Melissa Gorga’s Fans Turn Against Her; Grand Conspiracy to Defame Teresa (29 Against 1); Jacqueline Laurita Rejects Teresa Giudice’s Apology (Updated 9/4/2013)
“Kim told me that she and Lysa expected to be on the show by next season. They told me they would be taking Teresa and Kathy’s place. So we should show our support by tweeting about them too.” – ExMarcoSistersFan, May 4, 2013, Faux Reality Entertainment
C’est la Vie: Potpourri
April 24, 2012
Today, in surprising news, the Marco Sisters Twitter fan site (@MarcoSistersFan) owner shut the site down, claiming that Melissa Gorga, sister in law of Teresa Giudice, has a double persona.
Melissa first became famous for joining the Real Housewives of New Jersey, where Teresa was already starring on, in an effort to defame and publicly humiliate Giudice.
The owner of the Twitter site acknowledged Melissa’s malicious motives in joining the show and also stated that she found the first episode to be “extremely disturbing.”
The twitter site owner also states that Melissa’s husband and Teresa’s brother, Joe, is a “vile man who will stop at nothing to bring his sister down unless he gets camera time.”
Season four of the series premiered Sunday to the Bravo network’s highest ratings, however many viewers were disappointed with the Giudice bash fest by all four other castmates, including both Melissa and Joe.
I believe that this is an interesting development for this family. I’m not surprised and will be happily awaiting for others to jump ship as the season and true motives and intentions continue to come forward.
From MarcoSistersFan on Twitter:
I am sorry to say that I will be closing down this [Twitter] account very shortly. After some time, I’ve become aware of Melissa Gorga’s double persona. She has proved to be a narcissist and has showed an extremely passive aggressive attitude. I also found Joe Gorga’s actions in the premiere episode [of season 4] to be extremely disturbing. This family will stop at nothing to bring Teresa down. Joe Gorga is a vile man who will stop at nothing to bring his sister down. Teresa has showed us viewers that she can rise above the pettiness.
Melissa came on the show with the intent to hurt, and that’s something I can no longer support. Her makeup artist should be reprimanded for talking ill of her sister-in-law.
Melissa Gorga, you came on the show to air out your dirty family laundry and did not care who got hurt on your path to “fame.” You’re a lousy singer. Your husband is a famewhore; he just wants to be made into a 6th housewife!
I am tweeting to let you all know that Melissa and Joe Gorga are not innocent. They try to portray themselves as such, but it is an ACT! Melissa Gorga and Joe Gorga are phonies. They want America to believe they are victims when in reality they are SCUM.
This season [season 4] will put more things into perspective for all you fans of the Gorgas! Team Teresa! Teresa Giudice, I am so sorry if I ever wrote anything negative about you. I see the truth now! You’re amazing, as a mother, sister, daughter, friend, etc. Don’t ever let anybody tell you otherwise! Shine on!
Caroline controls Jacqueline. It’s sick!
I once tweeted Jacqueline something in defense of Teresa, and I was immediately DM’ed by the Marco sisters asking to delete my tweets because Jac was their friend. They never once asked me to delete anything negative I wrote about Teresa!
RHWGOSSIP, give it a rest, and take your head out of the Gorga’s ass! We see the truth! RHWGOSSIP, you would love the world to believe that everyone HATES Teresa, but the truth I see is that she clearly has a bigger fan-base than you can fathom!
Yes, I did lie about @bino989 sending me DMs. I’m sorry. I was told that you and that blogger site were harassing the Marco sisters! I was used as a shield to protect them!
Lysa Simpson, why don’t you tell everyone how you had no problem letting me speak in defense of you guys and how you had no problem if I threw Teresa under the bus. Lysa believes that Bino and AlllAboutTRH are the ones who were starting the most mess for them.
I am not proud of my actions. I was just merely a fan in the beginning trying to protect those I was a fan of. I’m glad I realized what a mistake that was.
Note: MarcoSistersFan is now ExMarcoSistersFan on Twitter.
Melissa Gorga and Joe Gorga are phonies. They want America to believe they are the victims when in reality they are SCUM

