Melissa Gorga Buys Facebook Fans and Twitter Followers; Melissa’s Facade Slips in Her Season 4 Episode 17 Bravo Blog and You See Her for Who She Really Is (Updated 8/30/12)

“Something definitely fishy is going on concerning her FB fanpage because she suddenly appeared as my latest “like” & I have never even visited the page. I ended up reporting the page because it’s really trashy & beyond tacky to have some sort of “system” randomly capture “likes” for your fanpage.” – MrIncredible, August 31, 2012, Fame-Whorgas

Melissa Gorga’s Facebook Fans:

~50,000 10-30-11 (after season 3 ended)
~85,000 4-30-12 (before season 4 premiered)
120,000 8-25-12 (steady increase of about 2,000 per week during season 4 airing)
198,000 8-27-12 9:30 PM EST (sudden burst of new fans compared to 2-3 days before)
206,000 8-27-12 11 PM EST (+8,000 in less than two hours)
212,596 8-27-12 11:30 PM EST (+6,500 in 30 minutes)
215,766 8-28-12 12:20 AM EST (+5,000 in less than an hour)
221,330 8-28-12 1:15 AM EST (+5,500 in an hour)
226,883 8-28-12 2:00 AM EST (+5,500 in 45 minutes)
229,886 8-28-12 2:34 AM EST (+3,000 in 30 minutes)
256,407 8-28-12 1:51 PM EST (+26,500 in 11 hours, about 2,400 per hour)
And still counting.

Over the past 9 months, Melissa’s Facebook fans have increased steadily by about 2,000 per week, so a sudden jump in one day of 130,000+ (and still counting) is very, very suspicious. The only explanation would be that she is buying fans and her fan adder program went amok. More fans were added in one day than were added over the past two years. Since 8-27-12, her page has not been loading properly because all these new ‘likes’ are being added (and no one is ‘talking about this’ while it’s happening), so something is definitely up (a program must be adding them and hanging up her page so that no one can be shown ‘talking about this’ until the program stops or there is a lull).

Buying Their Way to Twitter Fame (Excerpt Below):

That friend who brags about having 1,000, even 100,000 Twitter followers may not have earned them through hard work and social networking; he may have simply bought them on the black market. And it’s not just ego-driven blogger types. Celebrities, politicians, start-ups, aspiring rock stars, reality show hopefuls — anyone who might benefit from having a larger social media footprint — are known to have bought large blocks of Twitter followers. The practice is surprisingly easy. A Google search for “buy Twitter followers”turns up dozens of Web sites.

“And it’s so cheap, too”… 250,000 for $2,500, or a penny each. One site, Fiverr, an online classified for cheap marketing services, has several ads offering 1,000 Twitter followers for $5.

Having fake followers, it is important to note, does not necessarily mean that they were purchased. Unlike Facebook friends, Twitter does not require users to approve followers. In other words, anyone can follow you on Twitter, whether it’s your mother or a spammer.

Twitter followers are sold in two ways:  “Targeted” followers, as they are known in the industry, are harvested using software that seeks out Twitter users with similar interests and follows them, betting that many will return the favor. “Generated” followers are from Twitter accounts that are either inactive or created by spamming computers — often referred to as “bots.”

Buyers and sellers see nothing wrong with it. “Buying followers generated by bots is against Twitter’s terms and frowned upon by the public,” Mr. Mitchell said. “However, it is perfectly legal.”

The practice has become so widespread that StatusPeople, a social media management company in London, released a Web tool last month called the Fake Follower Check that it says can ascertain how many fake followers you and your friends have.

– New York Times, August 22, 2012

She (and her husband) also bought Twitter followers (see chart here). Joe Gorga steadily gained exactly 101 followers a day through Feb., then it dropped to exactly 50 followers a day until April, then he gained exactly 261 followers a day for a few weeks.

Kathy Wakile buys them too. Kathy Wakile gained exactly 855 new Twitter followers a day in Feb. and March, then dropped to exactly 183 Twitter followers a day in April (in other words, she was doing WAY better before the new season of the Real Housewives of NJ started!) Someone also mentioned to me on Twitter that Kathy’s Red Velvet Cosmo account had 300 followers then randomly gained 17,000 followers, then dropped to 13,000 followers (large drops in followers appear to be common when you buy followers, Twitter must “purge” obvious “bots.”)

Melissa took the photo above when she, Joe and their kids celebrated his birthday with his parents on August 22, 2012 (there is a photo below of her from the same party). Obviously, she and Joe and their kids spend time with Joe’s parents as evidenced by the photos taken just five days before she wrote her scathing blog about Teresa (Melissa is the sister-in-law and daughter-in-law from hell that Caroline Manzo deserves, not Teresa and her parents). In Melissa’s August 27, 2012, Bravo blog she said:

“I will say I got a sick feeling in my stomach when Caroline said she’s been in the car with Teresa and heard Teresa bashing Joe and me to her mother. This is nothing we didn’t know already, but to hear about it is just sad. Joe suffers all the time because of the wall Teresa tries to put up between him and his parents. Nothing hurts him more. When they are upset for no reason at all, my kids don’t get to see their only grandfather. I think I understand why she lied and tried to poison everyone’s minds against us, but why his own parents?”

“I suggest Tree speak to MeGo in Italian at reunion and then ask Don what she just said… when she can’t say, say: ‘So when was this phone conversation with my off the boat momma that you overheard me calling her a stripper? Please tell me the words I used to villainize my brother to my momma? And just because you can be swayed by your children to think one kid is an a-hole over another don’t mean my momma rolls that way, so kindly keep that trash to yourself and your family and don’t for one minute suggest that momma’s parenting skills are anything CLOSE to yours’.” – madepiley, August 28, 2012, StoopidHousewives

“My question is: when was the last time Caroline was in a car with Teresa? It’s been obvious for sometime now that Caroline does not like Teresa, so why would she put herself in a car with her? IF Teresa did say nasty things about you, it was how long ago. It looked as if you and Teresa had kind of put the past behind you. Please don’t drag it back out again. Especially because of something Caroline says.  It’s obvious that she is miserable.” – DebbieD37, August 29, 2012, Melissa’s Bravo Blog

In Melissa’s season 4 episode 17 Bravo blog, ‘Character Assassination’, she defends Caroline’s verbal assault on Teresa and accepts whatever Caroline claims to be the truth about Teresa. She has finally returned to the real Melissa from her very first Bravo blog, where she showed her true colors. On August 26, 2012, Melissa also tweeted the following regarding what Caroline claims Teresa said about her:

“Not gonna lie. Hate knowing she said those things about me. All which are false.”

Here is her blog published on August 27, 2012:

“Another crazy episode. I think you could tell by my face that I’m just so over all the fighting and craziness. I really can’t take it anymore.

“I think Kathy was just trying to explain to Teresa that the Manzos and Lauritas are really good people, and that she should try harder to fix things with Caroline. I told Kathy that I wished she didn’t say anything, because at this point it is clear that Caroline does not have to deal with Teresa. She is not her family, and luckily she can walk away. Caroline is not a fake person and she tells you exactly how she feels. It’s very obvious how she feels about Teresa and why she feels that way. She is very happy with her family, so sometimes it’s just better to get someone poisonous out of your life. I think that’s exactly what Caroline is doing and who could blame her?

“I will say I got a sick feeling in my stomach when Caroline said she’s been in the car with Teresa and heard Teresa bashing Joe and me to her mother. This is nothing we didn’t know already, but to hear about it is just sad. Joe suffers all the time because of the wall Teresa tries to put up between him and his parents. Nothing hurts him more. When they are upset for no reason at all, my kids don’t get to see their only grandfather. I think I understand why she lied and tried to poison everyone’s minds against us, but why his own parents? It takes a person with a very, very small conscience to do that. Then to tell Caroline that I was a copycat, a stripper, gold digger, whore, and wanted to be her? Wow. This blows my mind. Where does she get this from? Every one of those statements is false. It is terrible to go around and try to ruin someone’s character. It’s just not right. I’m not gonna lie, I really think it’s disgusting and I wish she would stop. The sooner she stops trying to hurt other people, the sooner her own life will get better. It’s not fair to do these things and lie to all of us constantly.

“There is now proof that she gets paid for these articles and she was lying to us the whole time. I think her credibility is now completely gone. I tried everything I possibly could to fix the relationship between Teresa and me and Joe. It was going really well. I did this for family. I did this for my husband. It is now clear that she tried to poison all the ladies’ and the public’s minds against Kathy and me and got them to feel sorry for her. But now the truth is coming out.

“I really feel that I tried to help Teresa. I knew she was having problems with the other ladies, and I jumped in and tried to help. I tried to give her advice. I also tried to make all the problems between her and her brother go away. Joe and I left that house with her and Joe. Whether or not we agreed with her, of course we left with her, she is family. Last season I threw that woman Monica out of my house for her. Joe and I were not going to let them fly home drunk. We are true family. With that said, we have worked really hard to make a beautiful family of our own and give our children a healthy and happy lifestyle. I will not let anyone, family or not, try to break that. We are giving our all to her and Joe, and I deserve the same from her. Hopefully, she will reciprocate and we can keep this good thing going.”

