Teresa Giudice Sells Stories to the Tabloids But Denies It; Melissa Gorga Claims Teresa Called Antonia ‘Ugly’ and Wrote a “Whole Lying Blog About My Daughter”

October 8, 2012

“I used to always cover up for her—I’ve kept a lot of secrets. Not anymore.  When she stops telling lies about me, I’ll stop telling the truth about her.” – Melissa Gorga on Teresa Guiduce, October 1, 2012, Us Weekly

On the August 26, 2012 episode of RHONJ, Joe Giudice admitted to Chris Laurita that Teresa gets paid to give stories to In Touch:

“They write the bull (bleep), and we make the money,” Joe tells Chris Laurita.

“They came to us.”

Chris: “So you put it out.”

Joe: “So what?”

Chris tells Joe that he and Jacqueline were approached by a magazine to dish dirt on Teresa for $50,000, and they refused.

Joe: “You’re a moron.”

The following in a recap by Vulture of when Caroline called out Teresa (for the second time) in season 4 for a having a deal with the tabloids, which in listed on page 17 in the federal indictment handed down on July 29, 2013:

Tre: I love you.

Caroline: You’re lying.

Tre: I’m not lying.

Caroline: You have a seven-cover deal.

Tre: You’re lying.

Caroline: You’re lying.

Tre: I’m not lying.

Caroline: You are lying to my face right now.

At which point Caroline calls Tre a “fraud” and a “disgrace.” We find out over on the men’s side that Teresa planted a (false) story in a July In Touch about possibly having a baby boy. We learn from Juicy that Teresa did get paid for the tabloid stories. Joe Guidice’s attitude is more or less “So what? Your wives would do it too.” We also learn here that Jacqueline was offered $50,000 by a magazine to write a story about Tre and turned it down. We also learn that Juicy Joe called Chris Laurita “shady” to some businessman and they fight for two seconds but then make up. They all kiss each other. More than they need to, really.

Tre turns down a bend in the road and resorts to Ophelia-style non-sequiturs when Caroline says to her face that she used to tell her to stop hanging out with the rest of the women to prove her friendship: “Just because your family has problems,” Tre blurts out. Irrelevant?

Manzo sick burn: “Hanging out with your family was the biggest blessing because all the things that didn’t make sense began to make sense.” Oww.

Eventually, Joe Guidice yells “Caroline!” from across the room, and Chris Manzo poises for attack (“If he fucking hurts my mother, I’ll fucking jump across the room and hit that motherfucker.”)

Albert Manzo does not seem to belong on this show, and not only because his flesh is not the sickly orange of a hormone-grown low-end grocery carrot: “I usually just sit in the back and pretend to be sleeping or not paying attention.” Eventually, Lauren comes to her mom’s aid.

At one point Teresa grabs Kathy’s face for emphasis.

“I don’t even know how to lie,” Tre says, and everyone basically snarfs. At least, I snarfed. This fight about old shit has actually been going on for half an hour now, and my brain cells are depleting worse than if I hooked myself up to an IV of 151 rum.

“He was an instigur.” Tre says at one point. Pauses, thinks. “He was an instigator.”

Finally Juicy Joe puts an end to all of this by announcing he has important business to attend to and the Giudices must depart. Tre shrieks something intellegible.

“She’s such a piece of shit,” says Lauren. “Why did you two start talking?” Melissa asks Caroline, incredulous. “Don’t talk!” Melissa wins for the only sane line uttered this week.

Like that moment in Fatal Attraction when the erstwhile-drowned Glenn Close springs up from the full bathtub, Tre pops back in for one final round of brief crazy, then she leaves. Joe Gorga says that he’ll continue to try to support Tre emotionally, blood being thicker than water and all, and the Gorgas prepare to leave as well.

The funniest thing about the Kathy face-grabbing incident is that every time Kathy says that she didn’t like it, Tre does it again. Caroline cries in an empty room. Yahtzee.

