Melissa Gorga claims Teresa called Antonia ugly!

4 Oct

More shocking details emerge from the terrible Us Weekly article featuring the Housewives Vs. Teresa. Interesting article, considering they bashed Teresa all year long for doing articles (about herself and her family, not her castmates). Melissa claims she got “not a penny” for her last cover bashing Teresa. Yet Jacqueline Laurita tweeted that “when its one person on the cover they get paid, when its three only one gets paid [I did not get paid].” Someone’s lying, but what else is new. Here are some details from the Us Weekly interview with the ladies, with more lies in my opinion as told to RadarOnline:

In an all new interview, the other RealHousewives of New Jersey have slammed themost unpopular cast member in the show’s history, and the details aren’t pretty,RadarOnline.com is reporting.

Not only has Teresa Giudice been accused to trying to set up her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga by revealing her alleged past as a stripper, new details have come out about how she has torn her family apart and allegations of how her husband, Joe, has cheated on her several times.

As the reunion shows kicked off last weekend, the Housewives spoke to the issue of US Weekly, and Melissa Gorga especially hinted that she has plenty still to reveal about husband’s sister.

“When she stops telling lies about me, I’ll stop telling the truth about her,” Melissa vowed.

After “Strippergate” feelings between the Housewives became super strained and Teresa barely has a relationship with her brother Joe Gorga now – and to make matters worse she’s making her parents take sides in the family feud!

Speaking about whenever Teresa, 40, sees her parents Giacinto and Antonia, Melissa,33, also said: “Every time they’re together she tells them a laundry list of terrible things against us.

“They’re more distant with us now. Joe feels like she’s poisoned their brains. Teresa needs them so they’re standing by her.”

Teresa’s marriage also comes under fire. In the second reunion episodeJacqueline Laurita claims that Teresa once caught Joe having sex with a woman on his desk and insiders say that Joe’s wandering eye is an “open secret”.

“You walked in on your husband when he had someone on the desk in his office,” Jacqueline told Teresa.

“Teresa and Joe are very unhappy,” an insider told Us Weekly. “Joe feels tremendous pressure to give her this big, over the top life.”

However Teresa furiously denied this, claiming: “We’re happily married. I don’t need to defend myself.”

Teresa is also accused of being totally heartless. When Jacqueline admitted at the reunion that her autistic three-year-old son couldn’t say “I love you” anymore the tears were flowing…everyone cried except Teresa.

Jacqueline said: “Teresa was like that all year. My son had been regressing while we were filming and I was doing a lot of crying.

“If I went to talk about my son she would quickly change the subject and start bashing her family. Despite what she’s claiming on TV she wasn’t there when I needed her the most.”

The reunion also showed some of Teresa’s most vicious behavior yet, according to the report.

Among other things Teresa slammed Caroline Manzo’s daughter Lauren, 24, for her decision to get a lap band procedure.

“Lauren has all time in the world to work out. She took the easy way out,” Teresa reportedly sniped.

And, even her seven-year-old niece Antonia wasn’t spared! Mom Melissa said that when she signed her daughter to a modeling agency, Teresa said: “I heard Antonia got accepted. Yeah the ugly kids always get picked.”

Melissa went on to say that Teresa is two-faced and fakes all emotion for the cameras, and that her teary reconciliation with Jacqueline was totally for show.

“That’s how she filmed with me,” Melissa said. “She’d be nice on camera and as soon as they were done, she’d be like ‘f**king b*tch’.”

And it’s got so bad that Melissa has put her New Jersey mansion up for sale. She added: “I moved to this town so my kids could go to school with their cousins.

“But after this I got really scared. I don’t want them around anybody who is bashing their mother.”