“Melissa, considering the lengths that you went to with Teresa, and to hurt her, you should be the last one having anything negative to say. Just remember it was Caroline that said all those names about you, not Teresa. I don’t believe that Caroline was in the car with Teresa as she talked to your mother-in-law talking about you and your husband, poisoning her mind. First of all, one child cannot do that with a mother against another child. A mother listens, and tries to talk to all her children to understand and forgive one another. I also believe that Teresa has kept a lot of things private and would not speak in English with her mother badly about her brother. Caroline did so much to help fix you guys? Like what? All we have seen her do, is what she did in last night’s episode and stir the pot to create hard feelings. She hates Teresa, and does not have an acceptable excuse for it, and is using you, your husband, Kathy as pawns. You are foolish to fall for it or to go along with it. Teresa forgave you for your indiscretions with Danielle, and in my opinion, I don’t know that I would have, because that was huge disrespectful and destructive, and you lied to Danielle about some things. You and your husband went onto this show with a chip on your shoulders, and you did it for fame, and money. Criticizing Teresa for any of that is hypocritical. You are family, and you can either help make it or break it. You should choose to do the right thing. You and your husband have said some pretty hideous things about Teresa, and your in-laws have heard them. So, I think if they got angry about them, or chose to stay away, it is because of that, and not because Teresa told them. It has been plastered all over the show. Caroline is a very angry human being that goes around judging people, and her and Lauren have already been shown making snide comments about you. Wise up, Caroline is not your friend, especially when she has said that you are a younger version of Teresa, and we all know how she feels about Teresa.” – MelindaK., August 27, 2012, Melissa’s Bravo Blog

“I was really sad and blown away to hear from Teresa what happened at the christening. It just didn’t seem to make sense or seem real. All I could think was, “Aren’t you supposed to congratulate the parents at a christening? Why did her own brother call her garbage?” And the banging on the table thing? Must be a Gorga trait. Something in their DNA maybe? It just wasn’t adding up. Was I missing something? Teresa never talked that much about her brother or Melissa with me. I’d seen them at all of her parties, but never noticed if they talked to each other. I think I just assumed that all was well. Up until this point I hadn’t heard anything that would make me think there were such deep issues between her and her brother that he would call her garbage.” – Jacqueline Laurita, May 23, 2011, Second Bravo Blog for Season 3

But Chuckie claims Teresa was talking trash about Melissa and Kathy before the show, and Melissa claims Teresa didn’t invite them to anything….busted and disgusted. Umm hmm and Jacqueline backed up Caroline’s story about Teresa talking about Melissa and Joe Gorga. I knew they were lying about that.  – Miza, August 28, 2012, Television Without Pity

At the very beginning of season 3, Jacqueline wrote in her Bravo blog: “Teresa never talked that much about her brother or Melissa with me.” If Teresa didn’t talk much about Melissa or her brother to Jacqueline, her good friend, then she didn’t in front of Caroline, who she didn’t hang out with other than for the show, when she was with the others. And why in the world would she tell Caroline anything, since she was barely more than an acquaintance who Teresa could already sense was turning on her by season 3? The truth: Teresa never spoke bad about her family to Jacqueline, just as Jacqueline claimed in May 2011 (three months after they finished filming season 3), nor did she speak bad about them to Caroline. Caroline is a dirty liar.

“I’ve been in the car with her when she was on the phone with her mother, poisoning her mother’s mind against her brother and Melissa and Kathy.” – Caroline Manzo, Lying About Teresa Behind Her Back in Her Talking Head Interview, Season 4 Episode 17

More proof that Caroline is lying about overhearing Teresa ‘poisoning her mother’s mind’ against Joe, Melissa, and Kathy: Teresa speaks to her family in mego 471Italian (Caroline must have forgotten) and Caroline doesn’t speak Italian.

When Melissa asked Caroline what Teresa said about her, Caroline wouldn’t answer her face to face; she waited to say something in her talking head, which is clearly a setup for the explosive season finale. Melissa quickly forgot that Teresa forgave her for contacting Danielle, her enemy, who she armed with personal information to use against Teresa at the season 2 reunion show. The source of this new dirt on Teresa, Caroline, only has on objective — to destroy Teresa anyway she can.

“Did she watch herself on the show? Guess she was just acting in Napa. And duh…..Melissa, you and Teresa hated each other. Of course she thought she was venting about you to her friends. As for Caroline hearing Teresa trash Mel on the phone to Teresa’s mother? I call BULLSH!T on that one. Teresa and Caro were never actually close according to Caroline…. Why would she be in Teresa’s car and why would Teresa be talking on the phone with her mom, who she sees every day according to Melissa, with someone in the car? BULLSH!T. I warned you all last week…..BEWARE OF THIS NEW NICE MELISSA. She shot herself in the foot with this blog!!!!! Lots of people were beginning to soften their opinion of her because of her nice behavior towards Teresa on the trip. But this blog tells her real feelings!!!!! Way to go cowgirl……..you really blew it this time!!!!! Thanks for making me right.” – Parkview, August 27, 2012, StoopidHousewives

“Finally The Real Melissa has Returned! I was wondering when Melissa’s animosity was going to come out! This blog represents Melissa IMO, no “Hi lovers I’m so excited for about this and that and isn’t it wonderful?” If Teresa reads this, she is going to laugh because no one would want to “reconcile” with someone who just insulted them. Melissa is just trying to tell the viewers why she hasn’t talked to Tre in a year. I hope this Melissa comes to the reunion and not that long suffering martyr who attended the last reunion.” pjbottoms, August 27, 2012, StoopidHousewives

“All that Caroline, Jax, MeHo, and Kathy say is, “Teresa said this…said that….talked about us here…talked about us there.” BUT, it was always done “Off camera and behind the scenes.” So, we’ll have to take their words for it. (In fact, Teresa said to Caroline, when they were out on Jax’s deck, that she never asked them not to talk to Melissa and Kathy. And Caroline said, “Well, you implied it.” Still, just Caroline’s take / word.) Yet, were have hours and hours of film over the past two seasons seeing those four talk trash about Teresa non-stop. They talk of NOTHING else. So, what the HELL is Melissa talking about? [Why this topic is not discussed by anyone on the show more is so insanely obnoxious — Theresa is trying to move forward and doesn’t spend every blog and waking show hour trying to trash them.]” – Elmozoe, August 27, 2012, August 27, 2012, StoopidHousewives

“MeGo is completely delusional! Has everyone of them forgotten about all the nasty things they CAME ON the show saying!!!! (Kathy and Melissa & Joe) How many times did Tre ‘turn the other cheek’ just to be slapped again. I mean come on…i dont agree with some of the ways Tre is responding now, but after a while any human being would simply get tired of people talking iiish and start giving it right back to them. Now they’re soooooooooooo offended????? REALLY? NEXT did anyone catch last night when MeGo said ‘just remember who had ur back!’ Now was that a line for cameras or what! This girl is dying to make the audience change their minds about her. You didnt have her back! You and Kathy sat right there and let the entire room charge at your ‘family’.” – ISeeSTOOPIDPeople, August 27, 2012, August 27, 2012, StoopidHousewives

“No one made the Sr Gorgas hate you, but you. What you think they are blind and deaf? They know what you are. To keep the peace with thier son and to be able to see their grandchildren. Or did you forget that Gorga Sr. outed you when he said he would come over and you didn’t open the door. DID YOU REALY THINK they would of picked you over their flesh and blood. NOT going to happen and that drives you nuts. You can’t pull one over on them. They see you Missy, they see your heart and soul and it’s as BLK and nasty as that stuff the Manzo’s are trying to porn..They got your number and I’m sure they let you know, so that is why you stay away from them because you can’t play your game. Tree got it to, but wants to have her brother in her life, so she gives you a pass EACH AND EVERY TIME and still you can’t stand with her on anything. YOU ARE not worthy of licking the shitt off the bottome of Tree’s shoes…….” – firstgeneration, August 27, 2012, August 27, 2012, StoopidHousewives

“Mego is just idiotic. She would think the sky was red, if Caro told her it was. A normal family member would take anything told to them by someone who despises their sister in law with a big grain of salt. But not Mego, she believes Caro and goes right on the attack against Tre. This just makes anything and everything Tre said about Mego being nasty and disrupting the family ring true.” – kel, August 27, 2012, August 27, 2012, StoopidHousewives

Here is Melissa’s August 26, 2012 interview with AOL/The Huffington Post (‘Melissa Gorga Of ‘Real Housewives Of New Jersey’ Talks Teresa Giudice Feud, Joe’s Phone Call And More’) where she talks about Teresa’s marriage after she proclaimed in her blog that she wasn’t going to do that even though Teresa talked about hers.

For two seasons now, fans of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” (Sundays at 10 p.m. ET on Bravo) have watched the bad blood between series mainstay Teresa Giudice and sister-in-law Melissa Gorga boil. But things have taken a turn recently on the show, which is now winding down its fourth season, and viewers have seen the families bonding like never before.

But Teresa recently revealing that she’s no longer speaking to any of her fellow “Real Housewives” castmembers, Melissa told HuffPost TV why and just how much things have gone downhill. Plus, find out her emotional reaction to Joe Giudice’s notorious phone call, her thoughts on her husband dropping trou and what’s next in her bourgeoning music career below.

We’ve been watching you guys in California and it seems like the Giucides and the Gorgas were getting along quite well. Were you guys genuinely enjoying each others’ company?

I was. That’s pretty much how I am: If you come to me and call a truce, you know, she’s family, of course I’m going to forgive her and try to move on and just hope she puts the past behind and doesn’t do any of the hurtful things she was doing again. That’s pretty much what I did. I said, “You know what? This is Joe’s only sister. Deep down inside, as much as he gets upset with her, he loves his sister. He wants it to just be normal. He wants to be able to see his nieces.” And I know that he wants that. So I really just put two feet forward and did everything I could to make it perfect, make it right and I really, really was enjoying myself. What you’re seeing is really honest. It’s real. I was enjoying spending time with her. I don’t know how real it was for her because of what you’ll see comes later on, but for me, it was real and it was true. I just don’t know how anyone could throw a punch after that. After we got to that spot, I just see no reason to hurt anyone again or put anyone down. You’ll have to watch to see if it stays that way or not.

There was a whole lot of closeness going on in those RVs. The Joes peed together and you and Teresa got handsy.

We were! [Laughs.] We’re Italians and we’re touchy-feely. That’s what we do. We were having a good time. We were comfortable with each other. We were all letting our guards down and being what a true family is.

In last week’s episode, there was a very controversial moment with Joe Giudice making a phone call. What did you remember what you were thinking while that was actually happening?

I had no idea that even happened. We watched it for the first time the way you did.

What did you think when you saw it?

Oh, I teared up. I really did. I was sitting on my couch and I teared up. It was sad. No matter what issues I have with Teresa, you don’t wish that on anyone. It was very obvious that she knew exactly who he was on the phone with from the footage. It’s sad and I guess she’s in some type of denial right now, but I think eventually she’ll get her head on straight and be ready to deal with it.

Is there anything embarrassing the show has ever caught that you wish didn’t air?

Only my husband drops his pants! I think I did know he did that — I was sitting right there, but I didn’t picture the whole world seeing him dropping his pants. And the blur! I don’t think the blur is that good on Bravo either, to be honest with you. I was like, “If you really look … I mean, Oh my gosh!” I wish he would stop dropping his pants.

In the future, when your kids watch, are you worried about explaining all of Joe’s nudity?

No. They’re just too young. They’re just not into it. I don’t let them watch it, so they don’t really know what’s going on. And they’re friends at school — my daughter’s in first grade — so their friends don’t watch the “Housewives” — they’re in bed at 10 p.m. So I don’t have to deal with any of that yet.