Teresa has adamantly denied being paid by the tabloids for stories, even writing a blog about “how it works.” In her June 12, 2012 blog, Cover Girl, Teresa said that she got paid for the photo shot and nothing else:

Here’s the deal though: you’re only ever paid for photographs. The magazine has to pay for photos no matter what: either they do a photo shoot with you, or they pay for shots from a professional photographer who just happened to catch you walking down the street, or god forbid, the paparazzi. Here’s how I feel about that: if the magazine is going to run a story about you anyway and you have no control about what the story will be, what will be on the cover, even how they might twist your own quotes or use ugly pictures of you, why not get paid for a professional photo shoot? I love, love, love photographs… especially of me and my girls. You’ve seen my Christmas cards; I go over the top with photographs. Now suddenly magazines are offering to give me gorgeous photos (that I get to keep) and they’ll pay me. If I say no, they’re going to do the story anyway, but the photos will probably not be pretty, like the recent cover of US Weekly with my arms crossed when I look all mad. Who wants that?

So Jacqueline and I were all excited to have beautiful shots of us and our babies in In Touch and get paid for them! And that one actually was a pretty nice story, no drama or crazy cover tags. But maybe that’s because we never made it to the cover. We got bumped for a story about Brat Pitt and Jennifer Aniston. No need to have a dramatic cover sentence for us because we weren’t the cover.

It’s weird how it works: you don’t always get paid even for photo shoots. People magazine doesn’t pay for instance (unless you’re Brad Pitt I’m guessing). But when I was asked to pose for a photo shoot with my girls in their playroom, for back-to-school clothes with Alex McCord and her boys, and with my girls for Halloween in People magazine, I did them all for free because I love taking pictures! You don’t have any say about the photos of course, and they can still pick a bad one, but I still think taking pictures is fun, especially when I get to keep them for free.

At some point the photos of me and my kids must have been selling well because I started to get asked more often, and started to appear on covers I was never asked about at all. And of course, the stories about me got crazier. To date, I’ve been on the cover of over 25 magazines. That’s just crazy to me; I know actors and models would kill for that much exposure. But I didn’t ask for it. They put me on the cover because apparently magazines sell really well when I’m on them. I’m not sure if that’s flattering or not since the stories aren’t typically very flattering.

The truth is Jacqueline and Caroline aren’t on the covers of magazines every week presumably because it wouldn’t make the magazine sell. They aren’t missing from the magazines because they take some high road and say no. They aren’t wanted. I’m not saying being wanted is better or somehow desirable because in most cases it isn’t, but to say that I have any control over it is false. And they know it.

So on this episode they were all acting so shocked at the story they said I put out. First of all, they know I didn’t put it out. Yes, for that one I posed for the photos rather than have random street shots of me used. And I wanted some photos of me and Gabriella since she’s so quiet and not on the show a lot. During the shoot they asked me some questions, and I answered them. Some of them, not even all of them. And I didn’t say anything bad about anyone.


So now you know how it works. I never did. I do get paid for photo shoots sometimes, sometimes I do them and don’t get paid, but I like pictures. And here’s another thing: if they pay you for the shoot, they shoot a million pictures in tons of different clothes so they can spread them out and use them in several different magazines without having to pay you again. I think I’ve only ever done 4 or 5 photo shoots that they’ve used in the over 20 covers (I can’t even count how many times I’ve appeared in the magazines. I don’t even read them anymore…) And I do say no A LOT. I’m busy, it’s not a lot of money, and I don’t need it.

Regardless of the photos, I can’t control what’s on the cover or when, and I usually hate what they say. Even though I love the picture of my wedding vow renewals with Joe, they wrote right over my wedding dress: “Despite Joe’s drunken bullying, Teresa refuses to leave him.” Did I put that out there? Of course not.

In her June 12, 2012 blog, A Real ‘Rockstar’, Melissa criticized Teresa for the In Touch magazine article featured on season 4 episode 7:

“I guess in her mind, there is a difference between what she is willing to share with the tabloids for money and what she will share with her friends and family. Please take note, if there are constantly stories in the tabloids, the show is going to address it. If you don’t want these issues to be brought up on the show, then don’t address them in the tabloids.”

