After the rehash of the rehash of the Melissa Gorga cheating rumors on this week's episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey, Teresa Giudice explains why they are still blaming her for everything and choosing to believe a known pot-stirrer.
Teresa starts out explaining that Joe Gorga and Melissa need to learn the right approach to dealing with rumors when you're on TV. "Unfortunately when you're on TV, people want what you have. They want to be on TV too and they'll do anything to make it happen or they just want to take you down because they're sick of watching you. I get it. I've seen it happen now on every season of every Housewives show in every city. It's not fun to be the target, but it comes with the territory. The problem is when newer cast members join and get attacked, they can freak out like Melissa and Joey were. You have to stay united and refuse to let any strangers break you down. But I get that it's hard. It shouldn't be hard for family to believe family over strangers, but…"

Teresa is really tired of taking the blame, but she gets it and explains why it's happening. "I'm definitely not happy to see where this season is going based on how Melissa and Joey are reacting to the rumors. It's all my fault again. I get it. It's easier to blame their own sister/sister-in-law than it is to blame a stranger. It sounds strange, but here's why. First of all, blaming me takes all of the emphasis off the actual rumors. Instead of anyone looking into those, they're all busy looking at me. Fine, deflect away. I'm here for you."
Tre continues, "Second, going after family is safe. They know I will never do anything to them. With a stranger, you can't be so sure. They don't want to go after Penny because she might take it to a whole new level. Easier to befriend her, right? I wouldn't be looking to make BFFs with someone who was talking to my ex-boyfriend and threatening to expose rumors about me, but that's just me." Yep, seems like Melissa is practicing "keep your enemies closer" when it comes to Penny.
Teresa shares her final point on why Melissa and Joe are choosing to believe Penny's version, "And third, family will always forgive you, and they know it. Family will always be there. To save themselves, they feel like they have to throw me under the bus. I don't like it but I can't do anything about it. They are going to believe what they want to believe. Their beliefs make no sense to me — they don't believe Penny one minute and the next they do. Pick one! They already confronted Penny at the Youthful 8 Milania Collection launch party and she told them I had nothing to do with it. But it wasn't enough for them. They had to keep going after her. Why? And when they did, suddenly Penny changed her mind that I had something to do with it. Why would she suddenly do that? Why didn't she say that when I was right in front of her?"
Teresa declares that she's done with this whole mess. She writes, "But it's how they've chosen to deal with this and I can't seem to stop them. I've done everything I could possibly do, and now I'm done. Done."
I have to admit that Teresa makes a lot of valid points. Why are Melissa and Joe not going after the rumor itself? They are more wound up about who spread it once it was out there….