Have we seen the worst between you and Teresa this season? When we watched the Season 3 reunion, you were all in a very bad place and Jacqueline didn’t even show up. Is that because of something we already saw or the result of something we will see?

Yeah, when you see the finale, you’ll understand. And it goes in with a lot of what Jacqueline just released in People magazine about her son. So between the two and between something with her son, maybe that’s why she didn’t show up. She was very stressed out and I think the viewers are now seeing why Jacqueline had zero tolerance level and was done with all the pettiness. She didn’t want to sit around and listen to Teresa complain about her sister-in-law because she was dealing with her son being diagnosed as autistic. This stuff was not important to her, which it shouldn’t be.

In a recent interview with The Daily Beast, Teresa said she isn’t speaking to anyone on the show. Is that true?

Yeah. We have not been in touch.

Have you been in touch with your nieces?

Yeah. I went to their birthday party and I call them for their birthdays. We call Gia on her cellphone and Gia will call Joe on his cellphone, but [we have] not [been in touch with] Teresa.

We saw last season that Gia, being the oldest, is aware of what’s going on and she’s really affected by it. How is she handling everything?

You know, I have no idea. We don’t discuss it. That’s a question for Teresa.

I just saw a video of you rocking out to your new song “I Just Wanna Dance.” What’s the latest with your music career?

I’m really really excited for that one. It comes out September 9. It’s a very high energy dance track and it features an up-and-coming artist Santino Noir, who is excellent too. I was looking for an opportunity to do a dance track with a male vocal coming in and I found it. I think that anyone who loves the music that put out thus far is going to be really happy when they hear this. It’s my absolute favorite and there’s no denying that it’s great. It really is.

If you had to pick “Housewives” or your music career, which means more to you?

The music. Definitely the music.

Do you know yet if you’ll be a part of the next season of “RHONJ” if it gets picked up?

We don’t know yet.

It seems like this season has really taken a toll on a lot of the relationships between the “Housewives,” mainly because of the fallout with Teresa. Does it ever make you not want to do the show anymore?

No because I never did anything to hurt anyone. I can always go to bed and I never have to feel any regret inside because I’ve never hurt Teresa. I’ve never done anything to humiliate her or try to hurt her marriage or hurt her career. So no, I have no regrets. I’m doing things right. I can’t control what other people do and her actions are on her. I don’t need to sit here and regret being on a show because she’s doing things to hurt me and my marriage and my family. So I don’t regret it and yes, I’d do it again. As long as I can go home everyday and be proud of who I am and not feel like I’m trying to ruin someone else’s life then I have no reason not to do it.

I’m enjoying it. It’s a great opportunity. I’m a working mom now, which is great. I help Joe out, which has never happened because I was always a stay-at-home mom. We’re enjoying it. Our marriage is solid — thank God — and we can get through and we don’t let any of this go to our heads. I keep my home very normal. Our friends come over and everything is the same as it was three years ago. There’s nothing different about me, there’s nothing different about Joe. We’re exactly the same people so it hasn’t affected us and it hasn’t affected our family.

We’ve heard a lot from your castmates that Teresa is someone who has changed as a result of the show. Do you ever feel like if you guys all hadn’t done the show, things would be different with your family and Teresa’s?

No. We were on the outs before the show. The show didn’t create this.

But do you think being on the show made it any worse?

No. I don’t think it has actually. I think it’s the same as it always has been.

What else do you have going on?

Well, I’m working with Voli low-calorie vodka. They approached me and it just made sense with my lifestyle. It’s about having a good time and being able to go out and have a drink and not consume too many calories. It made sense. And with Pitbull and Fergie [who are also ambassadors for the brand], it’s great circle to be involved in. I really agree with the brand. It’s the world first low-calorie vodka. Joe and I like to go out and have fun and I like to keep a healthy lifestyle and stay in shape so it made sense.

And I’m really just focused on my music. I have some amazing producers interested in me and wanting to make songs with me. I’m looking at record labels now, which is beyond anything I could have ever dreamed of. So I’m happy, my family’s happy and all is good.

Here is Melissa’s very first Bravo blog, ‘No Fakers’ Bitter, Party of One, published on May 16, 2011, where she spoke her mind, unaware that she was coming across as envious of Teresa’s fame and out to assassinate Teresa’s character any chance she got:

Hi, everyone! I’m so happy that I have received this amazing opportunity to share my life with you — the good, the bad, and the ugly. You’re really getting a true insight into my life, and for those of you who decide to stand by me through this, thank you in advance.

First off I never realized how animated I am when I speak, especially when I’m making a point and speaking the truth. It certainly doesn’t make for boring TV! Anyway, my life is pretty crazy right now. I’ve had so many incredible opportunities come my way and met wonderful people. I am so grateful! However, this first episode has left me with many sleepless nights and lots of tears. My heart is broken for my son after the events of his christening. It was extremely hard for me to watch, and I wanted to quit the show as soon as I saw it. I will do reality TV as long as it makes me happy and I am enjoying it. The second it puts a strain on my marriage or my children, ciao. Period! One thing you will learn about me is that when I’m wrong, I say I’m wrong. When I have a headache, I say I have a headache. When I’m having a bad day or going through a difficult time, I will not deny it. That’s just me. I speak the truth, and that’s why I don’t stutter or look like I’m thinking when I talk. I am real.

Some of you may be very confused right now. You may be thinking, “Teresa has a brother?” Before all the press, you probably didn’t know we existed, did you? Well here we are! I know the episode is a bit confusing at first. You’re probably wondering why Joe acted the way he did when his sister came up to him. It’s understandable so let me explain. Teresa has kept my husband, Joe, and his family (me and my three children) away from everything she has been going through and everything that has been so exciting in her life for the last three years. Although this all started before the show even existed. You will get a lot of the back-story as the season goes on, so I’m not going to go too far back. I would be writing for days! She has never been happy for her brother or cared about anything good going on in his life or his children’s. She only wants to discuss her life and only cares about herself. She kept us as far away during Season 1 and Season 2, because I think she knew this would happen when they found us. Karma is a bitch. Family comes first for me, but unfortunately it does not for her, and it never will. It’s just not who she is, and that’s OK, but don’t think we are going to go on national TV and be fake with you. We are not fakers, sorry.

I think it is extremely obvious when she comes to the table giving us a kiss and saying congratulations for the second time that it was not the norm. You can read it all over all three of our faces. We really were not speaking to Teresa at the time of the christening, but of course I invited her to come, because we always invite each other to all of the children’s parties. I am always invited to her kids’ parties as well, and I will never miss one. We also had many bad conversations on the phone prior to the christening day, but it was my son’s christening, so of course I will kiss them hello and expect that they will do what they normally do at all the kids’ parties — not speak. We never do, never! On top of that, Joe obviously didn’t want to be there. He never wants to come to anything. With that in mind, seeing him hold Joey, whom he barely knows, and dance with him in front of the people for more than fifteen minutes was just bizarre to me. They are both very transparent, and I saw right through it. It was for show, it was for the people, and I still didn’t grab my son from them. I said nothing. I allowed them to do it. It was a christening, and I didn’t want to stir the pot.

What you might not know is that the whole christening day was really beautiful. My daughter Antonia performed a special ballroom dance for her baby brother that she practiced for months. It was the sweetest thing ever. We had a Michael Jackson impersonator there that was incredible. We danced all night, the music was fantastic, and it was such a great time.

Let’s discuss the hairdresser, Evelyn. She has been my hairdresser for four years now. She used to do Teresa’s hair as well. As far as I knew, Evelyn was no longer doing Teresa’s hair. Teresa by the way was not the one who referred me to Evelyn. That would never happen. My friend referred her to me. Evelyn never told me that Teresa called and that she went to do her hair. I found out when I watched the first episode. I was not trying to make her late. I had no idea Evelyn was going there afterward. Evelyn still does my hair three times a week. I guess Evelyn didn’t want to upset me on my son’s christening day and tell me Teresa starting calling her again.

Teresa says in her interview that all she wanted was her brother to grab her and dance. What? Is she kidding me? I can’t mego 467take it. She has had so many parties and never once grabbed her brother to dance, never once. They never dance together. Teresa is trying to put this image in everyone’s head, but it’s just simply not true. The tears? Why now? Why do you want to suddenly dance with your brother, when you have left him out of your life for years? You be the judge.

When Teresa says she was her brother’s best friend before he got married, I believe that was true. She probably was. She was the only girl around, and there was no one else to share the spotlight with. Teresa likes to be the center of attention. Be beneath her or get the hell out of her way. Well she has met her match! With that said, I wanted nothing more than to have her as my third big sister. I tried really hard in the beginning with her, but she was impossible. She was always insulting me or putting me down. And when I would get upset she would say, “God, you’re so sensitive.” No, I just want to be respected, that’s all. You will see this play out as the season goes on. Again, I will say that I wanted nothing more than for her to be a big sister to me. Wishful thinking?

When you see my sister Lysa react at the christening, she is just protecting her baby sister. She knows how Teresa has made Joe and I cry for years. She is very protective of us and has had it with her. My sisters and Joe have an amazing relationship. He feels they act more like sisters to him than his own does. When Teresa called my sister Lysa for advice because we didn’t want to talk to her anymore, I warned my sister not to talk to her. I knew this would happen, and I knew she would twist my sister’s words around. She does it all the time. My sister is my best friend; anyone who knows me knows that. Teresa knows that, and she hates it. She hates how close I am with my sisters, and I think she is envious of it. But we never kept her out; my sister always answered all her calls and tried to help her. Teresa loves Lysa, she always has, and believe me she still does. You can’t not love Lysa, everyone does. If she agreed to some of the things Teresa was saying, it was to make her feel like she wasn’t just on my side. She genuinely wanted us all to make up. My family is that way, you will see, the more the merrier! But Teresa just doesn’t know how to fit into a big crowd; she’s not a team player. My sisters have always welcomed her with open arms, and sometimes they were too nice to her, if you ask me! What I hope Teresa remembers is that she has four girls, and I know she would want them to stand by each other’s side like soldiers the way me and my sisters do. You will never break my sisters and me never, so her trying to call my sister out like that was just desperate.