In this same episode Melissa accused Teresa of not being loyal to family because of the In Touch article:

“I get it—you need to make money, [so] make your money—but at the same time, you need to be loyal to your family. Maybe she can go see a therapist about that. I’m sorry, that’s how I feel.” – Melissa Gorga, Season 4 Episode 7

The In Touch cover above features a photo of Teresa and her children along with sensational headlines. Her children should be off limits and should never be featured on tabloid covers, especially knowing the sensational stories inside. If she wants her face on the cover to help build and sell her brand, fine, but she needs to protect her children from public scrutiny and humiliation. She also needs to restrict the way in which Bravo films her children. She should have final say on what airs, or she should not allow Bravo to film them at all.

In October 2012, Melissa accused Teresa of calling her daughter, Antonia, ugly, but Teresa denied the accusation:

According to Melissa in her interview with Us Weekly published on October 2, 2012, when Antonia, her daughter, got accepted to a modeling agency, Teresa said: “I heard Antonia got accepted. Yeah the ugly kids always get picked.”

According to Teresa in a response posted on her website on October 8, 2012 (see below): “And Antonia, don’t ever, ever let anyone tell you you are anything but BEAUTIFUL! Know how I know? Know how everyone knows this horrible story about me calling you “ugly” isn’t true? Because you look just like me when I was a kid! To be honest, you look almost more like me than my own daughters… I wasn’t trying to make this about me–I was only trying to point out that it’s ridiculous to claim I called Antonia “ugly” when we look alike–that would be like calling myself ugly. She’s beautiful, I love her and my nephews.”

Teresa Giudice and her niece, Melissa Gorga's daughter Antonia Gorga

Teresa wrote a blog on her website to give her version of the story and posted the two photos above, comparing herself to Antonia at the age:

My Darling BEAUTIFUL Niece
By Teresa Giudice, TeresaGiudice.com
October 8, 2012 at 2:21 PM

There were another million crazy hurtful untrue stories about me this week and I ignore them all, but one I can’t ignore. Again, Melissa is using our children in public, telling lies about them, to try and hurt me. Please Melissa, say whatever you want about me, but leave innocent children out of this!

I’m not even talking about her ridiculous claim that she’s leaving her “dream house” because she doesn’t want her kids to go to school with my kids. Our kids are all in school now and they don’t go to the same school already. She can stay in her dream house. We all know that’s not the issue…

But while I can protect my own kids from her lies and keep telling them that their uncle and aunt love them, I don’t have any access to my own niece and nephews anymore. Someday Antonia will be old enough to make her own decisions and hopefully I’ll have a relationship with her and her brothers then, but I have to answer the INSANE LIE that I ever, ever said anything mean about Antonia.

Someday when Antonia is able to Google her own name, she’ll find the evil story her mother told to a magazine about me calling her “ugly” (I can only pray Melissa’s words were taken out of context by the magazine and I hope Melissa sets the record straight with Antonia privately, even though she didn’t publicly) but I want Antonia to also see my response: it’s absolutely NOT TRUE. I adore you Antonia, and I adore Gino and Joey. You are my blood. You are Gorgas. You are beautiful inside and out! Zia Teresa will always, ALWAYS love you and always be here for you with open arms. My children love you as well. They always treated you like their own sister growing up since you didn’t have any. I hope one day you’ll be able to hang out again.

And Antonia, don’t ever, ever let anyone tell you you are anything but BEAUTIFUL! Know how I know? Know how everyone knows this horrible story about me calling you “ugly” isn’t true? Because you look just like me when I was a kid! To be honest, you look almost more like me than my own daughters. You are like a daughter to me and will always be in my heart. I love you Antonia! xx

Update on Monday, October 8, 2012 at 5:14 PM by Teresa Giudice

Believe me, I hate to leave a message for my nieces and nephews on the Internet, but I have no other way to get through to them, and at least this will be here, permanently, for them to read with their own eyes someday. I meant every word of it. I don’t care who believes me or doesn’t, this is how I feel.

And this wasn’t just a tiny rumor, the accusation was in a national cover story and you and I both know Melissa bought boxes of that magazine, so yes, Antonia will one day see it. I wasn’t trying to make this about me–I was only trying to point out that it’s ridiculous to claim I called Antonia “ugly” when we look alike–that would be like calling myself ugly. She’s beautiful, I love her and my nephews. Visit us all in 15 years and hopefully you will find one big happy family. xx

I know I’ll laugh about this cover story one day. Actually, the red dresses did make me laugh right away.