If Teresa did say this about Antonia, that is terrible. But honestly, I just don’t believe it. One because I don’t see her attacking a child like that and two, the girl is just so gorgeous I cannot see how anyone would say it. I think Melissa believes her own lies. And poisoning her parents again Joe and Melissa? Um, no. I think the parents clearly can see things like the above cover and know who is hurting the family. Teresa never brings them into this but Joe and Melissa clearly do. Sad sad sad…

EXCLUSIVE! RHONJ: Melissa Gorga’s Us Weekly connection revealed!

3 Oct

Well well, lookey what we have here. Melissa Gorga on a magazine cover. Why, you ask? Because of Teresa. The same cannot be said for Teresa’s covers, which are always about her. Her family, her marriage, her kids, her companies. Melissa on the other hand is only worthy of a cover story when playing the victim and talking ABOUT Teresa. The ladies faulted Teresa for having a “7 cover deal” with In Touch (which is bogus considering there is at least 15 covers out there to date). But let’s take a look at Melissa and her Us Weekly connection. Seems they always publish negative stories about Teresa…and coincidentally publish complimentary stories about Melissa. This girl certainly knows who and how to work it to get what she wants. Here’s why: Continue reading

Teresa Giudice says Caroline had secret weight loss surgery!

1 Oct

Teresa Giudice sent in her Bravo blog and as usual she completely gives the other ladies a virtual bitch slap. I love how she doesn’t really address Melissa, since her and Melissa did not really get into it yet on the reunion. Part 2 I hear…  She does however take Caroline to task for her secret weight loss strategies that she uses while professing to eat less and exercise. 

Hi Sweethearts,

Like every Housewife in every city, I think filming the reunion is one of the worst parts of our job. It’s a long, long day, it always gets ugly, it’s hard to sit through and even harder to watch. At least this year I knew what I was walking into: I knew the other cast members, even my family, were going to band together to bash me. Last year was a total shock. This year was just sickening and sad.

I think one big difference between New Jersey and the other cities though is that most of the women on our show prepare for weeks for the ambush. They write little notes and look over every little thing I ever wrote. They’re so desperate to make me look bad. Here’s the thing: I don’t care. I know who I am and I don’t need to prove it to any of them. And I’m certainly not going to waste my off-camera, family time looking up words in the dictionary and making obsessive lists about them. For one, I’m not obsessed with any of them. If none of them had showed up at the Borgata, I think me and Andy could have still filmed a good show. For two, I’m not desperate to prove them all wrong, because they prove it all by themselves in every blog and every interview. I don’t have to dig all the way down to vocabulary words (and PS for the millionth time: spell check! It’s not hard!) because I’ve got nothing else. Their lies and contradictions are right there in black-and-white and there are far too many to list!

I do never know what crazy angle the other women are going to take at me, so my strategy is to sit there and be as calm and mature as I can. As calm and mature as anyone can filming all day with 10 people coming at you! I’m not an actress, I don’t practice in the mirror at night, so my reaction isn’t always perfect. But I’m not perfect. I’m just me.

I’m not proud of everything I said at the reunion, but I am proud of the things I DIDN’T say. As they were yelling at me, I kept reminding myself not to say this or that about their private lives, I kept thinking about Dina and her and Caroline’s mom, Nettie, and family stuff I did not want them to hear me say. It was a struggle because they attack me so viciously and yet they have their own skeletons, their own public scandals and newspaper articles and financial problems that don’t get discussed on the show, because I won’t discuss them. They do it to me, but I won’t do it back. So when Caroline fired at my appearance, yes I fired back. It wasn’t a great moment, but I can only be pushed so far.

Once we started going there with each other on our appearance, I guess it opened a can of worms for me that has really bothered me for a long time: Caroline’s hypocritical and crazy unhealthy view of herself and how her view upsets her daughter. First of all, I have no problem with Caroline’s body. Everybody is different and every size can be beautiful. But you have to own it, not lie about it. What I can’t stand is that Caroline has for years talked about how she loses weight naturally, she even did interviews on her “portion control,” meanwhile she’s hiding behind a secret surgery. I’m sorry, I don’t like that. It’s one thing to keep your private business private, but then don’t go being the poster child for natural weight loss and lying to everyone. And especially when you’re lying to the public, you’re helping create this body image lie that young girls are suffering from. Imagine if I told everyone I got bigger bubbies because I just took a certain vitamin. Guess what? It’s not true and that’s not fair to the public who really wanted to know how I did it.

