Melissa: "Amber Put Me in a Bad Position"

Melissa shares her thoughts on the "cray cray" first responders party.

By Melissa Gorga

Hi Everyone,

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey Sundays at 8/7c on Bravo and stream next day on Peacock.

We had such a great time on #WWHL last night. Joe and I love the crazy games Andy and his team come up with, which somehow always involve Joe losing his clothes, LOL! We try to keep it light and fun. The opposite of last night’s episode.

So the first responders party at Bobby’s was definitely a little cray cray, and you only got to see the beginning! I totally accept the part I played in all of the craziness, but as I have said, I really felt like Amber put me in a bad position by telling me the rumor “she heard through the grapevine” about Nicole in the first place. It only felt right to give Nicole the opportunity to clear up if what Amber “heard” was true or not. I had really hoped that we could have all talked about what happened, cleared the air, moved on, and enjoyed the party. Obviously that didn't happen, and now the men got dragged in.


As you saw in the episode, the Marcheses continue to contradict themselves. They seem to REALLY want to be liked by the Giudices and at the same time find ways to let us all know that they are too good for them. I’m confused, which is it? I also think Jim talks a big game and wants to portray a certain type of image that I would hope isn’t who he truly is, because no one can be that judgmental. What I do know it that it's not cool for a grown man to walk up to another man and call him a dumb ass in his ear in a very nasty way. Joe was sitting down and not in Jim's face at all. Jim went too far. Joe just was defending his family, and for Jim to get in his face like that? I mean come on! He's asking for a reaction, begging for it.


So tune in next week and see how it all turns out.


I also want to say thank you to everyone who supported the launch of my jewelry line on HSN! It was such an incredible experience going down to appear on HSN, and we sold out of many pieces! I am so grateful and cannot express my gratitude enough. I absolutely love that you are all tweeting me pictures in the jewelry. You all look so stylish and fab! Thank you, thank you, thank you! You can still shop the collection on and get your #GorgaGlam!!

Until next week!
