Melissa Gorga's new book "Love, Italian Style" hit shelves last week and has been getting an avalanche of negative press, not just for the bad writing, but for the terrible advice, too.
Among the pearls of wisdom Melissa andJoe Gorgadispel is that your man needs sex whether you want it or not and if your woman isn't in the mood, just rip her clothes off and make her in the mood. Some critics of the book felt that Melissa's husband calming tactics promoted marital rape! Not only that they called into question Joe's aggressive temper and wondered if it pointed to abuse. Oh my…
Since the Real Housewife of New Jersey star has a book to sell and teenaged girl fans to appease she quickly dismissed the criticism and claimed that her words were twisted by the media for some press. "That word is so disgusting to me and that's horrible," Melissa seethed to E! News.
Tia Mowry seems to be the type of woman who effortlessly juggles it all from her reality show, Tia & Tamera to being a new mom to 2-year-old son Cree.
And now she's returning to sitcom acting in the new show "Instant Mom". Tia's character, Stephanie, plays party-girl who marries an older man with children who she in-turn is forced to become a step-mother to! "I think Stephanie, like every mom, is trying to find a balance," Tia tells Essence of her new role and the similarities they share.
"We all know at the end of the day you can’t just be friends with your kids, because you give them an inch they take a mile. So it’s trial and error with her. We’re not perfect. Being a mother and a parent does not come with a handbook."
Caroline Manzo has already landed a spinoff aptly titled 'Manzo'd With Children' and in light of that has opted to leave the show. At least temporarily while she shoots a pilot for her new show! Some sources say Caroline may come back pending the spinoff's success, others say she is officially done!
My Magic Hate Ball predicts 'Try Again', Caro! I'm sorry while I think they're a sweet family, they just don't have much charisma or presence. I think that will be super boring to watch.
With the case summarily dismissedJacs hopped on twitter to celebrate! First of all, despite witness accounts, she denies hitting Johnny on the head with her shoe. "Disgusting that He lied about me hitting him w/a shoe!It never happened!I didn't do that! Raw footage proves that!" Yes… let's see this raw footage that likely exposes what a whole producer manipulated set-up this entire shenanigan was!
Lamar's father Joe (who has appeared on several Kardashian reality shows and has a history of drug abuse) tweeted that Kris and Khloe Kardashian drove Lamar to drug use and called Kris an "evil bitch."
In case you weren't aware, Lamar is reportedly addicted to crack, among other things and was using all throughout his stellar (until the Kardashians got involved!) NBA career. Anyway, Lamar fired back SUPPOSEDLY, writing, among other things: "How can a man who has NOT once called me to check on my well being have the nerve to talk so recklessly about his own 'son'. He is my downfall!" Now Lamar is denying that he ever wrote a pro-Kardashian rant and claims his twitter was hacked! Now that I believe!
TMZ reports that Lamar's friends say he absolutely did not write the statement defending the Kardashians as his "only family". In fact sources say Lamar currently has no internet and was completely unaware of the statements his father made on twitter. He's also still in hiding and when people come to the door he "confiscates their phones".
When Melissa Gorga "wrote" (as in scrawled with pink glitter pen in her trusty Lisa Frank Trapperkeeper) her book Love Italian Styleabout keeping your marriage to a poison-shrouded mini oaf hot and sexy, she had no idea that some of her very traditional, shall we say, advice may be called out as disrespectful. I mean it works for Melissa right – she gets to keep POISON! GAAAAAAG
Among the beliefs Melissa espouses, one central theme is: "Husbands want their wives to submit; wives want our husbands to dominate." That is a direct quote from her book. And husbands want to dominate in all aspects of the marriage – from sex, to the home, their wife's wardrobe!