UPDATE on 4/27/2012: MarcoSistersFan shutdown her Twitter account in disgust over Melissa Gorga and her sisters’ behavior. The fan site owner then needed a break from all of this nastiness on Twitter, so she took a hiatus to regain composure. The Marco Sisters then DM’d her to DELETE her account [direct messages here]! This was the breaking point and when she decided to reveal the truth about these sisters.
There seems to be one common denominator which which permeates all Teresa’s failed relationships. Teresa and Joe were close. Then Melissa entered the picture. Kathy and Teresa were close. Enter Melissa. Jacqueline, Caroline and Teresa were close. Enter Melissa. Caroline has said that her problems with Teresa stem from more than the cookbook. She has alluded to “rumors” that got back to her. There didn’t seem to be any rumors until season three. Enter Melissa. If I were the Church Lady I’d say, could it be Satan? But, since I’m not, I’ll just say, could it be Melissa? [Njonlooker, AllAboutTRH.com, April 26, 2012]
[In season 2]Melissa AND Joe wanted to come on to surprise Teresa and be on-camera friends with Danielle. I wish that did happen because maybe Caroline and Jacqueline would not be believing all of Melissa’s lies like you will see in season 4… Melissa knows how to lie and get what she wants, but the truth will come out… Melissa is a complete fake. She has tried to get on the show; it never happened until she stalked Danielle and made a video WITH Joe (nice brother) saying they will ‘destroy Teresa’. Yet, they call Teresa garbage for working to support her family and keep a beautiful roof over her family’s head… Like Danielle can confirm, Mel was dying to film scenes with her similar to the ones she does with her sisters and Kathy, where she fabricates lies and bitches about Tre… Joey G and Melissa filmed a tape where they, in the style of the Sopranos, promised Bravo execs they would ‘expose’ and ‘destroy’ Teresa. They also guaranteed to give Tre what she has given them ‘…their whole life’. [Insider Commenting at Reality Tea, August and September 2011]
Melissa’s strategy this season was to play victim during filming. She is just a better ‘actress’ than some of the other girls. She really is playing the game of the ‘victim.’ Melissa is very happy the way things turned out. She couldn’t wait to get in the group and turn them all against Teresa. [Inside Source at Reality Tea, May 6, 2012]
I can only imagine what this season’s reunion will be like. Teresa, please don’t feel you have to explain yourself any more, because it’s obvious that nothing you say is good enough for these women. They don’t like you, for whatever reason, and it’s time to move on. If you can stay on the show and be happy knowing that the rest of the cast doesn’t like you, then PLEASE stay, because you have a lot of fans. However, if it’s too painful, then it’s time to move on. You’ve reached out and done what you could and have been slapped in the face for it. Time to take a page out of everyone else’s book—smile in their faces then rip them in your talking head interviews. Don’t forget to roll your eyes and make sarcastic wisecracks too, ala Mama Manzo. [cammierari, AllAboutTRH.com, April 28, 2012]
When Danielle brought up Melissa at the reunion, Teresa figured out that it was Melissa and Kathy who were leaking her private information to tabloids and online. Melissa was making money off of Teresa! So why would she turn around and tell Melissa, Joe and Kathy ANYTHING about herself? So THEY can profit off of it? At least this way [selling her apologies to In Touch], Teresa can ensure the only one profiting off her misfortune is Teresa and her children. They are just angry they can’t make money off her anymore. [Say What??, AllAboutTRH.com, May 3, 2012]