Then you had her big storyline all season: hovering over Lauren’s shoulder and obsessing about her weight. I would NEVER allow that to be my storyline. Poor Lauren. When Caroline said in one of her on-camera interviews that she “couldn’t even relate” to Lauren’s struggle because she’d “been tiny her whole life,” I realized what the problem was: Caroline. You should embrace your children and how they look, not constantly remind them how miserable they are, making them even more miserable.

And let’s get this straight: Lauren was 185 pounds. Not 285. She’s 24. Do you think major surgery chopping up your stomach is the answer for that extra 30 pounds? I don’t. The ones who are sending out the bad message to kids in America are Lauren and Caroline for acting like Lauren was a prehistoric beast before and the lap band saved her life. The lap band surgery is a miracle for some people, for people who are extremely unhealthy, who have tried everything, who’ve had babies and are older with slow metabolisms. Look at Lisa Lampanelli. I know she tried everything, and the lap band worked wonders for her. She looks amazing! That’s the person who should get lap band, not a 24-year-old with a controlling mother. Sorry, but that’s my opinion.

I do want to apologize to anyone watching and any of my friends and family if it seemed like I only think skinny is beautiful. That’s absolutely not true. My mother is the most beautiful woman I know and she’s not a toothpick. My husband isn’t super skinny and I call him “juicy and delicious.” He’s sexy to me. My friends are all different sizes and all beautiful. What your body looks like doesn’t matter to me at all (unless you’re a big public hypocrite about it!). I know the “blubber” comment was really random, so I want to explain where it came from…

I have a habit of remembering certain words when I hear them and using them later in a totally different way. Like when I heard about John Mayer saying Jessica Simpson was “sexual napalm” I thought that was a really good description of how something clings to you, and I used “napalm” in my blog. Before the reunion my friend and I were talking about how I feel bad now about how everyone treated Danielle. I didn’t see it, how bad everyone was to her, until last year. And my friend was like: “It’s like your living in a Judy Blume novel! You’re in Blubber! You were friends with the mean girls and you didn’t realize how mean they were until they turned on you!” I guess I just had that in my head and “blubber” came out! I didn’t plan to say something so crazy, the word was just in my head. I was thinking about a book about mean girls, not trying to be a mean girl! Sorry!

There’s really not much more to say. Rosie shocked me, but then again, she really didn’t. I think you got to see a bit more of the Kathy that I know… And Melissa and Jacqueline… stay tuned because their crazy is just getting started!

Thank you all for your kind words and support! Follow me on Twitter @Teresa_Giudice or visit my website at http://www.teresagiudice.com for more information on my appearances, where to buy Fabellini, Milania Hair Care, and PearlBrite!

Tanti Baci,
Teresa xx

It has always been widely reported, but never proven, that Caroline had lap band surgery as well. I wonder if that is what Teresa is referring to as the secret weight loss surgery…or if she means the tummy tuck mentioned after the Blubber3 incident. Sounded more recent to me…

RHONJ decoded: What they REALLY meant.

1 Oct

So being from New Jersey, I have the wonderful talent of being able to decode the verbiage that is RHONJ. Well that and I am an intuitive, snarky brat when I wanna be 🙂 So, here you have it. I am going to decode a few of the night’s best quotes and tell you what it really meant. Some may be paraphrased as I have no more Xanax left so I cannot watch the show again for accuracy. Buckle up bitches (can I say this at the start of all my posts from now on???), you’re about to be schooled…Jersey-style!

What they said: 

Lauren Manzo: My mom let me have lapband…

What they meant: My Mommy paid for my lapband. Or was it Daddy?