On October 8, 2012, Melissa responded by tweeting: “Did T seriously write a whole lying blog about my daughter? This is why I’m moving. Always about her. #enoughalready”

I am the victim

I’m not so sure Antonia looks ‘just like’ Teresa when she was a kid (I think Milania has Teresa’s features and will grow up to look a lot like her mother — photo below). Antonia resembles the Gorga side of the family but I think she also equally resembles the Marco side of her family. Melissa certainly will have something more to say about it.

    Thank you so much for posting this in its entirety along with the side by side pictures of Antonia and Teresa as a young girl. They do look a great deal alike and how beautiful they both are. When reading this you can almost hear Teresa speaking – sorry, I do believe she writes her own blogs – she may have a proofreader and some one who “cleans” it up for her, but these are her words. And I believe she means every word of it.

    It probably would be a good idea to attach Melissa’s tweet in response to this – it shows just how ugly she is inside. Teresa is not making this all about her again – I believe that Teresa feels she really does not have any other recourse than to react by writing this post on her website. If she were to make any other personal attempt to address not only what Melissa said in USWeekly but the despicable things she said about worrying what Teresa’s daughters would do to Antonia when they got older, it would have been rebuffed. I also think Teresa knows the family ties are irreparable and she has accepted it.

    This is truly heartbreaking. A family torn apart and it will never be repaired.

      I understand what you’re saying but, I think Bravo, in a twisted bizzaro world, did Teresa a favor. It’s obvious that Melissa and JoGo were always like this, Bravo just expedited things and instead of Teresa being tortured by them for decades she is now aware of what they truly are, monsters masquerading as people. Bravo ripped the band-aid off…

        I know, and these also grammar and style tools in word as well. But my take on that is if she has a professional taking her thoughts and putting them in a better form its so people will be able to understand what Teresa is thinking and feeling. I don’t have a problem with that. As for Melissa saying “it’s not fair when u have a professional writer….”. Huh? Fair? Wtf is she talking about? She can hire a professional writer too. I’m not sure how far her “gig” money would stretch, but …. She could. So who cares. If its in the interest of getting ur point across, u should do anything u can do be as clear as possible.

      • October 9, 2012 at 10:33 AM

        Do you seriously think Teresa writes her own blog? Wow!

        Yes, there is Grammar Check and Spell Check – but, it takes more than that to write the blogs she has been posting as her own.

          October 9, 2012 at 11:00 AM

          I’m sure Teresa uses some professional help now and then, but I want to point out that writing in a second language is sometimes much easier than speaking it. Teresa got through college, so she must be able to write for herself. I don’t see any special genius in her blogs, just a frustrated woman trying to fend off vicious attacks from people who claimed at some point to care about her.

    I would be outraged if someone took a picture of my son and plastered it in a national blog = just my opinion. I just feel like a child has rights…..

    Do you think Teresa took Antonia right to privacy away? Antonia did not sign up for Bravo?

    Granted I have plastered my sons’ photos all over my twitter, myspace, fb = but he is mine….. where do we draw the line of who can post pictures of someone elses child?

    **pondering out loud…..

    • Jeannie5233
      October 8, 2012 at 8:39 PM

      Chris –

      I understand your point – there comes a time when privacy – especially of children – should be taken seriously.

      if you go on Bravo’s own website you can find alot of pictures of most of the Housewives children – not only NJ but the other franchises too. There are numerous pictures of the Gorga kids as well as the Giudices, Lauritas, Manzos, etc.

      While Antonia did not sign up for Bravo, her parents did and they allow Antonia to be filmed – quite alot actually.

      I truly, in my heart of hearts, believe Teresa feels she has no other choice after the accusations Melissa has made and the statement said last night she was afraid of what Teresa’s children would do to Antonia when they got older. I find that FAR more offensive. That is just my opinion though.

      • October 8, 2012 at 8:45 PM

        ohhh.. i did not know Bravo had photos of the kids…..that does mean Bravo owns the rights to the photos and the parents agreed…..you are correct…..