My husband, my off the charts husband. As I think about the scene, the tears are falling from my eyes onto my fingers and my computer right now. Can’t this family see how hurt this man is? This amazing man, who built everything with his own two hands the honest way since he was nine years old. Yes, nine! He is not looking for anyone to praise him that is not what he wants. I really can’t get to deep into it, because it’s all coming up this season, and as it plays out I will discuss it in my blogs. I will say that he is honest, he is real, and there is no way in hell you won’t fall in love with him. It’s impossible! When he is speaking Italian to his father, you can see the little boy coming out and looking for his daddy. It’s heart wrenching. You will see that Joe is a man’s man, so for him to act that way there must have been a really good reason. There were still a lot of fresh wounds from all the fights we were going through before the christening, so when this happened, it just all came out. It’s real, no one in their right mind would do that for cameras. He wishes he could erase it, but it’s there for you all to see.

I will say that the fight did happen the last half hour of the night, and yes, he was drinking. We were celebrating our son, it’s very normal for us to have a good time and let loose at a party. But he knew exactly what he was doing, and he was not completely hammered. He just drank a lot by that time of the night. Did you see Joe with his niece, Gia? He is the best uncle in the world. You can see how much Gia loves him written all over her face. He was always a good uncle, and he always treated his sister’s children like little princesses. I think he expected the same when his daughter was born, but unfortunately he didn’t get it. Why? Because it’s all about Teresa. As you can see, it hasn’t affected the way he treats Gia or the other girls. He will always be an amazing uncle to them, even if she chooses not to be an amazing aunt. Thank God my kids have my sisters, they give them the love of twenty aunts, and Joe sees that. The one thing he regrets is calling his sister garbage. He doesn’t remember saying that, and it is not in his character to say that. Yes, he is completely disappointed with the way she treats him and his family, but he would never want to call her garbage. That is still his sister at the end of the day. He does love her. And so do I.

mego 479

On a lighter note, I loved the footage of my family and my kids. That’s what makes me smile! I have beautiful, sweet kids, and you’re going to love them. Yes, Joe is a little obsessed with being sexual, but you will laugh a lot when you see him and I together! It’s great TV. When Joe calls me his hero, I melt! He is my hero too! We both work incredibly hard, and we are not lazy people. We are go-getters, and if it’s there, we will find it! We complement each other so well. I hope God watches over our marriage through all of this and keeps us strong. This family is my life, my reason for living. I am nothing without Joe and my children!

Kathy and Rich have an unbreakable relationship as well. They have a perfect little family! Kathy on the bike… I was rolling on the floor! She is that person who is so funny but doesn’t even know it. Did you see the guy’s face when she was talking about the food? How perfect are her kids? I love them all; they are real people. Our families get along so well. Our households are run similarly, so it just works with them. We got along from the start!

Caroline’s boys are leaving her, and I felt for her. I am so far away from that right now, but I tend to look at her family and really relate to them. I also have one girl and two boys, and I just feel like when my kids get older we will be very similar to how they are now. We’ll be extremely close and supportive the way they are. I enjoy watching them. And all you girls out there, Albie and Chris have a bachelor pad now… woo hoo!

Jacqueline, sweet Jacqueline, this is so normal. Most teenage girls hate their mom. Well I shouldn’t say hate, that is harsh, but they don’t want to listen to their mom when they are that age. Jacqueline loves Ashley, I can see it in her eyes. She just wants Ashley to want and need her, and she wants Ashley to listen to her advice. Jacqueline seems a little passive, but believe me, she is smart and tough. She is very good at remaining calm. I love the faces she makes when Ashley gets her steamed up, they are so stern and powerful. As soon as Ashley falls in love and is ready to get married and have some babies, she will be calling Jacqueline every day for advice. I promise, it will come! I must say Jacqueline looks stunning in the whole first episode. She’s beautiful!

Well I can’t wait until more of the story unfolds, and you see the light! Or my light at least!

I’m excited, I’m nervous, I’m anxious, I’m scared, but I’m not going anywhere… So let’s do this!

    Gawd. I can’t anymore with this awful, two faced, social climbing, envious, mean hearted woman. Can’t. Next seson, I’m not watching this show. I can barely stomach the current season. But once you’re in, you gotta finish it, right? After this is all over, I’m not even sure I can watch the Reunion show. I’m done.
    Please tell me those photos are not from one of her kid’s birthdays? She bough a cheesecake and a poundcake and stuck a household candle in it. What a b*tch. She was too busy in California going to parties and signing vodka bottles in Hackensack to even drive to the shops and buy a nice cake. What the heck???

    • August 28, 2012 at 5:49 PM

      The pictures are from Joe’s birthday – I didn’t notice that her tweet failed to mention that, so I’m adding that to the photo and reloading it.

      I’m with you Dolores. I don’t think I’ll watch the reunion either. It’s gonna be ugly based on Caroline’s WWHL 1-on-1 interview with Andy and the others’ blogs this week.

        Famewhorgas, Oh no, you did not come this far to miss out on the reunion! You Know You’re Watching It with the rest of us!! lol

        It’s going to be ugly, but something tells me Teresa is ready this time around. I have to give Teresa respect. She doesn’t back down. Keep in mind, Teresa is going to that reunion knowing most viewers support her. She’s ready.

      • Rosalie Marie,
        September 1, 2012 at 8:55 PM

        I have a feeling Andy Cohen is going to bash Teresa’s husband during the reunion, so I hope Teresa will be prepared for that.

        I get myself worked up over her husband myself. lol. One week I love him and the next, I am screaming for a divorce. In the last episode, Joe walked up to Teresa and said, “My Love!”
        So I love him again. lol
        Ah, marriage. lol and this one’s not even mine. lol

  2. August 28, 2012 at 5:15 PM

    … but wait, didn’t Teresa poisoned Joe’s parents against them according to The Don? They must be cardboard cutouts! An now to read the article…

  3. August 28, 2012 at 5:22 PM

    So really, it’s Melissa who plays tit for tat, we got your back this time, you get ours next time. That’s a great definition of family. I have nothing more to add to such a great post! Famewhorgas, I’m trying to decide if you’re Charlie from Charlie’s Angels or a Fairy Godperson…… apart from being someone who just can’t stand this whole charade!!!!!

    • August 28, 2012 at 5:53 PM

      I really can’t stand it! Seriously can’t stand it! So much so that I can’t imagine watching another season. And I don’t want to watch the reunion, because it will be just like last year, only worse since Teresa probably will attack back and fail miserably — it’s five against one so the odds are against her.

      • August 28, 2012 at 8:34 PM

        I’m with you except I have to watch the reunion… I can’t help it!!!

      • Rosalie Marie,
        September 1, 2012 at 9:06 PM

        Famewhorgas and Sackem, something tells me if there is no change of cast for season 5, the ratings for RHNJ will sink like a ship. I’m just not interested in season five at all. Melissa and Kathy were a huge mistake. They came on like a rage and the fans will take this show down the same way. No viewers, no show. Not going down this path another season with Melissa, her sisters, her shrimp, Kathy and her coward husband.

        Yes, I would love to see Caroline go to but I can handle her. I can’t handle Melissa and Kathy. They are really selfish, rotten and need to go.

        • September 2, 2012 at 6:12 PM

          I agree!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Andy Cohen really should cover this at the reunion, along with her contact with Danielle Staub. Since he is the one who got the tweet from Danielle while Teresa was on WWHL, and let Teresa read it, he should question Melissa about it extensively, and not merely mention it. I have to do some research, and now check if Teresa’s appearance on WWHL was prior to the Season 3 reunion taping, where Cohen just kind of barely touched on the issue. I am curious to see now since he definitely knew about it because he was tweeted, if he intentionally avoided going into detail. I realize he did ask, but Melissa said there were a couple of e-mails, etc. from Danielle, and I never met her, making it sound very harmless; he did not pursue it. If anyone knows the answer, please post. However, I do intend to go back and look at things to see if I can determine the timing of everything. I cannot stand the fact that he wants to crucify Teresa, but Melissa is getting a pass from him and everyone on the show, for something that I consider extremely significant to the relationship between Teresa and Melissa. Melissa is no saint, and she should be held accountable already. They also need to give Teresa credit for forgiving Melissa of this transgression, and just how huge that really is, considering the issues everyone had with Danielle. I am extremely tired of this being one sided. If you want to call out Teresa, then let’s call out everyone and keep it a level playing field.

    these people are trash and jealous tresea got a cook book and thats something that Caroline alway whated, tresea got a make-up line and lauren went too school to do make-up and Jac know about make-up aswell its apparent that they all are jealous of Tresea . This Mellissa women how can she be like THINK YOU JESUS on one hand and lieing and cheating on Tresea on the other I would be
    afraid to play with God like that and that Kathy women and her no count husband there brke and fronting . Kathy plays like she is the sweet one that trys too keep the peace and all the time she know
    that how they got on the show they promised that they would take tre DOWN.

    Jealous of Teresa?Ah that is so friggin funny!!Ya I must b jealous of that idiot to.HELLO,any-one can do a cookbook.I think if Caroline wanted to do a book ,she could.Hello the lady had her own radio show.And what is the big friggin deal about Mellisa getting in touch with Danielle?Ah ya,they the Gorgas were not getting along with numb nuts,so what is the big deal.Have u talked to any one lately?Blah Blah Blah.I am no longer a fan of Melissa,I think she has become so hung up on herself.And Caroline needs to forgive to ever b forgiven for her wrongs she does to others in this life but as far as Teresa goes she is a person that does not admit when she is wrong,she acts like she is the best also.she can’t even speak the language right & she has been in our country since a baby.I am becoming soft with her marriage thing but she really needs to admit her husband is having an affair.as far as what they do with their marriage is their business.No one should b telling her to move on,etc,it is no ones business,I hope they will b able to work it out,they have daughters to think about!

      I totally agree (you and I must be the only 2 on this website LOL)! T is a friggin idiot, and a total narcissist. But YES, the other woman are jealous of her. YES, she’s slow, YES, she takes no personal responsibility for her actions, YES, she’s completely delusional in many ways and lies constantly, YES, she contradicts herself frequently, and YES, she talks shit about the people who she calls “friends” and then acts surprised when they are offended. They’re not jealous of her IQ – it’s her marketability and and success with product lines that are turning them green.

      I’m not saying I’m a fan of the others; they’re much worse then T. T is stupid on accident. She really means no harm, but the others are calculated, and it’s sickening to watch. I’m with the rest of you who say you’re done watching after this season. It’s actually stressful to watch the show; I find myself getting upset while I watch it – it’s hard to witness animals tearing their prey to apart!

