Just moments ago, Melissa’s first single ‘On Display‘ premiered on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show. The single officially goes on sale on iTunes at midnight.
Melissa co-wrote the song and worked alongside producers Soul Diggazz who have worked with stars such as Beyonce, Missy Elliot, Mary J. Blige, and most recently Kelly Rowland earlier this year.
When asked how her music compares to the other housewives, Melissa stated, “I think they all have wonderful songs. I think it’s a little different though. I just think that everyone is going to be pleasantly surprised. It’s good, I like it. That was my first, as they go on they get better and better and better. The ballad is ridiculous.”
Well the audio is below! Take a listen. It’s actually not bad no?
The latest drama began on twitter Sunday night when former RHONJ star Danielle Staubstated Melissa was the one who fed her all the information about Teresa. If you recall, Danielle brought up Melissa’s son during the RHONJ reunion last year, accusing Teresa of not seeing her nephew. This of course set Teresa off bringing us the infamous shoving of Andy Cohen.
While Melissa has always maintained she was not the one who fed Danielle that information, Danielle is now stating otherwise even claiming she has proof in the form of voice mails and emails. Wowzers.
It all started when one of Danielle’s fans tweeted to her as well as Andy wanting to know why he felt the need to mention Danielle’s name on WWHL on Sunday night while Teresa was on. Danielle then tweeted back, “@bravoandy @bravotv is this true? Maybe I should show everyone what @melissagorga wrote my fb inbox about Teresa?” It didn’t end there as Danielle continued tweeting. Below are some of her tweets about Melissa -
“Wow careful now bc ive got emails from her own sisterinlaw w so much Teresa dirt.”
“@melissagorga Melissa Did you ever tell Teresa you were contacting me constantly?”
“@melissagorga did you tell tre you wanted to come on w me last season To get back at her”
“@melissagorga and everytime you & Tre’s brother begged me to come on w me – I said no!”
When a fan tweeted that Melissa was the one who fed Danielle the reunion info, Danielle responded with “she did indeed tell me how else would I know.”
Following Danielle’s tweets, Melissa tweeted the following denial – “Let’s be clear. After I posted abt the xmas cookies incident on FB she approached me to film w/ her. Did I film? No! Begged her? Please.”
Danielle then responded stating she has saved emails and voicemails from Melissa. “Be careful dear I saved all your lengthy emails and recorded your calls to me you sure you wanna lie ???” tweeted Dirty D. Danielle also claimed that on 11/09, Melissa sent this message – “”will you (DS) help me expose Teresa and Joe please?”
Teresa caught wind of Danielle’s tweets and even went as far as to tweet “thank you” to Danielle, the same woman who called her an ape last year and said she wanted to dress up as her for Halloween.
Teresa tweeted, “But someone else was tweeting tonight too. Thank you @daniellestaub for telling the truth. I’m sad but not surprised. #famewhore.” She is referring to Melissa as a famewhore and wrote that tweet just minutes after writing, “I’ve been on Twitter for 2 yrs now and I’ve NEVER ever ever retweeted a mean comment ab a castmember or family member…” Go figure. Teresa also described Danielle’s tweets as “heartbreaking.”
Fast forward to today and it seems Teresa might have had a change of heart. She tweeted Monday night, “I don’t believe Melissa would ever talk to @daniellestaub . Danielle, stop tweeting about my family. If you got something, show it or STFU!” But then again, in knowing Tre, this could just be her passive aggressive way of encouraging Danielle to leak whatever information she has.
As of the moment, it appears Danielle is working to release the voicemails and emails she claims to have of Melissa. Guess we will have to wait and see. If Danielle’s claims are true, then this family feud has definitely taken a turn for the nasty-ier. This could also be Danielle’s way of getting back on the show as her new show Famous Food is flopping on VH1. And as we reported, the 4th season of RHONJ is currently filming.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON DANIELLE’S TWEETS? DO YOU BELIEVE IT? IF TRUE, DOES THIS CHANGE YOUR OPINION OF MELISSA?
On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey the year may have changed, but everything is still exactly the same. Teresa can’t get along with anyone she is related to, by proxy or otherwise; Jacqueline can’t deal with Ashley, Caroline just wishes she had never gotten involved, and Melissa tries in vain to reason with crazy. Oh yeah, Kathy was there too – kinda.