What they said:  

Andy Cohen: Kathy, Kathy, we get it. Enough.

What they meant: Stop wasting airtime. You are irrelevant and not even going to be here next season.

What they said: 

Kathy Wakile: You’re father’s a coward.

What they meant: I am going to say the most shocking thing I can think of so that Andy and co. think I bring enough drama to be asked back. The mom is a liar thing didn’t work, so I am going to go with this.

What they said: 

Teresa Giudice: He was Audriana’s boyfriend, but now they broke up.

What they meant: I am uncomfortable and don’t know what to say so let me insert  joke here to ease the tension.

What they said: 

Caroline Manzo: You and your Christmas pageant dress…

What they meant:  You look ten times better than me, so I better attack whatever else I can find.

What they said: 

Andy Cohen: You do go a little (hand signal crazy)  on Twitter

What they meant: Seriously Jac, you are bat shit crazy and your Twitter rants make you look like a fool. But do keep doing it, for ratings of course.

What they said: 

Teresa Giudice: Rich? Yeah, with his yellow teeth.

What they meant: Rich? Yeah, with his yellow teeth.

What they said: 

Melissa Gorga: I was on a red carpet and they asked me about Teresa.

What they meant: I was fame whoring and it was, like, so totally annoying that all they wanted to do, was like, talk, like about Teresa.

What they said: 

Melissa Gorga:  That is so wrong. You don’t go on someone’s looks.

What they meant: Except of course when I am talking about Angelo, Kim D., or anyone else I deem worthy of an insult.

What they said: 

Lauren Manzo: Spell napalm. Go ahead, define it, spell it, go ahead.

What they meant: I am a bitter, nasty bitch so I sit on the computer trying to find ways to discredit you while simultaneously throwing darts at a picture of Lindsey and suckling from Mommy’s teet.

What they said: 

Jac Laurita: Yes you did and I have the recordings to prove it.

What they meant: I can totally drum up any fake evidence I want and say legally I cannot play it. WOO HOO! Everybody drink!!!

What they said: 

Jac Laurita: Hi Andy.

What they meant: Everybody drink!

What they said: 

Caroline Manzo: My brother and I were very scared for her and her mental state.

What they meant: She got ridiculously drunk at Kim G’s house the night before and we were afraid she would either castrate Andy or blow some of Bravo’s best kept secrets.

What they said: 

Melissa Gorga: This bitch is crazy.

What they meant: JOE!! Yell shame on you from backstage or no sex for a week!

What they said: 

Kathy Wakile: Your show, the Teresa Show.

What they meant: Its not just your show, anyone can be on it. Well, except me. Because its more fun watching paint dry than me bike riding, pretending to want to buy restaurants I cannot afford, taking my daughter to see colleges she has no intention of attending or watching my husband in any capacity whatsoever.

What they said: 

Teresa Giudice: Yeah, everytime you are with my parents you tweet a picture of it to piss me off.

What they meant: This, this and two others that were since deleted. 

What they said: 

Lauren Manzo: Because of dickheads like you.

What they meant: This freaking dress is cutting off my circulation.

What they said: 

Jac Laurita: You wanted me to call her out and call her a stripper.

What they meant: I would  never do such a thing. I have a, uh, soft spot, for ex-strippers. Unless its Danielle Staub. Then its wrong. EVERYBODY DRINK!

What they said: 

Jac Laurtia: They hid assets, and purposefully defrauded.

What they meant: We hid assets better than them. EVERYBODY DRINK!

What they said: 

Caroline Manzo: I want to go home.

What they meant: Al is alone in Atlantic Titty. I NEED to keep on eye on him.

What they said: 

Teresa Giudice: You said in your blog Jacqueline that I never spoke badly about Melissa and Joey, to you.

What they meant: Yeah, I read famewhorgas.wordpress.com bitch!

What they said: 

Teresa Giudice:  Blubber, Blubber and Blubber.