            Was from Antonia’s 6th birthday which Bravo filmed and posted on Pintrest

            But basically, the Pink one i found on Pintrest and was from Antonia’s 6th birthday -filmed by Bravo. The Bread one was Getty images and supposedly taken at a red carpet for Kathy…..
            As mentioned, the Joe Gorga one is on Bravo.

          Chris- I’m typically a zealot when it comes to our rights to privacy. Especially at this time in history when we’re losing those rights rapidly. But in the case of Antonias picture on tre’s blog, i don’t have a problem with that because we can find pictures of her on bravos site as well as on Melissa’s twitter TL.

      The pictures Teresa used were ones she found from bravo’s page, & either MeGo’s twitter or Facebook page. I understand what you mean, but its not a random person posting the pics, its her Aunt.

      October 8, 2012 at 8:52 PM

      I agree with you Chris. We do see Mel’s kids on the episodes sometimes, and she does post pics of them on her twitter but maybe her and Joe have a personal agreement or limitations that they have set about how much they want to show their children or what pics they want out there. As a parent, I see what you are saying. I LOVE that Teresa posted this letter, and is FINALLY saying something on behalf of the kids; however, if it was me, I probably would have chose a big family pic that had everyone with the grandparents. For example, the big family picture they all took together in the previous season or no picture at all. Been following you on twitter and think you do an awesome job! 🙂

    • October 8, 2012 at 9:18 PM

      I understand what you’re saying but Melissa has provided photos on the Bravo blog and religiously on her twitter. She has supplied pictures of Teresa’s children to Bravo (the mani peddi day) and of the Srn Gorgas – think birthday parties.
      I wouldn’t like people posting picture of my children though. But I wouldn’t put my kids on reality tv.

      I think Melissa took her daughter’s right to privacy away when she used her to try to make Teresa look bad.

      And once Melissa put her own daughter’s appearance “into play,” so to speak, I think Teresa had every right to put the pictures up as evidence that she wouldn’t have ever referred to Antonia as “ugly” — as her mother claims — if for no other reason than the fact that there is a strong physical resemblance between Tre and Antonia.

      And, of course, it should be noted that Antonia’s parents have widely disseminated pictures of her on the Internet, i.e. on her birthday, etc.

      Congrats on your recent arrest scoop, BTW. It didn’t escape me that you were the first to find this, but I’m glad that you are being giving credit.

    Without Melissa, T has a life and career. Without T, Melissa has no career and then no life. That singing bit on the reunion was AWKWARD, but I thought T yelling bring me clams! Chicken cutlets! Etc was hilarious! You know, as inarticulate as T seems, she’s got confidence. With confidence comes a certain charisma. This is why most people like T, even though Bravo blog comments and polls try to show otherwise. Melissa has nothing. Sorry, but it’s true. Her only schtick is bashing T. Between watching her in her “studio,” the Great Adventure clip and the two lines she sang last night, it is 1000% clear Melissa has no talent and no charisma or confidence. T on the other hand, she’s got all three. This is why they hate her.

      That is so true. I really am AMAZED that her singing was such a focus of the show. Her voice is mediocre. I mean, that what I’ve seen from the three times they showed her singing without autotune.

        We dont have CPS here it would be DYFS. DYFS NJ? Lol. Where does this “wife of” live that she thinks DYFS resources should be used for this purpose? I’m actually getting a bit peeved. Because I think “fans” like that do these things to curry favor w the people they support on the show. And it’s ridiculous. I only question whether “wife” came up w the idea herself or if someone gave her the idea. DYFS has more important things to do than to investigate whether Antonia is a public person or not. Oh lord!

        But, just in case I won’t use her kids in rhocomix… Lol. Promise.

      Chris –
      Read my post above yours. The person claims to be an “officer of the court”, saying she will not stand by while this kind of abuse is going on….something to that effect. Idk….I’m guessing she pre-blocked you because of your post about MeGo’s arrest warrant. From what I’ve heard, she trolls tl’s & blogs, looking for pro-teresa comments, then proceeds to start crap with them. I’ve heard she gets pretty bad with the attacks. I’m afraid to look at her tl! Lol!