      I remember when I found this blog; it was about 6 months ago. When I found it, I literally sat at my laptop all day pouring over everything famewhorgas had written. It was such an eye opener! What’s funny is that now that all this carefully dug-up dirt on the “Whorgas” is coming to light on television, they’re about to be blown wide open with their own filth! I can’t wait to watch Melissa Gorga run over by her own wrongdoings. And you know what’s REALLY sad? Teresa will probably be on her side through it all, refusing to comment, when you KNOW damn well Melissa would have done as many interviews as she could if the situation was reversed. Melissa is a desperate, vindictive, spiteful, deceitful, nasty woman. She’s just a bad person.

      • August 30, 2012 at 8:45 PM

        Hey RayRayH,

        I thought I’d let my readers know that, even though there are not many comments compared to the average blog (probably because my posts are lengthy articles), famewhorgas gets its fair share of hits for a blog that doesn’t publish daily and only covers the RHONJ (I publish on average 6 articles per month, although I update them frequently). The first ever post here was published in February 2012:

          Wait – did you think I was implying you were obscure or insignificant because I said the info is just coming to light on TV? I apologize; I just meant that to MY knowledge all the info you publish is starting to become general knowledge to RHoNJ viewers. I cannot tell you how many times I’ve read on a blogs/articles comment section, “I thought Melissa was the nice one, but I know better now! Go to famewhorgas.com to really see what she’s about!” or something along those lines. Sometimes a comment would simply be your web address, and nothing else! I started seeing more and more as the 4th season started that the viewers were switching sides, and many of them were citing you as their source of realization. Famewhorgas has really evolved into a life of it’s own!

          I didn’t mean to ruffle feathers. I absolutely love this blog and I wish you’d do more articles! I simply meant that I saw it here, first, then I started seeing gossip magazines do stories on stuff that you had already written about months before (example: the audition tape). I thought it fitting that the truth was going public, but I definitely think you put the info out there first. Maybe I’m wrong!!! Love you anyways LOL!!! XOXO 🙂

          • August 30, 2012 at 10:14 PM

            I didn’t take offense to it RayRayH. It just triggered an idea for me to let readers know the stats. No worries!

            Most of my hits are from people returning to the site. As far as search engines go, most make their way here by specifically searching for famewhorgas (all different forms of the term), so I know the word it out that this blog exists, thanks to readers like you. Also, as far as search engines go, quite a few people find this site using the search term (or something similar to) “Melissa Gorga broke” – they must not be fooling as many viewers as they think.

        • October 27, 2012 at 7:26 PM

    I don’t like anyone on that show – except Teresa – I wish Bravo would get rid of the entire Manzo clan and Kathy and Richie and Melissa and Joe. Start next season with some new people. I am not watching next season if it is going to be another LETS ALL HATE TERESA. I AM SO OVER THIS BS

  8. August 29, 2012 at 6:58 PM

    “No because I never did anything to hurt anyone. I can always go to bed and I never have to feel any regret inside because I’ve never hurt Teresa. I’ve never done anything to humiliate her or try to hurt her marriage or hurt her career. So no, I have no regrets. I’m doing things right. I can’t control what other people do and her actions are on her. I don’t need to sit here and regret being on a show because she’s doing things to hurt me and my marriage and my family. So I don’t regret it and yes, I’d do it again. As long as I can go home everyday and be proud of who I am and not feel like I’m trying to ruin someone else’s life then I have no reason not to do it.” Who does she think she is? Not one of these statements about Teresa is true. The only thing that is true is that she has no regrets. And she admits she came on the show knowing their relationship was bad…. that Teresa hasn’t changed. Oh my!

    • August 29, 2012 at 7:14 PM

      They are baiting Teresa with their blogs. She took the bait and attacked back in her blog, but now she needs to keep her cool. She should do what she did with The View and refuse to tape the reunion with them — they haven’t talked to her in a year, so she should continue to steer clear of them. She needs a separate segment or do what Jac did and don’t show up for the reunion. Let them sit around and talk about how wonderful they are and how terrible she is. She cannot defend herself against a pack of liars.

      She forgave them for their indiscretions but they refuse to forgive her. When they can’t find a reason to hate her, they make up lies. They project their flaws onto her. Everything they accuse her of doing is what they are guilty of doing to her.

      Here’s Caroline’s latest rant about Teresa:

      “I had to get involved, because [Teresa] looked directly at me and asked me a question. And I had no intention of saying a word, not a word, because I was exhausted. You can see in my face that I just wanted the trip to end. I was exhausted from it. And I was asked a direct question. And if you’re going to be so brave as to ask me a direct question and knowing what the answer is going to be, I’m going to give it to you. And that’s what happened. There was nothing fun about it. I don’t relish any moment of it. I don’t look at that and say “winner” or “loser,” whatever the case may be. It was an ugly moment in my life that I want to forget. And I hope that I never have to deal with that again. It’s not fun. It’s not nice. There’s nothing to be proud of there. And the endgame was that’s the way I had to handle what was. That’s all. I have a very clear understanding of what is. There could be forgiveness if it’s asked. I’m big enough to say that I was rude and obnoxious and very hard on [Teresa], which I was. But, that’s the level she brought me to. But, you still haven’t apologized for what you’ve done to any of us, not just me, to any of us. And until there’s a real legitimate apology, I’m not interested. So, why would I go back into the lion’s den? I said what I had to say. I was very blunt and very matter of fact in what I had to say. I don’t regret it. I regret that I had to do it, but I don’t regret those words because my conscience is clear now and I’m good. I don’t need to go back there. Why would I do that? I just don’t think she treated her family and friends with any kind of dignity or respect. And I think that’s sad, because everybody was there for her. – Caroline Manzo, August 27, 2012, Celebuzz

      Teresa, Caroline doesn’t have a dog in this race so she has nothing to lose by going after you. They aren’t her family members. She doesn’t care about them or you. Don’t take the bait. Bravo wants her to get a rise out of you like Danielle did in season 2 with Melissa’s help. Your cousin and SIL are out for your blood. It’s in the footage and in their blogs. That’s all the evidence you need. Don’t react, don’t attack back… be the bigger person. You can’t argue with liars…they just cover one lie with another and another until you begin to question your own memory and then your own sanity…you can never resolve an issue with a liar. The best thing for you to do is ignore them and not respond to their lies… if you constantly defend yourself against their false accusations, you eventually will become consistently shrill and defensive.

      Teresa, they truly want to hurt you. They want the show for themselves and their families and friends. They want you gone. They want to turn the viewers against you. Most importantly, they want Bravo to be against you. You are better off without Bravo. Get through season 5 being as fake as the rest of them. Then move on to another network, and make sure your contract gives you executive producer privileges. Protect your marriage, children and parents from any further humiliation.

      Teresa, Melissa admitted to contacting Danielle to give her dirt on you because she hated you — she never stopped hating you — every episode is just an act. And when she tells the camera that she is doing everything possible to bring you and Joey together, we all know she is full of it… I’m amazed she has any fans at all. Of course she is the reason for the rift in your family. She and her sisters do not want you to have a relationship with your brother. And as long as he is married to her, you won’t… and there is nothing you can do about that, so let it go, no matter how much it hurts.

      Teresa, no good will come from you telling Caroline how you feel about her. Jacqueline is a member of her family so she has to show her loyalty to Caroline, no matter how horrendous her behavior is. Your family doesn’t show you that kind of loyalty. Caroline is trying to destroy your relationships with your family the way she believes you destroyed her relationship with Dina. But we all know she did that on her own.

      Teresa, everything Caroline accuses you of doing, she is guilty of doing — projecting her own flaws onto you and ‘blame shifting’ as Jacqueline likes to call it. She blames you for her hatred and says you brought her to this level — she can’t even own her anger — it’s always your fault. You will never win with these people. And she has her army of idiots — her spouse and offspring, and Jacqueline, Kathy and Melissa and their spouses and sisters — to back her up (they failed to back her up during the hot tub scene, but they learned their lesson and won’t let that happen again). Don’t go up against that army. They are merciless. They are liars. They are despicable. They are ruthless people. She is putting wood on the fire, not you. She is out to destroy you just like she said Albert would destroy your husband. Stay away from them for the sake of your children, your husband and your parents.

      In the next episode (episode 18), Caroline says this about Teresa: “I think Teresa has an agenda to drive a wedge against myself and family members.” This is what Caroline is doing to Teresa!

      Here is what Caroline said about Teresa’s relationship with Dina in her October 21, 2011 Bravo blog:

      “Teresa claims that the biggest hurt of all is watching her parents deal with the pain of their children fighting while the nation watches. So my question is this — Teresa knew how important it was to me to keep the Dina issue hidden, but tried numerous times throughout the season and through her blogs and interviews to reveal it. She finally had her moment at the reunion. Did she think I would deny it? Congratulations, Teresa, the only thing you succeeded in doing was hurting my parents. What a fool I’ve been in my efforts to bring your family together when it was your intent to destroy mine from the start. Shame on you. I’ve been asked by numerous publications to tell my story regarding Teresa and Dina and have denied them all, because I refuse to glorify an already sad situation. Teresa may think she hurt me, but what she doesn’t understand is that she can never hurt me, because I take into account where it’s coming from. Unlike you, Teresa, I can look in the mirror and hold my head high knowing that I have always given the best of myself to my family and friends. I live my life with integrity and self-respect.”

      This is the scoop from an insider who commented on RT back on September 17, 2011:

      “In Season 4, you will see Don C and Jac turning on Tre. Jac is puppeted by Don C. Don C is mad that Tre is very close with Dina. Although Tre was always the closest with Dina, and made friends with her first, Don C is beyond big headed. Don C and Dina got into it (like they usually do) but this time Don went too far and they have not spoken for quite some time. Don C turned on Tre because she is pissed at Dina and taking it out on Tre. She is angry that Tre does not jump when she speaks ala Jac. Don expects everyone to listen to her, and when they don’t, all hell breaks loose. This is why she likes Missy, who only kisses Don’s ass to spite Tre. The fight [the one which led Tre to seek Dina’s advice and which is captured on film in season 4] takes place, conveniently and scheduled, right before Melissa’s single release party. On camera, Don C and Jac try to cover up the issue and act as thought they are mad at Tre for something else, but the real issue is the aforementioned. What infuriated Don even more, and helped lead to the blowout quicker, was the fact that Tre listened to what Danielle had to say regarding Melissa contacting her. Tre was already aware of Missy reaching out to Danielle, but was in denial until the WWHL Twitter War. Don C honestly did not want to go through sticking up for Tre because that means she would simultaneously be confirming that Danielle was correct.”