What they meant: Didn’t you wear this dress last year? Either way…too tight.

What they said: 

Teresa Giudice: You copied my eye shadow.

What they meant: You want to be me. You copy everything I do. I am going to use a poor example of this because I am on the spot, but you really really do.  

What they said: 

Melissa Gorga: Can you look at me? I am tired of staring at your weave all night.

What they meant:  If you don’t face me, how can I get camera time?

Well there ya have it…there is more I could translate, but I will save my sanity for part two.  Oh and p.s. Rosie Pierri meant exactly what she said…no translation needed.

Teresa Giudice says Melissa’s skeletons are all about to come out!

25 Sep

And here you have it. Teresa’s explanation of the fashion show and direct answers to some of her detractors biggest questions. I think this is the best blog she has ever written. Why? Because its honest and real. You can feel the emotion dripping from it. I love who she brings up John and Penny and their past with Melissa. She alludes to Melissa’s misdeeds but never actually says it. She also insinuates that Melissa did something in her past, something a mom shouldn’t do, and she still does it. With rumors running rampant that Melissa and Joe Gorga allegedly do/did drugs, I am not too shocked. Melissa wanted this…she wanted fame and to be on TV and now she is…but at what price? I for one, cannot wait for the days when all of the Marco skeletons come out…just as Teresa predicts. In her Bravo.com blog, Teresa says: Continue reading

Reunion Sneak Peek: Rosie threatens Teresa!

25 Sep

Ok, this preview is disturbing. What started out as a fun show has turned into a dark and disgusting mess. In this clip from the three part reunion episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey, it appears as though everyone is at their breaking point. It ends with Rosie, shouting from backstage (why are siblings even there..ahem Marco sisters..ahem).

Check out this clip from People.com which features insults, Kathy Wakile’s unrecognizable face, a hysterical Teresa Giudice, a comforting Caroline Manzo, a seriously pissed off Melissa and an utterly horrible exchange between Joe and Joe.

http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20632954,00.html

This is absolutely heartbreaking to watch and 100% not entertainment. Again, nothing got to this point until we met Melissa. Just sayin’.

Top ten things we learned from the RHONJ finale

24 Sep

Honestly, I don’t even know where to begin this time. Its like a trainwreck, one you cannot look away from but feel kinda dirty for even seeing. We are watching this for entertainment, and I get that…but we are also watching the destruction of a family. A once close and proud family. Its sad. Its a shame. And it was all done for a buck. Buckle up bitches…its about to get pretty bumpy…

Top ten things we learned from the RHONJ finale:

10) There was 100% a set up. I just can’t figure out who was ultimately set up and who was the mastermind. I do know, from multiple sources AT THE SHOW that filming was for hours and hours and we only saw snippets. What they WANTED us to see. Its obvious that the producers decided long ago to make Teresa the villain this season. Sources told us that conversations were edited and snipped together to show what they wanted to convey: That Teresa set Melissa up. Case in point…when Pete Giudice congratulated Teresa, he said “Congrats, good job, I am proud of you, you held your own”. He was referring to the verbal assault Teresa experienced outside the fashion show. But this was edited in to look as though he was congratulating her on her set up. He was not.

9) Angelo admits on camera “Teresa and Kim wanna blow the whistle on Melissa”. Ok, I get it. This is pretty damning. I will be the first to admit that as well. And if I am wrong, I will say I am wrong…but here is why I think I am not, when I say that I don’t believe he was saying that. According to a source, his conversation with the woman was almost 15 minutes long. We saw 20 seconds. Is it not plausible that he was saying Kim and Teresa wanted to blow the whistle on Melissa, meaning expose her as a bitch, in a rhetorical way, something that may have been said months ago. He then took it upon himself, with others help obviously, to use this opportunity to out Melissa. If he was talking about Teresa and Kim disliking Melissa and wanting to out her, in a past tense, we would never know, because it was pieced together right in with him talking about Melissa dancing. Case in point: Rich Wakile said that he did not say that fish comment. He claims Bravo pieced it together and edited it in. So…which is it? Cameras don’t lie? Or camera can show what they want you to see?