If Teresa only apologized in private then the other four would lie and say it never happened. Now her sincere apologies in the blog and magazine are public record. Of course, now the other four are saying it wasn’t the right kind of apology, with, of course, means only they can decide what a “real” apology should contain. Caroline seems to think that Teresa is trying to rehabilitate her image, when it is Caroline and friends who have taken a major hit. Move on Teresa, you did good. [villadeste, AllAboutTRH.com, April 28, 2012]
Grand Conspiracy to Defame Teresa (29 Against 1)
The Marco sisters and their cronies will not be happy until Teresa is no longer on RHONJ, her husband is in jail, she is broke, and her four children are homeless. It was Melissa and her evil sisters who instigated this whole thing that turned the show into such a train wreck. Theirs is a well-planned conspiracy to ruin Teresa’s reality career so that Melissa can have the spotlight along with her husband and sisters. Caroline signed on to the plan because she wants Teresa off the show just as bad as Melissa. Jacqueline is a sucker and fell for the lies being fed to her by the Marcos.
So in this grand conspiracy to defame Teresa, we have the following, lead by the Marco sisters, working to bring Teresa down (28 against 1):
Joe Gorga (blood relative of Teresa and her children who told her that “you need to fall”)
Kathy Wakile (blood relative of Teresa and her children)
Rosie Pierri (blood relative of Teresa and her children
The Wakile Children (blood relatives of Teresa and her children)
Donna Marco (Melissa’s mother)
Lysa Simpson (Melissa’s sister)
Kim Pirrella (Melissa’s sister)
Joe Pirrella (Kim’s husband)
Lou Marco Orlick (Melissa’s aunt)
George Miguel Costa (Melissa’s makeup artist)
Tara Bogota (Melissa’s cousin)
Bonnie Grippe (Jacqueline’s mother)
Sheila Marino-Giudice (Teresa’s SIL who finally came to her senses and left the dark side to support Teresa)
Jacqueline Laurita Conspires with the Marco Sisters and Rejects Teresa Guidice’s Apology
“I once tweeted Jacqueline something in defense of Teresa, and I was immediately DM’ed by the Marco sisters asking to delete my tweets because Jac was their friend. They never once asked me to delete anything negative I wrote about Teresa!” – MarcoSistersFan, April 25, 2012
“@JacLaurita You look beautiful!” – Donna Marco (Melissa’s mother), April 25, 2012
Jacqueline and Teresa’s Tweets on April 25, 2012:
Jacqueline conspired with the Marcos (which includes Joe Gorga) and the Lauritas/Manzos (the head of the snake being Caroline) to destroy Teresa’s well being and livelihood. Jacqueline shared with her conspirators private discussions that she had with Teresa when they were friends. She is a backstabber and the most disloyal of friends. She ‘direct messages’ people on Twitter with negative comments about Teresa and then blocks them so that can’t reply. Jacqueline has been brainwashed by the Marco sisters and Caroline Manzo. She is not her own person. All of these housewives and their husbands, their children and their other relatives and friends ganged up on Teresa and talked trash about her. And SHE apologizes and they refuse to accept her apology? Caroline, Jacqueline, Melissa, Kathy, etc. need to step back and apologize for their behavior toward Teresa.
@WendyWilliams YES. Don Caro, Kathy, Jac, Joey, Rich, Lauren, Chris, Albie, and the former Lookers employee have NEVER said sorry to Teresa

