Melissa Gorga is no stranger to being in the middle of some drama. Since joining the Real Housewives of New Jersey, the On Display singer has been constantly locking horns with her sister-in-law, Teresa Giudice. But since their feud has been placed on hold, so Teresa and her husband can attend to their legal issues, Melissa has found another way to keep things interesting.
On last night’s episode, we saw Melissa stir the pot by telling the twins — Teresa Aprea and Nicole Napolitan0 — that Amber Marchese had been spreading rumors behind their backs. So how does Melissa justify her behavior?
Melissa Gorga, behind-the-scenes s#*!-stirrer and perpetual wannabe victim, tackled the double-trouble twins with some gossip and found that Teresa Giudice isn’t the only person who flips-the-f-out!
Before all that, Joe and Melissa embark upon a new career – one they’re suited for! Joe bought a big ol’ garbage truck and announced they’re in the garbage business. At first I thought he meant they ARE the garbage business, which of course, but they are for real compacting garbage. This type of garbage is a truck specifically designed to incinerate important papers. And if Juicy or Chris Laurita‘s “paperwork” are any indication – I say that truck is going to be doing a lot of business! Also now they can finally “smoosh” all evidence of Melissa’s past – like the Lookers! paychecks!
Andy starts off by showing the scene from the episode where Amber is talking ish with Melissa, claiming that she heard Nicole broke up someone’s marriage. Nicole says, “Amber just likes attention and if she’s gonna get it by making up lies and stories, so be it.”
On stopping by Amber’s house and not going in to clear up the gossip, Teresa says “We were going to confront Amber but out of the decency for her children we did not confront her that night and ring her doorbell because the children were there.” Nicole says there was no stalking going on. they pulled up and saw the kids were still up and they pulled away.
Stephen Zalewski, who starred in Danielle’s tape (along with a bagel), sued her for $100,000 for defamation after she accused him of leaking the tape on purpose – and Stephen won! Well the courts allowed Danielle to discharge that debt. Which means Stephen lost twice: once when he schtupped Danielle and again when he didn’t get his money from her!
It is bad news for Real Housewives of New Jersey and Game of Crowns. Real Housewives of New Jersey lost over 500K viewers, with 1.642 million total viewers (but only 994,000 viewers in the key demo) watching the holiday episode. The premiere of Game of Crowns did not garner 1.2 million viewers as previously reported. Actually, 666,000 watched the premiere and 516,000 watched this week‘s episode, and now Bravo bumped it out of its time slot next week in favor of Don’t Be Tardy.

Teresa shared in her episode blog this week that not only is she sorry about that slip directed toward Amber Marchese’s child, she’s also not sorry for finding Jim Marchese nauseating. Plus, she explains why we didn’t get a look at all of the gifts her family exchanged at Christmas. Her reason? She didn’t want to be tacky and a show off. Is she new here? Yes, yes she is!
Jim tells Joe Gorga, “I work with the same f**king attorney general that is prosecuting your brother, you dumbf**k.” Radar contacted the United States Attorneys’ office to ask about the claims James is making. They denied knowing him. “First of all, this man is incorrect. The Attorney General isn’t prosecuting the Giduices. The United States Attorneys’ Office is. As for the claims made by this man, we have never heard of him!”
“I wanted to clarify a few things from last week before I get into the details of this episode, especially after reading the twins’ blogs (I can’t help myself). The only thought that comes to mind with them is… chill out! None of us should take ourselves so seriously, especially considering we signed up for a reality show. I really hope everyone can see that I like to cut up and have fun,” Amber encourages. “I am giggling the entire time during my interviews. There will be moments that I tease others and moments that I get teased, nothing more than good-spirited fun. We are not curing cancer, nor am I conducting my oral thesis for a PHD.”