8) Which is it…Angelo is a liar and Melissa was not a dancer…but its not conceivable to think he would lie about Teresa being behind this?

7) So outing someone for their past is horrible and wrong and sneaky? I think Danielle Staub would have a bone to pick with Caroline Manzo on that subject (who found the book written about Danielle and brought it out Season 1 for all to see).

6) Jacqueline Laurita is a shit-stirring drama queen. Jacqueline gets a text saying Teresa set this up..so naturally it must be true. Did this remind anyone else of a grade school game of telephone? She runs and tells Joe Gorga? Good friend! How about asking Teresa first. And sorry but Teresa did not accuse you of setting up Melissa. She accused you of setting HER up.

5) I am from New Jersey. I can say with 100% certainty that Lookers Gentleman’s club is NOT a bikini bar. Its a go-go bar. While the women cannot strip totally naked if alcohol is served, by NJ law, it does not and will not mean it doesn’t happen. They don’t have a back room for nothing… Melissa says she worked for 1 week as a bartender. Yet her lawyer sent pay stubs to All About the Real Housewives to prove she was “only a bartender”. These stubs show nearly a year of employment. Which is it Melissa? Can’t keep the lies straight?

4) Joe Gorga spoke inappropriately to Kim D. No doubt. Whether she was wrong or right or did this or not, he was not appropriate to her. Especially since he had no proof at that point as to who did what. Sources say he raised a hand to her, but it was edited out in the event of making the Gorgas look better. I cannot confirm this, but its what we hear…

3) Its one thing to be drunk at a night out in a bar with people of age. Another to be drunk at a children’s christening in the middle of the day. Just sayin’

2) Kathy is irrelevant. She came on the show to be a backup to Melissa so she wouldn’t be alone in her hatred to Teresa. But what does she offer? Cannolis? Oh, and Lauren Manzo is the devil’s spawn. Seriously, that girl is a miserable bitter excuse for a female. I hear she is such a super-douche at the reunion. Why is she even there? Why was she even at the fashion show? One minute she is a bitter angry bitch, the next she is a boring wet mop. Nice little combo of her parents, that one.

2a) Rich Wakile and his man boobs was not threatening or scary showing up to the fashion show. Not in the least.

1) RHONJ lost its sparkle. Its so dark. Where is the show about affluent women shopping with a little snark here and there? Why is it all about Teresa’s family? She was the one on the show. She did not sign up with family. The Manzos did. But you can bet the 5 siblings Caroline doesn’t speak to would never be well received on the show. I miss the show about over the top parties and paying for furniture in cash. I miss the laughs. I miss the friendships. I miss the housewives. I’ll end with pointing out that all of the above was gone as soon as Melissa and Kathy joined the show.

Teresa Giudice: “I am no actress!”

18 Sep

Teresa Giudice turned in her Bravo blog and as usual it has me scratching my head wondering how people can think she is evil. I really think this woman is misunderstood and the scapegoat for any and everything that goes wrong in the other Housewives lives. She explains the Posche Fashion show drama and says she is no actress:

“To all my Jewish friends, L’Shanah Tovah! The kids are off school for Rosh Hashanah, and we enjoyed a long weekend together. We all went to the Sons of Italy Italian Feast and Carnival in Tappan, New York. I signed books while Joe took the kids on the rides. He outlasted them all except Milania — she is like the Energizer Bunny! The kid is never tired! She tired us all out!

I see our visit made headlines again, and for such a ridiculous reason! Joe was playing with a little boy’s toy gun and I told him, “Put it down before someone takes a picture of you with it! I can just imagine that headline!” Surprise, surprise, that was exactly the headline, that Joe “pointed a gun” at me. He didn’t point it at me, but whatever. I guess I should embrace the publicity, but I don’t think I’ll ever get used to it. Ah Marone, what can you do?

