This is all just sad now–dark,and sad. It’s been a long, confusing two years but the dust has now settled. The audience is on the same page, and has obviously figured everything out. And what’s left is just a broken family.
Teresa has just recently put the “full” pieces together of this ugly season(s) and the means by which you entered. She should not be expected to move on yet, not for a while actually and you shouldn’t expect her to.
Now that you and your Joe are sitting in the aftermath, I’d love to know how you guys are feeling. You’re either:
a) very sad that the family is split and feeling horrifically guilty over the heartache and pain you have caused for acquiring fame and you’re both wondering now if it was worth it, or
b) you and Joe are loving life, loving your fame, and going to continue on your crusade that you had no ill-will intentions and that “Teresa just couldn’t be happy for your success”.
I happen to believe you knew what you were doing every step of the way. I believe you two knew your actions and words would cause Teresa great harm as you divided and conquered but you knew you needed to do that to “step into” her life behind the camera. But I can say I’m not sure how you’re feeling in your hearts now.
If it’s ‘a’, there is hope for you and your family, and you just got lost in the allure of fame. If it’s ‘b’, you are not good people and karma will handle you. I guess time will tell.

Melissa’s Bravo Blog
Melissa Gorga has no regrets about joining the cast of RHONJ because she is a textbook narcissist:
“She has a very fragile ego and is extremely insecure. She needs others to reflect her image back to her in order to feel alive. She is addicted to the spotlight and craves attention and adoration like a drug. She has an insatiable need to be recognized for her achievements, no matter how small or insignificant. She is grandiose and views herself as much more accomplished than she really is…basically, she is delusional and not in touch with reality. She believes other people worship her when, in actuality, most people see right through her. She feels nothing but contempt and jealousy towards others, especially those who may pose a threat to her. Anyone she perceives as a threat will be swiftly removed from her court. She views others as objects in her quest for dominance.”
Her husband Joe Gorga is a narcissist as well. He is a camera hog—at any cost. Melissa was not the only driving force behind all of the scheming and plotting to get a spot on the show: Joe Gorga had his eye on Teresa’s star as well. Melissa lets Joe keep the fighting going while standing back, pretending to be innocent. Fans only needs to watch the first episode of season 3 to know what this family of fame seekers, the Gorgas and Wakiles, is all about.
In the video above, Melissa Gorga says she doesn’t have any huge regrets about joining the cast of RHONJ, adding that if her children and her husband and her life at home were being affected, then she would be out.
Joe said how being on RHONJ has been “good and bad” and that next season will be “wild and fun” (Reality Aired, February 8, 2012).
Teresa said: “Being on the housewives is stressful….working with my family is something I’m not a fan of. Being on Celebrity Apprentice was a breath of fresh air. Season 4….this one, like, I have to say tops the cake….but very sad you know, yeah….an eye opener….when you think you know someone…there’s alot of people, they feel like when no one’s listening, they want to be heard.” (Associated Press, January 6, 2012)