“Teresa put out an article that I text her and threatened to release those pictures and I didn’t! I wanted to prove that. Teresa is scum!”
“What until u hear the rest.There is much more but I’m letting it all unravel little by little all on it’s own.No more talk about it!”
“Another disgusting display of Teresas lies. Keep hanging yourself!Tell every1 the plan2file4bankruptcy#2@how u laugh At beating the system!”
“Teresa,keep spending all the money u do &making profit from people/ fake stories u sell.It will catch up to u.U never stopped spending.”

JACQUELINE LAURITA PLEASE READ:
“A real friend is someone who tries to pick you up when you’ve fallen; and if they can’t pick you up, they lay down right beside you.”
This quote explains why people are so disgusted by your behavior toward Teresa. From your continuous nasty tweets about Tre, you abrupt lovefest with Mego (especially since only a few weeks ago you claimed not to really hang out or speak to her much) and your vicious blogs and involvement with people who have hurt Teresa (Tom Murro and Kim G)…..you continue to showcase the dark side of yourself. Loyalty is not even in your vocabulary.
KV on 7 May, 2012 at 1:34 am said at Reality Tea:
Teresa appears to take a lot of responsibility for her husband’s actions and feels embarrassed as a result of them. This can make reaching out for help a very difficult process.
I feel angry on Tre’s behalf that the people who are trying to be there for her take it so personally that she is having a hard time and can’t talk about it. Sometimes ‘being there’ means that you patiently and lovingly wait for a moment that may never come. ‘Being there’ means that you know you were present and supportive, sometimes that means you don’t ever get a chance to do anything. The NEED to do something is more for one’s own ego than it is in support of the person who is hurting – it is to say here is an action that I performed that makes me a good person. That validation needs to just come from within, not by being of service to another person, so that you can brag about it. Also, ‘being there’ means that you don’t hold against someone when they didn’t give you the ‘type’ of chance you wanted to ‘do something’. You’re there every time, showing support and sitting on the sidelines until they ask, trying to make their life easier by being EASY to get along with!
Tre is obviously feeling out of control. By forcing her to talk, and taking over, I don’t think it is helping her. Maybe the way she can feel less anxious and in control is to keep it to herself. Obviously her reputation means a lot to her, and she has a misguided belief that by being quiet that she is somehow protecting it. What does it matter to those who love her that its not working, if it makes her feel in control than so be it.

Jacqueline, no matter how may times Theresa apologizes it ‘s never good enough, or wasn’t said with the right tone or conviction or with enough feeling etc: for you, Caroline, Kathy or Melissa. You all were talking about her before your gathering at your house. I don’t know why you invited her because it was clearly obvious the wolf pack was just waiting to be rude & jump on her. It was definitely a hostile environment. It was your house, you were the host, your suppose to set the tone & you allowed them to be rude to your guest. Caroline is the worst & I know she is your family member but she has gotten so nasty. You all seem to follow her lead blindly. You are much nicer when you aren’t around Caroline. It’s too bad your & Teresa’s friendship is no more because I feel she was a good friend to you, even with all her family’s problems. I feel Caroline would be happiest if she could turn everyone against Theresa, she seems to be on a mission to do so. Everyone has some kind of problem whether they admit it or not but that doesn’t give anyone the right to gang up & kick them when they are down like the wolf pack seems to get some sort of sick pleasure from. At least when Theresa has something to say she will say it to your face & she doesn’t need 3 or 4 other people supporting her from the side lines. Again, why do you continue to invite her when everyone is so hostile toward her? Free entertainment for you all? Not nice.

Whatever happens, I hope Bravo never again has siblings involved with Housewives.
Bringing family on to bully and mock someone when they are in that low of a situation is wrong. It hit a nerve with people. It’s the idea that family sticks together when the going gets tough. What happened on that reunion wasn’t fair. All the housewives plus Andy against Teresa. Once again it hit a nerve because no one likes a bully. Make that bullies–four on stage and one home on twitter. Teresa was so outnumbered, and two were family.
Simply put: as human beings we need for there to be a certain amount of kindness and fairness in the world. It gives us hope. So even though I know that it is tv and could very well not even be real, it still hits a nerve. Especially for this North Jersey Italian woman. I’m just really glad my family doesn’t act like that.

Let’s see….Jacqueline TWEETS….not privately texts or calls Teresa to have her call or come over. Then when Teresa takes the bait (because after all Jax has her audience now…Twitter), Jacqueline proceeds to dish out their private conversation. Now Jax is calling out Teresa for PR stunt? lol.
It’s funny how these ladies spent their entire PR for the new season publically bashing Teresa left and right….yet she publically and on camera apologizes and they call her’s a PR stunt. What the hell was their’s?
These women act like they were the only ones hurt. They refuse to validate and acknowledge what they did to hurt Teresa….yet want her to go down and kiss their feet for an apology. Teresa, do like Dina does…..and stay the HELL away from Jax and Caroline.

