Melissa took to her blog this week to share why she was just not into the therapy sessions at Miraval. Melissa says she's just all therapied out after the weekend in the mountains with Dr. V.
Melissa shared about this week's episode, "This was a strange one for me. I’m not going to sugar coat it, when I was told we were going to a spa resort in Arizona to celebrate my birthday, this is not exactly what I pictured. I don’t even think Joe quite understood what Miraval was."
About the horse therapy: "As I said that morning, I honestly did not want to do therapy and healing. Not that I didn’t want to heal our family, I just wanted to relax and for everyone to have a good time and enjoy our vacation. We had just done therapy at Lake George. We needed a break."

Melissa continued, "The horse therapy seemed to work for some and not for others. I was more than turned off by the “horse whisperer” sizing me up within a few seconds of meeting me. It seemed a little too contrived, but he seemed to break through to other people."
She goes on to praise her co-stars and their breakthroughs, but explains why she wasn't up for it. "I just wasn’t willing to go there. Part of it was skepticism about the entire idea of a horse being a Human Whisperer. Part of it was still not feeling great physically. But mainly, I couldn’t let down my guard. It would’ve taken a team of horses to kick down the wall I had up. Same thing with Joe and Teresa, apparently. Teresa and I were having fun together on the trip, but we weren’t at the point yet where we had enough trust to really open up. Some things can’t be willed. They have to come naturally. Pony steps…"
In other horse therapy news, Teresa Giudice took to Twitter to share that she wasn't happy with Bravo's editing of the episode. Apparently Teresa DID get the horse to lift his leg, but they didn't show it. "Lil upset that the scene was cut where I finally found the strength to lift up the horse's foot. #proudofmyself. It's not that I didn't want to complete the exercise, I was afraid of the horse."