      Teresa, heed the warning of a great man of God, Charles Haddon Spurgeon: Expect trouble, for foes are everywhere, but do not enter the thicket with the lion, for he that meets with him, even though he wins the day, will find it a stern struggle.

      • August 29, 2012 at 8:43 PM

        Beautiful! I wish I could disagree on something–especially that Teresa should avoid them altogether but I fear you are right.

          Hope that Teresa handles the reunion in the same manner that NeNe did one year. Don’t remember which,but she was quiet,contained and cool as a cucumber. Would love to see her calmly respond to the bs with something like “we’ve been over that,it’s apparent that my explanation won’t be accepted”…”really not interested in being attacked,slandered,bullied”… and then offer personal information,updates on the girls,goals,etc. she needs to shut these “ugly human beings” down.

          • August 30, 2012 at 12:22 PM

            Excellent advice. I hope someone passes this on to Teresa.

      • August 30, 2012 at 5:10 PM

        I’m stunned. Amazed! I cannot fathom the thought processes these women go through. You know the circle I blog in… it’s apparently infectious. Do you know, the latest thing is, the Queenz is trying to link a year old tweet that Dina made about karma to Nicholas. Luckily some astute contributor made the connection to the Casey Anthony trial. Even writing that, I’m doubting myself because it’s so farcical! Really? Did that just happen or did I read it wrong?
        Never in my life have I seen a group of people (including those on the show) swayed so fiercely by rumour and innuendo. It’s like the collective synapse has broken between rational thinking and storytelling. Just because someone points the finger and screams liar, does not make that person a liar. Isn’t that what the justice system is based on? Where’s the evidence? I’ve been asking what it is that Teresa has lied about, the crux of the argument and not one viewer can give me an answer. Gosh it’s like the Salem witch trials or McCarthyism.
        The buzz word of the week is sociopath. For someone who apparently is unable to write her blog (yes now someone else writes all her communications) let alone tie her shoes (there’s a list of comments posted made by students of the college Teresa went to), Teresa is one smart cookie for being able to sway grown ups to do her dirty work. I mean Caroline sure did raise those boys right…. Teresa forced them to throw down in Punta Cana right? Nice job Caroline. Teresa made her parents dislike Melissa, nice job of coming on the show to tear down their family Melissa but this is Teresa’s fault right? Oh did you know it’s Teresa’s fault that they didn’t get Nicholas treated sooner… yes as a friend with a child the same age, it was up to her to notice his behavioural differences because that’s what friends do right… my child is better than your child. I’m simply agog! Perfectly timed dissemination on behalf of the Lauritas and Manzos…. truly, they deserve a golf clap for the smear campaign they’ve been waging.
        The women is expected to stand deaf, blind and mute before the world whilst people line up with a pinata stick. I think I need to step away from the net for a while… my head is going to explode! All because of some sprinkle cookies! Unbelievable! PS The Don wants to get some empathy…. she is not the moral yardstick by which we should all live. Her ethics and motivation is skewed. If she doesn’t accept an apology, then don’t accept it. Don’t keep demanding it, and throwing it back in someone’s face because you fail to like the delivery. Is this a domination game? Is she trying to piss on Teresa’s leg and show who’s top bitch? I don’t get it.

    Just wanted to point out an observation… when Caroline was talking about Teresa in season 1 (and possibly season 2 but I’m not sure, I just remember it coming up several times season 1) she would always say “Teresa… Teresa’s a trip” (with a laugh) and now, twice this season, she has said “Melissa’s a trip” (in a complimentary way, like with Teresa) in her talking head interviews. Doesn’t look good for you, Melissa, if she would turn on Teresa the way she did =P

        • August 30, 2012 at 7:26 AM

          It is not a coincidence that Melissa’s sister Kim Pirrella and Queenzofmedia are both tweeting about Dina Manzo. The Marco sisters are their inside sources, but we know they all lie, so don’t believe any of their stories. You’re right: this is dark, mean and ugly. That describes the Marco sisters perfectly.

          Kim Pirrella ‏tweeted during episode 17 (August 27, 2012), which previewed Dina’s appearance on next week’s show. She seems to be jealous of Dina, probably because she and her sister Lysa want to be cast on RHONJ or get their own show featuring the 3 Marco sisters.

            So it wasn’t a dream? I gotta switch this show off! I’ve worked in the biz for the last 12 years, I know the machinations of the industry (I accidentally posted the “all actors are narcissists” and the Bethenny’s mum comments… I was on different device and thought it knew me) and I can’t believe I’m this involved in what essentially has become “dramality”. There is no way that this is real. People cannot be this evil. I was going to write cruel but that does not even begin to define it. Did you notice the poor edit this week? The sound bites sewn together and the continuity errors. Honestly this show is becoming an insult to my intelligence. Is this what women do to each other for a cookbook sale and a couple of songs? Wow, time to go back and start burning our bras! Seriously, can we get Germaine Greer to the reunion Andy?

I don’t know what to believe. then I look at Caroline and I see real anger and hatred, all the hoopla over Joe’s call is questionable as well!! I’m seriously baffled!

    • RayRayH
      August 30, 2012 at 11:51 PM

      Regarding the call, Teresa said that Joe talked to a few different people that day, and the phone call scene was cutting back and forth between Joe and T, so maybe they strung a few different calls together to make it look scandalous??? I don’t know; it seemed pretty real to me and he does strike me as the type to cheat freely, but I also wouldn’t put it past Bravo to make a mountain out of a molehill. LOL Does Bravo realize that they (probably unintentionally) are garnishing sympathy for her by highlighting every single thing that goes wrong in her life and leaving the other girls out of the line of fire? You’ve heard that saying, “Any publicity is good publicity.” Well, it looks to be true with Tre.

    • August 31, 2012 at 3:33 AM

        Ray ray, I’m not a believer in the phone call simply because, I have a personal friend on a reality show and she shared some info with me. They will edit words in, especially if ur not facing the camera, not to mention, a scene that we the viewers saw didn’t happen as it appeared. I now question it all, mostly because I don’t believe civilized women behave this way! I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again..I’M CONFUSED!! lol
        One more thing regarding the phone call..If Teresa would have implied the call was fake, the viewers would have said she’s delusional or in denial..On this one, I think she’s playing along. Just my opinion!! 🙂

  12. August 30, 2012 at 9:55 PM

    If Andy does not bring up some of this dirt on Melissa, Caroline and Kathy I will never watch BRAVO again. That will not be hard I only watch RHONJ and RHONY and I do not like New York anymore.

    I sincerely hope Teresa is not crucified on the Reunion show. If she is my friends and I are OUT.

      Andy thinks they bring in the ratings. That may have been true seasons 1 & 2, but I can’t believe it’s still true. She and her children, especially Lauren, are unbearable. And Albert is a major jerk this season.

Even if Andy didn’t say it, the thing is, he was pissed off and obviously didn’t like being ‘lied’ about like that. Oh, but it’s okay for Andy to bring Teresa’s sister-in-law and cousin on the show to lie, lie, lie about Teresa.

        JerseyGirl commented at famewhorgas on August 25, 2012 at 12:34 AM and said:

        “Well… okay, I don’t have a good full account to give you really, because my roommate is actually pretty tight-lipped about it, as it refers to his job. Andy is supposed to act neutral about all the housewives and is not supposed to play favorites, but it’s just known among the staff that he dislikes Teresa, particularly because of the homophobic stuff her husband has said, and also because he thinks she’s emotionally unstable. I don’t really know specifics. I think he likes the Manzos; when I suggested maybe they could leave the show, my roomamate said, “OMG! no! They have SO many fans, their fanbase is way too huge and it would sink the show if they left’.”

        She gave some more insider info, which you can read here:


  14. autumnleaves61
    August 31, 2012 at 1:36 AM

    I don’t really know where to put this, but wanted to make sure everyone knew that I Tweeted Andy Cohen about the “scabby rabbies” comment and he absolutely denied making it. He told me to get my facts. I told him I had gotten the facts from an alleged Bravo insider, who Queenz of Media claimed to be getting the details from.

    I later responded to him again & reminded him how unprofessional it is IF a Bravo employee is divulging private info about another employee (Teresa) or about business matters, etc. Of course I didn’t get further response, but God bless other fans who also did speak up and confirm some of the details as well.

    You know how that goes: repeat a lie enough times, and ppl forget it was a lie.

    I went through my associates on my account last week and deleted/blocked quite a few. I absolutely want NO PART of bullying and harassing people whether they’re public figures or not. The only point in doing that is self-serving, ala the Fame-whorga Sisters. They are some of the nastiest of the nasty-in fact, the whole group has taken on a mob mentality, which is a good indicator of their “character”. Pushing nasty innuendo 24/7 is pointless, b/c it changes no minds & influences no outcomes.

    I have little desire to bicker & fight with ppl on the Internet about Teresa Giudice or any of the other cast. I’d be all for Teresa not returning to the program and going off on her own with a different network showcasing her, her family, and her friends. The other cast could then happily go on about their business without her and prove they’re able to be interesting on their own-problem solved.

I can’t think of any other franchises where this kind of thing has gone on to such a degree, especially with Bravo’s knowledge.

        • autumnleaves61
          August 31, 2012 at 10:29 AM

          Adding: I believe someone at Bravo IS providing little tidbits, but obviously getting some of it wrong as they pass it on. I doubt it would be very hard to figure out who it is, b/c of the kinds of info they’re giving out-and esp. because some of it is wrong. Someone who is overhearing things, or being told second-hand, misconstruing facts. Low-level assistant who wants to appear important by knowing stuff…(pure speculation by me).

          IE: Bravo intended to film ‘Reunion’ Aug 3. Really? Reunion before 4 major episodes aired? Film just before Andy Cohen was leaving on vacation & WWHL was on break? They rescheduled it JUST to force the Giudices to discuss Juicy’s court case? : WRONG.

          • August 31, 2012 at 2:43 PM

            The cast gets their copies of the episodes at least five days before they air, and the episode with Joe using vulgarities against his wife was previewed by Bravo for two weeks before it aired (not the standard), so I think the cast got the tape more than two weeks before it aired, and Melissa gave the scoop to QoM, and QoM made up another lie to dupe people into believing they have an insider at Bravo (so then people will believe all their BS because they were right about the c-word scene).

