Melissa Gorga weighs in on Victoria Gotti's comments about Teresa Aprea's mother.

Hi everyone!

Ahh! I'm holding onto summer like I hold my red wine glass when I watch the episodes of #RHONJ! 

Let me start by thanking Bravo for showing those beautiful pictures of my Aunt Louella. She was honestly one of the most positive, happy, and generous women I knew! She always went above and beyond what an aunt should be. I will always be grateful for my memories of her picking me up since I was a child and having me spend play dates with my cousin, Jenna. She will always be in our hearts. Cancer is so scary and we need to find a way to beat it soon. 

I was very grateful that Amber came by after she heard my aunt had passed. I am not a grudge holder, and I always appreciate when someone has good intentions. It was sweet of her to bring me soup, and I definitely needed a hug. It was also the first time she ever met my children, so it was a very nice visit. 

It was also good to spend the night with my sister-in-law. We love each other and our children love each other. We had a great time and I actually enjoyed watching The Godfather! Life is about health, happiness, and family.

Speaking of family, how cute is little Valentino? I love that Joe was trying to cheer everyone up and it completely worked! That puppy is a king in our house! I’m still trying to get him to stop peeing everywhere, but we love him!    

I had such a fun time doing the boudoir pictures for Joe! Every woman should try it. It's so empowering to be a woman and it makes you feel confident and sexy at the same time. Linda Marie made me feel so comfortable and she is just the best at what she does! Check out her website and go for it! Your significant other will be very grateful.

As far as what Victoria Gotti said on the episode, I think it was completely unnecessary, and as a fellow Italian woman, we all know to speak about someone's mother in a negative way is a BIG no no! I adore Teresa and Rino, and I feel for them with what was said. 

I’m off to enjoy to the final days of summer! See you next week!

Check in with my website for all the pics from my boudoir shoot! 

Lots of love,
Melissa
