Aren't we supposed to be all about love and light this season? I thought that was official Real Housewives of New Jersey press tour memo?
Right out of the gate, Melissa Gorga's first blog has some pretty harsh comments for Teresa Giudice. In addition to citing reasons why she doesn't feel comfortable with Antonia spending time at the Giudice house (Juicy gymnastics anyone?!), Melissa continues to place blame for the family feud on Teresa's bespangled, feathered, and bronzed shoulders. Oh girl… the victim act is so last season! This season is all about renaissance. Get with the program!
And as I said before; I refuse to take sides on this ridiculous feud anymore. They are BOTH at fault and both ridiculous. The Gorgadices need to grow up and act like adults. Put the famewhoring aside and stop with the finger-pointing!

Chapter 1: Melissa Still Blames Teresa For Everything
Teresa and I hadn’t spoken in a year. I simply couldn’t stomach listening to one more lie. The distrust was just too deep. My emotions were hard set, and they weren’t going to change overnight. As far as I knew, she felt the same way. Then Antonia sent the letter to Milania. Suddenly, Teresa was overwhelmed with missing her brother and niece. She invited Antonia to their house for a play date.
I want the cousins to be close. That’s how I grew up. We moved to Montville in the first place so they could go to school together. The only reason they’re not as close as they could be is because Teresa had herself involved in a lot of wrong doings that brought hurt to our family.
Case in point — the lies at the end of last season. It's not fair for her to say, 'Oh, poor kids,' when she was the one involved in destroying the trust we had just started to build again. I almost had to laugh when I saw Teresa say I should apologize to her. For what, exactly? Did I miss something?
Chapter 2: Melissa's Valid Reasons For Being Nervous About Antonia Going To Teresa's
Would you send your child to a home where you knew for a fact that the parents were openly involved in spreading terrible lies about you? If you knew, for example, that your child might hear you called a stripper or a gold digger, would you rush her there and feel comfortable with her alone there for the day?
I don't want Antonia exposed to lies and insults about her Mom by her other relatives. And I knew she would be. In this one episode alone, Joe called me 'Horsey Face' and a 'skank ass beeatch.' I don’t know which is worse. But I know it's just wrong and Teresa didn’t correct him. He even spoke to his six-year-old daughter directly when calling me a name, it's not like she just overhead them.
It was also sad when I saw Teresa and Gia discussing my daughter’s supposed birthday party with Milania. Why they are discussing it three months later is beyond me, but that’s not fair to tell Milania she wasn’t invited to her cousin’s party, when it’s a complete lie.
Chapter 3: On How Coordinating A Play Date Needed A UN Diplomat:
I wanted the play date with Milania to be at mutual place. I think that's pretty understandable for all the reasons I just explained.
Why was she [Teresa] pretending to be nice, when she said she didn’t “give a sh-t about me?” Why was she acting like she suddenly wanted to fix things when she hadn’t lifted a finger in a year? It just felt completely insincere.Her sudden change was so weird and confusing, I was thrown by it. I focused on helping the kids make jewelry.
Chapter 4: On How Teresa's Parent Choices Are "Questionable"
To each her own, as far as parenting goes, but I try my hardest not to involve my kids in very mature matters. That’s not my style. My kids don’t have the slightest idea what’s going on with the Giudices. They’re too young to understand the complicated, ugly situation. I’d certainly never confide in my seven-year-old and ask her for personal advice, as if she were my best friend! She's a child, not a friend.
Chapter 5: Jr. Mafia Joe Sucks (Amen sister!)
Joe Giudice can’t control his mouth. We all know that. He is the Godfather of my firstborn child, and he called me a skank on national television. How to do I take the certificate back?
Chapter 6: Teresa Is STILL To Blame For Everything
[Teresa] says, 'I love my brother. I want to fix it.' Of course she loves Joe! Everybody loves Joe. If she really wanted to fix it, she would have picked up the phone months ago, way before we could all see her 'sincere heartfelt sadness.'
She wouldn’t trash me and undermine my relationship with her kids. She never has to worry that when her kids come over here I’ll say horrible things about her. And yet she wants to be 'the bigger person.' Well, I wasn’t ready to forgive or forget. If that makes me the smaller person, so be it.
So… anyone else believe Melissa has "moved on"? This is quite the blog to open the season. I know she is supposed to be reflecting on how she felt at the time, but everyone else's blogs seem quite a bit more balanced!