          The girlfriend shouldn’t publicly tweet. It’s the same with Facebook – whilst you own the account, your information is public. It’s not the same as personal communication. Isn’t blocking people almost defeating the purpose of tweeting? You circle gets smaller and your message gets out to fewer people.

      She called CPS? On who? Teresa? For writing a blog that says how beautiful her niece is and how much she loves her? She has also posted EVERY article that ever discussed the Giudices bankruptcy, their house being sold, the auction of their belongings, etc. ALL of it. And recently, too – like within the last four days.

      There is a picture of Melissa and Joey at the shore house, Joe Gorga pushed Richie in the pool on top of his daughter. They were all drinking. The picture of Joe and Melissa daughter showed a very frighten child. It appeared no one was quick to comfort the child. Sounds like child endangerment. This is a photo for all to see. They have alot of room to talk.

      • October 9, 2012 at 12:44 AM

        Antonia barely escaped injury when Joe Gorga threw Richie into the pool (in the photo above, she is crying while trying to swim safety away from Richie, who nearly landed on top of her).

    I think most of us feel frustrated by Melissa’s nonsense and the lack of control we have in righting this wrong. We sit back, shaking our heads in disbelief. I think it’s safe to say that most of us here are smart, educated, insightful, compassionate human beings and we have zero control of this out of control situation!! We have watched this bashfest for 2 years now and it seems to be getting worse with each passing day! This is becoming reminiscent of the Taylor Armstrong “Ninja Pool Fight” story, complete with outlandish and desperate storytelling. How sad for this woman to make these heinous claims against her husbands sister, her daughters aunt, her inlaws daughter! Disgust isn’t strong enough a word to describe how I feel. I’m angry! Melissa Gorga is a liar! It’s not an assumption, it’s a fact. Each time she calls Teresa out in the public eye, I want to scream. I want so desperately to make sure Melissa has everything coming to her that she deserves. How dare she take advantage of Teresa’s loyalty to her family and continue spewing this garbage!!! The fact that her husband supports this “Character assassination” is beyond repulsive. As the mother of a grown son and daughter who are extremely close I can’t begin to understand the depths of disappointment and humiliation the Sr. Gorga’s must feel. Knowing their only son has allowed his wife to sell HIS family down the river, all for a shot at fame. SMH!!

    • October 9, 2012 at 11:20 AM

      Dubbalicious, I could not agree more with most of what you said. At this point, everything that can be said about Melissa and Joe Gorga has been said. We can continue to make the same comments over and over again about their lies, manipulations, their lack of empathy and ethics. But you stated perfectly how we, as viewers, feel in terms of watching this happen and being helpless to do anything about it. We can’t even set the record straight because the Bravo machine, Andy and his media buddies, Melissa and her Twitter army, Jacqueline and Caroline backing her up…it’s too big. It’s like a hurricane.
      I’m starting to think that being angry and getting upset about this – although justified – is not the way to go about it. Logically, you can’t combat hate with more hate, anger with more anger. That only feeds the negativity and doubles the amount of hate and anger in the world. I have begun wishing love and peace on the Gorgas because it is the only thing that will help this whole situation. It’s what Teresa wants and even if Melissa gets what is coming to her, that will not right the wrongs that she has done. It will likely only drive a bigger wedge into that already broken family. By surrounding them in love maybe there is a chance that at some point they will put the weapons down and just stop. Just end it.
      My heart is so broken for Teresa and her parents. We all know that Teresa is not a saint. But she knows what love is. She knows what loyalty and respect are. She knows where to draw the line. The depths of hurt that Melissa and Joe Gorga are willing to attempt (and accomplish) show that they have no idea of the definitions of these words, no boundaries and no consciences. There is nothing they won’t do, no human they won’t include in their campaign to obliterate Teresa. They can’t even see that they have hurt their own very young daughter in their most recent attempt. That alone proves everything.

      And I have to imagine that people who support Melissa and Joe….are just like them.

    It is a crying shame that the older Gorga’s have to spend their last years in this turmoil rather than spending family time with everyone.Now Holidays are spit. Joe Gorga and Melissa Marco should be so ashamed of themselves. They are depriving their children of memories of their grandparents who probably won’t be around much longer.