Jac just wrote a whole blog bashing Teresa. We have the entire season left where you know Jac and the rest of the gangbashers are going to make Teresa the scapegoat for all that is wrong with the world.
How can Teresa watch and listen to all of their words and just forgive? Add to the whole situation, Ashlee, Jac’s mom that bashes Teresa on Twitter, the former Lookers employee and Mr PW Joey Marco, and the entire Manzos in her ear all the time telling her how terrible Teresa is.
Teresa needs to do exactly what Dina did, walk away, and for the same reason, that these people are all about the show.

Jacqueline is a snake in the grass and not to be trusted. She did not hesitate on jumping ship on her 10-year friendship to go hang with the likes of, well, everyone and anyone who spewed venom and secrets about Teresa. Eww and Mel’s sisters who are next in line BEGGGGGGGGING and screaming for attention to get a permanent spot on this show. I think they have all been trying to push Teresa out for themselves to get on the show. They are crazy famewhores like Mel and Joe, if not worse.
This whole Teresa thing is so out of control, and they wanted it that way — doing whatever it takes so they can have who they want on the show. I feel THEY all betrayed her on purpose and conspired (obvious if you read their blogs) to push her out. They all hang together at every event — Gorgas ,Wakiles, Manzos and the CrackoSisters.

I’m beginning to worry that maybe something is seriously wrong with Jac, either mentally or emotionally…I mean, how can someone be THIS CRAZY and be “normal”? She pumps out a 13-page blog of drivel, where she actually criticizes someone’s (Teresa’s) PARENTING! If we hadn’t all seen the product of HER parenting, maybe this wouldn’t be quite so insane, but…we have, so it is!
NOW she publicly scoffs at someone who she says she is trying to take baby steps back towards friendship? I mean…I don’t remember any girl being this cruel even back in high school! Is she this immature or is she sick?
Hithere on April 25, 2012 at 5:50 pm said on AllAboutTRH.com:
I do believe Jac thought it thru (and got a text from dumpy Caroline) and decided to can the reconciliation AND to go back to being a drama queen. So sad…I was one of the folks who was hoping to see her and Teresa get back together…now I would caution Teresa to stay far away from Jac. Jac is unstable and probably has a problem with alcohol. Jac is a big time loose cannon, and she proved that today. You can’t believe one thing that comes out of her mouth.
Nicole on April 25, 2012 at 7:37 pm said on AllAboutTRH.com:
The fact that Jacqueline continues to make digs at Teresa even after they agreed to take “baby steps” speaks volumes of her.
LifeIsGood on April 30, 2012 at 5:22 pm said on AllAboutTRH.com
It’s hard to pick a starting point for this one!
For someone who has a lot of thoughts on the anatomy of an apology, Jac can’t recognize when she owes one (note to Jac: “we were both wrong” does not qualify). I’ve never been called “scum” by someone I thought was a friend.
I just wish she would be honest with herself and admit that she really doesn’t want a friendship with T – It’s clear to anyone that she does not like T all that much. It’s not a crime to end a friendship! I would respect her more if she would just write “T is a selfish, nasty, stupid woman and a bad mother, friend and sister.” This sums up everything she has written and tweeted in the past months. But because she doesn’t have the balls to say it directly, we have to suffer her 1,393,030 word blogs – all of which boil down to the 14-word sentence I wrote above.
I made an eye-roll that would have made Kathy proud when I read this sentence: “Gia has become a little mommy. She’s growing up so fast. She helps clean the house and tend to the kids. It’s cute to see her in action.”
TRANSLATION: T is foisting her motherly duties onto her 10-year old daughter.
I did not watch the show (I’m abstaining) so I will retract my translation if there was a scene with Gia scrubbing floors and changing diapers – but I’ll bet a few bucks that it was nothing like that.
Even if Teresa decides to rekindle he friendship with Jac – I sure hope she is smart enough to keep her guard up around her for a very long time.
Calzoned on April 30, 2012 at 5:45 pm said on AllAboutTRH.com
Last week, Jacqueline took a shot at Milania in her blog, and this week was Gia’s turn. I’ll say it again; if she has problems with Teresa, take it up with Teresa — leave those kids alone! It speaks volumes for Jacqueline — as a woman and a mother — to be so passive aggressive to mention such young kids at all.
Nicole on April 30, 2012 at 6:53 pm said on AllAboutTRH.com:
FYI Jacqueline, Teresa’s comments in the cookbook were not malicious compared to the things that her “friends” and family were saying about her behind her back BEFORE the cookbook every came out.
Once again, they were jokes, albeit lame ones. Teresa said sorry if anyone’s feelings got hurt, but what does she need to own? Is it really her fault that no one has a sense of humor when they’re the butt of the joke, but it’s funny and a joke when Teresa is the butt of the joke? Please.
HWAddict on April 30, 2012 at 7:24 pm said on AllAboutTRH.com:
Memo to Jac: Teresa has taken the high road and it is you who rolls in the gutter. You have one hell of a nerve to tell Teresa you are proud of her for apologizing to you. You have been a lousy friend by betraying confidences on social media. Also, while you are at home drinking, Teresa is out working to get her family back on track financially.