The Caroline is back on the radio and she’s tawking about New Year’s Resolutions and Ashley calls in and said her resolution is to leave reality TV. I wish! The Caroline gets a call from a person who is being nice to someone who just won’t be nice back; Caroline encourages this person to continue to be good and pure. Guess who is coincidentally listening while wearing her fur coat? Melissa! Melissa, thinking – I’m a good and loving person dealing with someone who just won’t reciprocate, I will not be intimidated – calls Teresa to extend the Swarovski encrusted olive branch, and arrange a playdate between their girls.

On the 12th episode this season titled “Auld Lang Syne for an Eye,” the housewives get set to ring in the new year by trying fresh approaches to life: Teresa works on her new cookbooks; Melissa tries to live out her dream; and Caroline’s daughter vows to shed pounds. The gang then celebrates New Year’s Eve at the Brownstone, but backstabbing and finger-pointing prevail.
The episode airs at 10/9c and two preview clips are below!
Watch What Happens Live – The guests tonight will beTeresa Giudice and Jerry O’Connell.
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE PREVIEWS & TONIGHT’S NEW EPISODE?
It’s Jesus’ birthday on the Real Housewives of New Jersey, and Caroline celebrates with her diamond studded version of Silly Bandz, while Rich and Kathy celebrate with a six foot fried fish. The Gorgas and Guidices go head-to-head for the most modest Christmas ever, and the ever thoughtful Ashley forgets to buy gifts for Chris and Jacqueline. Plus, there’s an added supermodel cameo!
It’s a very juicy Christmas Eve dinner at the Guidices. The recently, and barely, repaired relationship between Teresa and her brother Joe is finally making headway, as he and his family are attending the melee. But wouldn’t you know it? The Gorga siblings’ horrible cousin Kathy has done the unthinkable…she’s invited Joe and Melissa to her house for Christmas Eve dinner as well. What’s such a popular couple to do? Well, attend both shindigs, of course, leaving Teresa forced to do what she does best–give her brother a guilt trip. She leads him into the dining room and shows him the place settings reserved for him and Melissa. Does the mean and hateful Kathy really want those seats vacant on Christmas Eve? Teresa and her brother are ALWAYS together Christmas Eve (newsflash, Teresa, he IS with you on Christmas Eve). Kathy is just a cousin, she can see Joe the day after Christmas. Boxing Day is a great day for cousins. Joe tries to play the peacemaker before he and his Gorgas peace out for Kathy’s dinner.

If you recall, Teresa has been angling to get on the show for over a year now. “I am thinking about doing Dancing With the Stars. What do you guys think?” wrote Teresa back in July 2010.
Well fast forward to today and Teresa is singing a different tune when it comes to DWTS, stating the show does not want any ‘Housewives’ on it. When a fan sent her a tweet saying she should be on the show, Teresa responded, “Would [love] to but they don’t want ‘Housewives’ this season. But Playmates are OK?”
DWTS has yet to respond to Teresa’s comment. Perhaps the show just doesn’t want Teresa this season or maybe they are really anti-housewives. But surely a ‘Housewife’ would be an upgrade from Rob Kardashian no?
Meanwhile, a new episode of the RHONJ airs tonight on Bravo! On the 11th episode this season titled “A Very Jersey Christmas,” it’s Christmas morning and housewives are stirring. Caroline receives a long-overdue present and Melissa considers herself the luckiest woman in Jersey. But there aren’t many ho-ho-ho’s for Teresa, whose holidays take a not-so-merry turn.
The episode airs at 10/9c and a preview clip is below!
Watch What Happens Live – The guest tonight is John Hickey. Not exactly sure who that is either but Andy Cohen tweeted this moments ago, “ATTN BIG BROTHER FANS: watch “watch what happens live” tonight at 11 for a big surprise just for you.”
And finally, as we reported this week, the 4th season of the Real Housewives of New Jersey is currently being filmed by Bravo. It also appears relationships between the ladies on the show are changing. For starters, Caroline Manzo seems to be getting closer to Melissa Gorga and even Kathy Wakile. Just this week, Caroline was tweeting back and forth with Kathy.
Lauren Manzo first made this tweet, “Just saw Sunday’s episode & I just LOVED it!!! I smiled the whole time!! @melissagorga & @joegorga were so cute! @Kathywakile made me cry!” Kathy replied that she had yet to receive the episode, and Caroline then tweeted twice to Kathy including this tweet – “That stinks. I watched it twice, the kids are gorgeous, every single one of them.”