      Sweetly mised- “wife..” protected her tweets bc of all the heat she was taking about her insane notion that DYFS should be her little tool to curry favor with someone on her last 3 minutes of her 15 minutes of fame.

      And I agree. On the microscopic chance that tre said that, no one knew. Until Melissa told a national news outlet. Good going, Melissa! Now ur sweet daughter – who jay mohr even said was the prettiest child he’d ever seen – will have to hear that as one of the punctuation points of her mothers brush w celebrity.

      This makes me so sad. I remember the pics from the shore – antonia and Milania (besties) playing together, etc. adults ruining a child’s innocence. V sad.

  19. October 8, 2012 at 11:30 PM

    Let’s say if this is true. why on earth would she take this to a rag mag. Her child will see this. Just like Joey bringing up a private conversation. If T felt that way, at least she was being honest.
    I don’t know when this was said, but if it was before filming, then I can see how T is mad that M acts all goody two shoe. If someone said this abt my child, hecks no. don’t care who ur married too, there could be no pretending.
    I don’t believe T said this. However, I can see her saying it about M.
    Regardless, this only tells me what I thought all along. M is out to make T look bad. Or worse, for those of u who say she is a bad person.
    To think M got paid for this…ugh..
    M tweeted abt T’s response, “this is why we are moving”
    I don’t know if T purposely posted pics to say A looks like her, but u know what M, that’s what u get when u drag kids in this. If it wasn’t said on camera abt kids, we don’t need to know. Have some damm dignity and self worth. Tree also.

    This is all so predictable coming from the calculated Melissa. Melissa has talked so much crap about Teresa’s finances and “we pay our bills” comments that this whole moving story involving the safety and well-being of her children is deplorable. She knows damn well that Teresa loves her children. The real problem is that Melissa is pawning her kids as the scapegoat ruse to deflect from the real reason they are moving – FINANCES!

    They are trying to sell it, it hasn’t had any bites so the next predictable avenue is foreclosure which Teresa will be the crutch for since they wouldn’t have to move if Melissa didn’t fear for herself and her children from their evil SIL – Aunt.

    This female will stoop to any level to get the last laugh at Teresa. I actually pity her. If only she had Teresa’s strength…..

Why is he allowing his ignorant wife take his own daughter down? Ok meho & joho you are not taking teresa down. Do they not see they are taking their daughter down! Antonia is the victum not meho or joho!!! I gotta lay down! I cant wow!

    • October 9, 2012 at 9:47 AM

      I agree. In 10 years, Antonia is going to be able to Google herself, find this story and she will know that it was her own mother who revealed this to the world. Whether it is true or not (and it is VERY doubtful that it is true), it was still Melissa who ran to a tabloid with it. Antonia has to live with that. Just like it was Melissa and Joe who revealed to the public the alleged “gold digger” conversation which had happened three months earlier in a private conversation between siblings. THEY chose to bring that out. And Joe had no problem putting that information out there about his wife because it was an opportunity to make Teresa look bad. Just like this Antonia situation is. The Gorgas only do things that might have a personal benefit for them. They don’t stop and think about how it might make THEM look bad or how the innocent people in the crosshairs might be affected. Their plan to reveal the gold digger conversation was not well thought out because they were STILL putting the idea out there that Melissa would leave Joe for a richer man. Melissa choosing to reveal this alleged comment from Teresa makes HER look like a bad mother and has the potential to hurt her daughter down the line. Antonia could have lived her entire life not knowing about this (not that it even happened but you get my point).

  27. October 9, 2012 at 7:40 AM

    Can someone clear something up for me because obviously I can’t watch it. Did Melissa say she didn’t want her kids to go to school with Teresa’s kids because they will bully them or was it the Teresa association? Either way, it’s terrible but more so if it’s the kids – should an Aunt really talk about her nieces that way?

    • October 9, 2012 at 7:48 AM

      I’ll have to go back and watch it again Sackem but I think she implied that the Giudice children would bully the Gorga children and bash their mother. Melissa bashes Teresa on the show and to the tabloids, but that doesn’t count in Melissa’s world.

These offensive remariks that will now follow those little ones for the rest of their lives are repugnant Hello?!?!?!? Where is the public outcry for that? It is despicable.