Jac takes no responsibility for her actions and is still trying to interfere in Teresa’s family disputes, telling her how she should feel and act. And she is still blaming Teresa for everything and thinks she and the others are right. Here are some excerpts from this week’s blog that prove that:
I was happy to hear that she was happy, doing well, and appeared to have finally seen the light.
I don’t think that she will ever understand other people’s emotions or what a true apology is all about.
I was glad when Teresa took my advice to apologize to her family and friends about her cookbook, although she never understood that she did anything wrong or admitted to how it could have hurt anybody. She just said the words with no accountability. Clearly she meant some malice in her book.
Nobody was really talking about Teresa in a negative way before she got there.
Once again, I’m always looking at both sides. I see everyone hurting, not just Teresa. If I could have ended their pain, I would have tried anything at that point to help them find resolve.
I am very fair. I will say that I have always admired Teresa’s ability to keep her head up with a smile on her face and persevere even during the roughest times in her life. Everything is always “fine” with her. Sometimes I wished that she would lean on her friends a little more than she did. That is what creates a special bond between friends. You allow each other to be there along with you, to help you through the difficult times.
cammierari on April 30, 2012 at 10:56 pm said on AllAboutTRH.com:
The last one [comment above] is the funniest thing to me. Jac is mad that Teresa didn’t lean on her as a friend for support. It looks to me like it’s a good thing she didn’t, since Jac has spilled every secret or bad thing Tre confided in Jac about her sister in law!! THANK GOD she didn’t tell her more! I mean…what absolute gall to say that you’re pissed that someone didn’t spill their guts to you, when we KNOW she did because you’ve used that against Teresa! You can’t now say you’re mad that she didn’t tell you MORE you idiot!! Good luck having any friends now Jacqueline. You’ve proven 3 times now (Danielle, Kim G, and Teresa) that you don’t know the meaning of the word friend.
Nicole on April 28, 2012 at 4:06 pm said on AllAboutTRH.com:
And I suppose it’s okay for Caroline, Jac, Melissa, Kathy, and their husbands to say what they want and then call it a joke? Teresa’s comments and “jokes” are nowhere near as hurting as the things that the others have said about her. They used her as a punchline in their jokes throughout season 3. Every one of them can dish it, say mean things and call it a joke, but when it’s thrown back in their face they cry foul.
The fact of the matter is Melissa, Kathy, Joey and Richie came onto the show with the sole purpose of furthering THEIR careers by bashing Teresa and airing their family’s dirty laundry for a quick buck. She doesn’t expect everyone to “back her up” but she did expect her friends (as does anyone else) to back her up when her family came on the show to bash her, humiliate her and publicly embarrass her.
It’s funny isn’t how none of them have a storyline that doesn’t involve Teresa and in every one of their interviews all they talk about is TERESA. It’s also funny how everyone else who’s met Teresa loves her and has nothing but good things to say about her while the only 4 people hating on her are her cast mates who are far less successful than Teresa. Sure, they were all successful before the show, but Teresa outshone them all. She has more deals, endorsements, etc… than all of them combined. Meanwhile, Caroline has had failing businesses left and right (radio show, her “purse” line, cookbooks, advice column, etc..), Melissa is lip-syncing at low end bars because no one in the REAL music industry wants to book her, Kathy has her dessert wine that no one even knows about and Jacqueline tweets 24/7 about nonsense. So yeah, their careers are REALLY successful. Not.
Katherine D. on April 28, 2012 at 4:06 pm said on AllAboutTRH.com:
I think they have made Teresa wacko – seriously speaking, her family can on a reality show to air their family’s dirty laundry for the world to see – Teresa was not for this. I do not blame her for going a bit crazy. Did you see the christening – even if she was fake and went to kiss and congratulate Melissa and Joe and she did it only for the cameras, well, I don’t blame her – she didn’t want the world to see her family issues, so she covered it up by making it look like everything is fine and dandy. But nooooooooooooooooooooooo, monkey face Gorga had to make a scene by slamming the table and showing the world that Feresa was fake by coming over to say congrats and that her slow dancing with the baby and Joe Giudice was all for show – um yeah – if the cameras weren’t rolling I’m sure all that wouldn’t have gone down. Bbut since there were cameras and it was going to be aired on Bravo, they (Teresa and crew) didn’t want the world (and rightfully so) to see they have problems.
Apparently Melissa and Kathy deserved to also have their chance to success, or however caroline manzo explained it. Melissa did not need the fame and money given the lifestyle she leads. Of course, on one side everyone is entitled to fame and fortune – but not at the expense of breaking apart your family.