It will be interesting to see how Teresa and Caroline’s relationship unfolds on the new season. If you recall, Teresa has been taking some not so subtle shots at Caroline in her Bravo blogs regarding Caroline’s relationships or lack thereof with some of her siblings. And as we all know, Caroline is very protective when it comes to her family. Can’t imagine the friendship between the two ladies will not be somewhat damaged or tested on the new season.
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE PREVIEW & TONIGHT’S EPISODE? SHOULD DANCING WITH THE STARS HAVE A HOUSEWIFE ON THE SHOW?
Yes, filming on the RHONJ season 4 has already began! In fact, it began weeks ago. This is pretty surprising as to my knowledge, Bravo has never filmed a new season of a Real Housewives series while the previous season was still on the air.
It is likely this is being done due to the extremely high ratings and the network doesn’t want to wait an entire year to push out a new season. There are also rumblings Bravo did this to captureTeresa Giudice’s bankruptcy fraud trial which was originally scheduled for mid July. As we reported, that trial has now been postponed to October 13. I am also hearing Bravo is planning to debut the new season this fall. Wowzers.
Meanwhile Perez Hilton recently reported the producers behind the show put out an ad looking for new housewives. I can however confirm all of the current five housewives have been filming so it’s likely Bravo is just looking to add an extra housewife to the mix.
In other news, after receiving backlash for the awful things her husbandJoe Giudice said about Melissa Gorga on the most recent episode of the show, Teresa is now blaming editing for Joe’s actions claiming he wasn’t trashing Melissa. While the Gorgas visited the Giudices for Christmas, all seemed to be going well until Joe decided to unleash some not so nice words about Melissa who was nearby but couldn’t hear. Bravo captioned Joe’s words on screen and below is the transcript of Joe’s exact words -
“I don’t give a sh*t about her”
“She’s a friggin’ animal”
“They’re f*cking animals”
“Who the hell would want to be that friggin’ racoon face over there? She’s a witch”
In Teresa’s latest blog on Celebuzz, she claims Joe wasn’t talking about Melissa but rather one of Melissa’s sisters – Lysa Simpson – and that Bravo simply edited it to make it appear he was trashing Melissa. “At my Christmas Eve party, sitting in his own house with his own brother-in-law, Joe was talking about Lysa NOT Melissa,” wrote Teresa. But how can Joe be talking about Lysa when he used the words “over there” to describe the person he was trashing? Need more proof? Below is a screen shot from the episode.
Perhaps Melissa’s sister was lurking in the room somewhere in Teresa’s home and went undetected by everyone including Bravo’s cameras. Even more interesting are the number of negative comments on Teresa’s Celebuzz blog. As you all know, Bravo has a policy of not posting the very negative comments on the housewives’ blogs on the Bravotv website.
Also interesting is the fact that those “f*cking animals” are not the ones going on trial for bankruptcy fraud, being arrested for DUIs, or facing 10 years in prison.
And finally, the most recent episode of the RHONJ featuring the smackdown of Kim Granatell was the highest rated episode of the season! Over 2.9 million viewers tuned in to see the Manzos take down the sh*t stirring Kim G. Sunday’s episode was up 15 percent among total viewers compared to the previous week’s episode.
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON TERESA’S DENIALS & JOE’S COMMENTS? ARE YOU EXCITED ABOUT THE POSSIBILITY OF A NEW RHONJ SEASON IN THE FALL?
Last night’s episode ofReal Housewives of New Jerseywas all about Jesus’ Birthday and in the spirit of Christmas everyone got along except for the notorious Kim G. – who really is incapable of getting along with anyone so she got thrown out of Jesus’ Party by the Manzo’s – who don’t let no body mess with their family.
Things pick up where they left off at Jesus’ birthday party. Melissa lets Teresa know she “got that bitch outta there” meaning Monica Chacone, who was Kim G. ’s plus one for about five minutes until Melissa escorted her politely to the door. Teresa gives her brother and SIL props for handling it well, BUT she wants to know why Kim G. was invited in the first place? Melissa says Kim is harmless which ummm…. What?! Please re-watch season 2, Melissa! However, Melissa calls a spade a spade when she describes that Kim G. and Teresa are eerily similar – in fact, so similar they may be “secret sisters.”