My heart was racing all over again watching this week’s episode. I think you can see I was sincerely uncomfortable at this strange guy trying to talk to me about Melissa’s past. (We all know I’m no actress — that’s actually what finally got me fired from Celebrity Apprentice!) It was very weird because the guy Angelo didn’t really do anything terrible, he wasn’t rude or aggressive, so I couldn’t really say anything more than I did. I think he really did think I knew about her past — which I didn’t, I still don’t, and I, like the rest of America, don’t care! — and when he saw I was upset, he apologized right away. But I didn’t want anything to do with anyone talking about my family, so I left (and I was downstairs, not just around the corner! I couldn’t hear Angelo and Kim D. at all!). I even told Kim D. to shut the f— up! (Sorry, Kim.) The whole situation just felt weird, so I took myself out of it. I can’t keep track of all the people Melissa has pissed off in our town, but I am not going to be a part of it.

You did see my honest reaction to everything and I’m proud of how I handled it. I think I’ve learned a lot over the past few years — thanks in part to Posche Fashion shows! — and I kept it together, but rose above it. Again, thank you all for supporting me, for giving me words of encouragement, and for helping me grow over the past four seasons. I’m so thankful I don’t have to defend myself and work as hard as the other ladies do to try and convince the viewers of what “really” happened. You’re all smart, you can see for yourself.

The one thing that does still sadden and confuse me is why my cast members, especially my own family, were back then and still are so ready to believe I would “set Melissa up.” First of all, I don’t play like that. For better or worse, what you see with me is what you get. I don’t scheme and plot and try and twist people’s minds and opinions about things. I don’t bash people on Twitter, have my sisters and mothers and daughters pick fights with people on social media, I’m just not about that. You know who does that sort of thing. They always have and they always will. I yell and fight in person when I’m mad, but thankfully, that’s rare. The rest of the time, I parent, I work, I write, I cook… I’m busy, I’m happy, and I enjoy my life! I wish the other ‘Wives would spend half as much time taking care of their kids as they do getting into fights on Twitter. We’d all be so much better off, don’t you think?

Second, I have nothing to gain from exposing Melissa. She is my parent’s only daughter-in-law, she goes by our family name “Gorga.” Why would I want anything bad out there about a Gorga? She’s my only brother’s wife, the mother of my godson, and my daughter’s godmother. She may not have any family loyalty toward me, but I have it toward her and I always will.

Until the day of the fashion show, I had never heard of this Angelo guy or even Lookers. (Sorry, I don’t hang out in places like that and never worked in one. I worked at Macy’s!) Just a week after the show in a taped interview, Angelo said the same thing: that he never met me before and I had nothing to do with it. You can read the transcribed interview with Angelohere.

I’m just so over all of this backwards, made-up drama. (Whoever created the Alice in Wonderland picture with Andy as the Mad Hatter, I love love, love, it!) By this point last year, everyone in the cast knew that Melissa had definitely been in contact with Danielle and told her private things (lies, actually) about my family to try and purposefully and publicly bring me down. And it worked, since because of Melissa, Danielle knew just which buttons to push at the Season 2 Reunion. I reacted, flipped out, and almost flipped Andy. A terrible day I wish never happened. Thank you, Melissa!

When I found out — by Danielle outing Melissa on WWHL, not by Melissa owning and admitting it — I forgave her. I truly don’t believe she would forgive me for something that evil, but I did forgive her. I didn’t wait for a year to see how I would look on TV to forgive her. I did it right away. Yes, I wanted my family to be whole that bad!

What I don’t understand is how Caroline and Jacqueline, who had their own family buttons pushed by Danielle, buttons that ended up in legal cases and drama with their children(!), think it’s no big deal that Melissa was working with Danielle this whole time. I didn’t get it, but OK… But then to pretend to be so disgusted and upset with a possible/fake/not really “set-up”? What? How screwed up are their priorities exactly?