Whether Teresa got paid or not for the interview [where she apologized to all the housewives], whether she did it in a magazine or sent each one of the hearthless housewives an I’m-sorry-letter, the point is that she swallowed her pride and apologized in front of the world – and, lets face it, I really do think Teresa misses her friendship with Jac and she is very hurt of their falling out. People have to step back and just let that sink when they are questioning whether or not Teresa was sincere.

Caroline, Jacqueline, Kathy and Melissa get paid a whole lot more by Bravo to trash Teresa in every scene than the rags pay Teresa to apologize to them. So, what’s their point?

Did anyone notice on the reunion 3 Andy never questioned any of the ladies about anything. Only Teresa and what she did. No one called Mellissa out on being so fake and twisting words around. She lied and said that Teresa felt like Rich wanted her sexually in front of Kathy/Richie daughter – such a disgrace on her. Who would say that in front of a child? Andy never said anything about the Manzo’s talking about Teresa’s family all the time. The reunion was not even worth watching.

I watched the s3 reunion prior to s4 starting and Andy Cohen really pissed me off!! He always expects Teresa to reveal all while the other ladies sit back in all their self righteous glory as if they have nothing to hide!! I’m so tired of Teresa explaining herself when she owes them nothing!!

This show has become almost unwatchable. I have a feeling that after the Teresa/Melissa fight next week I’m not going to be able to watch anymore. Teresa has given these bitches everything they want – an apology both public and private, group and individual. The only person who was even mentioned by name in the book was Caroline who has no right to be upset seeing how her own children slam Teresa ON CAMERA left and right while she says nothing to them (but that’s okay). And yet Teresa’s multiple apologies are not good enough for them?
I had posted a similar comment in another thread but I want you guys to see it because it is KILLING me. Did anyone read Jacqueline’s blog from last week? She confirms in it that she and Caroline are jealous of Teresa’s cookbook success. I don’t think she even realizes that she said it. She mentions that there had been “talk” of the Manzo/Lauritas doing a family cookbook “since day one”. I don’t know what “day one” means but that’s what she is claiming. But here is where Jacqueline obviously states that there is jealousy going on:
“When she got to work and actually did what my family had only talked about, I thought, ‘Good for her.’ And I was very proud of her. I think the problem was that Teresa wanted to be the ONLY authentic Italian cook, and she wanted to make sure that she kept that title.”
Interesting choice of words, Jac. “Actually did what my family had only talked about”. As far as being the ONLY authentic Italian cook, she’s referring to Teresa’s joke about Caroline being 1/16 Italian. Basically, she is saying that Teresa put that in her book to make readers think that Caroline’s cooking is not real Italian food JUST IN CASE she ever publishes a cookbook to discredit her. Caroline doesn’t even have a cookbook because nobody would publish it! So what is Jacqueline even talking about? Is this what all the big fuss is over? Is this why she is demanding the apology? Because she’s pissed that Teresa’s book got picked up and hers didn’t? They are mad because Teresa is more marketable than they are and receiving more opportunities as a result. She actually came out and said it.
