Melissa dishes on her photo shoot.

By Melissa Gorga

Hi lovers!

Hope you all had an amazing weekend. I was in Miami for the weekend with Joe. We had such a great time at Mercedes Benz Swim Week there. I was honored to be asked to go to a couple shows, and the swimwear coming out in 2013 is fierce! It was so great to be able to spend a little time with just Joe. Every couple needs that once in a while!

I'm so glad you got to see the photo shoot for my single cover. They can be so stressful, but I love being a girl and changing outfits and makeup! Antonia loves them too. I always keep her with me when I do them and always let her put on whatever dressy outfit she wants. I have the photographer take pictures of her as well. She loves it! I wish you could have seen the little poses she does! She's truly my little princess, and I don't ever want her to look at me taking pictures and wishing she was the one taking them, so I always include her. She thinks it's her photo shoot half the time! How funny is my makeup artist, George? He cracks me up. He's always telling me how to pose and how to move, and yes, he does incredible makeup! It's flawless every time. You should check out his website. I also want to thank Alisa Maria who styled me for this shoot and Moises De Pena the photographer. It was a great shoot!

Joe Owns Melissa
Congrats to Teresa on such a successful book signing. The books are doing great, and I am happy for her. As far as the recipe goes, whether it's Kathy's mom’s or Teresa's mom’s just seems silly to me. They are one family; their parents are brother and sister. They are the whole family's recipe. Most families pass recipes down, most come from a grandmother, and they both have the same grandmother. So come on ladies, let's just say it’s a family recipe! Done!

I'm proud of Kathy for following her dream of sharing her desserts with everyone. She threw a great tasting, and I love how Victoria and Joey help her. They are such great teenagers! I love seeing how everything she does is a family project.

As far as the men go, boys will be boys... If Joe Giudice got is just mad Joe didn't return tools, and he continues to speak the way he does about his wife's brother, that's sad. He has continually bashed me as well, and in the long run he's only making a fool of himself.

Well, with the nonsense aside, we are all about to go on a beautiful trip together. Brighter days are ahead. Thank you, Jesus!
