you will be disappointed. Bought them at Christmas for a gift - easy to read & follow and not to mention delicious.
I give them as bday presents for my girlfriends and word got out-now all my friends send me reminder dates for their bdays! They are like candy for your table. Just plain pretty and usable---I'm working my way through it like the Julia Childs movie-ha!
Teresa you just be you I have and thru all seasons have loved you my heart breaks at you and your brothers problems. I haven't had a relationship with my own brother in 9 yrs and it breaks my heart , close ties to your own problems with Joey. Hold your head up strong as you have proven over these past years and take the reins like you have. Your girls are awesome and so is the Joe Juicy. I wish you the best ever ... Trish in Tennessee
I saw some of the pictures of your bar-r- que recipes and man...they look very good. can't wait to try it out. Thanks for being so fabulicious.
thank you for the recipes. what a nice gesture for the holiday and rest of the grilling season. much love to you and yours. stay strong, fabulous and keep on loving life !! vita e bella !! :) Happy Summer ~ i love, love , love this time of year as well...
Teresa, why don't YOU stomp around like your brother and demand that he and Melissa "OWN UP" to contacting Danielle to ruin you, and to putting you through two seasons of a jealousy induced, MIND NUMBING attack. Joe says he won't let you off the hook. All you ever did was say something to him in a private conversation that he re-staged for the show so we would know. That alone was unforgivable--think about it? The motive was to cut you deep on camera and hurt your persona. What brother does that? THEY are the ones who should be ashamed and should fess up. They wanted the life you had on this show and once they got it-that wasn't enough---they wanted yours gone from you. They don't just want it for themselves,,,they want you to NOT have it. It's sick. And Kathy is right up there with them. The odds of finding a family with two separate entities willing to do that to a family member are staggering. Unlucky you! Forget about them---let them phase out- they are boring and lifeless when they aren't talking about YOU.