I’m not gonna lie, I don’t really see what the big deal is here. Someone Melissa used to work with said “hi” to her at a fashion show and then left. I don’t know what his intentions were, if he thought it was funny, but seriously, big f—ing deal. She used to work at a bar, he worked there too, maybe she danced, maybe she wore a tank top, maybe she only stopped by to empty the trash on her way home from church. Who knows, but again, big deal. The Angelo guy didn’t say anything bad to her, wasn’t mean or violent, didn’t have secret pictures to leak to the press, wasn’t involved in a legal case with her… the whole thing was a big fat nothing. The entire scandal is that maybe Melissa danced? I’m sorry, but after all the hype, it doesn’t even look like a set-up to me, more like a let-down. I have to say it again: big f—ing deal. Who cares if Melissa danced? As long as she doesn’t plan on opening a car wash and recruiting my girls to work there, I don’t care.

The only thing that made any of this a big deal is the fact that Melissa freaked out, ran into the bathroom, and right away called my brother and said she’d been “set up.” What? You’ll see my face next week when everyone immediately jumps on the “Melissa was set up” train. I’m so confused. First, because I don’t think the big incident was really that big a deal. I didn’t like to hear it or be put in the middle of it in a creepy, unexpected way, but it was no ambush. (And I think I know ambush!) The guy said, “Hi, remember me?” and LEFT.

But conveniently the other Housewives, the ones with the matching blogs every week, came to the same exact conclusion right away: Teresa set Melissa up! What, what, and what? And again: what? It doesn’t make sense for me to do, they had absolutely no proof, the guy himself denied I had anything to do with it, but the truth doesn’t matter to them. They went on Twitter to talk about how they think I set Melissa up, they went to the press, and still, a year later, they’re singing the same sad song. This is actually one instance when I’m so glad the cameras were there for the whole thing, because you see what I see. But the worst part is my brother, who wasn’t there, doesn’t see it. He believed their crazy story right away, still believes it I guess, and we haven’t spoken for a year. In the end, who got what they wanted? Not me…

I know the other women think I’m so dumb (and yet a manipulating mastermind at the same time?), but I do get why they all have to blame me for everything. Because my name on their lips is the only way they ever get attention. “Can you give us a horrible quote about Teresa?” “Yes, but only if you mention my “Happy Ending” desserts/”advice” book/new song/makeup/restaurant/yummy water too!” If that’s the price they are willing to pay to take a bite out of the big ol’ pie or whatever Richie calls it, then have at it. I’m just going to keep moving forward, and moving up. And because of all of you and my beautiful family, I have so much to move on to! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

And thank you all for coming out and meeting me this week! I had an amazing time meeting you all at the Italian Festival, and was so honored to be able to attend the Eric Trump Foundation charity invitational, and the Cantor Fitzgerald Charity Day 2012 for NephCure.”

I really feel bad for Teresa. I think it was quite obvious that she has nothing to do with this nonsense. I think if she did, she would have let Kim D and Angelo go on a bit more about what Melissa used to “do”. She is so right when she says the other ladies think she is both dumb and an evil mastermind at the same time.  I love how Melissa and Jac always wait for Teresa to turn in her blog first so they can “respond”.

EXCLUSIVE SCOOP! Guess who left their mic on?

17 Sep

Multiple sources are confirming that Angelo, the alleged ex-manager of Melissa Gorga in her supposed stripper days, left his mic on at the Posche Fashion show.  And next week, we will get to see the fall out of this. According to our source:

“The bald guy, as they call him, left his mic on. He totally forgot that it was on and went back to his group. He said some things that can be construed, and will be twisted to make it look like he was working with someone. I can’t say who the someone is, but put it this way: Some people will go nuts, others will FLIP!”

Uh-oh. This can turn out a few different ways…