            Some are speculating that the vineyard scene was supposed to air in episode 15 so they would have gotten the tape the Wednesday before episode 15 premiered… the vineyard scene with Joe on the phone was cut from episode 15 and added to episode 16 because Teresa’s lawyers were trying to block Bravo from airing it (she did blog that she begged Bravo not to air it). This would explain why it was previewed at the end of episode 14 as being on “the next episode of RHONJ”, but actually didn’t air until episode 16.

            People magazine had the full clip (even Bravo’s website didn’t preview the whole scene) at least a week before it aired, which didn’t make sense at the time, but now it does — the cast already had their copies of episode 15 with the scene still in it (before the scene was cut and added to episode 16). So someone from the cast leaked the uncut tape (the full scene with Joe calling Teresa the c word) to QoM and to People.

            So QoM didn’t have an inside scoop after all… the cast had already seen the scene on their uncut copies of episode 15 more than two weeks before it actually aired during episode 16… and Melissa gave it to QoM so they could scoop it and pretend they had a contact inside Bravo … that way everyone would start to pay attention to QofM and believe their BS because they must really have a Bravo insider as their source.

            That’s how I see it. Do you have a timeline for when QoM supposedly scooped this c-word scene? There is nothing else they have written that has any truth to it. What’s your take?

  15. Rosalie Marie,
    August 31, 2012 at 2:58 AM

    I am very confused here! Let me see if I have this straight, Joe and Melissa claim they bought a home for the Gorga parents. Then Joe and Melissa a claim that Teresa poisons their mother’s mind and has turned her mother against he and Melissa.
    So, mama is against Joe and Melissa even though Joe and Melissa are “providing” a home for the parent’s?
    Anyone get what I’m asking and trying to comprehend here? Nobody is against someone who provides shelter for them. Either Joe and Melissa are lying about providing a home for their parents or they are just simply lying about Teresa tainting mama’s mind or, OR….. it’s the most obvious, they are lying about all of it? WTF! If Melissa really did attend college, that gold-digging goof needs to go back.

      I was really surprised to hear about Joe Gorga providing a house for the Gorga parents, b/c the mean gossip a couple years ago was that Teresa had her parents living w/her & was living off her parents income when she filed bk; and that they were her built-in nannies.

      Always assumed it was Melissa & Company who put that out there b/c who else would give a rip about Teresa “using” mom and dad, but a close family member who would take exception. (only one exists).

      Speaks to the idea that Melissa has been spreading gossip for a long time, knowing its not true.

      Let’s get a few fact s straight Joe gorga bought his fairest with his father’s name on the deed. Second the home joe Gorga’s parents are living in was where his business was in Wayne NJ. Now he only has a Paterson office since the bubble broke. Secondly when Joe bought that house Teresa parents sold a Home for $450k. Did you ever think Joe is paying his parents back for the money he borrowed. Melt hey are dogs. Ps screen shots to show what I am saying is true for the timing of the events. I will email them to you take these people down they are dogs

        Proof Not necessary. These two characters contradict themselves to the point of utter Stupid!

        As for the Gorga parents, I do hope Teresa mentions this at the reunion. Not because it’s any of my business but I think it’s terrible of Joe to appear like he is providing a home for his parents and he isn’t. Is he attempting to embarrass his parents? Most parents have pride, and while there is nothing wrong with a child buying a home for their parents, there is something seriously wrong when a child says, “I PROVIDE! a home for my parents.”

    If you go to the On Common Ground site, which was/is a blog about the RHONJ from the beginning even before it actually started airing, you can see that it is obvious that there were bloggers who were close to the cast. In fact, one claims to be related, if I remember correctly, by marriage, and discusses Teresa (obvious because of comments), and her family, marriage, etc. They are not kind remarks. It is evident that it is Melissa and her cohorts making comments on the blog. So yes, Melissa and her sisters have been spreading malicious gossip and rumors for a long time, especially once the show began filming and before it aired. There was also someone who posted on there stating that they had had a three month affair with Albert Manzo, Sr. Clearly, it was a site that people went on to post negative comments and information about the cast. After reading that, and with Melissa and Joe Gorga coming on the show in Season 3, especially the way they came out of the gate talking sh*t about Teresa, it is evident that some of the anonymous posts on that web site came from Melissa. It also shows how jealous she was of Teresa being on the show, and how she felt (hated) Teresa, and wanted her “truth” to get put out there. Melissa and her sisters are nasty, jealous and classless people, who have been for a long time. The interview that Melissa puts out saying no she doesn’t regret coming on the show, and yes she will continue to do the show, and that she can sleep at night because her conscience is clear, is such a load of crap because Melissa Gorga has no conscience. I wish Teresa’s parents would speak up, and tell everyone what is truth and not truth about their feelings as parents and seeing their family’s dirty laundry aired this way. I would also like to know about the parents’ living situation, because in the episode where Joe Gorga said that they lived in one of his houses, but he sold it, and put them in an apartment and now pays their rent, Teresa and Joe Giudice were on WWHL that night, and Teresa was anxious to say something about all of that, but then they went to a commercial.. That week in her blog, she said since her parents were private people that she would not discuss details of their life, but couldn’t believe that her brother was so petty. There is more to the story of where the parents live and if Joe Gorga takes care of them. Somehow, I doubt that he takes care of them by just writing a check each month, as he put it. Personally, I don’t see Melissa allowing him to do all of that for his parents. I think she could care less about his family, despite her claims. She is so self-centered that she isn’t capable of putting Joe’s family and his wish for them all to get along, before her desires for fame. Remember, we never knew anything about these people before they came onto the show, because Teresa never said anything negative about them publicly. Melissa and Joe Gorga are about fame and money, and nothing else. They are the ones who step on people to get it, not Teresa. It irritates me very much this season, when the cast made that a talking point about Teresa stepping on everyone, friends and family, to get what she wanted. The way I see it that is what the Gorgas, Wakiles, and now the Manzos and Lauritas have done, especially this season. The whole thing is pathetic and despicable.

    Something is definitely fishy going on concerning her FB fanpage because she suddenly appeared as my latest “like” & I have never even visited the page. I ended up reporting the page because it’s really trashy & beyond tacky to have some sort of “system” randomly capture “likes” for your fanpage.

    I met Teresa at a book signing this summer. My main agenda was to tell her that, as a Jewish woman I was not offended ( or my Jewish friends) by her TH implying her Jewish friends would have left their husbands had they gotten into the financial trouble Joe did. I asked her why Andy made such a big deal about it? She responded with ” to create drama, you should tweet Andy” then she said something about Andy giving Joe a hard time as well!! ( trying to remember if she said specifically about gay slurs)

  19. September 1, 2012 at 2:12 AM





    To be perfectly honest, the toast didn’t really bother me all that much.

    When it comes to Teresa…I have come to not expect too much.
    I joined everyone in the hot tub, you can see that I really wasn’t THAT upset.
    I made a joke about the toast, and we all laughed it off. I was over it.

    I had the opportunity to tell her how … WE all had such a nice time together on this trip.

    When Teresa and I had a chance to talk…all I was trying to do was point out that there is a pattern to her behavior.

    Caroline doesn’t need anyone to fight her battles…that’s not what I was trying to do…. was trying to explain to Teresa… I really wanted her to see things from another point of view.

    Caroline and Jacqueline have been trying so hard to help her reconcile with her brother.

    She tends to see things in terms of black and white with no middle ground. Either you’re for her or against her.

    I do regret TRYING TO REASON with Teresa.

    Teresa grabbed my face when she noticed that I was looking into my phone to pull up one of the “In Touch” magazine articles…in which she accuses me saying things about her that I’ve never said. …

    (KATHYS EXCUSE) a joke to someone’s face gives everyone the opportunity for an exchange and then it’s over. The written word is so much more powerful and certainly more permanent. (KATHY THE VICTIM)

    I never once raised my voice or spoke to Teresa disrespectfully…Teresa started to lose control, it was a sign that she was increasingly desperate in trying to be convincing.

    I didn’t want her to feel that there were sides and my intention was for unity not division

    Teresa would have nothing of anyone’s attempt to mediate

    Given Joe Giudice’s condition and Teresa’s emotional state, neither one was in any condition to be traveling by themselves.

    Rich likes to do as little physical labor as possible. His motto has always been, “Why use your back when you can use your brain?” Lucky for him he always finds someone (willing or not) to pick up the slack, so he can supervise.

    I want to address the LITTLE talk I had with Caroline and Jacqueline…I asked so many questions about what went on in their conversations with Teresa…I needed to understand the dynamics of what was going on so that I could be supportive and compassionate to everyone. That’s just me…

    The fact that I was left out of my cousin’s toast after I had tried so hard with her was a disappointment at best…I was embarrassed…Teresa’s actions speak volumes…

    I was so happy that Teresa came in to share her feelings with me about what she thought I said to her …I was starting to second guess myself and feel bad… I couldn’t remember if I said they were my mom’s recipes… didn’t want to fight with her over cookies…Thankfully after watching this week’s episode I’m happy to see that my memory did in fact serve me correctly…I never said the word “recipe.”…My mom always shared her recipes with all of her sister-in-laws… a picture of my mom’s SPRINKLE cookie recipe…

    I was thrilled to work with Gelotti’s …I didn’t need any fanfare or glitzy over-the-top signs or billboards to draw anyone’s attention… They are small individual-sized portions… you can indulge in a decadent treat without sacrificing flavor ..

    Regardless of how much success you may achieve, to me it means nothing at all unless my family is there to share it along with me. That’s one sacrifice I will never make.

    I went to Teresa’s book signing at the bakery because I wanted to let her know how proud I was of her… as I’m enjoying and complimenting her cupcakes, she slips in a dig… a dessert cookbook will never be successful, because everyone is watching their weight… I notice the pictures of cookie’s my mom often makes…She doesn’t even have a pizzelle recipe in that book, just a recipe using store bought!…family shares recipes all the time. ..Teresa, get over it! Stop being so petty!

    I’ve been a stay home mom for the past 17 years …

    (TERESA & BROTHER JOEY)Even though they were both on the same page that therapy wasn’t really for them

    They both agreed that they needed to start making new, happy memories

    I know Jacqueline felt a little strange coming to the party and seeing Teresa again, and I really felt for her and know how she felt.

    at the Season 3 reunion when Teresa says that I’m part Gorga, my initial reaction was to say, “No, I’m not.” My response was foolish, of course, but not without a reason.

    with Teresa, every time we make a step forward, it turns into two steps backwards…

    Many of us in the family were questioning her sincerity

    I have never, ever spoken negatively about my cousin Teresa to any tabloid or have given damaging comments to the press. On the contrary, I have spoken highly of Teresa and sympathized with what she has been going through with the negative tabloid frenzy.

