Both Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga get on my last nerve with their one-upping and back-and-forth and white lies on Real Housewives of New Jersey. Petty, petty, petty! However, I don't know what is more humorous…Tre's very thinly veiled insults or Melissa's constant high road antics as if she's never stooped to her sister-in-law's level.
After Tre revisited her
table trash can flipping ways at "her" gym with brother Poison on this week's episode, Melissa is all about addressing the situation in her weekly Bravo blog. Don't worry…she also takes plenty of opportunity to promote her book Love Italian Style!
Melissa writes, "What I saw from my husband’s conversation with his sister is that Teresa can dish it out, but she can’t take it. Come on girl, toughen up! I take it all the time. On Season 3, she mocked my music and called me a gold digger. On Season 4, she said I’d leave my husband for a richer man and I was questioned by her about being a stripper. We already know I’m a bad daughter-in-law. I don’t know how many more negative things I can be accused of."

Of the watching the scene, Melissa recalls, "During their conversation at the gym, Joe stayed calm and just threw a little shade back at Teresa. And she freaked out, threw water, flipped a trash can and stormed out. He gave her a taste of her own medicine, and she did not like it."
The reality star also takes particular offense to the term her sister-in-law used to refer to her husband. She blogs, "I’m sorry, but is there a more obnoxious phrase than 'pussy whipped?' I’ll die saying that a man who treats his wife with respect, who is loving, supportive, and faithful, and who comes home every night is NOT pussy whipped. In my book, that man is a king and his wife is his queen. My marriage is strong because of our mutual respect and devotion to each other. Joe and I have the relationship I always fantasized about since I was a little girl."
Moving on, Melissa "the author' shares, "A lot of the episode was about my father. He was an incredible man, a loving father, and a great provider. As a husband, he wasn’t the best. It was a hard decision to write about him. But Love Italian Style is about my marriage, and my parents’ marriage is part of that story. In any memoir, the writer has to include a chapter or two about her childhood…The heartbreaks of those years made me who I am now. So Chapter 1 in my book is called, “The First Man in My Life,” about my father. I sought a partner like my father in many ways — ambitious, funny, an adoring parent — but his opposite in others. He didn’t come home every night. I was determined to find a man who did. And I found that man and more in Joe."
Melissa concludes, "Marriage has so many sides to it. The diamond ring Joe gave me when we got engaged really is a symbol for our marriage. We try to shine on all sides. And when we don’t, we set out to make it better. No marriage is perfect. It takes hard work. But nothing worth having is easy. I’m proud of us, and that’s why I had to write it all down. Hopefully, readers will relate to our stories and advice, and get some laughs along the way." Don't worry, she also gives instructions on how to e-mail her new future bestseller!