Jacqueline must have been drinking wine again when she wrote that blog because she doesn’t realize that she revealed that little tidbit. That “we are secretly jealous that Teresa’s cookbook got picked up and ours didn’t so we’re going to create fake scenarios where we think she’s trying to discredit our heritage” gem. OOPS, JACQUELINE!!

She’s also kind of trying to imply that Teresa stole their idea to do a family cookbook. When in reality, NOBODY would publish Caroline’s book while publishers couldn’t wait to get their hands on Teresa’s! The truth is that Teresa is popular, people know her, recognize her, relate to her and LIKE her. She’s got star power. Caroline and Jacqueline do not and the only way they can keep themselves in the news is by holding Teresa’s name in their mouths. And that makes them furious.
VIRGINIA NATIVE on May 7, 2012 said on Jacqueline’s Bravo Blog:
Last night on WWHL Joe Gorga said that they’ve had this kind of relationship for years. Sounds like the show just speed up the nasty. This is years of Melissa, Teresa , and both Joe’s contributing to this situation. Similiar to Ashley and you or Caroline and Dina. Why is these relationship different then Joe/Teresa? It’s not but you can see someone else’s crazy much clearer than your own. Caroline should use all those words of wisdom to mend her relationship with her sister. Right now she looks like a hypocrite. You seem to be on the mend with Ashley but look how long it took you two. This is years of hurt, pain, blame, and resentment that the Gorgas need to overcome. You can’t say it’s over and all it goes away. If that was the case you and Ashley would had resolved your issues years ago.

When I think of Jacqueline few things come to my mind:
Jacqueline was friends with Danielle and defended her not so much because of Danielle but because it was a psycological FU to Caroline and Dina. Jacqueline probably is the person who gave Danielle the heads up about Lexy’s afidavit to film on the show. Jacqueline is the one who goes back and forth like a spy telling Teresa’s enemies – Manzos, Wakiles and Gorgas – every word she says. Jacqueline is also that person that has twitter rants every other week while drunk. Jacqueline is who read Gia not only a book, but two, and then refused to take responsibility. Jacqueline is a gossiper and backstabber, completely rambling and delusional, who can’t even acknowledge the fact that Teresa can drag her through the mud talking about her own bankrupcy but chooses not to. Jacqueline wants and needs all viewers to be aware of every detail of Teresa’s personal, financial and emotional mistakes while failing to acknowledge any of her own shortcomings. Teresa can get so down and dirty with Jacqueline, from her finances to that way she dealt with Ashley, yet she hasn’t done so. Jacqueline, the reason why I don’t like you is not because of Teresa, is because of your childish behavior, you need to grow up!