    I heard the comments she made trying to pick away at the incredibly supportive and loving bond that my sister Rosie and I share, I can only wonder why she would do that.

    we are all trying to help her and her brother reconcile and get their relationship back on track.

    Teresa wanted to move forward, but she is making that incredibly difficult.

    comments she made trying to pick away at the incredibly supportive and loving bond that my sister Rosie and I share

    My sister and I worked out issues in therapy many years ago, and we know that it helped us tremendously

    OFF SUBJECT FOR A MOMENT, KATHYS CHEAP WINE IS ON SALE. LOL. HERE IS THE LINK: http://www.wineanthology.com/p-5962-red-velvet-kathy-wakile-cosmo.aspx


    When your friends and family stick their necks out for you and try to help, it can make for a challenging relationship.

    It’s hard to turn your back and just forget what has been done and said, whether to your face or behind your back.

    Wouldn’t it be so much easier if there were more honesty, more communication, and far less pettiness and animosity?

    I was certainly skeptical about the shift in sentiment coming from my cousin Teresa, considering that just a day before (to my surprise) she was on Jacqueline’s deck telling her and Caroline that I was fake. (Well, not in those exact words.)

    I wasn’t happy about the tabloid articles, especially that things were said about me that were absolutely untrue and hurtful

    It’s always been very confusing for me to read all the negativity that has been written about me and quoted by Teresa.

    Show me your genuine feelings, good or bad, and I will deal with it. I don’t like to hold a grudge

    It is so sad for me to see that the Manzo and Laurita families seemed to be the sacrificial lambs in this whole process.

    from the time I first met them, they were always trying to help get us all back together again. Let’s hope that they won’t give up on any of us. You can never have too many caring friends.

    Jacqueline addressed something we were all feeling….any one of us spoke to Teresa personally, she would say one thing. Then we would be in a grocery store…and you see this wild headline with her and her family on it…It was very upsetting….

    I am now, and always have been, a loyal family member.

    Teresa would tell us all one thing and then the PRESS would say something completely different.

    The only crazy one here is the person trying to get all of the people around her and the public as whole to believe that when a magazine puts your words in quotes you didn’t really say it and have no control over it. That’s nonsense — own what you say and do.

    I am a proud woman…Teresa, I did not ever go behind your back or actively peruse any position on this show…

    I resent the fact that you continuously put out false stories to the press to try and convince anyone otherwise.

    there will be times I will have to bite my tongue and allow the nonsense to just play out in the tabloids!

    “How they get their money is their business.”

    I never asked my cousin how many times she goes to the mall. That is simply untrue.

    I would never judge a family member

    It would have been wonderful to know that Teresa was just as committed and would agree to go to therapy just because her brother asked her

    Joey was wrong to tell Teresa to go f— off. (THE EXCUSE—->) He let his frustration at not being able to get through to her get the best of him.


    It seems that Gia has her own personal tug of war starting. What a tough age…

    our adult banter may be hard for the younger kids to understand.


    The other difficulty is to have to listen to what is being said about you when you are not around.

    We say things out of anger and frustration. We are human, and our emotions do get the best of us at times. In all fairness though, when I hear juvenile comments about me and Rich I feel hurt just like anyone else.

    When Richie and I were discussing the events of the solstice party, I was giving my opinion about the comments Teresa made to her brother Joey about Melissa.

    Again, that’s my opinion and I’m entitled to have one

    as we all know, anything that I approach Teresa with gets taken the wrong way.

    Richie, on the other hand, has had enough of seeing me continuously try to give Teresa the benefit of the doubt and make excuses for her… I’ve been doing this for years… I would try to help her see another point of view. ..Richie has seen my hurt and disappointment …he’s fed up… His comments come from frustration…I wish I could say the same about some of the other negative and adolescent comments that were made in this episode…

    now I know where the tweets about me looking like a frog came from…Teresa must have thought they were all pretty hysterical as well, because I didn’t see her interrupting Joe when he was way out of line…

    Teresa started to get defensive and started to bring up things that were irrelevant. The bottom line is that in order for a resolution to be successful, both parties have to accept responsibility for their actions. At this point it’s not a matter of who did what to whom. It’s more important to recognize each other’s feelings

    • September 6, 2012 at 1:36 AM

      Hailiesmama, thanks for taking the time to compile her quotes. I really dislike Kathy. She never should have been cast. Teresa should print the quotes and read them to Kathy at the reunion. And she should have someone transcribe every nasty thing Rich and the others has said about her and read it to them at the reunion too. She shouldn’t answer any questions or respond to any accusations… she should just read to each of them all their quotes from the show, their blogs and their interviews.

    Okay, so I know I am a crazy person for noticing this, but Jaime Laurita is not following Jacqueline on twitter anymore… Jaime follows like, 5,000 people and follows EVERYONE, including Joe Gorga, Melissa, Caroline, all the Manzo kids, and Ashlee, but not Jacqueline… Strange, no?

    JUST wanted to point something out.

    I think I have partially figured out Jac Laurita’s comments on the “business ventures” Teresa supposedly stole.

    If you check the Eric Trump foundation website it says that Steven Levine (who was instrumental in casting Celeb Apprentice) cast Teresa Giudice in August…. Ie just before the napa trip….. Interestingly it also says he USED to represent Caroline and JAc……

    The sudden increase in vitriol may come from the fact they expected to receive the opportunity over T

    • September 4, 2012 at 12:58 PM

      Interesting theory. I looked into the Steve Levine thing too. He used to represent Teresa, Jac and Caroline but now only represents Teresa. However, I think he is her literary agent for her books, as she words it, but not her PR person, since she claims she doesn’t have one.

      From Eric Trump’s website:

      “Steve Levine handled the PR for several cast members of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of New Jersey, including Caroline Manzo, Jacqueline Laurita and Teresa Giudice, the latter of whom he continues to represent in various television, media and publishing endeavors.”

    I think that Caroline is the master mind of it all. I think she probably find out that Melissa was a stripper and somehow got her secret out and told Jacqueline to make it look like Teresa started it. On the season finale Teresa was like ” I feel like I’m being set up!”. This whole season has given me a damn headache. What’s so funny is that a lot people that aren’t fans of Teresa are beginning to see that we have been seeing since day 1. Caroline and Kathy have shown their true colors. Melissa’s sisters need to sit their irrevalant asses down some where. They want to be so damn important so bad. If one of them got on the show I’m sure Melissa would have a fit too. I think Teresa is doing the reunion because she’s showing she’s not weak. With her not showing their going to make it look like she has something to hide. She may get her ass grilled out there but, viewers will see the unfairness and it will gain her more fans and support. Season 5 better be a dramatic change because if it’s not I’m going to be over this show. Danielle is the key ingredient to expose Melissa. These women just want to destroy Teresa and once she’s out the way their going to destroy each other. Teresa is a lot stronger than they think and that’s what’s pissing them off. Jacqueline is LOONEY! She is a complete alcoholic and, I think Chris is just tolerating her because of the kids. Kathy want’s to be important so bad she’s doing everything in the book to destroy her cousin. What also makes Kathy twice as a horrible person is her disgusting husband. That man is always in her ear and I believe he has some kind of crush on Teresa. He’s a dirty man and I’m sure he lives off of his wife.Caroline and her kids annoy me definitely Lauren. It doesn’t matter how much weight she loses she will always be a unhappy person. She whines about everything and weight gained or, weight lost she will still look like Cabbage Patch Doll. Team Teresa ALL day, everyday. Karma doesn’t have a expiration date karma will come to those 4 low-down bitches.

    Interesting blog! Do you really think that QueenzOfMedia and the Manzos are friends? Wasn’t it Queenz who got into the ugly Twitter fight with the Manzos and claimed they were racist? That’s the Twitter fight that Lauren accused Queenz of having AIDS and Caroline said she bought the house because of the big tree on the lot. I don’t think that shows that they’re close! Wonder if Caroline thinks that Melissa’s such good people now that her sisters are getting chummy with that nutbag?

    As far as Melissa saying that Kathy meant that Teresa should try harder to fix things with Caroline – first off, how can you fix something when you don’t know why it’s broken? The only thing Teresa has any clue about is the cookbook comments (which is just ridiculous in itself – if anyone else had wrote it, she would have laughed). Teresa has apologized time and time again. How can Caroline be so certain Teresa wasn’t sincere? Additionally, the only thing Teresa can apologize for is that the comments hurt Caroline. She can’t really apologize for the comments themselves because she didn’t mean it in a hurtful way so she has no reason to be sorry.

    As far as Caroline saying that Teresa should have given an apology off camera – well let us count the ways and times the other four should have said and/or done things off camera but didn’t. That’s a bunch of bs because they are ALL guilty of that and in much more malicious ways than an unwarranted apology.

    But we can all talk until we’re blue in the face because she’s already said she doesn’t care what the fans think. I can only hope that Teresa DID lower herself at the reunion and blab about big Al’s affair(s). Let’s face it, since she’s playing with pigs, she’s got to get down in the mud. Pretty sad how they thought they could say anything to Teresa since they knew she wouldn’t say anything that would disclose things that may be hurtful to the other ladies. They KNEW she had a conscience and took advantage of that to the max. Let’s face it, a person can only take so much. Now they’ll be hypocritical again talking about how horrible Teresa is to talk about things that should be kept private. She should remain loyal and faithful until the end of time while they blame Teresa for anything and everything continuing to trash and bash her at every turn.

    How ironic it is that Caroline is mad at Teresa about Dina but she’s doing the SAME exact thing only on a much larger scale. Jacqueline is exploiting her son just like she accused Teresa of doing with her kids. How Teresa is blamed for talking about things in front of her kids yet Teresa’s kids are the ones that are loving to MeJoGo and MeJoGo’s kids are as cold as ice. So who must be saying bad things about who in front of their kids? I can go on and on but I’m so sick of all of this by this point and I’m giving myself a headache by continuing to comment. I always seem to start off by only wanting to address one very specific thing, but one thing leads to another and so on and so on. ARGH!!!

    Jacqueline didn’t start the PLB rumor, that was @Geoaubsmom Jac just didn’t back her up then after the cat was out of the bag, Jac then started to fuel the fire.
    That Geoaubsmom person looked it up on her own. She was new to twitter at the time.