        Remember Joe Marco said he would “die” for Gia? Where the hell is he? What kind of person allows his nieces – forget Teresa – to have things like that said on the Reunion?

        Why doesn’t he tell his “f@@cking wife” (did any one else catch that in the preview for next week when he is responding to Joe G – he called Melissa his “f@@cking wife”) to BACK OFF THE KIDS.

        These people – they will get their due and when it comes, God only knows I am not usually someone who sees satisfaction when bad things happen to people, but I will definitely celebrate in my own way.

          The sickest thing is that it is a flat out lie…she told numerous stories about why they are selling their house. Melissa is a compulsive liar. She puts these stories out to gain sympathy, but normal people think she is just sick to make these type of statements.

    Last night Joe Marco (nee Gorga) tweeted:

    @joegorga Itscoming an its going 2 bethe funniest shit u have ever see who will watchRT @ashlovesmia: @joegorga u need a spin off show! Ur hilalrious 7:56pm – 8 Oct 12 – Details

    One more example of how this man is so full of HIMSELF – while I highly doubt this is true, I do remember a little while back there were small seeds being planted around the internet that there might be thoughts of giving the Whorgas their own show. (perhaps Gorga peeps trying to drum up interest?) Actually, I do remember Melissa, when asked if she would do a spinoff, she replied with a very animated Yes. But, then again, she also answered in a different interview when asked if she had to choose between the show and her music she answered ” . . .definitely the music. . . “. – Um, we all know that’s not true – the music wouldn’t give her the exposure she craves.

    I don’t know – maybe this is another ploy to try and drum up support from fans to rally round and demand a spinoff featuring just Joe and Melissa and get Teresa off. It won’t work though!

    This is a little off topic but… Last night I was re-watching the Christening scene and at the very end, the senior Mr. Gorga says to Joe (while outside waiting for the cars and his son is screaming in his face) “You only think about yourself!”. That was WELL before we Bravo viewers saw anything of Melissa and Joe, before ANY of the season 3 and 4 gang up on Teresa happened. All we had seen of them at that point was a 9 minute-long verbal and physical brawl. Mr. Gorga, however, had known his son for an entire lifetime. He also said to Joe (in response to Joe Gorga screaming at his father that he is his son) “And I’m proud of you!”. It seems that is a Gorga trait – telling your loved ones how much you care about them even when they are treating you like absolute dirt. How many times have we seen Teresa do the very same thing? As her brother is saying ungodly things to her or about her, she still tells him that he is her brother and how much she loves him. At the reunion, even as Melissa attacked Teresa mercilessly, Teresa STILL managed to tell Melissa that she loves her.
    I find that absolutely heartbreaking because people want to call Teresa “fake” but that one comment from her father shows precisely where she gets that trait from and how she was raised. It proves that Teresa is real and these are her real feelings we are seeing/reading. What saddens me is that Joe Gorga has never done such a thing (that we’ve seen). That beautiful trait that the elder Gorgas clearly worked to instill in their two children only stuck in one of them. And Mr. Gorga telling his only son on camera that he thinks about nothing but himself should be the proof that every viewer needs about what Melissa and Joe’s intentions were getting on this show. Mr. Gorga does not have an agenda. He does not care what tabloids say or who is more popular. He doesn’t care about Bravo’s storylines or how he looks to the viewing audience. He cares about his precious family, his values, and the life that he and Mrs. Gorga worked so hard to create; the one their son and daughter-in-law have destroyed.

    That one sentence was one of the most revealing moments of truth in RHONJ history. And it absolutely broke my heart.

    There is an article on Radar Online that was published yesterday about Gia. A source is talking about how she is getting bullied at school & how Teresa had to go to school to talk to the teachers. The source is also saying how Teresa is unwilling to give up the show because she likes the attention. They are also claiming that Gia is getting involved with what is going on with twitter & tumblr. A family insider says they are worried about Gia’s welfare. The source went on to say how Gia knows to much at her age.

    This crap really needs to stop. I feel sorry for all of these kids, and Joe Gorga stuck between his wife and his sister. Pitiful for everyone involved. My mother is dead and all of my siblings died at young ages. I’m telling you, life is too damn short to be acting line this!!!!
